          A relaxing week in PD”

          We were very happy with our stay at Port Douglas Retreat. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a nice porch seating area. We were on the ground floor which made accessing the room with a pram very easy. We were able to rent a cot during our stay. The bathroom was roomy with a big shower area, no bath but our baby prefers showers anyway. Excellent location, close to the beach, main town and river. Staff were helpful and friendly. The pool and BBQ area were great and provided an opportunity to socialise with other guests and cook and eat cheaply. I would definitely return to Port Douglas Retreat when in Port Douglas next.

          location and friendliness

          we were greeted by david and joyce, who both made us very welcome and chatted about many things even before we checked in. the room overlooked the pool and bbq area where guests enjoyed preparing meals. set conveniently between the beach on one side and the marina on the other, the hotel is also only a couple of minutes from the main restaurant and bar area. the quiet location and tropical garden were lovely, and we only wished we had more time to relax. however, port douglas has many things to do, and so we were out all the time.

          Port Douglas is a lovely spot and the Retreat was a nice place. Friendly staff and a nice room. A pity that there aren't enough parking spaces and we had to park out on the road. Also we were surprised that the internet allocation had already run out after basically just checking our emails! Good location.

          aircondition

          Retreat was very peaceful place to stay. We hired bikes and we can kept them in the carace in the nights. The gym called Fitness Paradise was near (about 100 m from the hotel). We trained there every mornings and after the exersice we jumped to the great pool in Retreat. We had own kitchen in the room. So we can easily cooked. Local supermarket Coles have had a great place to shopping daily things. First we planned to take a trip to the ocean for diving or snorkling. Problem was that the prises were very high. We wondered how nobody can ever go to the ocean? You must have a lot of money to do it. Four Mile beach was near by hotel, only 5 minutes to walk. Beach was really nice place to relax and you don t need money to enjoy it.

          Disappointing rooms and service level”

          Location

          We stayed at the Port Douglas Retreat for 3 nights. Upon arrival we went to our room and were quite shocked. The room was very basic with old furniture, kitchen and especially kitchen utensils / glasses / coffee mugs were dirty. We did not even want to use the water kettle as it was very dirty and seemingly from 1982. We also did not realise that there is no housekeeping during the stay, which was maybe our mistake as we did not read properly . The A/C was old and extremely loud at night but unfortunately it was too warm to sleep without it. Bathroom was also very old and not the cleanest. The pool looks quite nice but we realized that at 8 pm (during pool hours) there was no staff and no pool towels available. Overall very disappointing and I would not recommend this hotel!!

Units set amongst nice landscape and each has a feel of privacy. Room size adequate with small kitchenette but being so close to restaurants and hotel bbq facilities who wants to cook inside.

          Having arrived after midnight when reception was closed, our room key and welcome letter had been kindly left for us by staff. Our room was large, clean with a good fan and A/C. The pool area was like a little tropical oasis (although the edge of the pool is very rough and took the skin off my knee) - we were disappointed that we couldn’t spend much time out there due to the weather. It’s a very short walk into town and to the wharf (ideal if your going to the Great Barrier Reef). We would definitely stay here again.
