This property garners mixed reviews; maybe that depends on what the reviewer is looking for? I think it is better suited to families than romantic getaways.
We stayed in a two bedroom "swim-out" apartment for ten nights in April and found it to be ideal for our family of four, inlcuding two children. The design of the aparment was great and it was well equipped with a washer, dryer, iron and ironing board, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and oven.
We loved the "swim-out" feature, but be warned that the pool was quite cool, even in April......
It is true that the apartments are not on the beach, but beaches in Northern Austraila are not swimmable in any case unless they have stinger nets. The beach is great to walk on, but that is where it stops.
The food in the restaurant was simply excellent and the cappucinos wonderful.....
Overall, we would go back without hesitation. Some folks seem to be expecting a Cancun like experience in Port Douglas, and are disappointed, but that is not what Northern Australia and the Sea Temple is all about. if that is what you are looking for, you might be better off at the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast....
