We stayed here April 20-27, 2012. At $95 AUS per night, it was a very competitive rate, certainly for Port Douglas. Our room was on the 2nd floor, over the pool. At that time of year, the place was fairly quiet and not full. I do recall a few nights when we could hear a few other guests yakking away late at night on their balconies, as we were all at fairly close quarters in the complex. We told the management about it and the problem was addressed. The room itself was a fairly small studio apartment with kitchenette, but with the balcony the space was adequate for the 2 of us, considering the price. The couple who manage the facility kept it well maintained and it seems the guests did their part, e.g. cleaning up after themselves when using the barbeque and eating area by the pool. The location is pretty much perfect. It's a 5 minute walk, straight shot down the road to beautiful 4 Mile Beach. It's a 5 minute walk in the other direction to the downtown and Macrossan Street, which is a small price to pay to avoid the noise of downtown. This isn't a beachfront property, but close enough without what I expect would be a very expensive beachfront price. You are expected to pay for the whole stay at the front end. Coming from North America I found this to be a bit of a suprise, but I got over it and just made sure we had a room we liked before moving in. I guess that's the way things are done in Aus.
