We stayed there a few days and we loved it. Sally and her partner who run the place are very nice. It was lovely to be in a place where not even the phone has signal. The only internet connection was the one from the owners (i didn't like the fact that they would ask a fee for internet, i... More

This was the highlight of our trip, if you really want to get a true feel for life in a rainforest then take the time to stay at Crocodylus This accommodation sets you right in the nature of the daintree and your senses gain a clarity that only a place like this will give you.

I stayed there over Christmas and had a unforgettable time. Lovely and helpful staff/owners, fair rates and a great rainforest experience. for those, who expect the perfect accomodation and as an answer to some reviews here: this is the rainforest and very remote - you should be able to deal with a few but usual limitations there! of course there...

We did not stay here but came for the yellow rope tour. It was very well done with lots of things to see. The only problem we had was it had not been maintained and many of the numbers were missing making it a bit confusing; but we still thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and wish we could have stayed longer.

After reading a review about the Sunday night BBQ, we decided to stay on a Sunday night. What a great decision! The BBQ was awesome! We had steak, sausages, chicken, fish, salads and garlic bread. Great value. The accommodation was really cool too! Glamping in a really relaxed and serene spot. The room was really clean and I thought I... More

We on on our last night stay wanted to visit this place based on referral. Shame that we when arriving could not find a receptionist nor anyone to assist with booking. The grounds are in desperate need of repair and I would hope the place gets it. Location superb cannot advise on rooms only lack of service and grounds that... More

This was a great place to stay. Chilled, laid back atmosphere. We highly recommend the Snapper Island kayak and camping trip (bucket-list worthy). I can't put in to words how much we enjoyed staying here - all I can recommend is to go and see for yourself.

Daintree Crocodylus is first and foremost a rainforest resort. Our "grounds" are unspoilt and un-manicured rainforest left that way so our guests can enjoy the jungle and it's creatures up close and personal in as close to it's natural state as possible Reception hours are 7.30-10.30am and 4.30-8.30pm and are clearly posted on various boards around the resort including the...

We stayed here one night and loved it! You stay in tents with beds in them and can hear the rain all night! We did a kayak tour they offered in the morning and had a great time. But ocean kayaking is way harder than it is on a lake! There is no wifi, but you're in the rainforest! There... More

We were given an extra day in our car so went here on the off chance that they would have space. So pleased that they did! The place is amazing. It's completely surrounded by rainforest and wildlife wanders through constantly. Managed to see a Bandicoot through the evening! The staff were really friendly and helpful. There's no WiFi, but you... More

Not for everyone, but for the easy going traveller or one not expecting lots of mod cons it is an interesting experience. arrive before dark to find your way from the car park and don't drag suitcases as all the tracks are gravelly and ruin the wheels, not to mention making it difficult and heavy. Felt like we had a... More
