Traveling with a 2 and 4 yr old, wife is also an internationally recognised travel consultant. Where do you start. Booked months ago, confirmed weeks ago and re-confirmed yesterday. Turn up to find we are placed at the furthest point of the resort especially after requesting to be near the pool, placed on the top floor with no lift and...

We were very disappointed with our stay at QT. The room was dirty (squashed bugs in the corners, used food in the fridge and freezer.) The staff were friendly, food was great and pool area was nice but that's where it ends unfortunately. We stayed the night and woke up in the morning with bites down our neck and top...

We went to QT for an early Father's Day. Had a lovely swim in the pool and ordered lunch which took a long time to come. The food was extremely expensive for the small amount. We ordered the sliders and had 2 tiny sliders each for $34 (total) It wouldn't have stung as much had it come with chips. We...

Before selecting this resort I read most of the reviews and the majority did not paint a very good picture, but decided to give it a go. That said I'm not about rubbishing anything, but there are some key points that people need to be aware of when staying here. The 'resort' is getting tired and the rooms are not...

Firstly thank you to all staff involved in helping our family celebrate our beautiful mothers birthday, everyone went above and beyond making the weekend memorable and could not have asked for for anything else.

QT Resort in Port Douglas is a great place to unwind and relax. The pool bar is epic as are the daily drink specials. The staff is young and attentive, perfect for this setting. The rooms can look a little tired, but you should be by the pool anyway.

Dear Anne3F, Tropical living to the max! What else do you need; Large lagoon pool, epic pool bar, daily specials and attentive staff to keep you going. Sounds like R & R was top priority and we delivered. Thank you for your wonderful review, hope to see you again soon! Cheers, Jeremy QT

Rooms were mouldy, musty and rust around the doors. Not cleaned properly. Every morning we would wake up to bugs on the floor. On our final day, went for a buffet breakfast at 7.30am and NOTHING in the hot food section was available. Grossly overpriced and highly over rated - certainly not worth 4 stars.

Terrific check in and welcome, clean room, nice pool area (although main resort pool full of children, not deep) and lovely cafe/bar area and restaurant, Bazaar. Our room 4226 was very small, although well equipped and very clean, excellent housekeeping. The bathroom is ridiculously small, with a large shower door which opens wide into the small room, floor becomes slippery...

We waited over two weeks to write this review, as we were hoping the bitter taste would go away, but it didn’t. For a couple that regularly travel all over the world, including to third world countries, the stay at the Port Douglas QT was probably the most confusing, insulting and disappointing hospitality experience of our lives. Don’t believe the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The next instalment in the QT Resorts series, QT Port Douglas, will be ready to bed on May the 12th, 2012.QT Resorts were launched by QT Port Douglas' gorgeous sister resort, QT Gold Coast, and this second coastal paradise will also include signature concepts such as the Bazaar Marketplace dining option that has quickly become the number one rated culinary experience on the Gold Coast. All guest rooms have been given a facelift with new QT beds, 42" flat screen TVs, and hand-sourced stylish fabrics and finishes. You will see in this resort the thread of designer decor that lifts QT Resorts to a new level of sophistication. The addition of 100 sun loungers by the pool can also be seen, forming the perfect vantage point from which to sip the day away. QT Port Douglas has a new open bar area, Estilo, which will be the place where you whet your lips before you dine in Bazaar, and to keep you swimwear ready, we also have begun an update on our gym and leisure offerings. From June until September, you can take in the balmy nights in front of a custom cinematic experience, Moonlight Cinema, designed especially for our guests. This sun kissed resort is a must for a lover of designer hotels and resorts. ... more   less
