Mantra Trilogy
Ranked #23 of 63 Hotels in Cairns
Reviewed 21 October 2010

We stayed in a one bedroom waterfront apartment on the 7th floor. It was clean & comfortable. The views were excellent across the bay & up & down the esplanade. Mantra has a no party policy & nights were very quiet. We heard no noise from the restaurants on the esplanade. The pool was lovely & very underused so there was always ample pool furniture to use. The staff were super helpful & suggested we take extra bathroom & pool towels whenever we wanted. We did the Horizons "Waterfalls, Lake Barine, Mamu walkway & Paronella Park" Tour. It was a fantastic day, especially Paronella Park which I recommend to all. If you have a car it is an easy 1 hour drive south from Cairns to get there.

We stayed at Mantra Trilogy for 5 nights at the start of August 2010. We booked a 2 bedroom dual key apartment which was perfect for what we needed. I did extensive research before booking this accommodation and I'm glad I did. Out of all the other hotels I saw whilst in Cairns, this would have to be the best. It's located right on the esplanade and walking distance to EVEYTHING (Restaurants, shopping, lagoon etc...) There were other resorts located along The Esplanade, but none looked as nice and new as ours. The staff are more than helpful with any tourist info you need and they have a whole wall of brochures for you to browse. Our room was very clean, despite previous reviews about mould etc... The pool is very nice - but was almost always deserted, so we had that to ourselves every time we used it. The Mantra suggested one of the Great Barrier Reef snorkelling and diving cruises to us, this would have to be one of the best experiences of my life - Please ensure that if you are going to Cairns, Visit the reef - its AMAZING!!! We are planning to visit cairns in the next couple of months and will definitely be staying here again!

Says in room brochure individual air conditioning but when we complained that we were very hot and thought our air con was not working, maintenance said that the whole hotel was at the same temperature and could not be made cooler.
Room smelt musty and damp, our clothes became damp, beds were damp.
No where to unpack your luggage, needs a luggage rack.
1 X approx 9inch towel rail and 1 hook in bathroom only no where to hang bath mat, hand towel etc.
No shelves or drawers for undies, shorts and t shirts except bedside table or a shelf at top of wardrobe I needed to be on a chair to get to. 4 wardrobes with only 6 hangers.
Plugs in sink and bath did not fit and would not hold water.
Not suitable for more than an overnight stay.

Booked for 2 families & got a huge open plan 1 bedroom with internal door to another room on 6th floor (with sea view), & a dual-key on 3rd floor (overlooking pool) both in tower 2.

All 8 including 2 kids were stoked with our choice & we got a great price.

Reception staff were well-drilled & courteous. We needed an internal door unlocked, & a missing plus replaced- both tasks carried out immediately.

Location is fantastic- equi-distant between Muddies playground & the fake beach with all the conveniences of the city nearby. Pool onsite was great however we copped a bit of cloudy/ windy weather & the location on 3rd level left it a bit exposed. No problem when the sun was beating down.

Some tips, if you're on the outside of tower 2, you'll get a view but be prepared to hear the rubbish truck & roadsweeper early each morning. That mouldy smell- it's the tropics- get used to it. The use of carpet with deep underlay in corridoors seems to be the problem here. Apartments were clean & well presented.

There are 3 towers in this development. Get a feel for what will suit your needs best & don't be afraid to ask for it.
