We stayed here for 8 nights with 2 adults 2 children in a 2 bedroom apartment. So comfortable & roomy. Swimming Pool area is great for kids and adults who love to have fun or relax in the spa. Fantastic location. Close to transport and Cavill Mall. Would definitely come back again

Me and my friends were recommended this hotel for a fun, getaway destination in Surfers Paradise, which is exactly what this hotel is! Impressive hotel with an amazing pool area which was definitely our favourite aspect. The location was perfect for quick supermarket/dinner runs as it was close to the main shopping area as well as being a prime location...

Away from the hussle and bussle of the Caville St precinct. Excellent transport options of tram (2 stations) in to Caville Street or buses to theme parks just across the road from Sun City. Spacious rooms.

My partner and I had a 7 night stay at Mantra Sun City in the heart of surfers paradise and it was a highlight of our holiday. Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, restaurant food was delicious and an incredible ocean and hotel pool view from our balcony, what more could you ask for and all for a reasonable price.

I chose to take my young family to Mantra Sun City because of the huge exciting pools with water slides, two spas and ease of access to the beach and tram to/from everywhere on the coast. As a Pokemon Go loving family, the three Pokestops weren't to be sneered at either. We had a complimentary upgrade from the 2 bedroom...
