My husband, myself & our 8yr old child have been staying at Mantra on Cavill for the past 13 nights & we have one night left of our stay. We are on the 13th floor facing the beach. The property is in a fabulous location and the onsite parking (in such a central location) is very convenient. There is a Woolworths supermarket on the ground floor which is also a big plus for extended stays. The apartment has very worn furniture (the timber furniture is water damaged & has initials scratched into it) and the sofa bed is broken. We were told that someone stole the mattress but were provided with a rollaway bed instead.The bathroom & bedroom are both great & very clean. We can't use the oven because it's so dirty that the apartment fills with smoke when we turn it on. The central location means that there is plenty of noise outside and there is no double glazing! Construction outside began at 5am for the first few days and the pool fountains starts at the crack of dawn! The restaurant in the next street dumps their empty bottles at 11pm every night & again at 1am if it's busy. Every day our balcony has accumulated more and more cigarette butts, they seem to be blowing down from the higher floors. We are non-smokers.
The street traffic is loud and unending.
If location is important to you then this is a great place to be. If quality is important to you, then maybe look elsewhere.

We stayed here for our 1 year wedding anniversary and we were so impressed. We were room 2054 on the 50th level and we were so impressed great room and so spacious with everything you needed. Parking was included in the room price which was a pleasant suprise, Great pool area and amenities and close to everything. Well priced and a view to die for. People often want to look at the beach but we looked over the city of the GC and at night the view was so gorgeous. Highly recomended.

Room Tip: High level facing away from the ocean

After reading previous bad reviews I was nervous about our one week stay over the September school holidays but there was no need for concern. The rooms were very clean, yes there were probably some areas which needed thorough cleaning (tile grout etc) but overall was good. Agree, no doona cover, just a doona between 2 sheets but was clean and stayed secure the whole night. 2 bedroom ocean view apartment, we were on the 46th floor with magnificent views. A daily refresh was performed, much to my surprise. Our friends were in the same tower but a lower floor, hence different elevators but problem easily solved by exchanging our keys. Great location, the heart of Surfers and we were able to stroll each evening to our meals and excursions. checking in and out was a breeze. Hint - if you have a car and are using their parking, go straight to the lowest level, there are ample spots and what's one floor difference make with their fast elevators? Could do with more guidlelines etc. didn't know thta the pool areas get locked after 10pm and was left stranded on the cold (security didn't check to make sure area empty and no signage).

Room Tip: Ocean Views - make sure you get as high as you can and choose a corner apartment.

I was excited about this as a special treat for our daughter's birthday. We booked a one bedroom spa unit facing the coast for $440. For that price for one night I thought it would be good.
After a long drive, reception was fairly quick to check us in although I did have trouble understanding the lady's very strong accent.
Finding a car park was not so pleasant. Plenty of car spots but very limted ones with the required red "H" on them that we could find.... Seeing other cars driving around aimlessly, we were also not the only ones attempting to find a carpark.
Once in our room we found the double fold out sofa was damaged so that the area for feet was a good 20cm lower than the rest of the bed. Also no bedding for the sofa and only 2 towels fo 3 people. Our booking clearly showed 3 people.
I attempted to ring reception to have this resolved. Over 4 minutes later and the phone was eventually answered. Yes they would send up bedding, review the bed, bring in a new foldout bed and bring in a towel.
Over an hour later and still nothing. Bed time had arrived for our daughter and no bedding! After 68 rings finally Reception answered and said they would arrange bedding immediately.
30 minutes later we decided to take our restless child out for a walk.
When we arrived back to our room the broken fold out sofa had been made up into a bed. A shame her feet were a good 20cm lower than the rest of her body. We used an assortment of cushions to prop the bed up.
Not good enough for a room costing over $400 for one night.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean side but be warned the noise from the streets below are quite strong - ven though we w...

I organise a Girls Weekend Away each year for a small group of friends. It began as only one night but after staying at Circle On Cavill we changed it to two. This year was our third year at the hotel and we will be back again. I love it. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. The rooms are outstanding with magnificent views. I have also stayed there for a long weekend with my family. It is in a fabulous location, great facilities and I can't rave enough about the views. I am hoping to have many more stays with them.

Room Tip: my perfect room was on around the 35th floor, south tower, 3brm. Huge balcony, stunning views - AMAZ...

This was our 2nd time staying here with our 2 girls, it is a great place to stay, friendly staff, just perfect, this time I had booked a 2 bed hinterland room and on arrival we were upgraded to a 2 bed ocean which was fantastic, we love staying here that we have just booked 10 nights from the 12th Dec and can't wait.
