Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I saw someone else review that…it’s a lottery. Probably sums it up well. What we hadn’t realised was that all apartments are individually owned and all differ in standard, quality of furnishing etc. Some do look nice. We stayed in apartment 19 and it really was an awful apartment. A small and not very light apartment - the ceiling fans not working, the Aircon not working for 3 days (unless we tripped the fuse and then it worked for 30 mins before stopping again), only 1 power socket working in the kitchen, the blinds covering the patio door that was held Up with a hair clip, cheap kitchen utensils and cutlery, chipped walls and door frames, handles falling off the wardrobe doors. We paid more for this place than the other 3 places we stayed in Queensland on our holiday and it was by far the worst. Location is great though. Walking distance in to the village and to the beach. The pool is pretty nice - but could be cleaner. All in all I wouldn’t stay here again and I couldn’t recommend.

The pool area was great, the gardens were beautiful. The managers were quite helpful. Even though mostly clean the rooms were a little run down eg Couch had stains on them, microwave rusty, utensils looking worn, chips on bench, coffee table chipped and stained. The thing that disappointed us the most was supplies in the room. We were told that it there was a starter pack and that was normal in self- catering places. We disagree as we’ve stayed in many self - catering places and have had adequate supplies for our stay or provided free of charge. We ran out of supplies, toilet paper, soap, bin liner, one t- towel in a few days of our 10 day stay. We were told we had to buy them from the manager if we wanted more. Providing those little things free of charge would have made a big difference to our stay. It doesn’t cost a lot but it was the principle. As customer service it doesn’t take much to provide those small things especially if a person was spending a considerable time at their resort. Even though the resort was out of town, No dishwasher, and a bit run down, it was the fact of having to go and buy our own toilet paper, soap and having to ask for an extra bin liner etc was enough to not want to come back. When we had a towel and sheet room service after 5 days it would have cost so little to provide an updated t.towel, bin liner, toilet paper and soap. It’s that extra customer service that wants you to return. It would have been helpful to have Instructions left on how to use the microwave and the hot plate properly as there was a particular way to turn them on. We had to go and ask. Also $6.00 for the cost of the washing machines was a little high. It would have been nice to have screens on the door or be able to open the windows to have some fresh air without the worry of having flies etc in the room.

Filthy, need to look at a new cleaner !! And please do not say "it's the tropics, you have to expect that". What i expect of a 4 star resort is NOT - cobwebs and dust on the lounge room lamp, dust, dirt and cobwebs on the screens, exhaust fan over stove dirty and rusted, cutlery dirty, dishes and plates dirty and saucepan with food still stuck on the inside of it. Bathtub and bathroom need serious work and no hair-dryer!! The TV would only work on the one kids station, and no DVD that was usable, also remote control in cupboard with DVD player covered in a layer of dust. Our outlook was onto a garden that was overgrown and full of debris. Both my daughter and my grandson as well as me left there with sore throats and unwell. There is a lot more I could say but I think I have said enough to alert other holiday makers to be wary of the 4 stars because it definitely is not !!

Thank you for your review. If you had told us there was no hairdryer we would have given you a spare one. People take them and we are constantly replacing them. An easy fix. The same with the TV. If there is a problem we will check and replace with a spare. If you do not report issues they cannot be fixed.

Stayed in room 46 with family and kids (10 and 8). This room was absolutely beautifully appointed with all the little things extra touches, including diffusers and a candle in the lounge room. Enjoyed sitting out on the balcony overlooking the trees and relaxing with a drink. It had a nice vibe about it. The beach only a 2 min walk and shops/dining about 10-12 min walk, although we had a car. The pool was great and there was even a fabulous bbq area where you could enjoy a nice cooked meal. Comfy beds and pillows and the kitchen had all the matching cutlery and crockery you needed. Everything cleaned to perfection. The only thing that would have made it even better would have been to have a small cafe for coffee and morning/afternoon tea items and prepackaged Sandwiches for sale. We will be traveling to port Douglas again soon and will certainly request number 46!

We LOVED Apartment 46 ! Appointed so perfectly for the space with a lovely balcony and a leafy outlook ! Bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean and the kitchen was functional with everything one would need. The grounds and pool were lovely, and the staff were gorgeous ! An easy walk to town and beach as others have mentioned. We are due back in Port Douglas in a few months and will definitely be reserving #46 !

A budget friendly motel only a 20 minute stroll from town. Would suit travellers on a short stay who aren’t too fussy about bedding, furnishings or sparkling surfaces. Short, uncomplicated stroll to the beach. Many leaflets available at Reception for sightseeing and things to do.

The apartment overall has seen better days. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. The main fit only a double and the second fit two singles - fine for our young kids but teenage siblings might find it a bit too cosy. The kitchen and bathroom are in need of renovation. They still work fine, but are past their prime. The DVD player was ancient. We had a balcony where you could eat which was great at night, but not so good for breakfast when the morning sun made it uncomfortable. The pool is terrific however. Good size and plenty of places to sit. My kids had a blast. Staff was friendly and always willing to help. I’d rate it an ok place to stay. The shortcomings are at least reflected in the price.

Thank you for your lovely review. Yes we are an older place as many are in the area but have had a face lift with our outside freshly painted and gardens getting redone at the moment. Yes a fabulous pool and heated in the winter which is always a bonus. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again.

Exactly as pictured, we had a two bedroom light-filed apartment, all very neat and tidy. Pool area lovely, and great value for the area. Highly recommend. Service was excellent and location great - 15/20 min walk to restaurants and market.

I was a bit nervous as to how our apartment would be after reading reviews but I needn't have been. It was a lovely relaxed place to stay and only 3 minutes walk to the beach. Sure it wasn't 5 star but neither was the price and the manager was very friendly and accommodating allowing us a late late check out with no issue. So disappointing how mean people can be in their reviews

We loved our recent visit at Reef Club Resort. It was immaculately clean, Lea (at front desk) was so friendly and knowledgeable and the proximity to town and the beach was excellent. The pool was great. We have two young girls and were able to hire portacots at a small fee - so helpful when travelling with children. We will definitely be back.
