Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Seamless check in/out process, staff was very helpful and accommodating. Christine* in particular, she answered all our questions and provided heaps of useful information. Location is immaculate, close to everything you need and the hotel itself is a modern and luxe property. Will definitely be staying again in future.

Mantra Legends Overpriced for room quality and cleanliness. Found a dead Flea in bed first night. Paid for deluxe studio. The room was nothing like the pictures. VERY outdated and small. More what you’d expect from a 2 star motel. Outdated decor and furniture with damage. Furniture was worn, chipped and damaged. $22 per night parking. $200 deposit on arrival also not advertised. Tiny corner balcony with weeds growing room enough for 2 ppl max. They stuck a concrete wall between a larger room so they can make two smaller rooms. Wifi very poor and intermittent. Outdated appliances you could barely read the writing on to operate. Windows were filthy to the balcony. Noticed this even worse around the pool glass, in particular the spa. Heavy dust everywhere, especially in AC vent. Tiny bar fridge that barely keeps anything cool. Had to throw out food after a couple days as wasn’t chilled enough and went off. Mantra, if people have this issue trying to store chicken or seafood for example and they eat it, I hope you are accepting of the fact you could potentially be liable for killing people by not providing a fridge that stores food at appropriate temperatures. As soon as you open the worn wooden door that exposes the fridge you could feel the heat emanated externally from the top below where the stove is built in. I mean everything else is outdated in this room, wouldn’t be surprised if the fridge needs to go to. Limited sun loungers around the pool for the amount of people present. One of the only hotels around I’m aware of still allow glass from the bar. A number of people leaving empty glasses lying around the pool area and lots of children without parental supervision, jumping on people heads and taking over the pool. Floor around the pool super mouldy. Didn’t see a single staff member in the pool area tidying or collecting glasses the whole 5 days I was there. Walls are paper thin. Me and my son were woken by the family next to us in room 1105 almost every night at 6am. They were either slamming the food or allowing the door to slam loudly shut. Our door personally didn’t do this as the mechanism allowed it to self shut more gently. Maybe a sign some of the doors are wearing away and require maintenance too. In comparison, we stayed at the Marrakesh Apartments a few minutes closer to Broadbeach for the first half of our 10 day stay at the Gold Coast. Fully functional spacious apartment with washing machine, dryer, big lounge area, marble kitchen countertop, large (cold) fridge, x3 balconies with the main being huge housing table chairs and sun loungers, also with views of the beach same distance from the shore as Mantra Legends if not closer. All this for $1500 for 5 nights during Christmas/NY season. Then the disappointment when you arrive to the tiny disgusting outdated rooms at the Mantra Legends costing over $2000 for the same 5 nights. What a joke! If you are going to charge this price, make the effort to update the rooms and ensure they are clean, safe and functional. Due to Health and Safety issues identified in terms of fridge temperature compliance, overall cleanliness and condition of accommodation in terms of health, hygiene and safety, I will be contacting the local council and Department of Health. As someone who works in the health care industry, the fridge issue on appropriate food storage is a major concern for guest safety. We had to throw out purchased food and even milk that wasn’t kept cold enough. Guests have a right to access safe and appropriate storage for their food during their stay. I’m sure the manager will come back and say they checked the fridge and it was cold enough or can’t find evidence of my booking Jan 2024 LOL but unless they try and store/consume food in that fridge within 5 days, the opinion is irrelevant. I’ve been to the Gold Coast many times. This was by far the worst accomodation option. I’d rather stay in some of the more acceptable 2 star resorts again than here. NEVER AGAIN!

Some of the staff were incredibly rude for one instance there was a stuff member mopping. We walked past in a towel (completely dry) she screamed GREATT at us which we thought was extremely rude to take out frustration at us when we were not the ones leaving a puddle on the floor. Makes me wonder what she said to the people who did. As someone who works in customer service even if you are frustrated you don’t speak to customers like that. The rooms could be more clean too seems they just make the bed and change the towels between guests and don’t actually clean the benches or walls if dirty.

We stayed in one of the Accor Vacation Apartments 601. This apartment is refurbished and is lovely and modern. As a silver accor limitless member I received tywo complimentary drink vouchers I used at the their bar called Tales Cafe and Bar. This is a spacious one bedroom apartment with 2-burner cooktop, full fridge, mini-dishwasher and a seperate bathtab and shower. There are two balconies with one facing Gold Coast Highway annd the other the swimming pool. There was a tv in each room. I love their huge pool and spent a lot of time there during my 5-night stay. Loction is great as its a short walk to thehub of Surfers Cavill Av and surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants. I really enjoyed my stay here.

Am an Accor ALL Member of some years and stayed at a few hotels around-the-world over the same time. I am a budget conscious traveller and always pay in advance to avoid any nasty issues; well, so l thought? I arrive on Sunday and am greeted with a demand for a $200 Bond; just in case. Old days it was a 1 or 5 cent swipe to capture your C.C. details only. Told it will be returned to me within 3 to 10 days of checking-out! My money taken in an instant and l have to wait potentially over a week to get it back. It's a downright inconvenience and an insult. What happens when l travel onwards and don't have access to that $200? The Bond issue put a sour taste in my mouth with the ongoing thought of accidently spilling something or otherwise playing in my head. So much for enjoying one's stay. It's now Wednesday and still not one cent returned.

Though only two blocks further away from the Novotel on Cavil Avenue, the Mantra Legends was almost 25% cheaper and sure the Novotel has been done up, but it would be unfair to say the Mantra is rundown. I booked 4 rooms for the extended family and the review reflects this. Some points; • No cover or shade what-so-ever on the pool from 10am to 5pm • Happy Hour between 4-6pm was okay but drink size seemed to reflect price. • Carpark worth any $20 fee per day • 3min walk to the beach and 5 min walk to Cavil Avenue • WiFi inconsistent, higher it goes up the worse it seemed to get. So kids often went to lobby to play Roblox. • Good shower pressure • Love Urban Skin care toiletries, but mounted on wall. Staff were amazing and very helpful and kind. Nothing bad to say about any individual from reception to the bar to the dining room for breakfast. But there were consistent long waits at reception and often for the lifts (3). That said, buffet breakfast was never packed and food was always well stocked. Quality was right on average. By biggest beef with the hotel is because it’s a little cheaper the type of clienteles is the type who don’t wait for people to exit the left before entering, walk naked dripping wet from the pool through the lobby, in the lift and to their room. Or yell and scream on the phone during breakfast, including having domestics at the top of their voices during breakfast or at the bar, honestly some guests dressed and lied on furniture like a homeless person. It was like they forgot they are guests and as just because they are on holidays and paid to stay, they forget to be kind, forget human decency and be respectful of others. If you are on a family budget, Mantra Legends is the perfect place to stay on the Goldie, close to everything, decent sized rooms, loads of restaurants nearby. But can get a bit seedy in the evening and if you have the money and everyone has decent mobility, I would look to go elsewhere. Staff were amazing in ‘trying’ conditions.

A bit of an older style hotel but very good views and good location. Staff are friendly and attentive. Good value for money. One block from beach and easy walk to Cavill Ave. There is an overpriced IGA downstairs but if you walk over one more Street, there is a Woolworths in paradise centre
