    Needs a LOT of TLC

    Great location, extremely dated property, rooms not as described. Left a day early.

    AN excellent location smack in the middle of Daintree. Close drives for sightseeing, freshwater swimming holes .

    Excellent location in the rainforest so close to lots of activities that I think we didn't go more than 3km from the room for the first few days. Surprisingly good food - Aussie share platter & spicy chicken burger were tops. Friendly staff, great pool & aircon! The rainforest climate is harsh on all that timber though - boardwalks & walls in the resort need some upkeep. Will stay there again.

    Mostly happy except a couple of annoying things

    Mostly happy except a couple of annoying things. The room and restaurant quite nice. Staff friendly except a little annoyed when I asked for extra wifi. You get 200MB which I thought was per day and had a hard time getting another 200MB for 2nd day which coincidentally was on a separate booking. We probably used our 200MB watching a short news video ironically because no TV in the room despite the room pic and room description saying there was a TV. So no TV was the 2nd annoying issue. We actually cut our trip short preferring to stay south of the Daintree. But the hotel is mostly nice and would get higher score if the could fix the wifi and TV issues.

    Stay at the Daintree

    It wasn’t bad but rooms need renovation. The Cassowary restaurant is fabulous & very reasonably priced.

    Great value

    The property is a little run down but it is excellent value and a lovely ppace to stay in the rainforest. The dinner platter featuring kangaroo, crocodile and barramundi was delicious. Friendly staff, nice pool and close ro Cape Trib attractions. Our second stay here.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This property is about as unique as it gets. It was beautiful, lush and has a tranquil and inviting freshwater pool. Fantastic and well priced options at the restaurant - the Utopia Australian platter for $50 was more than enough to feed three people - the best value quality restaurant we’ve come across in Queensland - the crocodile skewers with lemon myrtle, rib eye, kangaroo steak with pomegranate jus, calamari were all delicious and perfectly cooked. Our family loved the loft lodges which are in a private setting nestled within the rainforest - clean rooms, good towels, bed a little too firm for my liking but fine. There isn’t any phone coverage or internet in this remote area but you can purchase a wifi card and log in to wifi on your device at the restaurant. Important to note there are no TVs in the rooms. As this property is set within the Daintree there is an abundance of plants and trees, and wildlife. If you like remote and unique destinations, close to rainforest waterholes and jump off point to outer reef snorkeling trips, you’ll enjoy this one.
