Mantra in the Village
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Great location in terms of convenience but if you want to sleep you might be better somewhere else. It's 12.50am and the bar across the road is pumping, very loud music and people having a great time - shame we can't join in but it would be illegal to leave our 7 year old here on his own and we couldn't take him with us! Apparently it goes until 2.00am so we'll just have to try not to go completely mad before then. It's a shame the otherwise very friendly and helpful staff didn't think to mention this when we booked. We come to Port Douglas frequently but don't think we'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't get one facing the street

Hi Gilbert M.

Thank you for your feedback , I am sorry to hear of your disappointing one night stay with us.
Being a central resort in the middle of Port Douglas , that convenience does mean that we sometimes have some some noisey neighbors on a busy saturday night during peak season.

The Restaurant across the road held a party on the night you visited but you will be happy to know that this is not a weekly event !

We will be happy to accomodate you in an different location for you next stay.

Regards , Peter

This was our second stay at Mantra in the Village and you really can't beat the location. It is right in the middle of town, but cleverly designed so we were not bothered by street noise. Coles is virtually next door, the beach is a 5 minute walk, as is Flagstaff Hill, the Sunday markets and every restaurant in town. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. Both bedrooms are ensuite, there is a kitchen and full size fridge for keeping the drinks cool. The apartment was clean, the decor modern and the staff friendly.
The only down side this visit was that there is construction going on next door which started early each morning. It didn't bother us as we are early risers, but if you like a sleep-in, you may find this inconvenient.
I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We had room 33 which overlooks the pool and is very nice

There was a very friendly and welcoming man at reception to great us. We had a lovely room which was clean and comfortable. Heaps of space and a great view. The location was fantastic. I can not think of anything bad to say about our stay. We will stay again.

My family stayed in a 2 bedroom appartment for 7 days. We found the appartment to be a good size for 2 adults + 2 children, very clean and a great central location in Port Douglas. All the staff were extremely helpful and informative and helped plan our itinery and made our holiday very special. We would be very happy to come back and can recommend this resort.

We stayed for 2 nights recently and found the room to be clean and well equipped - we had a nice porch overlooking the side street, across to Watergate restaurant, but when the people above started their spa, the noise echoed around our room...very noisy and we could also hear their shower - and it went on for hours - and couldn't be drowned out by our TV...so the building is poorly insulated or noise is certainly an issue in some rooms. The noise from the street wasn't a problem at all and overnight the resort was quiet.
We've stayed at other Hotels with spa and jacuzzi facilities, like the Regal, and even though you can hear a distant rumble, it was nothing like this...
The pool was also cold - we didn't use it...it might need heating from time to time.
The room was fine - spacious, well appointed and comfortable and the location is excellent - reception were also friendly and helpful.

Hi evansbrown.

Thank you for your feedback on your stay with us.

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay and found the staff to be helpful and friendly.
Thanks also for your time on the phone where you explained to me the noise issue that you had. We have not had any previous feedback regarding this but I have checked the room to ensure it wasn't a matter of a guest in the room above unintentionally leaving the spa or shower running.

You will find that very few resorts have a heated pool in Port Douglas as we get very few months where it is cold , one of the advantages of being in the tropical north at this time of year !

We stayed four nights in June in a 1 bedroom suite. We enjoyed the spa in the suite and it was quiet although it was very central. The staff were very helpful, recommended and booked tours for us. We saw other resorts which were out of town but would stay here again.

we stayed in 2 bedroom apartment which was excellent ,,very clean and well appointed. The house staff were excellent as I found the bed too hard and they did all they could to source a foam mattress topper which did the trick !
Although the room faced over the street the noise wasnt an issue as the louvres on the balcony when closed blocked out any sound . The spa on the balcony was great fun too and perfect at the end of the day to relax in
location is just brilliant everything is right there ,,perfect as well if there are people who cant walk too far or dont want to have to drive after arriving . will recommend this place to others and will stay there again on another visit
