Location was our first priority, price second, and all the rest was a bonus once we arrived, we were greeted by friendly staff, and this continued through to the cleaners smiling and saying hello when we walked past. Well appointed rooms, and clean loved the pools and our spa on the balcony. We would stay there again.

On the plus side, a good location and a comfortable and clean apartment for our one week stay.

On the downside, the continuous noise from refrigeration equipment and the service vehicles from the supermarket and restaurants adjacent meant that sleep was often disturbed.

The timber bedroom shutters did not keep the noise out. We requested a room on the south side after the first night, twice, but there was never any follow up advice. The reception desk was often unmanned for lengthy periods.

Room Tip: Avoid the northern side units.

We appreciate your positive comments regarding the resorts location and standard of the apartment you stayed in.
I am dissapointed to hear that noise from the surrounding area made your stay uncomfortable. We will investigate to see what the exact issue is wth noise reaching your particular apartment, and what measures can be taken to prevent this affecting our guests stays in the future.
Our reception is manned between the hours of 8am and 7pm daily, with the exception of Sunday, closing at 6pm.

I stayed there in July in a Hotel room and it was fantastic. The room was well equipped and the spa was really nice. The staff were really friendly and helpful regarding inquiries. The room was pristine and the pools were lovely. The location was good, being so close and in walking distance of everything. Excellent Hotel.

Room Tip: If i could have afforded it, I would have had an upgrade to the one bed apartments.

I really enjoyed my stay this weekend at Aqueous on Port. The staff were very welcoming and as I had prepaid my room it was very quick to check in and out. The room is exactly as it was advertised which was lovely with a spa! Excellent location right on the corner of Macrossan st meaning everything was a 5 minute walk or less away.

We stayed at Mantra Aqueous on Port for the last week of July and stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the first floor. The location of this property is hard to beat, right near the corner of Macrossan and Port Douglas Road. It is perfectly located only a few minutes walk to the beach and close to all restaurants and shopping but was surprisingly quiet. The apartment is well appointed and has everything you need. I see that someone else's review said the kitchen could have been a bit better equipped and I'd agree with that. The staff are friendly and helpful which made our stay even nicer. Having visited Port Douglas around 7 times before and stayed somewhere different each time, this is the place I would go back to next time. One thing to be aware of is that the WiFi isn't free and is a bit pricey, although there are a couple of PCs in the foyer for the use of guests at no charge. Alternatively, Zinc (restaurant and bar nearby) has free WiFi.

Room Tip: The rooms on the ground floor are swim out rooms which is a lovely little luxury, definitely worth c...

Stayed at the Mantra Aqueous in a One Bedroom Spa Swim Out Apartment and was definitely more than happy with my choice. Location is just on the corner of Macrossan Street the main street of Port Douglas and a short walk to all of the shopping and eateries.

The room was clean on arrival and only a couple of small faults which were not worthy of a complaint. Staff we very friendly and always spoke when walking past reception or bumping into the cleaning staff.

The room is self serviced so you do not have housekeeping banging on your door every 5 minutes however the service is available should you wish your room leaned at cost under 8 nights.

The pool area was quiet and well presented and clean with a BBQ area available. There are a number of pools so everyone is not crammed into the one.

Overall great accommodation and good price

We had a great 4 night stay in June, in a swim out one bedroom apartment.
The location was excellent, within close walking distance to everything. Check in was very easy and efficient which was great as we arrived at 1130pm.
The bedroom and living spaces were great and very comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen could have used a few more utensils, sharp knives etc, not what I would call fully equipped.
The bathroom was nice, but overall needed a bit more attention to cleaning.
We found the reception staff friendly and helpful with the few issues we had come up.
Overall it was a great stay.
We got a great deal that worked out to about $185 a night, not sure it would be worth the full rate for the room.

Room Tip: In hot weather, the swim out rooms would be invaluable. During winter months, the pool was a bit col...
