Cairns and Port Douglas is a fabulous place to visit any time of the year. The wet seasons brings its own highlights. The Sheraton was built in the 1980's and it shows, but let that put you off. The lagoons are to die for - they have ocean water pumped into them and are just heavenly. Floating around in a lagoon for an hour twice a day in the tropics is just so relaxing. NO other hotel/resort can offer you what this place does.
The room are a large size. They currently show their age but have large screen LCD TV and all mod cons. The beds are very comfortable. The airconditioning is marginal but acceptable. The gold platted taps are now worn and the glamour of the 1980's is now past. There was one wing closed and a major refurbishment is under way. However the available rates now on offer make it a bargain.
The service is acceptable although there does seem to be a lack of staff. The food is good, without being brilliant. It is of course right on the beach but more than a walk from town. A shuttle bus is provided at extra cost.
If you accept that some of the resort is showing its age but acknowledge that the lagoons are the attraction you will have an awesome time. If you dont swim, float or enjoy the water dont stay here
