Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled in Port Douglas, the Sea Temple Resort & Spa has garnered appreciation for its exquisite pool and inviting rooms, according to guests. While the resort's cleanliness receives high marks, some visitors have encountered issues with maintenance and lamented the inconsistent Wi-Fi. Although the staff's friendliness stands out, the service's reliability sometimes falls short. Accommodations are praised for their space and spa baths, yet privacy concerns and outdated decor have been noted. Despite its claims to luxury, a number of travelers question the resort's value, feeling it doesn't quite meet five-star expectations.

We had the most memorable stay at Pullman Sea Temple. Special shout-out to Clement and Maj at the Aluco restaurant (where the buffet breakfast is). They went above and beyond in looking after us - from remembering little details like our order and our anniversary, checking on us multiple times if we need more coffee, and lovely chats that we thoroughly enjoy every morning. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The coffee and omelets (made to order) were amazing, we also love the chocolate croissants, coconut chia pudding, pastries, and fresh juice. The pool is just gorgeous and always clean, you feel like you are in another country. The pool is big with multiple little pools that were fun to explore. There were plenty of floaties available. Many pool seats, both sheltered and unsheltered. The pool is shallow enough for me to relax in (deeper in the middle). Dining at Aluco was amazing - we had the barramundi which was the best we have ever had. The lobby is breathtaking. Do yourself a favour and book in !

The Pullman in Port Douglas is absolutely first rate in every regard. EVERYONE treated us in a caring, compassionate and friendly way from the moment we arrived, after having issues with musty/mildew odors upon trying to check in at a nearby resort. They allowed us to check out the room before checking in. The front desk reception team of Tanya, Alejandra and Matthew were kind, efficient and caring. They are all exemplary people. Dining was a pleasure; the care, humor, conversation and joy we recieved from Clement was appreciated every morning. The food was excellent. We tried vegemite and decided that would be the first, last and only time. Perhaps with more time a taste could be acquired... The room, facilities and grounds were luxurious, clean, well decorated, large and convenient. After spending 1000+ nights in Marriotts: Pullman and ALL-Accor have opened my mind to new possibilities. Thanks to all of our new friends at Pullman Port Douglas Sea Temple and Resort & Spa. You helped make our 55th Anniversary Adventure trip quite memorable.

Amazing hotel and top 5 star service. Thank you to Sarah and Sonya on the front desk for looking after us so well. Sydney in the restaurant was amazing. Her service and friendly smile made dinner extra special. The food was mouth watering. We will definitely back again. Thank you

Family of 4 (teenage kids 15 & 18).. lovely resort and wonderfully friendly staff from around the world. Our two bedroom apartment has 2 bathrooms and a spa bath on the rooftop. Note, some 2 bedroom apartments only have one bathroom so it's a bit of pot luck.. Resort pool is huge and has wonderful temperature day & night. Just cruise I to the water with no adjustment time. Bar by the poolside provides true resort enjoyment. Would be 5 stars, but let down by menu options. We are here for 6 nights, but the buffet breakfast has had exactly same menu every day. It's good but still quite limited with no chicken options. Half the world does not eat beef or pork, but the buffet breakfast menu does not cater well for this. This morning we went to Mirage for their famed buffet breakfast for a holiday treat and we weren't disappointed. Room service tonight, but menu has no chicken dish, no burgers, and no club sandwiches... So a bit disappointed with food options again. On the whole a fantastic place to stay, but we felt there was so much room for improvement in food menu options.

Enjoyed this lovely hotel on a visit to Port Douglas. It’s a short drive to town which we need several times during our stay. You do need a rental car if you want to experience the area. Our package included a wonderful breakfast buffet with cooked to order eggs. We also enjoyed the spa. We had a studio room which did not have laundry facilities. We had to find a laundromat as this was a six night stop on a seven week trip. The rooms are spacious. Could probably use a bit of sprucing up. We were disappointed the beach was not really walkable or swim able. Over enjoyed the resort. Staff were so nice and helpful.

Our stay at the hotel was good, probably too many families for a honeymoon couple but that’s to no detriment to the hotel. The biggest criticism is that the day we left I phoned advising that I had left an expensive electric toothbrush and they told me someone would get back to me ASAP.. I have now phoned 3 times and sent 3 emails and no one has got back to me. We now leave Australia and back to the UK tomorrow so have no option to have it posted to an Australian address/hotel. The reception staff were great when at the hotel but disappointed with any after service.

Overall I enjoyed my time at Port Douglas but this hotel was not what I expected. It bills itself as five star but doesn’t provide a five star service and the additional facilities such as food areas are definitely only 4 star. On the plus side it is an amazing pool. The rooms are more like self contained apartments which I enjoyed and we had our own private sun and bbq area which was fantastic. The hotel is definitely more suited to families with children not a couple. The pool bar / food area was definitely below par. Overall it is an average hotel.

Great stay at the Pullman, check in was great smooth and effortless the lady (sorry I didn't get her name) it was her 4th day working and she was very warm and welcoming, she's a keeper! Also had a bottle of bubbles in our room to celebrate our anniversary, what a lovely touch! The apartment was fantastic! Spacious 2 bed with a brilliant roof terrace, BBQ, and jacuzzi, which we used every day. The additional space allowed us to make use of cooking and enjoying the time we had just the two of us. The pool was a great size and a minute walk to the gorgeous beach, which is great in the morning. We used the room service on the 1st night, the app didn't work for telephone numbers out of Australia, so we just called. A few dishes were not available, but what we did have was delicious, the restaurant and pool bar seemed to close earlier than I expected and we only just made the order for service. My only reserve is that there is no shop in close proximity or even on site. Pullman offers such a great outdoor entertaing space with nowhere to buy amenities. You can however get the shuttle into town which comes and goes when you call, but its a bit haphazard, one time it's 2min away and the next 20 min away so not reliable if you have dinner reservations. We used Uber a few times, actually. But the shuttle was needed in the pm coming back from the town. There was a really large family group checked in around us on the last day about 15 plus. And we're messing around in the pool right outside our apartment at 6.15 am. This is way too early to be woken up by other people not being considerate of the neighbours. All in all a great stay a few minor changes would make it an amazing stay!

Ok, we just spent the week here in room 112- ground floor , no swim up pool access which is ok as we would have to pay ore for that option. I will start with the Pros: The pool is absolutely fantastic, clean enough, warm and huge. We based our stay on the pool as that’s where the majority of our time was going to be spent. Loads of lounges and the bar and poolside menu was pretty good. The reception is lovely and we appreciated the welcome mock tail ( champagne was also offered) and the free drink voucher to use later. The staff are all super awesome too. Now the cons ( of which there are many ) We had no wifi access in our room for 5 of the 7 days . To their credit after we complained we were comped a free breakfast- which was very average. The room is shabby and dirty, chipped furniture, grout in shower dirty, cigarette burns in outdoor furniture, doona had various stains , fridge was woeful and froze our milk and juice solid. Even after management looked at it still no luck. No privacy as the outdoor areas are open to walkways so we had the blockout blinds down whenever we were in the room. A good idea would be double rollers with the privacy screen . Also the sliding door could only be opened and locked from inside which is a shame because that would’ve been faster for us to get to reception and the pool so instead we had to leave via the room door and walk all the way around. It’s a big complex so it does take a while to work out where you have to go and easy to get lost at the start. The King size bed is actually two single joined together so there’s an actual gap down the middle- I’ve never experienced that before. Housekeeping didn’t clean or replace used tea/ coffee cups and we only had one teaspoon. All of the bathroom amenities are in pump pack bottles, they’re lovely but not topped up and halfway through our trip the handsoap and shampoo were running very low. Parking can be scarce , luckily we eat early and get back in time to secure a park . Speaking of that, it’s too far to walk to town but that’s ok if you have a car it’s only an 6 minutes drive - we went in to Macrossan street for brekky and tea every day. Having said all of that we will come back and bring the family purely because of the pool. It’s definitely not 5 star - maybe 3, no robes or slippers for example but I understand they’re not really needed in the tropics. Oh and also the spa in our room - as big as a 8 seater dining table ! and a total waste of space - no need for it at all.

Nice place to stay in Port Douglas. There is a pool “lagoon” that meanders through most of the property allowing swimmers to get in the pool right off their back patio. It’s a large place and would be great for kids. The restaurant is delicious. I heard from others that the spa is top of the line. At this location, you are not close to the downtown area so if you want to do the shops or restaurants you need to travel about 10 minutes. The apartment itself is warm and welcoming. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped and there is a washer and dryer.
