Our apartment was welcoming, as was the reception of Dave and Joyce. The location was excellent, being right in the middle of a short walk to the Marina, the beach and the main shopping street. The apartment itself is a little dated, but very clean and was a reasonable price for it's location. It had all the amenities that you...

Reasonably priced for an excellent location. Little kitchenette if you wanted to cook and a decent bbq outside. Bathroom was large, shower was small however. Staff were friendly and helpful. Great pool to relax in and not overly busy. Would prefer towels to be changed bit more regularly. Great place, highly recommended.

We stayed at the Port Douglas Retreat for 6 nights. The location is excellent, 5 minutes from the Marina, 5 minutes from the beach and 2 minutes from the main street (walking). Our room was large enough and had a small kitchen area. The managers are very helpful and provided lots of advice on what to do and see and...

I recently stayed here for 3 nights on my first visit to Queensland. The accommodation is in a great location and the owners are very helpful and knowledgeable. They gave great advice on trips for my stay, even though it was a busy period and had to book last minute. The room had everything you would need and was clean...

I stayed for nine nights recently and I was very happy with the experience. The location is great, easy walking distance from Macrossan Street, the Marina and Four Mile Beach. The room is a reasonable size, I was on my own but it wouldn't have been a problem for a couple. The bathroom is large and the shower is large...

My partner and I had a four night stay at Port Douglas Retreat in July. The room had everything we needed and it was an easy stroll to the Marina, to town or to the beach. However our room at the front was very noisy and we were woken up at 6.30am on three of the four mornings by traffic...

We have just returned to Sydney after a week's stay at the Port Douglas Retreat. We were delighted with this choice - lovely welcoming reception area, attractive tropical environment and the rooms were great. Comfortable bed, plenty of space, good bathroom, lovely balcony and perfectly adequate kitchinette. I can't understand people complaining about not having clean towels or room service...

The location being close to Macrossan street is what made us pick this place. The room was clean and had a nice balcony. The kitchenette is well equipped and the washing machine room worked perfectly. The manager does give advice about the activities that are available in Port Douglas such as diving and snorkeling trips and the reception wall is...

We had a very nice experience at Port Douglas Retreat! Traveling from the US, I was nervous about confirming accommodations and transportation and in my overzealousness sent not one, not two, but THREE emails to confirm. David, the manager, kindly responded each time to assure me and even joked about it when we checked in! The location was great, about...
