    Very good

    the staff were friendly and helpfull. This would be a good option for families with children aged 3 and up.

    Keep in mind this is 'self contained' appartment style accomodation, so no daily cleaning service or linen change, if you want this daily is quite a large fee. Also appartments are double storey and I did not find this a good option for children under the age of 3.

    Good

    the staff were very helpful and they put us in another room because the first room was not a renovated one which was on the web as a deluxe room whitch we had booked. Really good pool area for the kids good breakfast as well

    they could get better sofas

    Fabulous

    We had a room that looked over the golf course which was nice. The pools were great for our 2 boys. They loved them. The shuttle bus service was good.

    Hard to get bath plug out of bath. For some reason when booking I thought there were some bushwalks you could go on from the resort. These didn't appear obvious.

    The staff were excellent, very helpful./ Location good. Near beach and able to walk to town. Shuttle service very good. Restaurant excellent, chef a gem.

    I stayed for 2 weeks. I would have thought that the bed linen could have been changed in that time. If I went for a 2 week period again, I would book two separate weeks, therefore getting new linen on the second week

    Very good

    This resort has several pools which are suitable for small children to adults. It is a necessity as the beach is unusable most of the year due to jellyfish. The resort is also very safe for children and has good sized, comfortable, airconditioned accommodation. There is reasonable access to the beach and transport into Port Douglas is easily available.

    We have stayed there several times and the accommodation has always been clean and everything has worked. This time the TV, phone, microwave and washing machine brokedown and several lights went out. Most were due to the recent cyclone and were fixed straight away. The rooms also needed some airing but were okay by the end of the stay.

    Good

    the resort pools are fantastic very family friendly. the outdoor bbq area was very good as we travelled as a large group.

    the facilities are quite old the dishwasher leaked and so did the washing machine and the couches in our room were very uncomfortable poor design. The wait staff were not friendly in the restaurant and needed some extra training in their jobs.

    Superb

    The pool was excellent, the apartment was fantastic for us with everything we needed (except a bodum).

    Bit disappointed about the tennis court, mini golf facilities (latter doesn't exist any more); thought the breakfast was pretty basic for the cost, and would have liked a little more variation in the dinner menu.

    All staff were friendly and never too busy to help. As for the Villa's, they are amazing. We could not fault them in anyway. The resort itself is quiet, relaxing and the only noise you hear is the wildlife. Absolutely spectactular pools. There is 3 pools to choose from. Tennis courts, bike path, Gymnasium. We have stayed at a few places such as Surfers Paradise and had a ok time due to the accomodation which cost more and certainly was nothing compared to Rendezvous Reef Resort Port Douglas. We will more then likely never stay in any other accomodation when travelling if there is a Rendezvous Resort available where we are travelling. Thanks

    Pool area was nice and the entrance foyer to reception. Quiet of a night time.

    No screens on the windows so we had to have the doors and windows closed all the time with the air-conditioner on (not comfortable of a night time) even when there was a nice breeze. No area outside of the room to relax despite there being a balcony on the top floor however we only had two plastic chairs for an apartment that slept 4 so we couldn't sit outside or drag any furniture up to the balcony. We felt suffocated and trapped within our room. Not enough utensils or appliances in the room for families. The dishwasher didn't wash properly and the numbers on the dial were faded so we had trouble working out the settings. Couch was extremely uncomfortable. No biscuits or cakes to purchase with a coffee from restaurant.

    Very good

    Resort Facilities were very good the room was partly refurbished but had everything you needed in it and was clean and welcoming

    Staff not the friendliest it said Tour desk at the hotel but they wouldn't even call up and find out about Golf course prices for us,they gave us the number and said call yourself at our cost,I work in a hotel and we would not do that.The beds were hard as a rock too very uncomfortable but maybe the new refurb beds are softer.

    Great, bed and couch a bit hard/uncomfy but all in it was a good place to stay and will be back. Coctails at happy hour average though. Great helpful staff.

    Very good

    Hotel staff was very professional and helpful.

    The kitchen was equiped with bare minimum of crockery and lacked simple and common things like paper towels, cling wrap and aluminium foil, utility knives and a coffee plunger. Fly screens on sliding doors in bedrooms, downstairs and in laundry would be very useful to ensure natural airflow.

    Really enjoyed the size and layout of the chalet

    Fabulous

    * The laned swimming pool

    The slope on the drive caused some damage to our car as the slope was to high... I informed reception. I think people who stays in that villa should be warned and told to park on the road. The only other issue we had was our neighbours were playing loud music until 2am which kept our family up
