We got a great deal on ebay for a private room. The room was fantastic. It had a full size fridge, kettle, toaster, camp style burner (to put a frypan on), cutlery, plates, iro etc. The bed was a king size and very comfortable. The room also had a lounge and a 3 person dining table - with still room to move and put luggage etc. The bathroom was a great size with a 2 person bath. The pool was fantastic - had a swim up bar but no seats at the bar, still good. We had lunch by the pool and it was delicious. The buffet breakfast was also good. Dinner was great too. We found a discount booklet in Coles (next the the newspaper stand by the fruit) that had 2 for 1 meals at the Ramada in there. So we had dinner most nights at the resort at a great price!
We hired a tandem bike from the reception and rode into town on one of the days, it was 9kms return trip (and we also went past the marina). The bikes were in really good condition. There is a shuttle bus that comes every 15mins out the front of the resort and its $10 per adult to go into the main street of Port Douglas. If you have a car this resort is fantastic - otherwise you would rely on the bikes or shuttle bus to go into town. Having said that we enjoyed the resort facilities and didnt spend much time in the main street.
