Mantra Sun City

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

More like a 2-star motel. Mould in the bathroom. One crappy chair on the balcony. Uncomfortable bed and dirty, stained bedding. No artwork on the walls. Not at all like advertised on the website or booking sites. Buyer beware. They are selling what look like 2-star 20 year old rooms, at current 5-star market prices. Breakfast buffet was awful. Pancake machine broke, coffee was terrible,. Couldn't buy a barista coffee from the attached bar, nor a soft drink and none of the staff seemed to care.

We were looking for somewhere that was central and convenient and this place ticked all our boxes, children loved the big swimming pool outside but it was freezing so lucky there was an indoor semi-warm pool, my husband and I loved the little rock spa pool too. The staff were ultra helpful and friendly and our 2 bedroom apartment was just amazing infact we did not want to leave. Close to trains, shops, beach could not ask for more. Also great underground parking.

Have stayed here many times in the last 15 years and it is always good. Great position with view of the beach, short walk to Caville Ave or just 2 stops on the light rail which stops directly outside the hotel. The pools and spa are great also with plenty of sun lounges. Unfortunately the poolside bar was closed.

Went to see the Commonwealth games. Love the tram line at the rear of hotel. Great location. 2 stops from Cavill avenue. Stunning views. Great artistic themed hotel in egyptian decor . Friendly helpful staff.

Made the last minute decision to pop down the coast with my little boy to attend the Commonwealth Games and ended up booking at Mantra Sun City. It was incredible from the moment we arrived with being able to do an early check in at no additional charge staff were all very helpful and super friendly. Room was perfect for myself and my 7yr old boy. Location was great not too close to the hassle and bussle of surfers but good walking distance for us to go and experience the festival events. Our trip into the atheltics after a good night sleep was made easy with the tram right outside to take us into Broadbeach for the connecting shuttle bus. I didn't have to worry about the car as we were able to leave this securely parked in the Mantra carpark until we got back from our day out even after we had checked out. Everything was fantastic, pool with slides, location, food at Kostal Kitchen, our room and mostly the service. Thank you Mantra for making our stay one to remember!!!

Staff very helpful and friendly, lifeguard's on duty in the pool area, very caring and friendly absolutely great with the kids. Great location with the tram stop right out the front door. will stay there again

We stayed for the commonwealth games so it was a great location for us. It has a light rail stop right outside that can get you to all the hot spots and it’s very close to bus shuttles. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was a bit outdated but very comfortable and had everything we needed.

We recently stayed in a 1 bedroom, ocean-facing apartment for one night's stay. The apartment was spacious and clean, with a great view of the ocean and surf. Check-in and Check-out were convenient. While we did not use it, the complex has a great pool and water slides. Rooms were lovely and quiet. We will consider using again.

All in all, the Mantra is a beautiful location. The outdoor pool area was divine and all the decor in the entrance way was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the location was ideal. However, our room (709) had problems that my partner has previously mentioned but that we feel are not being adequately considered. The air conditioner in the bedroom did not turn on, which we believe may be associated with the air conditioner in the lounge room (on the same internal wall) leaking water into the wall cavity. This water was then dripping out of cracks in the wall and seeping up from the floor boards between the bedroom and lounge with every step (see picture, that was one step!). The water was brown as can be seen on the white towels, and musty smelling. The damage to the floor and internal wall caused by continuous water was obvious, once we knew to look. Maintenance were called and did come in on Sunday, commented "this has happened before in this room, nothing will happen until tomorrow" and then left after checking in the cubicle for the air conditioner overflow. No further action was taken by maintenance to resolve the issue. We have I think valid concerns for the safety of the room, and cannot say nothing in case someone is injured by slipping on the always-wet floor or worse. I hope that by now this issue has been investigated by the team and resolved. We look forward to visiting another Mantra establishment in the future, and hopefully leaving a much more positive review.

Iv stayed here a few times my dad actually knows a guy who owns a unit at the Mantra Sun City, there has been a few occasion where his let us stay when his holidaying away , the view from his balcony looking over the city and
