We rented a single bed room apartment on the third floor overlooking the pool. The whole place was tastefully furnished and clean. There were air conditioning units in the living room and bed room as well as ceiling fans. The kitchen was fully operational with a fridge ,microwave, hotplate, dishwasher, and washing machine and dryer. The kitchen utensil drawer was... More

Stayed here with my Mother & 6 year old Nephew. Got given a nice room with a spa bath on the ground floor, close the pool and path to the beach just a close distance across the road. This was just perfect because it meant that we could access the pool quickly (which we used once, sometimes twice a day)... More

I joined friends staying at Palm Cove but found their taste a little too expensive for my budget so went looking for alternative accomodation - I've used Mantra in Melbourne so was familiar with the brand, the price was right and the pictures looked nice so I booked. I was surprised to discover that my affordable choice put me much... More

This was a perfect hotel to end our trip in Cairns, we stayed for 2 nights and the atmosphere was so chilled and relaxing. The pool area is fantastic and very spacious. The room was bigger then average with a jetted batch tub to top it off. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Our room was neat and tidy, the AC slightly noisy and no bathroom fan which made for unpleasant odours lingering. The pool is nice but is frequented by locals with toddlers. Each day at about 3pm they rock up, take all of the car parks and occupy the pool. Yesterday I counted 30 of the little screaming terrors in there.... More

Dear David H, Thank you very much for your feedback on Mantra Amphora. We pride ourselves on being a popular destination for both families and couples, despite that, when travelling over Easter/School Holidays you should come with expectation of an abundance of families staying and the accompanying noise. Our suggestion would be to travel outside of public holidays/ school holidays... More

This was probably the 4th time we've stayed at the Mantra. We love how there is one large central communal pool, catering to all ages from a wading area to spa, to a deep end! The Mantra seems to be a little more secluded being down the end of Palm Coves main beachfront road. But it's still within walking distance... More

We recently stayed in a studio room for a long weekend away. Hotel staff were friendly and efficient and the hotel grounds clean and well kept (albeit the pool could have used topping up) and the gardens are beautiful. The resort is close to the beach and some lovely restaurants. The hotel room itself was a nice size and had... More
