The reception staff were welcoming, friendly and informative about the area and facilities on site. High standards of cleanliness in the studio apartment, which was tastefully furnished and well equipped with everything you would expect (and more) for a self catering stay. The villas are located within an easy walking distance of the town and the beach. I would highly... More

Superb accommodation, great facilities, good value, very friendly staff and a fantastic location within walking distance to the center of Port Douglas. We would highly recommend this accommodation, to us it was like a home from home and the staff could not have been more helpful, in particular Ann who was so helpful and gave us such a warm welcome....

My wife and I and two very young children staying recently for 3 nights. The 2 bedroom apartment far exceeded expectations. This is a 3 1/2 to 4 star property so my review is based on those expectations not of a 5 star resort. Price was excellent (got a good deal online). A staff member rang us before we arrived... More

Clean, helpfull lady on the front desk, excellent pool, a/c works really well and was turned on before we arrived. These self contained units are magic for couples, close the beach, a few minutes into town. Overall very good accommodation at a very reasonable price.

This was indeed a great find for my Aunt and me! I was in Sydney for business and had a few days to visit this beautiful part of Australia. The woman at the front desk was welcoming and assisted us with providing area maps and booking tours so that we could make the most of our time there. The location... More

Had booked this hotel through Travelbag for 5 nights and expected it to be close to the beach and town centre.....but it is not close enough especially in high humidity and high temperature. Our minibus dropped us at the front door which was locked but we saw a note stuck on the wall giving us our room number and key.... More

Indeed, most of our studio rooms have no carpet at all. Your feedback indicates that you stayed here almost a year ago and that only now are you... More
