The location was brilliant, just walking distance from the beach, and the staff were superb - really couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The Pool - which we spent a lot of time in was refreshing and the room had everything we needed including a great Barbecue - which we used at least twice. Would definitely stay again.

A lot of furniture were at our disposal, bicycles, towels, beach seats, DVDs, .... The apartment was perfect, extremely clean and well organised. Very close to the beach, quiet, and well located, close to restaurants and Shopping. Nothing... More

The location is great, 30 secs to beach and stinger enclosure for swimming. Nice stroll into main strip for restaurants. Room was nice and big, reception staff were so sweet and came across genuinely friendly. However the stand out was the amount of items you can borrow for free from the reception area, from portable speakers, to beach balls, variety... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, tidy and the décor was modern. It's right on Macrossan Street but not in the busy and noisy part. 2 minute walk to the beach. All the free facilities at this resort and fantastic. If we ever come back to Port Douglas we would definitely stay here again.

Definitely our favorite place to stay on the mainland. Minutes to the beach-all I needed was sunscreen,swimsuit,& hat. They furnished everything else. The girls were so friendly & helpful. Booked our tours after asking a few questions & they were great. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent location at the beach end of the main street.... just a stones throw from the swimming beach - lovely staff - excellent value for money. To receive an email after I had booked and paid offering me a range of accommodation that was not part of the Bookings.com options was just lovely. After a disappointing single night stop in...

Had a few days here in late November. Brilliant location right next to a fabulous beach and within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. All the ladies are really helpful. Rooms are clean and really well equipped. The extra freebies were endless and the free wifi was appreciated.

We had a Superior Sea view apartment. I'm not sure if it's worth the extra for the view as most of it is blocked by the trees. The location of the apartments is good as they are at the quiet end of the street. All of the extras they offer such as beach chairs, bikes and DVDs are excellent if... More

Feels like you're staying with friends. The staff are fantastic, professional but very friendly. Everything to have a fun and relaxing holiday was thought of at no extra cost. We did not expect to see the latest release movies available for free and they were! A good way to relax after a long day of shopping, touring, etc. Highly recommended... More
