I stayed at Saltwater Luxury Apartments and was amazed at the fantastic location and service I received. There is nowhere better to stay in Port Douglas than right in the heart of Macrossan Street where Saltwater is located. Just across the road was a supermarket where we could purchase food to cook in the well equipped kitchen. I couldn't fault... More

We stayed for 5 night, the apartment was perfect with everything that we could possibly need included. It was clean and modern, and the pool was heated just what we were looking for. The location is excellent and the hosts are great, they provided a tour booking service free of charge with un-biased advice. They made our holiday too easy.... More

We stayed 6 nights in 3 bed apartment on Grant St end. Bottle collections from surrounding cafes was very noisy every morning around 6am. We expected that we would get our towels changed at least once during our stay. 4 wet bath towels and 4 beach towels from 4 adults are expected to dry on two 45cm towel rails. Result... More

Thank you for your review. As we tried to explain to these guests during their stay and at departure Saltwater Luxury Apartments are non serviced holiday apartments [as stated in several places on our website & all affiliated ones] therefore a change of linen is not made unless the stay is over 7 nights. The apartments are each equiped with... More

We had a great week at Saltwater to celebrate my 60th birthday. John and Cariolyne were very welcoming and helpful, advising us on the best tours and making the bookings for us. They also advised us on local restaurants, and consequently we ate very well. While the building is in the centre of Port Douglas, the apartment itself was quiet... More

We stayed 6 nights at Saltwater this month and would reccomend it to others. The hosts John and Caroline were very friendly and helpful and the apartment itself was beautifully decorated and spotless. We stayed in the 3 bedroom penthouse as there were 4 of us for the first 3 days and Caroline and john allowed us to stay on... More

The apartment was literally right in the centre of everything in Port Douglas, no need for taxis or shuttle buses for evening dining. Unlike many of the apartments in Port Douglas it is really spacious, clean and modern. The managers are constantly available to assist and always seem to be working hard to keep up the high standard. We had... More

The management could not have been more helpful. The location is great in the middle of town. The apartments are spacious and spotlessly clean They have all the comforts of home and you could not ask for more.

We spent 11 nights in Saltwater with our 2 year old son. The location was excellent, close to everything within Port Douglas. No need for hiring a car. We had choice of a 2 bedroom or 2 bedroom ultra but we were unexpectedly upgraded to a 3 bedroom due to a broken fridge in the ultra. Cannot find fault with... More

These apartments are in a great location, lovley decor and very clean. The swimming pool area is one of the best we've come across. We couldn't fault anything about our stay. Our hosts were very helpful and courteous and made our stay very comfortable. We certainly had a lovely time there and wouldn't hesitate to recommend these apartments to anyone... More

We wanted to treat ourselves and booked here after reading the reviews. The manager is very nice but when he unlocked the door to our apartment we were hit by the most unpleasant dank, stale smell. It took two days of the doors being wide open constantly for the smell to be tolerable. Not what was expected when you are... More

Thank you for your review. We are responding as we were completely unaware of any problem whatsoever with the apartment. We had no complaint from these people when they were in house nor when they departed which is disappointing from our perspective as we were unable to rectify any problem that there may have been . We have never had... More
