My partner and I stayed at Shantara for 4 nights. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, very clean and modern. The onsite pools are heated and clean, very relaxing. There is also a BBQ area near the pools which allows you to cook your own food if you so choose. The resort itself is a short walk to town which...

We booked a good value earlybird deal and stayed in a studio room with pool access. The room was very small, although ample warning and the option to upgrade was provided upon booking and again at check-in. However, we mainly used the resort as a base to explore the reef and Daintree so this suited our needs and budget. The...

The property is upscale. We stayed in a studio room. It was very nice but quite small. Proximity to downtown is a short 10 minute walk. The so called breakfast they provide is fine if you are staying for 2 nights or less. The reception woman we interacted with for our 4 nights was very unfriendly and tended to treat...

We stayed here in August 2016 and loved our time here. The foyer was airy, with pools on either side, , beautiful collonades with greenery leading to the cool comfortable apartments, which all open onto pool access or pool views ( upper story) Very friendly staff, no problem when we found ourselves on the outside without a key one night....

We were a little concerned about our stay here as we had been informed that there would not be any reception staff to greet us upon our arrival from our flight from Ayers Rock.

We stayed here for 4 nights in January, very clean accommodation, staff very friendly, very quiet as we went in low season but that meant we pretty much had the pool to ourselves. Close to walk to the Main Street with bars and restaurant and to the beach. Would recommend.
