“Loved staying here”
Reviewed May 30, 2009

We stayed at the Freestyle Resort for 3 nights and just loved it. Upon arrival the lady at the front was so friendly and welcoming. She gave us 2 beach towels to take on our Great Barrier Reef trip and even called our tour company to confirm our snorkel tour for us the next day. She then walked us to our room and gave us a mini tour of the room.

The room itself is like a mini apartment with a spotless kitchen complete with fridge, microwave, dishwasher, and cookware. So convenient and economical to go to the supermarket and make your own meals. Most restaurants in Port Douglas are pricey in my opinion. The room was also very nicely furnished. There is a mini safe in the room, but they do charge you by the day for using it.

Would stay here again and I highly recommend.

I recently got married in Port Douglas and had several family and friends stay at Freestyle. Anne & Jason could not have extended a warmer welcome to us all and catered to our needs ranging from babies and kids through to adults. The rooms were very clean and modern including large flat screen TV with comfortable seating in both 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. The amenities and pool were great; we did not have to go in search for anything. Lots of information in the lobby for day trips and tours.
My only regret we didn’t stay longer! Certainly a place to stop, relax and unwind.

Thanks again Anne & Jason you made my wedding stress free and everyone only had words of praise for Freestyle.

We had been waiting for this Holiday for a long time and it would be our 1st offical as a family so we went with our son of 6 mths.. and from the minute we arrived Anne was amazing and made us nothing but welcome. Nothing is too much trouble for them and any info you need they have in and are willing to help marrange your day which is great. The rooms are spacious CLEAN and well fitted out with everything that you may need down to dish washer powder and washing liquid tea towels you get my point ... Anne also suggest a few places to eat which were great.. The only now fall for us near our Accomadation was the Peppers beach club it is beautiful to look at and we tryed the BBQ night A WASTE of money. That was the only negative the Quicksliver trip to the Reef worth every penny. But i would love to thank Anne and Jason for everything you were great we miss you Oliver sends a kiss THANK YOU XXXXXXXX

We have just had a wonderful stay at the Freestyle Resort. The managers Anne and Jason could not have been more welcoming or helpful during our stay. The rooms were lovely and clean and the surrounds great. Loved the pool! Thank you Anne and Jason for making our holiday special.

We spent a very enjoyable week at this resort.
The proprietors could not do enough for us and were very helpful/knowledgable re all the local information.
The resort/self-contained rooms were very clean and comfortable and had everything needed for a pleasant stay.
It was a short walk to the town's main street which had loads of bars and eateries plus well stocked supermarket.
Tip: The Combined Clubs (aka The Tin Shed) situated next to The Marina does good value food/beverages in a setting belying its prices.

Great family-run hotel with outstanding rate -- esp. with the off-peak discount. Manager Ann was very kind and helpful with travel tips, and amenities included FREE Internet access (the only one of a dozen hotels we stayed at in Australia), nice pool, quiet residential neighborhood but still within a walk (about a mile) of town center. Room was clean and bright, new decor and TVs. An outstanding value and memorable stay for us. I signed up with tripadvisor.com JUST to spread the word about this hotel -- nuff said!

A warm welcome and staying here was something we will never forget! We felt treated more as a family friend then paying guests, nothing seemed too much trouble for the owners. Genuinely friendly, well laid out, spotlessly clean and a pool with jacuzzi to cool down in on those tropical days, and a pleasant balcony with a full size dining table. What more can a person want? The Freestyle is a short walk from town and the bars and restaurants, likewise you can walk to the boats that offer reef cruises, although most provide transfer buses as part of the deal.

We booked a 2-bedroom apartment, which came complete with a 2-ring electric hob and microwave (it would have been nice to have a proper oven but with everything else so spot on, this was no big deal, although I get some stick when I did not notice this until I had brought back the shopping!) for a family reunion, us being from the UK the others from Sydney; it was the perfect place for such an event.

While staying here we went on two different reef trips and would particularly recommend the “Calypso” catamaran. Another great day out was with Daintree Safaris, who operate a very personal service, taking no more than 6 people; the driver/owner of the company shares his wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm about the local wildlife.

Would we go back? Well, it’s a long way from the UK, arguably about as far as you can go, but we loved “Port Dougie” as the locals call it and we loved the Freestyle; we wouldn’t rule it out!
