4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Loved the sea bar food and waitresses at the restaurant. Slow service at the other wood restaurant but good food. Excellent salad and pizza at the sand bar. We thoroughly enjoyed having drinks at sunset on the beach. It’s nice that they let you drive your own vehicle on the island and lake McKenzie is a must see! Prices for everything were very high. Recommend bringing food and drinks onto the island when you go to save money if that’s important to you.

Fraser Island is amazing and the resort is very easy and convenient to get to and from the mainland.

  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Property itself is nice enough. However there aren't many food options, which was expected. But as far as the rooms our refrigerator didnt work the entire stay. Nobody even showed up to fix it when we asked. The adjoining room wasn't locked, which was a security concern for us. It just didnt seem to be a property where the staff gave attention to the rooms. If it worked, it worked. If not you just had to deal with it.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Loved the location of the resort and how quiet it was. The only thing we noticed that was in need of an upgrade was the walkways as they were a constant trip hazard, especially when moving luggage.
