Felt very homely being a self catered apartment, very large and spacious inside. Three large bedrooms with two bathrooms. Modern kitchen with everything you need. The location was walking distance to the shops and heart of Nelsons Bay.

We stayed for 3 nights, the staff were lovely.Our room was was very good and very clean. Really good location, the facilities were good, my only complaint is that the heated pool and spa were not as warm as they should have been.

We stayed at the Mantra Aqua over Easter, and had a lovely stay. The resort met most of our expectations, however it wasn't perfect. We opted for a pool view apartment and we now have mixed feelings about the value of this. The room was lovely and spacious, comfortably furnished and met all our needs in this regard. The resort...

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in February and we were put into a room on the ground floor with the pool right outside. It was so noisy early in the mornings that we had no choice but to get up. There is nowhere to walk around or sit and it is quite a walk to town and... More

We went her for two nights with a group of friends. We had two rooms and they were lovely. This was exactly what we were looking for and enjoyed our stay. We didn't appreciate however that there would be quite so many children. The pool was packed all of the time with kids having a ball. Not great when you... More

Was a nice place to stay at.. room was spacious and clean. Resort is only minutes walk from the beach and they have a nice pool and bbq area. Resort is located on the corner so it's pretty quiet as not much cars drive past. The staff were friendly. They also offer secured parking. Would stay here again

A group of us stayed at mantra on a golf trip. The apartments were excellent. Very clean and roomy. We were staying on discount vouchers, so not paying a lot, but were still treated as first class guests. A couple of small things with our room (remote for fan not working etc) were fixed as soon as we notified. A... More

I bought a Scoopon for the Mantra Aqua for a 3 night stay. I hadn't bought one before so this was a first. Found the whole procedure very easy! Mantra were great to book with and confirmed booking via email. Our 2 bedroom apartment was very clean and comfortable with big flat screen TV in lounge & smaller one in... More

i have stayed at better mantras but this was fairly good. Great pool area but always packed out. Our room was pretty good although the fan didn't work in bedroom and remotes missing batteries. Perhaps room service could be a bit more on the ball. Not sure about taking out own rubbish and washing dishes before checking out. The room... More

To celebrate my mothers 75th bday and my sisters 50th bday only a few weeks later, I arranged a four day/ three night holiday to the Mantra Aqua in beautiful Nelsons Bay. The resort was lovely, modern and very relaxing. Our very large 3 bedroom unit overlooked the pool area and resort with a large balcony. The unit was very... More
