We stayed at Mantra Amphora during the last leg of our 3 week honeymoon to Australia. We were greeted by Pam at reception who checked us in and proved to be very helpful to us throughout our stay. We had booked a hotel style room, which was of a good size and nicely furnished. I had requested at the time of booking through my agent a pool or ocean view room and found on arrival that we had been allocated a car park/rainforest view from our balcony, but this was fine and as we discovered quieter than being pool side. The complex comprises of mainly apartments and is self catering throughout, so no bar or restaurant on site but frankly in Palm Cove this isnt needed. The only moan that I have is that whilst I knew before we booked that Mantra don't provide housekeeping services (if booked for 8 days or more you get one service) which is understandable for apartment guests, however in a hotel room it would be difficult to store mops for bathroom floor cleaning etc so this was small gripe during our stay. In fairness we could have paid for additional cleaning had we wanted to spend money on it! The pool area is wonderful and a particular attraction for us at this hotel. The pool is very large with a separate jacuzzi at the deep end. We had a few pool days which were thoroughly enjoyable and whilst this is primarily a family accomodation, the childrens area of the pool was at the bottom meaning a quiet end of pool for relaxing adults. Vivo Bar & Grill is at the end of the complex on the Esplande and we used this restaurant for breakfast, snacks and cocktails throughout the day and had our last evening meal there, highly recommended and nice to have on the door step! We booked a number of trips and tours which hotel reception booked for us and added the cost to our room bill, a very easy process. All staff we encountered were very helpful and again
Pam was notably very pleasant. In room wifi is available at a cost of $15 for 2 hours (which you can log in or log out of during your stay, rolling your time over), which I found expensive but all accomodations in Palm Cove will charge. The hotel is perfectly located at the front of the esplanade, literally across the road from the gorgeous beach and everything is easibly accessible. Overall a lovely accomodation in prime location. More than happy to recommend.
