There are just so many hotels in Cairns I always expect competitive edge..good value for $.....this was acceptable but not outstanding.
TV reception was lousy but I didn't complain ( so may have been a one off fault).

The people there, Sandy and Tony were really nice people! They were very welcoming from when we entered until we left. Sandy was really helpful in giving us suggestions on where to visit and what to do and helped to settle all the bookings of the tours. We didn't have to worry about a thing!

As for the room, it was really spacious and we had a room that faced the Esplanade, which gave a fantastic view. We woke up every morning to the sun and waters and a fantastic view. The kitchen was also fully furnished with a fridge, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, cups, utensils, everything!

They also had a small pool which was nice to just relax by and dip yourself in. Most importantly, there was the BBQ pit next to it! It was free to use and really convenient.

The place is really like a home outside home. Perhaps the only only fault you can find of it would be the location since it isn't exactly in the city centre, but should not be a worry if you are going for the tours and all since they would probably pick you up from there too! Plus it would mean that it's not as busy and noisy that if it was in the city centre!

We arrived at midnight in Cairns arrangements made for key pick up - no problems.
Reception staff at the suites were welcoming and helpful. Our apartment was serviced once during our week visit which was all we required. Units are spacious and clean as per the photos on the web site. Kids loved pool and spa. We hired a car to run into the lagoon pool and restaurants. A walk to the Cairns main lagoon pools at top of the esplanade would take 30 to 40 minutes. Our kids 10 and 12 found this a little long. The only bad point to these suites was occasional noise from plane departures which was worse at the weekend. We enjoyed Charlies all you can each dinner with seafood which was about a minute walk and very reasonably priced. Liked the Skyrail but not so keen on the return by rail (scenery limited views by vegetation and takes a couple of hours - quiet humid when full at holiday time). Went on Frankland Island cruise for the day - got great family discount. Great team runs this service. Fantastic lunch. Swam with the turtles - lovely coral. Medium size groups - Great supervision and information - Our kids made great friends and had a terrific day. Overall loved Cairns.

Hotels in Cairns are generally not great value for money, so Coral Towers is still decent when compared to the rest in town. But since we visited from Gold Coast where the apartment scene is extremely competitive, the rooms here felt cramped, tired and old in comparison, rather like a retiree house.

Realistically it takes close to half an hour to stroll to the city centre, and there's no amenity very close by, so be ready to walk long distance or take the overpriced taxis. The seashore is right outside which sounds great, but then you realize Cairns has no beach, only mudflats affording poor views.

The female owner is informative yet way too money-minded which left us with a sour taste. We had five people booking several days' worth of tours but she refused to offer any discount, saying it's only for over 20 people. Then she gladly took her usual 20% commission, worth hundreds of dollars for half an hour of "helping". We have seen much more gracious tour advisors during the trip.

Furthermore, she asked us to pay for calling taxi and ordered us to bring garbage bags from our room to the ground floor collection area upon departure. Rather unusual demands to hotel guests (this is not a budget hostel after all), not to mention she said these in a very self-righteous manner. The male co-owner is very polite, however.

My family and I stayed here for 7 nights in late August. We enjoyed our stay and found the managers and staff to be helpful and friendly and the accomodation to be reasonably good value for money. The apartments are spacious, very clean, well maintained, well set out, lots of fans and A/C (certainly needed in warmer months), with a good kitchen and two bathrooms. We had a corner apartment with a nice view of the Esplanade. The grounds are very nice, well maintained and clean with a nice pool area. Re the negatives. There aren't many but include: the planes are very loud and frequent, it is a long walk into town, the corner apartments would be very warm in the summer months, our bed was quite uncomfortable and the unit was not serviced all week which would have been good after 4 days. These are not complaints at all, just observations. Re value for money, I think these apartments are reasonable value for money, neither great value or over-priced. All up, it was pretty super and I would recommend this complex.
