My partner and I just spent a few days there, it was such a great taste of paradise. The beautiful beach, great views and a very nice resort with a swim up bar! Felt very welcomed by the resort staff and they filled us in with activities to do while we were on the island. We didn't book a sea...

Firstly, Fitzroy island is beautiful. Put it on your list of places to see... but avoid a stay at the resort. Booking 2 nights as part of our anniversary getaway, we were excited to spend a few days revisiting island life. The resort looks appealing, but was terribly disappointing. Our room (studio) was a small, dank box. The mouldy smell...

The perfect Island resort getaway. Climate is sensational. 30 degrees most days with cooling sea breezes. Accommodation in the resort was excellent. Great bedding for a comfortable nights sleep. Self contained apartments were roomy if you want to spend time recouping from day and evening activities. 2 good walks. Nudey beach (Nudey by name only) is a easy 2o minute...

I booked a last minute 3 night stay on Fitzroy Island and I'm so glad I did! As the ferry approaches the jetty, you can already see coral and Sea life through the crystal clear waters! The snorkelling around the Island is great (you can walk in straight off the beach, or do a glass bottom boat tour), and I...

Very old dirty and out of date resort. Rooms are smelly and we had lots of bugs in room coming from the bathroom. Our phone in our room didn't even work when we tried to call the reception desk. The whole resort needs to be updated. The food options are average and costly. Of course you pay to snorkel and...

Needed a quick solo getaway from Melbourne prior to starting a new job and this was perfect. Very glad I upgraded to ocean view room (first floor 201) which I was extremely happy with; large and closest to central facilities. Downside is that I could hear room above so maybe 301 would have been better? All the staff were fabulous...

Catching the cat over is just the start of an awesome experience, you approach Fitzroy Island and just think yeah this is a bit of me. The view from your suite is just amazing, the staff are all happy, who wouldn't be working here ? Great place, great times.

I have a marketing background so I'm aware that the "first touch" is important. This is the second time we have been to Fitzroy Island so I "thought" I knew what to expect. When you reach the wharf where the ferry leaves from (and this is not easy to find if you haven't used their service before - we were...

We had a great day on Fitzroy. My daughter enjoyed the ocean trampoline and my husband enjoyed the glass bottom boat tour, and we all enjoyed the beautiful reef where we spent much of the day snorkeling. We saw a lot of fascinating wildlife including sea turtles, sting rays, and large monitors. I definitely recommend visiting Fitzroy if you are...

There is potential here but the surly staff, smell of the rooms and exorbitant prices drags it down to a disappointment. I do wish it could have been better. It needs a major change. While not part of the resort, beware the staff on the ferry too. There are some attitudesthere which questions why these people are in hospitality.
