Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns Reviews


Nadia Mil

Stayed just before Christmas in a Family Room. We all loved it. Heaps of room, the children loved the Bunk Beds with 2 TV's and the table they could sit & colour-in at. We could relax in the room while the kids had fun! Thank you for the Free Kids Colouring-in Packs & such friendly service!! We arrived early; so they let us check-in an hour early (I didn't ask they offered). We enjoyed the Buffet Breakfast, including the Pancake Maker & I loved the coffee maker. Was fantastic being located across from Muddy's Play Ground (which is awesome) & was on our 'to do list'.
