The Island Leisure Resort is amazing! Definitely would recommend it to anyone over the 'big names'. We stayed 7 nights in a cottage and loved it! We were within short walking distance to the beach, supermarket and boutique shops. The pool at the resort is amazing, so you don't need to worry about swimming in the sea without a stinger...

My daughter and I stayed here for 7 nights and it was very good. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful and the resort was well maintained and spotless. It was a short stroll to the ferry terminal, bus stop, restaurants, cafes and shops and only metres away from the beach. If you turn right out of the...

I stayed here for 4 nights last week from Monday to Thursday. Apparently November and February are the quiet months on the Island and there were not many other people at the resort during my stay (although the day i left it was apparently booked out for the weekend), I had the pool to myself every time I went in...

A really lovely little resort only metres from the beach, and only a short walk from a supermarket, restaurants, and the ferry terminal. The staff are very friendly and the self-contained units are very clean and nicely decorated. The lagoon pool is perfect on a hot day, but there is a games room for when it rains. Would definitely recommend!

Stayed for a few days in this small, quiet, superbly designed resort. Excellent room, tranquil pool and easy access to Nelly Bay beach. Staff were extremely friendly with special mention to Eileen and Jen. Hired a 4x4 car for a morning and given guidance to several small isolated bays to explore - a grand adventure. Organised a dive trip to...

Really nice self contained units that were spacious and had everything you need. Chilled, close to ferry, beach, bus and supermarket. Staff were friendly and very helpful. A few ants around the sink so keep your open food in the fridge.

Hi Rochelle, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Yes here in the tropics all opened food and drinks must be kept in the fridge. Anything left out on bench tops will attract ants within minutes. Thanks again for a 5/5. Kind regards Eileen Nethercott - Manager - Island Leisure Resort
