“Very comfortable and a convenient location”
Able to relax, swim in the pool - just pick one of six, have a nice BBQ- invites new friends to join you, catch bus to town every 15 minutes, tour buses pick up within the area. So so convenient.
“Just what we were looking for”
We stayed in a two bedroom, private plunge pool apartment and it was perfect! Both bedrooms were very separate and private so it was ideal for two couples or a family. Fully self contained, with our own pool that was in a walled courtyard. We looked forward to just being in the hotel as it was so relaxing. It is a little out of town but there is a shuttle bus from right next door every half hour and taxis in Port Douglas are cheap. Highly recommended!
A great hotel just outside Port Douglas. We booked a swim out room and would definitely recommend paying the extra for this, it was great to get up and walk out of the room directly to the pool. The hotel was slightly outside the town centre, but there are 2 local bus services that run approx. every 15 mins until about 11pm and a good restaurant at the neighbouring hotel and about 10 mins walk away. All in all a fantastic holiday
Swim put room so worth it!!! only down side is location if you dont have a car. but shuttle bus next door very handy but rooms are fantastic and clean, would stay here again
Stayed 2 nights at this hotel on a room only basis. Good value. Excellent room and very clean and well maintained. Hotel approx 4km out of town but a shuttle bus operates from the Ramada next door at a small cost. The staff were very helpful and gave us information on where we could eat etc.
The swim up back patio really made this place. Super relaxing and great location if you have a car or bike to ride around the area. I only wish they were more liberal with towels since there is pool and you likely want to shower after a swim, so there is a lot of drying off going on. Highly recommended.
“Excellent hotel in a great location”
We thought it odd that reception closes at 7pm! Staff members were otherwise friendly and helpful. The printers available for use in reception (for a fee and not after 7pm obviously) were not always working. That service could perhaps be improved. Business travellers might like to confirm what facilities are available to them before booking. The hotel is a little out of town, but no matter as we walked along 4 mile beach into town for breakfast and then caught the town shuttle back for $3. A great way to start the day.
“Great week of luxury”
Our hotel accommodation was very spacious, so big you could live there. It was spotlessly clean. It would have been nice to have internet in the room. The pools were always clean and barbeque area nice and easy to use. Our room had a lovely spa, perfect to relax after busy days sightseeing. l would stay there again every time.
“GREAT family holiday”
We arrived at our hotel around 11.00am and was greeted warmly by the receptionist. After giving us the keys, we made our way to our room. We had booked a two bedroom swim out room for our family of 4. The rooms were large and spacious - two units in one. The kitchen a good size and the main bedroom was joined by a spacious study which made it seem all the bigger. The room was clean and the kitchen was well fitted out. The air conditioning units were put to good use as the temperatures were HOT outside. Air con units strategically placed in the important parts of the room eg bedroom, living. The hotel is situated a little further out from town, but if you have a car, its not a problem. The beach is around 100 metres walk to the end of the street. The gardens were immaculate. Staff were friendly and able to give tips of places to go for dinner etc. The concept of the swim out pool was well utilised and enjoyed. There are no restaurants within the hotel, but a good bbq area can be enjoyed and there are plenty of other places to eat in town. Overall we found our stay at Oaks Lagoons an extremely enjoyable family holiday adventure and recommend to others.
“Best relaxing holiday I have had”
When I booked Oaks Lagoons at Port Douglas, I was looking for a really relaxing holiday, in apartment accommodation in a resort environment out of the centre of town. And that was exactly what I got. I stayed in a one bedroom Deluxe Swimout apartment, which was clean, well equipped and comfortable. Having the convenience of the pool at my doorstep meant that I could relax by the pool, dipping in and out as I wished, as well as have the comfort of my home at my fingertips. The resort grounds, pools and facilities were clean and well maintained. Oaks Lagoons is a 5 minute walk from 4 Mile Beach and about 3 kms from the centre of Port Douglas so I would often walk into town either along the beach or on a meandering footpath off the main road. You can also hire a bike from reception if you want to and cycle around Port Douglas. The girls at reception were extremely helpful, booking tours and massages for me, as well as dealing with my requests promptly and without any fuss. I would highly recommend Oaks Lagoons for a relaxing get-away in gorgeous Port Douglas.
