Surroundings were awesome! Lots of restaurants and cafes to choose from. Closeness of the beach excellent! good for a weekend getaway. Not far from sydney, but if u go on a Friday don't leave it too late.... Traffic out would b bad. We left at 1:30 and was busy.

We had a lovely 2 night stay. Our room was very comfortable and had everything we could need. The staff at the Mantra where very friendly and happy to help with anything you might need. Local restaurants are of high quality and we didn't use our car all weekend.

My best friend and I had a wonderful stay at the Mantra. The room was spacious and comfortable. The only thing that spoilt the stay was the incredibly loud music coming from downstairs in ettalong diggers. The music just carried all the way to our room until 12 am!!

We have stayed at the Mantra Ettalong a few times now. It is in a super location - across the road from a kid friendly beach and local shops and restaurants. The staff are lovely and the rooms as you would expect of a Mantra - clean and modern. The pool is a hit - and the water warm.

Lovely big pool. Apartments are adequate and clean but too claustrophobic for longer than a few days. Staff are bit off standindish and Inflexible. Location is good and Ettalong is a lovely village with really friendly people. Unlike the hotel staff.

Stayed at the Mantra for two nights and was very impressed with the rooms. Our room was around the side but still had a great view of the ocean. Nice balcony to sit and watch the sunset. Beds very comfortable and staff were friendly and efficient. Lots to do and see in the area.

I stayed here for a few nights with work and was very happy with the rooms. They are spacious with a galley kitchen and balcony. The bedroom opens up onto the lounge room but can be sectioned off with a roller door. It has a relaxed holiday beach vibe. The pool area is fantastic. A great place to relax with... More

Dear Grace N, Thank you for the outstanding review Grace, it is a pleasure to know that although you were staying on business you were able to enjoy the relaxed holiday beach vibe that our hotel offers. Our one bedroom apartments certainly are more spacious than most hotels allowing for one to four people in the one apartment. We hope... More

Seems like the mantra enjoys raising prices when appropriate. E.g 3 times the usual price when on a public holiday. Do not offer breakfast or meals. Have to walk into the club to grab a meal. Very inconvenient. Fight for parking with patrons of the club. If an extra person is to stay. Extra 40 dollars to unlock a chain... More

Dear Flexsildabigdog, Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us. Please be aware that we are self-contained apartments here and at no stage have ever advertised that we have an onsite restaurant. We do however have a large selection of brochures for local eateries that will deliver to the hotel upon request. We would also like to advise you... More
