A nice resort for families with everything in walking distance. Great location. The apartment (3BR that we stayed in) was quite spacious - much bigger than we thought. The pool and spa provided a great attraction for the whole family. We stayed in a 3BR apartment and the A/C is only in the lounge, so the the bedrooms on the... More

We stayed at Mantra Aqua for one week mid January. If you want a great family orientated place to stay in Nelson Bay then this is the place for you. Spacious apartment with a great pool....it was hard getting the kids out!! It's an easy walk into town and the marina which is handy. The staff were always friendly and... More

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Mantra Aqua for our Christmas Holiday - we stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with 2 adults and 5 kids. Plenty of space for everyone . Yes the pool is always overcrowded but the kids still loved it ! Especially great is that the pool has long steps for the... More

I have been to this place twice and found little to fault it with on both occasions. It must be said that this place seems perfectly tailored to families with children under twelve years of age. The place is teeming with children. Not at all recommended for couples seeking a romantic time away. The positives: 1) Dedicated car parking and... More

The apartments are in a good location,close to all attractions and beachside cafes and restaurants and the Information place. The apartment was clean, modern and had a balcony overlooking the water spouts and pool. Lovely white fluffy towels in the bathrooms and nice linens. The staff were caring,polite and helpful. Only one thing I could not understand the procedure for... More

We stayed for 4 nights and at $550 a night expected a better apartment. There was no view, furniture was worn, blinds were broken, balcony was too small to sit outside for a meal. The pool was so crowded and noisy we stayed away. The Mantra Aqua is in a very urban area so it is not peaceful or scenic.... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a two bedroom apartment. Great facilities for a family - laundry and an equipped kitchen. Room was tidy and decent foxtel. 5 minute walk to cafes and a handful of restaurants (the bowling club has a good kids menu). The pool is not the biggest but does the job and has a great hot...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for the first week of January - when the property was completely full. The apartment was fine, though one of the bathrooms definitely had a problem with damp. The biggest issue we had was the noise - we were in a 'pool view' apartment, which was also next to the BBQ area. Consequently... More

We stayed here (a family of 4) last week after Christmas. It was a lovely, super spacious 2-bedroom apartment. Our kids loved it because they can run around and it has the view of the swimming pool. It was clean and a short 10 minute walk to the town centre. The heated pool was lovely and it was lighted up... More

We stayed for 8 nights & enjoyed our stay. Two large large bedrooms, good size kitchen, two good bathrooms & a large lounge / dining area. Our little one loved the splash pool & the main pool with the layered steps. Car parking was a breeze with lift access. The balcony was lovely for breakfast & lunch. All in all... More
