Cathy was extremely helpful with good advice about tours and trips and we could charge it all to our room which made it really easy. The Lovely Loft was ideal for our family of 2 adults and 2 children (14, 11 & 5) with loads of rooms and separate rooms if we needed some quiet time to ourselves. By The Sea is in the best spot in Port Douglas with a one minute walk to the beach without crossing a road and 5 minutes from the nearest supermarket.
We enjoyed the pool and the beach and loads of free use of things like fresh beach towels, eskis, bucket and spade, bodyboards and barbeque.
A small improvement would be if the internet access was free/included.
The staff at By The Sea in Pt Douglas could not do enough for us, they made sure we had a great time. I highly recommend By The Sea in Pt Douglas. It is so close to the beach and the main shopping strip. Brilliant.
By The Sea is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Port Douglas. The room was spacious and clean. The location is fantastic. You are within a 2 minute walk of both the beach and the down town shops and restraunts. You are close to everything but still feel like you are in a quiet part of town. The staff are wonderfully helpful. One of the biggest advantages of stayin at By The Sea are all of the ammenities which are offered to the guests. This is a place to stay if you are coming from a distance. You will not need to worry about packing beach towels, chairs, toys, etc. This is also a great place to stay if you have children. I would highly recommend By the Sea to any of my friends.
By the Sea Port Douglas is a most wonderful place to stay! The new owners have done an amazing job creating an oasis for those traveling. I completely agree with everything mentioned in previous reviews.
Here is my own personal story: When we had a difficult time on one of our tours. due to flash flooding, By The Sea's response was extraordinary. They went out of their way to make us feel better by personally contacting the tour company. When negotiations did not go so well, Wendy kindly offered us the use of her own convertible sports car to use for the day. How amazing is that?
I highly recommend By The Sea to anyone traveling to the Port Douglas area. Their warmth and quality of service exceeds no other.
By the Sea lived up to expectations being just across the road from the beach and yet nice and handy to the shops and restaurants. Great place to stay if you dont have a car as you are able to walk to most places. The staff were very friendly and gave helpful advice about where to visit and the good restaurants to eat at. Our room was described as cosy and it was very compact but all we needed for our stay, being cleand and quiet. It was nice to have the private patio where we could sit outside.
