Found the apartment was well appointed was ideal for a family holiday microwave and cooking utensils, the RSL club was right next door if you wanted to eat out, also good cafés with walking distance and the water was a few minutes walk.

The double room we stayed in was clean and reasonably sized with good balconies and very nice views out to the beach and hinterland. All the facilities worked as advertised but parking is a problem during peak as the underground parking was full with folk visiting the adjoining RSL. The room we had was away from the pool so the...

I booked this hotel room the night before arrival as a spontaneous getaway for my birthday, I had never been to Ettalong or its surrounding suburbs before, but it was quite beautiful. We got a pool view room which was not only spacious, but had an amazing view of the palm trees, enormous pool and also Ettalong beach. The pool... More

Family room is very nice. We had a spa bath and the sofa bed was really comfortable. A very well presented hotel. The swimming pool is also lovely and has a mini spa and a large shallow area - so very kid-friendly. Staff were pleasant and property is right near the beach (FYI this is NOT a surf beach as...

What a beautiful place to stay. Right near the water & shops. The club attached makes it a convenient place to stay if you dont want to go too far to have a drink or eat at the different restaurants on offer. The pool and spa are divine as long as it is not over run with children. Fortunately most... More

Stayed here for only one night but wish it was longer. We booked through booking.com taking advantage of a special deal and stayed in a one bed suite. Two teens and I were very happy with the rooms with room for all. Our room faced the suburb but could still see towards Lion Island. The room was clean and tidy... More

Pros: Location, the hotel is right in the quiet town of Ettalong. Lovely town, lots of great cafes to eat at, beautiful walks nearby. The Mantra is centrally located. The room was clean and tidy. Secure building, needed the key card to access lift to apartment levels. Large pool, with scenic views of the bay. Cons: Overpriced. Parking is not... More

We booked for two nights a 2 bedroom apartment which had views over car park and the hinterland. The apartment was fine but the lounge area and kitchen could have been bigger as difficult with 4 persons in the apartment. You could not really cook a meal in it either. However beds and seperate bathroom were good. In terms of... More

Yes it was summer and you expect it to be busy but the 10am checkout made it impossible for the 3 lifts to cater to the many trying to get out. The pool was so full and got knocked in the head by a ball a couple of times so I think something should be done about pool play. At... More

Terrific hotel in wonderful location right next to great club and town. This hotel has everything. This is my second visit as I visit grandchildren in the town and they visit me here. Right across the road to walks by the water and beach. The swimming pool in the hotel is excellent for children and adults. Once again I was... More
