Stayed in twin room for 3 nights. Good room. Enough space. Tv DVD. Fridge. Kettle. New bathroom (large). Balcony overlooking lap pool. Can walk to town in 10-15min (unlike many other hotels). Only 1 block to beach too. Great sushi & bottle shop across road too.

Great week in Port Douglas! Excellent value for money with the studio room. Breakfast is simple but good value, pancake machine is a nice touch and toasted sandwiches! Lagoon pool is great for all ages and extra pools around the back are good to escape kids. Studio room is a great size, lounge area, kitchen and great size balcony! I... More

We stayed in a hotel room with twin beds. The room was small (but that wasn't surprising) but the bathroom is a decent size, particularly for a hotel room. The biggest annoyance is that the rooms are not serviced, even though it is a hotel room. Fresh towels were available from reception, however extra toilet paper is not (we stayed... More

Currently half way through our stay at Mantra Portsea. I will never be recommending this place to anyone. The hotel room we booked is tiny, although since we don't spend a lot of time in the room it's sufficient. The pool area is quite nice too, however that is where the positives stop. There are no lifts, just a lot... More

We stayed there for four night over Christmas. Breakfast was under catered which meant the fact that 'breakfast included' was not true as we had to go and buy our own in town. Rooms are not services and our room was tiny, not much space aside from the bed once bags were in. We had to collect our own towels... More

Hotel is in a great location, however most hotels are along this main road in Port Douglas. During the stay we got the impression the hotel management were cutting costs as much as they can. The breakfast could have been more substantial as they only offer a continental breakfast crammed into a small room by the tennis court. The coffee... More

Good Morning- Thank you for your review, As with many Resorts Mantra Portsea is a self catered apartment style resort and this is claer on our website to note no daily servicing. We find our guests enjoy their holiday without staff entering their rooms at different times of the day. The breakfast offering is contential as stated on the website... More

Stayed here in Nomenber 2015. The staff were friendly enough and there was an issue with the power in my room which they fixed, even though the site handyman had clocked off. The room was very small, the swimming pools are terrible, room cleaning is not provided but may be included for a ridiculously high charge. Overall a very average... More

Thanks Paul for your review, although a little surprised with your perception of Portsea. Portsea has 3 pools to choose from which is a very wide range, slides, spas, waterfalls and different rock levels to enjoy as well as a swim up pool bar. Thank you for taking the time. Kind regards, Lisa Brown General Manager More

We arrived tired and hungry and were greeted by friendly and happy staff immediately, who were more than willing to help us get settled and find our way around Port Douglas. The room was clean and neat, and the air conditioning was perfect in the heat. The kitchen amenities were great, we had everything we needed to prepare meals and... More

The big letdown to this place was the noise of children screaming at the pool, running up and down the corridors playing chasing, and parents who did nothing about it. Somehow when you get little children and a pool together, you have screeches all day long and well after the curfew of 9pm. Had to complain to staff and the... More

Nice to hear you did enjoy your time, As Portsea is a family friendly resort, holiday times we are always full of children enjoying the facitlites. The attraction to our 2 other pools is the quiet nature of them, glad you spent time at them also. Kind regards, Lisa Brown General Manager More

The complex is set around a large swimming pool with rooms having a small balcony and easy access to the Pool. There is no elevator so expect to carry your luggage up and down stairs to your room from the free car park under the complex. The rooms need refurbishment in my opinion as the white blinds are aged and... More
