We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with ocean view with our toddler and loved our stay. The hotel facilities, including lobby, pool and gardens were quite impressive and made for a decent playground for our toddler. Our unit was spacious, comfortable and had great ocean views. Some of the furniture was very tired and outdated, but the essentials, mattress,... More

After competing in the Kokoda Challenge, we were looking forward to a good sleep. We got to the room and the view from level 32 was amazing. We stayed in a 3 bedroom ocean view room with a spa. It was easy to organise a late check out with late notice, however, the next day we were timed out when... More

Recently my family rented room 204 for nine nights for a total of AU $2700. It is not unfair to say that we would NOT be recommending this room to any perspective hirers. For a start the state of cleanliness left a lot to be desired. Most surfaces were dusty and dirty, a soiled sheet remained on the pull out... More

Had a week long holiday here and it was a good winter holiday, the outdoor pool was far too cold to use and so it would have been better if the indoor pool was turned up a couple of degrees, as it was no one stayed in for very long and some like me didn’t even get in a bit... More

We stayed here for a week after driving up from sydney. Firstly rooms were large enough for the two of us and having a kitchen and laundry in the room was great for a stay of a week. The balcony meant we could let in some fresh air if it got a little stuffy. The bed was comfy (even if... More

The Mantra Sun City is great value so we keep coming back. If you book in advance and hit upon a special, you can get a 1 bedroom apartment for the same price as a hotel elsewhere. I stayed for 3 days in February and found the location great. It's a few blocks back from the centre of Surfers but... More

We chose this location as the kids had seen the pool with slides on a previous trip. We usually love a serviced apartment. The good parts - the outdoor areas and the ground floor common areas are all good (a recent renovation and refurb). They are all well maintained. The kids were initially excited by the slides which are quite... More

The suite we eventually ended up in was very spacious and quite comfortable for our needs (six adults--all family). But the first suite (on Level 32) was not good at all. Outstanding view, but very rundown with very bad drain smell. Sam on reception responded very quickly and offered two other options. We eventually ended up on Level 21, Room... More
