“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Thought it was good value for money, everything we needed full kitchen and laundry, huge balcony, nice pool. A little far from Cavil Ave (to walk with a child but very short drive) but this made it quieter. Overall I would highly recommend.

Stayed overnight with 5 tweens - close to beach and Surfer's Paradise.
Bit noisy on the traffic side and average views from where we were located but our 3 br apartment was very spacious and clean. The seasonally heated pool was great for the kids. Nice and big - and they loved the spa. Bit pricey for low season, but 3br apartments can be hard to come by...

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the main road, otherwise the doors have to stay closed if you want s...

Great views, comfortable bed, very clean. Friendly staff, neat modern facilities (gym/pool/bbq). Traffic noise can be loud as located on Hwy. Average lounge. Not far from Broadbeach or Surfers heart. Would return.

Spent a long weekend up there with a hire car June 12 - 15, 2014.
After hours automated check in easy, so is underground car parking.
Friendly reception, and wonderfully spacious, light apartments with great views.
Wish we were staying longer, and highly recommend the place as it represents great value for money.
Fully self contained with everything you need (except salt & pepper!) and even did all our washing and drying before we left. A place well spent. Thanks to Renee and the team at Mantra Wings.

Room Tip: Just request nice views, though I am sure most of them do, some of the beach, others of the Hinterla...

Stayed at Mantra Wings GC for one night wished it was longer!! Great view looking from the balcony towards the beach. Short walk to the beach front and restaurants. Two bedroom apartment with an extra bed for five people. Well maintained apartment. Kids loved it, especially the spa and heated pool. Would not hesitate to book again!!

Dear C T, thank for your recent Review on our Trip Advisor Review site, I was pleased to read that you had such a wonderful time in such a short stay. We often find the Pool is a big hit with families travelling with kids especially this time of the year with a heated pool.

I look forward to welcoming you back to the Resort again some time in the future when I hope you will be able to relax for a longer stay.

Thanks once again for your feedback.

Kind Regards

We had a lovely long weekend, with family at Mantra Wings. The 3 bedroom apartment had great views of both the river and the ocean, and was surrounded by an extended balcony. We were within walking distance of the Q1 Teppanyaki restaurant and morning breakfast. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Shower screen was fixed within hours of mentioning it didn't slide properly. Bed overspread and cushions could do to be revamped. Leather couch was very comfortable. Plenty of living space. The kids loved the heated pool and declared the spa was warmer than a bath. Will continue to stay at Mantra Apartments. Love the complimentary late checkout by being a C U Soon Club Member.

Dear Kerryn C, thank you for your recent contribution towards our Trip Advisor Review site, I'm pleased to hear we were able to accommodate you so comfortably across the long weekend. The location of the Resort is something I am constantly talking to future guests about so thankyou for re-emphasing our location of being within walking distance of the centre of Surfers Paradise.
It was also pleasing to read that you enjoyed the late check out offered to C U Soon members.

Thank you once again, I look forward to welcoming you back to the Resort some time in the future.

Kind Regards
