Villa San Michele
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 August 2014

For location, excellent service and more than very good facilities, why would you stay elsewhere? Located in the middle of the main street, Villa San Michele is surrounded by restaurants and great shops, and is only a five minute walk to either the beach or the marina. Olivia and her team provide excellent, helpful service, and we booked all of our tours and excursions through the office - at no extra charge. Our room was spacious and very well fitted out and included a mid stay service. Great value for money. We would definitely stay there again. (We are a retired couple).

Beautiful building, modern and spacious apartments, well maintained gardens and heated pools. Excellent location - central yet quiet, with adequate on site parking. Add to that the warm and friendly staff, who are always ready to assist with anything from booking a trip to providing expert advice and you have a dream holiday :-)

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor and on the south side are the quitest

Great central location. Staff very friendly and helpful. Apartment spacious, clean and homely. Was great to have our own private balcony. Adequate kitchen facilities for us. Two swimming pools were very good.
Would certainly recommend it.
We are a retired couple.

Room Tip: Best rooms not facing street frontage.

During our last Australian holiday we stayed at 5 locations and the Villa San Michele was easily far & above any of the others. Lovely spacious rooms, private balcony, charming decor and the mod cons were top of the range. Throw in the excellent location right in the heart of Port Douglas with a varied range of bars & eateries right on your doorstep and easy walking distance from most attractions and you've got a real winner. The only slight hiccup was no lift facilities but the reception staff went out of their way to walk us up the front entrance and through an adjacent eatery.

Room Tip: If you experience difficulty with steps & stairs it would help if you bought this to their atten...

Have stayed at this property several times both on business and holiday. New managers Olivia & Al are good folk and now the apartment bathrooms have been upgraded there is little to fault. Ideally situated so that you can walk to the main attractions of the town with ease. Spacious, well presented and equipped apartments designed to suit the tropical climate.

Room Tip: Apartments away from the street on the ground and/or upper levels are better suited for the mature t...

I stayed for 4 nights July, 2014 with my 2 college-aged children. We we enjoyed being right in the middle of restaurants and shopping. Rattle and Hum across the street was a fabulous pizza place with a fantastic bar, happy hour, billiards, and outdoor seating.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. An excellent place to stay when enjoying all that the area has to offer.

Also, if you use up your data on the free wifi, they just give you more.

We stayed here for a night to attend a wedding in Port Douglas. We arrived on a red eye flight and paid for that night as well so we could check straight in. We had warned reception beforehand so they left everything open and ready for us so we could arrive and head straight to sleep without fuss. All reception staff I dealt with before arriving and during our stay were fantastic, particularly the very helpful lady who gave us plenty of advice to make our stay as great as possible. The bed is super comfortable and bathrooms have recently been renovated and look great. We didn't get time to try the pool but it looked inviting. Location is right on Macrossan St so a short walk to everywhere in the town. There is underground parking available if bringing a car. Note it is an apartment rather than a hotel so not serviced daily (most of the places around Port Douglas seem to be like this), which is fine if only there for a weekend like in our case.
