Great spot for accessing the shops, surrounded by great restaurants, easy access to the lagoon and marina. Security system in place gave great peace of mind. The reception staff were invaluable and couldn't do enough to assist.

We enjoyed our stay at the Mantra for one night in Cairns. The staff were so friendly and warm but also helpful and highly professional. The hotel was also in the perfect location and views from the ocean view balcony were breathtaking.

Poor wifi, they charge you for it and is very week and only works intermittently. Hotel is unconcerned about this, as they use an outside vendor to provide wifi. Many other better hotel options close by!! I do not recommend this hotel.

Beautiful rooms and walking distance to city and Esplanade. Carparking is in house and very convenient. While certainly not the cheapest rooms available you do get what you pay for. Ours was an apartment complete with laundry which makes life much easier when travelling with young children. Lovely private pool.

Literally opposite the "lagoon". Right on the waterfront and with eateries really close by. Lovely rooms, in good condition and well cleaned. Gorgeous pool and towels are provided. Front staff very helpful and attentive.

We had a great stay and was always welcomed by the friendly staff at the desk. The location is great, close to shops, food and the lagoon across the road is an excellent spot for kids and adults to swim in.

Perfect spot with excellent views, received a room upgrade to ocean view. Nice balcony with table and chairs. Very comfortable room and great value for money. Good facilities incl car parking and easy walk to restaurants and shops. Guest elevators in need of a refurbish and and ice machine with wine buckets available for guests would be better than having...

Great location with very friendly staff. Rooms where comfortable and clean. Didn't really get a chance to use facilities but hotel was neat and tidy. Would certainly recommend the Mantra for value for money and location.

“Don't bother paying extra for a beach facing room, the beaches have been ruined by sand dredging, it's better to look out towards the hills.”
