Have just arrived home after 14 nights at Portsea. We were really well looked after and the two bedroom apartment we booked was easily large enough for two adults and three kids. Lovely heated spa, huge pool with a great swim up bar and a modern tennis court kept us happy. The Portsea is located a short walk into the... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Mantra Portsea, our two bedroom apartment overlooked the lagoon pool and it was beautiful. Breakfast was included and was a lovely way to start each day with the gorgeous spread they put on. Fantastic staff always polite and very helpful. Great location, we would definately stay there again.

We had a fantastic stay at Mantra Portsea, we already knew that Manta don't "service rooms" so no surprise and not an issue at all for us, in fact preferred it that way. Holiday was booked through Flight Centre which made life a lot easier. Our room was a Lagoon Studio which was fantastic and overlooked the lagoon pool. Room... More

Thank you Chris for your review, I can understand your frustration with your length of stay in this room type. Our hotel rooms are a fanatstic short stay option, however a longer stay would benefit from our apartment style accommodation. This is an issue our management team are discussing at present.

I was worried about the reviews I'd read before our stay but upon arriving I was wondering what all the complaints were about. We really enjoyed our stay. We found our room (Number 50 - 1 bedroom Studio) to be clean, airy big enough for the 2 of us. We didn't cook so I can't comment on the kitchen but... More

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay, So nice to hear your comments. Reviews are subject to personal perceptions and many expect more than the product allows. This is the main reason for so many varied reviews. Our main pool can be a little fresh in the cooler months. The spa and lap pool offer a change from this. Thank... More
