We booked to stayed here for 2 nights originally, but ended up staying for 3 nights. We booked online for the 2 nights at a reasonable price. When we inquired to stay the extra night we were told that we would not get the same price some 60 dollars more and to add injury to insult were told we would... More

We had our Honeymoon 2 nights in the Ocean view terrace apartment. It was just beautiful! Great service, very nice and clean with a beautiful view of boats on the water. There is a large balcony with an outdoor table and chairs as well as a little coffee table with 2 chairs. Inside was incredibly nice and clean with full... More

We have stayed here a several times over the years. It's location is very convent - near shops, club and other amenities. The Mantra is right on the beach. The units are quit basic and a little date e.g. small CRT TV's. Units have always been clean and tidy but are getting just a bit pricy for what you get.

Bed was like sleeping on a concrete floor. Balcony unusable because of people above dropping water over their balcony and onto ours. No free wi-fi in a place that size is poor. Noise of hairdryer next door in the morning was annoying. I had to pay for our stay upfront and then they also wanted $200 bond when i checked... More

Stayed one night at the lovely Mantra. Service was good and friendly. I booked a room which was a special, the only small issue we had was the shower was over the spa bath meaning you have to climb into the shower which was difficult for my friend who has a slight disability with her leg. When I asked the... More

Rooms are a good size and are nicely appointed. Good size bathroom, although the shower is hard to get into because it is over the spa. No room service unless you pay for it. Reception staff friendly and efficient. Club next door or lots of restaurants in town (walking distance). Also ferry to Palm Beach.

Very autocratic check-in process, did everything but take a mug shot! Room excellent but overlooked gym area. Missed out on water view, got the local primary school instead. Well located, but no facilities, need to go to club which is very ordinary. Had to pay for wifi.

Great value for money room. Peaceful. Clean. The big draw card is the spa baths in the rooms. From the bathroom you can sit back and enjoy the spa and gaze out the doors to the mountains or sea views. Either one is stunning. Weekday trips to this gorgeous town are relaxing and relatively quite if you are looking for... More

Probably wouldn't pick pool side of you want lots of silence as kids + pools can = a bit of noise.

Our clean and comfortable room on level six faced west, flooding the balcony with welcome afternoon sun. The location was good, just a little north of Sydney, easily accessible from the Pacific Highway. It was pleasant walking along the beach nearby. However, there were several minor gripes. The key card, essential for using the lift, mainly didn't work, and other... More
