The Mantra resorts are in the mid range of the Stella group holiday apartments. Pebble Beach resotrs at the top end and Brekfree at the budget end. Despite some mixed stories on Trip Advisor about Portsea good price won us over for a 9 day stay for 2 "bedroom" apt for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Though off to a poor start in accomodation, the staff and managmenet were helpful and friendly in sorting things out. Fate led us first to the exact rooms complained about online with the smell of chip fat from 1130 to 7pm. (Room 27 on ground floor) Caution: it is likely that most rooms along the back near the pool bar are all downwind of the cooking. We moved were moved after 2 days to a 3rd floor front facing apt which was great. The 2 "bedrooms" is actually 1 studio with adjoining bedroom. Probably ok for young families but less so for adult groups looking for a bit more privacy. Nonetheless, reasonably fitted out kitchen and good access to communcal BBQ. Everything is self service, so if you're looking for daily cleaning and fresh towels, etc this is not for you. Good value for money, but not a romantic getaway for couples location.
