“Heaven in the heat”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

John, Shirley and their staff were outstanding-nothing was too much trouble. They suggested great activities for myself and more importantly terrific ideas to keep my 13 year old son occupied. The accommodation was outstanding, exceptionally well maintained and extremely clean. The pool was fabulous. I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment to anyone and look forward to returning in the future.

Our extended family of 7 (3 generations) recently stayed in a lovely appointed 3 bedroom villa.

The resort is located a bit out of town - but to be fair all resorts in PD are! As we had our own car this was not an issue for us. we found the space perfect for our family including three small children (our eldest is 7).

The children loved the pool and amenities. the villa was spotless and modern. we were most impressed with the management who were knowledgable friendly and of great assistance and hospitable.

We believe this resort to be great value for money for those of a family - the local store is not far away and we were prepared for a starter pack only and thoroughly enjoyed our 6 day stay.

The apartment had everything you need to begin the exploration of Port Douglas and surrounding areas. The room was well presented, air conditioned, comfortable and very clean. The TV was small compared to the larger flat screens in other places but fit for purpose. There was no undercover parking to the unit we were booked into. A large swimming pool was close by and the property was well secured with electronic gates to maintain privacy. No Restaurant on the property but very good restaurants within a short distance. Very quiet neighbourhood. Recommend.

I stayed in a two bedroom villa for 5 nights just before Christmas. We found the resort pretty much as you would expect from the other reviews on TA, the team were really friendly and helpful, the site spotlessly clean, even down to the BBQs. The resort is out of town but there are plenty of options for eating locally and the Port Douglas shuttle stops at the door.
Sitting on our balcony at sun rise listening to the birds and insects was fabulous.
The only slight criticism and which makes this a four star review rather than a five is that the Villa was looking a little tired, plenty of scuffs and marks etc..but that should not stop you choosing this resort.

Thanks for staying at Paradise Links Resort. Your comments are valuable. We had programmed our yearly maintenance program and painters started at the resort yesterday, first time in 6 months we have had a chance. Scruffs will be gone during the next fortnight. Good chance to come back and check us out, once again thank you - JC

Our parents were over from Ireland, visiting us in Sydney and we treated them to a trip to port Douglas!
After weeks of trying to book accommodation, as there was such a large selection, we went with Paradise links and we definitely made the right choice!

From the booking process to check out everything was fantastic!

JC checked us in and provided lots of information.

The villa was beautiful! It was a 3 bedroom and the rooms were perfect size!! They were furnished well and we wanted for nothing!

The pool area was amazing and we spent most days relaxing there. A shuttle bus runs into town every 10/15 minutes and collects you from reception.

You can organise day trips through reception also.

We went on the calypso snorkel and dive and they collected us from reception. It was a fab day!

The only problem was 5 nights wasn't long enough in Paradise!

I would highly recommend this for couples/groups of friends/ families.

There is no bar/restaurant at the resort however cooking facilities in the villas are 5* and there is a huge selection of restaurants in the main town!

Thanks to JC and team..we will definitely be back!

Darren and Katie :-)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paradise Links. We had arrived in Queensland on an overnight flight and were delighted to find that not only could we check in at 10am in the morning but we had been upgraded to a three-dedroom villa. (Very lucky!) The villa was wonderful with beautiful views over the golf course. Our kingsize bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Could not fault anything about this place.

Paradise Links was a great place to stay. John and Shirley were very helpful in making our holiday enjoyable, from offering tips on the best excursions, routes to take, and even the best places to stop in the rainforest. They also gave fabulous suggestions for dinner restaurants.
Our apartment was wonderful - very roomy, clean, and comfortable. The pools were beautiful, especially the largest cool pool by the tennis court. We loved the grounds at this resort. This resort was a 5 minute drive into town and a 2 minute drive to four Mile Beach.

Room Tip: All rooms were well positioned.
