I stayed at the Mantra apartments for 4 nights and although I hardly stayed indoors I had a wonderful experience. I had tours booked for most of my stay and it was great to know that the pick was available from this hotel.
I hired a car from Cairns airport and drove to Palm Cove, it's such a pleasant drive and there is parking available at the hotel too. On the first day I dropped my luggage at the hotel and the checkin was very quick and easy, although finding my room was a little difficult! Once I dropped my luggage, I drove to Port Douglas, which again was a lovely scenic drive. Palm cove is located in between Cairns and Port Douglas, I highly recommend you stop at the beaches in between and have a walk on the sand. It's beautiful.
There is a lovely cafe at the end of the Esplanade, called 'The Chill Cafe' that made one of the best flat whites I have tasted, not forgetting the coffee art the owner designed (photo).
The waters had jelly fish so I didn't go in much, other than dipping my feet at the beach. The beach is beautiful however.
Checkout was simple, just handed in the key. I didn't need to contact the hotel staff during my stay and nor did I use any of the other facilities, such as the spa and the pool.
Overall, a great place to stop for a short or long break in Palm Cove, which doesn't cost an arm and a leg!
