From the moment we arrived, I knew I had booked a winner. The building façade and tropical gardens shimmered beautifully in the moonlight and, despite the fact that we were horribly late and outside business hours, the owner was waiting to welcome us. She had also organised a fruit basket and an upgrade to a three bedroom apartment for our... More

Reception opens from 8am to 6pm. If you arrive outside of these time a welcome letter and apartment key is left out at the reception. Our 3 bedroom, two bathroom apartment was very spacious and well equipped, with dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The apartment was at the rear of the complex, comprising of a master bedroom, walk-in closet... More

We booked one bedroom apartment but were upgraded to a two bedroom one. It was fantastic, lovely furniture, table and chairs, sofas etc. Outside there was another table and chairs, two sun beds and a soft built in sofa. In front of this there was a little garden with tropical plants. There was a well equipped kitchen and a laundry... More

Stayed at the Mandalay for 5 nights and was very impressed. I had booked a 1 bedroomed apartment but was upgraded to a 2 bedroomed apartment. The apartments are very well furnished and have everything you need for a comfortable holiday even a laundry room which was very useful after touring Australia for 2 weeks prior. The apartment was very... More

We've been wanting to stay here for a few years because it looks great, but unfortunately our experience didn't meet our expectations. The positives are it's close to the beach (flags/chairs/etc), the grounds are beautiful/clean with lovely plants and its close to Macrossan street. The parts that didn't suit us were the unclean/outdated apartment, no service (no daily cleaning, room... More

Mandalay apartments are lovely, yes, but the marketing of beachfront is a bit of a stretch. You cannot see the beach at all and you access the beach via a shortish wooden walkway through scrubby beach trees, not what you might think of as tropical flora as per the ad. The place is lovely, so why the false advertising? If... More

A relaxing, peaceful and welcoming place to stay. Very helpful receptionists (inc Milo the dog). The modern accommodation was spacious, very clean and well equipped, patios off each bedroom and another leading out from the lounge area which was conveniently located next to the small pool.
