Just returned from a 5 night stay at the beautiful Mandalay luxury apartments in Port Douglas. A little early for check-in but nothing was too much of a problem for the staff, who walked us up a flight of stairs and showed us to our apartment which was cool, immaculate and spacious - lovely large outdoor balcony that looked out...

We had a 3 bedroom apartment. We thought beach front was just that, but it's really a play on words. You can't see the sea as there is a road and quite a few meters of vegetation so do not get fooled. You are not on the "real beachfront". However we found the apartments in a nice spot. 5 minutes...

Perfect for a weekend stay (or longer) in Port Douglas. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Definitely the most spacious holiday apartment I have ever seen and beautifully decorated and appointed. Large outdoor patio with heaps of loungers and seating. Centrally located and close to the beach. Highly recommended. Will definitely stay again.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in April. The staff are superb. So friendly, helpful, knowledgable and eager to help us plan our activities and book restaurants. Definitely recommend having a chat with Tina before booking anything - she knows everything about Port Douglas. She is absolutely an asset to the resort. They also let us have... More

Fabulously equipped and furnished apartment with private space outside for sunbathing or sitting in the shade. Full kitchen and huge fridge. 10 min walk to Main Street of town for shops and restaurants. Staff friendly and helpful. 1 min walk on to beach which is across the road. Wifi though is terrible, we paid 60 dollars for a week but... More

My two friends and I stayed in one of the Mandalay appartments for four nights recently and were overwelmed by the welcome and helpfulness of the staff; in particular Denise and Tina. They were most helpful and friendly and ensured our stay was perfect. The appartment itself had all mod-cons; a welcome fruit basket; and a lovely large balcony. We... More

First impression is a good one. Looks impressive from outside and clean inside. Our three bedroom apartment was comfortable for family of five. The apartment had everything you could need. The location is great, right opposite the beach and close enough to the main strip. Considering the price you pay I was disappointed that you had to pay for beach... More

We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom apartment with it's own laundry room. The rooms were beautifully furnished, and very clean. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook a meal, if you wanted to. To our surprise we opened the fridge to find an enormous bowl of fresh fruit, such a lovely thought and much appreciated. The... More

This is a great place for families. Our 2 BR/2 Bath spacious apartment had all the conveniences of home. We loved breakfast on our patio and also had a barbecue one night (grills are by the tennis court). The front desk staff is fantastic - helped us re-book a canceled tour and provided helpful recommendations. We also liked having the... More
