I had been wanting to stay at this resort for years and we were pleasantly surprised by our room. It had a balcony, lounge area, kitchenette and spa bath. The resort had free parking underneath and some great local restaurants in easy walking distance (thanks to the mantra umbrellas you can borrow). The location is lovely and you can easily... More

A group of girlfriends and myself stayed at the Mantra last weekend for a bachelorette weekend and had a great time! The staff were very helpful and super friendly! Between us we had both one bedroom and two bedroom rooms which were fantastic and had huge balconies. The mini kitchen facilities had everything we needed and the bathrooms were big... More

My husband and I spent $250 on 1 night at the resort. For this price we expected far more than what we got. Our "king bed" was 2 king single beds pushed together with a huge bump in the middle. If you rolled too far over it was honestly painful to hit the gap in the middle. Hardly romantic! There... More

Very convenient location with the Ettalong Beach Diggers immediately below the hotel. The hotel is clean and tidy but doesn't have a restaurant or bar because of the "Diggers" below. This is the second time we have stayed there and will look for their special rates again. For those that like exercise there is a gym and also a good... More

I spent a couple of nights here on a weekend when my plan was to do a couple of fairly long local walks. Sadly, Mother Nature vetoed my walking plans - but I still enjoyed the weekend largely because of my stay at the Mantra. The Reception staff are lovely and helpful and the rooms are clean and well presented.... More

We stayed overnight at the Mantra at Ettalong Beach a lovely very clean hotel apartment style. The apartment was clean and well serviced with everything we needed, just a tip sometimes there is never enough milk for two cups of coffee each in the mornings.

King room is lovely and spa bath & kitchenette also great. However you have to pay for WiFi, no porters, no food/room service or restaurant hence no meals available. Only 2 leaflets in reception for local activities, the other 25 were all for local eateries (for obvious reasons!) Sauna gym facilities and housekeeping also cost extra. No excursions or car... More

Stayed for one night in a 2 bedroom apartment. Over priced and very small room. One small couch, inside a small living area. 2 bedrooms so close to each other they may as well been the same room. Not many other places to stay near by - thus they can charged such ridiculously expensive prices. I have stayed at other... More

Very nice & clean. Attended a 50th birthday in nearby Woy Woy. Room was spacious with very cosy set up in rooms, including a lovely spa bath. Rooms are set up as self contained (if you want) with cooking facilities, as well in-room laundry. Shops across the road, and water across from hotel. Hotel staff made it easy for checking... More

My wife and I stayed for one night and had an enjoyable stay. The apartment was tidy and the king bed was very comfy. We had an ocean view balcony which was great. Staff were helpful and free underground parking a bonus. The Memorial Club is attached and there are other dining options in the shopping precinct. Nice place for... More
