I have stayed at many Mantra Resorts and have always enjoyed them thoroughly. Not Zanzibar. The staff were lovely / friendly but the resort itself is very run down and I don't think maintained regularly. We booked for 2 nights in a penthouse for $1000.00. Upon entering the room we were greeted by a unwelcoming smell. We found water coming... More

The unit was nice, the building is in a great spot if you like eating out and has great ocean views. Reception lady was lovely and gave us a late checkout on request. The unit needed some more kitchen items, but that didn't worry us too much as we were only there a night. Will be back.

we are staying at Zanzibar as I write----location convenient to beach, restaurants, shops and Coles supermarket. The building itself is tired and the particular unit we are in 405 needs a total refurbish. The units in the past had an Africian theme which was interesting, the present decor is totally boring, not beachy, dull and dreary! The curtains dirty and... More

We’ve just stayed at Mantra Zanzibar Mooloolaba for 9 days and would like to provide some feedback. Overall our stay was very enjoyable and we would definitely return for another holiday in due course. The location is great, close to the beach, many eateries around and only a short walk to grocery store (Coles). The reception staff was very friendly... More

We came to the Mantra Zanzibar for 4 nights just before New Years Eve whilst on holiday in Australia and it was an interesting concept the 5 members of my family staying in an appartment together for this length of time. The room was clean and spacious. It was nice that we had our privacy but more family came over... More

Mantra Zanzibar what can I say.....great location and friendly staff but that's about it. We stayed in a 3 bed apartment on the 9th floor - great view - but very shabby apartment. Laundry door was stuck open at 45 degrees so impeded on the narrow hallway, you had to make sure to walk on one side of the hall... More

We stayed at Zanzibar for 4 nights over Christmas in Room 903 on the 9th floor. Apartment was clean,light and tastefully decorated. Well appointed kitchen, though we would have liked a water jug to fill up for fridge. Fabulous views! However, halfway through our stay, we arrived back at 9.30pm after a night out,only to find that we were locked... More

classic example of location location location. thats all this place has going for it... The apartment we had on the 3rd floor was HUGE, however the layout meant that the space is very unusable; strange glass-top tables taking up most of that space. It looked like it had been decorated for a 90s safari-themed adult movie (a filthy zebra print... More
