“Xmas Day Dinner Package 2012”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

My family of 2 adults & 1 child dined here for xmas dinner 2012 along with another family of 3.

The price for the dinner pacakge was quite steep so I was expecting big things.
I was not impressed.
The food was avearge and the service was non existent.
I get that it was a buffet style dinner but a few friendly staff faces around the tables would have been nice.
The staff member designated to serve from the carvery table clearly did not want to be there.

The only saving grace of the day was the truly talented Michael Buble soundalike crooner in the corner who not only had a fantastic voice but also an unbeatable rapport with the dinner guests, especially the kids :)

The venue was truly beautiful too...the pool is so beautiful and inviting.

This is one of my favorite places to stay, also one that I keep thinking about coming back to. Whenever I think about a holiday the picture of sea temple just pops into my head. I actually stayed during feb 2012 but I didn't start reviewing then. There are many nice hotels in port Douglas but this one tops the list, the pool is the best ! Even in wet season the water is still
Nice and its definitely swimmable . Make sure you get a pool access room, nothing better than opening ur door to step in a beautiful pool, and looking up at the stars in the night sky while in the pool is priceless. I got a good deal as well, and it was worth every cent, clean room and spacious long sized spa. It was one of the most romantic night for me and my man. Will definitely return.

The Sea Temple is probably the nicest hotel in the Port Douglas area but, in actuality, is a true four star hotel. What makes it even nicer, though, is their customer service. From their check-in service,(showing us multiple rooms to choose from), to their staff at the front desk and restaurant, everyone aimed to please. We really enjoyed our time at the Sea Temple.

We stayed at the Sea Temple in a swim-up 3 bed room apartment in Febuary 2013.
The rooms were spacious, clean and furnitured well. I booked this through a Travstar.com.au and they were amazing and half the price. This apartment was privately owned and managed which made it $2000 cheap than the over the phone quote I received booking directly.

Most of the hotels are about a 5 minute drive from the city centre which is ok.

Some good advice
1 hire a car
2 Do your grocery shopping on the way from the airport maybe Springfield as the Port Douglas shops are super expensive
3 We stayed in room 137 and 138 and they were perfect
4 a must is to go to Hartleys crocodile farm

It was a great place to stay. We went off season so the pool was all ours

Hotel was great we stayed 3 night in a 2 bedroom with a plunge pool (RM 120) for our 20th wedding anniversary. The hotel rang us before hand to confirm our booking and inquired if we needed airport transfers etc. The call was unexpected and made us feel very welcomed. On arrival at our room we were greeted with a card chocolate and a bottle of wine to congratulate us on our anniversary. It was a nice thought its a pitty we don't drink. The room was spacious although its looking a bit tired should start thinking of a refurbishment. the pillows are flat ...all of them.... we used our pool every day and it was very relaxing after a long day sightseeing. There was a garage next to our room to keep the hire car out of the heat. B/fast was plentyful and the seafood platter for 2 would feed 4.
All in all we had a great time we would consider staying again.

Second holiday here, my wife and 3 kids shared a swim out suite, which is kiddy paradise and perfect for Parents too! Only tiny negative, this recent trip we had a hire car which was wonderful as the Resort is away from main village. Everything good with so much to do around here and the locals love tourists so please support this great Aussie tourist spot!
