Our apartment was spotless and everything was of a very high standard including the furniture, crockery and kitchen appliances. We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment and the ensuite had a Jacuzzi bath and a walk in shower. The main pool was lovely and we had it almost to ourselves in March. The location is very good too opposite... More

The apartments were spacious and really well appointed. The staff were really friendly, helpful and efficient and we booked all our excursions and... More

Our apartment had a great outdoor day bed. Prefect spot for relaxing with a book. The children loved the pool! The gardens and surrounds were immaculate. Great... More

This place was just gorgeous, beautifully designed and clean. It was so close to the town and the beach that we didn't need a car at all. Mandalay was certainly not pompous looking at all, but gorgeously styled and maintained second to none. We loved the fact that we could get up when we felt like it, could make our... More

Fantastic apartment, a short walk to 4 mile beach, beware the stingers in the water! The walk into town is fine and takes about ten minutes. Having to pay for wifi is an inconvenience, plus it was slow so only for essentials. Hiring a bike from the staff was easy and they have a large underground car park out of... More

We rented a 3Br apartment that faced Four Mile beach (we had a view of the Mangrove but could feel the Ocean Air). The unit was well laid out, and well-appointed with every kitchen gadget and amenity you could want. Meant that coffee, breakfasts and lunches were easily arranged from provisions supplied by one of the two nearby grocery stores.... More
