This place is awesome. Breakfast is great and the pools are crystal clear. Very nice resort and awesome place to stay. Port Douglas is a great place to stay and this is another nice mantra. The unit is very nice and spacious and the kids love the resort facilities. Can Definitely recommend.

Unfortunately, to date my experience has not been a pleasant one. I have not stayed at the hotel as yet but I would rate the customer service I received through Mantra Reservations and Expedia as very poor.

Thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful, well-run hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was very well-equipped with a large k;itchen area, sitting room and spotlessly clean bathroom with shower and whirlpool bath. The hotel grounds and pool were delightful and there was direct access to the idyllic silver beach. The only criticism I... More

Friendly staff. Helpful hint - Grab rails in the showers would be good for elderly people. Good position. Quiet location. Close to the beach. Breakfast was good. Rooms were excellent. Close enough to the main part of town - there are some excellent restaurants in Port Douglas - well worth the visit.

This place is beautiful!! The rooms are very clean, fans, A/C, beds are comfy, bathrooms were spotless, and the hot showers hit the spot after a long day sitting in the pool at the bar, or sitting in the pool at night with relaxing mood lighting. The BBQ area is a relaxing spot to sit and easy to use. Made... More

The Mantra Portsea was one we booked on Expedia and to be honest we've liked it but it was nothing special. Be aware that the rooms do not include servicing the rooms unless you stay for 8 days or more. The ground floors can get dirty coming in and out of the rooms and the pool area etc and watch... More
