“Spacious apartments, Clean and convienent”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Can get noisy at times, very clean rooms , walking distance to shops. Parking is underneath the building, great security at entrances . Slow WIFI, get the password at reception.
Just be careful NOT to get an apt. on the main floor rear, its really in the basement with little
sun lite peeking through, staring at a stone wall outside the windows, just a bit depressing.

We stayed in two 3 bedroom apartments on a girls golfing holiday. The rooms were spacious with well equipped kitchens. plenty of room to sit with seven of us for drinks at night. We could walk most places we wanted to go. Some lovely choices of restaurants and some great golf courses within easy drive.

Room Tip: We had 2 3 bedrooms that were in easy access to each other by a set of stairs. Fabulous holiday.

Great apartment in an excellent location. We stayed in a 2 bedroom superior apartment for 3 nights. The rooms were very spacious, modern and clean. The great kitchen was very well equipped and there was also a laundry and a balcony overlooking the pool. Mantra Aqua is within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops and the marina, but being at the end of a dead-end street it was also very quiet. Reception staff were all very friendly. We were lucky enough to have bought a coupon deal on the net which made it very affordable.

My wife & I have just had a two night stay for a weekend getaway. We had a standard two bedroom apartment that we found was very spacious with a very well equipped kitchen. The grounds were immaculate & the staff were very friendly. Mantra Aqua is in a very quiet area & just a short walk down to the shops & cafes / restaurants & to the d'ALBORA MARINAS. We will certainly be going back to Mantra Aqua in the future.

These apartments are spacious and was a pleasure to cook in the well equipped kitchen which provided everything you needed. Well worth while to upgrade to the superior 2 bed apartment for only ten dollars per night extra. Ideal location, ten minutes walk down to the harbour. Pool and spa excellent.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the superior apartment

Staying for the second time in this great resort, it was just a perfect as our first experience six months earlier.....we have had a summer and winter experience at this resort, both were fantastic.

We (four mature adults) stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment which was very clean and comfortable. It had a very well quipped kitchen including a dishwasher and all of the conveniences one would expect in a holiday rental including washing machine and clothes dryer.

Air conditioning was complimented by ceiling fans in both bedrooms, the apartment was spacious and comfortably furnished with a huge balcony overlooking the pool and bbq area, there's even a small gym for those gym junkies who need a fix.

Located within walking distance to cafes, restaurants, D'Alboras Marina, boutiques and beaches and just a short drive to look-outs, the mysterious sand dunes and the many beautiful surrounding bays. Great value, perfect for a summer or winter break just a couple of hours drive from Sydney - awesome experience.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of resort would be quieter in summer when the pool is utilised into the evenings.

We are both in our 60's and enjoyed our three night midweek break in a clean and well maintained two bedroom apartment. The open plan kitchen was very well equipped but the only items that we used was the electric kettle, wine glasses and the small coffee mugs. I would have liked to be able to use either of the supplied carving or slicing knives but they were so blunt that they would not even cut through oranges or lemons. Fortunately I had a pen knife in the car which was parked in the reserved undercover car park. Another other complaint we had was that although the lounge suite seamed new, it was the most uncomfortable thing to sit on. Fortunately there was a second TV in the master bedroom. The only other problem with the unit was that although both of the bathrooms had air vents in a ceilings, there were no fans, that turned on with the lights, so the mirrors steamed up very quickly. The good points were the fact that the units are only a five minute walk from the shops and all eating places and the staff were very good at their job. I was very pleased that they up-sold us to a unit that overlooked the pool and Nelson Bay as some of the units have brick walls as an outlook. Make sure, if the stay at these units, that you do not stay in any of the units which are near the main gate which is closed between 7pm and 6am for safety reasons, so anyone wanting to enter or leave has to use their "swipe" card and the gate makes quite a racket..

Room Tip: Stay in units on the second or third floors which over look the pool and Nelson Bay. Don't stay...
