Five adults stayed at the Portside for four nights in March, 2006. We were surprised and delighted by being given the Penthouse suite rather than the three bedroom apartment we had booked. What a pleasure it was to stay in the penthouse with our own lap pool, 3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen,washer and dryer, granite countertops in the kitchen and separate den, with patio table and furniture and bar-b-q on extensive patios. Not to even mention the view!Everything super clean and nicely decorated. Sharyn took care of us, and answered any questions we had, and made excellent recommendations for restaurants and trips. As stated in another review the main pool water is cool, great for the tropics.This is architectually a beautifully designed complex.
It was close to the town, on the main street, so we did not have to walk back to our base up a steep hill after a full day out. We were glad we had chosen the Portside, as other resorts are situated on the steep hill behind the town. One downside is the traffic noise at night when trying to sleep. We just closed the doors at night.
We were able to get four nights for the cost of three nights by booking through a Queensland tourist web site. All five adults agreed we could not have made a better choice for accomodations in the Whitsundays.
