My wife, adult daughter & I stayed at Bay Villas for 10 x days 16-26 June.
We had a 2 x bedroom apartment which had everything we required. Each room had an aircon unit, plus had a fan. We had an out door area the unit was well equipped for self catering if required. Another bonus was washing machine & drier.
We also used the outdoor BBQ by one of the pools several times.
Above all the apartment was we clean & well appointed.
To walk to Four Mile Beach is 5-6 minutes as is to the main street shopping area and approx. 10 mins to the mariner. (we did not have a car)
The staff at the Villa are very friendly and most helpful, plus offer good advise and can book any trips you may wish to do.
Over all we found Bay Villas had everything we required in the accommodation we wished for.
If you want room service ,porters, butlers & silver service stay at the Ritz !!
Thank you Bay Villas for helping make our stay more enjoyable , especially Vicki.

Room Tip: We had a down stairs room ,in a corner ,couldn't see much but was cool & roomy close to the...

Great Location; excellent services in the rooms... Friendly, helpful staff who have a desire to ensure a good stay. I would recommend Bay Villas if you're wanting a relatively inexpensive place to stay that's close to the Main Street of Port Douglas

This place is the best to stay in Port Douglas. Value for money. The location is only a 10 min walk to the shops or beach. The apartment overlooked the pool. The staff were amazing, and helped us with things to do around Port Douglas. If I go back to Port Douglas, I will stay here again.

In my opinion is a fantastic place to stay in Port Douglas. Not only is the location convenient but the service and the quality of the accommodation is outstanding.
This service and information we received was helpful and accommodating and made our holiday one of the best yet.
The level of amenities inside and outside of the complex our first class.
In reading some of the other comments I find them to be unfair I have now stayed there on three occasions and have found the staff,the rooms and the amenities to be equal to what you would find at its properties charging 3 to 4 times the price.
I have travelled the world and normally staying at the Park Hyatts.
I have no hesitation in recommending this to business so shirts if anyone else wanting the most fantastic holiday in Port Douglas.

Room Tip: All rooms are great as I have stayed in several rooms over my time spent

The boxy room was overpriced and the service was average, they also charged a "rebooking fee" and charged my credit card without my authorization. I will not be rccommending this place to anyone and won't be staying there again

Dear Jes,
when you make a booking and then do not show it is standard practice that you will lose your money. You should try and get a cheap airline ticket and then at the last second not show up. See how far you get asking them to hold the ticket open for you.

We on the other hand offered to hold the booking open-ended for a year.

We could NOT take payment without you first handing out your credit card information. So why you would say it is unauthorised is not clear me.

Your review is so clearly out of line with the experience of other guests that it is not be trusted.

Lovely spot to stay and the friendliest service in town.

The unit was very well equiped with everything we required, and immaculately clean.

Staff were amazing, they went above and beyond at every request.

I will be coming back!
