“excellent all around resort!”
Reviewed December 6, 2007

I was staying at the Frangipani resort on October 2007 with my father who came from Indonesia. It was a very nice place to stay and the relaxing environment is just wonderful. When we arrived and do the paper work we were greeted politely and in a relaxed manner by the owner and staffs there. I would like to compliment the staffs for their great, friendly service during our stay. Everything from tour bookings to car hire was arranged by the staffs on time when i wanted it. I would recommend this resort to everyone that is travelling their next holiday to Broome.

Thank you.

After reading a review about the Frangipani I felt the need to express my feelings. The resort advertises itself as a self contained resort which means basically that the essentials are provided - all linen, cooking facilities, washing machine & dryer (to do towels if fresh ones are required daily). A complementary supply of tea/cofee, sugar etc, plus shampoo soap, condltioner etc was provided on arrival. People must take responsibility for what they book - if they want daily service, clean towels, extra toilet paper etc they need to book into serviced accommodation which is usually more expensive. We have travelled often and his is a standard in Australi and all over the world. We have nothing but positive things to say about the Frangipani - great service, wonderful clean accommodation, beautiful well maintained quiet surrounds. The resort is a credit to the managers, John, Renata & Colin. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you.

The Frangipani is very new and we were very pleased with our choice of accommodation for our time in Broome. It created a very comfortable base for our time to explore Cable Beach and nearby areas. It was quiet, peaceful and tranquil.

ARRIVAL
We took the bus on arriving at Broome airport. It was $7.50 per person one way to the accommodation. The driver was most friendly and gave commentary on the town and area on the way to dropping guests off to their respective hotels and resorts. There were a few taxis available as well and hire car companies. We hired a car for the remaining time of our stay, took the local bus from Cable Beach to the bus stop closest to the airport and easily picked it up. The bus was $3.00 per person. All day hop on and off tickets were $9.00.

RECEPTION/BOOKING
The hours of the reception are from 0800 to 1700. If arrival times are outside these like ours was it was easy to email or call in advance and advise the flight times etc. Check in 1400. Check out time is 1000. There is a storage area for luggage and shower/toilet facilities to return and change before taking a flight in the afternoon after check out to freshen up. There was a good range of brochures of tours available at reception and the staff can assist in making these for guests with a charge back facility to the room. We liked the independence that the Frangipani offers that between check in and check out and not having to worry about daily servicing for example. If one is looking for a full service resort (room service, daily cleaning, and activities) then this may not be the place, however, if it is an apartment option with privacy & no intrusions it is the choice!

ROOM
We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. It had everything we could dream of for our stay & more. On entry there was a verandah with the bbq, day bed and outside fan & table. The sliding door led into the open plan living. Large sofa with chaise, ottoman, flat screen TV with satellite channels, dining table and chairs and nice modern furnishings. The kitchen area had a large fridge, dishwasher, oven and hotplates. It was fully equipped with all crockery, utensils, pots and glasses. Complimentary starts up items are placed in the room and additional items can then be purchased at the supermarkets in Broome or the local store in Cable Beach. The second sliding door is between the living area and bedroom creating privacy. The large king bed had linen that is changed once if the stay is more than 7 nights. The welcome letter received on check in requests that all guests remove all rubbish from the apartments and place in the garbage bins on site. The basin for the bathroom is inside and the outdoor shower was a novelty. There was a hidden laundry with washer/dry combination, additional sink area and items to clean the apartment with (ideal for the long stay guest). The WC was located at the rear of the apartment convenient to the bedroom area.

FACILITIES
Two swimming pools are on site, one larger one with a waterfall and a small one. Both pool areas have very comfortable and modern sun lounges with ample shade. There is plenty of parking around the property and a little road that runs through the middle of it connecting Millington Road to Lullfitz drive.

AREA
Frangipani is about 1.5 km walk to Cable Beach. If using Millington Road on exiting the hotel it is lit of a night, avoid walking along Lullfitz drive as it has no lights until the Rendezvous hotel. It was tranquil and safe to walk around, however we hired a car for the second part of our stay. There is a bus stop just on Lullfitz drive that will be pointed out by the local people (easy to miss) but the schedule is limited. The first service from the bus stop closest to Frangipani was 0911 and last one 1611. Where as a short walk away the bus stop near the Blue Seas resorts operates from 0744 to 1644. For the bus take exact monies. We enjoyed at meal at the Zanders restaurant on Cable Beach Reserve. We had also wanted to eat at Café Carlotta but unfortunately it was closed on Sundays & Mondays (the two nights we ate out). Nearby is also the Zoo café to try. On Cable Beach we were pleasantly welcomed with that the following can be hired; umbrellas, deck chairs, sun lounges, boogie boards, bag of children’s toys, and surfboards. There are also specials for half and full day use. We hired an umbrella and two sun lounges for $25.00 for half day. Each hire included sunscreen and cold water (very cold!). Cable Beach is an amazing beach, 22kms long and a tide that goes out 10 meters. It is great to walk along and it is one of the nicest beaches we have visited. The water temperature of the beach was 25 degrees (great sign on display).

  • Liked — The apartment as a whole and the privacy
  • Disliked — Distance to the beach by foot, very convenient by car/ bus though

The Frangipani is a beautiful and tranquil place to stay. The best part is lying on the day beds and listening to the frogs croak in the lush gardens. The problem with the Frangipani is the lack of service. We were there for 7 nights but there is no room service, even to come and change the rubbish bin having told reception it was overflowing. On our last day we left our luggage in the cloakroom as our flight was at 10pm and Virgin Blue won't let you check in until 6.30pm. On returning to Frangipani at 7pm to collect our bags reception was locked and when they finally turned up 20 mins after our call, they didn't seem too concerned. In a nutshell it is a stunning place to stay but the caravan park opposite probably has better service!

Paul1919, Manager at Mantra Frangipani Broome, responded to this review, December 6, 2007
My name is John Stedman and i am the Manager of The Frangipani and respond to the writers comments and provide the following response so that readers have the correct information.

The Frangipani offers guests complimentary luggage storeage and showering facilities during office hours (8.00am - 5.00pm).

The guest was advised of opening and closing times but chose to ignore the information provided to her.
Self contained accommodation does not have 24 hour Reception facilities as is the case with hotels.


Sulo bins are strategically placed within the property so that guests can empty their household waste daily or as required. It is not usual for our guests to let their waste overflow in their rooms in an unhygenic manner. Emptying household waste bins is a basic requirement in self contained accommodation, thus ensuring unwanted pests are not introduced into the rooms. I am perplexed as to why this guest did not empty her waste in the bins provided for this purpose.

Should this guest have required 5 star hotel accommodation with daily room servicing and room service etc, I would suggest paying the premium at a hotel that provides the services she requires in the future.

My brother and I stayed in a 2-bed apartment here for 10 days. The accommodation was great - very new and stylish and with everything needed for a comfortable stay. We were lucky to be right next to the pool too.

Even when the resort was full - as it was most days we were there - it was quiet and relaxing.

We enjoyed the walk to the beach (10-15 mins) and took the bus when we wanted to go into town (every hour right outside our door) which only took 15 mins.

The staff were friendly and helpful and gave us many accurate tips regarding local restaurants.

I'd definitely stay here again and our friends who were in Broome at the same time (at the Blue Seas) said they would go there next time too.

We stayed at the Frangipani in July this year. It is situated about 1.5 km from Cable Beach proper so to walk to the beach and then have a walk aong the beach you are covering a fair distance. A hire car is a good move and we hired one when we stayed. The grounds are still new and will be good when the plants are more mature. The pool area is very nice and the sun lounges are great. The rooms themselves are very well appointed with modern appliances. There are two air conditioners in each 1 bed apartment and a fan on the porch. The only things that we felt that could be improved upon were : there should be a mid week service of the apartments to change towels / sheets etc. You can pay more for this but for the rate that is charged for the rooms this should be included. The cleaning of the rooms could be done better as we found quite a bit of dust on the mirror frames and a few other places. The outdoor shower is good but it does need a thatch roof if you want a shower in the wet season. It will be interesting to see how the grounds shape up as it appeared that there was nobody actually looking after them with leaves not being raked etc. However the resort is only new and about the same stage as the Sanctuary Resort ie second stage just completed. We had a look at the Sanctuary rooms and would much prefer the Frangipani or Blue Seas Resort. Sanctuary is a self rated resort and from what we saw, charging top price for a moderate resort.

The Frangipani Resort is fantastic, to say the least. We ended up staying there for three days out of our 26 day Aussi tour. The resort has spanking new, well equiped, clean and luxury feel apartments which include a plasma TV and an amazing Weber BBQ. The pool area is clean and well exquiped with canopies, umbrellas and plently of comfortable chaise lounge chairs. The staff was extremely helpful and promptly set up tours, a car rental we requested (which was delivered to us as the resort in less than 30minutes), and various other requests (ie. extra blankets, soap). Cable beach is only a 10-15min walk from the resort, with the Zoo Cafè within reach. I would definately recommend this resort as price/quality, details and attentive service are excellent!!!!
