Mantra Sierra Grand

I was down on the Gold Coast again last weekend for a friend's birthday. The itinerary for the weekend included Dracula's on Friday night and then the casino on Saturday night and of course yours truly was in charge of booking the accommodation.

We wanted to be within walking distance of both so I checked availability at Meriton (where I stayed last time) but came across a fantastic deal at Mantra Sierra Grand. Part of the Stella Group, they had a special "stay 3 pay 2" deal and this even applied to industry rate!! We stayed in a two bedroom and it worked out to be sensational value.

Sierra Grand is a 4.5 star apartment style resort in Broadbeach and it was the perfect location, just a short walk to Dracula's, Conrad Jupiters and Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. The resort even has a theatre room you can book (for free) to watch DVD's or sporting matches!

The weather wasn't great so the only time I saw the beach was from the balcony of our apartment, so my "tan" will continue to stay a whitey shade of grey.
