    Beautiful place”

    Unfortunately I had a bad experience here with booking a king bed and arriving to check in after hours to find 2 single beds which was really disappointing due to booking a king room, but looking forward to a night in a nice room with hubby at the end of a work trip. As it was after reception hours they couldn't do anything about the bed situation, so I felt extremely let down, especially as I'd had a great experience at Mantra in Airlie Beach just 2 nights prior. The bathroom floor also had a number of long black hairs, meaning the floors hadn't been cleaned too well. Reception did apologize in the morning as the housekeeping notes did say king bed, but unfortunately as it was only a one night stay, I wouldn't be quick to come back here.

    Nice and pleasant hotel”

    Nice clean hotel that overlooks a beautiful pool and gardens. The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of signage where reception is located. Reception is located at the rear of the hotel that requires one to travel down two streets to gain access to the rear of the hotel. However, for travellers that are not familiar with the area more signage is recommended. I will return to Mantra Amphora Hotel.

    Paradise,,,Mostly!”

    Palm Cove is such a gorgeous place, it's hard to go wrong. Warm ocean breezes, lots of winter sunshine, palm trees, in a relaxed and little upmarket vibe. The Mantra is a large resort built around a brilliant pool (especially if you have young children). The apartment room we had was large and comfortable. The downside is that Mantra seem a little stingy with no room service or cleaning for a week. Super thin toilet paper You have to ask for towels, and they leave you to put up your own cot. We had a top floor room with lots of walking up stairs and it took a while to work out how to get where on the property. The rooms at the front would be great if you could get one. Overall we had a fabulous time here.

    Amazing ”

    Such a wonderful hotel! Really clean and new. It was right across the street from the beach. The concierge helped us book a taxi on our departure. When we left at 6:30am I realized I locked my phone in the room and the reception was closed. They had a phone on the outside of the reception and I told the lady that I left my phone and she called the manager who came out within 5 minutes to let me back inside. Such wonderful service!!!

    Great but no room service”

    It was a wonderful stay. Nice view of the pool and really close proximity to the beach. Had lots of great restaurants around but what we loved was visiting the ice cream shops in the evening after dinner. Has a bus that goes to Cains city in about an hour but we decided to rent a car so we could visit the waterfalls and rainforests. However, I found it strange that there was no room service or house keeping. One of the luxuries of going on a holiday is that you don't have to do anything! It kind of sucked that I had to make my bed each morning, get my towels changed over at reception and to get more necessities like sugar and salt.. what disappointment me was the lack of cleanliness in the kitchenette. Pans and glass wear were a bit disgusting but what's worse was that the washing machine reeked!!

    Location, spa, value for money

    Will definitely stay again, had everything we needed. Can't beat the location on the main street of palm cove, a few steps from the beach. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, view of the pool was lovely. There was a spa/bathtub in the room, a balcony, quiet airconditioner and the furniture was tasteful and modern. Also appreciated the great selection of quality teas and coffee that were complimentary in the mini bar!

    prime location”

    location was great, vivo restaurant was excellent

    Check in didn't take long at all, the girl was friendly. The hotel spa room is pretty small but comfortable. Previous guest had left a blouse in the cupboard so this wasn't checked properly by housekeeping. When I had a shower I noticed that the previous guest also left their toothbrush on top of the shower door. Housekeeping definitely didn't do a good job. Then I noticed cup/milk stain on the bench. Whatever. The toilet seat had a stain on it so I had to sanitize it myself!! So I called reception to let them know that I didn't feel my room was cleaned properly and asked to be moved else where. When she told me the location of the new room, I declined and decided to stay in my original room. Then the bathroom light went out, but the maintenance guy came really quickly and replaced the tranformer promptly. The pool is good, big enough for kids and adults and there are plenty of chairs. The restaurant downstairs (vivo) was good. It was nice, clean, fast and friendly. The location of this hotel is perfect. Right on the esplanade and shops and restaurants are within minutes on foot. And the beach!!! It's just across the road! If you bring your own car, there's a free carpark at the hotel and you just park it at an empty space. It's not undercover though. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The only thing that let it down was housekeeping.

    Location, location, location

    Our stay was very enjoyable except for the lack of privacy in our unit. There were only sheer curtains on main balcony window and diners at the restaurant and passers by looked directly into the unit. Not so bad during the day but at night with the lights on, no privacy unless you turned lights out!! That was the only negative because the location was perfect and the grounds were immaculately kept. Some great restaurants to be found along the waterfront and a fantastic deli just around the corner from the Resort. Need a relaxing holiday, this is the place to be.

    Above average”

    It was one of the noisiest places we have stayed on our travels. It isn't really a Hotel and definitely not a Resort, it is an Apartment Block with all the Apartments placed around a fairly nice pool area. There is absolutely no privacy unless you go inside your room and pull the curtains shut. They let any man & his Dog inside the grounds to use the Pool, which makes it even more noisier, more crowded with no place for paying guests to sit! They do not offer any services at all...Apartments are not serviced unless you are there for at least 8 nights, there isn't a Bar, no Restaurant, no activities....NADA! We would not recommend this 'Hotel' to anybody other than families with children under the age of 8!
