We visited Shingley Beach resort for two nights last week. The location is lovely, opposite the Marina and in a quiet little pocket of Airlie. Our apartment was a three bedroom, 2 storey with beautiful views across the Marina and Whitsundays. The apartment itself is a little dated but really well maintained and clean. The only negative for us is...

It is wonderful to see you enjoyed your stay here and appreciated the location and views. Our front pool has a shallow area for kids but as it does drop off to a deeper section we understand what you mean about the kids so we will bring this point to management to see if there is a solution. We hope...

The resort presents well and is located in a quiet area. The furniture is older but still okay. We enjoyed the stroll to town. The path to Airlie Beach takes you through Abell Point Marina and Coral Sea Resort. Thank you for the chocolate marshmallow Santa's!

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We are pleased you enjoyed staying here and were able to appreciate the boardwalk- it certainly is a lovely scenic walk around the foreshore. (We are also glad you enjoyed the marshmallow Santas!) I hope we can see you again for another visit. Happy Travels!

We spent 4 nights at Shingley Beach Resort over Xmas. Great location if you like a quiet spot in Airlie over the road from a beautiful park and beach, which suited us. Room, pools and resort area was very clean. For those booking in the future, keep in mind that the 2 bedroom apartments do not have a main bedroom...

We are happy you enjoyed your Xmas at Shingley Beach Resort. We agree the location is excellent! Our website and all booking sites clearly state the room configurations which show the 2 Bedroom apartments have one large bathroom. We find most guests are happy with this so we do recommend booking a 2 Bedroom deluxe if you are wishing to...

This hotel is clean and of the same standard as the Waters Edge in Airlie but a on the cost level more affordable, the views are pleasant looking over a shared driveway at the moored yachts. Being in Shingley Beach was nicer than staying in Airlie as it was quieter. We moved 2 times as we were staying here for...

Nice setting, units are spacious but a little dated. I had a particular problem where the clothes dryer had a small electrical fire while I was in bed. Thankfully I smelled the smoke and turned it off quickly. Front desk is only open limited hours. Nice pool area. Bakery was never open early enough for our morning coffee.

Thank Roy S
Nigel P, General Manager at Shingley Beach Resort, responded to this review

Thank you for leaving feedback Roy- we appreciate your comments and apologise for the incident with the dryer. An electrician was immediately contacted to rectify this problem. We hope to see you again in the future.

We stayed for three days after a wonderful sailing adventure and were pleased with the views and layout of the apartment we shared. The fire alarm battery was low so beeped constantly. I reported this to the receptionist on the day we checked in but unfortunately no-one came to assist us and we ended up clambering up and taking it...
