We stayed here for our nephew's wedding. Our apartment was managed by Latitude 16, which is trading under bankruptcy administration, and failed to pass on necessary information, passed on wrong information and Security was not able to be contacted when needed. The apartment was three star but adequate, in a very pleasant setting ideally placed for both the shops and... More

We stayed at unit 13 which was not satisfactory. The outlet in the shower had no cover resulting in my foot slipping into the drain causing damage to the foot and a visit to the doctor. As I am 80 years of age and have been on pain killers which made our 6 week stay very unpleasant.As a result of... More

All apartments have a tropical theme design matching to the surroundings right around. For the self contained a well equipped kitchen / laundry is present. The apartment block is neat, clean and well maintained throughout. Ones privacy is underlined where needed with tropical gardens right around, well shielded from adjoined dwellings. If the sea is choppy or stingers are present... More

We had a very pleasant stay although the breakfasts were very disappointing. No fruit in sight and overall it was very unimaginative. What a shame when Queensland must be bursting with fruit. Otherwise a very good stay and the apartments were well equipped.

Greetings Readers, this year’s trip to Port Douglas has been a low budget impromptu affair for Salty and Missus Croc. About a month ago Missus Croc was empowered to seek her destiny in an alternate career path as an enhanced leisure consumer. This left us both a bit glum and in need of some tropical sun. So we booked a... More

Stayed here for a week over Easter and we were really really happy with this accommodation. It is located within 2mins to the main street and 2 mins to four mile beach. Modern facilities and comfy bed! Only negative is that we never got clean towels but there are free laundry facilities. Would recommend and Defo stay there again!

Please note this review is for Unit 2 at Tropic Sands which I booked directly with the owner over their internet site. If you wish to stay it would be wise to deal directly with Tropic Sands as we found the Manager extremely helpful. Tropic Sands is well located close to shops, beach and the Marina and ideal for couples.... More

We stayed in a quiet back apartment with a private balcony. The bathroom is due for renovation, and the fridge and stove look tired, but everything else was smart and clean. It is classified a 4 star venue, but is more like 3 star, with no manager on site. This apartment had a new large TV. If you can negotiate... More

The apartment was clean and well presented. There was plenty of crockery and cutlery. The TV was new and there was a DVD player. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach, town etc. Would definitely stay there again

The apartment was spotlessly clean, and had everything we needed. Swimming pool was on the small side but heated enough to take the edge off, we had a dip every day and mostly had it to ourselves. A pleasant walk to shops and restaurants, only needed the car for day trips. Reception was not manned but did not worry us,... More
