Good location, nice pool area. Fire alarm and having management and fire dept walking through the apartment at 1am not fun. John (management) very helpful, kind and courteous...Carolyn (management), the opposite. A holiday is what you make it and we love Port Douglas but we wouldn't book Saltwater again.

Just spent 4 nights at Saltwater. John and Carolyne were great and the location of Saltwater was excellent. It was close to everything and the marina is a 5 minute walk away. However, we were in a 3 bedroom apartment and the layout was very poor. One of the bathrooms was the size of a small closet and the bathroom... More

Stayed in a three bedroom apartment. The place is quite nice but by no means luxury. Not sure that the floors are mopped thoroughly because we always had black feet. John is lovely but Carolyne is plain rude and abrupt. The noise from our apartment was ridiculous. The bin that collects rubbish at 6.30am every morning was so loud as... More

Thanks for your review and feedback. I apologise if you considered me to be abrupt and rude but can't recall any issues that would have prompted the comments. It certainly wasn't intended. As you can see by past reviews there has not been a comment like this before. Once again apologies. More

Had a awesome weekend here with family celebrating a 7th and 40th birthday. Lovely clean apartments. Only trouble was the over sensitive fire alarms which we encountered after cooking in the oven . Meal was spoilt by management and fire service visiting us.

Warac, Manager at Saltwater Luxury Apartments, responded to this review

Thanks for your great review. Your comment regarding the fire alarms is misleading. There was quite a lot of smoke in your apartment caused through cooking. The fire alarms are set to the standards of the Queensland Government and are there to save lives. They are not set to be too sensitive. A small inconvenience for yourself but a big... More

We loved our stay at Saltwater, it was perfect for our needs. We stayed in a 2BR apartment which was clean & comfortable. Loved the layout of the apartment which included a small laundry, generous living area, kitchen, and 2 bathrooms with the main bathroom having a huge spa and good storage space. Beds/linen were comfortable. The kids loved the... More

Thanks for your great review. We appreciate you taking the time to write the review. We have approached the local council on a regular basis but the leaf blowers are here to stay. It's only for a short time and 7am isn't too bad. At least everything is clean on the streets. We are surprised by the comments about street... More

Holiday makers are spoilt for choice in Port Douglas. I was finding it particularly difficult to settle on a place for 4 days as so many looked lovely. I decided to go with Saltwater Luxury Apartments because of all the great reviews and we required 2 bedrooms. Pro's: The location cannot be beaten - middle of Macrossan Street. We heard... More

These apartments are ideally located in central Port Douglas on Macrossan St so everything is within walking distance. John provided some very handy information on travelling up to the Daintree and Mossman Gorge, and also about local restaurants. Very clean, well equipped, made use of the BBQ. Beds were a little firmer than is our preference but any downsides were... More

Saltwater is without doubt the best location in Port Douglas. Walk five minutes in any direction and you're at the beach, the wharf, and all the restaurants and shops. If you don't intend to explore outside Port Douglas, you really don't need a vehicle. The complex itself is obviously very well run by the friendly on site managers as the... More
