Only stayed at the island's one and only resort to check out the place. If there's a chance in future, would stay another night or two as there's quite a number of things to cover on the island. For starters, the main Nudey Beach takes an hour to get to but word has it the walk is worth it. There...

Sorry but this is a bit of a tale. I have never written such a long review before but I felt I had to say something.This was such a mixed experience for us. The island is great and the snorkelling is very good. This was my choice as I wanted to be able to snorkel straight off the coral beach...

We thoroughly enjoyed a 2 night stay in a studio room. We choose not to upgrade due to inclement weather and the studio was pleasant, clean and sufficient for our needs - we weren't going to be in there the whole time anyway. We were very hesitant to book due to many negative reviews and contrary to them all we...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the resort for 4 days, we arrived quite early on the SunLover ferry, although we had to wait until 2pm for check in (which is the stated check in time) they took our bags and we were able to enjoy the pool, island look out walks and the turtle sanctuary until our room was...

Having bought an annual VIP Membership we thought to avail ourselves of our free night in an Ocean Suite and add another to really relax. We booked in early January for mid April. Walking into the ground floor suite we were intially impressed. Spacious, clean and with good appointments the first thing we really saw was our view.....or lack of...

A lovely relaxing stay. We got a super four night stay deal, which is certainly worth looking out for, it was good value. I have read other reports that bag the staff but my experience was positive. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only rude people we came across were a few Australians. Certainly not staff or international tourists....

Came over on a day trip. Headed to nudey beach - bit of a trek but worth it ( take water with you ) ..... Stunning and amazing .... Jurassic park meets the reef. Cool bar and nice views after a day snorkelling ( pretty colour coral / turtle and a great variety of fish ) ... I will return...

Me and my boyfriend spent one night at the resort. We both where very amazed by the room, very clean and the bathroom was really nice too! We did a little snorkeling and went around the nudie beach, secret garden and Foxy's bar. We finished our relaxing day with an amazing 100 dollar seafood plate at the restaurant by the...

Dear 272vendelas, I am so very sorry you became ill during your stay, this is not how we envisage any guests stay to come to an end. We were not made aware of your illness until after your departure from the resort and upon notification, we encouraged you to visit the hospital and have the exact cause of your illness...

It is not only the Island that makes the experience special, it is also the wonderful staff. As a local I visit Fitzroy island at least 3 times a year and it never disappoints. From the moment you hop on to the boat, where the staff is always friendly and open to give any hints and tips at all times,...

Arrived at the island to find there had been a mix up with our rooms, we were moved three times and each time not given an apology just told it was booking.coms fault. When we got into our rooms one of the doors to the outside wouldn't lock-when we asked if it could be fixed we were told we must...
