Port Douglas - Feb (Accommodation)

Hi All,

My partner and I will be in Port Douglas Feb 2014 for our honeymoon, we are looking for somewhere luxurious to stay in during our time there. We would ideally like a jacuzzi, either inside the room our outside, and possibly kitchen amenities. We were looking at Peppers, or the Sheraton Mirage, could anyone provide any ideas?? Cheers.

Coconut Grove is very nice if you can afford it, penthouse rooms are private with your own Jacuzzi.

Avoid the Sheraton until they remodel. It is a DUMP!!! We had a 1700 sq ft suite that was stuck in the 80s. Bad, bad bad . We were there for 5 days and they never swept the sand off the floor. Mold and peeling paint on every exterior surface. Overgrown plants blocking paths. Broken landscape lighting. Food and drink service at the pool was non existent. Front desk staff were the only bright star in the place. Nice people.

We had a large jacuzzi in our bathroom but wouldn't step foot in it. Didn't trust the cleanliness and concerns about bacteria stuck in the jet pipes. Looked like it hadn't been used in a long time.

I'm another avoid Sheraton.

It has been that run down for quite some time.

Also look at Sea Temple and consider staying out of town at Thala beach. It's more romantic only drawback is the travel to restaurants etc.

The Sheraton has just changed ownership, let's hope the new owners show the place some love in the near future.....
