“Our Home In Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

My wife and I have been regular visitiors to Port Douglas for a number of years now but this is our first stay at Paradise Links, we're already planning our next stay there !

We were greeted as old friends, Emma, Shirley and John looked after our every need and were only to happy to do so. The one bedroom apartment we stayed in for two week stay was spotless and perfect for our needs, we made fantsastic use of the balcony enjoying many breakfasts and lunches there in privacy. Thought there was a reasonable number of guests in house, there was never any intrusion or disturbance.

The resorts proximity to Four Mile Beach is fantastic, there's nothing better than a leasurley stroll along Four Mile before a quick dip in the resorts pool before Breakfast and then the same again in the afternoon.

Port Douglas is a small hamlet surrounded by some of the worlds most maginficent wonders yet the town isn't buisy and overly commercialised, its a quiet, welcoming and comfortable place to stay, hence our repeated visits over the last ten years.

As mentioned above we look forward to our next stay in PD and at Paradise Links.

Heather & Chris

Room Tip: We stayed in a two bedroom apartment on the first level and it was fantastic.

First visit to Port Douglas and we were very fortunate to book in at Paradise Links.

It is a fine example of a very well run business which goes the extra mile to ensure its guests feel welcome.

We booked a one bedroom apartment which was spacious and well located with all facilities including Foxtel (important for this sports lover!). Excellent air con, kitchen and bathroom facilities with adjacent parking and great proximity to Sea Temple Golf Club which was also in pristine condition.

A terrific welcome from JC and all the team who provided great advice on where to go and how to go about it

I don't usually write reviews but the team at Paradise Links deserve every positive accolade, they made for a terrific break and we look forward to returning

Really can't say anything bad about Paradise Links. My mother and I got a great deal to stay with them via Groupon. The staff were fantastic from beginning to end. They told us to find the cheapest flights and ring back and book the dates that suited us. On arrival they were friendly, professional and helped us to organise other tours and sightseeing activities whilst in the area. Everything they suggested was great from the massage lady in town to the Croc tour in the Daintree. Our one bedroom apartment was beautiful, modern, well equipped and clean. We ate a few breakfasts and lunches in the room but mostly dined out in Port Douglas where there are loads of great places to eat. The best thing about Paradise Links was the privacy and the noise level. We were told on arrival that the Resort was full but we barely saw nor heard other people. There's nothing worse than noisy hotels where you can't get a wink of sleep. There were families above and next to us but when inside our room with the doors closed at night we never heard them. The bed being super comfy and the air conditioning also made for a great nights sleep. I would love to go back to Port Douglas and would definitely stay at Paradise Links again. I would recommend it to any friends and family looking for a relaxing holiday.

Stayed April 2012

Thanks for the great comments, we welcome you back soon. The resort is always quiet even when we are full. Glad mum got to see the reef and snorkel, well done.

I went to PD as a solo traveller, and had one of the Links rooms, which caters for two. It was clean, large, and ideal for me. The only thing that could have made it better would be a toaster. :)

The staff were kind and helpful, and it's a pleasure to stay there. Links to the town are easy, and the beach is a short walk - about 10 minutes or so. I fell in love with Port Douglas, too.

Very impressed with the accommodation here. the rooms were big, the layout was well thought out. We had a three bedroom townhouse with upstairs living. The pool was fantastic and not over chlorinated. Close enough to local IGA and bottle shop. ride in to town was only ten minutes. Will defiantly be going there again.

Room Tip: call for deals $400 a night is to dear

We spent a week at Paradise Links in October and had a fantastic time. The apartment was spacious and well equipped. The pools and facilities were excellent but the best feature was the staff. Emma, john and Shirley were great at organsiing activities and giving advise and their experiences . We booked a golf package and John helped with all of this. We would recommend this resort to anyone, it was great.

My husband and I stayed here for 6 days(originally 5 but stayed an extra night) and absolutely loved it. We got a groupon voucher and knew little about the resort and were pleasantly surprised. As all the other reviews stated the staff are first class and help you with anything you need. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, which was squeeky clean and had everything you needed there. We were advised to keep food in the fridge due to the clever ants that may carry your food away if you leave it. Which happens in a tropical place!

The resort is just a short distance from town, which to us was great as we love walking. You can walk along four mile beach to get into town, which is a scenic and cool route to take.

There is a beautiful swimming area which has four pools; one main and three smaller ones. Perfect for cooling off during the heat of the day.

This was our first trip to Australia and this is one destination i would most definetly come back to for all the reasons listed above.
