We stayed here last week and have stayed here in the past. First the positives: - The location is amazing - The facilities are good, gym, pool etc - The shower pressure was awesome, it was like a stand up spa each time - The 3BR rooms were quite large and we could easily get privacy Some of the negatives:...

Stayed for a 3 night getaway for birthday/wedding anniversary and we were impressed once again. Room was recently renovated with amazing views and plenty of shops below. We will definitely be back again.

Location is excellent. Accommodation is great with self contained facilities. Fantastic view. Easy with a rental car. Central location close to all facilities and easy walk to supermarket. Gym is poor. Booked through Entertainment Book - good deal.

Had a short 2 night stay in a 3 bedroom apartment on the weekend. Good sized and in a great location on the esplanade close to a range of restaurants, the surf club and shopping. The view from the 9th floor straight out to the sea was also mesmerising. It's due for a bit of a freshen up though as... More

Can't fault the location which is perfect and underground parking very useful. Disappointed with the apartment, I booked 9 months in advance and our travel agent emailed asking if we could have a refurbished apartment on a high floor (after reading previous reviews). She re-emailed 6 weeks and then a week prior to our stay as she'd had no replies... More

If you have a family you have no choice but to book the Mantra, it is worth every penny. Mantra has the most amazing lay-outs of their rooms. They are like a 5 star resort compared to my experience at Landmark resort nextdoor which I rate as worse than a backpackers, Mantra service is 100% better than Landmark resort. Mantras... More

We had a wonderful time at The Zanzibar again. Very spacious rooms, clean and well appointed. I could see the waves rolling in as I showered!! The view is the best you will find, absolute beach front. Take a lift ride down and you are right in the heart of Mooloolaba shopping, cafes and restaurants. An excellent and memorable stay....
