“Central location”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Nice location by the beach. We had a 3 bedroom 'beachfront' apartment for 3 nights. Very spacious and comfortable. My only criticism is that the rooms felt a little sterile and spartan. It was good value and I would stay there again.

Fantastic apartments and location couldn't have asked for more. Nicest accommodation we have ever stayed at and the staff couldn't have done more for us. A special mention to beck and milo the dog who made our stay so pleasant!

The only complaint was that the pool only got sun during the morning so we had to visit the beach during the afternoon which wasn't much of a chore.

We stayed here for 5 nights on a 6 week tour of Australia in a 2 bedroom apartment next to one of the pools. The apartment is extremely comfortable and in a good location. The facilities were excellent and all the staff we came into contact with could not have been more helpful. We will miss seeing Milo the dog each day.

This stop was after a fairly hectic section of our trip and we really enjoyed the chance to relax and unwind a little. If yoU are travelling to Port Douglas this is the place to stay.

Stayed for a week in early August as part of a first time 3 week sojourn to Australia. Northern Queensland is absolutely beautiful, Port Douglas an ideal holiday resort and Mandalay appartments top notch in every way.
This is not a hotel, so it's self catering or eat out in the many restaurants located a short distance away in the Port itself.
The appartments are spacious, clean and very tastefully furnished - I can't find fault with anything really. This is a family run business and everyone was really friendly and very helpful in providing local information or booking our trips to the barrier reef and Kuranda (the sky rail trip is a must if you are in this area)
It is a 10 -15 minute walk to the main shopping area and there is a Coles supermarket where you can buy anything you are likely to need. See also my review of Watergate restaurant and I can also recommend the Mexican cantina on Macrossan street. You must also go to the Sunday market during your stay - very high quality stuff and no tat.

We stayed for 6 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor, adjoining the lovely pool .
The apartment was spacious, spotless and had excellent/near new fittings-large tvs,dishwasher,washing machine.
The beds were very comfortable, the shower great and a wonderful ,large spa!
Beautifully furnished in every detail.

The staff were friendly and most helpful in every way.
The ( 4 mile)beach access is very close and we hired a couple of bmx bikes, which was fun. Didnt get around to playing tennis, but the court was great.
Short walk to Macrossan street, which could be via the beach or streets ( beach route too dark at night).
We definately recommend MAndalay .

Room Tip: we liked being on ground floor next to pool-easy to go back and forth.

Our stay at the Mandalay in Port Douglas was a very enjoyable experience. The apartment was delightful, clean, spacious and comfortable with good bathroom spaces and room to sit and enjoy the weather from the balcony. The access to the beach was easy and it also was an easy walk to the town and all that it offers. The surroundings were well kept and had the tropical ambiance we were looking for . Our grand children who were also staying enjoyed the pool, it was suitable for under 5's and adults as well .While we did not have time to use it the barbecue area is a nice touch and great for families.
The staff led by Raelene Hall could not have been more helpful and welcoming we felt at home from the moment we arrived.
Our stay was of necessity very short, but we both want to return in the near future.

Room Tip: Rooms all seem good, perhaps a pool view may be nice, but we welcomed the quietness of our room.

We very much enjoyed our stay here! The apartment was very spacious and comfortable - we had a beachfront room and could hear the waves at night. Although not overlooking the beach, it was a quick and short walk to the beach itself. We found the location to be central (could walk to main street), but also quiet too. I'm glad we did not stay on the main street - it is quite busy and loud at times. The staff were wonderful, responsive and helpful. We hope to come again!
