We loved our stay here in the jungle and wished we could have stayed longer. This place is super affordable and if you don't mind communal bathrooms/kitchen I would highly recommend it. It's family friendly too and not really a party vibe which was perfect for what we were after. All the staff were super friendly and helpful and are...

There is no doubt that staying in the midst of the rainforest is a departure from staying in a conventional resort style accommodation. The hosts are friendly and welcoming. If you are looking for high end luxury this isn't the place for you. It has a range of accommodation choices at different prices and there is the option to self...

This is the closest You can get to that experience without sleeping on Your on in the rainforest. For people looking for something Nic extra ordinary this is the place to visit. If You are FB addicted the just skip the place. Also people who are not camping minded should think twice. Bug are included on the price.

Love: the location, the novelty of staying within a rain forest environment, the staff, the delicious value-for-money meals, comfy beds, mosquito nets, the lo-fi, unconnected experience. However, don't take literally the 'resort' title in the entrance sign. This is definitely 'glamping' or backpacker style accomm and although we enjoyed our visit (our second), Crocodylus is showing its age. Our cabin...

I recently stayed in Cow Bay for 7 days, but I was not staying at Crocodylus. The hosts at my accommodation recommended that I check out Crocodylus for dinner the first night I arrived. I took their advice, and I'm glad I did. They seem to cook up a menu consisting of a few different dishes each night, catering for...

Great location, has a restaurant and bar, and the accommodation is excellent, real rain forest experience. The prices are cheap too which is the icing on the cake. Friendly welcoming staff and their "OMG omelette" is to die for. I live on the tablelands and whenever we have guest, we always take them here! 5 stars guys!

Accommodation basic Eco style, comfortable beds and good mozzie nets. Could do with some general tidy maintenance the overall "resort" is looking very tired and needs a good scrub. The pool is disgusting with stains, dirty water and no pool furniture at all! No one swan in it; it looked like it might hold the resorts namesake a crocodile instead...

daintreecrocodylus, Owner at Daintree Crocodylus, responded to this review

Just a couple of notes in response to the review: Overall our policy is to keep Daintree Crocodylus as close to natural jungle as possible. This means we do not manicure our rainforest, resort or paths but rather keep the jungle at bay just enough to let our guests move around comfortably. POOL The pool is getting a refurb over...

This was a unique experience. Waking up in the middle of the rainforest was amazing. Highly recommend doing the night walk with Steve. It was great fun for the kids. The rooms are basic with shade cloth walls and mosquito nets but that is part of the experience. Great food is available as well from the restaurant on site.

We had such a lovely stay at Crocodylus - stayed for 2 nights but could have easily stayed longer. Sleeping under canvas with the sounds of the rainforest was amazing. We were 'lucky' enough to have heavy rain for 24 hours, so we felt the full rainforest experience. Common area was very well set up with darts, lots of books,...
