    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.

    Rude staff


    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


    Very spacious with lovely well-maintained gardens.

    Terrific pool area with licensed cafe; very relaxing.....

    Apartments tasteful and spacious....

    Staff couldn't do enough for us...very courteous, helpful and friendly....made us feel very welcome..

    All in all, most of the facilities of the larger resorts but without the price...

    Excellent holiday value........!!



    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!

    Day 15 – Atherton to Port Douglas

    It was a bit wet when we got up this morning. There had been a bit of light rain overnight but thankfully the canvas on the van was still dry. After packing up we again (and for the last time this trip) headed north. We made a couple of quick stops just out of Atherton. First was the Humpy Nut World (the girls think this is the funniest name of ...

    We're finally warm!

    ... slowly. In 2 days time we will be at out "technical" 1/2 way point in time. I had to get some parts from the hardware shop which opened at 7.00am & Kathy wanted to go to the wharf again to wet her line. So that all happened and about an hour later I picked her up & eventually we left the park & Cooktown at exactly 10.00am. We stopped at a little creekside rest area for lunch and were keen to get to a phone reception area because we had not been able to confirm a ...

    ... After checking out all these attractions and a wonder up the main street it was time for lunch which we had up stairs at a pub just opposite where the markets were held. A great view from up here of all the sights and right on the water as well, good spot. Went for a bit of a stroll down to the marina this is where all of the reef boats take people out to do their snorkelling and reef excursions from. While we were there we noticed ...

    ... Village. This little spot consists of a small caravan park very close to the river and this is also were they run most of the crocodile trips from a bit of a worry if your sleeping in a tent having one of those crawl into bed with you. These also a pub doesn't matter how small a place is these always a pub, a couple of shops selling the usual tourist junk and that's about it. Another chapter in Fran and Allan's Great Adventure comes to an ...
