We spent the weekend at Mantra on Salt. We got a free upgrade from a hotel room to a one bedroom spa suite. Breakfast was included each day and the food was great. We went to Seasons next door for the degustation one night, food was great, service was first class. Fantastic short break from the Gold Coast, peaceful, relaxing... More

This was a great hotel to get away from the Gold Coast for the weekend. It felt like we were in tropical North Queensland. The pool was beautiful, the room was spacious, the beach was minutes walk away from the resort. It was just amazing. I didn't feel rushed or anything while I was staying there. I wouldn't definitely go... More

We've stayed here a few times only because Peppers have been booked out. Always a good stay but geared for families more. The rooms are good. The fish & chips here is delicious! Plenty parking onsite and even closer to the beach. Very close to restaurants which is a big plus!

I was working in the Tweed Coast area and decided to stay at Mantra on Salt Beach. I stayed in a one bedroom spa suite. Ok digs. Really like the big bath. The weather was terrible when I was there so I didn't even walk out to the pool area but it looked ok. There were some renovations going on... More

I stayed at Mantra on Salt Beach on two different occasions in July 2015. On the first occasion I booked two studio rooms and one of the rooms were upgraded to a one bedroom. I enjoyed the extra room and facilities of the one bedroom. The two tvs were useful as my son enjoyed watching his own programs. The service... More

Mantra on Salt Beach was a great family friendly place to stay. Plenty of amenities. Could see the beach from our room which was only a short walk. Buffet breakfast was also excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful.

My husband and I stayed here back in November 2013. Big room, poor cleanliness. Staff not helpful and ended up regretting booking here and would definitely book peppers next time. No way in hell can they say they are 4 stars rating. Not luxurious at all. Better for families not loved up couples
