Martinique on Macrossan
Ranked #15 of 42 Hotels in Port Douglas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 September 2017

We visited Port Douglas September 2017. Martinique on Macrossan is a lovely, quaint place that is in a great location. The property is owned by a husband and wife team and they are very attentive and helpful. The rooms are spacious and have a kitchenette, a dining table and a small living room in addition to the bedroom/bathroom. As far as I could tell, all the rooms had a balcony which was equipped with a table and chairs and a laundry drying rack.

2 complaints that we had, which may not be an issue for everyone, is that there is no elevator as all rooms open to the outside. So we had to carry our heavy 50 lb luggage up to the 3rd floor. And then while the property did have free wifi, we could rarely get it to connect with good enough reception to actually use the internet.

The property has a really pretty swimming pool that is open 24/7 for adults. They also have beach chairs that you can grab to carry down to the beach with you. The beach was nice, but on the days we were there it was super windy with fairly large waves. We had a great time playing in the ocean, but realize that big waves aren't for everyone. I can't speak to how the beach usually is, or if what we encountered was normal for this area.

We booked a Great Barrier Reef excursion through Calypso and they picked us up right in the front of our hotel, which was great!

Macrossan is the main street in Port Douglas. When you walk out of Martinique, if you go left, you'll be about a 2 min walk from the beach. If you walk right, you'll immediately be at LOTS of shops and restaurants! About a 10 min walk past all the stores and restaurants will get you to a Coles (grocery store) which is great for stocking your kitchenette.

Room Tip: Ask for lower level, if you have large luggage, as there is no elevator

A lovely place to stay. Great rooms and balcony, spacious and spotlessly clean. Everything you could need. Well equipped kitchenette. So central but so quiet, right by the beautiful beach and the town. Lovely owners. Would love to return.

Close to the city centre, this accommodation is well situated to the town and just a one minute walk to the beach.
Staff are very friendly and the rooms are quite lovey and well appointed. Parking is off-street and under cover.

We have just spent 10 days in Port Douglas staying at the Martinique. Fred and Antonia are really lovely and helpful and offer helpful tips on which tours to book. The apartments are clean, well maintained, self contained and offer all that you would require. There is a short 2 min walk to 4 Mile Beach at the end of the street and Fred & Antonia provide fold up chairs to make sitting at the beach comfortable. The property is right on Macrossan St so its an easy walk to shops and restaurants. The only minor down side, is noise which floats across from the carpark next door, generally around 10 pm at night when the restaurant in the next door building throws empty bottles into the bins, and early morning garbage trucks collecting bins in the morning. Shutting the balcony door helps. Maybe the restaurant could be asked to either move the bins to the other side of the car park, collect full bins at a later time, or buffer the car park wall to help resolve this?

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back of the property may be quieter, in terms of buffering from carpark noise.
