As a couple of "seniors" we stayed at Peppers for 9 nights in July 2013. We were very courteously received and taken to our penthouse suite by the Concierge Gavin. The suite has a wonderful outlook over the pool. We had full cooking facilites including a dishwasher and a lovely barbeque on the balcony. There was even a washing machine and dryer. The bathroom was well appointed but we were a little disappointed that there was no bath. Also the tiles in the shower were quite slippery, so I think some grab rails are warranted. However we asked for and received from housekeeping a rubberised bath mat which helped some. The place is extremely clean and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Our accommodation was not in the main building but in a wing with a lift. For anyone even slightly disabled I would suggest a room on the ground floor in the main building would be preferable, saving a walk via 2 pool gates to get to the wing. Peppers is about 5 minutes stroll to the beach where this is a little cafe serving breakfast and lunch. We would happily stay at Peppers again if we had a car, but without one, we would probably look for something closer to the shops, restaurants and the marina. All the staff were charming and helpful. Special mention for Gavin the Concierge who looked after us very well. Our thanks and best wishes to you all.

Room Tip: Our penthouse suite was very quiet.

Dear SydneyMidge,

Thank you for taking the time to post regarding your recent stay with us.

All of our one, two and three bedrooms are self-contained, even with a BBQ on the balcony as you mentioned. Sorry to hear that you were a little disappointed about no bath - there are no baths in any of the rooms.

Good to hear that Housekeeping was able to assist you with the non-slip mat for the shower. I will be sure to pass on your comments to our housekeeping team regarding your feedback in the cleanliness.

Thank you for the amazing feedback regarding the 'Charming Staff' - though in particular Gavin in Concierge - He is a true asset to our team and our guests.

Please ensure that you contact the resort direct (portdouglas@peppers.com.au) on your next visit so that we can look after you as return guests.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind regards,
Jeremy Nordkamp

My wife and I stayed at Peppers for 9 days in August. It was absolutely brilliant. We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor, which was fully self contained with a full kitchen and a bbq on the balcony. Ideal for cooking up a couple of snags and enjoying a beer while taking in the fantastic views overlooking the pool. We had continental breakfast as part of our deal, which was really good with a great selection of food available. If I was to be picky, the only fault I could find was that the beds in both rooms were in fact only king single beds pushed together, instead of a true king sized bed. This was the only disappointing part of an otherwise awesome holiday. This was one of the best and most relaxing holidays we have ever had, only made better by the wonderful staff, who were there at any time to answer any question or recommend what to do or where to eat or whatever. Brilliant.

My in-laws stayed here, so this is just a review of the times we joined them with our young kids. Their room was a penthouse, but no lift meant they had to climb 3 flights of stairs. Their well equipped room overlooked the pool. The swim up rooms looked better though, especially with a family. The beach style pool was the best thing I saw at the resort. Approx 50m long with sand covering the ground for most of it. So perfect for the kids! Location is also great, walking distant to centre of port Douglas.

Dear scos,

Thank you for taking the time to post regarding your recent stay with us.

We agree we are lucky to have such an amazing lagoon pool; for families to relax around during the days. The kids and the big kids love our pool.

We do have lifts at the resort though do not service all rooms; we try to make this as clear as we can at point of booking and make every attempt to fulfil our guests requests.

Hope you had a safe trip back to Perth and we look forward to welcoming you and your in-laws back to Peppers Beach Club.

Kind regards,

My husband and I stayed at Peppers for 8 days in July and absolutely loved it. We had a one bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool and could not fault anything. In fact I have kept telling everyone how wonderful our stay was. We thought the continental breakfast was delicious and did wonder what other people on trip advisor were complaining about. Seasonal fresh fruit yoghurt juice and a choice of toast muffins and Danish pastries. We did not tire of it and to eat in such beautiful surroundings was just fabulous. Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful
Stay. We will be back

The location is perfect, walking distance to all restaurants, shops, beach and market. The hotel pool was beautiful, nice cocktails at the bar, and staff were all helpful. We had a one bedroom apartment with balcony and bbq, very spacious and comfortable. It would be good if the aircon in the gym could be cooler ( was too hot and bit stuffy in gym ) but thats being picky! A nice, quiet resort.

Pool is great for kids and that's as good as it gets.

Not sure where to start....
I'm not one to complain but I guess I think it's best to warn some people before they pay to stay here.
We have stayed at Peppers in Broadbeach several times and the service and accommodation is fantastic. However I can't even compare this to their standards.
The cleanliness of the rooms is poor. I'm not sure if it's because they are under staffed but I wouldn't even call it a clean.
I wouldn't bother paying for the continental breakfast as it would be cheaper to buy your own and have it in the room with the complimentary coffee & tea.
Overall it was disappointing given the amount of money we paid.
