We enjoyed our stay here. On the plus side, the apartments are spacious - more than enough for 2 people - with large, smart bathrooms, a very comfortable bed and a wide choice of programs on the TV for sports fans. The view from our first floor ocean view room was pleasant - it's not directly on the sea but you can still see the ocean through the trees. The breakfast was plentiful, with a good choice of food and the chef cooked pancakes on request. The staff were helpful and friendly and very knowledgeable when it came to local tours. The free laundry was useful. The fridge had real coffee, fresh milk and cold water provided on arrival. The location is excellent - right by the netted off section of the beach by the lifeguards. On the negative side, very little to say. The furniture is cane and foam cushions so won't be to everyone's taste and wasn't the most comfortable. It was a bit more expensive than other places in Port Douglas in a similar location. The pool is on the small side and right next to the smallish breakfast area so if you like swimming in the early morning, you'll have an audience - or you will have to go to the sea! Other than that, it's hard to find any minus points. On a final note, the hotel is primarily couples oriented. If you have children under 16 you won't be able to stay as no children under 16 are allowed.
