“Nice facilities reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

The apartment we stayed in has two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The bedrooms were large and each one had a huge bed and and en-suite bathroom, perfect for two couples or as in our case parents plus one teenager. We found the the beds comfortable. The showers are ok and everything was clean in the bathrooms.
The kitchen is dated but clean and had everything you need to be self catering.
The lounge is quite a good size with sliding doors opening out onto the back of the complex. Our only complaint is that the insect screens on the sliding doors had seen better days and didn't look like they would have kept much out.
The apartment also has a washing machine and drier.
We liked very much that pool towels were supplied in the room at no extra charge. The pool area is delightful and even though the resort is next to quite a busy road there is little traffic noise do disrupt your relaxation.
The resort has a restaurant by the pool, we had a meal there and found it very enjoyable.
This is not a five star resort but it is a good resort for families with nice facilities and at a reasonable price.

We only had a short stay at the resort during the Port Douglas Marathon, but took advantage of all the facilities that was on offer. The pool and spa is beautiful as is the bar/dining area .The food in the café was very good and drink prices reasonable, the service was great and the staff friendly. Our unit was exceptionally clean and spacious and both bedrooms have their own toilet and bathroom. We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely return next time we visit Port Douglas.

We stayed at the Resort for 5 nights which gave us an excellent rate for families - including a $10 breakfast for the whole family. Can't beat it for value. Beds were comfortable, with 2 bedrooms - each with their own bathroom - perfect for a family of 4. Included a lovely pool and spa area, a tennis court, they provided board games and boulles - well thought out facility. Excellent location with easy access to Port Douglas town and on the doorstep to the beautiful Daintree. We'll be going back!

We had a fabulous three week stay at The Plantation resort. Having spent weeks in hotel rooms it was great to have all the facilities of a home so we could cook in the unit and eat dinner off our laps if we wanted to, but also to have the convenience of a really excellent restaurant right on our doorstep. The food is excellent, portions are large and the service is really friendly. Bar prices area also as cheap as any of the pubs in downtown Port Douglas.

The town centre is about 7km away so you probably need a car (it's the best way to get from CNS airport anyway, I would recommend East Coast Car Rentals as easily the cheapest) although you can now hire bikes at the resort, and you can actually cycle quite easily on the beach as the sand is very compact. There is an IGA supermarket about a ten minute walk away, or a Coles in the town centre. The far south end of four mile beach is about a twenty five minute walk or a ten minute bike ride - the roads are quiet and there are cycle lanes - and you can walk along the beach to the town centre in about an hour. The bike ride takes about 15 or 20 minutes.

There can be some road noise in the units by the tennis courts but I ever travel without ear plugs so this was not a problem for us.

In all, a great place for an extended stay. Loved it!

This was a perfect place for my friend and I. 2 large king size beds with two bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, living room, and laundry. The villa was perfect. Plus we had mango trees right out the back doors. I couldn't eat them all there were so many falling from the trees. Just had to get them before the bugs did.

Great place, especially if you rented a car. It's set just outside of town. But it's only a 5 minute drive to get to the main street, or the 4 mile beach.

Rooms were clean. Towels were plentiful. Pools was clean and warm. The cafe wasn't open while we were there. But that really didn't matter.

would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The rooms with the mango trees in back are 45 and 46

Nice pool area with restaurant attached. 2bed apartment was good size and felt homely. Even though the resort is on the main road, traffic noise isn't a huge problem.

It's about 6km away from the town but there are regular buses to and from the resort, which then stops in at all the other resorts on the way. It's a really good service.

We had 7 days in a spacious apartment in Cairns and this was beautiful, then we had 9 days in Port Douglas, and we must say that the staff were very friendly and very quick with the check in. The apartment we found was on the dark side, and looking as if an update would bring it back to life. Beautiful setting with all the palm trees, yet only 6ks from the centre of Port Douglas, a car is essential. We found plenty to do whilst we were their.

Room Tip: Would suggest 2nd story as not a lot of privacy on ground level.
