Mantarays Ningaloo Beach Resort
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Exmouth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

Pool and restaurant wonderful. Room lighting a bit dim. Bed big, shower good, hotel right on the beachand staff are excellent. Exmouth 30 kms from airport, so be aware! Sit outside at sunset and watch the sun over the ocean. Don't miss a snorkel with whale sharks or a yardie creek boat ride. Charles knife canyon and turquoise Bay are lovely, great food at pinocchios Italian restaurant. Watch the sunset at lighthouse!

Stayed here for 4 nights and loved it. Staff all very helpful and the rooms are really well appointed. The location on the beach is just lovely watching the sunrise over the ocean was a treat. The whole hotel is really clean and has a lovely relaxing vibe.

Marina next door was very handy walked there to meet our sunset catamaran cruise and also the deep sea fishing charter we went on.

We stayed there for only a night on our way from Broome to Coral Bay to celebrate my birthday. The room we got allocated to was upstairs and very nice - loved it. But my friend asked if we can have a late checkout, so they moved us in a room downstairs with disabled access which was more dated and without the nice view we had before. It was still okay but I that downgrade really disappointed me.
The restaurant was nice - cocktails great.
Service good.
We missed the breakfast room service time by 20 minutes - I called the room service and asked if it would be possible to still get breakfast and they went out of their way to give us breakfast - very positive experience. And after I got over my disappointment with the room downgrade it was all in all a pleasant stay.

We stayed in Novotel Ningaloo resort for 4 nights.
This is certainly the best place to stay in Exmouth. Our room was spacious and comfortable and had all amenities needed.
The decor is modern and beautiful.
We had a beautiful view over the marina, and you have a lovely balcony to enjoy.
However, we were surprised that our king bed was in fact 2 single beds aside.

Wi-Fi is available in lobby but not in your room.

The restaurant and bar are very nice and service is excellent. (150-200$ dinner)

We had a hard time with room service; The day of our departure, we ordered breakfast at 7h00 am. It arrived in our room at 8h45, and we rushed to eat, as we were leaving at 9h00! We also had a not so nice experience with one of the receptionnist. When checking-in, the lady told us that we had to change room on the last night, because we had bookings in standard rooms for 3 nights, then superior room for last night, as there was no place in standard rooms the last night. So, on the last day, after rushing to bring all our suitcases and bags down to the reception, they told us we had to stay in the same room, and that the first lady was new and did a mistake on our rooms.....-_-


We had the chance to be in Exmouth during the "Whale-sharks festival" (May 2014) It was very fun. There was a party in Yacht club to celebrate this festival, and we went there by walk.

If you want to stay in the hotel, you don't need a car, but if you want to visit Exmouth and their national park, you must rent a car. Car rentals are close enough to the hotel. (We booked with Budget and were very happy about it).


Personnally, I come from Canada, and for this price, you get much more than this for similar accomodations. We learned that Australia is probably the most expansive country we visited so far.

Briefly, if you go in Exmouth and have the money to spend 350-450 $/ night, go to Ningaloo Novotel. Its a nice hotel, great view, great location.

We just stayed 3 nights in the Ningaloo Novotel, the premises are beautiful and the room quite large. The staff is most pleasant and eager to care for the customers. We had breakfast and dinner and the food is excellent although expensive. The only complain we would have is the poor quality of the bedding. Just beware of the sand flies….
