Very good for the price. Within easy walking distance of Port Douglas nightlife and also only a few minutes walk to 4 mile beach.Staff were very approachable and helpful. The only down side that we can comment on is that we arrived late and tired and it would of been nice if the was some bread and butter in the... More

I did not like port Douglas on the whole. Bay villas was ok, could do with better house keeping as we had our sheets and towels changed once in our 6 night stay. However they do offer free washing and drying machines. Comfy bed, could do with better lighting walking up to the Main Street as it is pitch black... More

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.

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
