Our flight from Alice Springs flew into Cairns a few minutes late and we missed our shuttle connection ride to Port Douglas. We ended up having to wait until after 10:30p.m. for the shuttle to arrive back from Port Douglas. Anyhow, we finally arrived after midnight. Fortunately I had the directions and map to Port Douglas Retreat as the driver... More

The pool area with all the palm trees is as relaxing and peaceful as the pictures show. Our apartment was very nice and great to cook at the BBQ down by the pool. David was a perfect tour guide and they helped us book 2 snorkel days and Kuranda plus told us all the stops to make on our self... More

Very nice place to stay. Room was very clean and comfortable. The pool as everywhere, was spotlessly clean. Its very closely located to the main area of shops and restaurants. Owners were very welcoming and knowledgable about the area and had great advice on trips. Only thing i wished they had, was a vending machine as on arrival, to find... More

Our apartment was welcoming, as was the reception of Dave and Joyce. The location was excellent, being right in the middle of a short walk to the Marina, the beach and the main shopping street. The apartment itself is a little dated, but very clean and was a reasonable price for it's location. It had all the amenities that you... More

Reasonably priced for an excellent location. Little kitchenette if you wanted to cook and a decent bbq outside. Bathroom was large, shower was small however. Staff were friendly and helpful. Great pool to relax in and not overly busy. Would prefer towels to be changed bit more regularly. Great place, highly recommended.

We stayed at the Port Douglas Retreat for 6 nights. The location is excellent, 5 minutes from the Marina, 5 minutes from the beach and 2 minutes from the main street (walking). Our room was large enough and had a small kitchen area. The managers are very helpful and provided lots of advice on what to do and see and... More

I recently stayed here for 3 nights on my first visit to Queensland. The accommodation is in a great location and the owners are very helpful and knowledgeable. They gave great advice on trips for my stay, even though it was a busy period and had to book last minute. The room had everything you would need and was clean... More

I stayed for nine nights recently and I was very happy with the experience. The location is great, easy walking distance from Macrossan Street, the Marina and Four Mile Beach. The room is a reasonable size, I was on my own but it wouldn't have been a problem for a couple. The bathroom is large and the shower is large... More

My partner and I had a four night stay at Port Douglas Retreat in July. The room had everything we needed and it was an easy stroll to the Marina, to town or to the beach. However our room at the front was very noisy and we were woken up at 6.30am on three of the four mornings by traffic... More
