Staff did not inform us that the rooms weren't serviced daily or that we had to collect towels from reception daily. Room had a musty smell with stains on the carpet. Breakfast average - bowls/cups etc were dirty! 15 minute walk into town so location not ideal.

We arrived at 1am but were greeted by an attendant who checked us in and showed us to our room which was cosy and perfect for our trip. A couple of minor issues with our room but nothing major to complain about. We came over school holidays but will definitely return when there aren't so many kids!

The location of Portsea is excellent. Easy access to the beach and town so it is great if travelling with kids. The rooms are a little tired and run down.

Excellent customer service, great spa, pedicure and manicure service, massage services can be improved. Tennis courts should be available at more regular intervals. Pools can provide more cocktails and hot foods

Stayed at Mantra using a rewards voucher, and we had a quiet room at the back of the building not far from the lap pool. Our room was relatively small, but it was nice to be able to open sliding doors to sit on our own private seat area. The bed was very soft and comfy! Had four very good...

Double room was disappointing as it was small with no balcony. Very basic unlike other places we have stayed. Staff polite though and services were good. Would enquire further about rooms before any future bookings.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled amongst North Queensland's tropical rainforests, Mantra PortSea is a short walk to golden beaches and Port Douglas main tourist strip, Macrossan Street which offers an abundance of restaurants, shops, bars and clubs. At Mantra PortSea there are almost too many relaxation choices, there are three swimming pools with the large central lagoon featuring a swim-up pool bar with water slide, spas and waterfalls surrounded by magnificent Golden Canes and vivid Haliconias. For activity-seekers there is a fully-equipped gymnasium and tennis court. The PortSea Massage & Beauty Day Spa offers plenty of opportunity for pampering and relaxation with a full range of massage and beauty treatments. Guest services include baby sitting services, a guest laundry, undercover car parking, an internet room, arrival and departure lounge plus our booking services can organise tour bookings to the reef, rainforest and other local attractions. Situated between the seascape of Four Mile Beach and Port Douglas Village, the property offers hotel rooms, and one and two bedroom suites or two bedroom apartments. All hotel rooms, studios and apartments feature air-conditioning, ceiling fans, flat screen TV, DVD player, movies on demand, mini-bar on request and tea and coffee making facilities. One and two bedroom studios and two bedroom apartments boast the added convenience of kitchenette facilities and the comfort of a two person spa bath and private balcony. From your courtyard or balcony the sights and sounds of the tropical north will provide a carefree holiday environment for the whole family. Tropical North Queensland is famous for the reef, rainforest and numerous adventure activities that can be undertaken. Four Mile Beach (just one minute's walk from the resort) is a unique stretch of beach that looks out over the Coral Sea. All tours can be booked by the reception tour desk. Holidaymakers looking for cosmopolitan sophistication set against the backdrop of the Coral Sea should look no further than Mantra PortSea.
