Although we arrived late, the staff member on duty was friendly and helpful, providing a map of Port Douglas and directions. The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped, as was the whole complex. There are 4 swimming pools, a swim up bar and easy access to 4 mile beach, which is a short walk down a pretty path from... More

!. Good access to Pool. 2. Large ,spacious Studio. Ample fittings for snacks. 3.Helpful Staff. 4. Breakfast breads were poor quality. Why in a town rated for its excellent standard of catering? 5. The charge for Wi-Fi access is excessive, even unnecessary in a Town where 'free Wi-Fi' is readily available in the majority of establishments. 6. We had deliberately... More

We traveled in quiet season which meant that there weren't too many people in the resort. This was good because we had the pool to ourselves a lot. A downside was that the pool bar wasn't always open.. But it was open over the weekend. Continental breakfast was simple with a selection of cereal, toast, fruit, yogurt and muesli. Accommodation...

The location we thought was great as we weren't right in town however a 10 minute walk of 1 minute drive brings you to the town center. A beautiful pool with swim up bar and our rooms were spacious and clean.

Prior to making a booking at Portsea, the hotel looked great, balconies overlooking the pool area and generally pleasing asthetics. The best thing about this stay was leaving! The room we stayed in had no balcony and was suitable for a storage room, with pictures highlighting the balconies, one would have thought that all of the rooms have balconies -... More

On arrival the hotel looks stunning. A white wide lobby greets guests. This leads to a picturesque communal swimming pool in the heart of the hotel. Our room was extremely spacious. A large comfy bed, with a sitting area, kitchen, dining area and a balcony. The modest bathroom also met our needs. The shower is positioned over the bath. The... More

Stayed in twin room for 3 nights. Good room. Enough space. Tv DVD. Fridge. Kettle. New bathroom (large). Balcony overlooking lap pool. Can walk to town in 10-15min (unlike many other hotels). Only 1 block to beach too. Great sushi & bottle shop across road too.
