“So convenient to the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This was my second stay here, several years apart, and it was even better this time. The hotel is ideally located for holidaymakers, with convenient parking underneath. There are 2 pools (1 indoor, 1 outdoor). Our 1 bedroom apartment was perfectly sized for a couple, and had an ocean view from the balcony, where we could watch the sunset. The beach is just across the road, with many restaurants, shops and surf club within easy walking distance along the Esplanade. They close the Esplanade to traffic on New Years' Eve so thousands of people can attend the annual fireworks display on the beach.There is a supermarket behind the hotel where you can purchase self-catering supplies, and you can even get direct access from there back into the hotel with your room card. All in all, it was a lovely New Year's Eve weekend away, and value for money in peak holiday season. Would definitely recommend for anyone not wanting to have to use your car whilst on holidays as you can walk to all local attractions, including Alexandra Headland and Underwater World. The exception would be if you want to see a movie or go to Sunshine Plaza at Maroochydore, which is only about a 10 minute bus or car trip away.

Room Tip: Rooms along the Venning St corner can get a lot of traffic noise, so avoid those if you can.

I stayed at the Mantra Mooloolaba over the Christmas period this year, and I was thoroughly impressed with the 'family-friendly' facilities, and the overall location of the hotel. Even if the weather was less than perfect, my little girl could still swim to her heart's content in the indoor pool!

Room Tip: I believe all of the rooms are of an equally great standard, and have beautiful ocean views.

I stayed at the Mantra whilst on business and I found it to be well suited to my needs. The self contained apartment was quite spacious and had all of the comforts of home, even a washing machine! It is well situated across from the beach, on the main strip near all the shops and restaurants and nextdoor to Coles. This would be perfect for a family get away.

We had a fantastic 6 days at Mantra, staff lovely and wonderful views from our 1 bed ocean view apartment. If there is one thing that Mantra could do to improve the experience, it would be to provide free or cheaper Internet - we wanted to stay in touch with family and paid (Dec 2012) £25 for 3 days. In saying that, there were numerous cafes very close by offering free wifi with a purchase. The apartment was extremely comfortable and we spent most evenings enjoying a lovely glass of wine, watching the sunset from the balcony. Also, despite work going on in reception (new carpet etc) we were not once disturbed by noise or workmen and the staff were always extremely obliging.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which had fabulous views over the ocean. My daughters loved the pool and we loved the central location - Coles supermarket 2 minute walk away, restaurants and cafes 5 minutes and the ocean a hop skip and jump away!

We loved our very brief stay and will try to come back soon.
