3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and found it adequate for a short break. We stayed in a 1 bedroom seaview room. Although it was small, it had a large balcony with view over the pool and water. Kitchenette was well equipped. We only used this for breakfast so was fine. On the weekend there were lots... More

My wife and I stayed on the 20th and 21st of March 2015. The check in was quick and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We asked for extra towels on the 2nd day and a towel for the pool and it was no trouble. Ettalong is not exactly the hub of the Central Coast so do a short... More

Room 410 is a joke as the "bedroom" would not hold a single bed with any sort of access to move about. We had 2 single beds in it which made it impossible to get to the bathroom/toilet. Let alone get dressed in there. Being the time of the year it was not the time for doonas & blankets (mid... More

We love our short stays and as Sydney-siders, the Mantra ticks all our boxes. 4 day getaway was still warm enough to swim and local food is just our thing. I have a few reviews of Manta Ettalong now and it gets better with every visit. Really enjoyed the 7th floor Hinterland view, the room was immaculate and we're always... More

Stayed here for one night on the 16th March the only bad thing was I couldn't stay longer! The views are spectacular as is the features of the resort. The staff couldn't do enough and would return in a heartbeat ☺

Stayed here for business. It's the sort of apartment that you're grandparents bought in 1996 as an investment with the plan to retire there later in life. It's pretty practical. Good value for money. The bed wasn't that comfortable, but alright for a night not for life. Unless you're married to a chiropractor or a masseuse. Well appointed rooms and... More

Had a really relaxed one night stay here. The room was spacious and had a beautiful view from the balcony of the sea. Very comfortable bed and good facilities. There isn't really anywhere else to stay in the area but I would still choose to stay here again.

I will start with the positives.... great location, facilities and room style. Bad - checked in, no info on the hotel at all, was just handed a key, I had to ask about breakfast options, facilities, opening times and parking. I was booked into a pool access room, no towels offered on check in, I had to call down and... More

Beautiful place, King bed, spa, beautiful view of the ocean and hill around, 2 minute walk to beach, shops around the corner, club at your feet (literally at your feet, ground level of the resort) 5 minute walk to the jetty for a quick trip to palm beach, better than the hour drive in traffic.
