The tariff is also very reasonable, especially when you consider daily... More

The Sands Port Douglas has been a great place to stay .. The beach is just across the road, the Main Street is just a couple of minutes drive down the road where there are lovely shops and restaurants. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and pool is great. Perfect for family getaway!

A bit of an older Resort which was very basic but also very clean with good size apartments and all the required amenities. The only issue I had was there was no vent in the bathroom to let the steam out so it made it very difficult to get dry after a shower as it was so hot. The Cafe... More
