This location is perfect for Cairns. In the heart of the marina and next to the Lagoon.
There are several great upscale places to eat around the hotel. The location lends itself to walking. The marine terminal is next to the hotel as well as the Reef Casino.
The hotel has a small shopping mall attached to the property as well as several bars. The bars can be noisy at night but tolerable.
The hotel staff was extremely kind and personable. I have always encountered great service at the Shangri-La.
The rooms are a bit drab and seemed to be geared to the Japanese tourist from the design of the bath tub. The beds are comfortable and the amenities are all functional. The hotel pool is very nice and a kids pool is located to the side of the main pool. The jacuzzi at the time of this review was not operational.
There is a tourist desk located in the lobby to help with booking tours.
