“Great Holiday Accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Fantastic holiday, situated only about 30 metres from the sandy beach, and overlooking the ocean, One of the great places to stay in Port Douglas. Well equipped accommodation and helpful staff. A short easy walk into town

Room Tip: Choose an upper room for a better view of the ocean

This was a great spot to stay. Nice and roomy apartment. Mostly loved the view from our balcony, the beach and the pool. It was a great location as we didn't need a car because we could walk to everything. Helpful staff that made us feel welcome.

Room Tip: A unit with beach views make it a special trip. Maybe downstairs if you have a pram.

This is our 8th stay here. The location is one of the best in port Douglas which is one of the main reasons we stay here. Unfortunately the rooms are getting very tired and in desperate need of renovations.
Cleaning has also dropped below standard.
Pool could be cooler!!
We think that they are trying to cut costs but in the long run it will cost them more with lost business. Next year we may be looking elsewhere unless there is improvement.
Value for money is dropping.

We enjoyed a most comfortable and relaxing stay at Beaches Apartments and thought the management team provided outstanding customer service. We absolutely loved our room overlooking the pool and beach front, and particularly enjoyed the close proximity of the Beaches Cafe and the wonderful coffee they served.

A great holiday for me is one with as little choice and as little hassle as possible. At Beaches my daily decisions were: breakfast in the room or at the cafe downstairs, go to the pool or the beach across the road, dinner across the road at the slsc or a short work into the heart or town. It was great.

Great location, accommodation in very average condition, self contained kitchen left in poor condition with dirty crockery and utensils, leaky laundry in apartment constantl slip hazard. Basically the apartment needed some TLC considering the cost.
Pros : pool, outlook, proximity to main street, beach across road, off street parking, reasonably quiet.

Room Tip: If you don't need luxury then perfect apartment for coastal stay

My wife and I have just returned from Port Douglas after a two week stay at Beaches. It is the second year in a row we have stayed there and the complex is great. You are directly opposite the patrolled beach, takes about 30 seconds from the pool to the beach. All the rooms are are set around the pool. I noticed all the beach goers departing looking into our complex wishing they were on the other side of the gate in our pool. The rooms are great. We were in room 320 on the 1st level. The rooms have a full good size kitchen with great entertaining space. Our room had two large bedrooms. The whole apartment looked over both the pool and the ocean. We have four boys aged 9, 8, 7 & 3 and we fitted in comfortably. The management are fantastic. I have dealt with Lesley who could not be more helpful. Beaches, best beach holiday in Australia
