Location is excellent - next door to night markets, close to woolworths - ideal as the apartment is well appointed and you could easily self cater here. short walk to esplanade.

We travelled with another couple and were in Cairns for a week so we wanted a specific type of accommodation - self-contained; separate lounge room; walking distance to the Esplanade; close to many restaurants and cafes. We found it at Il Palazzo. Firstly speaking to Frances by phone and then meeting Kay and Donovan and Frances - they were all...

Is this place luxury, I'm not sure, however it met our needs perfectly. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for two nights in November. We arrived after closing at 6.30pm but it was no hassle, you press the intercom, Kay or Donovan answers, they direct you to your room and you do all the booking in the following morning....
