DO NOT GO - My partner and I booked to stay for 3 nights and ended up staying for 1 because it was so awful. We were looking forward to sailing around the island in a catamaran and eating delicious seafood in the restaurant. The online advertising lead us to believe it was a resort with resort facilities - but it was a nightmare. The food was disgusting and there was no restaurant. We had to buy food from the 'cafe' which was only open limited hours. The food was not even cafe quality and we couldn't even eat our dinner. We left it uneaten and went hungry. We could not wait to get off the island as we could not stay there and eat that food for 3 days. The rooms were falling apart and the whole resort is like a ghost town - literally falling down. There were no catamarans and when we asked we were told that 'nobody ever asks for them'. We went to the pub which opened at 5pm and the floor was sticky and dirty and obviously hadn't been cleaned and the toilets were also disgusting. The only other people in the bar were the staff. The staff were nice enough but obviously not concerned with people's holiday experiences. They were all young backpackers obviously enjoying themselves. After reading other peoples comments I am appalled that this place is able to get away with continually treating people this way and ripping people off. Most of us have to save hard for our holidays and expect to be able to at least eat the food we pay for. This is so bad for Queensland Tourism and as a Queenslander I am disgusted at this treatment. We ended up staying at Airlie Beach Hotel which was lovely. I only wish we went there first.
