4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was the second time we stayed at Portsea, both times we have left relaxed and rejuvinated. The pool and bar area is a place to lay back and relax and chill out after a day of sightseeing. The staff were friendly, helpful and polite.We would be more than willing to stay at Mantra Portsea again.

The Mantra Portsea is a bit of a walk out of the CBD of Port Douglas. If you don't mind walking, there is a foot path across the road. If you can't do a lot of walking around there is a bus stop across the road. The bus costs $4 to catch the bus to the CBD at this time.... More

Excellent facilities, service & location! Short walk from beach when it's too windy you can go to the resort pool. Get in early for a lounge in the sun & happy hour between 3-4pm. Good service at reception helpful & provide replacement beach towels. Kitchenette perfect & lots of bbqs to meet needs. Clean serviced mid week. Great stay we... More

I'm not going to lie, there were a few issues with this hotel. The first was that we were not aware before arriving that we would have to pay a daily fee for the room to be cleaned; this was the first time I have experienced this on my travels so was slightly taken aback by this. You have to... More

We recently spent 6 nights at the Mantra PortSea and whilst I don't normally comment on Trip Advisor feel I need to after our stay. Firstly we booked a king size zip poolside room with balcony. I phoned the day before to ensure the king zip bed would be made into two single beds as per my request as we... More

The only thing going for this place was the friendly staff. That's where the goodness stops. The room was filthy. The bathroom had growing mould & the towels had pubic hair in them! When the front desk was approached about the mold they said they are aware of the mould & waiting for it to be fixed. The initial response... More

This hotel has apartments and rooms. There is no restuaraunt here except for a breakfast area which is rather ordinary. I suggest to get an apartment if you go here as it is a 15 minute walk into town for lunch and dinner. The use of WiFi is $15 for the first two hours - many places have it free.... More

Hello Spottedeer, Thank you for your review. It is disappointing to hear that you would not return to our Mantra Portsea. During school holidays the majority of our guests are families with children, which love the lagoon pool. If you are looking for some quiet time while away, we recommend to travel outside of school holidays. Thank you once again... More

The staff were friendly and quite helpful. The room we stayed in was clean and spacious. It was only a short walk into town. Even the harbour is in walking distance. You can organise day trips to pick you up at the front door step. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Ideal location. Great pools, BBQ facilities, excellent breakfasts. Rooms good but don't book one of the smaller hotel rooms if staying for a while - very small - pays to upgrade to a larger room Close to the beach and a short walk to the main shopping street

Great location, friendly staff, clean and modern rooms. Would definitely stay here again. Didn't expect much for breakfast but it was great - excellent selection of cereals, breads to toast, croissants, fresh fruit etc and even a 'do it yourself' pancake maker.
