We stayed for eight nights this month. The Peninsular is a well managed, lovely property in a great location on the beach in Port Douglas. Some 30 or so rooms and no kids.
We had room 14; first floor facing the beach; all mod cons. This is not a new hotel but the room was well maintained, clean, tidy and well furnished.
Service was just right for us. The buffet breakfast by the pool was fine and varied each day in some small way so as not to be boring . . . . The bar and restaurant were bringing in new waiting staff while we were there so the service here was a bit hit and miss at times.
Not cheap, but then Port Douglas is a fairly pricey place if you want to be in the "in" places near to town.
A wireless internet connection would be a major improvement.
