“Great Place”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Port Douglas is a beautiful holiday destination place. Its close proximity to the great barrier reef, rainforest, outdoor activities and short distance drive to Daintree was great. Our family had a wonderful time in Port Douglas on top of that, our stay in Bay Villas Resort made it all possible, our room was spacious and clean, the swimming pool has great BBQ facilities area, we did not have to dine out. Staff were excellent and very helpful. Value for me, definitely will come back and recommend the place to our friends.

The staff was very kind and nice...they gave us all the tour options available. The location was very good but I recommend to get a car as we did so you can move arround, specially from cairns where the airport is, to port douglas where the closest point from the great barreer reef is located, which in our case was the main reason for travelling there.

Stayed in a suite May this year, great staff, our bus was late, they left access to the keys and directions so we could get after hour access. It was the end of our trip and the free laundry was appreciated. Alas we were on the top floor and there are no elevators

Room Tip: there are two pools, very quiet location, I suspect all rooms are good

I would highly recommend Bay Villas Resort to everyone. They are fantastic value for money and the staff, especially Ann are just so helpful, knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with.
They helped me organise a special hamper to be put into the room and also a voucher for a local restaurant.
The resort is lovely and clean and the amenities are fantastic, I will definitely stay here again.

Highly recommend this accommodation. We stayed in a two bed apartment with our young children. We had everything we needed at hand and the desk staff bent over backwards to help us book trips etc. I am a very fussy traveller and couldn't find one fault with this accommodation. Definitely love to go back one day.

A week spent here, end of April 2014, was great. The apartments are well designed & equipped, & with the pools are very clean. It's a nice stroll to the town (or the beach) with plenty of holiday shops & restaurants. Reception staff were friendly & knowledgeable about the area & trips & tours available.

Room Tip: We enjoyed an upper floor room.

We stayed in a 1 bed apt. for 5 nights week beginning 28/4/14. The complex was very quiet as I think everyone had gone home after Easter and Anzac hols. We had the pool to ourselves which was lovely. The apartment was clean and spacious with rattan furniture in the lounge and a zip link bed in the room. It was great to have a full kitchen and a laundry area in the appt. too. The reception area had lots of useful info. and Anne was very helpful and friendly. Good advice on the Daintree river cruise , to use use Solar whisper.
It's only a short 10 min walk into the centre of PD. Maybe a little dark if you use the back road but fine. We used a small torch to light the path.
We also did a self drive to Daintree and used a CD commentary bought from Anne. It was quite informative about the plants etc you would see and a lot less expensive than a tour.

A very reasonably priced and appealing apartment with all the basics we needed and a few extras.
We would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

Room Tip: Worth paying for the 1 bed as they had better kitchen facilities. We were in 21a which had a lovely...
