We really enjoyed our week long stay! The apartment was clean and modern with a full kitchen and lovely balcony. Tim the owner and his staff were fantastic and very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The location is perfect for shopping and accessing popular activities like snorkeling, beach-going and fishing. The pool and free parking are a nice added touch. Definitely... More

As a base for Port Douglas activities, this is excellent. We Stayed for four nights; I loved being able to sit out on our private balcony early morning and listen to the bird-life as dawn breaks. Very clean room etc and well-equipped kitchen, but what is best about this place is the location. Just a couple of minutes walk to... More

We have stayed with Tim at Marrina Terraces for the past 4 or 5 years. We have always had a great stay, the rooms are always clean as a whistle and the value for what you get in port is 2nd to none. I recommend it to any one. Cheers Nick S

I booked this for 4 nights for my family back in Sep 14 on the strength of the reviews on Tripadvisor. But as you can see these reviews have deteriorated in recent months. It would appear that the owner has had to hand over management to a local management company (health reasons looking at prior reviews?) and this seems to... More

Thank you for your input. It is always helpful to get feed back like yours. Yes the place is slowly getting back on its feet after (as you rightly observed) personal issues especially health intervening. This is still a great complex, value for money and so well located. But I can do better, I acknowledge that. AND I WILL. And... More

We stayed for 2 nights last weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. Great value for money. Because of the pending cyclone many people had cancelled trips, so our room was upgraded. Clean and tidy, great decor. It was everything we needed. Great location, walking distance to everything in Port Douglas. Tim was really helpful and accommodating.

I contacted the management direct to book an apartment. He wouldn’t discount the price but promised me a nice room, and I must say it exceeded my expectations. The apartment looked like it had just been fully renovated, with floating floor in the living areas and quality carpet in the bedroom. There was a square balcony with full size table,... More

We booked the unit a day before arrival. $90 a night we thought was a great price for the location and being a self contained unit, though we knew not to expect the Hilton. On arrival the place was surprisingly better on the outside than expected, Tim(owner) didn't have our booking in the system and the reception was a bit... More

We stayed here in mid December as the first part of our holiday. We found our apartment to be spacious, clean, great value for money and in an ideal location - really close to both the beach and the restaurants. Tim the manager was extremely friendly and helpful and gave some great recommendations for the great barrier reef.

Immediate impression is the grounds & pool area need work, broken pots with dead plants is not an attractive look. Reception appalling, walk ways & stairs filthy, together with the smell of dogs & cigarettes - not at all appealing. Apartment good size, but not clean, appliances cheap & laughed when we could not find the oven, first apartment I... More

The beds were comfortable, Crisp linen and fluffy towels were appreciated as was the big bathroom and separate toilet.. fans and air conditioning worked. Lots of pots crocs and glassware in the kitchen... More
