I've stayed here before, and overall it's an ok place. It's within walking distance to all the local eateries, stores and marina. Last time I stayed here was eight years ago, and upon returning, it looked like absolutely nothing had changed. The lounges were the same creamy chlorine drenched lounges, the carpets looked like they haven't been steam cleaned in...

our rooms are great and reception was great called us early advising our rooms were ready. True wifi is hopeless but my phone service is not great at this location. Others are winging about pool noise, we chose rooms away from the pool. But, why at 7-15 to 8.00am do we get not 1 but 2 lots of garbage trucks...

We recently got a deal through scoopon and it was a very good deal!!! Rooms are modern, clean, balconies, large open plan so great for families. We stayed in a 3brm unit at the back which was great for privacy. Many rooms overlook the pool which i am sure w I uld be loud and not private. Great customer service....

A nice room, but poolside rooms are noisy in the mornings so if you like a sleep in, find a room in Building A. Way too many kids in the pool for my liking. Great location easy walk to the hub of town and all the great restaurants.

Found the staff very helpful. I also like the idea of having your own designated parking space for your car with underground parking (love it). Leave your car parked and walk. The Mantra is situated within walking distance to the Bay, Marina. Cruises and heaps of eating places. The room we had, could do with a ceiling or wall fan...

Well located and probably about the right price for what you get. A few tips. 1. Wifi is hopeless, only good for emails 2. If you book a pool view room, try and get one away from the fountain. Very noisy and as you ,igniting imagine the kids turn it on every 5 minutes. 3. Shocking signal reception if you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just two and a half hours drive North of Sydney is the relaxed seaside village of Nelson Bay and one of the finest resorts on the Central Coast, Mantra Aqua. Mantra Aqua's stylish accommodation includes a selection of spacious, open-plan designed two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses, all featuring large living areas flowing out onto large external balconies. Each apartment and penthouse features beautiful stone bench tops in the kitchen with stainless steel appliances, plasma or LCD TV, DVD player, Foxtel and sound system in the lounge area. The resort features leisure facilities including a 25 metre lagoon pool with cascading waterfall and heated spa, children's play wading area and BBQ areas. Clean, contemporary lines and an open plan layout provide the perfect balance between the surrounding natural environment and the luxuries of resort-style living. The resort is a short five minute stroll to the centre of town or the marina where you will find a vast array of shops, restaurants and cafes. The bowling club and a 27 hole championship golf course are only a few minutes walk from the main gate. Mantra Aqua is the perfect location for a weekend away or relaxing holiday escape. Upon arrival at Mantra Aqua, we will require a valid credit card to be placed on file to cover incidental items including (but not limited to) telephone calls, breakages/damages, excessive cleaning charges and theft. ... more   less
