I have not stayed at PD Mantra but have stayed at numerous other Mantra resorts and have always enjoyed them. They are usually good value, modern and comfortable.

Hopefully, other TA members can assist you.

We stayed at the Aqueous about 3 years ago. Family of four in a 2 bed lockoff apartment (1 bed apartment + adjoining studio apartment).

The good:

Spa baths on the balcony.

Four pools - 2 each side of the building.

Reasonable fit out of apartment.

Very close to town (main street is just around the corner).

The not so good:

As it is "in town" is doesn't have any grounds to speak of. It is a long narrow building with the pools more or less taking up all the room on either side of the building.


The room/s we had a some views back to the mountains (not spectacular but OK).

The beach is about 1 block away (maybe 100-200 metres).

There are lots of restaurants in town.

The resort itself doesn't strike me immediately as a honeymoon destination.

Hope this helps.

Suffice it to say I was less than impressed with Mantra Aqueous on Port, see my review:


There's really nothing spectacular about this "resort", although the location is very convenient for restaurants and bars.

But if it's your honeymoon I would go for something better. I certainly wouldn't return to Mantra Aqueous on Port.

Have a search on this site for some good alternatives. The reviews are very handy.
