My family stayed here for 7 nights during the school holidays in a 2 bedroom apartment (room 89) on the top floor. The apartment is small, but most suitable for a holiday. It was clean and comfortable with a small kitchenette to cook , lovely spa bath and comfortable bedding. it had a lovely balcony where you could sit overlooking... More

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

We stayed in a 1 bedroom studio with a balcony and I would highly recommend this room! As soon as we walked in we felt relaxed. The room was spacious and felt like a world away from the big cities. The hotel itself was tropical and welcoming as well as the staff. Just bring some aero gaurd as there is... More

We stayed 1 week during school holidays and 1 after. While not the best resort in Port Douglas it is as described online. Yes it was busy and yes even our 2 terrors were a handful at breakfast but you just get on with it. Room are fine and maybe ever so slightly dated (but not really) all living and... More

With so many choices of accommodation in Port Douglas from right in the town centre to along the main drive into Port Douglas, this Mantra hotel provides a nice balance of location, close enough to town to walk along beach into town, & far enough away to not suffer from town and vehicle noise. The hotel itself while aged provides... More

Stayed for a week with my wife and 14 yr old daughter. Nice balcony view to the main pool although the pool bar was directly in front of us. The room was ok and clean enough so no complainants there. The general staff were mostly german and were always very friendly and helpful. The reception staff were excellent. This place... More

Being a little away from the main drag was excellent and a chance for a lovely walk 10 minutes back from the shops. The room was big and sunny. Service at reception was very good. My only complaint is that there was no room service at all in the 6 days we stayed there and if we wanted clean towels... More

After reading numerous reviews on the Mantra Port Sea I decided to make a 5 night reservation staying in the July school holidays. There were good and bad aspects to this resort. The good aspects were the reception area, main pool, although very cold at this time of year and the tennis court. The bad aspects were firstly the room.... More

I think an earlier poster got it spot on in that this place seems confused on what it wants to be. Is it a self appointed apartments or a hotel? The entrance is nice and the pool, while cold, is laid out well. Location is also good with only a small walk into town. The 'hotel room' was honestly smaller... More

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
