The staff were super helpful before we arrived and after we arrived. The room was nice and quiet. The free extras were wonderful: towels, bikes, shopping carts... We stayed three nights and wish it had been seven.

We stayed here for 7 nights and had a wonderful time. Whilst we were not in the actual By The Sea apartment building we stayed in their newly renovated 3 bedroom apartment called Jelly Baby. It was amazing! Clean, well stocked kitchen and view of 4 mile beach. Walk across the grass and up the path to the beach entrance....

Had a great 5 nights in PD, the girls are really friendly and helpful. They really go above and beyond to make sure you get the most out of stay. Location is great right next to the beach and just a short walk from shops and restaurants! Also a 5 min walk to Anzac park to watch a beautiful sunset!

We have just enjoyed an amazing stay at By the Sea Port Douglas. Have stayed at some great 5-star places, but the wonderful staff here make BTS a standout. They are so friendly and professional at the same time, they truly are wonderful ambassadors for Australia in general, and Far North Queensland in particular. The room was clean, bright, spacious,...
