We took a family vacation (husband, myself, and our 3.5 year old) to Port Douglas, our first visit there for 7 days during the end of May. The reception closes, if I remember correctly, around 5pm so be sure to have the lock box code in your reservation if you plan to arrive after then. The resort is spacious and the pool area lovely. We visited the pool closest to the reception area and it’s divided into 4 sections and we found one of them slightly warmer than the others.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment/villa so having our own garage was convenient for loading and unloading. But do expect if you’re driving anything bigger than an SUV, it’ll be challenging to get it to fit.
The apartment was spacious and nicely decorated. There are some basic starter supplies but be prepared to bring your own items such as detergent, dishwashing liquid (hand washing and dishwasher), paper towels, salt, pepper, etc. The provided body wash and shampoo/conditioner is small so keep in mind to bring more of your own.
The kitchen was small but we managed just fine. The dining and living area are spacious and comfortable which made it easier stay indoors when it rained heavily all day. The upstairs is carpeted so expect that it’s a bit worn but still clean and so nice to see over the balcony the lush green grounds, quite a relaxing view.
One recommendation would be to provide a picnic blanket with the waterproof siding. Since hiring an umbrella and 2 cushioned beach chair is $40, would have been nice just to have somewhere to lay down our stuff rather than on the damp sand.
The whole unit was clean and it was a good choice for us and an easy drive to the main street and flagged beach area. We didn’t interact much with the owners but when we did they were very pleasant and accommodating.
