We stayed at Mantra Sun City about 2 weeks ago. As my title suggests we are only 1/2 impressed by this hotel. The positives - The pools, staff & facilities were all fantastic. The kids LOVED the pool areas, they were always clean, although we thought that the spa's need a little maintenance. The staff - always friendly & helpful.... More

It was a great place to stay. Lovely, helpful staff. The kids loved the pool and the water slides. Our room was perfect for what we needed, the only down fall was no drapes to block out the early morning (5am) sunrise.😉 Over all. Well worth staying here. We will be back next year.

We stayed for 3 nights at Mantra Suncity and are very impressed with the resort! Our son loved the pool, the views from the 26th floor room were AMAZING and the apartment well stocked and huge in comparison to other 1 bedroom apartments we have stayed in in the past. The bed and pillows were comfortable and although the furnishings... More

My husband surprised me by taking me here for my birthday and i was blown away by the pool and hotel theme. Absolutely gorgeous! We only had a small room with no balcony (but 1. we got this on a really great cheap deal and 2. who wants to spend lots of time in a room anyway?). The staff were... More

Pros: Large, clean and well equipped two bedroom apartment. Massive living area, large bedrooms, two good bathrooms. Lots of couches and a dining table to seat 8, this is a great set up for a family on holiday on the Gold Coast. Extremely pleasant and professional staff - courteous and available. Lovely affordable cafe/restaurant connected to the Mantra provided several... More

I stayed here one night for a conference in what I guess would be called a hotel room (ie, not an apartment). As per my title here, it's fine enough. The room was not big, but not tiny, the air-con and shower both very powerful, bed comfortable enough and a nice balcony. Nothing fancy, it's not luxury accommodation by any... More

We stayed at the Mantra Sun City for 5 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. We were a bit worried after seeing poor reviews but were pleasantly surprised. We were upgraded to an ocean view room and had a breathtaking view from the 23rd floor. Our rooms were modern and had been refurbished probably in the past 2-3 years. Everything... More

Stayed at the Mantra Sun City recently for a week away in the Gold Coast. The resort was excellent, great staff, facilities and the pool was to die for. The room was huge and very well kept. 10 minute walk to Cavil and a great view of the beach! Overall lovely experience.
