Best Family Accommodation in Port Douglas

“My family stayed at the Central Plaza Apts 4th-11th Dec and had a fantastic time. The apartments were well equipped, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Given the time of year; stinger season having access to a lovely large pool was perfect!…
Located around 7 mins walk to the main shopping street, marina and beach… it was ideal!
Coles supermarket — few mins drive.
A special mention must go the managers Ian and Fiona… very friendly and so helpful!
Would love to return to Port Douglas and would definitely consider staying here again.

Excellent Apartments, Friendly and helpful Managment, Great Location

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

This was the first time we had been to Port Douglas and were looking for a mid-priced, 2 bed apartment near the centre of the town, as we did not have a car for the first week or our 10 night stay.

We did some pretty detailed research on-line and also looked at the reviews of several places before deciding that the Central Plaza looked comfortable, affordable and close to restaurants and shops as well as being well reviewed.

We found Fiona and Ian to be very helpful and knowledgeable managers who went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always happy to give advice on tours, local attractions and services. They were happy to book tours for us and their local knowledge added to the ease of our stay.

The 2 bedroom apartment we had was clean and comfortable and had all the essential kitchen and laundry facilities. The beds were good, the bathrooms very big and the living area adequate for 2 adults and 2 children 10 and 13.

The air conditioning worked well, the pool was great as were the BBQ facilities. The bedrooms were quiet and the apartments seemed well maintained.

The second bedroom was a bit small and there was not much room to move when the suitcases were opened. It was fine for two smaller children but would be a bit of a squeeze for two teenagers or adults. The main living area was quite dark and we had to keep the lights on during the day, however as we spent little time there during the day, it was not a major problem.

We highly recommend the apartments to families on a moderate budget and couples looking for a friendly and relaxed place to stay.

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

We have just stayed for a week with Central Plaza Port Douglas and loved it!

The Port Douglas carnivale was in full swing and the weather was just perfect. We especially loved all the help that Ian and Fiona gave us to ensure that we did not miss any of the festivities. The Seafood extravaganza on Marina Mirage wharf was the best with the live band playing on the back of one of the boats and the food and beer and wine keep flowing.

The huge swimming pool in Central Plaza is looking great with the new furniture and BBQ – I can see why the guests all love spending the nights congregating around it – the temperature was just perfect and was a lovely way to spend the evenings after exploring Port Douglas and the reef during the day.

Thank you for a great week. We can`t wait to come back.

We really do think that you have got the perfect Port Douglas Holiday Accommodation.

Excellent Hotel With Great Service – Plaza Port Douglas

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

My husband, myself and my daughter’s family stayed at Central Plaza in April of this year.
The hotel was very clean with excellent facilities, great swimming pool and we spent many evening meals around the huge bbq area. The owner’s went out of their way in helping us organise our return coach trip and we couldn’t ask for better hosts. This hotel is great for family’s because of the size of the rooms, and with it being only a 5 minute walk to the beach. I would recommend this hotel to all travellers.

Come and see for yourself! For great Port Douglas hotel accommodation, look no further than Plaza Port Douglas.
