Needs to be refurbished . Aircon broke. Tap was broken. Just very old. Would not recommend to anybody. Guests were stuck up and rude. I know places have no smoking rules. But would of been nice to sit on your own verandah and relax with a drink and a ciggarette instead of sitting out the front like an outcast with...

My recent visit to Portsea Mantra was my third stay. I have stayed each time as a part of a group and have only the best experiences each time! This time I must say stood out and I assume it is under a new manager as it was extremely well run and a pleasure to stay. I was a little...

Once again enjoyed the location, the cleanliness of the resort and the helpful nature of the staff. The breakfast inclusion is a great idea with the food being fresh and healthy. It handy location to 4 mile beach and the main shopping area are added attractions of the Portsea Mantra.

Very happy with room. Will get room with kitchen next time. Clean, staff wonderful. Our only gripe is the smokers sitting on park bench on way to breakfast. Very unpleasant, move them somewhere else. Could actually smell the smoke when turned the corner into reception area.

Overall, we had a great stay at the Mantra PortSea. The venue and facilities - especially the lagoon pool and swim up bar - were great. Service was always spot on - very helpful and friendly. Cleanliness was generally very good, but it would have been great to have bins emptied in our rooms more regularly - or at least...

My partner and I chose to stay in the Mantra Portsea for a holiday before my brother's wedding in Port Douglas, knowing a few guests were also staying there. We booked a hotel room for $170 per night thinking this would be nice enough for our 10 nights in Port Douglas. For $170 per night I must say it was...

If you want comfort and quiet, this is not the place for you. If you seek to use your elbows to force your way toward the food at breakfast, this is the place for you.if you love the echo's of everyone around the pool talking, then this is for you.

Great location, just a short stroll to four mile beach and fifteen minutes walk to town. The resort was well maintained with fantastic lagoon pool and spa surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens. Friendly and professional staff, great place for families and couples.
