I was there with a group of friends, 6 of in total and stayed in Apartment 17, on level 2 which is the top floor. It had a fantastic view, especially from the roof-top balcony which is huge, with an outdoor table that fit 6 people. There is also another balcony which faced the pool. The apartment is light, well...

the location is fantastic the rooms were good; for six adults there was plenty of space; the apartments are about 30 years old, but have been renovated "serviced apartments" could use a bit of help; some detergent for the dishwasher or even just to handwash the dishes would be helpful (shampoo or hand soap just doesn't do a good job)...

The good: Great location. Walk to 4 mile beach and downtown Port Douglas. 1 block behind 4 mile beach. The bad: Older property; hasn't been updated in a decade or three. You'll be a little jealous of the neighbors. Bottom line: Don't book this unless you're serious about saving money. This place is not appropriate for honeymoon/special occasions. It is...
