"Family Friendly" Rydges Reef Resort Port Douglas Tip by CL1706

Rydges Reef Resort Port Douglas, Port Douglas: 1,149 reviews and 1 photos

** Stayed - October 2004 **

We chose this hotel because it offered the luxury of three bedrooms in a two level apartment - which we needed for our family (two adults, three children). The resort was fantastic, with the choice of three swimming pools (one with a swim-up bar), a couple of handy restaurants, and a general store located on the premesis.
The only downside was the distance into the main centre of Port Douglas (approx 2 km), but we were able to use the regular local bus service which picked up and dropped off inside our resort.
Also offered a 'Kids Club' where our children were able to play with other children as well as take part in activities which were based around the water, and the 'ocean' feel of Port Douglas.
A great place to relax with your family. Highly recommnded.
