The hotel is fantastic value for money with great service and extras you don't normally expect in a Serviced Apartment stay. The lagoon pool area was great with plenty of places to relax, plus a great swim up bar with a 3-4 happy hour!! Breakfast room, gym, outdoor spa, in room spa and a day spa added luxury to the...

I found the rooms comfortable clean and the pool area great. It was a 10 minute short walk to town and the beach is down a lane behind it. Breakfast is a great quick continental with an awesome pancake machine and would stay again next time.

This place is very very good. Perfect for couples, great amenities and a poolside bar! Not too far from town, but close to the beach. A very enjoyable stay, we weren't disappointed. A good layout and maybe could only do with a restaurant! We want to go back already.

The best word to describe The Portsea is 'Average'. It's certainly not the worst by any means but there will definitely be better options to choose from. Probably best to start with the good: The morning breakfast is OK. There is enough choice to keep everyone interested. The gymnasium, spa and games area are also reasonable (not outstanding) but are... More

We recently had 8 nights at the Mantra - 6 adults/3 couples. A couple of us had the self contained apartments that were really well set up with a full size fridge, cooking facilities and all of the crockery and utensils required. Our room was on the ground floor, southern side which means it was quite dark and shaded. If... More

My grandmother and mother came for a visit last year for my birthday. My grandmother was 85 years old, had to get permission to fly, and the Travel Agent was aware of this but booked her all the way down the bottom of the hotel away from everywhere a old woman would want to be(which I know is not mantras...

Amazing how we went from the Mantra Cairns which we loved to the Portsea and found them so different. The Mantra Portsea has a great pool area which will make it attractive to many sun worshipers but the hotel set up is weird with the entire complex being like a horshoe around the pool area. As were right up the... More

Beautiful looking resort - distinct disadvantage is that there are stairs ..... Everywhere Reception was welcoming, friendly staff, but their lack of empathy with guests who are unable to manage their luggage up & down stairs was a bit of a drawback...I asked if there was a porter for assistance - no - not sorry - just no I was...

My husband and I have just spent 7 days at Mantra Portsea, I can't say a bad word about this resort, it was stunning and relaxing just what hubby and I needed. Yes the breakfast is a basic breakfast but honestly you really don't need much else. The girls at reception were fantastic and catered for my needs, I had... More
