I’ll get straight to the point – you come here for the pool, not the accommodation. The pool is magnificent – huge, warm and clean – 5 stars. The accommodation is very average - 3 stars. The two bedroom swim-up apartment we stayed in was tiny. Every room is small, the living area only has one sofa, and there is... More

Highly recommend Pool Port Douglas, friendly efficient staff, very clean, modern, and spacious apartment, lovely pool. Stayed in a 3 bed apartment for 12 days and found it very convenient, much nicer than the alternatives (the Oaks Lagoon looked very cramped in comparison). Suitable for those who want peace and quiet, space, and self catering arrangements. Short walk to 4... More

We loved the resort. Pool access was great for supervising kids and relaxing in our patio. Providing pool toys was Fanstatic' The pool and property appearance was breath taking. Excellent location to town and all the features Port Douglas has. We will return

Thankyou for your review. It is very encouraging for all of us who work at POOL to receive such nice comments and more importantly that you had such a great holiday and experience. We agree that POOL is perfect for families - especially if your kids are water babies, sit and enjoy yourself from your own balcony/patio and still keep... More

Decent accommodation not far from the centre of town (catch the shuttle) and they have a huge pool that can be accessed from each apartment, which my wife and I spent the whole day in. If you want a relaxing holiday in a place you can just lazy by the pool then this is where to stay.

Wow thanks for your great comments on POOL and including all the important information your fellow travellers would want to know. The all important point being the distance from the centre of the shopping/restaurant hub - glad to hear you didn't find it a hassle with the local shuttle being available all day and into the night. We agree having... More

Thank you Pool Resort for a amazing stay our family of 5 enjoy it! Sue at front desk was very happy full.

We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a nice view. There is no restaurant at the resort, but it was a few mins walk to the Ramada which had a great restaurant/coffee. It was also a few mins walk from QT resort which had a flash trendy restaurant. We didn't have a car but managed just fine, we caught the... More

Thankyou for your review. It was enjoyable to read how you found it so easy to get around and find different restaurants to try from POOL without a hire car. I am sure this will be inspiring to other would be travellers looking to stay with us. POOL resort is self catering, so apartments are not serviced daily as each... More

We were really delighted with our apartment. The 3 bedroom swim-up unit was very modern with lovely bathrooms, air-conditioning, and a great entertainment area that opened onto a deck and the pool. The centre of Port Douglas a short 5 minute drive away.

Hi Stephen. Wow, your review makes it all worthwhile in all respects - from our front office team to our dedicated housekeeping team who tirelessly make such an effort to present the apartments to the highest standard. POOL definitely has one of the best locations in town - not located centrally but within a 5 minute drive - our guests... More

Pool looked amazing on its YouTube video & was amazing to see it for myself. Very clean & tidy 2brm apartment, but also very stark & lacking personality. It had everything needed for a self contained. Found the furniture very uncomfortable, and there's no real privacy. You can hear your neighbours top & both sides. The other thing I didn't... More

Thankyou for your review. POOL resort was built in 2007 to a modern design featuring a massive pool for guests to enjoy from swimup to sunset apartments. Those who do not choose the swimup apartments enjoy mountain range views as well as views over the pool. Furnishings are from the highest quality available from a prestigious company SPACE and were... More

We stayed at Pool Resort at the end of June beginning of July 2014 and had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable time. This is not a resort but self contained units. Our 2 bedroom unit was clean and tidy and well appointed. Our son enjoyed the pool each day. Everything you need is provided although I do recommend you have... More

Hi Brighteyes62. So glad to hear you enjoyed your modern apartment at POOL. Being self contained takes away the pressure to continually dine out although the option to do this is lovely. We agree the POOL is perfect for families, especially if the kiddies enjoy the pool. We also recommend guests have a rental car, however, there are options to... More
