Mantra in the Village
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Well located in the heart of Port Douglas. Nice pool. Easy walking distance to cafes, restaurants, shopping and the marina. Port Douglas was the perfect location to stay for our Daintree river and rainforest adventure. It's an easy drive to Cape Tribulation.

Check in was quick, friendly staff.

Good little rooms and a nice pool on the property. We were booked in here for 2 nights but due to a family emergency had to check out the first night. Tried calling reception, no answer. Tried calling the after hours number, no answer. After trying a few times we gave up and just went home. Had to call the next morning to tell them we had left the room key in the room.

My sister and I stayed at Mantra in the Village in November. We were very worried after reading some of the reviews, Definitely what some people moan about. We had to wait an hour or so for our room, but we knew that, as it states that 2.30pm is arrival time. We then went and had lunch and on return , found a lovely cool apartment awaiting. It was spacious ,comfortable, excellent facilities, all that we needed. No noise. Well done Mantra, we loved our stay!

Room Tip: Close to restaurants, shops, a little walk to the beach, but needed that after all the eateries. Ove...

Me and my wife stayed here for 3 nights after leaving cairns and really enjoyed it.

On arrival we were early and I called the phone in reception to advise we were early and the girl advised rooms were not ready but she would give me a shout when they were which was nice and also gave us an opportunity to see the town.

Staff really nice and helpful - we were allocated a twin room as I didn't realise our booking agent booked this but reception were more than happy to change and we were relocated to a lovely room over the pool.

Rooms nice good size bed, spa in the bedroom along with shampoos etc, twinings tea and nice balcony, there is a good tv with movie and sports channels and air con but also a fan incase you hate air con so a real bonus.

You have to pay $9 per hour for wifi however mantra heritage 100 yards round the corner lets you use the Internet for as long as you like and print also so very handy.

Location is really good right next to shops and cafe's and the Main Street in port Douglas with all the shops and restaurants is a mere 30 yards away!

Parking is free sound travelling from cairns don't worry,

Cheers mantra in the village,

A tip: if you want a gigantic meal free wifi and decent price try pokies around the corner just past Coles- had a steak which was amazing and I could hardly walk after!

Spent a week @ the Mantra in the Village Port Douglas. Room was very spacious, bed soooo comfy, excellent facilitates, well air conditioned (you need it).. Balcony with spa was enjoyed a number of times. Great location just off main street. Serviced by great inexpensive restaurants and cafes. Walking distance to main street and wharf areas. Quite side street. Friendly staff on reception as well as the cleaning & room staff. Nothing was to hard, everything was easy.

After reading some of the reviews about this hotel l was a bit hesitant, but when l arrived l was greeted by a lovely receptionist, who was very friendly and helpful although the desk wasn't always manned the Heritage on Mantra is only a round the corner if you needed anything.
My room was very clean and was surprised it had a kitchen sink also. The pool area is clean but not my ideal pool area but again you could go to Heritages pool which was lovely. My air conditioner did break down, but as soon as l told them l was upgraded by the time arrived home from my day out, the location was ideal right in the centre of town and was not noisy at all. I would go back to this motel if l ever return to Port Douglas.
