Oaks Lagoon - Non Smokers beware of smoking policy

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 21, 2012

We were disappointed with our stay at the Oaks Lagoon because of the hotels policy on smoking near the pool area. All guests are allowed to smoke in and around the hotel grounds, which includes the apartment balconies. Other major hotels tend to have a dedicated smoking area which the Oaks Lagoon has not adopted yet. We have a young child and unfortunately our child and all the other people enjoying the pool had to breathe in the cigarette smoke from the chronic smoker who was in the apartment directly next to us. The man was smoking less than 1 metre away when he was on his balcony so we were unable to enjoy our swim out balcony and instead had to go to the beach. There was the occasional day that the our neighbour would go on a day trip so we made sure we enjoyed the pool on those days and ventured down to the beach when he was at the hotel. The hotels policy of allowing people to smoke in and around the hotels pools is disgusting especially when there are many young children around. After discussing this issue with the hotels manager he simply said that the hotels policy allows smoking on the hotel grounds and that if we wanted to move room we could but we would have to check out by 10am and return back to the hotel after 2pm, which would have been a real hassle moving our luggage around since we were only staying a few days.

A Fantastic Deal in Port Douglas!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 17, 2009

After getting such a fantastic deal on this place ($99/night for 5 nights) with travstar.com, I started to worry that it may be too small... alas, we were very pleasantly surprised!

We opted for a Studio Spa Room, which is so great for a couple without kids that are having a nice break! The room has a nice bathroom (with big shower + toilet / sink etc), built in wardrobe, sink, bar fridge, basic crockery (eg plates / bowls / cutlery / glasses for two), big bed, tv with dvd player and cable tv stations (movie channels, sports channels, free to air and a couple of others). Then, a private balcony with shutters, a table with two chairs and a spa bath - fantastic for the evenings!
AND both air conditioned AND a ceiling fan AND a ceiling fan on the balcony - ideal for the Far North Queensland heat!

In my opinion, this was a much better option for us than the Studio Swim Out (which has swim out access to a lagoon pool) as we could still use the pool during the day, but had our own spa at night. AND the Studio Spa is less expensive!

There was plenty of parking on site, the staff were really friendly and there was lots of information available about tourist tours etc.

Note that this hotel is NOT on the main street so I wouldn't stay here if I was staying without a hire car.

There is no restaurant on site (there is one next door however). There are BBQs for communal use in the lagoon area.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone coming through that wanted a nice, but not too costly, break.

Unique Quality: There are six 42m long lagoons around the complex which all the rooms look out on to - very nice! It's quite a quiet place, we really didn't see our neighbours much at all.

Directions: It's about a three minute drive from the centre of town (Macrossan St).
