My husband and I stayed at the Ramada Resort Port Douglas for 5 nights in October 2013. We booked through our travel agent at home and check in was excellent with friendly service. Our room was on the third floor overlooking the parking lot and as other reviewers have added there is no balcony. A balcony would be nice but the resort is so beautiful we spent no time in our room. The room was large, bathroom was large and bed was comfortable. There was a small fridge in the room, as well as a safe. Breakfast at the resort was good and the big Australian breakfast was $20 per person. For $10 you could have fruit, cereal, toast, juice and coffee. We had full breakfast included daily which was great. Great service in the restaurant. Lots of chairs around the pool area and the pool area is beautiful and tropical. As there are many trees it is very shaded. 4 mile beach is a couple minute walk from Resort. Town is a great bike ride but a far walk in the heat. We rented a tandem bike from the resort and had a great time. There is also a shuttle in to town for $5 per person each way that leaves on a regular basis. You can also buy a 3 day pass etc for a slightly better value. Overall the resort was relaxing, had a good restaurant on site, small business centre, close to the beach and good service. It is not close to town which was good for us. We felt like we were staying at a tropical paradise and if we wanted to go to town it was a shuttle ride away.
