Pool was beautiful although a little difficult to access some areas. Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, the beds were really nice and king singles for the kids which is great if they are that bit older. We found the kitchen to be ridiculously small and you could not cook with 2 pots on the hot plates at once. No... More

Arrived at the Mantra Portsea to a warm welcome from staff and were swiftly checked in and guided to our room via a map of the resort. We booked a hotel room and found the room clean and adequate for a short stay. This resort does not offer room servicing so our supplies were in the room sg toilet paper... More

Secluded and private, well maintained and clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Only a short drive to Port Douglas and its bustling cafes and shops. Beautiful Four Mile Beach is also a short stroll away.

Stayed at Mantra Portsea in late December 2014 in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment was situated on the far side of the hotel away from the pool area. The kids absolutely loved the various pools around the property, particularly the main pool with the great swim-up bar! The location of the hotel is great - town is only a... More

We had a fantastic time at the Mantra Portsea Port Douglas - the resort facilities are fantastic and family friendly, which was important as we have a ten month old son. All of the staff were so lovely and helpful, with family friendly tours to fantastic cocktails in the swim up bar. Thanks for a great trip.

The Mantra at Portsea is a lovely place to stay. The staff are all lovely and very helpful. Including the booking of trips and advising on places to eat in the evening. The rooms are well equipped and there is everything you need for a very relaxing stay. Free wifi would have been nice but the Hotel has a computer... More

The Mantra Portsea far exceeded our expectations. Last minute trip decision & we definitely picked the right place. The room was very well equipped, overlooked the pool with a great outlook. Staff were very nice, polite & only too eager to assist. We booked again for September this year & can't wait to go back. First time to Port Douglas,... More
