“Amazing !!!”
Reviewed 21 November 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights of our honeymoon. Absolutely amazing. We were in a spa room and it was gorgeous. The pool was awesome n we swam multiple times a day. Right across from the beach. Booked through a booking agent and was a very cheap deal. We will be back and highly recommend it

Our first time at Palm Cove - an absolutely fantastic place! Beautiful views, restaurants close by, beach across the road, the pool was gorgeous - the location was just perfect - paradise. And our accommodation at the Mantra was much the same. The ocean views and outlook was to die for, the apartment was basic but comfortable and they had the air con turned on for our arrival which I thought is a great touch. There were a few negatives, Mantra management please think about the little things, enough tea bags (and sugars) to last the whole week - six tea bags for two people for a week is a little tight, and the two meager squares of soap that had to last the whole week too. And a change of linen and towels during our week stay would have gone down well. It was annoying that we needed to buy extra amenities during our stay here. On a positive note there are some really great restaurants very close at hand - you have to try Bella Baci - their food and service is the best!

Room Tip: Make sure you choose an ocean view room.

Dear JanBaby1954,

Thank you for your review. I'm very glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay with us.

Our self-contained apartments come with amenities to get you started for the first few days. After this, you are more than welcome to see reception for any amenities at no extra cost rather than buying your own. The same can be said for linen and towels. For stays of 8 nights or more - a complimentary service is included half way through the stay. If a stay is any less than that, a service is not included but may be organised through reception for a reasonable price.

Thank you again for your great review and we hope to see you again soon.

Kindest Regards,

General Manager

We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor. We placed a requested prior to our arrival to be on the ground floor as I had heard there were lots of stairs to the 2nd and 3rd level apartments. I am glad we got out ground level. However if you get one on 2nd or 3rd I am sure they will still be great just a bigger trip to get your luggage up and down.

I will cover off my small negatives first. The apartment had a few minor maintenance issues that would be soooo easy to fix. I would be annoyed if I was an owner paying a maintenance fee each year. Kick board under dishwasher sticking out, TV aerial plug board hanging out of wall, cob webs behind TV, fridge seal broken (had to use a weight to keep fridge door closed).
I was also told there was no day spa there but as we left we saw a sign to the amphora spa......
We went to peppers for one and it was amazing. Highly recommend.

But aside from those minor maintenance issues this resort has an amazing beachfront location, the best pool for all ages, an amazing spa and Awsome proximity to restaurants and beach.
I can't fault anything else. I highly recommend this resort and we are already looking at booking our next holiday there next November!

Oh and make sure you go to VIVO, the restaurant at the front of the resort. We tried many places and VIVO is a 10/10!!! An awesome cocktails during happy hour!
Can't wait to go back!!! We love you palm cove and amphora!

The room was lovely and our 'partial' ocean views were so much better than that would suggest - you could see a lot of blue from the balcony!

There is no separate loo, so make sure you're quite close with whomever you're sharing with.

Good service, beautiful facilities (especially the pool!), everything was clean and neat. Would happily stay again and again.

Very impressed with the customer service for this apartment. We stayed at the Mantra as our first family holiday with our 4 month old baby. With my many emails I sent, Jacqueline was very prompt in responding, and it was great to arrive to the apartment to find it clean, with the aircon already on to cool the room for us, and the portacot already set up. The provision of a car was an extra unexpected bonus.

The location of the hotel was close enough to the main street to be able to wonder down and grab a bite to eat without to much hassle, but far enough not to feel like you are seeing everyone walk past your room.

The pool was large and clean, and the balcony was in a great shaded spot, large enough to stretch out, with a glass of wine and read a book.

If we head to Palm Cove again (which is highly likely as we have fallen in love with this town!) we will definitely be looking up Jacqueline details.

We had a three bedroom suite during our stay in Palm Cove. Check in was quick, then had to wander around a bit looking for the rooms as they aren't so easy to find. Some of the people in our group had trouble bringing their luggage up the stairs (we were on the 3rd floor), there's no elevator, so consider that when booking. That aside, the suite was quite nice, the beds comfortable, the bathrooms clean (just not enough vanity space for the toiletries, and not enough towel racks for hanging the towels). We did have ants in the kitchen, this is apparently not so unusual though, we got some spray from management and dealt with it. We had a nice view from the balcony of the ocean across the street. We were on the side of the building that is right next to the restaurant (Vivo) and at night it was loud so if that sort of thing bothers you make sure you are situated somewhere else. The suite also had a washer/dryer which really came in handy.

Room Tip: You may not want a room on any of the upper floors as there is no elevator and you'll have to ca...

We stayed one night and were happy with our top floor, ocean view hotel room. The furnishings were up to date and comfortable. We were told that the wifi wasn't working well, so we shouldn't try it. The carpeting was dirty and we had to wash our feet after walking on it. The huge pool was lovely. The rate of $176 on a Friday night seemed a good value.
