If you are looking for a hotel room look elsewhere. If you want a wonderful and unique way to experience the rainforest of Australia, this is it! The accommodations were comfortable. The food was quite nice and the atmosphere was spectacular. I stayed for a week and a half and enjoyed it all. The couple that own the place were so nice and attentive to our needs. I left with an entirely positive experience that I'll never forget.

We stayed here for one night in May. It's the off season, so there were very few other tourists, but the service and the accommodations were excellent. The whole place is situated in the jungle, with as few of the trees and plants cleared out as possible.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, as were the locals that we met there. I would highly recommend Crocodylus to small groups or families traveling together.

The staff at Crocodylus were so accommodating to my large group of friends! After studying sustainability for a semester in Australia, this could have been a more perfect, relaxing and interesting place to stay. With so much going on nearby from horseback riding to kayaking to snorkeling..there was never a boring moment. It was amazing to be truly in the rainforest. I recommend the night walk with their guide, in which we got to see a variety of nocturnal creatures. The cabins are cosy and tranquil especially when it rains! This is for sure the place to stay if you are looking for a rainforest experience with down to earth, knowledgeable staff.

Thanks Steve and Jack for our amazing stay!

We stayed for two nights in April 2012 and had a great time. Crocodylus is the perfect place to stay in the daintree, comfortable rooms, right in the rainforest, just a short distance from beautiful cow bay and they have everything you could possibly need right there.
Oh and did I mention the fantastic meals available, very friendly and helpful owners, and loads of different activities available. Night walks in the rainforest with Possum are great and should be on everyones to do list.
Thanks!

For those looking for a Rainforest relaxation this is the perfect place to come without breaking your budget! You are nestled right in the heart of the rainforest , the couple that run the place are so welcoming and the food is to die for and cheap too would love to stay there again.

We stayed two nights at Crocodylus and were very happy there. The dwellings have wood floors, screened walls, and tarp roofs. The rooms were very clean, the sheets were fresh and new. The bunks were comfortable. The place is run by a couple and their son. They have a little restaurant serving three meals, and the food was really good. There is also a communal kitchen so you can cook your own. There's a big dining/social area. We found the atmosphere was very warm, relaxed and family-friendly. Definitely a unique experience staying in the middle of the rainforest.

very friendly staff, very well equipped kitchen, very good setting in the middle of the rain forest, good shower facilities.

No free wifi. Not just that, the price for internet is exuberant.

Thanks for the great review and fyi to all on the internet charges:

We charge PC internet access at $2 for 20mins or $5hr - all access to internet in the Daintree/Cape Tribulation area is by satellite or mobile broadband only so prices are very high for very little bandwidth. Most places up here don't offer internet access at all.
