Fully recommend The Aquarius in Cairns. Amazing views, beautiful rooms and located minutes from everything. Would definitely stay there again. Great for families or couples. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay.

There was mould on the ceiling and in the cupboards, There were holes, dents, scratches all over the Apartment and bubbling of the paintwork like there had been a water...

Dear Varcoe Family, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with Cairns Aquarius. I am disappointed to read that you did not enjoy your stay with us.

We stayed in a Premium apartment at Cairns Aquarius for four nights in July. The apartment was spacious and clean. The view is perfect overlooking the ocean and we ate all our meals on the large verandah. The Cairns Esplanade was between us and the sea and we enjoyed watching all the activity going on at the outdoor gym and...

I stayed at the Aquarius in part of a group of four, and my main problem with the place was that the location was great and the apartment was not so great. Upon entering we had discovered that there was only two bed when we had clearly asked for three and that did cause problems but when given another bed...

My family of 3 stayed in apartment #77 for 6 nights in June. I'm a bit mixed on this one. On the plus side, the location and view cannot be beat anywhere on the Esplanade.

You couldn't ask for a better location! The 2 bedroom apartment we had was beautiful, modern and spacious. The view was spectacular! We were located in a perfect location right off of all the restaurants, marina and Esplanade. I would recommend this to anyone who wanted to stay in Cairns!!
