A wonderful stay in Port Douglas

Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: Aside from close to the beach it is as close to the stores and restaurants as we wanted to be. (Within a block)
My husband and I stayed in Port Douglas for 9 days at this hotel. It is a great place to stay because of great management,(managed by 6 women), location - a very short walk to 4 mile beach as well as a nice view of palm trees and water from our deck, updated and clean, the best service one could ask for, and lots of amenities that one would not expect. There is a room to do laundry, nice bicycles to ride, floaties for the pool that is shaded part of the day, movies to borrow, chairs for the beach, coolers, wagons if you need to haul your stuff to the beach or carts for the grocery store. Can't say enough good things about this place and "the girls". They recommended and set up our tours to the reef and rainforest and transfers to the airport and we loved the companies they chose. Would love to go back. (You can tell that it is run by caring women!)
