Mandalay Beach front apartments, Port Douglas Spent five nights at the Mandalay Beach Front Apartments during our 2015 Australia trip. The apartments are in a great location, just a very short stroll across a little lane to the Four Mile beach, and no more than five minutes walk into the main shopping and eating area of Port Douglas. We arrived... More

My husband and I went with my sister and sister-in-law for 6 days. We had a fabulous three bedroom apartment which was on the second floor (no lifts). The apartment was spacious, well furnished and very clean. The amenities in the apartment were excellent. However I believed that they are privately owned, so I am not sure if all the... More

We LOVED our stay at the Mandalay. Raelene and Denise basically saved our vacation. My husband and I had arrived in Cairns and it was not what we had expected. We were desperate and at 6:00am I called Mandalay due to its high TripAdvisor ranking and its location to the beach and town. I woke Raelene but she was so... More

Excellent place to stay for Americans/ Europeans/ etc. Check in is easy, personable, unpretentious--, not like a hotel at all. All rooms are suites. All staff, especially the front entd receptionist/concierge, etc. from maids, managers, concierge, etc. are top notch, providing Ritz Carlton/Four Seasons quality service without the fluff. You can literally fly in for a few days without any... More

I selected this from Trip Advisor reviews. The staff was always so helpful whenever I contacted them before our arrival. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a lovely view and I was amazed when I walked into this beautifully appointed apartment. It was very spacious and the amenities were super. The pictures on Trip Advisor didn't do justice to the... More

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
