We've just departed after 3 nights at the Mantra. It's a modest property (in style not stature) that sits prominently on Williams Esplanade. It doesn't promise to be anything it isn't and I found that really refreshing. Large, modern, well-equipped rooms and very good and consistent service from all those we came in contact with, make it worthy of its 4-star rating.
On booking I advised the property that it was my partner's birthday during our stay. On check-in we were upgraded to a 1 bedroom beachfront apartment (from an ocean view hotel room) and received a small gift of fresh coffee. The apartment was enormous and these really are worth the extra money. The hotel rooms appear to be the second bedroom to the dual key apartments, generally with a side ocean view.
When selecting or requesting a room, ground floor front is where you want to be. The property is 3 storey, without lifts.
The restaurant that sits within the grounds of the property is a Palm Cove institution, and one of the best if not the best on the strip. Best for breakfast, happy hour and tapas. Mind you, dinner was also amazing.
The mantra is a great value place I'd happily stay at again.
