We recently spent 4 nights at Shingley Beach Resort, on our first ever trip to Airlie. The resort has a lovely pool and Cafe on-site. The decor in rooms is a little dated but the room was clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Honestly a lovely spot, a pleasant 20 mins walk along the boardwark, from main street and about $8 taxi fare back if you so desire. This loved the peace a day quiet this location offered.

Shingley beach resort is in a fantastic location very close to the Abell Point Marina which is where most of the day tours depart from . There was also a couple of fabulous reasonably priced restaurants and cafes at the Marina which are only 5 to 10 minutes from the apartments depending on which one you go to. We had a large one bedroom apartment overlooking the pool and the Marina. The room was comfortable although a little dated in the decor and the furniture and fittings. It had a reasonable standard of cleanliness . Nice touch when we arrived was a welcome note and a nice little Frangipani on the bed cover. Wifi was included as we booked direct. Best place to access it or your local phone provider was on the balcony. The aircon in our room worked well and it was needed in the humidity. The staff were friendly and helpful . The front pool was large and inviting and the smaller pool at the back was also nice. We walked into town every day which was about 20 minutes. You can pick up supplies there or get delivery of essentials. There is also a kayak and SUP hire across the road and one day we hired a kayak and had a little paddle out and managed to spot some turtles 🐢. The on-site Rainbow cafe is a fabulous place to have a drink, a coffee or a meal. It is open for breakfast and lunch. Overall we had a great stay and we were blessed with fantastic weather the whole week despite venturing there in the wet season (March).

This hotel has great facilities and is in a great location, the room was great and even before I arrived I was impressed with the service when I emailed them to book an airport transfer. The staff were very friendly and helpful before I arrived and asked me to provide my flight details and how to get the key from the safe as I arrived after the office had closed. The room was really nice and had a great view of the marina, the hotel is only a short walk from the centre of town and a quick walk to the marina and boathouse. Styaed here for 3 nights and the restaurant here offers a decent selection of food for breakfast. The only thing that wasn't that great about the hotel was that the aircon wasn't working properly but the fan over the bed was good enough to cool the room down at night.

My stay of 11 nights was fantastic! The ocean view studio was spacious, well appointed, clean with a fantastic view of the Coral Sea - just perfect 😃 with 2 pools to choose from and The Rainbow Cafe on site, it was tempting not to go out! With friendly and phenomenal service from the staff always with a smile to look after your needs and organise everything from car hire to day trips to the Reef made Shingley Beach Resort an easy way to holiday. A leisurely 15 minute walk into Airlie Beach via the boardwalk is close enough to be enjoyable with so much to see along the way. Definitely a slice of paradise to return to again.

This is the perfect setting overlooking the Marina. Unfortunately, the room we stayed in required quite a lot of attention. It really required a good scrub especially the bathroom. I had to reclean the toilet but the shower screen just needed replacing. I also had to rewash all the cutlery and crockery. If you are happy to reclean a quiet and pretty place to stay.
