Whenever we ran out of anything, Reception was more than happy to replace free of charge. This included Pool Towles, Bathroom towles and Amenities. Tour advise was absolutley spot on and our Reef tour... More

Stayed here for 4 nights recently and thought it was great. It is right in the main street and straight across from the beach. The room was so light and calming, just how you would expect a room to be when in FNQ. Pros: *Close proximity to shops and beach. *Large clean and relaxing apartment overlooking the lagoon pool. *Rooms... More

We recently stayed at this hotel and it was fantastic, our accommodation was in perfect condition and overlooked the pool. We had the morning and afternoon sun on our balcony which was great. The pool was perfect for our young son who spent hours playing in it. This is great family accommodation and just a few steps away from the... More

We had really great help from reception prior to booking. Amber was fantastic going beyond to help my fiance organise his proposal. She assisted us throughout our stay and made it such a pleasure we hope to be back the same time next year, hopefully bringing with us family and friends. Rooms were great, pool magnificent and surrounding beaches and... More

We had a great time staying at Palm Cove. We had a studio room overlooking the pool. The room was just right for us, and had everything we needed. The only fault would be the hardness of the beds, this is something that Mantra should look into, I did not sleep well at all. The staff were friendly enough, nothing... More

I recently spent 2 weeks in the Mantra Amphora in Palm Cove. I requested a beach view room and the view was truly fantastic. It was on the 2nd floor with a lovely balcony. The apartment itself was very well set up with all you needed to cook for yourself, which we did. It was very clean, and the king-size... More

We were a family of four with older teenagers so the room we had was a dual key room which was excellent (i.e. two interconnecting rooms one with kitchen facilities). The view of the pool was great and the room was well equipped. We found the location on the esplanade very good, it was a short walk to everything. The... More

Our first necessity was to get a ground floor unit due to a wheelchair, it was the major necessity so we gave up on anything else. Having said that we had a nice view of the pool. We had a smaller 1 bedroom unit. It REALLY could have used a separate chair to go with the 2 seater lounge, there... More
