Modern units, very well equipped, close to the town, lovely pool & spa..a nice place for families.. Wasn't really impressed by cleanliness of the unit..only a few little things..a popped red balloon in the middle of the lounge room makes me think it wasn't vacuumed, black hand prints around the door handle...dust on top of fridge...there is no smoking in...

Stayed here recently for a weekend away. Location wise it is pretty good, close to all amenities. I stayed in a 2 bed apartment which was pretty nice, well equipped and decorated nicely. The reception/check in are extremely friendly, particular mention to Karlie who is extremely friendly and does a great job!! Great that they have undercover parking which is... More

Spent 1 night at Mantra Aqua on our way to Port Macquarie from Sydney. Staff were extremely polite and courteous. Check in was quick and easy and parking is undercover and safe as the whole placed is locked at night. Room was spacious and well equipped. Only criticism was that there's only 1 ac unit in main room so even... More

An enjoyable stay with excellent 2 bedroom family room and lounge area plus balcony. Allowed our teenagers to chill out and not get in each other's way all the time. Location is awesome close to the main attractions in the town center plus parking onsite is free and under cover. The pool is great but at peak times very busy... More

This is a nice place without being amazing. The rooms are big and well equipped. The pool area is nice, but the water fountain kids play area is a bit of a waste of space, was hardly used and we were there when it was packed and hot. Better use might be a kids paddle pool as the main pool... More

A great family location. Very close to shops. My only negative is our room was just outside the pool which is quite noisey and not good to sit on your balcony and relax. Rooms were nice and spacious so easy could accomadate to couples

Stayed here over the new year period for 4 nights in the penthouse 3 bedroom apartment. We stayed here 2 years ago in the deluxe 3 bedroom apartment which was ok. I must firstly say that the service level from the front counter staff is excellent and very professional. Lorraine G. in particular was delightful and very helpful. FYI -... More

The accommodation was very tired and in desperate need of an upgrade. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and were very disappointed. The lounge room was dark and had a musty smell and the mattress in our bedroom was so lumpy we could not sleep. More of a three star at most. The staff however were great and personable... More

Downside - noise and general overcrowding of the pool area. Charging for wi-fi. Unable to provide assistance with menus for local restaurants or loan of an umbrella. Basically once you're checked in your on your own. Upside - They were able to move us from a poolside room. Apartments are nice and spacious. Wi-fi works well (once you've got the... More

Resort is well situated however the facilities are geared towards families with young children. Swimming pool opens at 07h00 and closes at 19h00. If you are in a pool facing room the noise levels are high. Pool loungers are few and unless you are at the pool very early there is nowhere to sit, so one can take a dip... More
