Just spent 4 wonderful days in the penthouse at Beaches - apartment 321. Best apartment and location in Port Douglas. Modern and spacious 3 bedroom apartment literally 50 metres from the beach. Great cafe downstairs and the surf club restaurant only 50 metres away. The 6 of us loved it and will be back for sure!

We stayed in apartment 306 after finding it online. It was a breeze to book and the place was immaculate. Everything is new, and it felt really fancy for an apartment...we felt so spoilt, it was like staying in a hotel.

While staying on the ground floor doesn't provide direct ocean views, we didn't have to clamber down any stairs every time we went out, and we had the pool right outside our room – the access was really good. The beach was just across the road, so we walked over there quite a lot.

When we were at the apartment, we spent most of our time on the balcony. We bought food from the local supermarket, cooked dinner in the apartment and ate on the balcony – peaceful and intimate. Definitely a holiday I would like to book again!

It's worth noting that to book the apartments in Beaches, you need to go to the direct person/website to book the apartment you're after. For apartment 306, go to www.beachaccommodationportdouglas.com.au – there's photos of the apartment on there too. We found that not all of them are renovated or look the same, so it's worth looking into before booking!

Room Tip: Apartment 306 is newly renovated – beautiful room.

Recently stayed at Beaches port Douglas what a great location right opposite the Beach but it stopped there we were very dissapointed the the units especially Unit 312 it needed an upgrade it was very shabby, every dining room chair was ripped or torn, dirty glasses and plates in the cupboard, hoover did not work and could do with more storage in main bedroom ensuite bathroom the owners need to spend a bit of money to upgrade it. The surrounds of the units could do with some T.L.C and the pool area could do with some more umbrella's. We all enjoyed our stay but would probably not stay there again due to the state of the units.

BEACHES ON the Esplanade is THE place if you want to spend a holiday with your family in Port Douglas.
My husband and I and our 16 month triplets were very happy there. The tripos had a whole enclosed veranda to themselves for their toys and it overlooked the heated pool so we could take them out any time we felt like a swim. The sea was across the road and oh! so convenient as was the café 3 door next almost where we lazed in the mornings with our babies having brekky.
The apartment was spacious, comfortable without being too flashy that we did not feel that the kiddos were uncomfortable. The bedrooms were nice and big and the master bedroom was lovely with large door like windows bringing the morning sun in.
the kitchen was well stocked except that I would have loved to have a couple of baking trays in there - but we managed. Excellent location - short walk to the CBD and the happening area. We spent hours on the beach with our babies and then a short walk back to the apartment. Mossman Gorge only 7kms away and Daintree forest with Cairns being a 45 mts drive.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean view suite which we found very spacious and clean. Beaches is in the best location in Port Douglas right opposite 4 mile beach wre the life savers tower is.
It's only a short walk to the main street where most of the restaurants and shops are. There is also a small cafe on the corner near the reception which has excellant food.
Lesley and the staff were all very helpful.
We look forward to staying here again in the near future.

Room Tip: High floors with ocean view

we stayed here at the last minute, just went by pictures on the internet room 313 was in need of some renovation, especially the kitchen, also needing new dining chairs which was mentioned to us on arrival at the property that they had been ordered. bathrooms were old but clean,beds and lounge not comfortable and terrible pillows, also had family staying in room 320 they had a better kitchen but said the same about the beds, fridge not very cold.pool too hot. not enough bins around the premises. on the plus side the location was excellent but the place was definitely in need of renovation. i recommend booking a renovated room!
