We have never stayed in an Apartment before, we normally stay in b&bs or a hotel. But we loved this!
We had all the benefits of a hotel (reception, swimming pool etc) but with the spaciousness of an apartment. It was bigger than I expected, bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a large living room with dining area, an enormous balcony, a well equipped kitchen and utility room with washing machine/tumbler dryer. Plus extras such as washing powder, beach towels provided, basic consumables in the kitchen such as milk in the fridge, tea/coffee, dishwasher/washing up liquid. The bed was very comfortable and we received all the toiletries you would expect in a hotel bathroom. The apartment was modern, spacious and spotlessly clean.
The pool is narrow and long, ideal for lane swimming, though we just went in for a cool-off. Also just at the end of the road is Four Mile Beach, the main Port Douglas beach which is life-guarded where there is also a netted off swimming section at this time of year to protect against stingers (jelly fish).
Lorna on reception was very helpful in recommending restaurants and also booked us on a snorkelling trip. You are spoilt for choice for restaurants in Port Douglas. We didn't really eat in the apartment, other than cereal for breakfast!
We had a hire car which was stored in the basement garage, they give you a key for the electric up and over door.
I thought Latitute 16 Mowbray By the Sea were very classy apartments and would recommend it for anyone looking for quality accommodation in Port Douglas.
