Had first stayed at Beaches about 7 years ago as a childless (younger!) couple, but this time with two young kids, after searching for something different, we decided we'd return. So glad we did. With kids this time, it confirmed to us that Beaches has the best all-round location in Port Douglas, bar none. Across the road from the ocean swimming enclosure (and patrolled beach). Across the road from the laid-back licenced surf living club and bistro (with playground for the kids), a flat 5 min walk into the centre of town, and off any main roads as well, so its nice and quiet in the evenings.
Apartments were spacious and well featured. Cable TV, ceiling fans and AC in all rooms, fully featured kitchen, polishing floors, master bathroom with spa (although ours was not working at the time), laundry in the 2nd bathroom. 2nd TV in master bedroom, and separate dining area too. Very quiet rooms - we did not hear a thing from the next door neighbours at any time, nor any noise out on the street at all.
Enjoyed the pool and deck each day, and utilised the Wi-fi and bbq area on several occasions. Friendly staff too.
This is not a criticism but did notice that perhaps the rooms could be due for some work in the next few years - re decor, bathrooms and some of the trim around the rooms. Don't think anything has been done to them since they were built, which is a credit to them, because I think they are nearly 20 years old, but our bathrooms were looking just a little tired.
Still, if we come back to "Port", it will be hard to go past this place as an all-round package.
