“Foremost Accomodation In Port Douglas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The Martinique is a gorgeous boutique hotel located at the Four Mile Beach end of Macrossan Street.

Being the quieter end of town, it suited us perfectly, yet was only a short stroll to the shops and restaurants.

Each apartment is well appointed, with everything you need to ensure a comfortable stay.

We were lucky enough to have an apartment which overlooked the pool, which is situated at the back of the hotel and is surrounded by lush foliage. A bonus for us......the pool was not covered in shade, like some hotels we have been too. It would get a minimum of 5 or 6 hours sunshine a day.

For those that like cooking, each apartment has a kitchenette and there is a BBQ in the courtyard for your use.

Managers Fred and Antonia, are a wealth of knowledge and are more than happy to advise you on the best places to visit, eat and relax on your stay.

We have no hesitation in booking the Martinique for our next holiday.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

perfect location to stroll to the beach or up the road to shops and cafes. Not your usual square box hotel room - lovely tiled floors and plantation shutters give the rooms a tropical feel. We enjoyed our stay but were a bit disappointed at first as our downstairs room was a bit dark and we didn't get any sun on our deck (was expecting something more like the photos on the website). However the lush greenery outside would be wonderful and cooling on a hot day. The kitchen and bathroom could probably do with an update at some stage as are getting a little tired (i.e. the cutlery draw front kept popping off) but the friendly hosts and beautiful Port Douglas itself made up for it. We didn't get any traffic noise however I'm a light sleeper and did notice an electronic noise coming from the speaker/vent in the bedroom which meant I had to sleep with earplugs - think it was an intercom or alarm system but my husband didn't notice it. We would stay again but would request an upstairs room towards the back of the property.

Room Tip: as per other reviewers, the upstairs rooms would be lighter and the decks sunnier.

We arrived early having got an overnight flight from Perth and were delighted when Fred was able to swap our apartment so that we were able to grab a couple of hours sleep at 830 in the morning, it made a real difference to us. Also sensible advise on which GBR trips would suit us. Apartments are roomy and well equipped, clean and comfortable. It's an excellent location too. Highly recommended.

The perfect place to stay in The Port. This was our third stay at Martinique. The position of Martinique is excellent. Close to the most amazing beach, delicious restaurants, and shopping. Fred and Antonia are wonderful hosts, who take the role of making their guests comfortable, seriously. The room was fresh and clean and well appointed. It was quiet and comfortable. The pool was heated and a wonderful place to relax away from the heat.

Not only is the location ( at the beach end of Macrossan St) ideal, the service from Fred and Antonia is second to none. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable sums it up. The point of difference with other similar places we have stayed is that the décor is bright and quirky, not boring and bland. When we return we’ll be requesting a room on the top floor to ensure more light and more sun on the balcony. I would agree with other reviewers that the landscaping and gardens are beautiful but that the pool area is a trifle shady for the ‘winter’ months.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor would be lighter.

We had a very pleasant 3 night stay at Martinique. The resort is very well kept and looked after and in the perfect location. The rooms are tidy and well equipped with everything you will need. Fred was extremely friendly and helpful, making some great recommendations of places to eat in town and places to visit on our drive to Cape Tribulation. The only fault we found being located on the bottom floor was that our room was quite dark so if possible I would suggest requesting a room upstairs.

Couldn't fault this jewel in Port Douglas. Close to beach and restaurants. Friendly hosts. Rooms beautifully appointed and clean. Lovely quiet pool area perfect for relaxing after a day out. Quite a shady area but the pool is heated. Thanks Fred & Antonia - we will definitely be back!
