Stayed here for a girls weekend in a two bedroom apartment. Very large and spacious with 2 bathrooms and full kitchen. Excellent view. Room was dated but clean and did the job for us. Light breakfast included which is only cereal and toast but good if you were on a budget. Only downfall was we were told prior to coming...

The good: The room was spacious with beautiful sea views. The jacuzzi was a great addition to the balcony and the room was a great size. The bad: After calling on three separate occasions to ask if the pool would be open, we were promised that it would be. Only to get there and be told it would be out...

Although the cyclone. I'd have expected some service, not none. Overpriced $350 per night. Unhelpful staff. Glass and rubbish, leaves and branches were left in the fire stairwells for all. Lifts were out of order, fire alarms in our rooms were on our side tables and no one on staff cared at all. It was a backpackers nightmare. However we...

The location is excellent. Really close to the hub of Airlie without the noise. Supermarket right across the road. Great views, and a nice big veranda to take in the views. The apartment (#47) was quite dated and could use a fresh coat of paint throughout, but it was big and well equipped for a self catered type holiday. The...

The hotel is about 250 m from the waters edge, so they need to change their name, or simply add the words "Not"!!!! The view is stunning, ignoring the noisy roads below. The room was good and customer service excellent. But we later found the Coral Sea Resort which was looked beautiful. But only had lunch there. So I think...

This little hotel wasn't what I expected, but I was very happy with it overall. Emma from reception was lovely, attentive and always happy to help. I was lucky enough to be place in one of the best rooms of the hotel, we absolutely loved the views and I am very grateful for that. The only couple of things I...

Stayed at Water's Edge Resort for two nights so that we could take a trip out to the Whitsundays. Our apartment was excellent with everything we could wish for, but what really impressed me was the view from our windows and terrace. I'll try to attach some photos. Breakfast was included and consisted of cereal, toast and tea/coffee. Under building...

My partner and I recently stayed here as a treat for my 21st birthday but we were slightly disappointed with our experience. I wouldn't call this place a resort, its more like a hotel. The location is fantastic, not even a 5 minute walk into town and the supermarket, and the views were great as well, (although we paid extra...
