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.

Just had our fifth stay at mandolin and it was perfect. We were given an upgrade to the twelfth floor and the room and the view was fantastic. Will definitely stay in the same room again. Big shout to Tina,Kerrie Michael and Colin. Couldn’t recommend mandolin enough to anybody. The facilities are so well looked after and everyone is up for a chat. Can’t wait to see you guys again.

Room 35, I booked a family holiday to give us a break during the school holidays, booked a "Superior Room" which was meant to be renovated & well... a Superior apartment, sadly I was shocked when we walked into the room, it was so old & run down the kitchen looked like it was from the 70's or 80's, furniture was old & couches were peeling, kitchen window was locked so we couldnt even open it for fresh air, there were spiders & cobwebs in corners of the walls, ants were a massive problem they were everywhere on the dining table, kitchen bench & bathroom sinks, All ceiling fans were rusted & hanging a little from the wall, the main bedroom Fan was so loud we couldnt even have it on & the room was very hot at night so we needed it. There was no pantry space for food & we had no hot water nearly every night, so couldnt enjoy a hot shower after a long day out. I know these apartments are individually owned so this will in no way stop us from returning as we have stayed in other beautiful apartments at mandolin previously & staff are always amazing, we will just be sure not to be put in this apartment again. Managment was amazing with our hot water issue came up strait away to tell us why we didnt have much, but in a family apartment there needs to be more then 10mins worth of hot water in a 24hr period. It took a couple of mins for it to even warm up. Something the owner of this particular apartment should look into as well as a good renovation & better cleaners, as cutlery was not very clean, plates & dishes had bits of food on them, even the railing on the balcony & chunks of food stuck to it that i can only assume came from the people before us, but none the less, the cleaners need to do a better job. The price for this room alone is not worth what the room is like & offers. The View from this apartment is absolutely beautiful in the day & night.

I was given a quote by Colin (staff member at the hotel) and then when he took my credit card details and sent me through confirmation he charged me $910 dollars above quoted price. When I phoned to question it he said he didn’t recall giving me that amount even though it was confirmed both the nightly tariff and full stay tariff over the phone. I am disgusted and as someone in the industry I will not be recommending anyone nor will I risk booking anyone into this hotel. Honesty and reliability is a huge thing in any business but with the current climate it is huge and a factor I won’t compromise on.

Reception made an error with our booking which meant that although we had paid for our accommodation over 2 months earlier, we did not a have a room. Receptionist admitted to making the error. Only room available was penthouse which they expected us to pay another $1300 on top even though they made the mistake. We offered to pay $800 as a gesture of goodwill which was not accepted. Manager was not interested in making amends for the error. We have stayed at Mandolin 5-6 times previously-clearly loyalty means nothing. Manager more concerned with money than ensuring loyal guests get the holiday they paid for. Landlords at Mandolin should be upset with the way we have been mistreated. Two very sad children (and their angry parents) sitting at home tonight trying to find last minute accommodation at a much higher rate when they should be on the first night of their annual holiday. Thank you for making the beginning of our holiday stressful and showing no concern for your previously loyal guests or interest in fixing your error. Clearly, we won’t be staying again.

Stayed a few nights here in October 2021. The room was comfortable, clean and reasonably priced. We had a lovely ocean view with balcony. The staff were so nice and helpful! Tina was excellent with information about our accommodation as well as local knowledge on great places to eat. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.

Made a booking for the weekend for partners big 50th Booking was easy,ocean view one bed apartment,not a bad price. Check in was easy,lovely gentleman at reception explained everything Tina the night manager was friendly We had the best view from the apartment of Alex beach,was stunning sunsets and beach life As for the apartment and halls,they need a paint job,new carpet,outside our door was a big bleach mark The place is looking old ,inside the rooms are a modern kitchen,we cleaned up because the cups in the cupboard were coffee stained,walls had black marks on them,one shower ceiling was peeling and the shower dripped,ice tray was empty in the freezer. The curtains were old ,hokey and mouldy. Just little things that would make the apartment a bit more appealing Everything was provided though,cleaning stuff,brooms,iron,pillows,books,games etc The rubbish Shute was so small can only put a couple of bits down it at a time so you had to take 5 min just to put your rubbish out A nice pool,mini golf,bbq areas are provided and looked clean. You can book a car space also as we did. I’d stay again because of the view Plenty of food places nearby. Building Foyer is lovely and clean and bright $560 for 2 nights

100% would NOT recommend Mandolin Resort at Alexandra Headlands. Second night there, we came into our bedroom to find thousands of flying insects on our bed. Completely uninhabitable. Not ones to make a fuss, we simply slept in the second bedroom with single beds. After check out we received a phone call from Management Michael to say that we would be charged a $90 cleaning fee because we used the second bedroom when we had only booked a one bedroom apartment. Michael pretty much accused us of lying about the bug infestation and said that we should have called out management at midnight to verify the bug issue. Michael was extremely condescending and rude. What a dismal end to an otherwise nice weekend away. Thank you Michael, thank you for dismissing our complaint, for making us feel like liars and for showcasing the most disgusting customer service I have ever experienced. Shame Mandolin, shame.
