Very friendly and welcoming. Jenny is very informative and helpful when planning activities she really is a great asset can't praise her enough. The room we had was 'bedsit' layout and not luxurious but more than adequate and spotlessly clean. Great location to base yourself, as the driver said "turn right to wet your toes, turn left to wet your... More

So glad we chose this place for our 5 night GBR stay. Port Douglas is a smaller, more intimate type of town from which to enjoy the GBR than Cairns and there turned out to be 2 more location benefits. Firstly, Port Douglas is closer and has better access to the outer reef than Cairns. Secondly, the hotel is just... More

My wife and I stayed at the Port Douglas Retreat for 5 nights during Feb 14. The manager provided a enthusiastic welcome and showed us to our studio. The room was clean and thoughfully some basics such as milk, tea and sugar had been provided. We were given a map and the layout of the town explained, most of which... More

Stayed in a studio apartment for three days in Feb. The place was mostly empty and we got a great deal. The room was clean, the AC worked well, the flat screen tv had a few satellite channels to choose from (although not a lot of local channels) and the utensils provided in the kitchen were more than adequate. Bring... More

The staff at Port Douglas Retreat were lovely and very helpful. The rooms are small, but doesn't matter because you are only there to shower and sleep. The beds were comfortable, and the kitchen well equipped. The location was great - it was only a 5 or so minute walk to both the beach and the main street in town.... More

We arrived late after a stressful journey, but immediately felt relaxed after we parked the car in the private garage and settled into the room. 100 mtrs from a wide selection of restaurants, we immediately felt at home. The pool was open until 9.30 pm ( advertised as 10.00 pm, so don't leave it too late) and it was lovely... More

My room was spacious as was the ensuite and the kitchenette meet my needs very adequately. The hosts very friendly and arriving after hours... More

We stayed here for 6 days in January. We had a first floor apartment overlooking the pool. The pool is so lovely, surrounded by plants and trees with birds in the trees, so relaxing, lovely and warm, perfect. The apartment we had was in the best position I think, the apartments are quite basic but comfortable if a little tired... More

The Port Douglas Resort was perfect for our needs and very good value, I think. Quiet, few people staying in Port Douglas at all it seemed, in January, (wet season, but we were lucky, nothing but sunshine for 5 of the 8 days) and few guests at Port Douglas Resort, so we usually had pool area to ourselves. Pool itself... More

This was our first stop on our driving holiday from Port Douglas to Brisbane and it was lovely. Perfect quiet location, beautiful gardens, lovely pool, very helpful and obliging owners who went out of their way to be helpful and informative. Would thoroughly recommend.
