“Fantastic location, highly recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2011

I can recommend this hotel without hesitation.

We booked a two night stay in a two bedroom apartment and organised for a room with a view of the ocean. We were allocated room 2102 which had great views of the beach and was a well appointed apartment.

The location of the apartments makes it handy to be able to access a life-saver attended beach, the heart of Surfers Paradise for night life and dining and convenience stores for holiday grocery needs.

The facilities on site include a restaurant, a couple of pools (including one with water slides, which was great for kids) and guest car parking for visitors.

Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Room 2012 had a great ocean view.

I reviewed this place before we booked, and I must say, some people are just too hard to please. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in unit 1503 which was a 2 bedroom Ocean View - the view was spectacular and the room was huge with ample amenities. The only gripe I would have is the blinds are not block out and the sun rises very early. The breakfast was extremely nice, we had a deal for $10 per person, which was more than worth it. The pool areas were very nice and the water slides were heaps of fun. Great location with a bottle shop over the road as well as a general store and fish n chip shop. Walking distance to town 5 minutes. I thought Mantra Sun City was by far the best place we have stayed out of about four resorts on the Gold Coast. Don't hesitate to book this resort.

Room Tip: Book an Ocean View - it's a must....

We had an awesome time at Mantra Sun City. Its a great location, not far from the beach and a short walk from town. Our room was perfect and well maintained. The pool complex is up there with the best I've seen and we received great service from the friendly staff. A special thanks to Chris Clarke for looking after us.

Room Tip: Go for a beach facing apartment

We stayed at the Mantra for 2 nights and our experience was as follows, Arrived at 10am was told our room would be ready as soon as the last tenant leaves. Waited till 2:10pm before we were allowed into the room even though im sure they would have checked out already. Got in, the room living room was spacious but bare. Nothing special, Tv was small in comparison to most other places we've stayed at. Bedrooms were all very bare and boring. Lighting was very dull, could barely put on my makeup. BUT. That was nothing compared to the fact that there was at least dozens and dozens of roaches. Big ones, smaller one, eveywhere. From the kitchen counters to the living room table. BOTH bathrooms had roaches too. We kept all our luggages and bags closed because it just did not feel safe in fear of the roaches crawling in. Thats it really, A none interesting stay at a very creepy crawly place.

We stayed at the Mantra for 5 nights all i can say is LOVED it. When we first walked in my husband wasnt that excited but then we got into our room, we stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with ocean view on the 11th floor. the view was amazing and the apartment was so big, loved the tv in lounge room and the bedroom. Loved the pools outside and that there was beach sand at the shore (my daughter loved this) also loved the spa and heated pool inside Very clean and tidy. Staff were so friendly we felt like royalty. One day there was alot of wind and the pools got covered in dirt and tree clippings from it, that same day there was a worker out there cleaning it up. Highly recommend this hotel to everyone. Our room was very child friendly. Next trip to the gold coast will definately be staying here again. Thank you guys.
