“A great holiday experience”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

My husband and I stayed in a 9th floor apartment of the Mantra Zanzibar for 10 days. The ocean view was fantastic and the apartment was clean and had everything we could want including beach towels. I especially appreciated the extra TV in our bedroom.
The location is amazing being right on the beach in the centre of a great shopping centre with lots of great cafes and restaurants.
I was very impressed with the friendliness of the reception staff - nothing was too much trouble for them. When I asked a girl where I could get our boarding passes printed she offered to do them! I would highly recommend this place.

Great rooms, friendly staff, great location.

This is one of Mooloolaba's classiest hotels save it up for treat or romance.

Generally more expensive than average esplanade hotels but still worth it, if you can book in advance then even much more value for money.

Stayed November 2012, travelled as a couple

Short break getaway to showcase Sunshine Coast to our Japanese visitor. Sensational location on the doorstep of Mooloolaba Beach and fabulous cafés and restaurants. Receptionist Chloe went above and beyond to accommodate our requests. Late checkout was particularly appreciated. Can't wait to return :)

We stayed at Mantra Zanzibar mid week of the school holidays (3 adults/2 children) We came early that day and asked if we could park in the parking whilst we went for a walk. The receptionist on the day was more than accommodating and called me when our room was ready. We were able to check in 2 hours early and we were upgraded from an ocean view 2 bedroom apartment to a Court yard ocean view apartment with BBQ and spa for free. I can't tell you how thrilled we were with our apartment. The staff at Mantra Zanzibar were absolutely wonderful, even the cleaners were polite and very chirpy :) We decided we wanted to stay an extra night. Being the school holidays we were very fortunate to have the last room available that night. I highly recommend mantra Zanzibar to every one. It is a great location, fabulous views, awesome staff and accommodating to all families. We will definitely be back in the near future.

The location is excellent. Superb water views and right in the middle of quality cafes. The noise from the motors on the roof was extremely loud which detracted from the pent house apartment. The maintenance on the unit was lacking with many appliances in poor condition. Beautiful views from pleasant balcony. Well equipped with crockery etc.

Dear Busyannie,

Thank you for posting a review of your recent stay here at Mantra Zanzibar, and it was great to read that you enjoyed the location and views from the penthouse apartment. I'd be interested in hearing from you as to which apartment you stayed in, as all apartments managed by Mantra have had recent refurbishments and I'd appreciate more details on what aspects you felt were "tired".

Please also accept our apolgies for the noise from one of the extraction fans on the rooftop. One of these had a mechanical issue recently which has now been resolved.

I look forward to hearing from you, and I hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you back to Mantra Zanzibar in the future.

Kind Regards,

Couldn't fault our two bedroom unit at the Zanzibar, great location and view. Especially liked that layout of the unit and the large balcony. Would visit again. We were there on a very busy weekend however didn't find this a problem at all. We walked everywhere and booked spa treatments at the beautician in the building.

Booked a 2 bedroom oceanview apartment, was upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment on the 4th floor, Reception very helpful and friendly. Noisy on the friday night from either surrounding apartments or from the street would suggest a higher level if possible otherwise a nice cllean apartment, a bit dated.

Room Tip: Suggest getting a higher level apartment a bit noisy at night
