Stayed here for my wife's 50th birthday and found everything to be as good as you would expect for the price. Even arriving there by small plane, 4WD and boat was an adventure. Flying up we spotted whales breaching to start off the excitement.
The service is excellent, the food was restaurant quality and the location spectacular if you like to be miles from any contact with the outside world surrounded by the stunning Daintree rainforest. An added surprise on the fishing trip, apart from the fish, was bumping into a small group of young people who had berthed their yacht at a small island and were frolicking completely as one with nature while we had a bbq and snorkelled amongst the coral. If you enjoy exploring natural habitat to take in its beauty while completely relaxing with first class service this is an excellent place to be. The chef even went to the trouble of making a birthday cake for the wife on her special day just to top it off for her.
We stayed in a Deluxe Retreat room up a rise that had views of Weary Bay and was a stone throw from a walking trail. It was not the most expensive room but it was well appointed, clean, and had lovely panoramic views stretching across one side.
The staff were friendly, courteous, well informed, flexible, attentive, very efficient and welcoming. The place is extremely well run and maintained.
All in all a memorable four day stay, highly recommended.
