We arrived at the Eco Lodge to find that they had a power shortage, and no lights or airconditioning. The rooms are in desperate need of renovation and ours was 2 star standard. The power returned six hours after we checked in, we were not offered any refund for our stay. We left despite being charged for two nights and... More

Don't know what we expected when we went to Daintree but I guess it was something rather more luxurious than this! Staff were very helpful and charming but the place itself, for us, left a bit to be desired. The rooms were OK but rather outdated and in need of some "tarting up". Restaurant food was by and large OK... More

Don't believe everything you read in the other reviews here. I can only think that the Ecolodge must have done a major upgrade since March 2004. The rooms are great. The beds are perfect. The furniture is new and in keeping with the surrounds. The level of cleaning was very satisfactory, considering you are in a rainforest! And I would... More

We stayed at the eco lodge during our honeymoon, and I agree it is not 4 star luxury. Rooms are outdated in appearence, and even with the air conditioner on not very confortable (no insect spray available). But you are in the rainforest- expect to share your room with ants, mossies, we even had to fish out a spider from... More

I have travelled the world and stayed in the best hotels along with the most rustic. This is the worst place I have ever stayed. The location is beautiful, but there are better places to stay in the area if you want to be in the rain forest (Silky Oaks). The cabins are horrible. They are musty and damp. The... More

Although my husband and I enjoyed ourselves we wern't quite prepared for how rustic it was. We expected more amenities and more to do, espeacialy at night. The rooms are very average. However it is amazingly beautiful and the staff is sweet. If your looking for seclusion this is the place. Oh and the spa is wonderful too.

Spent 4 days at the Daintree in September of 1999. If you like the outdoors, but hate crowds, this is the place for you. The rooms have a screened porch in the rear that is elevated up into the jungle canopy, so you can watch the wildlife without be attacked by the bugs. take a 4 wheel drive tour in... More
