We stayed for three nights over Christmas 2009. As regular visitors to Port these are the best apartments we have experienced in the past 10 years. Ideally suited for couples and families with older (teenage) children. Apartments are well appointed and spacious, comfortable furniture and the main bedroom with spa bathroom is large. Kitchen is fully equipped with high quality... More

We stayed at Saltwater Luxury Apartments in Port Douglas for four nights before heading to Tassie for Xmas. The apartments are right in the middle of Macrossan Street in the heart of Port Douglas. This means its an easy walk to the beach and to the marina - and the great restaurants and pubs in between. The apartments come with... More

We loved staying here. We were in Port Douglas for a wedding, so we compared accommodation among all the other guests and we definitely thought ours was the best value. The pool was lovely. We stayed here for 8 days, but we extended our stay and moved rooms during that time (from room 16 to room 3). The second room... More

We moved to these apartments after being dissapointed with Reflections and what a wise choice! We stayed in the penthouse apartment (last min deal!) which has beautiful views of the mountains (probably one of the only hotels to have views from this street?) and a huge balcony. The rooms were spotlessly clean with the wow factor of a beautiful bathroom... More

Very nice appartments, must have been recently refurbished. We stayed in two bedroom apartment and had two bathrooms that were very clean and fresh. Actually, one of the bathrooms were IN the master bedroom which is a little bit strange but it worked out. There was also a very stylish jacussi in the master bedroom with black granite and black...

Saltwater Apartments were the perfect "home away from home" for our Port Douglas holiday. The rooms were extremely comfortable and spacious, and very quiet despite the superb mid-Macrossan Street location (directly across from the Coles supermarket, and within easy walking distance of 4 Mile Beach and the Marina departure point for the reef cruises). The pool area was quiet and... More

I've stayed in quite a few of the hotels and apartments in Port over the years, but Saltwater is definitely the best so far! We stayed in a 2-bed penthouse which was just perfect. The whole place is spotlessly clean and well maintained. I often find apartments suffer from worn towels and kitchen utensils in need of replacement, but this... More

We have been coming to Saltwater for 4-5 weeks each year ever since it was built for our winter escape from the cold weather down south. It is our home away from home because of its great location, its excellent facilities and the friendly service by John and Carolyne. Restaurants and shops, the beach and the Marina are all within...

Traveled with my daughter who has been living in Scotland for 2 years,wanted a little break to spend some time with her. I am very fussy with hotels etc,so i tend to review trip advisor before booking. I was extremely impressed... More

Located right in centre of Macrossan so ideal to walk out for dinner. John and Carolyne were very helpful hosts. Apartment was spacious, well equipped and very clean. Only disappointment was balcony which really had no view. Pool was also quite cool in temperature (but we thought all the pools were cold in Oz!) Definitely would recommend.
