Nice hotel that's close to beach 10 minute walk and close to town centre 15 minute walk. We had a studio room that was big enough for the 2 of us, room clean well laid out, staff very helpful ( thanks Vicki & Pam )

The three room, two bathroom suite is the perfect for a family. The layout is good, almost everything needed is provided, and the pool and beautiful gardens wonderful. Vicki at the Front Desk is fantastic. The location of the accommodation is a comfortable and safe walk to nearby town centre, harbour, and beaches. Unfortunately the holiday is being ruined by...

My husband and I are from the United States and stayed here in the month of October for two nights with our friends from Sydney. The facility and apartments were clean, quiet comfortable & well located to town. The receptionist was exceptionally helpful and friendly. Two caveats: there is no elevator/lift to assist with your luggage if your rooms are... More

The rooms were good, everything you needed for a week+... More

My dad & I stayed here last week for 5 nights. I would start by saying Port Douglas is my absolute favourite place in Australia & the Bay Villas helped to make it so. We arrived late one evening having booked an apartment via a travel agent in the UK. When we got there reception was closed so they had... More

Large clean comfortable rooms, very good value. Very friendly service. Great facilities (pool, bbq etc) and easy walking distance to Macrossan St, the marina, and beach. The complex was quiet and offered flexibility for late arrival. Will stay again

We had 3 nights in your wonderful apartments. Great atmosphere, clean, beautifully presented apartment. Staff were delightful and were always willing to share their knowledge of the area and answer any concerns we had. We loved the short walk to the main shopping centre. Didn't need our car at all during our stay. Thank you. We will return.
