“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I
Stayed here for 1 night in a 2 bedroom apartment while I attended a school reunion. The check-in staff were friendly and helpful and were able to store my bag until the apartment was ready. The hotel is in a great location close to restaurants, cafes and beaches. It was very handy having a Coles and BWS next door.
The apartment was on the North East corner on the 14th floor. It was spacious and had great views of the ocean from the wrap around balcony. The beds were comfortable and I was surprised at how quiet the room was.
The ensuite bathroom was small with just one handbasin and a shower over a circular spa bath. It was an unusual design with a large clear glass window inset into the exterior wall of the building so that you looked towards the coastline and other apartment buildings. The shower curtain did cover the window but I wondered if you could see through it at night.
I definitely would stay there again.

Room Tip: Corner room on the higher floors.

Dear 83helmar
Thank you for your positive review on your recent stay at Mantra Mooloolaba Beach for your high school reunion. It is great to read you enjoyed your time at the resort and found the staff to be friendly and helpful.
The resort is ideally located on The Esplanade of Mooloolaba - and it's great to hear you found our location within walking distance to restaurant, shops, public transport and beaches to be so handy.
I'd like to assure you that you cannot see through the shower curtains in our bathrooms.

We needed a bit of R and R away from our busy job in NZ so choose this hotel. It was perfect for us.Great location handy to everywhere. A pleasant room with great view over the ocean and a balcony that allowed us to have plenty of sunshine and to watch the sunset each night. Awesome pools. The lovely staff were amazing. Would definitlyrecommend and we will be back again very soon.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the northern end for sunshine.

Stayed here whilst attending a conference at the Mantra. Many things make it a good choice and you would not be disappointed in bring a group of people here.

I was in room 106 ... First floor ... Back door opened out into an outdoor area for the unit, which was linked to BBQ and pool areas. Would be a great place for families with young ones who want to watch them run around and be in the pool from their own area close by. Self contained apartment with a spa bath, microwave and decent sized fridge. Wooden louvres and blinds on windows and no curtains mean you will not get a completely dark area for sleep if you want that. Bed comfortable and all very clean. No complaints with the room.

There is secure parking underneath and you could not have to use your car whilst here if you wanted to. There is a Coles supermarket next door, bottle shops and restaurants galore within walking distance on the front esplanade strip, and the beach straight across the road. Although I cannot recommend "The Pub" hotel out the back which was recommended to us ... Feralsville personified!!

The conference facilities are good. You can get wifi and plenty of other useful things in the package. Meals at the Cracked Pepper restaurant adjoining the resort were good too.

So why not five dots? We got stuck in the lift one day .... This happened to several people we heard from. When we told a maintenance guy when we got out, he seemed disinterested ... Not even an apology or recognition that this was an issue! It was a small thing, but every employee has a responsibility to make the team work - he did not do his job and let the team down this time!

Otherwise, not a problem with recommending this place.

I only stayed one night which unfortunately was not for vacation purposes but I truely felt relaxed, maybe because the weather was a lot warmer than home but mainly because the room was extremely spacious, the staff were friendly and the location was amazing! Over looking the beach and right on the esplanade! Even though it is getting a little bit tired, it had all of the comforts of a beach hotel including a lovely balcony! Will definately come and stay again but for a longer amount of time!

spend a month here and while the staff were brilliant over that period of time after travelling to lots of places over time for work and play felt for what it claims to be it is looking a bit tired internally, the rooms are nice over all and the location is terrific and close to everything you need. For a short trip away would say yes but not for a longer stay, noisy most nights even midweek, TV works intermittingly, foxtel channels offered are very limited and reception poor.
just an average on this one

We stayed here overnight for my boyfriends birthday, in an ocean view room...amazing! Small, but perfect size for a couple just wanting to get away. We were on the 9th floor and the view of the ocean was beautiful. Our room was opposite the lift, but not noisy at all. The bedroom was nice and loved the bed, so comfy. The room was very clean, definitely not a 5-star, posh fancy room (go stay at the Versace if that's what you're after!), but it was homely, warm and comfortable to chill out in which is exactly what we wanted :)
Definitely worth the price, if not it was better, which surprised me considering some of the reviews I previously read on here about it. If you're after a comfortable, homely-feel place to stay with stunning views then I definitely recommend this place, in an ocean view room!
