Loved the room. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

A roof-top swimming pool, gym, five restaurants and bars, boutique casino, conference spaces and a unique Wildlife Dome.
I have to tell anyone from the US that 4star over here does not mean the same as 4 star in the US. That being said, I would book here again due to location/price. But I would definitely be sure to get a room on a lower floor closer to the WIFI signal! The location makes it very much worth it!
Pros: Location! Perfect! Next to the night markets. Close to grocery store! We don't drive in Au so we really liked the location.
Cons: Terrible internet in our room. We VERY MUCH need WI-FI where we go so we book specifically with that in mid. I think our room was just to far away. I couldn't do much on the net AT ALL!

Pros: Amazing location walking distance from the harbor with many shops and restaurants within the same complex. Luxurious and modern rooms without feeling pretentious.
Cons: Breakfast service was $20 and most of the buffet choices were unappetizing; the omelettes and French toast prepared on request by the chef were pretty good but overall there are likely better options around Cairns. The pool was really nice but closed unusually at 8pm.
Pros: We wanted to be able to relax and unwind at our first destination in Australia, this was definitely the place, the pool was very relaxing and the sunrise on the marina side was breathtaking. They had our room ready and allowed us to check in early. They also had complementary champagne and chocolates upon arrival. They also upgraded our room to a higher level so we had a better view of the bay. The location is with in walking distance to everything, including the ferries at the marina. All in all one of the best parts of our stay was the staff, they were all so welcoming, accommodating and extremely pleasant (esp Kelly and Luke!). I would definitely stay here again.
Cons: pool furniture showed some signs of wear.
Pros: Very disappointing hotel more like 2 stars.
Very old not Kleenex bad service.
Value for money zero.
Don't stay here!!!!!

Cons: Wifi reception was poor in the rooms.
Cons: During our stay the towel was not very clean coz I saw three times the hair in the towel.
Pros: The proximity to the harbor, the restaurants and the facility was top notch. We loved our stay.
Pros: The staff were awesome; generally very friendly
Cons: This hotel is not representative of the Shangri-La group, and I struggle to see how it maitains a 5-star rating. The showerdid not drain properly, grit between the shower tiles is black in places, the fan is chipped, carpet stained, phone's "quick dial" buttons did not work, and the room is old and dated and sparsely furnished.

Pros: Nice sized comfortable rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Great location.
Cons: There was a little mold/mildew on the shower curtain, possibly due to the hot/humid climate but the hotel should change those more often. Wifi is good quality but relatively expensive at $25/day. The front desk hours are only 8am - 6pm so that's a consideration as well.

Pros: The staff at the Mantra Esplanade really go above and beyond and the hotel is really a steal at the price we paid. Please do note that you'll probably have to buy your own internet!

Balcony in the room with a view of the Esplanade

Pros: I needed an affordable place in Cairns to do some work. This was a cheap motel-like hotel that had a very comfortable, renovated, modern room, with solid wifi (unlike other motel-like places, they have full wifi as opposed to just two-hour vouchers you need to keep asking for more).
It was pretty quiet.
It's a 15-minute drive from town, so you need a car or use Uber. There are a few restaurants around, though, if you just need to grab a meal.
Cons: The place seemed to be going through renovation so there was some unsightly stuff around the common areas (equipment etc). But the room was great.
