“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We recently spent 5 days at the Madalay Apartments. The 3 bedroom apartment was very clean,spacious & comfortable. Fantastic location very close to all shops & restaurants and a 2 min walk to Four Mile Beach. We highly recommend it. We are already planning to come back for at least 2 weeks.

We recently spent 4 nights in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo at the Mandalay. It is a great place and a terrific base for the region. The condo is spacious clean and well equipped. Plenty of space and plenty of storage. The pool is great, shaded, and heated just right. The beach is just a very short walk and it is beautiful! We swam in the netted area and had no problem with stingers. We used bikes (on the beach!) and tennis rackets and courts, all at no extra expense. When I left jewelry in the room, they mailed it back to me in the USA. Everything as truly terrific and a very good value.

We recently spent 3 nights in this accomodation and it was wonderful.
Very clean, large and bright space. Short walk to the beach. Short walk to McCrossan street (but far enough to be away from noise). Very nice pool and private patio overlooking the pool.

Room Tip: Request a ground level room to be able to walk from your patio to the pool easily

We spent 5 nights at the Mandalay Apartments over the new year. The apartment was very spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Fantastic location for Four Mile beach and only a few hundred metres from the main shops and restaurants. Highly recommended.

My family of 4 just spent 4 nights in Port Douglas and we were very happy with our choice of the Mandalay apartments. The staff are extremely helpful, the 2-bedroom apartment we had was great (spacious, comfortable, clean and stocked with everything we could need), the pool is perfect for an afternoon swim (small, but somewhat covered/shaded so nice on a hot day) and the location was great - a short walk to the main street in town and practically next to the beach. I would definitely recommend it and would stay here again without hesitation.

The Apartments are in a fantastic location, away from the bustle of the main area, but so close to 4 mile beach. Most areas of Port Douglas are a short walk away, and a shuttle bus connects nearby.
Management are extremely friendly, and the property amenities are very good and quite well maintained. The pool area is great for families and children.
Highly recommended for your self contained stay in Pt Douglas
