You walk in and at first impression looks great, great layout beautiful view lovely pools but unfortuneatly it's not maintained very well, this place could be amazing! It's the little things that ruin it, like the bath towel rail falls off on one side when u put a towel on it, toilet roll holder sitting jammed into the wall, air... More

We booked this holiday as a family holiday and the accommodation was spacious, relaxed and had stunning views! We hired a car and a car park was included! The service was beyond helpful, we booked two tours through recommendations and can honestly say we had the best holiday ever!!! You always think that travelling in Australia is really expensive and... More

Excellent , quiet, clean and scenic accommodation. The setting is majestic with truly beautiful ocean views and surrounded by tropical rainforest. The accommodation is superb, being large and fully self contained in a quality manner, with a very large balcony looking out over the Whitsundays. If you drive as we did, the parking provides large car spaces, excellent security and... More

Stayed in August, apartment 2, filthy, dated furniture with tears and stains. Mould stained blinds. We weren't convinced the apartment had been cleaned after last people stayed. Cigarette wrappers left in kitchen. Dishwasher filthy inside!?! No wonder the crockery and cutlery doesn't seem too clean. Needless to say, it isn't clean in here! There are dishwasher soaps etc, a full... More

Close to town - good walk up hill first from town but without the hill you wouldn't have the superb view. Clean we'll appointed apartments with everything you need. Only downfall for this corporate traveller is there is no wi-fi. Note to self - remember to check when booking accommodation to ensure there is wifi.

We stayed for 3 nights in August and had a 2 bedroom apartment that had one of the bedrooms locked off. The apartment we stayed in is currently on the market - probably because of the noisy tenants in the apartment directly above (no. 11). These people started 'jamming' with electric guitars at 10pm and continued on and off throughout... More

very nice. property awesome views. I thought the room was a long way from the reception area and to get to the room was a rather disjointed route. I had to go down one lift into the garage an up in an other lift 30 meters away. upon my arrival i was met by a very spacious room.

We spent 2 nights in an apartment at the Grand Mercure Azure Sea in Airlie Beach. The apartment was very large with a big balcony with a great view over Airlie Beach. It was convenient for everything in the Airlie Beach area, located on the (quite steep) hill behind Airlie Beach away from backpacker central down below. However, the apartment... More
