Mantra In The Village

Recent guest reviews

Staying for a very special wedding. Location very handy to wedding venue, shops and restaurants. Parking available and free....a bonus!! Unit was spacious, living area comfortable, bed not so much! Reception staff not located on-site making for a very impersonal experience.

My wife & I can't understand some of the negative remarks we read about this Mantra property before we arrived - for us, our stay was nothing but positive! a) the lift from their underground car park took us straight to our floor - no lugging heavy suitcases up stairs etc. b) our room (hotel style bedroom, with balcony) was spacious with a large bathroom plus basic kitchen facilities including a coffee machine, c) exceptionally clean, d) laundry facilities, e) small pool with BBQ - you can actually go to their sister property (Heritage) nearly next door & use their larger pools etc.. f) the afterhours booking system worked very well with our instructions & keys left in an easily accessible safe in the unattended foyer, g) finally - you are in the heart of shopping & restaurants - don't have to use your car except for sight seeing.

Room small car park not easy to get into if you have a large car no onsite manager most of the time location was good and was easy to access the main street of Port Douglas to all of the food outlets & pubs.

Often stay with the Mantra group & the Mantra Village is very relaxing. The rooms were clean and the beds are always comfortable. We had a kitchenette in our room but no table to sit at and eat, just outside chairs. The staff are friendly and check in was simple. We'll be back.

We arrived at 6.20pm and found the door from the car park to reception locked I had to google the hotels number to ask how to locate reception. I was put through to an after hours service who was not based on site and had no knowledge of the hotel other than an address. We finally found our way to reception where we had to again call another number be directed to a safe to get our room keys. The hotel is in a great location just moments from the Main Street and the rooms are ok.

Highly recommend. Location was just perfect. The room was very roomy and of high quality. Especially loved the large spa bath on the verandah. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again and highly recommend.

We had a great time at Mantra. The location is great the tools are huge and the staff were very friendly. We came on a quiet period in port Douglas and were very lucky to have the pool to ourselves at times. Would highly recommend and will definitely return again.

Stayed here a few times. Great spot. Beds are not the best, sore backs after waking up. Reception not always open so have to go next door for pool towels ect Otherwise, will be looking to book this, or mantra heritage next door(better pool) next time

Good points - good location, centre of town and on the hill slightly towards the marina (which is c5 mins walk away). However, PD is pretty small so anywhere on or just off the main drag is perfectly fine. decent ish pool but we were slightly off season so had the place to myself one day. large rooms (we were in room 18) with plenty of space. Bad points - no one on reception when we arrived, you have to walk around the corner to Mantra Heritage to do anything. that closes at 6pm so we were lucky we arrived beforehand. I only saw one person at the desk in 4 days which really isn't acceptable. some slightly damage to cupboards etc in the rooms, bathrooms only separated by a sliding door with venetian blinds which can be a bit close if you are shy/not a couple. no free wifi.

Mantra in the village ideally situated for browsing and shopping, dining out and takeaways, and comfortable walking distance to Reef Marina, (with various attractions), Sugar Wharf, St. Marys by the Sea, Sunday Market, Esplanade parks and little beaches, trek to the lookout (for the very fit) and convenience of banks and post office. At least 7 days needed to check out reef, Cape Trib, Mossman and beautiful surrounding areas.
