Daintree Rainforest Retreat, Cow Bay
Great place to stay in the Rainforest!
The hotel was in the Rainforest and had a great ambiance. We had everything we needed. Our host was friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant/pub right across the street and it is a quick drive to the awesome Daintree discovery center.

Daintree Tree secret world of rain forest fantasti
The host,Travis, was very efficient and friendly as soon as we arrived. He showed us where to go and what to do. The place is pretty basic, no air cond and we did not have a kitchenette to cook our food. Trevis gave us some plates and cooking utensils and we used the BBQ area to cook our food, The place is very serene even though it is a motel, covered by deep foliage and surrounded by the forest. We got up in the morning and sat outside our room and listened to the sound of the forest. Because it was the beginning of the rainy season, the air was very cool and the two fans in our rooms did the job. The wifi was very bad but when one came to a place like the rain forest, we did not mind the lack of wifi. The place was very clean and housed the three of us very adequately and we enjoyed sitting in the BBQ area surrounded by foliage and the sound of the forest.

Cute raintree motel
charming little motel in the daintree rainforest, good hot water full kitchen, friendly staff. Only compliant they advertise they have wifi but they really only have it SOMETIMES at the office. Great bar b que grill outside and if you want to safe on food cost buy groceries in Caines or Mossman grocery stores before heading to rainforest.
