Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First 3 days was not happy at all, very small hotel room. People walking past able to see into the room unless you had the shutters shut then its like a cell. Last 2 days a beautiful 1 bed apartment with balcony overlooking the sea and Sunday market area. This was the first time as platinum members we had not received an upgrade which was disappointing. We were there for a wedding being the Groom's parents which l had explained prior to arriving, then bumping to other people who had been upgraded. On the plus side this property was centrally located close to the marina, Sunday markets and St Marys by the Sea. Staff were great.

The hotel is in a great location, close to shops, restaurants and the beach. After hours' checkin was quick and easy. Everything was clean, good toiletries, quality linen. That's the good news! Now the not-so-good... The website does alert you to the fact that the rooms are small but they are REALLY tiny! And there is no lift, so three flights of stairs from the carpark to the top floor, although this is stated clearly on the website. The rooms are not serviced daily, and there is no crockery/cutlery so not easy if you want to have a takeaway meal in the room (anyway you would have to eat it on your lap, sitting on the bed - no other option!). And at nearly $300 per night way over-priced. There was a little bit of noise from the pub next door, and a bit more from the common verandah as people came and went late at night. The hotel would be fine for an overnight stay but definitely not a top pick for a week's holiday.

We stayed 9 nights in the King spa suite. The suite was terrific with everything we needed. The friendly night-life gets pretty loud at times, but being able to walk everywhere still makes this a great location. Staff were very friendly and eager to accommodate any simple request. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Great location, right on the main street, walking distance to most attractions, restaurants and shops We booked for our wedding weekend, was a perfect room for such an occasion. It had a nice big balcony, a view, and character, not just a standard hotel room style. No lift which could hinder some people. 2 flights of stairs for us, but no problems for us. Noisy at night if doors to balcony left open - easily fixed by shutting them. Would recommend this if you have a wedding to attend at St Marys by the Sea chapel or the Sugarwharf as it is just across the road, walking distance.

Unfortunately our stay at the Manta has been more than disappointing. The rooms and TV’s were very small and we had very bad TV reception. The property was not staffed and we had difficulty reporting a fault with our air conditioning. When we did finally report it, we had to call back three times before they said they had fixed it. Turns out, it wasn’t fixed. We woke during the night to water from the air conditioner leaking and spraying over our bed and face. We had to move the bed to find that water was and had been running down the wall for some time. The wall was dirty and stained. We have stayed in many different places in Port Douglas before and never had such a disappointing experience. On top of all that, our room was not served for the 6 days that we stayed. We were forced to buy our own toilet paper and additional soap. My daughter, who was staying for an additional 2 nights was also refused room servicing, which was only supplied after I rang and complained. I will never stay with Manta again.

Such a great location, everything is all within walking distance. The standard of our room and ammenities was well finished. Also the whole town is buzzing again with tourists. All the restaurants in town are open again, and all within a 5 minute walk. Would definitely recommend this location for anyone looking for a great place to relax and unwind.

This suite hotel is in the heart of Port Douglas with easy access to all the restaurants, bars and attractions of Part Douglas. The suite we had was clean and comfortable with plenty of space, we didnt cook but I am sure that we could have done easily. Interestingly we had room 201 and while we could hear the noise from outside it wasn't an issue and we certainly didnt hear the Iron Bar below. They really need to fix the baggage lift as it seems to have been out of action for over 2 years. There appears to be no access at all for those with mobility impairments.
