I stayed here one night with my friend, we were looking to experience the tropical rainforest, and this hotel did not disappoint! What a magical place... Beds were comfortable, and rooms were spacious. No WiFi or mobile reception, but this just added to the peacefulness and relaxation. Beautiful secluded location, and the manager was so helpful and accommodating. We even... More

We drove from Trinity beach to Cape Tribulation, I had considered staying at Daintree Rainforest retreat after reading reviews but we thought we would continue on and see what Cape Trib was like first. We checked out a few places there and weren't impressed with their price or quality. We decided to head back to Cow Bay and take a... More

We only had one night here but it's a great stop in cape trib. It's very easy to get to everything from here and the staff are really friendly. A short ride to the beach with lots to stop and see/do on the way. Clean and tidy rooms. Basic but just what we needed as we didn't plan on spending... More

This motel is set amongst the rainforest not far from the discovery centre, ice creamery and pub. It is an older style motel but very comfortable and the directions, information and service provided was outstanding. We stayed two nights and had breakfast by the pool on the morning we left -delicious!!!

We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time. The lady manager was very friendly and informative about the things to do in the region. We also had our meals here, fabulous cooking! Rooms comfortable, no wifi (but you can do without for a few days in this wonderful natural environment)

We had a very good stay. We enjoyed the calm environment. The rooms were neat and sufficient, and the beds were so comfortable! The retreat had a really good vibe. Awesome place to stay if you want something authentic in the middle of the rainforest.

Stayed for two nights to explore the Daintree. The resort is right next to the main road: quite close to Alexandra lookout (there is mobile reception unlike in the rest of the area) and across the road from Cow Beach Hotel, where decent pub food is served and you can drink with locals. The owners were very helpful in terms... More
