Unfortunately we were unable to meet Aiden and Alex, but Jenny took exceptional care of us. Her hospitality, directions, recommendations were very helpful and she made every effort to make our stay absolutely perfect. Large, clean, comfortable, quiet rooms with beautiful grounds located not far from town. We recommend the Lazy Lizard to anyone visiting Port Douglas.

Hi Vickie D,
Thank you so much for your 5 bubble review and so good to read that our Jenny took exceptional care of you. We knew she would as she is an amazing person and has the same high standards as ourselves. She did an exceptional job during our 3 week break away.
Hopefully we will get to meet you on your return to port in the future?
Thank you again and sorry we missed out on meeting you all.
Kind regards
Aidan & Alex

Lazy Lizard gets great reviews - when you stay there you will know why. There is nothing that you can put your finger on, the staff are super helpful, the rooms clean, well furnished, small details like USB chargers by the bed. (I have stayed in 5 star hotels like the Hilton, and am amazed that they do not have a USB charger by the bed!)The pool is just right, look out for the Jacuzzi button, we had a late night dip in the aforementioned, warm water, a super moon, how good does life get. Free bike loans, located 5 minutes from town, just a very good place to stay - I would go again.

Hi Tim H,
Thank you so much for your comprehensive review and thank you for choosing to stay with us. We eventually sourced those lamps with the USB socket as there is nothing worse than not being able to recharge your phone by your bed. If you have to unplug your lamp to utilise that socket, then you have no light!
Looking forward to welcoming you back again in the not too distant future, hopefully?
Thank you once again.
Kind regards
Aidan & Alex

Hi Sabrina R. Thank you so much for your 5 bubble review. We are very happy to check in guests that are driving by with no booking and we will pass on your compliments to Kaye and Lynne, our amazing housekeepers. Since we have changed over to the NBM, our wifi is so fast. Long may it continue :-)
Looking forward to welcoming you back again, hopefully, in the not too distant future!

Etc Etc we loved the Lazy Lizard. Aiden and Alex looked after us extremely well. Aiden handled tour bookings for us and was a wealth of knowledge on the area. The free ice machine is a nice touch!

My husband and I visited during “The Rainy Season.” Our hosts, Aiden & Alex, made our visit one to remember! They went above and beyond to help us in every way. We had a late arrival and they stayed after hours to greet us personally.
