The greatest challenge I face when looking online for a beachside room is ensuring the location is indeed "beachfront" and the views will be available from my room. There are many options to choose from at Coolangatta and as soon as I arrived I knew that Mantra ticked all the boxes. Our room was on the 8th floor (above the tree-lined beachfront), the views were spectacular, there was just one road to cross to get to the beach and, within a block, a vast variety of shops and eating options.
Apart from that, the room had all the facilities we expected, albeit that the building is not new. The room was spacious and had a generous balcony. To top it off, the smiles and support from the Reception staff were sincere. We asked for two extra pillows and one of the Reception staff was at our door smiling within a minute. In so many other places, I've been told "I'll refer your request to housekeeping" or "We're busy on Reception, I'll bring the pillows up when it's not so busy".
All in all, we had a great stay.

Room Tip: There are many more floors above the 8th but certainly from this level, you have clear views of the...

Dear TaringaTravellers

Thank you so much for your extensive and positive review of your recent stay here at Mantra Coolangatta Beach. We really do have a fantastic spot here and we are definately the only apartment complex which opens directly on to the beach, seconds from the water.

It's great to hear that our staff looked after you so well, customer service is certainly something that is so important and something that we pride ourselves on daily.

Thank you again and I do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back to visit Coolangatta real soon.

Kind Regards

The view from the apartment across to Coolangatta Beach was spectacular. Full marks! The noise was not so good - seems to be party central into the late night. Parking is meant to be available but there seems to be not enough green stickers and too many red stickers that mean you are not allowed to park in that particular parking space - seems to be for exclusive use of owners. The reception is only open until 8.00pm so need to ensure that you have organised your arrival if you need help with checking in. I managed to wipe my swipe card access details and so late one evening (inevitably) had to negotiate help to get into the apartment with the night cleaning staff and no lift and room access until the reception opened the next morning. The apartment was clean and tidy. Great to have the kitchen and extra room (lounge room and separate bedroom) so added space was very good.

Room Tip: Make sure that you get a view of the ocean from bedroom and lounge room and stay away from hotel on...

Dear Kerry B

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent experience staying here at Mantra Coolangatta Beach, we are so glad you enjoyed the view.
Coolangatta does have many recreational and leasure facilities and as such is succepteble to noise. Like all popular holiday areas, any undue noise that occurs outside of the resort grounds is outside of our control.
Unfortunately, unlike credit cards, our room keys can get wiped when they come into close proximity to any magnetic devices like mobile phones etc. Luckily we do have an after hours phone situated on the outside of the building and an on-site Manager for any similar circumstances should any of our residents or guests ever have this problem.
Parking is provided free of charge for all guests of the hotel and we do have 1 car park per apartment. As you have pointed out, there are many residents who reside here and also have car parking provided with their apartment.

Thank you once again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Kind Regards

I almost never left the Mantra apartment, the views were so extraordinary. You get a beautiful sunrise and sunset. I loved watching the surfers at Greenmount as the sun rose. The Mantra is in the perfect location, easy walking to everywhere, and right across the road from the beach. This is my favourite area on the Gold Coast.

The apartment was spacious, modern and comfortable. I recommend taking extra supplies of dishwashing liquid, laundry powder and garbage bags as you don't get many supplies and have to pay.

Our air conditioner wasn't working so well but we just left our door open to grab the ocean breeze to cool us down.

Truly fabulous place

This hotel is relaxing with the beach being a bonus Ina busy conference trip.Food was great and the apartment offered a beautiful view, Would love to come back for holiday. The restaurants and cafe nearby offer choices for dining out of the hotel.Its a pity the weather was a mix bag and a bit cold for a tropical location.Nevertheless, my stay was busy to really be affected.

When researching this hotel, I wanted quiet, sea views, value, location, restaurants and this Hotel certainly delivered. Had a late flight and they were more than accomodating. A plethora of eating places to choose from. All the amenities in the room were perfect for my stay. Nice and close to the airport, $12 fare in a cab. This was my first time here and will be a very good chance it wont be my last...great value for money at this hotel...
