“Beautiful settings, luxurious style”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Paradise Links.
We had a beautiful room with the best view!
The room is quite small but the layout is good, and there are storage to put your bags away.
The bathroom is beautiful, a nice bath and shower. The bathroom is quite big.
The balcony is amazing, the view over the garden is amazing. The resort is very well maintained and it feels like paradise.
The main pool is fantastic, beautiful!
The only fault is the carpet in the bedroom. The carpet has lots of stain, it is not dirty as you can see it has been cleaned but there are lots of stains.They should remove the carpet and have tiles instead. That's the only fault.
Otherwise, it is very beautiful. It feels like a Hollywood street! :-)
Reception has lots of leaflets for the attractions around Port Douglas. The staff was kind enough to recommend trips for us.

Thanks for the great review, YES the apartments and Links rooms all had new carpet laid 2 weeks ago. This had been one of our ongoing maintenance programs. Early Feb was the first time we have had vacancies, hopefully you will get back to Paradise and inspect, the carpets are fantastic. Good luck for 2014. - JC

What a wonderful time I had at Paradise Links!

From that "wow" experience as I walked into my 1 bedroom apartment to the wonderful lagoon pools (one even under cover which was fabulous) and the friendly staff. The lush surroundings make it feel very private, and I heard no sounds from the people in the apartment next door. The apartment was outstanding - extremely well maintained and clean. Bed was extremely comfortable. Flat screen TV in lounge room and bedroom (DVD also in lounge room). Air con and overhead fans in both lounge and bedroom as well. A huge bathroom included a laundry (hidden by doors) with full sized washing machine and dryer. Everything you needed was in the kitchen - convection microwave, stove, dishwasher, full sized fridge. Lovely sized balcony which was much used - and I loved being able to walk out to it through both my loungeroom and bedroom! Parking was easy within a "gated" complex. I loved walking the paths to get to the pool... past lots of lovely plants and flowers. Although there is no restaurant (these are apartments not a hotel after all), a very short walk through the back of the property brought you to the Golf Club next door where you can sit and wile the hours away sitting on their balcony watching the golfers with a wine in hand! Meals not available during February (when a lot of places in FNQ are closed), but I believe they are fabulous when they are! There are 2 bbq areas and although I didn't use them, they certainly looked well equipped and as everything at Paradise Links - clean! Wifi is available in apartments but is expensive - best use the free wifi in the Reception area which, unlike a lot of free wifi, works extremely well! I found it quite pleasant going down early in the morning taking a coffee with me to use the wifi. It is of course available 24/7.

And to top all of this off, the help and friendliness of John and his staff could not be bettered! They are extremely knowledgeable about the area and the trips and sights available and can book all of these for you. If you don't have a car, a shuttle bus pulls into the complex every 15 minutes to go into town. You are also able to hire a car from Paradise Links.

A wonderful place to stay and I certainly wouldn't bother looking anywhere else when I next come to Port Douglas - I will be back!

We were here for one week in January before traveling to Melbourne.

The apartment was very spacious and clean, and quiet.

The grounds were beautiful, swimming pool very clean

The staff were amazing and helpful nothing was too much trouble, if we needed clean towels etc. these were provided.

Would love to return!!!!

My husband and I returned to Port Douglas to celebrate 10th anniversary where we got married. This accommodation is modern, well kept and very clean. There are two BBQ areas which we used and which were very clean.

The pool was fantastic and not overcrowded, with shade if required. One of the gems is the second pool by the tennis courts which was virtually unused. it felt like our own private pool.

Paradise Links also provided great facilities in our apart hotel room, which meant we could have breakfast in the room and keep drinks and some food for our stay. also had free parking space.

The staff were really friendly and helpful and their extensive knowledge of Port Douglas was great.

Also well linked to the main town by local bus stopping at the resort

I was looking for somewhere relaxing to stay on a very quick weekend to Port Douglas to visit the Great Barrier Reef. Found this place and it was like having my own apartment in paradise! Clean rooms, lush surroundings and the most amazing pool.. what a great way to wind down after a day of snorkeling!
the staff are very helpful in recommending activities, tours and rentals and the bus to town picks up every 15-20 minutes! so convenient!!
Thanks for a wonderful stay!

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.
