We (6 adults and a young baby) stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with ocean views. We were very impressed with the apartment. It was modern, well-designed, very spacious, well-equipped and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Lisa in reception, who was always smiling and happy to advise us re tours etc. The pools were great and... More

Stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bed/bath apartment which was just fantastic, home from home comforts with all the amenities you could wish for. Excellent location right on the esplanade with a lovely pool too. Staff very friendly and helpful even out of hours.

This was a perfect place for our family getaway. It is right next to Muddy's playground, is a small walk to the lagoon and is close enough to the main restaurant district without being noisy. The pool is also long enough to do some laps in the morning and the gym facilities are good enough.

We stayed at Vision apartments for 8 nights. Our apartment was very spacious with excellent kitchen. We were on the 6th floor, we had quite good views over the ocean from the balcony.

Unfortunately couldn't get the penthouse, but then again after reading it was a ground walk out to pool didn't get too disappointed. Booked the next best one available being a deluxe. Located on the side of the building, don't book if you are expecting a view, and lets face it, why stay in Cairns without a view. Apartment nice enough,... More

Our bottom floor apartment was spacious, modern and very comfortable. We walked out of the front doors to the pool. The staff, especially Cathy at the front desk, were very friendly and helpful with all enquiries about nearby cafes, shops and bookings for the Great Barrier Reef tours. Highly recommended.

We were disappointed with the room we were given, however staff were very apologetic and could not move us anywhere else.
