The island is nice but not much to see. There are no chairs or grass area or sand for that matter along the beach area just coral. Not really worth it. You can not enter the resort on the island and there is only one restaurant to buy food and drinks

We stayed at Fitzroy Island Resort in the ocean suite. It was worth paying the additional for the suite which had plenty of space, kitchenette and large bathroom and bedroom and small veranda. The room was immaculate and clean at all times. The resort itself was well kept and each area clearly signposted. The pool and swim up pool bar...

Booked in to the resort on Australia Day for three nights in a Ocean View suite. Went to our room and were pleasantly surprised by the fantastic ocean views from our windows and the high standard of the rooms. We had a full kitchen, lounge area and big bedroom and bathroom. There were a few minor issues with the room,...

Hi razor1111 Many thanks for providing detailed feedback of your recent stay with us. Whilst it is a pleasure to hear great comments of our service, it is of course disappointing to hear of the room issues. This is unusual as housekeeping pride themselves on maintaining a high standard. I will be passing on your comments to the Housekeeping department....

We stayed for 4 nights after New Years and paid a premium for accommodation to get the best standard of room as it was a birthday celebration. Would never stay again at the full rate. It's built and charged as a 5 star resort but mostly run by back packer staff so has a very unprofessional feel about it (except...

Great place to visit for a day or two. We went to Fitzroy Island with an organised group ( Ragging Thunder). We bought tickets to get to the island on their boat with an "experience package" attached - Glass bottom boat, snorkeling, paddle boarding and sea kayaking. The staff that work for ragging thunder are informed, helpful, flexible and very...

Dear Anonymous Trip Advisor Reviewer, Thank you for taking the time to review Fitzroy Island Resort. We are committed to rectifying guests concerns whilst they are at the property. Given this reviewers anonymity, It is hard to pin point if this reviewer brought their concerns to our Senior Management team whilst onsite. We are confident we could have “made it...

The ferry trip over (45mins trip) was great, only issue was they had no snacks on board for the trip back. The snorkelling is sensational. Stinger suits were needed even though many opted not to wear them. Maybe just a tourist money spinner? We did the glass bottom boat and snorkelling trip for about an hour. Our guides were fantastic...

Hi Harveyd2323, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your day trip to Fitzroy Island. The snorkelling around Fitzroy Island is world class and Nudey Beach was awarded 2nd Best Beach for 2017. I can assure you the stinger suits are not a tourist money spinner.

Fitzroy Island is 95% natural reserve and 5% resort. The trip out there on the Fitzroy Flyer was great. They take your luggage on board and offload other end so it's waiting for you after you check in. Once on the island our 2 rooms were ready early which was lucky. We had an ocean view suite with full kitchen,...
