Cannot begin to explain how great my stay was. My partner surprised me with a trip away and it couldn't have been better. Staff were amazing on check in and so helpful during our stay - especially when our pre-booked shuttle through our travel agent didn't show. Had a taxi there in 5 minutes which still left us time to get our flight. Thanks girls! The room we stayed in looked over the ocean and had everything we needed. Originally booked a hotel room and we decided to upgrade. Worked out much better because there is no on-site laundry. Worth the upgrade with the extra space! Not a full view of the ocean but suited us just fine. Worked out better because the other full views are close to the restaurant and seemed to get the noise from there. Pool is amazing. Lots of families around the pool but the pool is big enough to not be surrounded by children the entire time. Perfect stay and will be returning over New Years!

Room Tip: There are no stairs at the resort. Didn't bother us at all. Kept us fit!

We returned recently from our Australia trip and our highlight was Pam Cove.
Stayed at Mantra Amphora which we booked by walking into reception. We got a great deal and the staff were fantastic. The room was nicley situated around the large pool and came with a kitchen and a spa bath. It was clean and comfortable. The restaurants around offered great food.
We used our hire car to get around the area. Loved Mossman Gorge and the daintree rainforest. If we get the chance we will be back to ths part of Queensland.

The room was clean, and well set out. I liked the balcony, and the bed was good. The spa was way too small, not sure such a small spa was even installed. I also found the map confusing trying to find the room. Overall though a good stay, note that if you are a couple with different names mantra won't let the non booker check in unless they can call the other person. Make sure you note both names when booking.

Room Tip: Don't bother with the spa rooms, especially if you want get two people in there!

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment for a week. The apartment was huge, maybe a bit of overkill for a couple. The kitchentte with stove, microwave, diswasher etc was very handy, as was the laundry. Didn't have ocean views (unless yoiu looked very close), but had a good view out over the pool area, which is fantastic. Nice and sheltered from onshore winds, shallow areas for the kids and deeper spots for everyone else. Warm spa pool was a bonus in the rain.
Service at check in was courteous and efficiant, and had plenty of help when trying to find a doctors.
Only gripe, and not a major, was some of the cleanliness. Dirt and dust behind the door in the bathroom, tables needing wiping, cobwebs on the balcony. Nothing drastic. Some of the furnishings could do with an upgrade too, although this apartment was up for sale.
Resort may be more suitable for families, the kids will love the pool, but still a good stay.
No fitness centre.

Just checked in & when booking paid for an upgraded "Ocean View Room". Only problem is that our room faces directly into several other apartments, not the ocean. Really quite unhappy.
There's minimal privacy & the curtains are so sheer, that you can see straight through from outside.
Oh yeah, just love the crying child in our neighbours room & the heavy walkers in the room above.

Otherwise a perfectly serviceable 3 star property.

My advice? Look at The Reef House or other 'premium' properties.

Dear dan1255,

Thank you for your review and feedback on our resort.

Unfortunately, due to the way our property is built and situated - not all of our ocean view rooms have direct facing ocean views. We always welcome special requests from guests prior to arrival, and certainly do what we can to satisfy these - subject to availability.

I understand that our staff attempted in finding a new, more suitable apartment for you, but due to our high occupancy we were not able to find a more accommodating apartment. I do apologise that we were unable to find a suitable option at that time.

We are currently in the midst of upgrading the curtains in our apartments, and hope this can be completed soon.

I hope that you will give our resort another chance in the near future and I trust that your experience will be a great one.

Thank you again for your feedback.

Yours Sincerely,

General Manager

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment, the room was beautiful and the location was perfect for our family reunion. The staff were very helpful and although the weather wasn't great we had a fantastic time.

Room Tip: Three bedroom appt facing the water is perfect
