Our daughter's found their way around very easily and the okder folj in our group felt safe, easy access to everything and I felt it was the perfect location for shopping, dining, adventures and entertainment.

We stayed over the weekend in a one bedroom apartment. What a great experience! The balcony was huge and a great space for a small family. It is a central location and an easy walk to wherever you need to go, staff were also helpful and welcoming. Thanks for a great stay! i will definitely be back!

Took me 2 weeks to decide on a hotel in this city. Not a lot of inventory with ocean view & balcony. For the $150 I paid on Orbitz it was the right choice for sure -- why? Simply, location is primo! Located 3 min walk to Ferry to take u to Green Island, etc. Across street from lagoon, and... More

We stayed at Mantra Esplanade for 5 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment. You couldn't get a better location - short walk to Reef Fleet Terminal and the casino, across the road from the lagoon pool and in amongst the shops and restaurants along the esplanade. Our apartment was reasonably priced and clean and comfortable. We were on the 5th... More

We stayed in the Mantra Esplanade in a one bedroom apartment for 3 nights in August, 2014. Desk staff was friendly and helpful when we needed assistance. Our 5th floor room included a kitchen, and the bedroom was separated from the living area with sliding doors. A sofa-bed in the living area provided an additional sleeping location. Also, the room...

The Mantra is located opposite the lagoon, right in the middle of town. It is walking distance to many eating and drinking joints. The free parking is handy, although there are limited spaces available. The rooms only get serviced once a week. Due to the close proximity of many attractions it can be quite loud at night. The wifi is... More
