4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Just had a week at Bay Villas in a studio room. Visitors in Port Douglas are certainly spoiled for choice and making a selection is not easy. Bay Villas is not super luxury 5 star, but it is a great setting, excellent facilities and the location is perfect. You could easily stay here without a car as the beach is... More

The swimming pool also looked cloudy The location is good for town and the beach and it was quite at night so good sleep quality. free onsite washing machine... More

Just back from a week in Port Douglas. We had 3 one bedroom apartments and a couple of studios between us. Rooms were lovely and provided everything we needed. The rooms were clean and quiet. The BBQ area around the pool was fabulous and great for us all to have drinks and meals together. Lovely 10-15 min stroll into town... More

We stayed here in Feb '16. All in all it is a nice place with a nice pool area. We had an apartment style which was perfect and with a nice view of the pool yard and a little balcony. Sebastian is a great host and made sure we were happy. The place is recommended for the price range and... More

When I read the reviews about this place, I wasn't expecting too much from Bay Villas Resort, but once I got there I was very pleasantly surprised! It's definitely not a 5-star resort, but it was very lovely and cute inside, and perfectly clean. For the price, I wouldn't expect more. The ladies at the reception were also great and... More

A Great place to stay, close to the beach and the Main Street. Easy walking to both. We had a kitchenette with fridge, microwave and dishwasher. It was roomy and clean. Two pools, one heated and BBQ entertaining areas, great for families. Helpful and friendly staff.

The rooms are clean although we stayed for 3 nights and in that time our rooms were not serviced. Milk, coffee and sugar that are provided we're not replaced. Laundry services were free and easily available. Pool areas are beautiful and have bbq facilities. Front counter service was great, and attendant very knowledgeable.

Dear Hollie. I'm not too sure how to understand the review you are giving us. You booked yourself a self-contained weekly serviced apartment, what did you expect? The title says it all: we do service of the apartment only if you stay 6 nights or more. And for the rest you have all facilities to cook and store food during... More

Having read other peoples reviews I would say I agree with the majority; rooms are spacious but with very dated decor. The pool area is smaller in reality than the photos shown but are very pleasant. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful and its well located. Wifi is very sporadic, but at least its free!!

The managers are wonderful people our room was overlooking the pool and lush surrounding and only a short casual stroll to the main street but unfortunately our bathroom smelt like mold and the tiny corner shower also was mouldy and limited car parking if you drive. Be aware that these apartments are not serviced.

Dear guest, Thanks a lot for your review and for the kind words about the team. We've had an unusual amount of rain in Tropical North Queensland which created some minor issues in one of our ground floor studio apartments (where you stayed), and which is too close to our tropical gardens -- unusually wet for the season. We are... More
