We loved everything about Bay Villas Resort! We were on the top floor in a two bedroom self contained apartment. The stairs area only short flights, so mo problem for us. The only down side is that we shared a mini foyer with the next room (12A and 12B), so you need to make sure you pull your door closed... More

My husband, toddler and 5 month old stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment at Bay Villa for 10 nights in July. It had everything we required for a relaxing family friendly holiday! The apartment was huge and spacious with a garage and enclosed courtyard. Other bonuses included a bath tub and a full equipped laundry. Vicky at reception was lovely... More

Such a lovely large room for my husband toddler and I. Close enough to town to walk to restaurants and cafés or all the amenities to stay in and do dinner at home. There is a full size bath tub making it even easier if you have kids. Hiring a bike to ride on 4 mile beach is a must.... More

We stayed at Bay Villa from 15 to 20 July 2014.

Hmm..: when booking, ask which floor is the... More

Great Location; excellent services in the rooms... Friendly, helpful staff who have a desire to ensure a good stay. I would recommend Bay Villas if you're wanting a relatively inexpensive place to stay that's close to the Main Street of Port Douglas

This place is the best to stay in Port Douglas. Value for money. The location is only a 10 min walk to the shops or beach. The apartment overlooked the pool. The staff were amazing, and helped us with things to do around Port Douglas. If I go back to Port Douglas, I will stay here again.

The boxy room was overpriced and the service was average, they also charged a "rebooking fee" and charged my credit card without my authorization. I will not be rccommending this place to anyone and won't be staying there again

Dear Jes, when you make a booking and then do not show it is standard practice that you will lose your money. You should try and get a cheap airline ticket and then at the last second not show up. See how far you get asking them to hold the ticket open for you. We on the other hand offered... More
