Look no further in Ettalong Beach than the beautiful and iconic Mantra Resort. I stayed here in February prior to a new job, after attending a Conference in November of 2013. I had enjoyed Ettalong Beach over that weekend. So I wanted to journey back, and decided to visit the Mantra Resort. I was not disappointed, the hotel itself was... More

Loved that the club was attached and the day spa was also in the building Didn't need to drive anywhere. The apartment was a great size with a lovely view of the pool and water. Would definitely be back.

A very clean and tidy and well designed 1 bedroom apartment. There was enough space for 2 Ad and 2 Ch for a quick 1 night stay. A great off season rate. Very friendly and helpful Reception staff. Ettalong is at one end of Central Coast so much driving is needed if u choose to get around. Free parking though!

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary in May and upon first arriving, we were put into a sea view room on the third floor. This room had no view and was so close to the spa area, we could hear people's conversations as though they were in the room with us. However, upon requesting a room change... More

The 1 bedroom deluxe suite with ocean view was fantastic: clean, modern, and spacious. Donna on the desk at reception was very friendly. Great location to boot! My only point for improvement would be to provide more information in the room about local eating options since the hotel has no restaurant; at night the town is quiet and we didn't... More
