Nice quiet studio room, large swimming pool. Resort located approx. 4 miles out of town requiring shuttle service ($9 round trip pp or purchase multi-day pass). Very frustrated and disappointed that the only restaurant on the property was inflexible and refused to prepare simple vegetarian alternatives, as there were only a couple of vegetarian options on the lunch and dinner menus and our room did not have a kitchen/ette. Restaurant also refused to serve items from the in-room menu in the dining room. Food and beverage manager was supposed to "investigate" situation but we were never informed of any solution/alternatives. Inflexibility forced us to eat in town daily causing an additional shuttle expense and inconvenience. Front desk staff professional, friendly, and tried to help resolve a series of frustrations with the property. Patrick, in particular, was very friendly and helpful. When back in Port Douglas, we will choose another resort.

My visit unfortunately coincided with the back end of Cyclone Nora. This caused extensive rain throughout my stay. The rain was so heavy that it came through the roof in the lobby area.
Staff did all they could in the circumstances but it meant we couldn’t fully enjoy the facilities. That said, it would have been nice for staff to let us know about full processes (restaurant bookings/ private functions) at the time of check in. Also better communication would have been appreciated

Dear Bluey_888,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide our team with feedback in regards to your recent stay with us.
We're disappointed that due to the extreme weather conditions you were unable to see the Resort at its best or use all the facilities we have on offer. We'd love you to come back at a sunnier time, please email me directly on h8762-gm2@accor.com if you'd like to speak further or plan on a return visit.

I’ll start with the positives. The pool and surrounding areas were amazing. The pool was huge, clean and lots of fun. The gardens were well kept and we were suitably impressed. The resort looked fantastic.
I’ll end with negatives. The breakfast staff were extremely busy - and this reflected in the service we received. The unit we stayed in required maintenance to the air con, tv, washing machine and bbq. One request to assist with bbq at dinner time resulted in a lengthy wait for staff to assist leaving us to eat our planned meal about 3 hours later. We purchased a drinks package as a extra when booking - different information was provided by staff on its use which added frustration rather than enjoyment in its use.
All in all I would recommend Sea Temple to people that love beautiful surroundings and don’t require any resort involvement. If like us you require assistance or have the misfortune of requiring more from staff I wouldn’t recommend this resort for you as you will leave like us -dissatisfied.

The hotel has a great swimming pool,the swim out rooms are good for the kids they love it. The rooms are big and have everything that you need. I went with my family and we had 3 rooms,one of them was smaller than the others with only one bathroom even though we all paid the same, which was disappointing. We had dinner in the restaurant one night and the food was really good and the staff and service was excellent.The breakfast is ok, but I found most of the breakfast staff doing their best to avoid any eye contact with the guess. Also front reception staff I found 2 amazing ladies couldn’t do enough to help, then another staff member head down going about there Day regardless that the guess standing waiting to be acknowledged.

Great 2 bed roomed apartment with a well stocked kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a roof top spa and bbq area. Room was spacious and well maintained.

Nescafe coffee sachets have no place in an upmarket resort. Would love to have seen a Nespresso machine and pods.
At breakfast where there was a great coffee machine the chilled water had a strong chlorine taste.
2 little thingseasily fixed.
