We found this a great place to stay in Port Douglas. The best location, right next tot he main street but very quiet. Rooms are really spacious and comfortable and you can self cater. They have a really great kitchenette which is located on the balcony which is a great idea. You have both indoor and outdoor living space and it can be all closed in with a louvered blinds for night. Good pool area and sauna. This place was really good value.

We liked this self catering hotel. It is in a central location close to restaurants bars and an easy walk to the port and the beach. The decor is quirky, our room large (also the bathroom) and the terrace opened out onto an attractive water feature. The kitchenette had all necessary facilitie. The restaurant is run independently of the hotel - we did not eat there but it seemed a bit dull - more atmosphere out on the street.

I have stayed here twice and both visits have been great. On our last visit we had a fantastic 1 bedroom apartment with lovely furnishings, overlooking the pool and with a lovely outdoor kitchen and huge terrace. It was an improvement on the last stay (although I was also very happy that time too) It appears they are slowly renovating room by room and the price you pay is GREAT for what you get. Best location in Port Douglas in my opinion. Friendly staff and the hotel is clean. There IS a slight damp musty smell, but its a tropical environment and the rooms are very well taken care of, no mould or anything as seems to be "suggested" by some other reviewers. I work in the travel industry and I would HIGHLY recommend Club Tropical Resort. Pay a little bit extra and get a 1 bedroom apartment rather than a studio. Lots of restaurants and day spas nearby to choose from.

We stayed at the Club Tropical last weekend and had the most fantastic time. We stayed at this hotel 17 yrs ago when it was brand new and we weren't disappointed this time either. The hotel clearly shows it's age but it was spotlessly clean. We booked a 3 br apt and it was huge. The location is the best in Port Douglas. Right in the middle of all the restaurants and bars. The markets and water is directly across the road. We will definitely stay there again. You can walk everywhere from the hotel. We wished we had stayed longer. Next time...

This hotel was great value for the money! The rooms were great - especially the in room kitchenette. Very handy. Bed was comfy, big TV, get balcony, and a huge bathroom! Plus, the staff were sooo friendly and helpful. The pool is also beautiful - it looks like a little grotto.

The location is also good - about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach but all the shops and bars are just outside.

Highly recommend.

The strength of this resort is also its weakness. The location is fantastic and you feel part of the hussle and bussle of Port Douglas. This makes it very noisey at night but also loads of fun. You need to weigh up the location against the noise. The pool gets loads of sun throughout the day and has a good spa pool.
