We had a fantastic week in Port Douglas in November 2013 on our first visit to TNQ and the Reef from Melbourne. We travelled as a family with 2 kids age 5 and 7. Initially we were going to move hotels halfway through the week, but found the QT to be so well suited to our needs we extended our stay and cancelled the other hotel.
The pool was awesome - the kids loved it and adults too (swim up bar). The pool gets the last of the sun and you can tell a lot of thought went into the layout of the pool as it suits all ages.
Bazaar restaurant was superb - dishing out a winning daily breakfast on a par with any hotel we have stayed at.
The staff were all extremely helpful, and general manager Steve Oakley was particularly helpful with organising a day trip to the Barrier Reef for us.
We were a bit unsure how easy it would be to get in and out of the town centre from the resort, but the shuttle bus was super quick, easy and regular, in fact i don't think we ever waited more than 5 minutes before a shuttle arrived to drive us the 5 minutes to the main street in PD.
