I read hundreds of reviews and many people complaining about the rooms qualities being old and tired. To be honest, the rooms were well maintained and in good conditions. The furniture could be newer but it is OK. The beds are really comfortable. If you are doubting because see a lot of reviews complaining about it just give them a try. I doubt that you are going to be in the room a lot of time.
FYI - I've been in plenty of five stars resort in Mexico, USA, Dominican Republic, Argentina, and New Zeleand and can tell is not far behind. Yes, maybe they can refurnish or make some renovations. But take into account that you are going to be enjoying the awesome pools and lagoons...
Hope this helps!
My experience was really nice!
I went with my couple!
Great place we stayed 4 nights in a small bed sit type room. It was great size for a few days, great little outdoor sitting area and ceiling fans and airconditioner worked well. Staff were helpful and the extras that are free to use were perfect!! Beach towels, bikes, esky etc made it so much easier to day trip to the rainforest on a self drive. I will be staying there next time we are in Port Douglas.

Great location. Located on the main road, Macrossan. Able to walk to all shops and restaurants. One minute walk to the beach. Fred and Antonia were the most helpful, friendly hosts I have ever encountered. Rooms were very quiet and the pool area was very lush.
We absolutely loved our stay and the resort was wonderful. The staff were exceptional and Port Douglas - Paradise! The only criticism I would make is the fact the there are no fly screens. I would've loved to open the sliding doors to let the lovely cool breezes into our room but too many mozzies came in! Although the air con and the fans are great, there is nothing like a cool breeze!
Less than three km from Port Douglas, this resort is 500 metres from Four Mile Beach and one km from the Rainforest …More
We really enjoyed staying at this hotel and would definitely go back. It had everything we were looking for including a great location near the beach and town, a small kitchen, a nice tub in the room, and a huge balcony overlooking the beach. We could hear and see the ocean.
