Would happily stay again”
Pros - great location for walking to 4 mile beach (2 mins), restaurants/shops (10 mins) or Marina to catch a boat to the GBR (15 mins). The staff are MEGA helpful and keen to please. The free facilities are beyond anything I've experienced whether sets of golf clubs, beach chairs, buggies, ice cookers umbrellas, DVDs and much more. Great size room with full kitchen and your own BBQ on the patio. Just outstanding. Only 1 negative and that is lack of a lift and if, like us, you are on the 2nd floor- its a long way to carry heavy cases. Having said that, the plusses are so good, we'd stay again and bring less luggage!!
Very comfortable 2 night stay- great location, great staff, great amenities!”
This was our first time to Port Douglas and am super glad we stayed here. Very nice room, comfortable bed, clean bathroom and amenities. Staff were super polite providing great information and help. Felt like part of a family there! So many great little amenities they provide for you to use while you are there also! Just down the street is the main collection of shops & restaurants and a short walk to the start of 4 mile beach!
Excellent place to stay in Port Douglas”
very good location! super friendly staff!
We stayed for a week and had a month month old stay with us. Staff were very accommodating and overall was a good experience. Rooms are tidy, free wifi (NBN) and many things downstairs like dvd's board games to borrow at no extra charge. Will definitely be coming back.
Excellent stopover at By The Sea”
My only regret is we stayed just one night at By The Sea. Great recently refurbished accommodation, it's on Macrossan Street so great location but equally it was very quiet, really well equipped, excellent service, and just fantastic value. An absolutely top choice if you're going to Port Douglas.
Beautiful place, perfect location and wonderful staff! Would highly recommend.”
The staff were truely incredible & very welcoming. The location was perfect, everything was within walking distance. The accommodation itself was beautiful, very clean and had everything you need and more!!
Excellent hotel, can highly recommend”
5 star such great facilities, right on 4 mile beach. Fantastic very helpful staff, can highly recommend. Great room and pool. ( a personal thank u to all the staff, I’m the lady with the fractured knee- operation next week, 6 week recovery- thank u again to everyone!)
Good location & very friendly staff”
Very good location, walking distance to beach and main road. The girls are very nice and accomodating. Can’t thank them enough for all their helps. Nice facilities as well, they pretty much have everything you need from beach towel to esky and bike. All available for free to use by hotel guests.
Could not fault this venue. The extras like free ice,eskys, beach carts, dvds and the list goes on are a lovely touch. If I could ask for one thing it would be stubby holders. Get them printed and build them into the room cost and allow guests to take them home. Great marketing and advertising and gives the customer something to keep their beers cold. Overall highly recommend this complex and we’ll be back one day.
great spot ”
Wonderful location with great sea views. Ladies in front were lovely and the dvds available along with the towels, chairs etc were awesome. Unfortunately the bed was uncomfortable and had thin mattress which rolled into the middle.
Great location and so much free stuff!”
Location is great in the town centre and close to the beach. The girls are fantastic, thanks for the bottle of champagne for my birthday! Great rooms, heaps of free stuff for you to take to the beach, or go out with and come back. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thanks for an awesome stay!
Unique, charming, wonderful!”
Pastel color building, steps to four mile beach. Wonderful ladies at the desk, astonishing assortment of free-to-use stuff in the lobby. Easy free parking at basement level or on the street. We had the third floor walkup but the ladies whisked our bags upstairs on arrival and downstairs on departure. Port Douglas is way nicer than Cairns, and By The Sea is the place to be!
Perfect port Douglas”
Great location and great staff......perfect for a beach holiday
Hands down the best place in Port”
I live locally and travel to Port Douglas a lot. I have stayed at many place in Port from very expensive 5 star to Airbnb home stays. By The Sea is by far the best value for money. A great deal of thought has gone into the design of the rooms and facilities. But what gives this place the edge over all others is the staff. Typically Cairns and Port Douglas have embarrassingly bad customer service (god knows what foreigners think of us!). Not here. The customer service at By The Sea is impeccable. Every other place in Port should send their staff here to learn what is meant by "Hospitality".
Superfriendly staff who make you feel really welcome and help you out with everything. Absolutely nothing is too much for them. Clean comfortable room and bathroom, really ok for what you pay. Superfast WiFi for free.
One Bedroom Superior Apartment”
Great Location and service but the bathroom can be improved. We stay at the level 1 bedroom overlooking the pool. Ventilation fan makes noise when open. Also shower taps require mixing hot and cold water. We were struggling to get the right temperature.
Exceptional place and location ”
Staff couldn’t do enough to help
Pleasant and friendly ”
Certainly good value for groups or families.
The staff were wonderful. Went way over the top to be helpful. The apartment was well equipped and the resort had numerous amenities including beach chairs, beach towels and umbrellas. The staff were particularly helpful in getting our lost luggage tracked down and delivered. Lovely ladies.
By the Sea was just a wonderful accommodation for my wife and I. The "girls" were just so friendly and offer every amenity you could imagine...from bikes to shopping trolleys to beach chairs or lounges. It's location is ideal to walk to town for restaurants or just across the street to the beach. Without a doubt we will stay here on our next visit to Pt. Douglas!!
