We booked back in December 2013 and had requested not to be on the ground floor. On arrival we were given a ground floor room which was very dark and furnishings dated. Had we not pre-paid we would have tried to source alternate accommodation. Staff were unable to assist with a room change during our 5 night stay. The resort... More

The breakfast room was atrocious with no staff and what little staff there was were backpackers that wouldnt clear the tables instead watched the... More

It is a great looking hotel in a good location to walk to the beach, shops and marina. There is a really well set out pool but it was too cold, I was looking forward to the swim up bar but didn't use it, it needs to be heated. We had a hotel room which was whats usually expected expected... More

I would advise everyone to steer clear of the mantra portsea. The rooms are run down, smell and are well over priced! If there are kids in the room above you, then good luck getting any sleep! They advertise a heated pool which they do not have! The spas are freezing cold! The pool bar is rarely open! We were... More

We stayed at the Portsea Mantra in Port Douglas. It is in a fantastic location - a few minutes walk to the Four Mile beach and 10-15 min stroll to the main shopping strip (Macrossan Avenue). The staff at the Mantra were extremely friendly and helpful and offered a great local knowledge. The lagoon pool is quite shallow and perfect... More

It was wet and cold. No one in the pool but the stay was relaxing. Snuggled in bed, had a bubbly hot spa in my room. I took my work with me so having relaxing timeout sessions was great. Next time I'll go up now the sun is out but I will leave the work at home. I'd would like... More

First time staying at a Mantra and thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were very helpful, from finding me an Optometrist when my glasses broke, to booking restaurants and giving activity advice. We had a 1 bedroom Studio Unit which was great, had a balcony which was very handy. Also had the Breakfast as part of the accommodation deal which made things... More

We stayed at portsea for 10 nights and we had a wonderful time. Room was very clean and staff very helpful!! Great location and super quiet, our room was next to the water fall which had a very calming effect! Close to the beach and town, as well the daintree and other places for day trips.

The reception area and pool are beautiful but the room we had did not represent a 4 star resort. The room was very tired. Ripped seats dripping shower. The staff were Very helpful. The breakfast room was great.
