We arrived at Mantra with our 2 young kids at night time and were a little weary, but thankfully the check-in was friendly and efficient and we were in our room in no time at all. I had previously requested a room "as high up as possible" and we were given the 9th floor so the view was brilliant. We were on the right hand side of the building (Tweed Heads side) and this captures the morning sun so I would definitely request this side again.
The room itself was better than the web-site displays with quite modern furniture, modern kitchen, very large balcony with access from both bedrooms and the lounge. The only strange thing was that they provided our kids with a double bed instead of 2 singles, odd because they knew we were travelling with kids. Although I didn't complain because our kids are so young that we knew it wouldn't make any difference to their sleeping habits anyway.
We thought all staff were friendly and many of them would chat to us in the hallways and lifts. I did ask for a late checkout because our flight was pushed back 4 hours and they could only offer me an extra hour at a charge of $20 which I thought was a bit stingy. However, they kept our bags for us and gave us a key to the pool (and toilets, showers) which I thought was quite reasonable given that we were hanging around for approx 6 hours after check-out.
The location is also perfect right across the road from the beach, childrens playground and BBQ's. There are also plenty of bars, cafe's and restaurants to the left, right and behind the hotel. We had a fantastic holiday and were even treated to dolphins on our second last day and whales which we spotted from our balcony waving us goodbye on our last hour in the resort.
