“I will treasure our stay @ Port Douglas foreveeeeeerrr....thanks Mandalay...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2011

We arrived on a sunday afternoon...as we approach our check in the receptionist realised our little boy was big for the cot we had booked...very quickly she organised a bed for him...what a fantastic welcome. We went to our room "lucky #9" ...air cond was on and the room spotless...we were on the ground floor therefore we had a terrace instead of balcony....what a lovely place palm trees and trees and bush and birds and everything just like being in hawai. We had easy access to the tennis court and pool and especially the beach. though the place is opp to beach you cannot see the beach and there is a beautiful walk that will take to the beach...4 mile beach...a treasure !!!!. Mandalay is a quiet and relaxing resort...i love the colours and the surrounding forest...i will be back absolutely yes...close to the shops either walking or driving...it doesnt matter how you will be very relaxed... WE LOVE THIS PLACE AND DEIFNITELY WILL RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE...is for families and also for a romantic stay ...i had both...and came back to Sydney thinking in my next trip to Port Douglas will be in Mandalay.

What a wonderful spot to enjoy Port Douglas. The rooms were spacious and immaculately clean. The apartment was beautifully appointed with all the amenities you need to make a great holiday. We walked across the street to a magnificent beach. The staff was absolutely great! You couldn’t want a better first class experience.

Port douglas is such a great retreat for the city weary, with 8 people in one apartment its hard to fel like your not living on top of each other but the luxury apartments at mandalay are spacious, homely and a great place to come home and put your feet up when you've been on boats all day!
Keep your balcony closed so mossies dont get in!

Excellent hotel with superior service! We loved every second of our stay and decided even to stay for 3 extra nights. Our apartment was very clean, comfortable and quiet and it was very spaceous for 5 adults. Location of Mandalay was perfect on a small quiet street next to the beach and only a few hundred meters from the main street/city centre. Service was excellent and we got help to all possible questions we had. We truly recommend!

My wife and I and two older teenagers had 4 nights in late November 2010. teh hotel was great. It was a very quiet time so we had the main pool to ourselves all the time. The three bedroom very modern apartments had everything you would want - spa, cable TV, dishwasher, fridge, full kitchen, outdoor furniture and its own gate for access to Four Mile Beach and secure undercover parking. Staff were very helpful. There was some minor road works going on to the enterance but this didn't bother us at all. 10 minute woalk to the main shopping area was fine for us. The place is more like serviced apartments than a resort which is exactly what we were after. Highly recommended and we will go back.

We have been holidaying in Port Douglas over a fifteen year period. Usually once per year, or every two years, and have stayed at a number of Hotels/Apartments, but the last 5 occassions we have selected the Mandalay/Shalimar Apartments, and do not hesitate to recommend them to Family and Friends. The Apartments are within walking distance to both town and beach, which we consider another plus.
