Stayed here in January 2009 and the 2 bedroom apartment was excellent. The décor was bright and fresh the room very clean plus lots of room to move.

We found that the room was very quiet inside and the facilities Pool and BBQ area’s exceptional. The booking process for the BBQ worked a treat.

Great view of the ocean from the balcony

A nice walk along the beach to Surfers main streets, as well as being close by the café’s and restaurants at Broadbeach.

Highly recommended accommodation

Beautiful Place, swimming pool and spa great but really that was about it. Spacious appartments, mostly clean but not so nice lying in bed looking up at the air con with dirty brown marks on the bottom of it...that i cleaned off, the one in the lounge was the same. Had trouble with air con and microwave and one of the girls on reception was most helpful which was lovely to see as we were greeted by the most unfriendly girl who should not be in hosp, no hello, smile, welcome nothing, Lara if you happpen to read this your people skills are shocking and you dont leave a good name for mantra wings at all. Small things like service leave a lasting impression!
We stayed in a deluxe room, but wouldnt call it a deluxe. King bed made out of 2 singles was most uncomfortable. All in all good location but wont be back to stay at this place.

Stayed at the Mantra in January 2009. We booked 3 apartments because we were celebrating a 75th birthday for my father. Booked through Stellar Resorts. Booked 8 mths in advance. Day before I was to pay, I had a message on my answering machine to say that I needed to pay by end of day. Did not get message until I got home from work, was too late. I had send a bank cheque week before. Did not even call me on mobile or make any effort to contact me before cancelling my booking. Could not get all apartments back, had to move last night. Mantra disappointing. Rooms were average and dirty. Blinds were dirty, glass on balcony was filthy. Toilet door lock was broken. Paintwork on doors was barely there. Facilities were nice enough. Pool was nice. Would I stay or recommend this to anyone. Definitely NOT!

This was a great place to stay with the family. We stayed in a 3 bedroom deluxe room on the 7th floor. We had views overlooking the Nerang River, a vacant block of land and the ocean, so a bit of everything. Now the apartment itself was well appointed with nice furniture and a great kitchen (allthough the fridge kept beeping when opened which was a bit annoying). Heaps of storage space and a great laundry. Beds were very comfortable. Balcony had a nice table with 6 chairs. Noise was at expected levels being on the highway, but after the first few nights you get used to it. Reception staff were pleasent enough on check in. Pool area was fantastic, my daughter loved the fact that it had it's own little beach before getting into the pool. Also it has a great wading section for little kids which was great for our 3 year old. She especially liked the kids playground which she used to dry off after a swim. Location was pretty good, not too far from either Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach and only a few minutes walk to a patrolled beach. Overall, a nice place to stay for the family.

Very pleased with the standard of our room. We stayed in a 1 bedroom deluxe room with two bathrooms. Only there for 1 night but overall very impressed. Spotlessly clean and lots of facilities in the room. Would definitely stay there again.

First of all, my advise to everyone, never ever ever stay to this aweful hotel. I have booked this hotel for 6 nights. Hotel claims, they are 4.5 star rating but trust me its not near even to 2 or 2.5. They charge $150 per night for 0ne bedroom. Its about 1KM from surfer paradise. I am sure you will get some good places in that price

1. Location is near to highway so even you will close all your windows and doors, continous traffic will wake you up the whole night

2. Air conditioning is poor. In my case there was water leakage from air con even though I have reported to them, they have not fixed it

3. Found cockroaches in the room

4. Customer service is really bad. We reached 30 minutes prior to check in time, rooms were not ready. Lady at reception asked us to leave our contact number and she will call us. We went to nearby market then and waited for call till 4.00 pm but never received any call from her. When we came back to hotel, no apologise from her

5. Rooms were not clean at all. You can easily see marks all over the carpet.

6. Sofas were not clean as well. Can see the dust easily

7. Bed sheets , pillows looked very old

We stayed at the Mantra Wings in April 2008. At that time it was a BreakFree property, but it doesn't appear that much has changed other than the name (and price). It's a lovely resort in a great location. Fabulous views, even from the back. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We particularly liked the facilities: a wonderful (and warm) swimming pool, a tennis court and BBQ facilities. The pool is excellent for kids with a contained shallow area and a little waterfall to play under. Kids were also climbing up on the "rocks" and jumping in. Parking is underneath and very convenient.

I'd definitely go back here if we were travelling back to the Gold Coast with children.
