We had a sea view room and this was excellent, we enjoyed sitting on the couch with our coffee and watching the ferries go past. We liked having our own kitchen facilities, though the stove top, toaster and kettle were looking pretty dated. Wonderful staff that were always helpful.
Staff were very helpful. Shower could have been better, floor got soaked no matter what you did
This property is extremely well located with a 10 minutes walk to main street of Airlie Beach and the facilities are very well maintained.
Magnificent view of the ocean from apartment 349. Undercover balcony in addition to a rooftop balcony allowing star gazing and 150° views
Everything was amazing, the staff, the room, the pool and the buffet in the morning was wanderful!!
Our bungalow was centrally located to the pool, beach, resort facilities and walking distance from the town centre.
Nice property. Walking distance to the main strip but the walk is long with very steep hills. Loved the pool. The breakfast included was fairly limited and was the same every day. Room and view were very nice.
