We recently stayed at this resort, in a two bedroomed apartment on the ground floor. The resort is perfectly placed on the main strip at Palm Cove, with the ocean right across the road and restaurants very close by. The resort also had a nice pool. We chose to stay at the Mantra as we have stayed in many others around the country, and have always found them to be comfortable and well maintained. The staff at the resort were wonderful, very friendly and very helpful. The apartment was what we expected when it came to comfort, the beds were very comfortable, the furniture was basic, but serviceable. The kitchen was well equipped with microwave, dishwasher, oven, and included washing machine and tumble dryer in a laundry cupboard. What let the apartment down was its attention to detail when it came to its cleanliness. In general terms it was clean, but there were many things that could have been improved on. Both the showers needed anti-mould treatments, the bathroom we used had had its bathroom ceiling patched but not repainted. The fans in the rooms needed cleaning, especially the one in the lounge room. The fan in our room was noisy, so we could not have it on during the night. The doors in the apartment looked like they had been mouldy at some time and had been repainted but it had been done very badly. The microwave was dirty inside.
Whilst we chose to stay on the ground floor, we found it very hot at night, as we could not leave any windows open. There were no security fly screens on the doors or windows. Our room did have louvres but we would not keep those open at night. It would have been nice to have had some fresh air during the night. We were also very surprised to have to pay for the use of the safe, something we have never had to do anywhere else.
Overall our stay here was very enjoyable and comfortable, but we felt that improvements could be made to the apartments presentation.
