“Perfect!”
Reviewed 7 February 2006

My partner and I spent 7 nights at Freestyle which we booked through wotif(-) for an amazing price.

We stayed in a very well maintained one bedroom apartment that catered extremely well for our needs. The bed was comfy and the Kitchen very useful if you are not looking to go out for every single meal. The pool was lovely and the BBQ facilities excellent. The spa was a little cool, as most Qld spas seem to be, but it didn't matter that much because the climate was not suited to sitting in a hot spa anyway.

Freestyle was only a 10 min walk into Port Douglas which we really enjoyed. We had initially planned to stay at the treetops resort, but were glad we didn't when we realised you need to catch a bus to get into town from there.

Out hosts Jason, Anne and "Thomas the Cat" were fantastic! They were always available to give great advice on the local attractions. I would recommend the 'Breakfast with the Birds", Snorkelling on the Reef, and a 4WD tour of the Daintree Forest. Resist the urge to hire a car to go into the Daintree, as the roads and creek crossings can be pretty hairy at times. Also, our tour guide in the Daintree, Ben, pointed out so many things that made our day 100 times better.

Jason also gave great advice on Dining in Port Douglas. His advice on ranging from budget dining to some of the more extravagant restaurants was invaluable.

Overall, our Freestyle experience was Fantastic. If you are after a resort with an extravagant cocktail and dining area then Freestyle is not for you. However, if your looking for somewhere that is clean, well presented, functional, centrally located with a beautiful pool area and fantastic hosts, I couldn't imagine there'd be a better place to stay.

We've just returned from a month of travelling in Australia and for anyone heading for Port Douglas, Freestyle is a great place to stay. The apartments are spotlessly clean and well equipped, comfortable beds and immaculate bathroom facilities and
thankfully, very efficient air conditioning! The pool area never seemed to be too busy and had plenty of shady corners to escape the tropical heat. On site managers Anne and Jason have lots of info about restaurants and shopping, places to visit and will help you sift through the dozens of tours available to help you find the best ones for you. When you arrive Anne will give you a quick run down of the area and suggestions on the best restaurants and shopping from budget prices upward. There is also a computer and email facility which is available free to all guests. Freestyle is a 5 minute walk from the busiest parts of Port Douglas and even less to the beautiful four mile beach.We spent 9 days there, it was peaceful, friendly and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

Reviewed 15 October 2005

Stayed with girlfriend for 4 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment which was very clean and a good size with nice balcony overlooking pool. We had no problems with the apartment at all. The hotel is in a really good location just 5 min walk from beach and village. There were a few families around so seems to be suitable for couples and families alike. Its an owner managed business and Anne who ran it was very helpful (even if there was a bit of a tendency to throw tour leaflets in my direction when I asked questions rather than get a real local knowledge). When I booked the accommo I also called the hotel directly and negotiated a really good rate of $130 per night, which is great value versus rest of the area.

Only negatives were the fact that jacuzzi wasnt that warm and there was no video or stereo in room but that was probbaly disclosed up front and I wasnt paying attention!
