While this may not be a five star property... it's a five star experience. We loved our little apartment, the proximity to town, the lovely gardens, the relaxing atmosphere, the flexibility of management, the beautiful pools. It was a perfect point of departure for adventures at the reef and beyond. Buddhas everywhere. Thank you.

My partner and I stayed 5 nights in march. The receptionist was lovely checking us in and walking us to our room. The room was beautiful and pools were lovely. Breakfast was good as we recieved It for free but probably not with the $18 they charge for it (fruit coffee toast cereal). Having said that, the beautiful lady who... More

Stayed for a week, first time in Port Douglas. I must say, some of the less than flattering reviews, the writers need to do their home work first before booking. If you book for a week it actually states that your room will be serviced mid-way through your stay, but if you wish servicing prior that it incurs an extra... More

My husband and I were hoping for a resort type experience as promised by the travel agent, I found the place to be comfortable but tired and in need of some maintenance, the fan and air conditioning in the room were essential but very noisy, the room was serviced once in our 7 day stay and no fresh linen supplied...

Absolutely loved our stay here while visiting PD. The resort is in a superb location only 3 blocks to the beach and 2 blocks to the Main Street. Rooms were very quiet and clean! The pools are great however would be better if children were kept too one pool. Breakfast was complimentary however finding a free table was difficult and... More

We purchased a deal from Getaway Lounge to stay in a 1 bedroom apartment. We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed the whole experience. Breakfast was included each day and it was really nice...the girl that works on weekday mornings is so bright, happy and welcoming she made it an even better experience. Nothing was too much trouble for her.... More

Stayed for 8 days over New Years, and had a overall ok experience. The location is great as its a short walk to both the main road, restraunts, beach and marina. The resort however needs some work. The shower never worked properly went constantly from boiling hot to freezing cold. And if u can stay here when it's quiet that... More

The resort is the most relaxing place I've stayed. Very quiet throughout the day and at night. My partner had a 90min massage in the spa and said it was definately worth the money ($150) But book early as its popular. The position of the resort is also good as its close to the Main Street where the bars, shops... More
