There were 5 of us staying in a 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom apartment. The master bedroom was especially spacious. The other 2 bedrooms both had comfy queen-sized beds. Main bathroom was very large with plenty of vanity space and an extra long mirror. A well-equipped cupboard laundry was also located in the main bathroom. The only downfall was lack...

We spent 3 nights at Nelson Bay Mantra Aqua. Facilities are spacious & clean & location is very central, easy walking distance to shops, restaurants & the Marina. Our room overlooked the pool and was very noisy as there were many children in the pool at all hours. Good for a family or group holiday... not so suitable for couples....

Many thanks for your comprehensive review. Time out before the silly season is never a bad idea! The pool is a hive of happy activity at most times of the year, our Superior apartments are removed from the immediate noise though, so a great option for couples. Guests are always welcome to call us to discuss the best option for...

We loved our little vacay here away from the hussle and bussle of the city life. Warm friendly welcome which is also a great start. Stayed in a 2 bedroom garden apartment away from the noise of the very popular swimming bbq area. Apartment was in a few places a tad bit dusty and the lounge still had sand on...

My family and I decided to book a 3 bedroom apartment for 2 nights. Upon entering the rooms were a little dark. The queen beds in all of the rooms were in fact two large singles pushed together which made sleeping very uncomfortable as there was this hard gap in the middle. Other than that everything else was good, kitchen...

It sounds as if you may have been here in winter? The pool is most certainly open for business and is beautifully warm. Hopefully you are planning your next stay as I respond. The 3 bedroom Resort View may suit you best for your next stay, if you prefer a view and more sunshine in the apartment. Our beds are...

We stayed here for the weekend, we had a great large room with full kitchen, two bathrooms and a king bed. Great for long stays. We did stay at the pool level in building C and it was quite noisy as the kiddies love love love the pool! So from 7am you can hear the kids run up the corridor...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just two and a half hours drive North of Sydney is the relaxed seaside village of Nelson Bay and one of the finest resorts on the Central Coast, Mantra Aqua. Mantra Aqua's stylish accommodation includes a selection of spacious, open-plan designed two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses, all featuring large living areas flowing out onto large external balconies. Each apartment and penthouse features beautiful stone bench tops in the kitchen with stainless steel appliances, plasma or LCD TV, DVD player, Foxtel and sound system in the lounge area. The resort features leisure facilities including a 25 metre lagoon pool with cascading waterfall and heated spa, children's play wading area and BBQ areas. Clean, contemporary lines and an open plan layout provide the perfect balance between the surrounding natural environment and the luxuries of resort-style living. The resort is a short five minute stroll to the centre of town or the marina where you will find a vast array of shops, restaurants and cafes. The bowling club and a 27 hole championship golf course are only a few minutes walk from the main gate. Mantra Aqua is the perfect location for a weekend away or relaxing holiday escape. Upon arrival at Mantra Aqua, we will require a valid credit card to be placed on file to cover incidental items including (but not limited to) telephone calls, breakages/damages, excessive cleaning charges and theft. ... more   less
