LUM, CARDIFF - This was one, if not the best, ever holiday experiences we've had, right from the first contact by email to a very emotional farewell! If you're staying in Port Douglas - just don't look anywhere else. The only way of knowing and experiencing what I'n saying is to stay there. It's location is perfect - just 50 metres from the beautiful 4 Mile Beach and a short walk to all the facilities of Port Douglas. They provide everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, to make your stay perfect, and nothing is too much trouble. There are apartments of all sizes to meet your needs and a lovely pool to swim and relax. They will arrange all your activities and trips to suit your needs. We found it very hard to leave and can't wait to go back. 23/4/16

SULLIVAN TWILL- AGE 10, NEW YORK - The hotel was a great place to stay because the location was ideal. It is very kid friendly and the staff were extremely accommodating and provided great information and local tour bookings for our family adventures. Also they have a great pool it has the perfect temperature and they very enjoyable pool toys. The room was very nice because it has air conditioning and has a kitchen. In the end I thought it was very fun and nice. So I definitely recommend you to stay at By the Sea Port Douglas.  21/4/16

GLORIA SYMONS, HERBERTON, AUSTRALIA - We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel and had an amazing time. Would definitely go back. Situated right near the beach and all the beach equipment such as eskies for picnics, beach chairs, everything you need for the beach was included even push bikes. The rooms were well equipped for cooking and we had a lovely little courtyard overlooking the lush tropical gardens.Well worth the stay, right on the main street so shops were not far away. 20/4/16

SABRINA, GOLD COAST, AUSTRALIA - Amazing Staff, Amazing Location!!! Love it all! Stayed in the first floor, balcony had partial sea view, but was beautiful! Hotel offers chairs, towels bikes plus more to use it for free! it was an amazing experience... Certainly recommend to anymore that wants a relaxing holiday! 18/4/16

CATH J, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - By The Sea is a wonderful place to stay at the beach end of Macrossan St. It's clean, comfortable, really friendly gorgeous staff and everything you could want for free hire from reception for a perfect day on a perfect beach- beach iPod boom boxes, eskies, ice, beach trolleys, towels, even bikes that are a great way to see this quaint sunny town. Love it and highly recommend the Queen Cosy- as it's name suggests it is cosy but perfect for two people with a superb private balcony with jungly outlook for chilling. The beach is divine with the finest and therefore very compact sand in Australia- forget the crocs, beware of the sand!!! It's hard to get off! Forget nookie on the beach! Thanks everyone from By The Sea you are all lovely. 19/4/16

AMY-JAYNE - This was our 4th visit to by the sea and we weren't disappointed. We booked a partial sea view room which was lovely and had plenty of space for us and our 5 month old. The thought that has gone into this place is brilliant. The room has a kitchen area that was well equipped and a bbq on the balcony. In the reception area there's everything you could think of (and more!) to enjoy the beach....towels, chairs, loungers, eskies, inflatables etc. They also have an extensive and up to date dvd collection. The girls at by the sea are lovely and were so accommodating! We look forward to our next trip. 18/4/16

MICHELE, LIMA, PERU - We just spent three nights at By the Sea, and it as great ! "The girls" are so helpful and nice ! The place lent us all the necessary equipment for our time at the beach, umbrella, chairs, beach towels, cooler box, bicycle ! etc.....and even a little wheel cart to pull all the stuff needed to the nearby wonderful 4 mile beach which is only meters away ! Also a very easy access to the beach and shops, and a convenient lent shopping little trolley to bring all our goodies back from the supermarket ! ! The room was nice, AC, ventilator, good internet, great kitchen facilities little balcony to have breakfast or dinner ( the only thing missing there was a light !) . The girls also organized the transport service to/ from Cairns and it was excellent ! Nice refreshing swimming pool ! Overall a great experience ! We recommend it ! 5/4/16

ELLE, BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA - The ladies at "By The Sea Port Douglas" were amazing!! They couldn't have been more accommodating. My partner and I stayed there for our anniversary and anytime we had a question, they were more than happy to answer it (always with a smile of their face!). They provide anything you can think of at no extra cost...bikes, eskies, huge selection of DVD's, board games, beach chairs, blow up pool toys, wi-fi and much much more! They were very knowledgeable about all the tours in the surrounding areas and helped us narrow them down. So handy to the beach and the main street of cafes/restaurants. The perfect beach holiday! 1/4/16

MANY JB, LANCASTER, UNITED KINGDOM - We stayed for 3 nights in March 2016 and found the resort to be exactly as described. It is not p[possible to fault By The Sea as the owners have thought of everything. They provide all cleaning equipment and the room was immaculate and bright and very colourful and the bed so comfy. We felt welcomed by all the girls and borrowed a great dvd to watch on a TV that was superb. No expense has been spared to make this a great family holiday resort. We also loved the location. A great place to stay all is all. Would definitely return again. It is all the small details that make the difference, like free beach towels and free deckchairs and cool boxes and free ice. Many thanks to all x 29/3/16
