I've stayed at many hostels around the world and I must say that this one was one of the worst when it comes to customer service. Staff were very rude! They rolled their eyes when we asked them questions about the hostel facilities etc. and...More
The Pros: Port Douglas Retreat is very well located, being approx 5 minute walk from 4 mile beach, The Reef Marina and Maccrosan Street (the lifeline of Port Douglas). The apartments are very clean and tidy and there is free wifi. The king size bed...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.
