We've stayed here twice now, loved it both times. The location is perfect so close to town and the beach which is ideal when you don't want to be getting young kids in and out of the car al the time. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped. The pool is just perfect for small kids, mainly shaded, toys...

We would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a place to stay in Port Douglas. Peter and Amanda are extremely nice to deal with and we can't say enough about how accommodating they are.

I booked two nights at the Outrigger solely based on the great TripAdvisor reviews this place had received and boy was I let down.

Amanda C, Manager at The Port Douglas Outrigger, responded to this review

You called with a special request to allow 6 guests (you, your partner and 4 children) in a two bedroom apartment. Our limit is 5 guests in a 2 bedroom apartment. Hesitantly, we agreed to your request, considering that your 4 children were under 7 and it was for only two nights. Amanda advised you at the time that it...

We are two friends travelling together and we were thrilled to be staying for 5 nights. Peter & Amanda are the best hosts you will ever meet. Our apartment was spacious, clean and well fitted out. The lagoon pool was fabulous and we loved going for a dip among the tropical surrounds. We travelled end of March.

We're 2 couples visiting Australia from the UK and booked 10 nights in Port douglas at the Outrigger apartments. The apartments have everything you need and are very comfortable. The private pool provides an area to soak up the sun or to cool down after a busy day of excursions. Peter and Amanda are the most helpful and friendly hosts...
