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 The bathroom and kitchen looked a little out of date but all worked well.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

Just returned from a 5 night stay at the retreat. Very friendly service, within walking distance to everything. Clean and comfortable. Lovely pool area with some shade if needed. Great little kitchenette. Comfy king size bed. Would definitely stay here again. Would have like a couple of extra towels in the room.

Very good accommodation - clean and spacious, with comfortable beds and a small well equipped kitchen area - everything needed to self-cater. Nice sized balcony with large table and chairs, very nice pool. Staff were friendly and helpful. A very good location, a couple of minutes to Macrossan Street, close to the beach and Marina. Room only serviced for stays... More

We've just returned from 8 nights at Port Douglas Retreat - such a central location. It was a four minute walk to the centre of Macrossan Street, five minutes to Four Mile Beach and five to the marina. David and Joyce are excellent hosts, always friendly and helpful - the apartment was clean and comfortable with a king size bed... More

The Port Douglas Retreat offers friendly service, great facilities and a very good nights sleep. We spoke to others who stayed near the Main Street and were kept awake until 3am with the loud party goers, this is NOT a problem at the Port Douglas retreat! I recommend the pool view rooms for a view of the lovely deck gardens... More

Comfortable, good sized rooms within walking distance of beach, marina, and main street. Everything clean inside and outside, with a good sized pool and B.B.Q. eating area. Value for money and friendly support at the front desk.

Upon arriving (late, after reception had closed) we found a personal envelope with our name on it, so i assumed it would be our room key and advice with where to go from there. Soon after David the owner came from nowhere to greet us and help us settling in. it was late so we pretty much went straight to... More
