Absolutely loved our stay. Island Leisure Resort is as relaxing as it sounds, from the friendly staff to the impeccable rooms. No bugs in sight! Nothing was too hard for the staff and they were very helpful when I lost an earring at the pool. We loved the champagne and chocolates in our room when we arrived that we got...

We stayed for 2 nights in October. The Bure was lovely, aircon was appreciated and the pool was bliss... The hosts were helpful and there's a snack bar onsite that serves the staples (chips, beer etc). We will return!

Stayed for 4 nights at this resort. Found it to be great value for money. Not only were the rooms neat and tidy, the owners and staff were extremely helpful. Considering the age of the accomodation the overall place was still in very good condition. The room I stayed in has just had a revamp and was really nice. Would...

What a great place to stay while exploring magical Magnetic Island! Clean, self-contained, air-conditioned rooms with everything you need. (Like a laundry, kiosk, hire cars.) The pool and gardens are very well kept – that means there are also lots of birds to watch, if that’s your thing. (And it is ours!) Very helpful staff and the owners cannot do...
