Port Douglas by the Beach
We loved our stay! It is definitely a family friendly place, but we loved being almost right on the beach and were very comfy. The ladies who run the place can help with tours and tips. It is a fun place to stay!

Stay AWAY!!!!
Worst hotel experience I’ve ever dealt with. I booked a room that had a queen size bed for me and my wife to stay in, and had a couch that converted into a double or full size for my 5 and 1 year old to sleep on. When I arrived they refused me to check in stating that the room wasn’t big enough for us and that I needed to look elsewhere. I’ve never in my life been told my room wouldn’t be able to sleep that. The couch folds out for a reason. Not only that, they wouldn’t issue a refund and I had no choice being in Australia to book a different hotel for 6 nights and fork out that money.

Worth the trip
Seriously enjoyed the area. Mossman gorge worth going to. Great rain forest as was Dantree. Took a snokel cattamaran to the outer reef. Nice, but over priced. The crew said the water was frequently choppy. For me that makes it difficult to enjoy the snorkling. Should you arrive after dark, be aware you will not see their tiny sandwich board sign.
