The Staff at Mantra Portsea were welcoming and friendly. The rooms were clean and all had a balcony with good view of the lagoon. Ours even had a kitchenette. Guests need to have their own transport to get to the Centre of Port Douglas, restaurants and The Marina

Went in July and really needed a warm break as the weather has been terrible at home. Nobody cleaned our room the entire time we were there and got no new towels. Disappointed the pool was solar heated

The staff were wonderful, very helpful and accommodating, and the rooms very clean and a good size. The resort was in a great location, so I highly recommend this resort for a stay in Port Douglas. Was a great base for a relaxing trip.
