Could be lot better. No service to the rooms. Change of towels and room service only offered after a 5 day stay. Had to wash our own towels. Due to nearby construction work the location of the room was very noisy.Also the hotel was being updated in the reception area.

Pros: Location is fantastic, walking to lagoon, children's playground, restaurants, night markets. Rooms are large and comfortable. The spa bath in the 2 bedroom apartment is glorious. Cons: There was a fair amount of construction going on in the building and surrounds.

Three Bedroom Ocean View Apartment - Mantra Esplanade
Is early Check in Available as my flight lands at 10am.
Yes you can as long as you get in touch by email or phone and explain the situation. Given it takes approximately nearly an hour from the time the plane is due to land and the time you get to the Hotel you should be OK. Just get in touch with them.
