4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2011

Great hotel in the middle of town. Excellent value. Easy access to everything. Just wish the reception staff smiled a little more!

Room was spacious and was good value for price.

Is right in the middle of Port Douglas as name suggests - so easy to walk around.

The pool is a bit small and so is the lift!

This is the second time we have used Mantra in the Village Resort and once again we had a fantastic experience.
The self contained rooms are spacious, clean, nicely furnished and extremely comfortable with air conditioning and ceiling fans.
The property features pool, spa, BBQ area, tour desk and secure vehicle parking.
The location is perfect and within easy walking distance of restaurants, pubs, shops, beach and marina.
Highly recommended.

I would say this resort is of average quality, Looks like it once was quite special but everything in the apartment needs a bit of upgrading, a good clean and paint. We booked a two bedroom apartment for two nights which cost us $560. It was a good set up as my daughter basically had her own suite with TV and bathroom. Mantra in the Village is very well located with a great cafe up the road which served the most delicious breakfasts. But overall I think my $560 should have got me something really special and it didn't. I probably wouldn't stay again unless I got a great deal.

My partner and i stayed at Mantra in the Village in March 2010 and thought it was fantastic. The service was good and the room was fantastic. The fully equiped kitchen, seperate lounge/dining, bedroom and bathrrom made our room feel like a 'home away from home'. We would deffinately stay at Mantra in the Village again.

We were in a lovely 2 Bed Spa apartment which was clean, bright and airy, with 2x double beds, air con and ceiling fans.
The apartments are well proportioned and well equipped with kitchenette, flat screen tv's and almost everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The spa bath was large and worked great.

The floors are tiled and keep you nice and cool in the warm QLD weather.

The pool area is compact, but very nice and clean.

This hotel is very close to the centre of PD but is nice and quiet at night time for a great nights sleep. Just 50 metres away are nice restaurants, shops and bars. A short walk to the marina or 4 mile beach makes this a perfect location.

Reception staff (Shannon) was very helpful and there to answer any queries between 9am and 4pm and with reception staff on call from the Heritage next door out of hours.

The secure underground parking was great too and keeps the car cool.

PD is a great location and I couldn't really fault this property. We have stopped there 3 times now.

Service was awesome, staff were extremely helpful - were able to book me on an all day tour at short notice with no problems at all.
Room was fantastic - we had 2 rooms between 3 of us and it was just perfect, beds were comfy as.
Location was perfect, just around the corner from the shopping areas
Only problem we had for the week we were there was a group of youths that proceeded to fight amongst themselves at 3am - made for good entertainment tho.
