“Beautiful decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

this is a lovely hotel to stay. Aztec style surroundings. Beautiful pool and great restaurant onsite. This hotel slightly away from Cavil avenue but close enough for the action that some people might want for surfers paradise. Great deal is no paying for secure parking. Plenty of things to do close by and bus is right outside the hotel. Perfect for all the family

Room Tip: happy hour is great value and free secure parking is great.

Hi debbie1961255068,
Thank you for your review and positive feedback from your stay.
Our Aztec theme is different and unique and the majority of our guests do agree with your comments. There are a lot of wonderful facilities for our guests and we are a true family resort.
I do hope we are able to welcome you back when next you travel to the Gold Coast.
Regards,
Michael W Murtagh

Stayed 4 nights in Sun City on the 20th floor in a one bedroom apartment with ocean views. The apartment looked liked it had been refurbished recently and was very inviting. The decor was modern and the apartment was very clean. For once it was nice to sit on clean couches and walk barefoot on a clean carpet. The pool area was great and a real bonus if you had a family with small children as there are water slides and a sandy "beach" area. The walk to Cavill Avenue took around 10 minutes and was enjoyable along the beach. We also took advantage of the day spa and had a wonderful massage and facial. I would recommend this motel and couldnt really find any fault with it apart from not being able to stay longer!

Room Tip: I spoke to another person at the pool area who said their room was tired looking so if possible ask...

Stayed 7 nights at Sun City in October. We booked a one bedroom apartment which was huge! Some of the furnishings were a bit out dated but the facilities of both the room and the hotel were excellent. The pools and spa were all very clean and well maintained. 5 minute walk to Cavil ave and shopping areas and a 5 minute drive to Seaworld. Very good value for families.

This place looks flash in the advertising but is getting really tired and worn. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was quite big. The building, facilities and rooms are all in desparate need of some love and TLC

In the main bedroom there were 2 single beds pushed together but with no zipper or protector or anything to join them and to stop you falling down the gap. This resulted in a really lousy nights sleep. We showed the manger but he just shrugged his shoulders. Not on for the price of the room.

When we arrived there was a problem with our room booking and even though their own staff had entered the booking and comments in their system we were informed that an extra bed wasnt possible even though we called the night before and requested it direct with the hotel. The management are really rude which is such a shame as the other staff are really friendly

The water slides were cool but the water was freezing so heaps of blue kids running around!!

We would never stay here again simply because of the bad attitude of the management

NO FREE INTERNET!! Come on. Who has hotels these days without internet. Really expensive to buy!!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean view room (17th floor) first week of October, 2 adults & 2 teenage sons, and would have no hesitation in reccommending Mantra Sun City to our family and friends. The unit was extremely clean, tidy, and everything worked. The views were sensational, and after a hard day at the theme parks, was great to relax and unwind with a drink or two on the balcony. Staff were excellent and very accomodating of any requests, and the facilities on offer were first class. Location to the airport, beaches, restaurants, and theme parks made travelling times a breeze (even with school holidays). If you are after 5+ star accomodation, then look elsewhere, however, if you are after "Value for Money" enjoyable family accomodation, then Mantra Sun-City is definitely the go. Location, Location, Location.

Room Tip: Grab a corner suite if you can - it will be worth your while !

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 5 nights on a special deal including breakfast and an ocean view. I have to say that this place is really great. The apartment was spacious and clean. Modern kitchen and appliances with everything you would want. The pool with the water slides kept the kids entertained for hours and the bar and restaurant were good. This hotel is close to everything around the Gold Coast and with free parking what more can you ask for? Had a fantastic stay and can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: Ocean room views are amazing.
