4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Marina Terraces was ideally situated for exploring the small town of Port Douglas. We were there in February and it was very humid, being the wet season. However, we had a penthouse apartment which had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, balcony and roof terrace with large table chairs and barbecue. The apartment was actually about to be refurbished when we left with the kitchen and bathrooms being updated. There was plenty of room in the apartment including washing machine and tumble drier.
We thought the apartment would be serviced every day but this was not standard practice and we had to ask for this to be done. However, the owned Tim, gladly obliged. There was a great little pool with BBQ area also.
Easy walking to all amenities and beach in Port Douglas.

Comfortable, clean and walking distance to Macrossan St and same to Four Mile Beach. Perfect location. We had Apartment 11 overlooking Davidson Street. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms with rooftop BBQ and outdoor setting. Also two other balconies. Comfortable beds. Full kitchen with everything you need and great little touches in the bathrooms of shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Apartments serviced every seven days and linen changed. Small pool in a garden setting with plenty of sun loungers. Beach towels provided. Sorry, I think we had quite a collection in our apartment by the end of our stay!! Weber bbqs and outdoor settings. Very helpful friendly owners who go out of their way to ensure you have a great holiday. An enjoyable stay and great value. Will definitely return.

This was our 4th visit to Port Douglas and we have stayed in some really nice places but this was the best by far. No it is not 5 star but your hosts are!!!!! Tim and Jason could not make you feel more welcome - sorry Michelle i did not have the pleasure of meeting you but Tim assures me you do exist.
Our unit was very clean and spacious and had everything we wanted. A lot of the units are getting renovated at the moment and they are to a very high standard. The pool and barbeque area are lovely with 2 webers and outdoor settings.
Just a 2 minute walk to Macrossan st one way and 2 min the other way takes you to 4 mile beach.
We heard about this place from word of mouth and thought it sounded too good to be true but it exceeded are expectations in every way.
Thankyou so much for an enjoyable stay and we hope to be back soon.

This hotel looked much better in it's photos than real life. It is still undergoing renovation. That said we were made very welcome and it was comfortable. Only down side was lots of steps to room and no lift

Room Tip: Make sure you can carry luggage upstairs

I want to keep this place quiet because its a great find in what is one of the most expensive towns in Australia. The hosts are friendly. The accomodation clean and ample. 1 min from Macrossan St so even the little one could hoof it. Round the corner from the Surf Club. Will be back, but it will probably be booked out! Thanks a million for a great stay.

Room Tip: Speak to the owners before you go, they will help out.
