This year we did not enjoy as much as last year plus the room was over $50 dollars dearer than last year and we did not get a king size bed which I requested when booking. We were too close to the pool and somebody was smoking outside our room continuely

Enjoyed our stay in a 1 bedroom, pool view room. Very spacious room with good facilities. Good bed and the bedroom was pitch black at night which was wonderful. Room was quiet, very clean and comfortable to stay for 4 nights. Staff was friendly and helpful.

A positive about the hotel is the location. It's situated on the beach close to the jetty, local shops and cafes (note - most are only opened from Wednesday to Sunday). The pool and jacuzzi seemed fine too. Other than that it was all very basic. There was nothing spectacular about Mantra and what I expect hotels to be like...

The room was nice and clean. The kitchen was ok. No oven, just 2 hot plates. Don't forget to bring staples like salt, pepper and oil if you're planning to cook as they are not provided. Ours was not a spa room but it did have a small spa that you can just fit 2 people in. The beach is...

We expected better accommodation for the money, considering the prime location. Our stay was enhanced by lovely walks around the area and good cafes, and lots of places to visit, but felt let down by our accommodation.

The only problem I had was there was blood stains on the curtain which I didn't see until we were leaving. The room was overall clean and the beds very comfortable. The pool was excellent. The staff friendly.

Stayed here on a Monday night with my husband and 8month old child. We wanted to check in early to heat her meal for lunch. Thus arrived at 11:55. We were immediately told that no rooms were ready, she did not even ask for our names at this point. Just nothing was ready. Cleary you are unable to check in...
