Good location, good sized accommodation. Nice pool and very easy access to Four Mile Beach. Easy walking distance into Macrossan St (the main street for restaurants etc) and to the Marina for trips out to the reef.

The name can be a bit misleading as the apartments don’t really directly overlook the beach, but there is a good reason. There is a barrier of trees and other vegetation between any hotel and the beach that protects sand blowing inland due to the prevailing winds. But it is just a short walk of about 40 yards (meters) through... More

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment which was more than enough space for our family of four. The location across from the beach, and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Port Douglas is perfect. Staff are friendly and helpful. The apartment did smell a bit musty, but given the humidity in Port Douglas it was probably... More

Having been to Port Douglas a few times and always stayed out at one of the resorts, I wanted to be closer into town this time when I brought some friends from the US up to experience Far North Queensland for a few days. The Mandalay apartments were perfect - tucked away on a quiet street, a block off the... More

We stayed at the Mandalay for 9 nights at the end of our 4 week Australian holiday and very pleased that we had chosen a very comfortable and well located appartment resort. These appartments are less than a minute from the beach and a 5 minute walk or slightly longer "stroll" (for 2 teenage girls) from the top of Macrossan... More

We stayed at the Mandalay for 3 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. There were four of us and we stayed in a 3 bed apartment on the second floor. The only problem was carrying our heavy cases up the two flights of stairs, but once up there the apartment was well equipped and very clean. The master bedroom... More

Recently spent 8 nights at Mandalay Port Douglas. Superb location with spacious rooms, living areas and balcony! 5 minute walk to Main Street and right on the beach and 2 minute walk to patrolled swimming area. Great BBQ facilities along side tennis court. Staff very friendly and accommodating . Already looking to book next year!

I really wanted to give this apartment accommodation 4 stars, I really did, however in comparison to the many other similar places I have stayed at around the world, it does fall short. I am currently in apartment 5. It is a lovely apartment. Up to date furniture, huge lounge with an equally huge and comfortable coach, new kitchen, 2... More

We are very pleased you liked our apartments, our housekeeping staff work extremely hard to maintain a high quality. The bonus of self catering apartments is the size an quality for the price you pay versus a hotel room. We do provide daily service if requested by our guests. We apologize for the 'herd of elephants' above you, had we... More

This is a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay. The apartments are spotlessly clean and spacious. They are well kitted out, with all necessary amenities - the washing machine and tumble dryer were particularly welcome. The location is excellent - a quick walk to the beach and about five minutes walk into the town. The staff were very helpful,... More

Stayed here for 7 nights in a two bedroom garden view apartment. It was right next to the second pool and tennis court. A quiet location as we mostly had that pool to ourselves and felt like it was our private pool most of the time! The apartment itself was OK in size as we have two small children. But... More
