We were due to travel to Port Douglas earlier in the year but the cyclone meant our flights were cancelled, we rescheduled for July. Unfortunately the standard apartment we booked wasn't available so we booked the Terrace Apartment with the private pool and spa. The pool was okay, we probably didn't use it as much as we should and it's really not very private as the other balconies look over the pool area but it was a nice treat to have. We walked into the apartment and said WOW alot! The apartment was huge and amazing with Miele appliances, a TV in each room (our 9 year old son was thrilled), it was clean and just gorgeous. Location wise, couldn't be better.
Of course when something is this great, you notice the small things that could make it even better. A few comments/suggestions:
For this pricey daily rate, I would expect the beds to be made daily. Not necessarily a full service (this is done after 5 nights I believe) but the beds being made would be a bonus.
A nice coffee machine rather than a standard plunger would fit in better for an apartment of this level.
My husband mentioned that a light above the sink for shaving would be good.
There is a DVD player in the apartment, a DVD library for guests would be good as the local DVD hire shop had hardly anything decent to watch and what was there was scratched and would probably skip and jump.
I've seen another comment about noise from above apartments... I can only presume that the people staying above us had small children as it sounded like a herd of elephants above us from 7am in the morning and we were there for a rest...
That's it, we will definitely be back but will probably save some $$$ by staying in the standard apartment.
