“Annual Pilgrimage to Port Douglas”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Central Plaza once again has delivered....
This was the fourth time we have stayed at Central Plaza and we have never been disappointed. The apartments are exactly what is needed for a great holiday, close to everything, extremely helpful hosts (Iain and Fiona), clean well appointed apartments and a fantastic pool...

Central Plaza provided us with all that we needed for our 10 day family holiday. Ian and Fiona were very hospitable welcoming us when we arrived. They were very helpful and knowledgeable about tours and things to do in Port Douglas The apartments were very spacious, clean and comfortable. I loved the idea that we could hire beach towels for our entire stay which saved lots of room in the suitcase! The kids just loved the pool and spa, big enough for many people to swim! Central Plaza is only two blocks from the main strip of Port Douglas and even though we had a car, we found it very easy 10 minute walk to all the restaurants and shops. Central Plaza not only is close to everything you need and provides a great place to stay but is also very reasonably priced compared to other apartments which makes a family holiday a lot more affordable. You will see us again!!! Thank you

We finished our 6 week trip in Australia with 6 days in Port Douglas, we found the Central Plaza on the internet and it looked like it had everything we needed, we were more than pleased when we arrived the apartment was very spacious and comfortable and a fantastic place to relax before our flight home. The location was just perfect a short walk to Macrossan Street & the marina. Port Douglas is a perfect place for a trip to the Gt Barrier Reef, the Daintree and Cape Tribulation, I would highly recommend Central Plaza for families or couples.

We chose the Central Plaza because of its excellent reviews and were very happy with our choice. Iain and Fiona couldn't have been more helpful with advice, suggestions and booking tours for us. The apartment was spacious and clean with a good sized bathroom. Everything was provided to make our stay easy and we also took advantage of the great swimming pool area. The only minor comment is that having unused rooms locked off from the lounge made the apartment quite dark, necessitating having the lights on even during the day. Otherwise a great experience and we would definitely return!

This accommodation is well deserving of it's good ranking on Trip Advisor. We requested a ground floor apartment and were delighted with it. Spacious rooms and very clean. We were right beside the pool and loved our large, private balcony. The well designed garden meant we didn't feel exposed even though the pool fence was 2m away. No problems with noise. The lovely hosts were eager to help with anything we could possibly want. Within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants, we'd gladly return!

We had an awesome time when we stayed at Central Plaza. The apartment was incredibly spacious and we loved sitting on the verandah overlooking the fantastic pool. The whole family had a great time. Thank you for a wonderful stay - we will be back again!

Room Tip: If you can handle stairs, we recommend up on the second floor!

I stayed here a couple of years ago (am looking at coming again soon). It was perfectly located - 5 minutes walk into to town which was close enough to be convenient, but far enough away to be away from the hustle and bustle. The apartment was clean and well appointed! Will definitely stay again
