We just had a 3 night stay here after spending a week in Cairns. With a young family I wish we had come here earlier. The hotel was lovely and the rooms were very nice. We were a little worried about what we were coming to after reading some negative reviews. In my opinion you would have to very fussy...

Great location The Mantra is a short walk 15 minutes to shopping and restaurants, a 5 minute walk to the four mile beach, poolside rooms offer a very pleasant experience for young families and the buffet continental breakfast is good value, free undercover parking and very close to the wharf where the big cruisers leave for the barrier reef. I...

Not suitable for seniors having to take heavy luggage up and down stairs. No lift. Self service laundry to wash and dry room towels. Good for young families but I would not recommend it to seniors. Rated 4 star but I would say 3.

I would advise the higher management of Mantra to visit hotels in south east Asia e.g. Kuala Lumpur compare price and services! Most hotels will have wifi service given free. Rooms will be cleaned daily. etc. etc. etc.

Rooms not serviced, no mini bar either. Rooms are dated with old furniture. There's not enough staff. You only see them at reception and in the pool bar (only opened for 2 hours) Pool is lovely! Reception is beautiful. Just need to update and provide more services

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights in April 2017 in a one bed studio. Very disappointed to walk into the room, especially for what we were paying. It's not worth the price at all. It looks nothing like the photos. The main thing was that it was unclean, very grubby sofas and disgusting bedspread, stains on the...

The hotel was clean but the room smelt mouldy & musty. There was little bits of rubbish in the shower. The hot water took a really long time to warm up. Pool bar only open 2.30pm - 4.30pm. Staff were friendly. Restaurant only serves breakfast, which we didn't try because it was only continental - no hot buffet breakfast. No...

Really enjoyed our stay, loved the pool and wet bar. Dual key appt very comfortable. Staff very helpful. Relaxation massages at the spa were a hit as were the freshly made pancakes in the breakfast room.

A reasonably priced apartment that was clean and tidy. Service desk staff were friendly and helpful. For a longer stay with a family of 4 the need to obtain additional toiletry and kitchen items was inconvenient. Items supplied began to run out mid stay and while additional supplies could be picked up from reception, it was inconvenient to go and...

We stayed here with 3 other families (so 8 kids under 10 years and 8 adults) and had a two bedroom apartment each. Checkin was easy. The apartments were quite clean and actually well stocked. The kids LOVED the lagoon pool and it's actually quite safe as it is not very deep. If you want adult time there is a...

At Mantra PortSea there are almost too many relaxation choices, there are three swimming pools with the large central lagoon featuring a swim-up pool bar with water slide, spas and waterfalls surrounded by magnificent Golden Canes and vivid Haliconias. For activity-seekers there is a fully-equipped gymnasium and tennis court. The PortSea Massage & Beauty Day Spa offers plenty of opportunity for pampering and relaxation with a full range of massage and beauty treatments. Guest services include baby sitting services, a guest laundry, undercover car parking, an internet room, arrival and departure lounge plus our booking services can organise tour bookings to the reef, rainforest and other local attractions.

All hotel rooms, studios and apartments feature air-conditioning, ceiling fans, flat screen TV, DVD player, movies on demand, mini-bar on request and tea and coffee making facilities.

Tropical North Queensland is famous for the reef, rainforest and numerous adventure activities that can be undertaken.
