Awesome place, awesome staff!
The website pictures don't do it justice - it was much cuter and more updated than I expected. The staff was awesome - even let my sister call the US when she lost her credit card. They have everything you could need available in the lobby to borrow. I just wish we were staying in Port Douglas longer!

Very welcoming and lovely people. Well managed apartments 5 stars
David, au3 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Clean, comfortable, good location.
Stayed in the 1-br suite. Nice enough, clean, roomy, but nothing fancy. Windows looked right into windows of the next-door hotel, 30’ away. Curtains were useful. The hotel has lots of free useful stuff available like beach towels, beach chairs, bicycles, wagons, etc that can make your PD trip even better. Hotel location is 100’ from 4-Mile beach which is nice, and at the end of the Main Street through town so within walking distance of most restaurants, bars, etc.
