The wifi provided by Water's Edge resort back to Stone Age speed. Impossible to connect to the rest of world, if you stay at 4th floor, you need to stand out at the balcony to get reception. Rude male staff at the breakfast place. Narrow driveway, bus can only stop at the bottom of the steep driveway, it will be...

The hotel/resort is pretty good, but we hadn't got any information about that they didn't had any roomservice and you have to pay additional 5$ to borrow a pool towel, which most hotels just offers for free. There are way to few sun beds by the pool and the bar are closed after breakfast until 3pm, so you can't have...

Great apartment in a small hotel.Emily was exemplary in helping us sort our onward trip out after we missed a flight. She sorted new flights,check out, hire car return within about 15 minutes whilst we were panicking! She was really knowledgeable about local excursions and we booked a couple of trips to Whitsundays and Crocodile safari which we thoroughly enjoyed....

These apartments are in a first class position and only a few minutes walk from the busy main street where all the bars and restaurants can be found. We stayed for 12 nights and found that if you stay for more than 8 nights, breakfast was available at no extra cost. Breakfast is on a continental basis which we found...

The Receptionist (I think her name is Emma) is excellent, she went out of her way to make us welcome, was friendly & professional. She booked our Reef Tour without a hitch in super fast time. The apartment was large, with great views over the ocean, the king bed very comfortable. Air conditioner worked well. I see bad reviews but...

The accomodation is quite dated but it's in a great location near the main strip in Airlie. Close walk to the lagoon and the beach plus all the shops for supplies. However, the pool is heated after 6pm (or around then) and it's unbearable to swim in the 28 degree heat. It was cooler and more comfortable to sit out...

Stayed here for a week 2 bedroom apartment bit over priced for the age of the building. But the staff very helpful and friendly.
