Reviewed 29 May 2013

My partner and I stayed here for a couple of nights and found it to be a perfect venue to enjoy the sights of Surfers. We had a great room with epic views of the ocean. The buffet breaky was great and the staff extremely helpful. I was even served up a decent coffee by the GM!

Happy to recommend.

Room Tip: Get ocean View!!

Considering the Gold Coast offers so much in the way of Hotel, Motel and Resort Style accommodation my husband and I both thought the Hotel was Average. It was clean and tidy with Apartment facilities available like a kitchen with everything or most things included, washing machine and drier etc. Mantra have a restaurant about 15 to 20 steps from the front desk and yet it's not as competitive to the restaurants that are within walking distant from the hotel. Sun City is NOT in the heart of Surfers Paradise but most things are about a 10 to 15 minute walk away. We stayed Two 3 day weekends and I feel that for the price I would of liked to had a bit more service like clean towels each day, top ups on tea and coffee, ashtrays outside so people don't throw their cigarette butts over the rails and land on my balcony while trying to enjoy the views.

Room Tip: If you want your Privacy Self Contained Apartment is the way to go.

Stayed two nights, two bedroom condo with great ocean and city views. A few blocks from the main street. Just one block from beach. A new light rail / trolly line being built just outside. Very clean and everything you could ask for.

This is a great hotel situated right in the heart of Surfers Paradise. We did stay here a couple of time and always had ocean view self contained apartments. They are modern, clean and amazing. It is a great hotel if you are staying with some friends of even for couples.

Room Tip: Ocean View rooms are great.

We stayed at the Mantra Suncity 04/05/2013 for 6 nights. We had a One Bedroom Ocean Apartment which offers clean and comfortable surroundings with the added convenience of a fully equipped kitchen and laundry. They feature a private balcony offering breathtaking views of the Ocean as well as tea and coffee making facilities, air-conditioning, cable TV and in-house movies.
Located just one block from the beach, Mantra Sun City is the ideal for your Surfers Paradise stay. When you’re not spending your days exploring the bustling beachside city, enjoy the many guest services and leisure facilities we have onsite.

There is an in door heated swimming pool which we used all the time and a fantastic Aztec-inspired pool featuring snake-like waterslides. The spa and gym are great. Sayas Restaurant has delicious food and happy hour between 5pm to 6pm daily.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone " BRILLIANT"

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are the better rooms.

Have stayed in Surfers before and found it quite noisy so was hesitant to stay there again however SunCity is on the Northern end so noise wasnt a problem at all.
Absolutely fantastic staff that were all really friendly and helpful. We stayed in a one bedroom ocean view and the views of the sunrise/sunset and beach were incredible! Indoor Pool and Spa area amazing, the area is massive so didnt feel overcrowded when others were in there also. We dont have kids, but there are waterslides etc so would be fantastic for those that do! Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Getting an ocean view room is highly recommended!

Had read some bad reviews on here so were slightly worried, we arrived far too early, the staff on the front desk were awesome, checked to see if our room was ready but it wasn't. All good though we knew that may be the case, had no issues with checking in, the staff, the rooms, or the property. We had a 1bd ocean view apartment, and were very comfortable. We had room service from the restaurant and enjoyed the meal, it was a bit small but not really a big deal to us. Had a great weekend away and will definitely return to Mantra Sun City
