Apartments near vibrant Espanade

Posted Oct 16, 2014
Pros: Location is excellent and central. The apartment seemed nice and clean, the beds and sofas were comfortable
Cons: The rooms need coffee plungers and decent free wi-fi. Be a bit more generous - for example a mini bottle of dishwash liquid, rather than a tiny sachet
Location: Location very good - near the port, supermarket, cafes, shops, beachfront
Mantra Esplanade was quite good, but there was a feeling that they were trying to economise. It is unusual nowadays not to have a coffee plunger and a sachet or two of ground coffee. Sooner or later, the Mantra needs to catch up and provide wi fi free (within reasonable limits) Going to the foyer is not very convenient. Having a dual key 2 bedroom apartment is not ideal. It is much better to have a 2 bedroom apartment. It felt as if you had to use your keycard everywhere you went in the building - maybe they have had trespassers who knows? Apart from those issues, the apartment was comfortable, clean and well located. The pool and gym area were good as well. In terms of apartments I have stayed in, this would rank in the middle.

Very well positioned, very friendly staff

Posted Oct 5, 2014
Pros: Staff, apartment and location all excellent
Cons: The only small thing would be to consider heating at least the Spa
Location: Great restaurants & Casino all in walking distance. The boardwalk is a fantastic walk day or night. Jetty 5min walk for cruises & island adventures
Welcomed by very friendly staff and during the stay they were always helpful with inquiries. Room had a great view over lagoon and park lands. Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment that was clean and very well presented. Could not hear noise from other apartments except for the odd closing door this was great. Great to spend time in on the balcony just watching the day or the night, some spectacular sun rises visible from the balcony. Would highly recommend staying there as the next time I go I will stay there. Very good overall package and extremely well positioned. Fantastic staff on the front counter 24/7.
