“Perfect Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Our first stop on our round the world tour, this hotel was recommended by ma & da who were here last year. It didn't disappoint, we love the beach, the watersports, the great selection of restaurants, we could easily live out here. Rooms are clean, spacious, staff are courteous and the hotel is well located near the beach.

A very good surprise in the heart of a touristic area. Very often touristic area means bad service and poor quality. That was exactly the opposite for Mantra Legends.

Clean room, nice ocean view, upgraded size room, more than warm greetings and service.
It was a very good choice to sepnd several days in Queensland.

Hi Vlada S

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback on TripAdvisor and I am glad that you found the Hotel to be clean, the ocean views appealing and the service from the team to your liking.

If you are ever visiting the Gold Coast from France again then I hope we see you back at Mantra Legends Hotel.

Kind regards

I don't often feel compelled to write a review, but I can't stress enough not to stay in a standard studio - noise from the adjoining rooms, dirty curtains and a small pokey space. A lack of available parking after a long drive to reach the hotel was also a major detractor (we had to park at a shopping centre two blocks away).

The roadworks through Surfers Paradise make finding the entrance a bit of a challenge (I'm suprised information wasn't posted on the hotel's website) as the street was blocked off at one end.

That said, the staff was friendly and we enjoyed the seafood buffet.

We've stayed at a few hotels in the area and this was definitely a poorer choice.

Room Tip: Upgrade - based on other travellers' reviews it seems to be a huge improvement.

Hi frequent_flyer_2106

Thanks for choosing to stay with us on your recent visit from London.

Our Deluxe room option has been upgraded and refurbished and is available for an incremental charge and many of our guests do choose the option to book this room type. That said, all rooms should be cleaned and serviced to a high standard and please do accept my apologies that the curtains in your room were not presented to an acceptable standard.

Road works in Surfers Paradise have been ongoing to make way for the Gold Coast Light Rail, which will be a fantastic addition to the transport options available to those visiting the Gold Coast.

Thanks also for your feedback regarding the friendly service from the team and the quality of our Seafood buffet - very much appreciated.

Kind regards

My partner and I stayed here in July, 2013. Despite being school holidays, the hotel was rather quiet. Room was clean and request for flowers and sparkling upon arrival was met with ease. As I was organising flowers externally, the sparkling was complimentary. A welcome note with the bubbly addressed us as newlyweds on our honeymoon, but we certainly didn't take offence! Perhaps some clarification was in order though, before making such an assumption. Our studio deluxe room on the 20th floor fit our needs perfectly, with all utensils, cutlery, cooking equipment and space required for simple meals. Bed was comfy and made each morning, and toiletries and towels restocked. View of beach and hinterland was beautiful in the day and at night, making our request for a higher floor completely justified. Poolside was nice, and the hotel surroundings were always clean. Only complaint would be the attempt to organise rose petals on the bed for our last night, which was instead delivered on the second last night. Wouldn't have been an issue if we weren't going out for dinner after dropping into the room only for a couple of minutes. The night manager made it seem like a big favour in not charging us for it, but some more complimentary sparkling fixed the problem!

It's clear that the staff at Legends are willing to do whatever is needed to make ones stay enjoyable, and we would happily return in the future.

Guests should know that it is best to choose a deluxe suite as they have been upgraded and are much better then the standard rooms. Also an ocean view room is worth the extra cost. It's brilliant waking up to the beautiful views of the ocean. Some rooms are better then others. For example some have bigger TV's then the standard . Units 1011 and 1012 are worth asking for as they have been newly upgraded and have great views.
You can request specific units when you book and is well worth it as iot doesn't cost you anymore.
The hotel foyer has been upgraded lately and the steam room is great!

Room Tip: Ask for 1011 or 1012. They have been newly upgraded and have bigger TV's and ocean views

Spent 4 nights at this place in June, 2013 with the family.

It's a super location, a few metres from the beachfront and there is an Indian Restaurant, serving authentic Indian food bang opposite the hotel.

The rooms are a bit cramped, otherwise it's a nice property and the staff is also friendly and helpful. The breakfast was nice and wholesome.

The amusements parks are a 15-20 mins. drive from the hotel and the Q1 and the whale-watching cruise pick-up point, is just a block away.

Room Tip: Take the higher floors.

We stayed in a hotel room but it was a generous size for the four of us. We had a glimpse of the ocean but the balcony was a little on the small side. The pool was lovely but we had to walk past reception and into foyer in our bathers which made us feel a bit silly! There were no pool cabana or pool towels either. A great location with the beach only a minute or two away.
