The Mantra PortSea in Port Douglas is in a great location, only minutes walk to the beach but still close to the main street (an easy 10 minute walk). Lovely pool area which was nice and shallow for kids to swim in and very friendly staff :) We would definitely come back :)

Just returned from 6 nights at Mantra Portsea and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Was feeling a little wary after reading some of the negative reviews here, but had nothing to worry about. The property is landscaped beautifully with the main feature being the lagoon pool which has lots of sunloungers around it, and lovely little subareas and features. Swim... More

We recently stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room had all the facilities you would expect and was very clean and comfortable. The airconditioner and ceiling fans were very effective in such hot and humid conditions. I really appreciated the shampoo, conditioner and creams provided in the bathroom. They were not your normal cheap standard that you... More

We arrived as a family of five and were swiftly located in an ideal two bedroom apartment. The facilities were first class: good sized clean rooms (with cooking facilities), pool, bar, tennis court, gymnasium, laundry and an excellent breakfast room. Staff were extremely helpful and rightly proud of what they had to offer as a venue. Port Douglas is beautiful... More
