“Its a Bright place”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

I have stayed in mantra before and they all have modern furnishing that all look great. But are not user friendly. The wooden slats on the windows let light in so sleeping is hard to do when lights are left on in hall ways all night. I had to take a blanket out of the cupboard and cover the window so as not to let light shine in.The Lounges and chairs that look great but not comfortable to sit on. Get over these things and the resort has many good things, Heated pool and spar which was very good, friendly staff and undercover secure car parking. Just ourside the hotel are many restaurants and bars and just across the road from the great beach at Mooloolaba..

Dear peter m

Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us here at Mantra Mooloolaba Beach, it's unfortunate to read there were some aspects of your stay that did not meet your expectations.
I'm sorry to read of the necessity to put a blanket on the window during the night for sleep, this must have been inconvenient for you and we will certainly look into this for future guests.
I am delighted you were still able to enjoy your stay with us and take advantage of our facilities and location.

We look forward to having the opportunity of welcoming you back to Mantra Mooloolaba Beach in the future.

Kind regards

This hotel is right on Mooloolaba Beach. Close to shops and pubs etc. Its is also a short bus ride or drive to Maroochydore in particular Sunshine Plaza shopping centre, which also has a cinema. We stayed here for 3 nights. Great getaway, room included an ocean view which was great in the afternoons and for watching the afternoon storms roll in. Hotel has a 24hr desk, sauna and an indoor and outdoor pool. This is a recommended stay. If going as a couple for a romantic getaway, try and stay mid week, non peak season and avoid school holiday periods. This place is overrun by kids during these times. Enjoy the beach !!

Room Tip: To make your stay worth while, make sure you get an ocean view room..

I think this is the best value accommodation in Mooloolaba. Its our second visit and we loved it. The room was clean, the resort was kid friendly and the staff (we met then all from maintenance to front office) were the friendliest we have come across anywhere and extremely helpful. The views were exceptional, we wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: all rooms are great

Just returned from a fantastic 7 night stay at Mantra Mooloolaba Beach. Our room was really comfortable, clean, had great views and the staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. The close proximity to the shops, restaurants and all that Mooloolaba had to offer was all you could ask for. Will definitely be back!

Room Tip: The staff were happy for us to check a couple of rooms before we decided which one suited us better...

We have stayed at this hotel several times when enjoying short breaks in Mooloolaba. This time we booked a 2 bed,2 bath apartment as my daughter had flown up from Melbourne in search of some Queensland sun! All rooms seem to have sea views and this was no exception being on the 14th floor with amazing, uninterrupted views of the ocean. The apartment was spacious and clean with well equipped kitchen facilities for our 5 day stay. There is free underground parking available and the hotel even has a private path linking it to the adjacent supermarket and shops. The first floor level consists of extensive grounds with sunbaking areas and pool, facing out towards the ocean, there is also an indoor heated pool along with several other guest facilities.
Mooloolaba has grown into a smart, lively, non pretentious resort over recent years and Mantra Beachside provides a perfect base in which to explore it's many facets.

Room Tip: Higher rooms equal more amazing ocean views and possibly less noise from hotel A/C units

The MANTRA Mooloolaba Beach reflects an excellent value proposition for what is an older, well located hotel with a good number of rooms. Our booking enquiry was well handled, our receptionist informative and efficient, parking easy and secure and the room, while old, had crisp clean linen and had been well serviced i.e. very clean. The kitchenette is well equipped and the sea views from the 10th floor excellent. At around $200 for a nights stay we were very pleased with the product, service and the pricing. We also run an accommodation business in Queensland and many reviewers forget to put properties into the correct perspective by comparing against the local price brackets for similar products. Too many guests still only want to spend $100 but expect a $250 product and service package then moan when they don't get it.
Thank you Mantra!
Peter & Janice

Room Tip: Higher level floors do not get the street noise usually associated with sea front properties.
