Very disappointing stay

We were very happy with our balcony room but upon entering the room we noticed right in the walkway a small square of carpet had been cut out in the floor and replaced with a small square of carpet from inside the wardrobe. Quite tacky. Beds were way too soft. Bathroom large but does not contain an extractor fan so gets a bit stuffy. Staff were very helpful and pleasant in every area. An annoyance of having to get out of the spa every 5 minutes to turn it back on in the pool and spa area. Frustrating. Drove around for 20 minutes that night in the car park trying to get a parking space. Eventually went up to reception and the front staff member gave us her space. Not good. Spaces need to be allotted to each room so you don't have this problem. Rips and stains in the curtains. Buffet breakfast was very disappointing. Very basic selection. Bacon swimming in oil. Certainly not worth the money at $26 per person and then extra for cappuccinos. Extra cost for use of pool towels. While the hotel still has a nice feel about it including the lovely pool areas, owners of the units need to spend some money and do some upgrading. It is not fair if you are still collecting rental money from your unit and not spending money on it for your guests comfort. This hotel is advertised as 4 star but it is not. It is only a 3.

Good Family Trip

The 1 bedroom apartment was very spacious with all the amenities available. However if you are staying with the small kids, you will need to watch out with the coffee table as the glass top is movable therefor easily for the little one to push and break it. Location is not so far from the Paradise beach but abt 10 to 15 mins walk to the restaurant at outside although there is on site restaurant available. Trams are just at the rear door of the apartment.

Relaxing night away

The hotel is great, it has mostly everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The staff were very helpful, even under stress due to schoolies week. We stayed in a 1bdm ocean view apartment and it was lovely - great view and great facilities. The only thing missing was the remote for the tv and there were a few coffee mugs which needed a better clean, but maybe that's due to the previous tenants? I have a personal preference for 24 hour room service (it's all part of the experience of staying in a hotel in my eyes) but it was only available between 5pm-9pm. Either way, it was just what we needed and I wish we could have stayed longer!

Hot water and Customer service helps

Disappointed as have stayed at many Mantra's before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience each time. We checked in to a young man behind the counter who was more interested in what his colleagues were talking about in the back room than attending to us. Went to our room and decided to head down to the bar for a coffee, but it's seasonal pool bar, located inside not outside, so wasn't open and there were no coffee shops or other bars close by. Went back to the room to shower before heading out for dinner, shower was on a hose that kept springing out of the bracket when you turned on the water, once the first person to shower finally got it sorted (took about a minute# the hot water ran out. Called reception and told her, she said she would get maintenance up, when I asked if we could change rooms if there was a problem she rudely told me 'No, we're booked'. Maintenance advised there was nothing he could do as it's a 50ltr system between 2 rooms #4 people# and we would just have to wait until it heated up. Problem was the other room hadn't checked in #and didn't until after 11pm# so this 50ltr tank gave us about 2 mins of hot water max, hubby had a cold shower so we could go out, didn't bother showering in the morning. Buffet breakfast was average, large selection but the hot food was very oily and bacon was like rubber and the premade coffee was cold. Check out wasn't much better it consisted of the receptionist saying 'do you have your key?' she checked the computer 'that's fine, thanks'. No 'how was your stay or have a good day'. Would we stay again? Probably not at this Mantra.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Now that the Trams have started running it is convenient that there is a station right outside the back door of the hotel which will take you all through the Gold Coast. However if you are going to use them find somewhere that you can buy a Go Card for your fares because it will save you nearly $3 each time you get on.

Hotel has a nice ambience, set with South American theme

Staff were friendly, they gave a complimentary car park space which increased the value for money.

Great holiday location

Location was great , food was great but bad experience with checking out, our $200.00 supposedly frozen holding deposit was taken out of our credit card immediately and 7 days later we still have not received it back into our account even with numerous phone calls and emails to the duty manager who had promised to have this rectified within 24 hrs . We were also given the incorrect receipt , the receipt we were given was for a person in SA this has left us thinking we will not go back which is a shame because everything else about the SunCity Mantra was good. Having to keep chasing up the credit on a daily basis and not getting anywhere has been very frustrating and annoying.

Family getaway

I stayed in room 701 the dryer wasn't working tv remote needed battery changing the shower handle that held the shower head up was loose so you couldn't keep the shower up and when you had a shower all the water came out of the laundry floor and flooded every time you had a shower. There was no toilet lock on the door so everyone felt like someone was going to come in no privacy. The curtain had a big rip in it when you closed it and the carpet was filthy and run down outside the bathroom. And last the water from the tap tasted really yuk everyone couldn't drink it. Yeh so this room needs a lot of attention to bring it up to human hygiene.

Great short stay spot

A lovely hotel, very spacious, well laid out room that was very clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. Pool was fantastic. Not in the heart of surfers, a good 20 minute walk to the "action", but a very nice place to stay for a short break!
