Port Douglas Sands Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Here for a week with my family. Same as last visit booked unit 27. Aircon in the 2 bedrooms and main living area. Modern kitchen. Even has a long lounge that my 6'4 frane can stretch out on. Our daughter loves the pool (difficult to get her out of it). Like our previous stay Amanda is lovely. So easy going and helpful. We'll be back again.

My wife and I stayed at the Port Douglas Sands Resort for a week from 3/11 to 10/11/2017. The staff were really friendly and helpful. An excellent range of tours displayed in the resort. Continental Breakfast served every morning and was a great start to the day. The apartment was very nice and well laid out with full amenities. The pool is quite large and the water warm. Port Douglas township is about 5 minutes away by car. If you have a vehicle the resort offers free parking under the complex. I will not hesitate to stay again and would highly recommend.

I have a love/hate relationship with Port Douglas, but I did love this place. Yes it is not some fancy resort, but neither does it pretend to be. It is one of the most honest and nice places I have ever stayed, and for the price it is brilliant. The facilities are basic, but the people are lovely and if you are travelling with family one of their 3 bedroom apartments are perfect. Generously sized, a bathroom/laundry and an ensuite. Full kitchen and lounge area. Secure parking underneath and unlike other resorts in Port Douglas there is actually enough parking for all guests. It is definitely tailored to families that want to explore but at the same time would like cooking in the apartment. BBQ facilities next to the pool are also a nice touch. Not one for the romantics, but for families you can’t go wrong.

Our rooms were modern with comfortable beds, and good kitchen and laundry facilities. The deck was very pleasant in the evenings for dinner. We enjoyed our breakfast with our host, and if something was available on request for g/f it would be perfect. The pool and barbeque area were gorgeous! If the owners of the apartment 32 did a bit of touch up with some enamel paint on the whiteware in the bathroom, it would look much smarter. Any easy fix.

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.
