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

Breakfast includes cereals and toast with spreads, and tea and coffee which was ample for our needs. Short pleasant walk into PD itself from either beach(through the... More

Great location and nicely appointed rooms. Pool was lovely and the sandpit was a hit for our 3 year old. Staff were very friendly and had some helpful tips. Breakfast included was really good. A relaxing week - thanks!

We were made to feel very welcome and the management team were always helpful,sorting out tour issues and arranging bookings. We arrived late evening after normal check in hours but everything was made simple for us. Our apartment had good facilities and overlooked the lovely pool and garden. A great base for exploring the nearby reef and rainforest.

We were staying in port douglas sands resort for 4 nights. We got a beautiful apartment for 7 of us. The standard is really high, resort is beautiful and the people who working there are so kind and professional. Everything was excellent! This place can make your holidays in Port Douglas be even more pleasant.

Our apartment was comfortable with AC and ceiling fans, a comfortable bed and living area, foxtel incl. The area itself is nice and close to 4... More

The hotel is nice with all the rooms around the pool and gardens, the pool itself is good for kids, it has a wading end, spa and sandpit. We had a two bed apartment with a/c only in the main living area, all the rooms had ceiling fans but they didn't work all that well, particulary the one in the... More
