20-25 minute walk to The Lagoon and Airlie Beach main drag along coastline board walk and through the Coral Seas Marina complex. Rainbow Complex opens from 7:30am - 2pm, so I did a bit of walking to explore venues. Closest are the Garden Bar (10mins walk) and Sorrento (14mins walk). Shingley Beach has kayaks and paddle boards for hire plus nice shady trees if you want to chill. I stayed in 2 different rooms; both with nice views, are pleasant, clean and comfortable with two pools albeit one of the roof gardens seem in disrepair. Overall good stay for the price.

The front office was welcoming, the room large, clean and fresh, the open restaurant is pleasant and the views were superb. Although, those stairs, which there are plenty needs to be a consideration before you make a reservation. There is no lift.

If you have any mobility issues or no car , think hard before booking.Our " garden view " Studio was on 2nd floor above ground level & lots above that. There is no lift & lots of stairs !! The Studio was spacious & ideal for a couple & very well equipped.WiFi excellent too. Management is poor.Office locked & overdue return. Could not get reply or message bank for calls to either Reception or " after hours no. ". Nice pool & outlook.

Stayed here for four nights. Overall okay. Location is close to what we required. It’s quiet & great views over Coral Sea Marina. Staff friendly. Great bakery/cafe onsite. Room 21 however needs upgrade. Bed base had damaged castors & wood chock holding up corner. Bad shower head - takes longer to shower and use up hot water. Short base sheet on bed. Blanket needed a clean.

After reading some of the other recent reviews on this resort before posting my own, I have to strongly disagree with those who have said anything negative about it. This place is one of the most beautiful and cleanest places we have stayed in so far and have been travelling Australia (with great difficulty since covid, however managed to slowly get around!) for the past 3 years. After staying in many many places across Australia, Shingley Beach resort has by far been one of the most cleanest and quaint little home away from home with the bonus of it being in paradise! The staff were more than helpful and friendly and our room felt more like home rather than a posh upper class snobs resort😊 Gorgeous little animal towels placed on our bed upon arrival to set the theme being across the road (literally) from the beach, and even our toilet paper was in the shape of a boat!! This resort I believe has been there for some time and have been informed was one of the first around in Airlie, so obviously the rooms are not ones which are brand new or even relatively new, therefore we weren’t afraid to use the kitchen or sit on the couch to eat or in general be wary of touching anything. As for those who have given a negative review about the cleanliness of the place I strongly disagree. There are a few chips in the tiles (from age) and water marks on the shower windows yes however you can see as well as smell upon entry that they have been thoroughly cleaned and cared for. Great work to those in charge of these rooms! Highly recommended! 5 out of 5!
