We were extremely pleased with the room - it was spacious with a balcony and a large spa-jet bath. It was fully self contained which was nice. The only thing we didn't like was that you could hear a lot of noise from other rooms - plumbing, footsteps, doors closing etc. My parents stayed at the other side of the... More

This hotel is in a beautiful setting, and the overall hotel set-up works well if you're looking for all-in-one holiday experience. Especially perfect I'd say for kids. This is a very large hotel, with 5-7 buildings / wings, leading to some long walks to/from your room and not a lot of access points. The facilities are pretty new. Staff is... More

We stayed in a hotel room for 3 nights. The hotel is practically on the beach and our room had a partial sea view. The exterior of the hotel is beautiful; perfectly manicured gardens, lovely lagoon pool with plenty of sun loungers. The negatives were that you have to hire tennis rackets and balls and the room was very small.... More

My Husband & I recently stayed for 2 nights in a standard 1 bedroom hotel room. The room was small but quite nice for a hotel room, it was clean and modern with a private balcony overlooking the garden, we had everything we needed. We had a Groupon offer which included breakfast and that's where we were let down- in... More

This hotel is no more than 100 meters from a unspoiled beach where you can walk for kms with only meeting about 3 couples. We able to see whales breaching themselves and slapping their fins against the water. The hotel is positioned near some lovely restaurants and a very family oriented pub with good food. Our room looked over the... More

Really enjoyed this place, the room was lovely with an unexpected large bath. The bed was comfortable and all the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We had an ocean view and balcony area with pool views. Will recommend.

Well it has been approx 4 1/2 years since our last visit and once again we enjoyed our stay. I found a great rate including breakfast at both Peppers and at Salt and decided on a Mantra Salt hotel room for two nights this time. Although we feel Peppers is a slightly better property, we like the layout of Mantra.... More

Worst beds ever. Someone in management decided to save some money and put together single beds to make up a bigger bed. A thick hard strip down the middle ensures a horrible night's sleep. A $50 upgrade will get you a proper bed. The staff are clearly used to people complaining and offer a mattress topper which is also useless.... More
