The reception staff were excellent, considering the lack of staff due to COVID19. There was a letter in our room explaining they would not be making up our room during our 2 night stay and there was not enough linen to go around and we found there was no top sheet on our bed. We also noticed some broken and damaged light fittings in the hallway near the lift, and the Spa was out of service with a sign saying "this is not a Spa" but it looked like it used to be a spa with seats around the side and water jet fittings around the side.

Our families stayed for a week. The rooms were comfortable, staff very friendly and helpful, great location to access supermarkets and restaurants, lovely views from the balcony, lovely pool which was always clean and well kept. Our only disappointment was the lack of sufficient bedding. We were informed a few days into our stay that there were linen issues. We heard of other guests that were not provided with one towel per guest so we were very fortunate to have both a bath and pool towel each.

Everything perfect except for no flexibility in regard to moving booking one day forward which should have been free but cost us nearly $500 to do that. We love staying at the Mantra but thought that was unethical. We also heard many similar stories to ours asking that total bookings be cancelled & re-booked at the customers expense. In our case, we had no choice but to accept Mantra’s terms. No top sheets on beds, no complaints from us. Paying the inflated price for changing booking by one night & getting the wrong bed configuration & loosing our ocean view, again no complaints from us. So come on Mantra, please check what we have been charged & do the right thing.
Comfortable, great location, friendly, helpful staff.

We had a great few days at the Mantra. The air con needs attention as the unit was freezing but we left it off for 2 days and it was alright then. Great staff.
The worst international or National hotel we have ever stayed in.

The hotel is tired and old. Repairs and maintenance have not been done since the hotel was built 30 years ago. Only one sheet per bed. Bookings of less than 7 days will incur a housekeeping fee if you want your room cleaned. Only 1 wine glass and 1 drinking glass. No inside table. No lift security. Bathroom exhaust fan clogged with dust particles and not working. This was uncomfortable waiting for the removal of toilet odours. Mildrew on balcony walls and paint peeling off balcony walls. Balcony furniture falling apart. No restaurant for AccorPlus members. Absolutely appalling accommodation. Photos were sent to the Mantra Group and Accor Plus.
