lovely apartment in a perfect location. Very quiet, clean and well thought details.

We have stayed at the Le Cher Du Monde apartments seven times in the last 10 years. The service has always been friendly and nothing seems to be too much trouble for the staff. The units are large and airy which helps in the tropical climate and the prices are very competative. The apartments are in the centre of town within walking distance of shops and restaurants, if you go to Port Douglas you must visit the 'Tin Shed' or Combined Services Club as it is also known - good food, good service, good prices.
Although in the centre of town the units are quiet and most over look the swimming pool which is super clean and well presented, as are the pool side furniture and BBQ's. A lovely relaxing spot to return to after day trips or just to 'veg out' and read a book or walk along Four Mile Beach.

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor seem to be bit a tad bigger.

After spending 2 nights at the rather ordinary Ramada Treetops resort at Four Mile, we moved into town to stay at Le Cher Du Monde.
We've stayed at quite a few places in Port, but we'll certainly stay here again. The location was excellent and the rooms were large, light and clean. They are self-contained apartments, which we prefer, as there is extra space, you can make you're own breaky and don't have to worry about housekeepers coming in everyday. Fresh towels are always available for a small charge.
As it is situated on the main street, you'd expect a bit of noise, however our room was so quiet! We are a younger couple without children and prefer to stay in smaller places rather than large resorts which attract families. Le Cher is suited to those people wanting a quiet, no fuss break.
We had only booked three nights, but decided to extend it to six.
It really is quite tricky choosing accommodation in Port because there are just so many choices, however, I would highly recommend Le Cher Du Monde.

We have just had a week at La Cher du Monde. What a lovely surprise, having booked it on the internet without much background, it was in the perfect location within walking distance of the beach, the restaurants, the Marina and the shops. What more could you ask for! It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and the pool area was quiet and the banana loungers comfortable. Gordon and Rae were most helpful when needing information about appropriate excursions. Because they don't encourage young children it is a perfect place for a quiet holiday. We will be back!

Room Tip: Best rooms overlook the pool area

Very nice serviced apartment. Wide open space that feels nice in a tiny town (not much to do except lay idle or take tours to nearby areas
Internet price intolerable and unreliable, better go to the coffee shop across the street to drink a cup of coffee and get unlimited free WiFi

Room Tip: the price was OK

There's two ways to stay in Port Douglas. One is in a large resort a little out of the centre of town and you have to pay top dollar to get bussed around all the time which is annoying. Having stayed at the Sheraton and Radisson 5 years ago I swore I'd never do it again.

The other way is to get an apartment on or just off Macrosson St which has a kitchenette. You can buy some food at coles and cook if you want to. If not you can walk out your front door and enjoy some truly excellent dining opportunities less than 100 metres from your hotel room.

Le Cher Du Monde isn't a resort - it's not meant to be. They provide you with enough sanitaries, towels, and utensils to get you through your first night or two there. After that you're on your own and need to go to the supermarket across the street and pickup your supplies. The pool, is smallish compared to resorts and the rooms are a bit more packed in that you'd find in the resorts.

Having said that, the room I had in the Sheraton had a smaller bed, less living space and a tiny balcony compared to Le Cher. It also had no kitchenette so I was forced to eat from expensive restaurants the whole time I was there (two weeks of restaurant dining is VERY expensive). I loved sitting out on the balcony at Le Cher with a glass of wine listening to some music (bring your own compact cd player, keep it down and be sure to turn it off after 9:30pm to respect the other guests) - it was awesome, we had a great time.

Rae was fantastic about booking tours etc. She gave us good advice not to book a reef tour on a day that was too windy. We were talking to people the next day who had a horrible experience throwing up because they'd gone out that day - so she know's her stuff. Plus you get a free bottle of wine when you book with her - AWESOME :-)

In short don't expect Le Cher to be a resort - but who wants one??? For what they're trying to deliver Le Cher enabled us to have a truly wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking macrossan st.

We were treated well by the person on the desk on arrival on the Monday 15-8-11 who was very helpful and friendly. The location was central and within 5 minutes of the beach, river, Yatch Club, and all amenities. Reasonably priced, good facilities and if your looking for a quiet place to stay which is kid free, this the place.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool
