“Relax in luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

Marina Shores was more than we hoped for, quiet location, comfy beds, modern well equipped kitched, and personal BBQ on a large verandah. Staff are very accomodating, they even offer later check-out dependant upon availabily, suited us perfectly as we wanted to sleep in and spend some more time in the beautiful pool. Families are welcomed, and even though there were a few families there when we went, it was not noisy like some other places that I have visited. This hotel deserves their 5star rating....Loved our stay...

Room Tip: I believe all of these rooms would be acceptable, the ocean view is magnificent though!!!

Couldn't have asked for more from handling of initial enquiry, reservation, apartment and location. Paying that bit more was so worth it.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

I spent two nights here in Jan 2012. The room was an apartment, with a better kitchen than my house (must do something about that!) and laundry.
The lounge was large and led out to a deck with a small garden.
The bathroom was a good size, and all the fittings - like the whole hotel - seemed new and unworn.
Lastly, when I arrived, the stereo was on and playing music in the background, a nice touch that made it feel more welcoming.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

Pros:
Let me just say the view from our 2 bedroom apartment style room was stunning. The apartment is well kitted-out, and you'd be hard pushed to need anything in the kitchen. I could pretty much live there with everything that they had! The fact that I could open my curtain and check on my car in the undercover parking was nice. I gave my mum the room with the nice view (I had the room at the back).

Cons:
The apartment wasn't the cleanest and my end of the apartment (the room without the water view, towards the back) smelled very strongly of sewerage throughout the stay- coming from my bathroom area. Not that much of a big deal as we were not there for much of the time!
The apartment walls are thin and you can hear much of what goes on next door and above (we were on the second floor). Someone had a party one night and we woke up to balloons on our balcony :) Not a big deal as I sleep with ear plugs in all the time (husband snores!). The only other con was the fact that someone above us was smoking weed frequently during the evenings and even on the morning we checked out. His mum or partner (or someone) confronted him about the dangers of 'becoming a druggie' early (3am) one morning!

Would recommend this place for the view alone- but I might give one of the resorts closer to the centre of Airlie a go next time.

Room Tip: Make sure you go for one with a good water view!

one of the best and cheapest penthouse's we stayed at, (cairns charge twice as much.) a second fridge and toilet upstairs is a nice touch, we'll be back again.

Room Tip: if your sharing, penthouse is good value
