Historical Traveler Reviews Port Douglas Plantation Resort
Excellent value - a great place to stay
This was our first holiday with our little one (18 months) and we couldn't have picked a better place. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The villa was clean and comfortable - nothing grand but excellent for the money we were paying.
Best of all was the pool area - clean and wonderful for our daughter with the wading area BUT also great for a really good swim in the larger section.
Location was a little further out of P.D. than expected but so are nearly all of the hotels and with the frequent shuttle bus/great taxi service it was never a problem. Can't rate this 'budget' holiday highly enough. I've paid a lot more for much much worse.
Stayed at this place whilst visiting daughter in Cairns. Would not stay ever again due to aggressive and unhelpful staff when asking for room to be cleaned/directions to attractions/recommendations for restaurants.
Location inconvenient, not central and need to drive to be in amongst the bars/restaurants and shopping of downtown Port Douglas. OK, the price is good for a 2 bed apt, but you get what you pay for!
I would have liked the guest to have voiced her concerns to our staff at the time so that any problems could have been rectified immediately.
If the person who made this complaint would like to identify herself to management I am sure we could work something out for the next time she choose to visit her daughter in Cairns , even be it so far away.
Excellent value for money
In the days of finding poor value for money in resort packages, Plantation Resort provides excellent "bang for the buck". Fantastic breakfasts every morning (complimentary , of course) , great swimming pool for the kids , and tennis courts , entertainment, library , bar, bistro etc etc. The 2 bedroom villas have plenty of room for a family of four, and Plantation Resort is at the entrance to Port Douglas, easily accessible.
A family destination
Plantation Resort stands apart from other Port Douglas facilities. For a family you will find the resort is as friendly, clean and safe as they come. Spacious and well maintanied facilities and a team of staff members who are willing to go the extra mile.
Value for Money
Just a quick note to mention about the wonderful resort that is the Plantation Resort.
Upon arriving our family were impressed about the cleanliness of the resort and the facilities there which were all in excellent condition.
Love the Pool area!
Staff were helpful at all times during our week stay and if we visit Port Douglas again I will make sure that we stay at the Plantation resort as I found it to be excellent value for money.
See you again.
Facilities second to none
Great place to kick back, relax and enjoy the surrounds. Awesome staff, very friendly. Would loved to have been able to stay longer.
Don't believe the hype
Strange how ALL the previous reviews gave this place maximum stars AND were all Australians who had visited in a recent 3 week period.
Stayed here for 3 nights early November and enjoyed my time in PD. However, if this place is representative of 5 star accommodation in Port Douglas for the previous reviewers, then all I can say is that there are the equivalent in seven and eight star options in PD that these people have obviously not seen. Honestly, this place is clean and tidy, but is a little out of the way and is nothing special in terms of architecture, dining or service.
Relaxing at Plantation
Port Douglas Plantation Resort provided our family with excellent self contained accommodation. Rooms were clean and spacious and the kids had plenty of room to run around. We enjoyed the central pool & cafe area and must compliment the friendly staff. Reception were great organising day trips for us, nothing seemed too much trouble. We had a great stay & would definately stay again when next in the area. Congratulations guys!!
Friendly, relaxing, perfect

Aboslutely fabulous 7 night holiday, great staff, safe and perfect for the kids. A really good family holiday location. Can't wit to go back to the Plantation Resort!

We have spent the day in Pinner, having coffee with Kathleen and lunch with Alan and Emma. Jean had to do a bit of last minute shopping ie a bag to carry some of the heavy stuff from her very heavy suitcase!!! We are now off to Terminal 5!! with Alan.

We suddenly feel under dressed as well - Australians are a pretty well dressed bunch - well turned out, affluent and stylish. We suddenly looked like we felt - backpackers with limited wardrobes and limited funds! Never mind; the girls struggle with it but they’ll have to get used to it. Grumble grumble.
