Great hotal - bad booking on the internet- I was told that it was standard doube room with bathroom - when we got to the hotel we were told that the bathroom was not included and would incur another fee upgrade - not happy -
Can highly recommend Mantra Ettalong. Our room was newly painted and all was just lovely. Balcony with a spa with a view to the Hinterland and to the Bay. Couldn't fault it and we are looking at returning in the next month on our way back from the Hunter Valley. A shame the pol area was closed due to maintenance but not a biggy I have a pool at home just a shame we weren't able to look a the view from that area.
At first, the hotel seems a bit strange, but once you have managed to find the reception, it gets better. The room was a bit noisy, but we managed to get changed to a better one. The bed was good and the shower was excellent! The guys at Toto bar were friendly and the music and drinks great. The pizza in La Fiamma is the best we've had in Australia so far!
Booked 2 nights for my 30th wedding anniversary. Only an 90 mins from Sydney but felt we had escaped to another world. Very limited phone reception in the resort which made it all the better. With the accommodation being cabins amongst lush gardens and trees, you don't see or hear anyone else. The only time we saw other guest was in the dinning room. We had most of a meals in the dinning room and the food was fantastic and the wine list extensive. The waitress was wonderful at helping with our choices. The breakfast included is excellent. When we arrived I had inadvertently booked a disable room but the staff went out of their way to change it. The cliental appeared to be mature couples or newly weds. Only time we saw children was at Sunday lunch. The staff at the onsite Spa, were so lovely and caring and enjoyed a wonderful massage. As our car had broken down and was towed away James at the resort very kindly drove us to where the car was being repaired. Most Hotels phone you a taxi.
