I picked Mantra Trilogy for its location and the ensuite laundry again. We had a one bedroom apartment that overlooked the harbour as well as the pool. Right downstairs were shops, a small supermarket, cafes and restaurants. It was also a short walk to the Cairns Night Market and the Marina. Right across from the hotel was the salt water lagoon pool operated by the city.
Can't beat the location, but there's one big problem - even though the buildings were a few years old, there was a mouldy smell, probably because of its proximity to the sea and it had carpeting instead of ceramic tiles. I was allergic to the mould and my sinus was all plugged up while I stayed there. I couldn't get a single night's good sleep.
Next time I would make sure I pick a hotel with ceramic floor if it's oceanfront.
