... but our first for five years. We had a jacuzzi apartment for two which would be big enough to live in permanently. Excellent walk-in shower as well as the tub. The ground floor rooms are literally feet from the very accessible pool, but sheltered from it. They seem no longer to do cooked breakfasts, but the cold buffet is excellent. WiFi is free via hotspots but we could only make it work on our front patio and not within the apartment. There's under-cover off-road parking and a guest laundry.
The location would be hard to beat within Port Douglas, a short walk from the main street, and although we were there at a quiet point in the season I'm sure it's far enough away not be disturbed by the bars and restaurants. Ten-minute walk to the marina and the fantastic Sunday market, factoring in the heat and humidity.
It's calm and restful and we will definitely stay here if we visit PD again, although even allowing for it being out of season in late March the town as a whole didn't seem to be doing as well as five years ago, with many more empty units.
