My husband and I recently honeymooned at Fitzroy Island and we loved it! Great snorkelling! The water is so clear and beautiful! Service was amazing, we'd personally like to thank Elliot, Mel, Lucas and Tommy for providing us with great service and lots of laughs! We stayed in an ocean suite which was spacious, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed waking...

We arrived in cairns and from the moment we got to the ferry we were greeted with a very hospitable crew. They were happy and smiley and offered to help with the bags. On arrival at the island we were amazed by the natural beauty of the place, the lush greenery meeting the torquise blue of welcome bay. We checked...

Fitzroy Island is the wow factor, it is simply stunning! We stayed 4 nights in an Ocean Suite which was immaculately clean and handsomely appointed, with dining table, lounge, plasma tv, full kitchen with stove top, oven, microwave and fridge, nice bathroom and big bedroom with huge glass windows with views of the sea. Breakfast was included in our package...

As a Cairns local it's quite easy to just get away to Fitzroy, honestly a night in the island resort is cheaper than a night in the city but you're on an amazing island. The resort is quite clean and very nice all around, staff are very friendly and helpful. Pool is great, we found preference to that than the...

Myself and a friend visited Fitzroy Island at the beginning of the week, and as much as it is simply beautiful itself, the service we recieved from a lovely young gentleman that day was exception and made us enjoy the day even more!

We have been here for our honeymoon in june 2014. The resort is the only hotel in the island and it is quite confortable, even if I think it could be improved. The island is stunning, and it is very relaxing. The nature is strongly beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay. We had a suite with the ocean view...

We stayed in an ocean view suite. It was lovely. Very spacious, new granite kitchen, marble bathroom. I loved having a double power point both sides of the bed, and plenty elsewhere. Unusually, there was no clock radio. Well appointed kitchen, with a new cooktop, though there was no coffee plunger or espresso machine, which would have been a nicer...

I left Fitzroy Island feeling unsure about the whole stay. We stayed for 3 nights. I'll start with the positives: Beautiful rainforest walks- Secret Garden and Nudey Beach (both suitable for children) well worth the walk, even in the rain its lovely so dont let that put you off. Turtle tour and fish feeding conducted by JEN- She is great...

Only stayed at the island's one and only resort to check out the place. If there's a chance in future, would stay another night or two as there's quite a number of things to cover on the island. For starters, the main Nudey Beach takes an hour to get to but word has it the walk is worth it. There...

Sorry but this is a bit of a tale. I have never written such a long review before but I felt I had to say something.This was such a mixed experience for us. The island is great and the snorkelling is very good. This was my choice as I wanted to be able to snorkel straight off the coral beach...
