Location is a bit far from marina but close enough to the beach. Apartments are well appointed but a 4 star hotel I think should be serviced. The pools were clean and the staff helpful.An O"K experience

We chose Bay Villas because we wanted a three bedroom apartment at a reasonable cost and this met our needs. It is by no means a luxury complex but it was clean and lovely. We had a two bedroom with a one bedroom interconnecting which made the apartment quite spacious. There are two pools - one is heated and the... More

We stayed in unit 31A- 2 bdrm/1 bath, on the 3rd floor/no elevator, for 4 nights. Upon check in, i realized that our unit had only 1 bathroom and was told that only the ground floor units have 2 bathrooms and these are reserved for people who cannot climb the stairs. Fine since it was my fault for not noticing... More

Bay View was our first experience of (what we became to realise) was typical Aussie style motel type accommodation. We arrived in the dark so spent a while finding the place but luckily my daughter and her hubby and checked us in in advance and flagged us down eventually. Had to park in the road, but no problem with that.... More

Short notice during busy season left us with few options for a one night stay in Port Douglas. Booked this 2-bedroom unit in a nice looking building on the main access road into the village. While we requested a low floor, we were given a unit up three floors from the ground, with no elevators available. Units are cheaply constructed... More

Thank you for your feedback regarding Bay Villas Resort. We are shocked by what you wrote regarding” what has happened “ during your only 1 night stay with us, it does not seem all matching the reality. First of all, we are a pet free property. It is not possible that you can hear a dog from another unit. Either... More

There was a problem with our booking when we arrived. Because I had a bad back I had requested a ground floor apartment. and unfortunately when we arrived we discovered we had been allocated a room on the second floor with many stairs to climb. I cannot thank the lady at Reception enough as she rallied round and found more... More

We had 5 nights at the Bay Villas and we enjoyed our stay. I thought the accommodation represented value for money. The rooms were clean and the staff very courteous. Only issue with the room is the shower of the bath, not one of my favourite features.

looking forward to lazing on a deck chair getting a bit of sunshine, no such luck , barely enough room for a table and 2 chairs. Don't want to sound too critical as we never saw the larger rooms,but being such a popular spot, and reading all the reviews I would have thought a studio appartment would have been bigger... More

This resort was walking distance to the Main Street with all the restaurants, cafes, supermarket, shops and pubs! It was also so very close to the Surf Club and surf beach. With 2 pools, free parking, free wi-fi, kitchenette and adequate cooking facilities, free access to laundry....there was nothing lacking! A great price as well!
