    The area allows us to have sea breeze in the evening time so that the heat during the day may be relieved. The BBQ, the picnic and other local facilities are good and helpful. I saw many doing their evening bike walk or natural walking. This was the place where the Lunar New Year 2021 fireworks took place: very spectacular!

    Awesome hostel in a perfect location right across the street from the Cairns Esplanade Lagoon. Short walk (5 min) to the ferry terminal where Great Barrier Reef cruises depart. Right next to the Night Markets. Great WiFi and there is a beautiful patio on the 4th floor with a great view. There is also a common lounge and large kitchen. Rooms and bathrooms were nice, shower was great.

    Tidy hotel with a nice pool, not too far from the Cairns Esplanade. The room was comfortable, with a good air con and serviced well. Plenty of free parking on the street outside. A few more deck chairs around the pool would be helpful, but the pool itself was never too crowded. Doors slam shut quite loudly, but otherwise it's a very quiet hotel. Wifi was free but very weak and slow.

    I was here for business, great wifi, restaurant convenient downstairs, polite and friendly staff, secure undercover parking in the basement, pretty much ticked all the boxes for my stay. Stones throw from the beautiful cairns esplanade and new dining precinct, also managed to catch a show at the nearby performing arts center.
