We stayed at the Port Douglas Sands for five nights in the beginning of June 2013. We had a two bedroom apartment with a balcony overlooking the pool. Our kids are 12 and 15. We felt very much at home. Breakfast was included, simple, but fine for us. Great that the unit had a full kitchen and we could cook and then enjoy our dinner on the balcony. There is also a BBQ available for use down by the pool. It was also really nice to have covered, secure parking underneath the building. The location was great - not too far to get into town, but also close to get on the highway. We also rented bikes for a couple days and this was a great way to get around.

The unit also included a washer and dryer was which a very nice bonus. However, the dryer was terrible. It was only rated one star and it took forever for our items to dry. We were not allowed to hang items out to dry on the balcony. Instead, I hung damp items in the closet and that worked.

I would recommend Port Douglas Sands and would stay there again sometime. We love the Port Douglas area.

We booked PSR to stay as on Trip Adviser reviews repeatedly said facilities are fine and Amanda will troubleshoot any issues we had.
on initial enquiry Amanda was quick to respond and arranged a reef and forest tours for us at my request - 5% discount!
We also arranged that nearer our trip then airport transfers etc would be sorted out. three weeks prior to our stay an email arrived -without my chasing- detailing all pick ups etc. very efficient and accurate.
We did have to rearrange a reef trip due to poor weather and again Amanda's team were very efficient and helpful.
the flat was clean, well equipped, all appliances worked. beds were comfy. air con efficient. we had breakfast provided each day which was simple but ok. overall it was a great place to stay. takes 25 mins to walk into town.

Clean family apartment, we stayed up on the top floor, nice view of the pool, amongst the palm trees, one of the more reasonably priced two bedroom apartments we could find online. 240pn less with a Hotel Club discount. Central location, 15 to 20 min walk into town, 10 min to beach, better after we hired some bikes. Bit of road noise. Free toast and cereal for breakfast is a bonus. Plenty to do in the Port Douglas area.

Stayed last week of June for four nights in 2Br. Half hour walk from main st, so as long as there is no rain its a good place to stay. Car park, pool, spacious rooms, great service. There are very few negatives about this place, unless you really go nit picking and really critiquing this place.
Great place to stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone. I would be very happy to stay here again. Hope to be back in a years time. I would like to thank them for the stay.

ONLY CONs: Bins need emptying more frequently, kids in pool before 9 make plenty of noise.

Room Tip: 2br is good for a family of 4.

The room was clean and the furniture was nice, modern and comfy.

The breakfast was a nice added bonus, not having to organise this with young children made things easier.

The air con while it worked well in the lounge/dining area, didn't penetrate too well into the bedrooms.

The kids loved the pool. Overall we had a lovely holiday.

Stayed at this resort for 9 nights. Very friendly and helpful managers. There were a couple of small issues with our apartment which were fixed very quickly to make our stay more comfortable. Lovely pool area. Breakfast was adequate - loved the Daintree tea! It was convenient being able to book any excursions from the reception area.
