My husband and I stayed in Mantra Amphora just after Christmas and over New Years. At this time it's considered low season so you can expect very reasonable rates, unlike the weather - it's considered the low/rainy season at this time. We chose the hotel style room with spa and pool views. The room was a good size and opened up into a balcony. We thought it was sound proof well so you can expect peace and quiet despite the endless activities and noise at the pool. Overall the room and bathroom was clean and the spa in the tub worked well. It was equipped with all the basic necessities of a hotel room - with one difference, housekeeping is not included unless requested (which you have to pay extra for). The service at reception was friendly and professional. Fantastic location, with the beach right across the road. Great cafes and restaurant all within easy walking distance.
The pool was a very good size and bigger than most hotel pools in the area - so plenty of space to find your spot. The landscape was neat and clean except for one BUT. Although there were signs where it said no food and drinks were allowed, there were families there who ate and drank and left their rubbish behind which was not nice as we notice some food or ice cream would get dropped in the pool. We were surprised that there wasn't anyone around to stop them. A couple of dads even drank beer in the pool which we thought was not appropriate. For a pool area of that size perhaps management could appoint a life guard or a hotel personnel, not only for guest safety but to ensure the pool is not dirtied by food and drinks. It does seem unhygienic and does effect the pleasant atmosphere.
Overall it's a great value place for families or couples set in a gorgeous location.
