The mantra esplanade is in a terrific location right on the esplanade and close to everything. The apartments are your typical one bedroom apartment style with a small kitchenette and laundry.
The front office service was inconsistent, some days we would have really helpful staff and the other days we had staff members That seemed rather disinterested and didn't dally want to be there answering my questions. I also felt the security was very relaxed as we were not checked for our name or photo any time we needed our card rewritten to get in the room.
The bed is very soft, which I found uncomfortable as I have a bad back, but I'm sure this would suit other people. All in all this was an okay stay, it just did not feel quite upto the regular mantra standard.

Roo has a rich flavour similar to steak except it is tougher, while Croc is a very tasty white meat with a clean texture and no fat. It was our first meal in six months that had a white tablecloth, a full set of china crockery and white napkins. Australia is an amazing country with some great wildlife ...
... the Reef but thankfully after the 90 minute trip on the Seastar catamaran it improved with occasional sunshine but more importantly the wind eased off. The first stop was at Michaelmas Cay where I had my first ever scuba dive for about 20 minutes. We were guided down to about 6m holding on to a rope and performed some basic manoeuvres. It was great fun and ended too early so I was itching to have another go. Unfortunately Stella was not able to scuba dive but I joined her ...
... took her down beside the jetty for about another 90mins or so. Half way through tig's last session in the water I took over watching her whole Carleen had a 1hour oil massage. About 5.30 we went down to see if the Travally were feeding again, there were but not to the extent they were the previous nights, but we did see a lemon shark a barracuda some more green ...
