“Perfect Location.”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Fantastic location on the corner of Macrossan st, walking distance to shops, restaurants and Four Mile Beach. The one bedroom apartment has a fully stocked kitchen, and having a washing machine and dryer was incredibly handy. The balcony has a spa, and we found the pool area was quiet and clean. Enjoyable stay, and would come here again. Only drawback was that we stayed there for four nights, and our room wasn't serviced once.

Is place is great for singles, couples and families. The rooms are spacious, the kitchen has everything you would need, big bathrooms, super super comfortable beds. The rooms with private spa's and direct pool swim up are fantastic. The staff are friendly and helpful, this Mantra is quiet, just off the main street, one block from the beach. Perfect !!!!

We went to Pt Douglas for our wedding anniversary so no kids with us. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment that was clean, comfortable and had enough cooking stuff that you could sort out a meal without too much trouble. Loved the king size bed! The spa on the balcony was great. All in all the only downside was the next door pool with kids being in there early ( well 8am which for us was early) in the morning. I would ask for a room on the opposite side of the complex next time but we're already thinking about taking the whole family back next year...

We stayed in a 1 bedroom top floor apartment for 5 nights overlooking the pool. Our apartment was very clean, spacious and of good quality. The spa tub on the balcony was very special. The whole complex is very tidy and clean with 4 pools to choose from. It is in an excellent location, very close to Macrossen St and 4 mile beach. All in all an enjoyable stay.

My husband and I came for 5 days for a short honeymoon. We loved our little apartment so much, the hotel is located perfectly.. 2 blocks from the beach and the same to restaurants, cafes and shops. All of the staff we encountered were lovely (Shannon, Katie, Michelle) and so friendly they made us feel right at home, asking how our holiday was and offering local information and entertainment and helped us without being asked, they gave the hotel and our holiday a really personal touch.

The pools were great, all 4 of them, even if unheated. The BBQ areas looked to a be a real bonus even though we didn't use them ourselves.

The showers are the best ever, lots of room and great pressure! The apartments are very spacious, have a fully equipped kitchen and little lounge.

We were so impressed with this place we felt quite let down with our accommodation in Cairns and wished we had booked with the Mantra there instead.

We stayed at the Mantra in a 1 bedroom swim out unit in June for 7 nights. The swim up room is well worth the xtra.The room was very spacies and well maintain .The staff were very freindly and went the extra mile to make sure our holiday and stay at the Mantra was very enjoyable from booking and organising tours and resturants for us. We will be staying at the Mantra next time we visit Port Douglas .

Room Tip: Rooms and pool on the south side are quieter and get the afternoon sun

Close to 4 mile beach, close to Macrossan St, a short walk to the marina, Mantra Aqueous could not be more perfectly located to enjoy all that Port Douglas has to offer, which went a long way to ensure our holiday was brilliant. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities very clean. The room smelt of dampness and the fridge was being defrosted when we first arrived but this was finished quickly and the damp smell was not noticed after we aired the room out.
