Mantra has a fantastic location and views, but the room quality is only average. Beds are soft, small and uncomfortable. Furniture is particularly run down. Elevators take forever during busy periods. The gym is incredibly limited. However, the price is excellent for a beachfront, ducted air conditioned Coolangatta apartment. Recommended.

The Mantra is perfectly located so you can leave your car for your visit and walk to beach, restaurants, clubs and shopping centres. The two bedroom apartment had a balcony with amazing ocean views right through to Surfers Paradise. The balcony could be directly accessed from the lounge area and both bedrooms. With an ensuite and a separate bathroom, each... More

We have stayed at the Mantra Coolangatta many times over the last 5 years, we love the location, so close to restaurants, cafes and the airport. The views from the balcony are simply to die for! Staff at reception are friendly and welcoming and the grounds - pool, BBQ area etc are well maintained. The apartments though are looking pretty... More

Stayed at this resort for 1 night in November as Rick Astley was in town (side note - the man still knows how to entertain a crowd) due to its location. Booked a 2 bedroom unit. See photo of how close the bed was to the wardrobe. On arriving at the unit noticed the overhead air con unit was leaking.... More

Stayed in a 1-bedroom ocean view apartment for 2 nights. The view was great & the ability to have the window open in the bedroom made for a good nights sleep with the ocean air. The apartment in some ways felt a little tired but in other ways felt very modern. First morning there was no hot water so a... More

We got a lovely room with a great view, very clean and the furnishings was beachy and fun. Good size and nice bathroom. We didn't have time to use the facilities unfortunately but would want to stay here again if in town. We wanted late checkout but they were booked out so allowed us to stay for an extra half...

Although our room was looking a little dated in the bathroom, the apartment was clean, the kitchen was very usable and the room overall quite spacious for a one bedroom. The hotel facilities, pool, spa, sauna and gym were well maintained and clean. The most amazing part of the Mantra is the mesmerizing view of Coolangatta beach. Ask for a... More

I paid for the studio room and it was tiny and poky and they are also all on the 1st and 2nd floor. For a hotel with such amazing views, these rooms are the 'pits'. I approached reception to change rooms and was confronted with a women who did not want to help ... She said she couldn't change the... More

This was our 5th family holiday staying at Mantra Coolangatta, so we are clearly quite happy with the place!! It's just such an easy holiday with a family, as it's only 5 minutes from the airport, the hotel is right across from the beach, plenty of restaurants and supermarkets near by and the rooms contain everything you need. We have... More
