Great Apartments, Helpful StaffPosted Oct 6, 2014
Pros: Position, staff, rooms
Location: 10 min walk to the beach, or a 2 minute drive. Good restaurants and a bottle shop really close, town centre only 1.6km.
Great Apartments, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine/dryer etc. Staff really helpful with things like beach towels and great advice about trips, restaurants, coffee etc. Will definitely be back

The MediterraneanPosted Sep 18, 2014
Pros: Spacious, quiet no screaming kids, nice pool area. parking to the door.
Cons: Bathroom and shower. Kitchen and exhaust. Needs a high and low fan switch for air conditioner (very annoying)
Location: On the port Douglas Road, You can catch a bus into town, but we hired a car form Hertz $700 10 days. Heaps of things to do.
Two older persons booked in, found host very informative. 15 steps up to room ( I have sciatica). Room had an over powering "freshener " smell. Had to leave doors open. My guess is that in Port Douglas everything can get pretty smelly with the humid climate. Bed was good. Two large singles pushed together. Bathroom - well I don't like those showers in baths. There were no safety grips, so I had to manage to climb in and out without going "head over tit". Again a powerful "freshener " smell. Enough towels etc. Kitchen, don't try to cook prawns as we did, the "exhaust" is just an oil filter and there is no connection to the outside, so all the cooking smells go straight back into the kitchen. That smell took two days to get rid of. Outside pool very nice but too cold ( I have stayed in other resorts so I know what temp a pool should be). Caretaker trying to save money on power Conclusion. The 15 or so units are privately held, so owners want to maximize their profits. Our unit DEFINITLEY needs a makeover, but with a total cost to us of $2601 for 10 days incl airfares return from Melbourne, can we really complain?

Location...but I would not call it 4 star hotelPosted Sep 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
Central location, not too far from the central street, but on a quite busy Port Douglas Road, so if someone does not like noise like myself I wouldn't stay there again. In addition, the road was under construction, so there was a prominent smell every morning and afternoon has been a mixture of dust, pulverized concrete and diesel fuel... and it was impossible to get to the beach as there was the road was fenced off for construction, one have to drive or walk long way to get to the beach It was advertised as a self contained studio, but it actually is a standard hotel room - no microwave, small fridge, so it was a bit disappointing. Overall, it is a solid 3 star place - you get what you pay for and the rates were reasonable.

Highly recommendPosted Aug 5, 2014
Stayed in the single apartment, was massive. Very clean. Great service. Well priced compared to what my other friends paid. Only downside is that it's a 10 to 15 min walk from town.

Nice apartment, clean, spacious and comfortablePosted Jan 20, 2014
The Manager Craig was superb. Helpful and informative. All the facilities were good and enhanced our stay. Perhaps blinds on the windows would add to the privacy. It was a bit of a walk in to town, but their were regular, cheap buses. Port Douglas itself was a great experience. A lovely friendly feel with lots of retail and dining possibilities. The Marina was a great venue for a sun downer and $11 for a cone of prawns and a drink was excellent value. The trip to the reef is a must and our boat, Wavelength can be highly recommended, the crew were fabulous and with only 20 passengers their was an exclusive feel to the whole experience.

private roomsPosted Sep 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Our 2 day stay was very relaxing, and the pool was a lovely spot to escape the heat. The room was private and very clean and comfortable with all we needed for our stay. Security parking was a bonus too.

Clean hotel, nice friendly service. Probably a bit too far to walk into the main Port Douglas shops.
