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.

... anything free and tasty! Although the trip was good, I wouldn't necessarily go with Compass again (they are more of a budget tour operator) and I'd definitely wait a couple of months until the middle of summer to ensure good weather, but nonetheless still a fun day. Reef trip over and we were back to the hostel for dinner and a team night out, all after being persuaded into buying tickets onto a booze-bus bar crawl for the following evening. Table dancing (and falling ...
