Freestyle Resort Port Douglas
Ranked #4 of 42 Hotels in Port Douglas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 June 2014

BAD STUFFS FIRST:
* The toilet seems to leak a little bit but we did not ask for it to repair since we were quite busy exploring the rain forest and the reef.
* We found one dead roach in the living room. We just figured a lot of bugs are in the rainforest so we did not report to the hotel.
* Spa is nice but not heated, so it is not very useful at all. Too bad.


Location: Walking distance to town (restaurants, shops) and Four Miles Beach (2 blocks).

Room: We got a 2 bedroom apartment. Super clean. Kitchen is well equipped so we prepared breakfast ourselves. TV, shower, everything works fine.

The hotel ground: Nice. Small. A few nice lily ponds that my kids fnd tiny frogs and fishes, and other insects.

Service: The very helpful and very nice lady (Anne) at the hotel help us to get oriented when we arrived and gave us a lot of very helpful suggestions. She also helped us to book the reef tour. But this is mostly a self-service apartment, so don't expect a lot of service.

Others: Pool is nice but it was not heated (that's OK). We used the laundry/dryer facility next to the parking lot. Laundry is AUS$4 and dryer is AUS$4. If the hotel is busy, then there is not enough parking in the garage.

Room Tip: They have BBQ area next to the pool. I think someone actually caught a fish and was cooking it.

We spent 3 nights in Port Douglas at the Freestyle and found it to be very enjoyable. The rooms were clean and well kept; and Jason and Anne were terrific hosts.
The location was close to downtown Port Douglas which was a real bonus - Port Douglas was a real highpoint on our trip and I would return to Australia just to visit Port Douglas!

A perfect place for three friends on a three day holiday. We did not spend a ton of time at the apartment due to a missed flight but found it spacious, clean and comfortable. The upstairs can be set w two twins or a king, as a loft or closed off with sliding wooden shades. The upstairs bathroom included a bathtub/shower. All beds were comfy, especially after a long day of snorkeling! Wi-if was included, and the kitchen fully equipped, but it's also a very short walk in to the main stretch of restaurants and shops (less than 10 minutes). A truly excellent location and a great value. A great place to make a home base for snorkeling, Daintree tours, etc.

Freestyle Resort is a wonderful little resort with everything you could need at a very reasonable price. From the moment we arrived Anne was extremely friendly and welcoming, providing us with information about the area and helping us settle into our one bedroom apartment.

The room was large, extremely clean, well maintained and modern. It has a nice lounge area with flat screen TV (with some foxtel channels), a kitchen and decent sized balcony looking over the beautiful pool area where most nights we had a friendly little green tree frog come visit. The bed was very comfortable and a great shower with toiletries provided. If you are located in the upper levels there is no lift, so you need to carry luggage up stairs which isn't a real problem.

The grounds of the resort were lovely. Unfortunately the weather wasn't fantastic so we didn't get a chance to use the pool, however we did walk around to enjoy the tropical gardens and use the communal BBQ area.

The location was also perfect for us, with a pleasant 10 minute walk (or less) to the main street or the Marina and a 5 minute walk to the beach. This means it's quieter then accommodation on Macrossan St. If you have a car there's under cover parking available.

I would highly recommend Freestyle Resort for those wanting value for money and exceptionally friendly service.

Jason and Anne really enhanced our stay at the Freestyle apartments as they're so lovely and helpful. The apartment we stayed in was recently refurbed with a lovely tropical outlook, the apartments are fully self contained and have everything you need. Parking is free, and central Port Douglas isn't too far away.

Anne and Jason hosted us for the third time in our recent visit to Port Douglas...The resort has been upgraded to a very high standard - although it was beautiful when we last visited in 2008! To be met with such warmth and to have this for the week we were there helps to make this feel a bit like home. The BBQ facilities on site meant we could enjoy the resort for a dining option on a couple of nights - perfect for a quiet night in. The location is superb, 2 minute walk from the beach and another short stroll to Macrossan Street. Port Douglas has retained it's charm and is such a magic location to visit. We will be back and I would recommend to others that they come and see for themselves why this resort has such a great history of reviews!!!! Thank you Anne and Jason and we look forward to seeing you again next time!!!

A lovely place to stay in Port Douglas: location is good with an easy walk into the shops & restaurants in town, and the owners were lovely and very helpful. The apartments were very nicely decorated and all recently renovated, so very clean and inviting. Our kids enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed lounging by it! Our only criticism was that there was very little storage space if you have a decent amount of luggage and no drawers at all (with the exception of bedside tables).
