We have just come back from 8 days in Port Douglas. I have also reviewed Sky Safari, Calypso, Synergy, Aquarius, Jungle Surfing, Rainforest Centre and most restaurants.
On Coconut Grove:
We had a penthouse apartment with roof pool. We found it clean and very functional; the staff was very helpful in making all our reservations and giving advice on the activities. Coconut Grove is just on the commercial end of Macrossan Street and so only a few minutes’ walk from all the action.
The Apartment had a great setup with good kitchen and appliances. Nice bathroom and products. The servicing on our fourth day was good and it did not worry us it was not done each day as we are tidy people. We had a nice view over the town and out to the hinterland, with plenty of places to eat. Also just few minutes walk from the beach. There is secure parking. Coles is only 5 minutes down the street where you can buy everything. The town has a good pharmacy which supply travel sickness tablets much cheaper than buying them on a boat.
Location: close to town and no need to take a bus or drive. Just walk down to the restaurants.
Staff: friendly, efficient and knowledgeable and can make all the bookings. They arranged a car to pick us up at the airport, all tours and restaurants.
Apartment: Spacious enough to do nothing (if it was raining or just chilling out) or just use as a place to sleep.
You are not in a 400 room hotel where you get lost.
No shade in pool area (we only used the pool once and after 4 pm when we had some shade).
Can be noisy if people around are noisy, but OK if the outside doors were closed.
On the high-end price range.
Charge $10 per day for Wi Fi. (At these prices I think it would be included in price).
Overall I would recommend Coconut Grove if price is not your issue and you are after the freedom of an apartment.
