“Very Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

As we often do, we rely on trip advisor to assist us with picking our hotels. Paradise Links is another one that we choose that did not disappoint. We stayed 5 nights and are lforward to returning. Originally we had booked a regular hotel room, however in communicating with Liz via email we changed to a 1 bedroom so we would have the kitchen facilities. Speaking of email, they were very quick to respond to any and all questions we had, including before we even booked with them. Paradise Links is made up of individually owned units some of which residents live in, others are managed by Paradise Links while others may be rented via a realtor. Unfortunately while we were there a group of young adults had a very loud and lengthy party. The next morning we went to talk to the staff at reception. They could not have been more apologetic for the situation and granted our request of a room change with no hesitation They were not managing the noisy unit, but went to work immediately ensuring it did not happen again. We believe it was a very random situation because other than that night, we couldn't get over how quiet it was. The units were very clean and the beds comfortable. There was an air conditioner in the bedroom and the living room area both which kept the rooms cool. The bathroom was huge with a closet containing the washer and dryer. The kitchen contained everything you would need to cook with. One of the few small disappointments we did have was the website said full kitchen, however it did not have an oven, only a stove top, dishwasher, convection oven/microwave and full size fridge. I did see a response to another reviewer stating that they are updating the information on the website. It was nothing we couldn't live without but glad we saw it before we went to the grocery store. The only other small disappointment we had, is at other 1 bedrooms we have stayed at there has always been non perishable items left by other guests that we have had to use, such as napkins, paper towels, salt and pepper. Things of that sort would have been nice to have instead of purchasing since you'd never use all of them. They do provide a starter kit of dish wash soap, laundry detergent, coffee and tea and a small thing of milk for tea or coffee. If you would like more of those items they are available to purchase, not sure of the price. There were BBQ grills by each of the pools, with utensils and cleaning supplies along with a refrigerator which contained some condiments that appeared available to use. They have golf clubs and bikes that you could rent. There was a set of golf clubs we noticed the last day that said they were available to use for free at the driving range. There was a nice selection of tour brochures available at the reception area and they were very helpful answering any questions about the local area. I believe there were a few restaurants that you could walk to however not much around. They recommended a few, however we did not visit any of them. 4 mile beach is a very close walk, only about 10 minutes and became our morning routine, we would enjoy sunrise and a walk before heading out for our day. If you are looking for a sunbathing beach you may be disappointed with it because it's more of a walking beach, we did meet a couple that was, so that's why we put this disclaimer in. There was a shuttle that was available to go into town for I believe $5 each way. We did not use it, but saw quite a few people taking it. We only used the main pool which was very nice and open until 9p. There were an assortments of pool noodles available to use. Wifi was available complimentary in the reception area which was just fine for us, and the speed seemed good. Available to purchase in the room, however unsure of the cost. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return as 4 days was not enough to do all we wanted to in that area. We hope if you choose Paradise Links you are as satisfied as we were

We stayed for 8 nights and had a wonderful time at the resort, the kids loved the pool! The resort is well kept and very clean. Our apartment was very clean and modern, but the kitchen was far too small. The staff and more importantly liz were extremely helpful. When we were looking for a resort and came across paradise links the website and brochures indicated a full kitchen, our kitchen didn't have an oven, grill and a pantry. In my opinion a full kitchen would contain and oven, grill and pantry, this was a real disappointment. Could we have changed, perhaps, but we arrived late on thursday night before good friday so we needed to go shopping that night to have food for the next day. By the time you stock the fridge and unpack let alone worrying about the accommodation, it became too difficult. I also should mention we have a child with a disability. Still, advertising a fully contained kitchen should mean fully contained. All in all we had a great time at the resort, but the kitchen certainly left a bad taste in my mouth.

We arrived at paradise links a day early and they were able to accommodate us no problem, we also asked for a different room as we wanted somewhere a little more private which again was accommodated fully. We were perfectly happy here and our room still had the new carpet smell! Lovely big bathroom with corner bath. The rooms do not have safes in which is a shame as I would expect them as standard in today's world. The rooms are partly adjoining to a second room which appears to be more of a self servicer apartment. Free car parking close to the room which was good. Able to assist with trips and answer any queries, thanks very much!!

Stayed for 8 nights in a one bedroom apartment. The pool was excellent and you were able to
have a barbecue next to it which also had a fridge. The staff were extremely helpful and gave lots of advice on the area. It was really nice to have a pleasant stroll to the centre of Port Douglas
which was no more than a ten minute walk in the evenings .If we are lucky enough to come back to Australia we would definitely stay here .....

We stayed 6 nights and really enjoyed being here. We originally booked just a room but they allowed us to upgrade to a one bedroomed apartment. The original room was just like a hotel room and would have been fine for a couple of nights, but a bit cramped for 6.
The apparent was spacious and very well fitted out. We saved the increase in cost easily as we didn't need to eat out. A great benefit as the restaurants in port Douglas are quite pricey.
The staff here are very pleasant and helpful and the pool is fantastic.

We stayed here 4 nights in a 2-bedroom apartment. The grounds here are beautifully manicured and maintained. The apartment was spacious and meticulously clean, and had all the comforts of home. Wi-fi is only free in the reception area though, which is a minor inconvenience.

The property is located about 5 km from town, so if you don't have a car it is necessary to take the shuttle. The ride is $5 each way, which can certainly add up. If you are staying long enough to qualify, get a 3-day pass ($25) or a 7-day ($50) to save some money. Restaurants and shops are all downtown. There is not much within walking distance of the resort.

Lovely apartment/villa. Perfect grounds and pool area. Nicely furnished and the 2 bedroom we had was so spacious. Not far from the centre of Port Douglas. Shirley was really friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend. And would certainly book again.
