We got a very good deal on our room rate, so felt we got good value for money at this 4 to 4.5 star resort. The location nestled in the rainforest, with excellent communal areas open to views of the sea and surrounding forests is perfect, and only a 10 minute drive to Port Douglas. The swimming pools, athough not large, fit perfectly into the setting. The bungalows have a very secluded feel with nice decks overlooking sea and forest, and although just a little tired, are very nice and spaceous with nice bathrooms. A big highlight for us was the food, very well cooked, innovative and fresh, and not too expensive. The staff were always friendly and helpful, we will definitely be back!
