Reviewed 3 April 2013

What a lovely place, clean bright modern with a lovely pool.
We even had a jacuzzi bath which was fab.
The two managers were just lovely, so friendly and helpful.
We were surrounded by lovely shops and restaurants with the supermarket just accross the road.
The marina was 5 minutes walk with lovely boat trips.
Oh wish i was back there now!

Room Tip: the room we had was 217 overlooking the pool with views over the mountains, just lovely!

We stayed at the Newport and will most defiantly stay there again!! It is located in the main street of port douglas right across the road from a supermarket and fantastic qld pubs and restaurants. The complex does have a few units but not more than about 20 so it is very private and secluded. We felt like we could have been anywhere in the world yet when we walked outside we were where all the action was in town. Walking distance to most things. The staff especially Patrick were so friendly and accomidating. We really couldnt fault anything apart from not being able to stay there longer! cant wait to return!!

The Newport is in the best location you could ask for, smack bang in the middle of Port Douglas's main strip. There is beaches a short walk on either end of the street, supermarket across the street, restaurants everywhere.

The apartment i had was right infront of the pool, but i had no noise problems at all. The rooms were clean and airconditioned and looked like they had been recently refurbished. There was wireless in the room, aircon, tv, huge bathroom and shower.

The pool was beautiful, and had sun most of the day, and regardless of what others have written on here, the pool was definitely heated. It was hot while i was there, so you would think the pool didn't need heating, but it just made it the poerfect temperature, and takes the cold edge off the water. Theres also a BBQ area right alongside the pool, so easy to have a nice lunch right there in the sun.

Patrick and the other employees were all fantastic, helped with any questions, queries, and tour bookings and suggestions.

I travelled and was staying alone, and found these apartments to be very safe and secure.
I would, and have, recommended these apartments strongly.

Newport is right on the main street in port Douglas close to the main bars.
I has a great pool which is quiet as its a small hotel, with a BBQ free to use.
Each room has a fridge and some I think have kitchen. We had a basic room, fairly small but big bathroom with large spa bath.
Also had a nice large terrace with comfy sun loungers and table and chairs which was nice for evening drinks.
Room had big tv With movie channels and also plates/bowls etc
For the price it was a great hotel

We stayed at the Newport for 4 nights and it was fantastic. The location is perfect - walking distance to Four Mile Beach and the Marina and a huge selection of restaurants and bars. We stayed in room 5 which was a huge apartment with full size fridge, kitchen, living room and bedroom with ensuite. The free BBQ at the pool combined with a Coles directly across the road meant we didn't have to eat out every night too. Would definitely recommend this resort to anyone holidaying in Port Douglas

we have stayed at the Newport a few times and it never fails, the location is perfect so close to all that port has to offer. Spacious family rooms, the spas are great. If you are staying with small kids it is good because the balcony rails are solid so they can't try to climb them. A great spot :)
