We had a wonderful time in Port Douglas- the Port Sea was not the greatest Mantra we have stayed at -took us a while to get used to the no servicing of the rooms - you just go to reception and collect any clean towels etc yourself but quite understand they are trying to make holidays affordable- plus Port Douglas is pretty laid back!!!!The main lagoon pool was quite dirty but the rest of the pools were fine- and if you don't have kids the other pools are the place to be anyway! Drinks at the pool bar were expensive- and it closes at 5pm so that was a negative! Breakfast was a bit ordinary - just a continental breakfast but no variety so over a week we got a bit over it. The staff were fabulous - really friendly and helpful. Easy walk into the town, beach at the back door - very easy walk down along the beach to the surf club - now there is a good happy hour!!We would go back.
