Family Friendly

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 30, 2006

** Stayed - October 2004 **

We chose this hotel because it offered the luxury of three bedrooms in a two level apartment - which we needed for our family (two adults, three children). The resort was fantastic, with the choice of three swimming pools (one with a swim-up bar), a couple of handy restaurants, and a general store located on the premesis.
The only downside was the distance into the main centre of Port Douglas (approx 2 km), but we were able to use the regular local bus service which picked up and dropped off inside our resort.
Also offered a 'Kids Club' where our children were able to play with other children as well as take part in activities which were based around the water, and the 'ocean' feel of Port Douglas.
A great place to relax with your family. Highly recommnded.

Amazing Wedding Reception Venue

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 30, 2005

We stayed in a standard room in March 2004 while researching where to have our wedding reception in Port Douglas. The standard room was modest, nice and slightly overpriced. Their 2 and 3 bedroom units seemed better value for money. The price shown below is for the standard room of course.

On our wedding night (in August 2004) we stayed in the honeymoon suite, which was everything you would expect including a living room, dining room, kitchen, huge master bedroom and bathroom. It has a private wooden patio in the back with a huge spa bath (you could fit 4 people comfortably). I do not know what it would cost to get this room on its own since it was included in our package price for the wedding reception on their property.

I am rating the hotel 5 stars based on our experience with the wedding reception. I would give the standard rooms 3 stars and the honeymoon suite 5 stars.

Unique Quality: The property is gorgeously landscaped with flowers and greenery everywhere. They have FIVE swimming pools with very creative designs, including one with a swim-up bar and little private alcoves around the pool.

We were extremely thrilled with how our wedding reception turned out. It was held in the evening (after dark) in one of their pool patio areas with a formal candlelit 3 course sit-down dinner. It was far more beautiful than we imagined it would be. The staff were excellent and the food was delicious! They let us bring in our own wedding cake (made and delivered by a bakery in town). We had a DJ and a dance floor inside the small restaurant next to the area where we ate dinner.

I highly recommend considering having your wedding reception here. Let me know if you have any questions about it.

Chill out time

Excellent place to stay. Rooms on the basic side but overall lovely resort. Choice of swimming pools with the main one having a hot-tub and swim up bar where you can get refreshments. Great at organising snorkelling/diving and other trips. Restaurants offering a good choice of menus. Service friendly. The hotel operates a regular shuttle bus to take you into town - only drawback is that this is not free.
