Nice on first impression, but below standard as to what is advertised. Close to shops and dining, some very excellent restaurants in the area. 1 hr drive to Daintree a must do and vey short drive to Mossman Gorge, a very beautiful area.

Stayed 7 nights and very disappointed at first but satisfied enough to stay on once we were moved to unit by the main pool area on second day.

On arrival we were greeted by very happy attentive staff (good start) and booked in with a minimum of fuss. Our villa was huge and extremely well equipped. Full kitchen, 2 bathrooms and large lounge room. Beds very comfortable. Once...

We went to Port Douglas in May 2017 for a family holiday. We stayed at this resort for 5 nights. Below is what we found: The reception staff was fantastic. They helped with all the queries and did their best to help us guide our first time in Port Douglas. There were some local residents who lived there but it...

I would never recommend this venue to anyone. Extremely disappointed. I booked this hotel after googling, thinking (from the website) that it looked quite upmarket. It is part of the Rydges group and the trip was purchased as a gift for a close family member and her husband who both had an extremely rough 2016. The curtains in the room...

It's difficult to find the words to explain our disappointment. Upon arrival at the hotel facility the first thing we noticed were the permanent residents vehicles and household items. After walking in to the half renovated reception area we were handed our key to room No 33. When we opened the front door our first impression was of the poor...

We booked an overnight accommodation at this Resort to celebrate a Birthday, unfortunately the Resort did not live up to our expectations. We had no idea when booking there was construction work going on and the fact the Restaurant was closed for dinners, something we had counted on. The apartment was difficult to find, it poured with rain, but that...

Agree with the comments in the other reviews. Great place to stay for people with kids. Plenty of safe pools and room to run around.Reception staff were fantastic,nothing was too much trouble and they re-arranged all our excursions which our travel agent had mucked up. Bus shuttle service into town was reliable and not expensive

We stayed for 4 nights. Our apartment was a one-bedroom house with well equipped kitchen/diner, laundry and shower/toilet downstairs, bedroom and shower/toilet upstairs. The resort was clean, tidy and attractive. The pool area exceeded expectations.
