Lovely staff, lovely location that's well and truly in the rainforest like the whole of Cape Tribulation. The room (stand-alone cabin) was very "tired" looking with a noisy fan/air-condition, no net/screen for the insects, no TV and no phone signal (leaving us very little to do on such a rainy week). ...
Trish and Kev are warm and hospitable. They helped us plan every day to optimize our time and money. Breakfast was a delightful array of exotic Fruits and jams and butters. The community breakfast table is a great way to meet other guests and hear their experiences. Loved our stay. Would do it again.
This place is ok. It's not an amazing place but it's clean and has the ammenities you need. The pool and grill area is what bumps this up to a 4. It's awesome. The owner is a little strange. He yelled at us for parking in the wrong place even though we had a spot reserved in the garage and there wasn't a specific spot assigned. Nothing came of that though. The only other thing to be aware of, though, is that they do not provide soap, shampoo, etc. You will have to bring your own, which we were not prepared for. Overall, the place is nice, comfortable. I would stay again if I was just looking for something without any glam.
If you have a car or can bike, you’d reach town in a jiffy. The Ramada next door has restaurants or you can make your own meals at the communal bbq area. Our room was restful and very clean. Reception-concierge service was excellent and welcoming.
We had a nice stay in Cairns, which was involuntarily extended by 4 days when our flight to Guam was canceled due to Tropical Storm Vongfong bearing down on Guam. We stayed in an "okay" hotel in Cairns for the first three nights before we decided to visit the Daintree area. I made the reservation for the this hotel in Port Douglas and we were on our way. I regret not deciding to go to Port Douglas earlier, first because it is a great vacation area, and second because this hotel is heads-and-shoulders above where we were staying. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and (except for some rowdy kids yelling in the hallway once) quiet. We did not have time to take advantage of the beautiful pool or other amenities, but they had everything one expects form a first-class hotel. Reviewers are asked to leave out pricing, but I will say what we paid was a GREAT value. This hotel may not deserve 5 stars, but it definitely beyond 4 stars IMHO. I don't know if I'll be back to Port Douglas, but if I do go, I'll start my hotel search with this hotel.
