My wife, 7-yr-old daughter, and I spent two nights here in early August. We stayed in one of the bungalows (Turpentine) and found the accommodations to be excellent and exactly what we expected from reading other reviews, maybe even better than expected! We've described the bungalow to friends as "luxury camping." If we are ever fortunate enough to visit the... More

Travelling with a large group of friends, we spent 4 nights here and enjoyed every minute. Sally and Steve full of helpful information about all the things to do around Daintree and Cape Tribulation, and as far as I was concerned we could easily have spent a week there enjoying the rainforest, the pristine beaches, activities such as night walks,...

This is just the sort of accommodation that gets you close to the environment - sure, it isn't luxury, but you have everything you need, and if you are looking for luxury rather than the rainforest, maybe you should go to one of the other places. However, in Crocodylus you will find yourself becoming part of the environment - amazingly... More

14 of us shared 2 large cabins - which could have been a recipe for disaster but turned out great. It was an amazing rainforest forest experience sleeping to the sound of birds and nocturnal animals (and snoring) Our hosts, Sally and Steve and the rest of the staff were friendly and super helpful. We enjoyed their lovely home cooked... More

Great accommodation, Excellent staff, Home cooked meals at very cheap price. The location of the huts, with the rainforest all around , was really great. An awesome place to meet heaps of great people.

We slept one night in a double room, and had an amazing forest experience! The staff are extremely friendly, the atmosphere is homely, comforting and relaxed. The facilities (bar and restaurant) are great - huge plates of food for a song (good value, great quality). If you are a light sleeper, make sure you take ear-plugs as the forest can... More

Hi all, we stayed one night on our way through to Cooktown. The place is a true jungle accommodation. We loved it. We were upgraded to family room. It rained overnight and we enjoyed the rain over the roof and there weren't any leaks. The staff were super friendly; and helped get organised with all day tours. The meals are... More

Crocodylus has a special atmosphere, it is a canvas village with good value quite basic clean comfortable accommodation. We... More

Crocodylus village is a series of cabins in the middle of the rainforest, so you sleep amid the noises of birds and nocturnal animals, but with really comfortable beds, fresh white linen and towels, mosquito nets, and ensuite bathrooms with high-pressure super-hot showers. There is a self-catering kitchen near the bar as well as a restaurant café, where we had... More
