Response from PDRetreat, Manager at Port Douglas RetreatResponded 1 week ago
You wanted to check out one day early when you checked in - it had nothing to do with us or the property, you hadn't even seen the apartment. You told us you wanted to leave early when you were completing the registration form. You...More
We stayed here for three nights in August and it was most suitable for couples as they do not allow children. Hence the pool area is a lovely quiet location to swim, sit and relax and enjoy your holiday. BBQ area looked great with adequate...More
Stayed here in early August. The pool and BBQ area make up for the shortcomings of this Resort things are getting a bit dated but the price reflects this .The only major complaint I have are the mattresses which in our case needed replacing .Other...More
We have always stayed here on our visits to Port Douglas. The accommodation is clean, adequate for a couple in a self contained studio apartment. Hosts David and Joyce are very friendly and obliging. The key attractions for us is that the retreat is quiet,...More
The Port Douglas Retreat was a decent choice. If it weren't for the pool area I wouldn't have scored it as high. The grill area was well used but it would be nice if there were some plastic dishes in our rooms to use instead...More

Port Douglas retreat is very close to the shopping and eating areas in Port Douglas. You can walk everywhere, 5 min walk to beach and same to shops. The pool area is lovely with plenty of sun loungers, 2 bbq, 2 tables and chairs to eat your meal and also a fridge to put your beer or wine in. Clean toilets by the pool also so you don't have to run up to your room. The managers are very obliging without being intrusive. The kitchen facilities are basic, toaster, saucepans, frying pan, hot plate, microwave and fridge, sink but very small work bench area. We are ex Port Douglas residents who stay here when we visit each year. We stay here because of the position and also the price is reasonable. If we don't eat out we usually cook meat on the bbq and take salad down to pool area and eat there. Visit the "Tin Shed" for sunset views and meals at reasonable prices and the surf club for lovely lunch or dinner by the beach. Try the tempura prawn roll there. You will have a fabulous time.

We could not get a park on the premises, but no trouble getting a park outside. When you book, ask for a park at that time. A little inconvenient, but the accommodation is reasonably priced and off the main street.
