First impressions were not very hospitable. The person that greeted us was very impatient and abrupt, not sure if it was because we arrived late (4pm) and she wanted to get off duty but luckily we were in a good mood so it didn't really bother us. However, I wouldn't be very happy if that was my business and I...

Originally I was planning on staying 3 nights, within walking into the garden loft (supposed to be the best accommodation they have) I quickly cut my stay short to 1 night & that was more than enough. The exterior of the buildings are all rotten & not maintained at all. Upon arrival there was bugs & ants all over the...

What a beautiful resort in the daintree rainforest. We stayed for 1 night in a cabin. Cabin was clean and well thought out. The pools are stunning and it is so cool with the rainforest surrounding the resort. It is a common kitchen also near the reception.

We stayed 1 night in January and it was amazing ! The lodges are in the middle of the jungle, there is a swimming pool, common room etc. The dorm was clean and comfortable. The restaurant was good and the staff really friendly. We absolutely loved our stay and definitely recommend this resort.

Right in the middle of the Daintree Rainforest, so very tranquil and quiet. Travelled as a group of 3 mid-late 20's girls, and was the perfect getaway for a few days. Pools were wonderful, and due to the time of year we visited, there was never anyone else in them! Room was adequate for the price we paid, and was...

This lodge is fantastic. we absolutely loved the whole experience. The cabins are well spaced and because it is in the middle of the rainforest it is tranquil. We only stayed for 1 night, but wished we had a couple of more days there. The pool is pleasant, although a little too close to the "common room''. the fit out...

Absolutely beautiful location. Lovely infrastructures, reception, café and boardwalk. Colony of rare Spectacled Flying Foxes living on the grounds. Rooms, cleanliness-wise, could use some TLC. On the one hand, you are in the middle of the jungle - literally. On the other, cleanliness could also be improved. Common areas could use a touch up. Pool is amazing. If you are...
