Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great little apartment with a lovely vibe. When we checked in we were greeted with a sweet little apartment with gorgeous views of the topical gardens out the window. Awesome pool which was lovely to swim in, BBQ area, quiet and relaxing. A lot more spacious than we expected. It was clean and tidy, and comfortable (other than the bed, only reason for not giving 5 stars). The gas bottle was empty, we notified the office and it was replaced within hours. Great service and friendly. We requested a later check out with was not an issue. Nothing was too much trouble. Super happy to have spent 3 days here. Thank you

We really enjoyed our stay here. There was everything in the apartment that we could need really they proved washing up liquid and laundry detergent as well as dish cloths and shampoo/conditioner in the bathroom. All equipment was provided in the kitchen area, pots pans, crockery etc. All we had to buy was food really! The shower was powerful and plenty of hot water. Bed was very comfortable. Pool was clean and well maintained. Frank in the office was very helpful on check in and advised of tourist attractions that we should visit. Free underground parking and free laundry facilities. Walking distance to the main street with shops, Coles, cafes, restaurants etc and Four Mile Beach is just across the road. We really enjoyed our week here, we even got a laundry change mid stay, it was a home away from home!

I was delighted with every aspect of our Seascape Holiday stay at Tropic Sands. Fantastic value for money, wonderful service by the Seascape staff (thanks Sarah), streamline booking, wonderful communication, confirmation, information etc. I was super impressed the responses to my phone call during our stay, I rang to say that our Smoke Alarm in the unit was making the occasional chirp as if the batteries were getting low - the handyman was there in 15 minutes to sort the issue! The location was fabulous - only a few hundred metres from the main street where everything happens, and 200m from the beach in the other direction. We live in Cairns (only 60km away) and have been to Port many times, and we came with all that might need to ensure a simple stay in our self-contained unit - umbrellas, salt & pepper, oil, mossie coils, beach towels, shampoo & conditioner etc. - we could have left all of these at home because our unit had everything! The Free WiFi was just that - free - not like some places where they advertise Free WiFi but it doesn't apply to your room! There were 4 networks to choose from - simply select the one with the best signal. The laundry had 3 washing machines and 3 clothes dryers - no coins needed! The kitchen had everything that you needed - good sized fridge, all the appliances, crockery, utensils, cutlery you would need. The whole place was very clean. I could go on... I give this a 5 Star recommendation for anyone looking for an affordable, relaxing getaway at Port Douglas!

As I said in the title those are Gorgeous Apartments, I went there with my girlfriend it was a gift from my parents who came to Australia to visit us so after all the hostel that we tried in Australia OMG that was a great gift. This location is amazing the Apartment was all new new room, new shower everything was tidy, clean and beautiful. We felt at home. We had our little living room, our kitchen area, our balcony, a great shower and a supper bed and mattress. It is the PERFECT place to stay if you want to relax, feel at home with all the comfort possible. We loved it!!! Cheers, Simon

We stayed here for six nights. My partners grandparents own an apartment in Port Douglas but there was not enough room for us to sleep there so we pretty much only used Tropic Sands as a place to sleep. There was no 'Guest Book' provided and we got locked out of our room at one point as we had taken what we thought was a second door key but was actually the Laundry key. There was no way to tell the difference between the two keys unless you try them in the door. I'm not sure if Wifi was advertised but we picked up a 'Guest wifi' signal but had no password or info on this. Our room had two beds joined togethor and you could feel the edge of each mattress in the middle which was uncomfortable. On the first night the shower run out of hot water half way through washing my hair so had to use cold water to wash it out and my partner missed out on a shower. I understand they have smaller cylinders but it should be able to handle two showers. When the manager of our apartment was spoken to he said "no one else has complained and his plumber is on holiday for the week". So we has quick rinse offs for the rest of the week as we didn't want to run out again. The tv was on a lazy Susan type set up so it was made to turn around so you could watch it from the bed but with all the wires it wasn't possible. We used the pool twice which was very nice and no one else was there. The outdoor areas look newly redone and were very tidy. On our last night at 11pm an alarm went off in an adjacent unit for about 10min so i called the after hours number and the man that answered sounded like i had inconvenienced him but he did come down and sort it out. The complex was very quiet and clean but dated.

The apartment is pleasant with a small onsite pool and 5 mins walk from Port Douglas. Our visit came unstuck on our fourth night. The apartment came with about a 1/4 roll of toilet paper on the holder, which ran out on Saturday night. We didn't know the area, so called the number in the visitors guide in the room. The first number didn't answer and the second said out of service. I looked them up on the web and found a third number, which had an answering machine that put me onto a fourth number which didn't answer. Luckily some locals pointed us to a late night shop and crisis averted. I called the first number again on Sunday morning (which the Guest Information book in the room identifies as "Beaches Reception") and Beaches Reception answered. Only problem is that they do not look after Tropic Sands and were at a loss as to why their number was in the guest book. I kept trying numbers I found on the web until I found a person who grudgingly admitted they were in fact Tropic Sands reception. When I explained the tp situation, I was told that the room came with a minimum of necessities and if we ran out it was our problem. When I pointed out that an1/4 roll for a 7 night stay was hardly minimum I was told there was nothing they could do and they'd try and find us a roll on Monday. And they hang up. So if you're thinking of staying here, it's a nice enough place in amongst a large number of similar places. Bring your own tp and don't expect customer service.

Close to the main street of Port Douglas and just a short walk to the beach. The library is just around the corner and the markets at the end of that street. The best part of it was coming back to the lovely in-ground, heated swimming pool. The only down side is the bedroom has a big opening to the lounge so there is no chance of sleeping if the television is going in the lounge. Any problems were dealt with quickly be the repair men, such as the stove and tv The wi fi is only available beside the pool, not much use at night or in the rain.
