My boyfriend and I had such a great stay at Amaroo- the owners could have not been more friendly and went out of their way to help us out. Great location, and good amenities on site. Would definitely recommend :-)

Room: Functional, on the small side. Comfortable bed. No fly screens on front windows or door. Kitchen very clean. No cooktop. Only microwave. Plenty of plates, etc. Décor (as others have stated) is a little dated. The curtains in my room had mould. Bathroom could have been better (dusty benchtops & bin and the shower I gave a good once...

My partner booked two nights at Amaroo on Mandalay in the Executive Suites without looking at the photos first. The place was clean but the room which are meant to be "executive suites" were really ugly and dated. I have no idea why these are called executive suites. The location wasn't bad because he had a car and the guy...

Originally we stayed on the island for 1 week in a motel on the esplanade and when we wanted to extend our stay we couldn't because the unit was booked. We looked at alternative accommodation and found Amaroo on Mandalay. We had a beautiful unit on the North side with a bush border. The only thing I found slightly disturbing...

The lovely man looking after the place in the manager's absence gave us great tips about how to make the most of seeing the wildlife on the property which was one of our highlights on Magnetic Island. The room eas comfy and clean and we could feed the birds every morning and afternoon...

Me and the girlfriend had no plans for the long weekend but i soon realized everyone else did.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely motel for one night. The owners are very gracious and gave us our pick of room. We ended up staying in a newly renovated unit with fresh paint, tile, new air/con, kitchen, lighting and bed which was extremely comfortable. There was also a massive TV. We had a large fridge and as...

Granted this place got hammered by Yazi a few years back and is slowly rebuilding. Pool area is lovely with a smaller 20cm pool for kids to splash around in with shade. Sadly the restaurant and bar are not operational and so you will have to venture out for food and a drink. Rooms are basic but clean and have...

Hi Paul Thanks for the review.You are right, Yasi was a big factor here are cause a lot of damage. As the resort units are individually owned and we are not run by a big corporation with a bottomless pit of money, the road back has been a long one. But thankfully the last stage, the restaurant building, is about...
