Spent 2 nights here after extending our 5 night stay at Nelly Bay.
Super friendly management and location opposite the beach and adjacent to the Hotel & Bus stop.
Nice pool , bar and Bistro are all at your doorstep. Rooms are basic but clean. Adjacent Bikini Bar serves breakfast, lunch, coffee and super pizzas & is open on certain nights too.
Overall, good value for money.

Really enjoyed staying at this motel. The facilities were basic but they have been maintained well. The bed and towels were comfortable and clean. The host Eve was so helpful and friendly. Close to beach and bistro. We will stay there again!!

The friendly manner of the staff who showed a real willingness to help us plan our four day stay made this a very positive experience for us. Much more than your usual motel experience.
Room was very spacious and well equipped. Central location with a variety of nearby eating out options helped make our stay a relaxing one.

This accommodation seems to be inconsistent with our other experiences with TripAdvisor. This accommodation is equal to an American Motel 6 or "Budget Inn." The family units may be better. Other seasons may be better, but we wished we had remained in Townsville or flown home early.

1. The beach that is denoted as being close is Geoffrey Bay. Small beach "maybe"and a mud flat when the tide is out.

2. When we checked in the nice lady who checked us in mentioned that our room was nearest the beach. Actually, while this is true, the more accurate is, "The room is nearest the highway."

3. One of the pools is closed. The lounge chairs are not relocated to make the second pool more conducive. All the seating at the second pool is picnic benches.

4. Internet is spotty. It can come and go. Also, at times it can be difficult to log on.

Positives:

1. Several food options on site. Others within walking distance.

2. The bus stop is near. Alma Bay which has a better beach is a 1/4 to 1/2 mile walk.

3. Staff are nice people. The accommodation is simply not "three star" in any way.

4. Not expensive. However, a week earlier we stayed at the very nice Ramada Resort (Port Douglas) for the same price. Also, the Ramada had about the same rating.

Sorry to hear that you were not happy staying with us on this beautiful tropical island . We are a three star motel on an island but certainly not Ramada , a four star resort in Port Douglas. No idea about a highway on Maggie but you are right Alma bay is a better beach certainly for swimming.Thank you for your views.

Enjoyed our weekend get away. Staff are friendly. Close yo pub, walk to the Beach.
Shops, stores and restaurants close.
Arcadia Village has it all.

Well worth the stay.
