Great apartment suited for families especially with young children (would suit older children as well). Ground floor apartments had small grass area out front of apartment. Facilities great. Great priced. Amentities inside apartment good. Close to all facilities within city area. Highly reccomend stay. We would return.

We have just stayed at Aquarius Cairns for 5 days for a family visit/get together which I do each year. This is the first time staying at Aquarius, but definitely won’t be my last. We stayed in unit No 3 which is classed as a Garden view unit. We found this unit to be very well appointed with everything you would want in a unit for a holiday with nice garden view and also water views (somewhat obstructed by the foreshore trees). The unit has 2 bedrooms and bathrooms, large living areas, well-appointed kitchen (with more than enough appliances) and large laundry room. Access into and out of the building was easy and secure.
It is very close to all the Esplanade restaurants, so you can walk to wherever you want to go – a big plus. All the shops are within an easy 5 minute walk and the Pier just 10 minutes away.
WiFi access is not available, but my 3G Tablet easily picked up its signal no problem.
I would recommend very highly this accommodation complex. It is not the run of mill resort, as many of the units are residential, so there is no front desk – you basically look after yourself, with the unit manager on site for assistance, which we did not need. The Managers (Annette and Don) were wonderful to work with when booking the unit (which I found on the internet), and very efficient with booking details etc.
We will be looking no further for accommodation in Cairns for our next family reunion next year.

We have been staying at the Aquarius for the last 5 days. a very comfortable apartment, enjoyed having 2 bathrooms with 2 teenagers! Loved the ocean view and the location of the Awuarius cannot be faulted. my only quibble- we would have liked more large drinking glasses- certainly we had enough for 4 people, but not all were matching and some were quite small. i would also have liked at least one complimentary sachet of washing powder- a small thing but I have received this in other places that did not cost as much per night. Overall, a wonderful stay.

I have just got back visiting my sister and all all her family,I was traveling with my mum who is 80 and not to mobile.This place was perfect large enough to entertain a large family with every thing you need in the unit very clean and what a great view.A bit strange not having a reception person just leave the key in safe and a code sent to you befor your arivel.The only problem was no wifi or Internet.so close to great food spots ,very easy to get information about tour just next door,we will be defiantly be going back.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 44 in the middle great view
