It has taken me a few weeks since staying to write this review. It is not often that I disagree with other tripadvisor reviews - but in this case I really think that a '5' rating of this property is a stretch. Have a look at some of the less favorable reviews and think twice before booking. As a family... More

We stayed with our 3 children in 3 bedroom apartment very large. Each bedroom has its own dressing and main bedroom has in-room bathroom! Great kitchen and large living room with balcony where we could eat each meal. The pool was heated therefore a blast for the kids! We could walk to the beach very easily and everywhere in town...

For location and luxury Mandalay's is hard to beat. My wife and two teenage sons stayed at Mandalay's Port Douglas August 11-18, 2015 in a 3 bedroom apartment and had the best beach vacation! Four mile beach was only a 50 meter walk through the palm trees and town was only 3-4 blocks. We did a lot of cooking and... More

Fantastic place to stay for our last week in Australia ! Three bedroom apartment sufficient for a family of five. Kitchen extremely well fitted out and really good standard of accommodation . Short walk into the town centre with all its various attractions. Can highly recommend it !

We stayed for 4 nights in August in a 2 bed apartment. It was really spacious, spotlessly clean and very well kitted out, the washing machine was especially useful! The apartments are within a couple of minutes walk of all the restaurants and shops and right on the beach. The only reason it has not got 5 stars from me... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in August 2015. We had a 3 bed apartment. It was fantastic, really spacious and clean. The pool is very pleasant, the tennis court is great, good quality surface and shaded. The lady on reception (Vicki?) was really helpful, marked out all the good places to eat. We loved 'On the Inlet" had a... More

Booked a two bedroom apartment for our four night stay in Port Douglas and had a WOW experience when we checked in. Unit 5 was on the ground floor and had about 500 more sqft outside space including an outdoor dining room, lounge chairs and outside lounge under ceiling fans. The only problem was exposure to the hotel lap pool.... More

We stayed three nights at the end of a long road trip and Mandaly Shalimar was just what we needed. The 3 bedroom apartment had plenty of space for us to spread out, the kitchen was well equipped and the full size laundry got a work out. Location next to 4 mile beach was wonderful with a designated walking track... More
