The rainforest retreat is nestled right into the rainforest. The rooms are nice and well decorated, very comfortable and quiet. The retreat has a pool and great gardens. There is a really nice BBQ area available for the guests.
We stayed two nights and had a cooked breakfast both mornings which was very nice and big enough to keep us going most of the day. Breakfast was served in a delightful area by a fish pond - you really felt like you were in paradise.
The service was homely and personal. Although we arrived late and there was no one there to meet us, a note had been left with instructions on how to find our room etc and in the morning we had the area and the attractions explained to us which really helped out stay.
The restaurant was not open during our stay but there is a pub a short (2 min) walk away that served good food and was very friendly.
I will definitely stay here again if I am back in Daintree.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Daintree Rainforest Retreat is a small family owned motel. It sits nestled in the forest surrounded by towering trees and lush gardens. While we do not have a restaurant we do offer a covered BBQ area with its own sitting area and a fully equipped and comfortable communal kitchen together with 2 further sitting/dining areas. The Cow Bay Hotel is a 2 minute walk and while it is very close, it can be neither seen nor heard from the motel. Our rooms are cooled by ceiling fans and guests can further escape the tropical heat with a dip in our palm fringed swimming pool. We look forward to seeing you. ... more less
