“Fred and Antonia are the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

Had a wonderful 3-day weekend here in thanks to Fred and Antonia who are fantastic, welcoming hosts. My room didn't have a view but was spacious, comfortable and clean. I arrived late and found an envelope guiding me to my room. It was a very warm night and I was dead tired from a long flight from Sydney. I got to my room where there were lear instructions for activating the AC (much needed). The room cooled down in seconds and off to sleep I was. The next morning, Fred was up early and helped me book the best snorkel trip to the Great Barrier Reef, restaurant choices - all top notch and the best (and cheapest) way to see Daintree National Forest. the free Internet wasn't the fastest in the world but good enough.
I didn't take advantage of their pretty pool - I'd rather swim in the Ocean on 4 Mile beach.
It was such a pleasure to see Fred and Antonia each day. They clearly love Port Douglas and want you to as well. Mission accomplished.
BTW, this place is on the quiet side of Marcrossan Street and is steps from 4 Mile Beach. Don't stay in the big resorts that are away from town and the beach. Waste of money. Here you get the beach, all the best restaurants just down the street and the Marina just 15 min walk away.

A lovely boutique style hotel. Beautifully peaceful without children(much as we love them!)The bed was very comfortable and the rooms spacious and comfortably furnished leading out to a private patio.Having a well equipped kitchenette was a bonus if you did not want to take advantage of the many restaurants , all of which are within walking distance.The proprietors, Fred and Antonia, could not have been more helpful and charming .The hotel is tucked behind beautifully kept gardens and a small and peaceful pool area provides a tranquil relaxing area to unwind, while the beach is just a very short walk away. An ideal location for experiencing Port Douglas and all it has to offer

Room Tip: Choose a ground floor room if stairs are a problem as there are no lifts.

Staying at the Martinique was a new experience for us as we normally have our children with us, but not this time, and this was the perfect place to stay. Lovely rooms, a few mintues walk to the beach, and then a pool to have a dip in on your way back to your room. BBQs are supplied for guests to use, books and magazines also in the awesome courtyard. Close to restaraunts and shops, and the Sunday markets are a must. And Fred and Antonia were a lovely couple. Helpful if you needed it but also discreet and untoward. I would definately stay here again. Thank you for an awesome few days in Port Douglas :)

Room Tip: As there is no elevator, if you are elderly ask for a bottom room.

Amazing hotel great location two minutes from the beach. Fred and Antonia are a lovely couple very friendly pointing out places to see good restaurants in Port Douglas. Rooms very clean and spacious with a separate bedroom and small kitchen. Quicksilver boat ride to Great Barrier Reef and snorkelling are a must. Will definitely be back in Port Douglas and the Martinique .

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this small hotel steps from the beach. Rooms were lovely and there was a great sitting area just outside our room with a barbi that worked really well. Fresh tropical flowers made that area a wonderful area to hang out. Proprietors were helpful and very sweet. Great location near restaurants and wonderful birding opportunities

Very happy we found this accommodation in Port Douglas, as there is a lot to choose from. Spacious unit with all the amenities that one needs. The location is perfect, within a few minutes from the beach, which is the most beautiful and serene beach I have seen. And far enough away from the center of town not to be disturbed by late night parties. The unit could do with some updating and the bed was not the most comfortable I have slept in. The unit was not very clean with a lot of dust around. Fred and Antonia made up for the negatives though, they went out of their way to give helpful advice and information. Would stay here again.

Have stayed in Port Douglas on many previous occasions. This is the perfect choice for couples. Hosts are fantastic, location is perfect, no children. Nice pool but so close to the beach. Upper apartment great.
