Friendly customer service/managers. Smooth handling of week end/after 6 arrival. More than adequate amenities for the family. Comfortable. The only complain is: hot water suddenly stopped at around mid nite.

Great value for your money ! At the most convenient location in Nelsons bay, 5-10 minute walk to beach and shops. The accomodation is great with penthouse options ! If youre looking to go on a trip with a large group, i suggest booking with aqua mantra !

The Aqua Mantra is the perfect location at Nelsons Bay. It is really 5 minutes walking distance from the beach and shops. You can have a little walk down to the beach or the shops to get something at your convenience. The views are amazing and the prices were great. Will recommend booking at this place for accomodation if you're... More

This hotel was one of the best places I have stayed. It is about a 10 minute walk to the ocean. The hotel has a great view of the ocean. The hotel has some big rooms. The only thing I didn't like was that the beds were a bit hard but everything else was so good.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on a voucher and enjoyed a lovely quiet break. The girls on reception gave a warm welcome and were pleasantly surprised with our large apartment. We stayed in apartment 25 and my only disappointment was the quality of the bed in the master bedroom. The mattress and pillows were old and lumpy and... More

We recently stayed at the Mantra Aqua, Nelson Bay for three nights. The Mantra Aqua markets itself as a luxury resort - it was very disappointing. We were in a three Bedroom Penthouse. The apartment was well past the date when it should have been renovated. The furniture was old and tired, the carpets badly stained and the bathrooms dated.... More

I would not be able to commend the girls at the front desk, lovely and so helpful. The room and pools were beautiful and had a kookaburra visit us every morning. So close to everything in town barely used the car at all. Nice, relaxing, quiet holiday :)

The apartments are extremely comfortable and well-equipped eg. everything you could want in the kitchen, a large lcd tv in the... More
