We stayed at the Newport in a one-bedroom apartment with another couple (who had the apartment next door) and our two year old daughter and we couldn't ask for a better location and service. The apartments initially surprised us with their generous size and cleanliness. The fenced veranda out the front also proved popular with many a meal eaten there while enjoying the beautiful weather.
The apartments are right on the main street but noise from pubs is efficiently blocked out by the doors and it is actually very quiet at night. The swimming beach was a leisurely 15-20 minute stroll (and even then it's because you tend to make stops at the shops and cafes which abound the street).
The pool and barbeque area were very clean and well kept and there was even oil, salt and pepper, etc provided for all to use!
The location is ideal for families with children as it is so central that you can go out for dinner but still be back home in a flash should the kids get tired and grumpy. And the Coles supermarket and pharmacy are right across the road which is also great.
Management was very efficient and we dealt a lot with Patrick whose dedication to customer service exceeded all expectations. One example was the shuttle to the airport that we booked through hotel reception for our last day - the shuttle was 5 minutes late and Patrick was already on the phone to the company (without being asked) to make sure everything was ok.
The free wireless internet was a great plus as well, as were the free to air movie channels.
We enjoyed Port Douglas and our accommodation there immensely!
