After reading previous negative reviews, i will say that we were a bit hesitant about staying here. But we need not have worried.
Mantra Aqueous was perfect.
The location (just off Macrossan st) was ideal. It was just a few metres walk to shops/cafe's/restaurants and the beach.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. They made all activities bookings free of charge. Nothing was too much trouble. The only issue was the $200 security deposit which we were told would only be held for a few days, not our entire stay.
We had a hotel spa room at the far end of the top level, which meant there was limited noise disruption. Our room and balcony spa were both clean and tidy and although the room itself was fairly small, the bathroom and shower were very spacious.
The grounds staff were very efficient, cleaning the bbq's, pools, gardens and outdoor surrounds every morning without fail.
We did not spend a great amount of time in the hotel itself as we were always up early, out and about for most of the day.
So If you are coming on holiday to relax and enjoy the resort style atmosphere (and all the features that will see you confined to the hotel for the majority of your time away), then this is not the place for you. There are many other places in Port Douglas that offer day spas, restaurants and bars onsite that would better suit those who prefer not to venture out.
Overall it was a very enjoyable stay. We will definitely be going back!
