“Great Pool, Location, Lagoon Bar and Very Quiet”
Reviewed 15 July 2010

Stayed at this hotel for 10 days during the July holidays. Our room was right next to the path to the beach, 10 second walk from the main pool, and the other pool was right outside our deck. The room was nice but a little small. It was fine for a family of 4.
The room was pretty clean, Kitchen very small however.
The Lagoon pool was great. I enjoyed some drinks there.
Overall, i will return again and would recommend this to others!

To bad the weather wasn't great :(

We were told by our local travel agency this was a good average family hotel, mostly recommended for the pool area. It positively surprised us to be a very comfortable place, good, spacy room with a functional kitchen, spa bath and a nice terasse. The pool area was exactly what our boy at ten wished for, not crowded, plenty sunbeds and the staff was friendly and positive. Very close to four mile beach and walking distance to shopping. Negative that there was no real dinner option, only the pool bar with limited supply of junk food. But with many restaurants in close vicinity not a real problem. Absolutely recommended.

Just returned from 8 days at Mantra Portsea -weather unfortunately average (warm but windy) but the Portsea accommodation was very comfortable and the staff were very helpful.Of course it is smallish so they aren't flat out but the reception team couldn't be faulted and, as well as being knowledgable, actually seemed to enjoy imparting their recommendations/help. Pool complex great for families. Close to the beach and a comfortable 15minute walk (or bus every 15 minutes) into the main street. Be back in a heartbeat and I am not easily pleased. Great value. We had a mid term room clean and the guy spent nearly 90 minutes - VERY thorough indeed!

We loved Port Sea! Great location, close to the beach, and a short stroll to the main shopping area, close to everything. Rooms were clean and private with a great atmosphere.

Our holiday at Port Sea was everything we wanted and more. We really enjoyed the huge pool, especially the swim-up bar. We will be back to enjoy even more, especially the cocktails, glorious.

My partner and I stayed here in April this year. The rooms were small, you could barely walk around the bed, the lounge was only large enough to sit in and the bathroom allowed not much room to place your toiletries. The hanging space for clothing was so small - the smallest I have EVER seen. Not to mention the tiny bugs crawling on the walls - literally 100's of tiny bugs on the wall. The pool area was disappointing - looks great on their website but a let down in reality. My partner and I checked out 2 hours after checking-in and went to Macrossan Street and found cheaper and better accommodation! Please do yourself a favour and do not stay in the tiny, shabby and unpleasant hotel - especially when there's so much more and better and cheaper down in the heart of Port Douglas where you'll also be close everything.
