Our family of four recently stayed with Pandanus Holiday Apartments in a two bedroom self contained apartment for three nights.
We found the booking via Wotif and also made contact direct with the hotel. Initially we found this a contradiction because dealing direct was charging us $240 a night and Wotif was charging $200 a night. We found out after booking with Wotif that was because the apartment through Wotif was discounted because it was smaller. However, we had already booked this and so we went with this and the responses we did get via email were quick and efficient. Also, we were booking this accommodation at the last minute so we appreciated the service.
It is a total of 4 apartments in the complex and ours was at the back next to the car park however, the location of the apartments was terrific. Right across the road from the beach and close to a couple of restaurants.
The apartment was non smoking, clean and tidy but quite small for a family and, the toilet is not in a separate room. It has a half wall and is in with the shower and laundry area which isn't ideal. The master bedroom has a timber folding door which opens out onto the living area and the second bedroom is compact. In the master bedroom, there is a timber open clothes storage area. This is quite roughly sawn and causes your clothes to catch when taking in and out. The kitchen is ok but the fridge is rather noisy at night turning on and off. Easy to hear from the master bedroom given the size and the fact it doesn't have a solid door.
The pool area is clean and well maintained but again, really small. We didn't use the pool at all as the weather wasn't warm enough for swimming when we were there.
In summary, the apartment was very clean and the complex well maintained and located and we certainly enjoyed Mission Beach as a location to stay in. For $200 a night, the accommodation was not as good value as what we enjoyed at Palm Beach or Port Douglas and if you are booking via Wotif, just be aware that the room you are booking is different to what is on offer if you book direct and pay more per night.
