We stayed in a queen studio room for 4 nights. It was well equipped with everything you could possibly need and spacious enough for the two of us (although best to have only one person in the kitchen cooking 😉as it is a small space). The studio has its own outdoor area with BBQ, en-suite bathroom and large TV with DVD player. DVDs are available at reception but Netflix is also available and there is free wifi. The staff have thought of everything and you can borrow free of charge a range of pool toys, books, games, bikes, dvds, shopping trolleys, eskys & beach towels. Nothing is too much trouble and the girls obviously love what they do. The facility is located at the end of the main street right next to four mile beach which is a patrolled beach. There are also walking trails nearby. I would highly recommend and would stay here again in heartbeat. Great value, very clean and fabulous location. It looks exactly as it does in their promotional pictures. Enjoy!

This hotel is amazing...the staff is incredible. Very helpful and cheerful. There are so many amenities available. It is a 2 minute walk to the beach. Room had everything we needed. Wish we had booked longer as it was a perfect "chill out" location. Prior to arriving the staff emailed and answered all questions we had. Thank you so much!

Stayed here for two nights in ‘the cosy’ queen room and it was perfect! We needed for nothing and the room was spotless. An absolute perfect location The help and advice from Myra and staff prior to our stay was also excellent. Nothing was a problem for them. If I came back to Port Douglas I would definitely stay here and in the ‘cosy queen room’ it was wonderful A big Thankyou to the girls.

By The Sea is an exceptional accommodation option for everyone. Their amenities mean families can travel & cook some meals, you can just eat out, or get takeaway & eat in your apartment with all the space to dine easily. Their service for booking transfers & activities is really helpful as are their recommendations. There is a ton of value added extras, like towels, bikes, pool noodles & inflatables, chairs, eski's, the list goes on. All of which you'd have to pay for at a more expensive resort. We loved it and are already planning to come again.
