I was here for a 4 day business hike and have to say that the Outrigger whilst fine in many respects, lacks the wow factor of other resorts in the Port Douglas area. My room was on the first elevation and looked over the (small) pool. The king sized bed was extremely comfy and I loved the wooden floors, blinds and shutters that gave me the impression that I staying in a big old Queenslander-style home. Whilst my room didn't really have any facilities apart from basic coffee making, it was cool on the couple of hot days that I experienced and there was a nice big LED TV at the foot of the bed for lounging in front of. Fellow travellers commented that they thought the place was a bit dated but the price tag of the nightly stays compared to other hotels in the areas was on the cheaper side. It is only a short walk to the beach and down to the marina area where you take off for charter tours onto the Great Barrier Reef. A number of restaurants are also literally within a couple of minutes walk and the place is genuinely quiet and safe fro lone travellers. Check in/check out was not a hassle with friendly service. The room was serviced each day thoroughly. Only complaint was that the promised wifi was patchy the whole time I was there making work contact a little difficult and mobile service due to being at the back of the building was patchy. I could also hear some of the noise from what I'm guessing was cleaner's room first thing in the morning which woke me and there was some noise from fellow travellers. Overall though this is not a bad place to stay if you're budget conscious but still want somewhere reasonable.
