Unfortunately during our stay the pool was being renovated. You only have one option for breakfast on the island that you have to book in for so definitely byo food if you can. The island itself is so beautiful but the resort is having a much needed renovation, I suggest waiting till it’s done to get a better experience and definitely try get a room with a kitchen and bring some food from the the main land and there aren’t a lot of eating options and the general store is pricey

The snorkelling was great, saw turtles and large range of fish and coral. All seen by swimming off the beach. Turtle rehab ran by Rita was great. Condition of room and pool were average need maintaining. Staff were friendly but could be more helpful they did not seem to want to improve your stay. Beaches were great.

The Barrier Reef is right there. We enjoyed kayaking and the glass bottom boat. The walks in the rainforest were wonderful. Limited food options but all the meals we had were excellent.

Love Fitzroy Island! Definitely worth staying a few nights rather than a day trip! The resort is fantastic would definitely recommend, our room in the beach cabin was the best location, I feel the room needs a few maintenance things fixed (shower leaked, room smelled a bit mouldy, tap was not connected and fell off each time etc just general wear and tear, the previous guest must have had fish in the fridge so anything we put in there smelled of fish) BUT despite the maintenance issues the room was clean would 100% stay again or recommend for people to stay) Tried both restaurants for dinner and had breaky each day, both were equally as good! The only thing I was a but disappointed in was the amount of rubbish around the grounds and on the beach etc. they reallllly need more rubbish bins around especially have so many people passing through each day not just resort guests

Nice view, clean room. Restaurant booking is a bit disappointing and the other buffet option wasn’t as good as we thought.

Covid affect
It was during a COVID spike and were obviously understaffed. This was not a problem but due to this, communication was terrible and left most patrons we spoke to with a sour taste in our mouthes. Beautiful resort and island. It was just a shame services were lacking or non existent but the resort management were happy to take the full cost amounts off us
