Reviewed May 5, 2008

I have just read some of the bad reviews for these apartments and feel that the new management must have improved things considerably, because we had no problems at all and found the service attention as good as any. Everything was very clean, although the knives were blunt, and the bed was a little tired.
But we felt the location was pretty good for us, we could walk to 4 mile beach in 3 or 4 minutes, and it took only 10 minutwe to walk to the Marina, or the cafes & supermarkets on Macrossan Street.
The lady manager was very helpful to us in booking a reef trip, and advising about the variety of restaurants around about.
Our room was large, the bathroom spacious, and equipment levels were pretty good: we had a washing machine & dryer in our bathroom. The location was quiet, we didn't have any late night disturbance. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Port Douglas Coral Apartments is well positioned about 10 minutes walk from McCrossan Street and 250 metres from 4 Mile Beach. We arrived after the office had closed to find a welcoming letter waiting, then found our apartment beautifully presented with the air-conditioning on and a couple of low lights made for a pleasant atmosphere. A large packet of Aussie Atherton plunger coffee was unexpected and most enjoyable, and the selection of teas included Daintree tea as well.

These apartments are very spacious and include a full laundry in the bathroom. There’s a dining table and a table and chairs on the balcony too. We could not fault the apartment. A bonus is the covered car-parking so no oven hot car to get into. The pool is solar-heated, in a lovely setting, and easily big enough for the 23 apartments.

Apartments facing the main road are a little noisy with doors and windows open but with double glazing quiet when closed. Apartments facing away from the main road would be quieter and worth asking for…there is a small extra cost for these pool-view units.

Management here is friendly and were eager to ensure our stay was a happy one. We will be staying here again.

The Coral apartments at Latitude 16 were great. Nice little kitchen and bathroom with a nice balcony with table and chairs to have meals on. Perfect for 3 people. Only 10min walk into town. Beach was only a 400m walk so super close!
The management staff were new I think and really lovely and went out of their way to be helpful. Perfect for a lower budget.

There are SO many places to stay in Port Douglas - don't stay here! The rooms are small, low-ceilinged, dark and smelly. The dishes in the cupboards were covered in ants, the managers (who live there but you have trouble ever finding help) were rude and disinterested. The whole place feels rundown and sad. There are lots of places in PD that are fresh and friendly and clean - and for about the same money. Don't do it! You'll be in paradise and feel like you're living on a housing estate.

I have taken over management of Port Douglas Coral Apartments at the begining of June 2007. As you can see by your most recent reviewer, I have managed to turn the property around, and manage to clean up and attend all to many small details here that I believe make a huge difference to the property!
Lets hope we have many more satisfied guests who will also send in there positive reviews! Thanks

The apartment we stayed in was very smelly and the bathroom had mould all over the place. There were ants everywhere. The swimmingpool is very small and the cushions for the sun chairs were wet because they left them out all the time. (sprinklers) When we talked to the manager about it she became very rude. We wanted our money back but there was no way. I'll save you the words she said to us. We just wanted a nice holiday. We contacted wotif, we booked with them, and even they were treated badley. Wotif did gave us our money back. We staid in the Radison treetops for the rest of the holiday and that was great and only $10 more per night including a great breakfast!

Hi, as I said in my previous response to another "bad" comment about the property.
We have had a change in management, and addressed these issues.
Nice fresh smelling rooms, and very friendly and helpful management available 10 hours a day to assist with any requests! Verified again by your most recent writer, and hopefully many to come! Thanks Amura blair

A lovely spot, within walking distance to town, the beach and a lot of great restaurants. I love the idea of a holiday aparment. Sure, we had to provide our own supplies after the first day but at $110 AUD/night with the 7th night free, our stay was perfect. Yes, the pool is small but just right for that refreshing dip or for having a drink. The best thing was having a washer and dryer so we didn't have to search for a laundromat. Trevor and Vivian are gracious hosts and very helpful with booking tours. Don't miss Breakfast with the Birds!!
