Have stayed here on three occasions, and will be returning at the end of the year once more! This is a fantastic place to stay, especially for families. The pool is large and a relaxing area. The Mantra Amphora is located just across the road from the beach. The rooms are large and spacious, especially the 3 bedroom apartment. Great... More

2nd stay here and again didn't disappoint! Lovely apartment with fantastic pool. The massage at the spa was wonderful, the staff at the resort are all friendly and helpful. Palm cove is a wonderful place to do absolutely nothing except swim eat and drink!

we have just returned from a few days here. The resort is lovely but our room left a lot to be desired. Our airconditioning was faulty and either wouldn't work or would work for a bit then switch off. We paid the same price as our friends and their room had 3 tv's whilst ours only had 1. The rooms...

I completely support CateSydney's review. 3 bedroom apartment (we had ocean views) was an excellent choice. Everything was superb. The noise complaints people have made in their reviews being next door to the restaurant? Utter rubbish. Our room was right next door (albeit on the top level) and we didn't hear a thing inside!!! Very little noise when we were... More

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment opposite the beach. Three couples. All had our own bathroom. The whole place has louvres that create a natural air con even though there is air conditioning if needed. Fans as well. Great balcony. Great pool. Great bar and restaurant. Maybe a little noisy with people walking past at night but it did... More

We stayed at Mantra Amphora during the last leg of our 3 week honeymoon to Australia. We were greeted by Pam at reception who checked us in and proved to be very helpful to us throughout our stay. We had booked a hotel style room, which was of a good size and nicely furnished. I had requested at the time... More

Because of the great location next to the beach in the middle of Palm Cove (and because of the great deal we got!), we stayed here for the second time. The 1 bedroom apartment was of an excellent size and very well maintained. It had a spa in the bathroom, decent kitchen and was great for two people. Very much... More

Wow!! The mantra palm cove lived up to our high expectations!!! We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with adjoining hotel room (where our two year old could sleep) and the apartment was nothing short of AMAZING!! It was HuGE and probably the nicest place we have ever stayed in!! The decor was modern and comfortable and the paintwork was... More

We visited Palm Cove and loved every minute. The Amphora has a great pool for kids and is well setup for a family holiday. Palm Cove is a world away from the hussel and bussel of Cairns but is closer enough for a short day trip to Cairns (only 25mins) and Kuranda. The whole area is like one big resort... More

I stayed for six nights in a 1 bedroom apartment on the top floor. I would not recommend the ground floor as they are noisy and lack privacy. The apartment was spacious but tired. The bathroom needed a good scrub and the whole apartment could do with a paint. Staff were super helpful and friendly. The pool area is spacious... More
