Competitively priced, centrally located, clean, quiet, happy staff. Will be returning there in the not-too-distant future. Read the other 5-star remarks about Breakfree Royal Harbour. I think they have it just right.

This hotel was across the road from the lagoon and just a little distance to the wharf for going on trips to the reef. The night markets were adjacent to the hotel and the eateries and food hall were nearby.

Very clean and tidy rooms. The views from the balcony out to the inlet were unbelievable. Can't get any closer to the action. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely coming back our next visit to Cairns.

Good location, nice views from balcony. Apartment has everything you need, some of the funishings where a bit worn but this did not affect our stay. The only thing that I didn't like was not having free wifi.

We had a lovely ocean view room and sitting out on the balcony in the morning and evenings was so lovely watching the boats come in and out of the harbour. The room itself was lovely and clean. The staff extremely helpful and friendly. Our flight didn't arrive until very late in the evening and the staff had prearranged tours...

Port Douglas is a cert to visit. Laid back and beautiful!! See the fruit bats flying in the evening! Great evening food and entertainment.Close to Daintree which is a must. Great Barrier Reef trip is good but bleaching is something we ALL need to care about.

The rooms are very big and confortables, in fact you have a big apartment with terrace, bbq facilities and swimming pool. Great value for money! Particularly adapt for couples and families as it is quiet
