Stayed here for a few nights getaway, great spot, away from town yet only a easy short stroll into town, shops and waterfront. The units are very spacious, friendly staff, great pool area. Our handle was about to fall off and they come and fixed it straight away

The property is well located being within walking distance of the Nelson Bay shops and restaurants. Our 2 bedroom apartment was adequate for a short stay but the property fell short of our expectations. Only a few Foxtel channels were available and the internet connection in our room #76 was frustratingly intermittent. Our allotted car space was at the farthest... More

This resort is not for a quiet get a way. The resort read well on the web site and it had all the amenities we wanted. Three bedrooms, balcony, parking, pool, and close to shops. The apartment was well appointed, and apart from the bedrooms being hot as they are not air conditioned it was good value for money.The staff... More

We stayed just one night at the Mantra Aqua Resort Nelson Bay on our way home to Sydney from a weekend getaway at the Hunter Valley. We found our split-level penthouse apartment ultra-modern and luxurios with 3BR 3.5bath. The Receptionists were hospitable and welcoming despite initially giving us an incorrect suite from what we booked (single level vs split-level) which... More

After 5 nights at the Mantra Aqua Nelson Bay I am so glad to be home. With such high expectations (and having fully paid prior to our arrival) my family and I were really let down.

Would highly recommend these apartments. Staff were helpful, apartments beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Had a meal in a Bowling Club 5 minutes from the apartments, tremendous value. Lovely location can't be faulted.
