The facilities, room and staff were great not to mention the perfect location aswell. Although it was cool we couldnt help but to make the most of the pools/ spas they were too nice to just look at 😊 will be back for sure. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Overall stay was good unless you get charge for something you don't do. I would never start there again. Dirty pools, dirty corridors, staff is arrogant except the security guy. Useless waste of money

Right from check in we were disappointed with Mantra. They used to have such high standards but as soon as we went to check in and the reception staff served us with not much customer service we thought oh dear. Thought maybe it was just a bad day but when we checked out it was the same disinterested service. Renovations...

This is not a 4 star hotel, myself and my friends had a terrible experience The service was no better, staff refused to listen to our concerns. While it was a schoolies experience, we were a group of quiet, clean girls...
