Location, location, location. After reading a number of negative posts (let's be honest we all check them out first) I was pleasantly surprised. Our 2 bedroom apartment was tidy & we'll set out. Bathroom (there were 2) facilities were clean & comfortable. Kitchen set up good. In room laundry facilities are easy to use. - no complaints from me. Yes... More

Spent a week in Palm Cove August 2015 and enjoyed all attractions that Tropical North Qld has to offer. Mantra is right on the beach at Palmm Cove with restaurants at it's door. Will come back again in the future!

Dear 812CPL, Thank you for taking the time to review Mantra Amphora. We are happy that that you had a great time during your stay and that you truly enjoyed Palm Cove.

To say the 2 best things about this establishment is the location and the underground car parking doesn't say a lot for the rest of the place. OK it is clean, run professionally, does have a great pool area. But it has no soul. The staff are adequate. They tell you what you can do what you can't do. They... More

Recently stayed for 7 nights in a hotel room which was clean and tidy and perfectly adequate for a couple. The rooms aren't serviced though unless you stay longer than 8 days. There is no room service as there is no onsite restaurant. Otherwise is a great apartment block and the lagoon pool is huge!

Dear Tristan K, We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Mantra Amphora. Although we do not have our own restaurant, we are located in the heart of Palm Cove, a short walk from an array of cafes and restaurants located along Williams Esplanade, most of which will do take away meals. You are correct, we do not service our... More

We spent 5 nights at the Mantra Amphora with our son and it is the perfect place for a holiday with kids. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment as we wanted a kitchen. The apartment was huge. A good sized bedroom, massive living space, big bathroom with full bath and separate toilet. The kitchen was well stocked with enough pots,... More

This is not a hotel. It is not a resort. It is a bunch of apartments, some owner-operated, that are rented out by a management company. My aged parents booked a 2 bedroom apartment here. Their friends were unable to come with them because of a serious illness, but Mantra refused to let them downgrade to a less expensive apartment.... More

Dear Peter W, Thank you for taking the time and reviewing our property on behalf of your parents. It is truly disappointing to see the rating you gave Mantra Amphora and to read about your parents experience whilst in Palm Cove. You are right, Mantra Amphora operates under the Mantra Resort brand and is part of the Mantra Group which... More

The room was lovely, although not much bench space in the bathroom for cosmetics. We stayed in a balcony room with a Queen bed over looking the pool, which looks magic at night. Location was great, close to all the beautiful restaurants. I wouldn't suggest staying there if you have trouble walking as we were on the top floor and... More
