The apartments were very close to the main part of town, so walking into town was very easy. The apartment was clean & well appointed, although the kitchenette was extremely small. No bench space, and nowhere to store our own small amount of food-items. The loo paper was so thin you could almost see through it! We spoke to others... More

Booked several months ago to this well priced and well located resort. Rooms were very clean and had everything required. No daily service of the rooms unless you want to pay extra but that was no problem for us. Tea and coffee was also not replaced daily. My only problem was that I think the no smoking on premises policy... More

Nice and central location. Apartment was clean and well presented, although kitchenette very small and could do with more storage space. Pool is very nice and clean as is is the pool deck and barbecue area. Management helpful and accommodating.

Chic it is not, glamorous it is not, but it is perfect in every other way. The apartment met all of our needs for our 9 day stay. Great shower, air con, huge comfortable bed and more than adequate kitchenette. Free WiFi, in room safe and secure car parking added to the experience. As you walk out of the apartments... More

We were presently surprised at the Port Douglas Retreat. It is definitely not the fanciest of apartments that you can stay in, however we thought it ample for what we needed. The room was medium size and spotless, the staff were friendly and very helpful. Our apartment had a balcony that looked over the pool and beautiful tropical gardens. What... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights, great position within walking distance to everything. Clean and very comfy king size bed, would have preferred a couple extra towels in the room and for the pool you had to hire them for $3, we would stay here again.

A nice hotel managed by friendly staff. The room was nice and clean, the beds were comfy. The bathroom and kitchen looked a little out of date but all worked well. The hotel's location is great, only a few minutes walk to the main street, marina and beach. We enjoyed our stay and would go back.

Visited Port Douglas and staid here recently. The Internet was out all weekend. It was apparently Telstra's fault... As a customer I am simply disappointed about this no matter what, considering that free internet (at least 1000MB for two people) was a free inclusion in the room rate. The odd thing is- despite a swimming pool as part of the... More

PDRetreat, Manager at Port Douglas Retreat, responded to this review

It is easy to think of ways that benefit one person, it is more difficult to think of others and be fair to all guests. A significant number of our guests do not swim on the beach, do not snorkel, do not use the pool - they do not like swimming or cannot swim. Hiding the cost of a pool... More
