I booked the Cairns Aquarius based on the perception received from their web site of modern, beautifully appointed apartments. The reality upon arrival was a unit that more closely resembled a budget 1970’s beach flat. Not at all what we were expecting for the price, particularly when I had phoned to make the booking and specifically asked for a description of the unit and even stated that I had looked at the web site. This would have been the perfect opportunity for Annette to point out that not all units are up-to-date or as depicted on the site, but she was more interested in getting my credit card details pronto…
Based on their blatant misrepresentation I wouldn’t recommend the Cairns Aquarius to anyone, not until they either bring their units into the 21st century or at the very least make some attempt to differentiate them and charge accordingly. I’d suggest you’d find much better value elsewhere, even if you have to pay slightly more.
