“Loved our Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Villa San Michele. We were traveling from Adelaide to Port Douglas, so we go into the accommodations late. Check-in was a breeze, and we found the front desk to be very helpful. We stayed for four nights at the very beginning of December, and really enjoyed our room. The room was very clean, the pool was great. Laundry facilities were clean, and very useful. We were so pleased, we didn't want to leave. The only knock was that the bed mattress in our unit definitely needed to be replaced, but I am sure the management is on top of this (they do seem to care about their place).

If you want to stay in the heart of Port Douglas look no further than this accommodation.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable.The staff are very helpful in booking tours and any other questions you may have. The marina is only 2 mins walk away, the beach 4 mins away and there is plenty of dining options on your doorstep. Highly recommended

Stayed for 2 nights in this hotel, loved it, located in the heart of port Douglas, 3 min walk to the 4miles beach, prices are reasonable, staff are great.

No one cleans the room till you ask for that I guess for an additional charge, other than that it's perfect.

If you want somewhere to stay that is in the centre of town, quite, clean, close to everything in town (5 minute walk to the beach, less to good restaurants) this is the place to stay. The staff (especially Karen) are very friendly and most helpful when it comes to booking trips and other queries. Had couple of small issues with the fridge & toilet, both fix immediately without any bother. Only down point, would be we were on the 3rd floor (not elevator). My wife had some difficulty with the stairs.

We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed our unbeatable location - right in the heart of Port Douglas, yet still peaceful and quiet. As you mentioned we do not have a lift however please contact us directly and we can allocate you a ground floor apartment. Thanks again for taking the time to review Villa San Michele.

After viewing trip advisor for hotels for our 5 day stay in Port Douglas, we decided upon Villa San Michele. Upon arrival we were delighted with the central location. Shops, restaraunts, 4 Mile beach and the Marina were all within moments walk. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and well appointed. Highly recommended.

We stayed 2 night in this fantastic resort, it's in the centre of town which is wonderful as everything is walking distance. We found our unit very quite and very comfortable with a lovely Tuscan feel. The receptionists (Karen) is kind and friendly and helped organised a couple of tours. She has extensive knowledge of the area which we found fascinating and extremely helpful. Thank you Karen xxx Chris Norrie

We stayed at Villa San Michelle for 11 nights. As a family of four we were nervous about the size of the two bedroom unit but were pleasantly surprised. It was very spacious with two bathrooms and a large living area. The apartment (number 22) was on the ground level which was ideal as we had to use a pram every day for our one year old. We looked out onto a garden setting which was very peaceful. The staff were helpful and friendly and had a porta cot made up beautifully for my baby. The apartment was dark but we actually enjoyed being able to escape the heat and sun occasionally. The only thing that was dissappointing was that the apartment only got serviced midway through the stay. When it did get serviced it didn't get a mop or a vacuum. I had swept and swept but with two young children I really wanted a good clean as we saw some cockroaches lurking. But really enjoyed our stay and i would go back the location is incredible.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with kids still needing prams go for the ground floor.

Thank you for taking the time to review Villa San Michele. We are pleased you found our two bedroom apartment spacious with plenty of room for your family of four. As you mentioned our ground floor apartments are very handy for families with young children and prams. Regarding the servicing of our apartments we do offer both weekly and daily service rates. The weekly service rate includes a mid-stay service on stays of 5+ nights. However for a small additional cost it is possible to have the apartment serviced on a daily basis. Thank you and we hope to welcome your family again.
