We stayed in a 2 bedroom upstairs downstairs apartment overlooking the pool which was lovely. 3 tv's, full kithcen, 2 bathrooms, air conditioned, 2 balconies...perfect. Breakfast was included in the room rate each day with kids under 12 also able to eat free from the dinner menu... More

This is a nice hotel (although it feels like some areas could do with up-grading) but the location was not ideal for us as we did not have a car, it is at least 45 mins walk into town. There is a regular shuttle bus but you need to pay for it - 5 dollars each trip so that can... More

Hi Liz J, Thanks for posting your review. Your comments regarding the location of our resort are quite common as you can see here on TripAdvisor. We do recommend guests hire a car to take advantage of the great tourist destinations surrounding Port Douglas. Most of the larger, branded resorts are located on the same road as us which is...

LOCATION The Rendezvous Reef Resort was a great girl's trip to the tropical north. We had a hire car for our 4-night duration, so driving didn't bother us in terms of this resort's location. If you're planning to 'walk' to the main street, it's quite a distance - at least a good half hour each way, so this may not... More

Hi hellojacquelineanne, Great to hear you had a good time with us at the Rendezvous. Our villas are indeed large and a great place for families. We are located on Port Douglas Rd where most of the other large resorts are so either a hire car or the regular shuttle buses are the best option to get around. Thanks for... More

A nice place to spend some relaxing time with the family. Clean tidy and the food is good. Over all my stay at this place was pleasant and relaxed. The surrounding area is very nice fill of trees and birds. The resort pools are nice and all the common areas are very nice. The unit that I stay in was... More

We stayed at the Rendezvous Reef Resort in November 2013, on our first visit to Australia. Rendezvous Reef is a little out of the town of Port Douglas (bit far to walk) but there is a regular shuttle bus and other bus taxis you can get for about $5. The resort offers great facilities so unless you are wanting to... More

Hi Smateer We appreciate the positive review you have posted! Our resort is similarly located on Port Douglas Rd like most of the other main resorts in Port Douglas and it's around a 40 minute walk into town so most guests choose to opt for either a hire car or the shuttle bus as you describe.

We have just stayed at Rendezvous Reef Resort (15 to 19 March) as part of a three week trip to Australia. Having initially been allocated villa 83, we were shocked by the poor standard of accommodation on offer. The fixtures and fittings were dated, chipped and dirty and the general standard of cleanliness was appalling! We secured a move to... More

Arrived early hours of morning and we were given a code for the key safe to get our keys as reception was not manned!

Hi FirstTrotters, Thanks for posting your review. Our last refurbishment to most of the guest villas was in 2008. I am disappointed to hear that we did not meet your expectations. Reception hours are daily from 0700-2300, including Sundays and Mondays. You must have this mixed up with the restaurant & bar hours which do not open on Sundays and... More

We were disappointed with our stay this time. The resort is lovely and has beautiful gardens and pools, the restaurant food is very good but it was let down by the unit.

Hi Jenstewart, Many thanks for another review of our resort. In response to your comments, as we are fully self-contained, our villas are not serviced during guests stay unless it is paid for. Some agents have a mid-stay clean built into the accommodation package which is most likely what you booked previously. This of course is paid for within the... More

Hi Ronny05, Thanks for your comprehensive review of the Rendezvous! Definitely agree with your comments regarding the value and size of the villas. We have multiple pools on site too which are especially great for kids. The gym is operated by a third party so we do not have control over the opening times however it is certainly something we...
