Stayed for seven nights at the Outrigger Port Douglas. We were in Unit 8 with out two kids and it was great - really good size apartment and comfortable beds and furniture. The resort was lovely and the pool was amazing. We had a few peeks at other resorts when we wandered around Port Douglas and it was by far... More

Our family stayed for 10 nights (room 15). We could not have been happier. Our room was clean and modern and easily catered for the 5 of us. Our boys (4, 6 & 8) loved the pool, which was lovely and warm. We loved that the pool was a salt water and shaded well. It was so easy to walk... More

(Written on behalf of my parents stay) "From the moment we arrived at The Outrigger Apartments we were met by friendliness from Andrea who had reserved ideal rooms for us. I had unfortunately tumbled backwards at home prior to our flight from the UK, and arrived with many bruises and a large lump on the back of my head. We... More

Our apartment was very pleasant, older style but clean and bright, with everything we needed for a week's stay. The bed was comfortable. The pool was nice, small but warm and clean. We enjoyed sitting around it underneath the shade of the trees. Wifi was tricky but good by the pool we heard from others. The noise of the fruit... More

Brett and Andrea friendly and informative on places to see and things to do. Reading other reviews it is surprising people have negative things to say. For the money you pay compared to other...

We have just spent 4 nights here and although the location is good the bed is really uncomfortable and it's so noisy. We were woken up just after 6 each morning by people just talking and traffic. The sound seems to echo and we could hear everyone else's conversations. It wasn't very relaxing and the equipment in the rooms old... More

This review was such a surprise! All rooms (except one) have the same bed with 99% of people telling me how comfortable they are??? All rooms are fully self contained with the cupboards fully stocked -if something is missing or a guest wants something all they have to do is ask!! I certainly don't believe that the building echoes -no... More

We have just returned from a 16 night stay at Outrigger and would have stayed there forever. Everything about the place was just as we had hoped or better. We arrived at 6pm and although reception was closed (which we would expect) there was no hassle getting into our apartment. We had been upgraded to The Penthouse apartment no 13... More

Thanks for your review. The cleaners do check all the utensils and cookware on each back to back -so not sure what you are trying to imply. Putting photos of the bottom of a broom and mop is quite a surprise, sorry they had been used, unfortunately we can't replace the mop head every time, but we certainly do on... More
