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.
The hotel is in a great location, checking in and out was easy.
The rooms look a little dated but are comfortable enough. The TV didn't work even after the attempts of 3 different people and 3 different calls to reception. It was written off as being because of the wind which seems unrealistic and was painful because I was staying there alone.
The facilities around the hotel are great with plenty of food and drink options available in the complex.
The walls are a bit thin and could clearly hear the people in the room next door....
*For these trips, trip savings is at least equal to the cost of the flight or hotel if booked separately. Note: For trips including flights, you will be charged by the airline for the flight, but your savings on the trip will equal the cost of the flight.
