Thank you to every member of staff who make trips here so perfect. Faultless service and location.
I have just returned from Port Douglas after spending a week in this wonderful hotel. Whilst the hotel itself is comfortable, the most impressive part of the stay was the friendliness of the staff - Lee, Elena (?), Aaron and Steve. They ensured that our time with them was most enjoyable. Our main reason for going there was to celebrate a friend's 70th Birthday. We dined there on the night and were set up outside by the pool with our own waiter (Aaron). This was fantastic as we were away from other diners which meant we did not annoy them or vice versa. The "Birthday Girl" was ecstatic!! The location of the hotel is also impressive, just off the Beach and away (but not too far away) from the rest of Port Douglas main shopping precinct.
I recently stayed in a ground floor ocean view room for 2 nights during the Taste Port Douglas Food Festival with two other stressed out mums needing a relaxing kid-free break. Firstly our preferences for room positioning and bedding configuration exceeded our expectations with all preferences met! We were greeted and shown to our room by the friendliest and most helpful receptionist I've ever met. The breakfast buffet left nothing to be desired with amazing mushrooms, poached eggs, bacon everything else you expect to be on a buffet and the espresso and cappuccino was surprisingly fantastic (though this is not included in the buffet, but I was very happy to pay extra for such great coffee). The staff here go over and above to deliver excellent service, we felt very well looked after, and thats exactly what we needed. The room was very clean and well maintained, nothing broken or missing, mini bar fridge stocked with wine, chocs etc and complimentary pod coffees and teas. The location is perfect in my opinion, being directly opposite the beach we made sure we did a good long beach walk and ocean swim before being distracted by shopping and the food festival a couple of blocks walk the other way. And of course close enough to all the action that once we arrived, we needed no other transportation other than our feet which is great for those beer tasting nights at the new and amazing Hemingways Brewery! By the end of our weekend we felt 100% renewed, rejuvenated and relaxed and ready to give ourselves back to our families. Can't wait to do it again, and we will most definitely be staying at the Peninsula Boutique Hotel.
An oasis you will never want to leave...
