We were very happy with our stay a 181 The Esplanade. Location great right on the Esplanade and out unit # 25 had an amazing view of the waterfront. Unit was 90's styling ,very spacious and well supplied. Location great right next to the hospital and quiet area. Only a 10 -15 min walk along the boardwalk to lagoon and marina area if you want some action. Would definitely stay again if in Cairns.
