Martinique on Macrossan
Ranked #15 of 42 Hotels in Port Douglas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Back in Melbourne for a month and are still talking about how much we enjoyed our week in Port Douglas and how happy we were to stay at the Martinique. The hosts, Antonia and Fred, did every thing possible to make you feel welcome and they gave very helpful advice with tours. They really work hard and try their best to make the Martinique the charming place it is to stay.
The hotel is all one-bedroom apartments on three floors, and very quiet and peaceful. The pool is small but beautifully warm, and the BBQ area has lovely flowers decorating each table which make it a relaxing place to sit and have a glass of wine.
As everyone says, the location is fantastic, close to the beach, and shopping and restaurants are an easy stroll away.
Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Let Antonia and Fred know what your priorities are as the lower and top floors each have something d...

We recently spent 5 nights here. The location is wonderful - the four mile beach is a few minutes away and so are the cafes and restaurants in Macrossan St. The hosts are warm and friendly and have lots of great local tips.

We are just finishing a perfect holiday at Martinique on Macrossan, and I can't think of anything negative to say. The location is very close to the beach and the restaurant / shopping strip, and is calm and peaceful. The apartment, and the outdoor area, are lovely. Most memorable are the charming and kind hosts, who gave us such helpful advice about what to do here, they made a big difference to the enjoyment of our holiday. Our thanks to them both.

Writing this on our last night at Martinique - what an amazing stay!

Everything from the style and character of the room to the happy and helpful hosts have made this such a wonderful holiday.

We've been in Port Douglas for a wedding, and we've seen the places our friends are staying at. We can happily say that we made the right choice.

Perfectly located - on Macrossan but not in the noisy centre, nights have been quiet but you're close enough to stroll to the restaurants and bars if you want that action. And the beach is a stone's throw away.

The room feels comfortable and has character. Love the tropical feeling! The bathroom is like a large wetroom which I initially thought was strange but after one shower I was sold! Our outside patio is great for relaxing (and drying those bathers) and feels secluded with the lush foliage. Same goes for the pool. The tropical trees make you feel like you're in a hidden lagoon.

Fred and Antonia always greet you with a smile - you can see how happy they are to entertain. And seeing Antonia change the tropical flowers near the entrance pond just makes you realise that it's the little things that add so much atmosphere.

I can't give Martinique enough praise. If you're interested in location without the havoc, a beach at your doorstep and warm, welcoming cheer, then Martinique on Macrossan is perfect for you - it has been for us,

Room Tip: We requested a ground floor for the patio and because there's no lift. Glad we did, it made comi...

My wife and I have stayed here twice now. Last November and just this May past. Both times we were attending sporting events located on 4 mile beach. The great location and wonderful interest in our activities by Fred & Antonio really make this place our first choice when we come to Port..Value for money is hard to beat. Thanks Fred & Antoni, we will be back.

Room Tip: Personally I like the higher level, but, you must like steps then and I do.

Great stay at Martinique for 6 nights. Our hosts were very helpful, and informative. Close to the beach and near restaurants. Quiet at night.There was music on lots of nights at the venues in Port Douglas.
So much to see and do in the area and the right place to be for boat trips and visits to the reef.
Supermarket just 1 block away. Room was comfortable as was the bed, enough space for suitcases and a small balcony to sit out as well. Hosts can book tours for you so no need to phone around or try to figure out which one would suit you the best.
We ate at some great restaurants in the area as well as the pubs and social clubs.
Fresh fish is always fantastic. Sunday market worth a visit too. Highly recommended to stay at.

Room Tip: Stairs to floors 1 and 2. However very quiet at night.

Very good accommodation and right on the main street. Very close to the beach and to restaurants in town.The hosts are very friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be that it is a bit dark inside. Stronger light globes would fix that as there is no room for more windows.
