“RELAXATION PLUS +++”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

You must stay here ~ If you love ... relaxing by the pool ~ sleeping in ~ sunny balconies ~ sea views ~ awesome swimming pool ~ hot tub with spa jets in just the right places ~ gym & tennis court ~ beach walks +++++ Our 2 b/room apartment was clean, spacious and well fitted out with utilities for our 6 night stay. Local restaurants served great food, local shopping fitted the relaxed beachy atmosphere and the 10 minute drive to Bundaberg gave us more food and shopping suprises. It was great service having wine & beers available at the reception and our hosts were pleasant, friendly and helpful. Would definately recommend this resort if you seek a 'quality' resort for a relaxing, peaceful holiday.

Room Tip: Every room gets a sea view !!! Level 3, 2/broom on the corner gets all day sun.

We stayed at the Manta for a 4 night family getaway. The resort in modern, clean and very spacious. It has a decent gym a tennis court, spa, toddlers pool and an adults pool. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment overlooking the ocean and we were very happy with our stay. There were no hidden surprises or disappointments. This is a self-contained resort with no restaurants or room service etc. Our apartment had a full kitchen, dish washer, microwave, ocean, washing machine, clothes dry it also had a spa bath and two flat screen TVs. There was also secure undercover car parking.

Room Tip: All rooms are good I understand, perhaps just ask for an Ocean View.

having visited Bundaberg before and finding no hotels in Bundy that offer a bit more above a very average Best Western i picked the Manta at Bargara as its only a 20min drive away and super happy that i did! its an easy drive from Bundaberg and lots of restaurants with beach side picnic areas across the road

we arrived a little before 3pm and the reception manager was helpful and friendly. i got the impression he would love to chat and help plan your stay if thats what you want but hes also good enough at his job to realize when some people dont want to chat and want to just relaxed and that person this weekend so the conversation didnt feel forced

we had room 305, a two room, two bathroom apartment that really was a small home away from home that overlooked the beach and had wonderful beach breezes when you opened the doors

the complex also offers a wonderful pool, spa and gym and underground secure parking is also available for guests

Manta pro:
Location - 20mins from Bundy
Nearby cafes and shops. Book early if you want to eat at Kasys but there are a few other cafes nearby. Bradlees offer great hamburgers and with the beach right across the road sit down and relax.
Room 305 is comfy with balcony and ocean views. Fully equiped kitchen (which i didnt use), big flat screen and a small washing machine (which i did use) and dryer was handy. Finding a jug of ice cold water in the fridge was a nice bonus.
Didnt hear any of the neighbours noise and i know next door had kids so thats a huge bonus.
Underground parking


Cons:
Room didnt have a king size bed, there are other rooms with king beds apparently
I could never get the main balcony window to lock

as you can see by my "cons" there isnt much wrong with the Manta


will definately stay here again - well worth it

We stayed at Manta back in 2007, and on a return trip still thought this was the best option. Four years later this is a well maintained resort, in a great location.
The apartments are lovely, we stayed in a 2 bedroom apt on 4th floor, with large ensuited (spa bath) main bedroom at the front, and a smaller twin room at the rear. Good size living space and a lovely verandah to watch the people walking, and the ocean.
It is well equipped for cooking, with enough crockery and cooking utensils, along with dishwasher and laundry.
There is a tennis court and large pool, which gets sun most of the day unlike a number of the other resorts. There are some umbrellas around the pool.
The gym is basic but enough to get a workout or you can walk/run the extensive coastal path.
It is a short walk to local restaurants, definitely recommend Kacy's.

Room Tip: At the front and high floor

Recently visited Bargara for 3 nights - had a gorgeous apartment - number 403 - could sleep up to 6 people (2 bedrooms and a futon bed in retreat room with 2nd television). Great big verandah to sit on and enjoy people watching and the sea (through the trees) across the road. Fully self catering apartment with lovely modern furnishings, leather lounges - very comfy bed -and the staff were extremely helpful. There is a secure under building carpark as well. The pool area has a bbq, spa for adults and small swimming pool (more like a lap pool) and many loungers to relax on. The complex is 5 years old and is very nicely maintained. There were 2 bathrooms/toilets and a laundry room - very spacious - for two people it was heaven - so much space! Its a quiet place but has a really nice relaxing feel to it. People walk and cycle on the beachfront walk and you see lots of dog walkers as well. If you want to wind down and just stop for a while, this is the place. Restaurants are within walking distance as well as a great snack bar so you can have some drinks with dinner and walk home. There is also a golf club but you need to drive there as it is a bit far to walk back if you are tired. Favourite restaurant for a special treat was Kacys - absolutely lovely and the service and food were outstanding.

Room Tip: Room 403 has a great view from the verandah.

This is a fantastic Resort. The hosts, Ben & Maegan make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive, and it does not stop until checkout. Their hospitality is first class.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom penthouse and it was great. The apartment was very clean, and unlike most other venues, the room was what you saw in the photos. You can take beautiful photos of sunrise from your large balcony.

It's a great location, only a short stroll to the "main street" of Bagara.

I will certainly be recommending Manta to my friends and work colleagues. And if I am ever back that way, will be sure to stay again.

Room Tip: Liaise with Ben and Maegan directly as opposed to booking from accommodation services online
