We had a comfortable stay and a bonus breakfast with an entertaining breakfast host. 2km (pleasant) walk to Port Douglas town or you can catch a coach or bike ride.

We stayed at the Sands Resort in a 2 bedroom apartment for 4 nights over NYE. The apartment was perfect for our family of four. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was just what we needed. If we holiday in Port Douglas again we'd stay at the Sands again. Thanks!

Stayed in number 27, both bedrooms have air-cons as does the main area. New kitchen and all you need to enjoy your stay. Catch the local bus to and from town, just wave it down. Love the pool and bbq. Breakfast is good, bring your own fruit & yoghurt to complement the cereal etc. Management are very friendly and helpful....

Immaculate property - gardens, pool and apartment were excellent. The continental breakfast and sandpit by the pool were a bonus! Even though it was peak season the resort was nice and quiet. Easy drive to town, perfect for our young family (11 month old and 3 year old). Would highly recommend staying here.

Dear Guest, I am very disappointed to read this review, we stand by our high level of cleanliness which is evident in the other guest reviews on this website. Upon inspection the only mould found in this apartment, pointed out by the guest, was inside the bathroom sink drain. The guest went to extraordinary lengths to locate this, by dismantling...
