This hotel was fantastic, we had a swim out room, you get straight from your balcony into a warm pool which is shared by only 6 other apartments! Make sure you ask for a room on the sunny side (one side is sheltered from the sun). The room was confortable with a fridge and sink, very comfy bed. Bathroom was small but had everything you need.

The town of Port Douglas is a nice quaint town with good cafe, restaurants and shops. We went snorkling oin the barrier reef, it was amazing! We also went on a Daintree tour whcih takes you into the juingle, was good but not worth the money, you can drive there yoursels.

Would highly recommend Port Douglas and this hotel!!

We did alot of research for our stay at PD as it was going to be over 8 nights. We decided on Oaks Lagoon and were absolutely thrilled.
The service from reception was exceptional. One side of the complex is shady and the pool is really cool so we asked if there was a room on the sunny side and were lucky enough that someone was checking out the night after. This was really important to us as the main reason we got a swimout room was so we could soak up the sun and swim while our 9 month old was sleeping (without being too far from him).

The 1 bedroom swimout was everything we could have asked for - great kitchen, massive comfy beds and heaps of room for storage everywhere. The study in our room was the perfect size for the porta cot and all of our bubs things.

Our little one had car sickness on the way back one afternoon so I was grateful for the full laundry facilities in our room (washer, separate dryer and even a laundry trough!) We had major trouble putting the seat back in but Murray from reception stayed back one night and worked it out for us - were we so grateful for his patience!

The location of the accommodation is excellent - so quiet at night but close to town (less than a 5 minute drive). Nice short walk to the beach but we didn't even go into the water there as the pools at the Oaks Lagoon were exquisite.

It is a great place for couples of any age and for young families too. We met some wonderful people while we were there and they were just as thrilled with the accommodation and what it had to offer as what we were. A couple of people I met are actually regulars to the Oaks, which is no surprise. It is truly a relaxing place to stay.

We just can't wait to go back to Port Douglas and if we do, we will definately stay at the Oaks!

Oaks Lagoons is a modern facility but is not a hotel, just apartments, no bar or restaurant on site.
We stayed in a hotel spa room which was part of a package tour.
It was good value, we stayed only 3 nights which was fine, but a week in a small hotel room with only tea and coffee making facilities would not be a good idea.
The rooms were clean and well appointed, the pools were great and the staff were really helpful.
The restaurant in neighbouring Treetops Resort was great.

Not sure why this hotel got some bad reviews. We found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. Thanks to Danielle at the front desk who helped us with everything we needed to know. Our apartment was clean, fresh and on the ground floor with a lovely sunny disposition including all the creature comforts we expected like a dryer. The down side is definatly the distance from town, but the bus does stop close by. Alll in all a great stay and we would return.

We were so impressed with this place. We had a second floor room – good size with fridge, kettle and sink and a nice bathroom. Décor was clean. We also had a hot tub on our balcony which was a lovely surprise. The pools were clean and an OK temp – but who’d want to spend time in the pool with such a lovely beach nearby (although you can’t swim in the summer months). The hotel location its only drawback; it is about 40 mins walk along the beach to the Port Douglas town centre but there is a shuttle bus that leaves every fifteen mins to town and back (we recommend buying a day ticket if you’re going back and forth – it works out cheaper). Staff were very friendly and helpful too. The hotel does offer a housekeeping service but they charge – this wasn’t a problem for us though as we were only there for two days. There is no restaurant or room service but again, this shouldn’t be a problem as the Port Douglas town is so lovely with many places to eat. Overall a great hotel.

We had a ground floor apartment with open plan kitchen/diner/living room and swim out pool. The apartment was clean and spacious with washing and drying facilities for clothes. Staff were very helpful

Hotel next door had a nice bar and a shuttle bus runs from there every 15 mins into Port Douglas until midnight.

Great restaurant called the Beach Shack within walking distance so do not have to go into Port Douglas every night. Local shops sell good food for self catering. Complex has outdoor BBQ area and seating.

Four mile beach is a short walk and it is a great location for visiting the Daintree Rain Forest, Cape Tribulation, Great Barrier Reef and Kuranda; all of which are must dos.
