We stayed here, family of 4 for a week. Nice collection of villas only a short drive from the main part of Port Douglas. Pool was interesting in a good way with a small waterfall and cave area which has a spa blower. Villas and grounds neat and tidy. Staff helpful and attentive. The restaurant itself is a little uninspired...

Really enjoyed our time here. Good pools. Tidy resort, helpful and friendly staff. Lucky we had a car. A little too far from Main Street. Would probably stay here again if we go back to PD. Stayed in villa 62

We recently stayed at this Resort. Excellent value for money. The tastefully and recently revue bushes apartments were excellent, good kitchen facilities, spacious bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. Lounge area, good television viewing, all in all highly recommended. Continental Breakfast also included. Not brilliantly presented but ok. Wouldn't go to this resort during the peak school holiday period, as it would...

When we found out that one of our extended family were going to get married near Port Douglas, the first thought was I wonder if there is a Rendezvous there? Having enjoyed both Melbourne and Auckland Rendezvous, if there was, there was no other option! After a long trip from NZ, arriving at the resort we were directed to Villa...

We stayed with extended family in a two bedroom two bathroom villa not far from reception and restaurant. Both bedrooms and mezzanine lounge with 2nd TV were upstairs. They had small decks off both rooms. The lower level comprised of the kitchen, lounge, 2nd bathroom and laundry. Great having washing machine and dryer as no extra towels were provided and...

This resort is great as it has separate apartment type accommodation with the advantage of a central hotel restaurant and 3 separate pools and a gym. The central pool is an adventure playground for kids with hiding spots, a cave and an island. This lagoon pool is surrounded by lounges for watchful parents and if it gets too hard you...

We have just spent a very pleasant 7 nights in a 3 bedroom townhouse at this resort (Villa 113). The holiday was purchased through a charity auction and unfortunately the reviews on Trip Advisor were not complimentary, so we were skeptical. However, the townhouse was very clean, well appointed and even included a mid-week clean and re-stock of towels etc....

We stayed for a family wedding in 2 bedroom apartment styled room and paid extra for the renovated apartment. We were underwhelmed with the kitchen utensils and lack thereof. The showers were atrocious with no pressure and really shabby, broken shower heads. We love a great shower and this was really bad. Strangely there were no toiletries provided like most...

Staying for 1 week. Accomm is ok. Clean enough. A little run down. Decent mid range accomm. Would be good for a family or if staying for a long time as you have all the laundry/kitchen/ facilities a family would need. Not too far from IGA or the main strip.
