We stayed at Freestyle Resort for 3 nights over the Christmas holidays. Anne was an amazing host who went out of her way to help us out. Due to flight issues, we ended up arriving after the check-in window. It completely slipped our mind to let Anne know, but she left a note with check-in instructions at the front. We followed up in an email apologizing for the slip up, and ask about when to check in, since we had a 7:50am pickup for snorkeling before the checkin opens at 8am. Literally 5 minutes later Anne shows up outside our door with beach towels and a Sailaway pamphlet because she knew that 7:50am was the company's pickup time! That blew my mind for someone to know the local excursions so well! Anne also helpful in recommending places to eat, best methods of transportation, and general guidance on our daily itinerary. The hotel itself is in a very convenient location. It's about 10-15 min walk from most places we needed to go (harbor for excursions, 4 Mile Beach, and town for food/drinks). We didn't get to take advantage of the other amenities the place offered, like the grill or the beautiful pool. The room was very comfy for two. There's a kitchen/fridge which makes grabbing a quick breakfast before any early morning excursions very easy. Most importantly, there is AC and ceiling fans to quickly cool down the room!
Ann has been an awesome host for our 4 days here. Offering suggestions for where to eat, explaining the different animal noises we may hear (loved that we didn't have to worry about a kid getting strangled as it was just the Curlew!), went through map of the area & where to eat. Showed us through the apartment & explained how to use appliances etc. Room itself was great - exactly what we needed, small kitchen, lounge, separate KING bed!!! Nice little balcony with setting & overhead fan so we could sit out & listen to the wildlife. Kitchen was handy as we prepared our own breakfast each morning to save $. Pool area was lovely - a really different pool with different levels & good shade. Good temperature too. Ample sun lounges with cushions. Highly recommend Freestyle!
I visited the Freestyle Resort over my Christmas holidays and had an amazing time ! The apartment itself was very spacious and comfortable, it truly felt like home. Nearby shops was just a short walk into town and also the beach. Anne herself was extremely helpful and friendly, she made our stay very comfortable, she organised all our trips/tours and made our trip easy. Thank you for your hospitality, defiantly would recommend recommending the Freestyle Resort to everyone! Nives
Beautiful resort and freestyle ideal location. Room was excellent with a great view and where we were treated to a daily early evening show every night from the beautiful tropical birds. The managers couldn't do enough to ensure we had everything we needed especially as we were there over the busy festive period. We had support for booking trips and travel arrangements from Ann and her husband Jason the managers. They couldn't do enough and we really felt at home in such a great place.
We had a pleasant stay here in October. We had booked twin beds but were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms which was a nice surprise. Mostly agree with the other reviews for the property. Spacious apartment, nicely decorated, with great sized balcony, good location, nice pool etc. Anne was very helpful upon arrival and verbally gave us heaps of information, too much to remember all of it (maybe a cheat sheet in the room would be nice so we could remember all her recommendations). A minor criticism is the bedrooms were not very sound proof, it felt as though we were in the same room even though one bedroom was downstairs and the other above it, and the upstairs bathroom was a bit open (no door, but to the left of the stairs so still private enough) and also had a separate toilet (with door). We loved having breakfast out on the balcony and liked that we faced the back of the property rather than the pool as it felt more private. Also liked the bathroom soaps.
Wonderful boutique resort, close to shops, restaurants and the beach Hosts Anne & Jason were very friendly and there knowledge of the area was amazing, great tips on local restaurants, tours, sightseeing etc, nothing was a bother We stayed for 5 days but wish we had booked for another 5 Sad to leave but will definitely return- our apartment no 14 faced the parkland and the bird life and peacefulness was just what we needed A great place to stay for a couple or a family
This is the best hotel we’ve stayed in during our travel trip. Spacious, clean,well equipped one bedroom apt with a lovely balcony from which to watch the wildlife. Anne could not have been a more helpful and accommodating hostess. The hotel is close to shops, restaurants, the beach and the marina. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
As soon as you arrive Anne greets you at reception and the great service begins. We were told about the facilities in the hotel the location and times to get to the beach and the main street, then off to the apartment. We had a one bedroom room on the 1st floor looking out onto the pool, the room is spacious and very clean, there is a safe in the bedroom, there was fruit, tea, coffee and milk as the starter pack and if we need anything just to ask. The towels we were told could be used both at the hotel and for the beach or when on the Great Barrier Reef trip. There are laundry facilities on the ground floor with the washer and dryers costing ($4 AUD) per load. Ann provided free washing liquid for the machine. Location is great close to the beach and also only a 5 minute walk to the main street. Overall this is a first class resort and Anne and her husband provide brilliant hosting, you can tell it is their pride and joy and they love people to have a brilliant stay. Well worth staying here if you are in Port Douglas
We stayed at the Freestyle for a week and were impressed as soon as we walked into the lobby to be greeted by Anne. Such a charming and friendly person and nothing was too much trouble for her. We asked about trips and Anne recommended the ones that would best suit us. The accommodation was clean, tidy and very comfortable and comes with a welcome pack including fresh fruits and ample tea and coffee to get started. I have no hesitation in recommending the Freestyle to friends and relatives and would certainly stay there again.
Arriving late in the evening and access to rooms made easy and simple; with a very welcome, welcome pack awaiting. Rooms were well appointed and comfy, and crisp linen sheets and 'snuggly' white towels. All aspects of our stay were excellent including the lovely swimming pool area. Ann was very hospitable and nothing was too much trouble, we requested additional beach towels for our Reef trip and also additional hangers for the wardrobe. Good location and 5mins walk from bars and restaurants/10mins from wharf. Lots of welcomed advice and guidance which greatly helped the success of our visit; it is our Port Douglas address from now on!
