Great location just across from patrolled beach. Very helpful staff, comfortable beds and excellent amenities. The apartment had everything one could need including a coffee machine. My only slight negative was that , although the huge cane couch looked great, it was not the most comfortable couch I have experienced. A minor problem only as the day bed on the... More

Staying at the Mandalay currently and I have never been to port Douglas before and the staff booked all my activities and getting to and from the airport. The pool was a perfect temperature and the beach was 2mins away with a great walkway directly to it. The room was amazing and lots of room and it felt like home... More

We stayed for 6 nights in a very comfortable 3 bedroomed apartment. We were looking for some relaxation, and certainly got it. Our apartment was large, comfortably furnished, with every thing we needed. So close to beach and town was a bonus and we were able to walk everywhere. Would definitely stay again. Recommended.

What a fantastic stay. We were welcomed so very warmly by Denise which set the tone for the whole holiday. The apartment was huge and well positioned for us in the thick of things. We overlooked the pool so it was noisy during the day but, I must say, most of the noise was from our 3 children! If you... More

Hi Cathy & Gang, Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. I have passed it onto Yvan also. It was a pleasure having you and your family stay with us, the kids were always gorgeous & perfectly mannered & probably not the noisy ones at the pool as you suggest...... I am sorry I missed you at your departure... More

I stayed in a 3bedroom apartment with family as it was my sisters wedding and I have not been happier,the rooms were better than I had hoped for in every way. Very clean and lots of room to move around with excellent service from staff to help with anything we needed. The beach is so close and the pool was... More

It was a wonderful experience. We stayed with family from 2 to 9 July 2015. The beach is 5 minutes and nearest town is also 5 minutes. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was lovely with full kitchen amenities. I regret that we stayed the last 4 days at another resort. The location definitely is a hit.

We were greeted and shown to our ground floor room on the eastern side of the complex. Accommodation is modern, spacious and clean. Everything needed was available. The room is adjacent to the pool, which is well designed for all ages, and an easy walk across the road, over the dune and onto the beach. So convenient! On a couple... More

We stayed at Mandalay for a week during 2-9th July. We were greeted by Colleen at reception and assisted to 2 Bedroom beachfront apartment. Colleen was so very helpful, always willing to assist with any queries and helped us to plan our local trips. Denise guided us to a nice restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday. The beach is just... More

We stayed for 10 days at Mandalay and it was wonderful - the location, the access to the beach, the beautiful apartment and facilities, and the amazing staff. We were given an upgrade which was such a bonus (from a 2 bedroom to 3 bedroom apartment) so my children had more room to spread out and enjoy their own walk... More
