It's our first time to visit Great Barrier Reef

Mossman Gorge and port douglas

A travel blog entry by dianeandmike

It was a lush rainforest. We all enjoyed it. Especially the cold spring water for a dip. We all went to dinner at Salsa Bar and Grille. The food was great. Delicious. We went for a crocodile tour yesterday and actually saw a few while visiting the Daintree Rainforest. Wow...we are starting the preparation to leave this beautiful place. Mike and I love this upscale beach town. We just cannot believe you cannot get into the ...

Where the Rainforest meets the Reef

... nausea when we reached what was my favourite part of the trip, Mossman Gorge. This also involved a visit to the Aborigine Culture Centre where we met Steve who told us about how Aborigines survived in the rainforest, what they ate and how they caught dinner. The most fascinating of all was the paints that they made from coloured rocks and minerals found in the rainforest which were mixed with water on a stone. He then painted dots on his arm which he told us acted as identification in ...

    Beautiful Rainforest Resort

    The Ramada Resort in Port Douglas is lovely... Great staff who know all there is to know about the area, beautiful meal's in the restaurant and lovely rooms.

    I was very impressed by the spaciousness of the rooms, and how they are set around a mini rainforest complete with creek and lilly ponds.

    The cockatoo that lives in the reception area is a special point of difference!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Resort Port Douglas

    A great hotel

    from

    We stayed at the Radisson in August. As it was our honeymoon, we had been upgraded to a queen room which was wonderful. We loved the fact that the hotel is amid all the trees even if it did make finding a spot in the sun difficult.

    We used the bus to get in to Port Douglas which run quite efficiently. There is a charge, but if you've done your research you know that the hotel is a few miles from the town, so it was not a surprise to us.

    There is access to 4 mile beach from the hotel - about a 5 minute walk. It's worth making the walk along the beach to the town too. The marina was a bit disapointing though.

    The food & service in the restaurant were not great - much better in Port Douglas. Overall though, we had a great 5 days at the Treetops.

    Only so-so

    from

    Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights back in April. Got a good deal online for the stay, but the room we got was pretty bad. We had no view at all, even though we were on the third floor. I don't remember what we faced since it was so disappointing that we just kept the curtains closed, plus we weren't in the room most of the time. Most of the corridors/elevators were outdoor, so there were some bugs and insects as we walked to our room. But along one of the staircases, there was this HUGE spider on its net, and the spider (including the legs) was about the size of my palm! I was already disturbed by this spider, but there were also geckoes (about the size of my pinky) in the room! They were everywhere - on the window curtain, in the bathroom, live and dead ones!

    Consider Other Options

    from

    The Radison Treetops is an "ok" resourt, but not the quality one should expect from a Radison or the price that you are paying to stay here. The front desk staff although nice, did not go out of their way to ensure a pleasent stay or check in process. The resourt is so shadded that you don't see the sun or have any desires to use the pool. Although our room overlooked the pool, the majority of rooms have horrendous views of alleys, or junky walkways. I was extremely disappointed that I had to take a bus to get into the tourist areas of Port Douglas as the hotel is 5-10K away from anything; including resturants, 4 mile beach or shops. Although there is a bus service, the customer service of the drivers is appauling and it is expensive adding $10-20+ (family) to every meal and limiting your ability to come-and-go from the town and your hotel. Discussing issues with management was sub-par, they simply don't care.

    Great Place, Average Staff but 1

    from

    I stayed at Treetops back in the start of May.

    Top marks for top hotel!!

    from

    We stayed here in Feb 2004 as part of our Australia trip. The hotel was excellent and the room was newly modernised. We were lucky enough to have a room that backed on to the pool area which was really nice. The staff at the reception were wonderful and could not be more helpful. The beach is a few minutes walk away and when we were there it was completely deserted ( due to the heat wave and 'stinger' season).

    The restuarant was OK but Port Douglas definately had much more to offer, such as Table 41(one of the best resturants we have been to!!!)

    The hotel has a desk that will arrange trips for you and give advice on what to see & do. We went on the quick silver tours which were one of the best trips we did in Aus.

    Beautiful setting, some service could be better

    from

    We stayed here as part of our honeymoon last August. The trees make it seem really special and the bus to the town (although not always regular) is quite useful.

    The staff seemed to have trouble on quite a few occasions getting our lunch order right - strange, as we made virtually the same order every day for 10 days!! We were also interrupted 2 mornings in a row while we were waking up by the cleaning staff, despite a Do Not Disturb sign on the door.

    The pool area is beautiful and the choice of restaurants good, although we enjoyed eating in the town too. The trip desk was managed excellently.

    Radission beat Rydge for a couples holiday

    from

    We stayed 3 nights at Rydges Resort and 3 nights at Radisson Treetops (they are across the road from each other). Both were in hotel rooms and costs was the same. We definitely found the Radisson to be better pick, more modern rooms, nice pool and great restaurant by the pool.

    Gorgeous Resort

    from

    This has to be one of the most gorgeous hotels I have stayed in. The rooms are spacious and the rainforest overhead was tremendous. I adored the torches lighting the way to the restaurant at night. The staff were always pleasant and apart from the dire entertainer in the evenings (Think reeves and Mortimer - night club singer) everything was perfect.

    Great Atmosphere, Iffy Staff

    from

    The resort itself is beautiful. From the open-air lobby to the dense flora throughout the property, you get a feel that you really are in the middle of the rainforest. The beach is only a short walk away and the local bus shuttle drops you on the main strip on Port Douglas. My only complaints are that the staff is definitely on tropical time and the restaurants have some strange seating/menu policies depending on which ones are open. The rooms were average, but the pool area and overall feel of the place make it worthwhile. Would definitely consider staying there again.

    Relaxing and tranquil

    from

    Good hotel, very nice rooms. Hotel surroundings and grounds are lovely.

    although a little claustrophobic. Not much sun around the pool because of all the trees! You can use the pool and gym just across the road if you want more space, free of charge. Trip Desk were very helpful and arranged 2 excellent trips to the rainforest and to the Great Barrier Reef, awesome! A relaxing and tranquil hotel
