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.

We were 4 people staying for 4 nights in April and had a nice stay at the Port Douglas retreat. The rooms are clean and nice, but basics like Shampoo not provided (only a bar of soap). The common area is very nice, and used by us frequently, both the nice lagoon like pool and the bbq-area. The location is... More

Brilliant for the money! Couple of minutes walk and you are in the centre of Port Douglas with all the bars and restaurants, and in the other direction you are at the beach. The owners are fab, so welcoming and friendly. Rooms themselves are fine, fairly basic but very very clean. Pool area is lovely as well, with a nice... More

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
