“Perfect for couples”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

My partner and I stayed here for 10 days at the end of June. We loved our time here and thought it was everything we needed. The apartment seemed modern but not over the top fancy. Our apartment was on the top (third floor), had a secluded spa on the deck and overlooked the lagoon pools below. I can't say there were any down-sides to our stay, except we faced the back of the building block on the main street (restaurants etc.) and the extractor fan noise was quite loud. Additionally, every morning a recycling truck collected the glass which was very loud - but this isn't the hotel's issue as such. The location was excellent being on the corner of the main street with all the shops and restaurants and also a 5 minute walk from the gorgeous beach. Would definitely come back and recommend to couples or families with young children.

Room Tip: Rooms on the main street side are nosier. Rooms on bottom floor have access to pool directly from r...

Excellent facilities and location.
Rooms and pools are just what we wanted. Location means you can walk to everything but remains quiet at night. Cannot fault the helpful and friendly staff , we enjoyed our stay and plan to return.
What is with the car park enterance, it is at set up for right hand side driving as per the USA. Not normal for aust and a bit confusing

We recently spent 5 days in a hotel spa room (all rooms overlook the pool). Great location for the beach and village shops and restaurants. Reception staff extremely helpful with tour bookings and general information. They were a pleasure to deal with. Well maintained facilities, clean and comfortable rooms. We will certainly be back

this hotel is very centrally located to the main street. The rooms are a little dated but we had one that opened out to the pool which was lovely. The staff at the desk were very helpful with booking tourist attractions and that made things very easy. Good hotel for families being self contained

On arrival I was greeted by friendly desk service and this continued for my five day stay. I enjoyed the proximity of the hotel to the main shopping strip and the beach. It was close to everything, in particular fine restaurants. The room I stayed in was very comfortable with a lovely bathroom and spa on the balcony. The small kitchen came in handy too. I had an enjoyable stay!!!

Room Tip: Choose room on the lower floor if you want to access the pool from your room.

Spent a wonderful 4 nights in the Mantra Aqueous in Port Douglas. The room was stunning. A large apartment with a clean and spacious ensuite. A large balcony overlooking the pool area fitted with a spa bath. Excellent kitchen facilities complete with man's best friend - a dishwasher. Air conditioning and fans all worked well to help this poor Kiwi cope with the heat!
All in all - a great stay. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel is well located with the port and beach and centre of town with some fabulous restaurants all a short walk away. Beautiful pool areas on both sides of the hotel and everything in pristine condition. Definitely a 5 star from me.

We stayed here for seven nights. When I booked Mantra Aqueous, not knowing Port Douglas at all, I was a little dubious, not knowing if it was the right location. When we arrived, we were thrilled at the location - 2 minute walk to the beach, 1 minute walk to the main shopping street, 4 minutes to supermarket, 10 minutes to the Marina. Handy to everywhere.

Our room was awesome - 9A was at the end of the pool and we had a really big patio area, with the spa and easy access to the pool. Washing machine, dryer, decent bathroom, great kitchenette.

We look forward to coming back, and now knowing the location, would definitely not change - would happily stay here again.

Staff were helpful with suggestions of what activities to do.

Pool was great with my daughter spending a lot of time here - although the spa function of the pool closest to us wasn't working, there were the other three pools you could have used if you wanted the spa part.

Fans and Air Cons in the bedroom and lounge room.

Highly recommended.
