Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Definitely 5 stars!! This was our third stay at Shantara and we can't wait to return. This time we had a one bedroom pool deck apartment which was so spacious. We just love everything about this resort. The standard of cleanliness is outstanding 👌The staff are warm , welcoming and efficient. 🤗The location is perfect, there is no need to have a vehicle. A five minute walk to Macrossan Street shops and restaurants, five minutes to the beautiful Four Mile Beach and an eight minute walk to the Marina. It is simply the PERFECT place to relax and enjoy beautiful Port Douglas.

Review:   Fantastic resort; clean, comfortable, plus nice and quiet. Great location; close to town centre and beach. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly; and take the time to experience the local tours so they can honestly recommend them to guests. Can't wait to go back again...

Review:   Shantara is in a great location and Is close to everything which was a huge plus. The room we stayed in was clean and spacious. I do however feel as though the name ‘Shantara Resort’ is misleading, as its just serviced apartments with no real resort element to it at all. My husband did make mention that he felt like he was staying in a retirement home. I also don’t think it was well communicated that you needed to pay an additional fee of $35 per day to have your room cleaned. All in all it was a nice place to stay but not the ‘Luxurious’ accommodation I thought it would be

Review:   You know how you're often disappointed after arriving at a venue that you've booked online? This is NOT one of those venues! What a spectacular location. Shantara Resort was everything we'd hoped for and more. Fantastic facilities, very clean and well cared for. All staff were friendly, helpful and very accommodating. Handy to the centre of town, marina and beach - we had a car but didn't need it at all. Extra bonus of being a child free venue - very peaceful! We had an amazing time and will definitely be back soon!

Review:   We spent 11 nights during the last part of August at the beautiful Shantara Resort in 2A ground floor pool deck 1BR apt. With a slider off the balcony into the bedroom and another slider off the balcony into the lounge/kitchen it was an extremely spacious apartment and together with the shared laundry facilities (with neighbouring 2B apt) we had everything we could have wished for to make our holiday comfortable. We enjoyed the cooking facilities including the BBQ facilities at the back of the pool area. The only grumble I had was that we received only 1 mid-stay room service which I feel for 11 nights is not enough. All that aside we loved our stay and will go back in a heart-beat. Reception staff are very welcoming and helpful with tour bookings etc. We have stayed in other resorts in Port Douglas and Shantara beats them hands down particularly as it is child-free. The location is as close as you need to be to the shopping centre and is a 5 minute walk across to the beach. Thankyou to the Shantara team.
