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... More

Stayed for a week in apartment 306. Newly refurbished. Simply stunning interior design. Couldn't believe we found the place. Have just enjoyed a wonderful stay. Close to beach and shops. Beach right across the road Perfect location. Highly recommended.

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... More

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... More

I stayed here with my sister and her daughter and was upgraded to an ocean view room. The location is fantastic, right on the beach near the lifesaver tower and only a short stroll to the main street. Unfortunately the apartment was dated and we had an issue with cockroaches. We also requested two queen beds, but the second bedroom... More

We found this apartment through a friend who stayed there. They gave us a website: beachaccommodationportdouglas.com.au The website was pretty basic but showed great pictures of what the apartment looked like. That, plus looking at the Tripadvisor reviews, really helped us in selecting where we wanted to stay. We stayed at Beaches over 10 years ago and new that the... More
