“An Ideal Place to explore Paradise”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

The apartment had everything you need to begin the exploration of Port Douglas and surrounding areas. The room was well presented, air conditioned, comfortable and very clean. The TV was small compared to the larger flat screens in other places but fit for purpose. There was no undercover parking to the unit we were booked into. A large swimming pool was close by and the property was well secured with electronic gates to maintain privacy. No Restaurant on the property but very good restaurants within a short distance. Very quiet neighbourhood. Recommend.

I stayed in a two bedroom villa for 5 nights just before Christmas. We found the resort pretty much as you would expect from the other reviews on TA, the team were really friendly and helpful, the site spotlessly clean, even down to the BBQs. The resort is out of town but there are plenty of options for eating locally and the Port Douglas shuttle stops at the door.
Sitting on our balcony at sun rise listening to the birds and insects was fabulous.
The only slight criticism and which makes this a four star review rather than a five is that the Villa was looking a little tired, plenty of scuffs and marks etc..but that should not stop you choosing this resort.

Thanks for staying at Paradise Links Resort. Your comments are valuable. We had programmed our yearly maintenance program and painters started at the resort yesterday, first time in 6 months we have had a chance. Scruffs will be gone during the next fortnight. Good chance to come back and check us out, once again thank you - JC

Our parents were over from Ireland, visiting us in Sydney and we treated them to a trip to port Douglas!
After weeks of trying to book accommodation, as there was such a large selection, we went with Paradise links and we definitely made the right choice!

From the booking process to check out everything was fantastic!

JC checked us in and provided lots of information.

The villa was beautiful! It was a 3 bedroom and the rooms were perfect size!! They were furnished well and we wanted for nothing!

The pool area was amazing and we spent most days relaxing there. A shuttle bus runs into town every 10/15 minutes and collects you from reception.

You can organise day trips through reception also.

We went on the calypso snorkel and dive and they collected us from reception. It was a fab day!

The only problem was 5 nights wasn't long enough in Paradise!

I would highly recommend this for couples/groups of friends/ families.

There is no bar/restaurant at the resort however cooking facilities in the villas are 5* and there is a huge selection of restaurants in the main town!

Thanks to JC and team..we will definitely be back!

Darren and Katie :-)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paradise Links. We had arrived in Queensland on an overnight flight and were delighted to find that not only could we check in at 10am in the morning but we had been upgraded to a three-dedroom villa. (Very lucky!) The villa was wonderful with beautiful views over the golf course. Our kingsize bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Could not fault anything about this place.

Paradise Links was a great place to stay. John and Shirley were very helpful in making our holiday enjoyable, from offering tips on the best excursions, routes to take, and even the best places to stop in the rainforest. They also gave fabulous suggestions for dinner restaurants.
Our apartment was wonderful - very roomy, clean, and comfortable. The pools were beautiful, especially the largest cool pool by the tennis court. We loved the grounds at this resort. This resort was a 5 minute drive into town and a 2 minute drive to four Mile Beach.

Room Tip: All rooms were well positioned.

John and his crew provided service we never experienced before, nothing was a hassle and all of our requests were met with a smile. We booked a 4 bedroom apartment, 3 bed apartment and 2 Links Rooms - all of which were above our expectations. Yes, you do need transport to the Main Street, but you do from any resort unless you stay in Macrossen Street. We are regulars at Port D and have stayed at six others - Paradise Links is the only one we will be returning to, and can't wait!

We spent 5 nights at Paradise Links in a 2 bedroom apartment from 30 Dec to 4 Jan 2014 and enjoyed a wonderful stay.
The resort is well located and easy to access, we love the idea of a gated complex and the garden and pool area were stunning.
We requested and were fortunate to be allocated a ground floor apartment nearby the pool, that was very modern, spotlessly clean,beautifully furnished and spacious enough for 3 adults. The kitchen was well equipped but a little on the small side with limited space for storage of food but we worked around that okay. There was a starter pack of tea, coffee and milk that was more than adequate for those who had not previously shopped. and also a toiletries pack in each bathroom.
Bathrooms were well appointed and again spotless with a pack of toiletries in each., I found the shower over the bath a bit slippery and almost fell once so would have liked the option of a rubber bath mat for safety purposes.
The bedrooms are large, both with a TV and had plenty of wardrobe space and comfortable beds.
The pool area is lovely with cool grass surrounding it, sail shades to get out of the hot sun. The pool is stunning with an impressive rock waterfall and lots of ledges to sit on. The water temperature was always perfect for swimming no matter what time of day (open from 7 am to 9 pm) the and during our stay the pool was never that busy or noisy on some days we had it completely to ourselves..
Parking was good and we always managed to get a spot right outside our door which was good for loading and unloading.
The staff were lovely and most helpful, at check-in there we was a slight hiccup with the booking agent but it was very quickly sorted and not an issue. The staff will do bookings for tours and other activities, (they booked an evening sail for us) and reception also had DVD's,books and pool toys for loan.
Wi-Fi is free in reception though we found we could also pick it up around the pool which was handy.
The resort is convenient to 4 Mile Beach, the IGA Supermarket and only a short drive to Macrossen St (the heart of Port Douglas) and the Marina (where all the cruises and snorkeling excursions depart) We found being closer to the Captain Cook Hwy a bonus when heading out for the day.
We had an early evening flight home out of Cairns and were fortunate to be able to arrange a late check-out for a minimal fee which was well worth it on a 36 degree day.
Paradise Links exceeded our expectations and we would like to thank the staff for an excellent stay. We will certainly return and will recommend it to family and friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in a ground floor apartment which gave us perfect pool access.
