“Great family escape”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

As a family of 2 adults and and 2 active boys (ages 5 and 8), staying in a 2 bedroom apartment at this resort worked really well. The pool area was lovely (and well used), and the apartment was spacious and clean. The only problem was a smell which seemed to come form the drain in the second bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful. Best of all, this resort is located very close to Main Beach at Noosa, and the shops in Hastings Street. For convenience and value for money, this was resort was great!

Room Tip: Rooms on the Western side were great - no early morning sun, and no street noise!

Apart from being kicked out of the pool at 8.30pm because the hotel has a pool curfew at 9pm and despite the fact that they didn't have a rule about kids screaming and running around the pool at 7am and putting strobe lights in the spa areas -stay away if you or your children are epileptic!!! The location was good at the end of hasting street and minutes away from the parks and beaches. Room was clean although we didn't use the bathroom spa as it was not clean and was missing tags to say it was.

Room Tip: Take your own toiletries as they are not supplied after first day.

This hotel was nice close to everything in the main street of Noosa. We wish we had stayed for longer such a beautiful area of the Sunshine Coast so much more than we expected. some staff where very nice but a couple not so friendly and wanted to charge us for the fold up bed our 16 year old had to sleep on even though we had paid for three adults, we left it until we checked out and no more was said so I don't think she knew what she was doing. Not a nice way to start our holiday, but it worked out in the end.

I booked the Mantra through Accom Noosa.When I picked the keys up ,I was told no parties ,no pets and no cigarettes ,no mention of enjoy your stay.I really needed a quiet break.Upon arriving at a unit that had clearly been decorated by the owner with endless pics of First Point and and a surf board attached to the wall.The unit was clean ,but clearly the cleaners duties stopped at the balcony doors,dirty table,stained chairs and two very tired and thirsty pot plants.The first morning,work started 10 metres away on a building site,so the endless sound of nail guns,drills and electric saws hardly added to the quiet break I was looking for.Having discussed this issue with Accom Noosa they appeared to be ignorant of that fact.I might add they would be the only business on Hastings street who were not aware of the situation and given that they are an accommodation specialist .Go figure. They failed to reply to a subsequent email.Its a smoke free venue,however i was told I could on the balcony.Not an ashtray in sight and I rarely travel with one .
.Subsequently I spoke to Mantra management and was informed that Accom Noosa managed my unit for the owner,had Mantra been managing the property,they said I would have been moved from the building site room or offered some sort of compensation.Clearly this problem lies with the management of Accom Noosa,who have to date still not responded to my email .Their attitude and lack of service was disgraceful

Hello and thanks for your review of Mantra French Quarter. Yes, you are correct, we do have a few individually owned units at the resort that are not managed by Mantra. Unfortunately we have no control over how those units are managed or maintained. We are sorry that your stay was not what you were hoping for. Hopefully we can welcome you to a Mantra resort in the future.

Kind regards

I initially booked a standard two bedroom apartment ,after arriving and seeing the room was shocked at the shabby state of the apartment,was horrible and my mother who i was travelling with agreed we could not stay there ,we straight away upgraded to a deluxe room which was simply beautiful , could not believe the difference and for a little extra was well worth the money. was so nice we extended our stay for 3 extra nights making 11 nights ,in a fabulous quiet location to close to everything.great staff to very helpful.

Room Tip: Book a refurbished room much better value.

We (husband/wife) spent 2 nights at French Quarter recently and wish it could have been longer. Lovely, roomy, 1st-floor unit with well-equipped kitchen and beautiful view through palms over big, pretty pool. Staff were immensely friendly and helpful on our first night, which was VERY busy (31 August -- Jazz Festival on). We were able to have morning, afternoon and evening walks on the beach and boardwalk, and ate at two excellent restaurants (Cafe le Monde and Season) within a stone's throw of the resort. Taking in the delightful shops along Hastings St without having to worry about parking was a bonus. (Lamington's and Newton's Apple and their staff are treasures, along with the date and cinnamon scones at a bakery near the latter.) Our unit at French Quarter was in good nick and paying a little extra for restful and convenient accommodation is worth it in our book.

Room Tip: We liked 2nd floor (East quarter) -- good view of pool and feasible to use steps instead of lift.
