Great location

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 May 2024via mobile
Good location. Stayed in a court yard apartment. Bedrooms on the small size as was the ensuite. Interior a little dated. Good size kitchen , with ample appliances, plates, cutlery etc. court yard nice though spa very exposed to balconies above . Air con worked well but didn’t really reach the master bedroom and no ceiling fans. TV temperamental and glitchy. We stayed for 6 nights and no towel or linen change. Missed having a coffee machine. Staff pleasant and helpful and lots of cafe’s and other shops all within walking distance, as was Coles. If you want the hustle and bustle on your door step with lots of walk paths along the beach, this is a good place .
Date of stay: April 2024
Room Tip: Ask for an apartment not on floor 2- noisy when trades are working on the pool
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Great location being right across from beach with nice view and plenty of nearby dining options. short walk to Coles. Spacious 2 bed apartment with private heated spa on our deck was great. Prefer if spa was more secluded from neighbours view. We stayed 3 nights and would have expected daily towel and bed service but did not receive any. Nonetheless the reception service was very friendly.

Room tip: Rooms with private outdoor heated spa..the spa is not very secluded from neighbours view but still good. Rooms are not serviced daily.

Perfect location opposite Mooloolaba beach and on The Esplanade above cafes, bars and shops. Lots of activity close at hand and boardwalks along the beach. Walkers, runners, surfers and cyclists start their fitness early in the morning. Some cafes open from 5:30am. Mantra Zanzibar has an outdoor pool and a gym. I had a 3 bedroom apartment which had a laundry and kitchen, 2 bathrooms, one with a spa, open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The balcony is huge, overlooking the beach area, as well as being private and wrapping around the sides, giving each bedroom access. There is also a private jacuzzi on the balcony (courtyard) and bbq, table and chairs and sun lounges. A family or group could have a great holiday here, I had it to myself. There are no fly screens so unfortunately could not leave doors or windows open at night. Birds, lorikeets I believe, roost in the large trees lining the esplanade, in the late afternoon and are rather loud. I could hear them during the night. They also awaken at about 4am and set off in flocks. Quite spectacular to see and hear, but does not lead to a peaceful stay, especially if you are not a morning person. I had a fabulous stay here. I felt safe and secure and the staff were friendly and helpful. A little expensive due to NSW school holiday time, I guess, but supplied what I needed. Could do with some TLC but a quite okay place to holiday. Mooloolaba had an Anzac Day dawn service on the beach, which made for a new experience for me.

Room tip: Be aware of birds (lorikeets) roosting in large trees at front of hotel. They arrive at dusk and leave at dawn, causing quite a ruckus!

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment for a girls weekend. It was very spacious, having a whole dedicated lounge space, dining, kitchen plus the balcony was great. We were directly across from the beach and in easy walking distance from anything we needed. Would definitely recommend.

What a wonderful holiday we had. Two weeks of listening to the waves at the beach, looking at the beach and walking directly across the road to the beach for walks and swims.

The view from our lounge room, balcony and bedroom was uninterrupted and absolutely sensational. Mantra Zanziba is so close to the ocean that we felt like we were over the water. I loved sitting at the outside chairs and table for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. The views were stunning, the sound of the waves crashing were so relaxing and the breezes magnificent.

Our kitchen was well equipped, our King sized bed and lounges comfortable and our recently renovated bathroom was spacious with a lovely large overhead showerhead.
Mantra Zanzibar is wonderfully located in Mooloolaba. We parked our car underneath and walked to everything. Coles is just down the road and there is such wonderful choices for dining out. We enjoyed Mexican at Montezumas, Asian at Rice Boi, Vietnamese at Pho Bui Vietnamese and pub meals at Dirty Moes and The Beach Bar and Grill (located upstairs with views over the beach). Just behind Mantra Zanzibar is The Columbian Coffee Co - our favourite cafe for Coffee. (As a coffee snob I give this cafe 5 stars for its coffee. I even bought some beans to take home to keep the Mooloolaba experience lasting a little bit longer.)

We felt so relaxed after two weeks staying in our lovely apartment and experiencing all that Mooloolaba has to offer.

Room tip: Book well in advance to take advantage of pricing and to be able to book an apartment that meets your needs and furniture arrangements.
