We have just returned to Sydney after a week's stay at the Port Douglas Retreat. We were delighted with this choice - lovely welcoming reception area, attractive tropical environment and the rooms were great. Comfortable bed, plenty of space, good bathroom, lovely balcony and perfectly adequate kitchinette. I can't understand people complaining about not having clean towels or room service... More

The location being close to Macrossan street is what made us pick this place. The room was clean and had a nice balcony. The kitchenette is well equipped and the washing machine room worked perfectly. The manager does give advice about the activities that are available in Port Douglas such as diving and snorkeling trips and the reception wall is... More

We had a very nice experience at Port Douglas Retreat! Traveling from the US, I was nervous about confirming accommodations and transportation and in my overzealousness sent not one, not two, but THREE emails to confirm. David, the manager, kindly responded each time to assure me and even joked about it when we checked in! The location was great, about... More

My daughter and I recently spent several nights at The Retreat. Designed for adults but minutes walk from 4-Mile Beach, the marina and the delightful Macrossan Street, the studio apartments are not large but clean and comfortable offering a seating area and a kitchenette, good sized shower-room (no bath), and a balcony with dining table and a good clothes airer...

I booked direct due to reviews stating that this was mainly for adults as we didnt want young children running around due to school holidays. We got a quiet, reasonable priced and central accommodation, exactly what we were looking for. This venue is not the most dazzling of accommodations but it is clean and compact, with a very comfortable bed.... More

We stayed here in early July and were welcomed by David and Joyce the property managers. The studio apartment had all of the facilities that we needed four our 4 night stay. It is only about a five minute to Four Mile Beach and about the same to Macrossan Street. Would happily recommend this property to visitors to Port Douglas

We are just at the end of a 4 week stay . This complex is handy to everything and managers David and Joyce are welcoming and efficient. This complex has all necessary features for a most enjoyable Port Douglas stay and we still have all our arms and legs! Sue and Les.

I booked this hotel direct due to it's savings for booking in May & it's ok reviews. As a solo traveller with no knowledge of Port Douglas and a budget I just wanted something simple, clean, close to the main strip & a decent price. Well I got it - It may not be the fanciest place I've stayed, the... More

My wife and I stay here in May, nice and close to the Marina, the beach and main high. Good value for money, nice and clean rooms. Pool heated and nice area, could trim some of the trees to let more sun in but I suppose in summer might be to hot ??? would stay here again.
