3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed here many years ago when it was called the Quest Apartments, I loved it then and loved it now. We stayed in a 2 bedroom Deluxe apartment and were extremely impressed. I'm very fussy when it comes to cleanliness and first impressions when staying away from my own home and this place didn't disappoint. Staff were amazing, friendly, helpful and met your needs. I highly recommend staying at Port Douglas Sands Resort.

What a fantastic apartment we stayed for 5 nights, it was very well equipped with a bonus light breakfast included. Amanda was excellent we were able to book in early as we came from Perth on the midnight flight. Would really recommend this accommodation.

We had a fantastic five night stay in a three bedroom apartment. The apartment was recently renovated and had everything we needed including very comfortable beds which I really loved! It was also spotlessly clean. The pool and surrounding gardens were beautiful. The kids loved having breakfast down in the cafe. It's just cereal and toast, juice and tea and coffee but felt very special to them! We would love to stay here again one day.

The apartment was amazing! It was spacious and had everything we needed. It was a comfortable and relaxing space to come back to after a long day of activities. The staff were amazing and the continental breakfast was an added bonus and one less thing we needed to worry about. Definitely recommend to other travellers and families.

Had a fabulous time at Sands Resort. It was a quick walk along the beach into town and we loved the Resort pool. Unit 1 was spacious, lovely and quiet with double glazed windows. The kitchen was great and air conditioning very fast & effective. A beautiful, calming place to stay!

We had a fantastic stay. Excellent base for Daintree, Cairns and Mossman Gorge. We had a comfortable stay and a bonus breakfast with an entertaining breakfast host. 2km (pleasant) walk to Port Douglas town or you can catch a coach or bike ride. We had a delay with our train arrival but they were happy to accommodate our needs and adjusted our stay. It was a relief to have received good old school customer service. Highly recommended for family with kids. Definitely coming back here.

We stayed at the Sands Resort in a 2 bedroom apartment for 4 nights over NYE. The apartment was perfect for our family of four. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was just what we needed. If we holiday in Port Douglas again we'd stay at the Sands again. Thanks!

Good stay with a great room and fantastic staff, especially Chillagoe who made us feel special and was the most charming person of all Port Douglas. Apartment was clean and fresh and new, really good facilities - the four of us were very happy with our stay. Thank you

Stayed in number 27, both bedrooms have air-cons as does the main area. New kitchen and all you need to enjoy your stay. Catch the local bus to and from town, just wave it down. Love the pool and bbq. Breakfast is good, bring your own fruit & yoghurt to complement the cereal etc. Management are very friendly and helpful. As others have said walk through the Sheraton to 4 mile beach. Will be back..

Immaculate property - gardens, pool and apartment were excellent. The continental breakfast and sandpit by the pool were a bonus! Even though it was peak season the resort was nice and quiet. Easy drive to town, perfect for our young family (11 month old and 3 year old). Would highly recommend staying here.
