  • Great location. Room quite dated for price. Cleaning needs to be stepped up in bathroom…

  • We made the mistake of thinking this was an apartment but it was a suite- one big room…

  • 4,0.Fair

    Spa bath had hairs inside - no hygienically cleaned sticker either present, cigarette butts on balcony, sliding door to balcony didn’t lock, shower screen door didn’t shut, water everywhere in bathroom and limited hot water in shower. Shower hot water lasted 2 minutes then goes cold, flow of water very poor. Had to run hot water in kitchen sink to maintain hot water in shower, otherwise it goes cold. Called to complain, maintenance man sent, but couldn’t fix. We had to put up with this. This is not a cheap place to stay and expected better. This resort has no on site staff, other than part time cleaner. Managed by sister resort next door. In need of some general maintenance and TLC. Other than that, outdoor pool was great, location great, bed was extremely comfortable.

    Transit stay 2 nights

    Great location walking distance to shops & restaurants. Room was a great size will full size fridge & kitchen utensils. Bed was comfortable. There is no water pressure in the shower & it took about 45mins plus to fill the spa up. Overall nice stay

    Great location and staff but run down and very tired. Fridge broken, rain shower does not work, balcony door does not lock, toilet seat not attached, toaster only toasts on one side, lounge falling apart. Needs a full refurbishment and given the amount of property this group manages should not be an issue. Maybe a management change is required?

    The spa on balcony. Rest needs up dating and the picture on website needs to be upgraded as they have pics of the penthouse for the spa room. Spa room had no view like the picture on the web site. 4/10

    A Nice property

    This has been a very nice property, and still is quite nice. It's spacious, king size bed, great air con, lounge seating, an ergonomic type chair, a spa on the balcony nice kitchenette with full size frig and nice bathroom. Whilst it is fitted out with quality inclusions, it does show its age. However, one could comfortably live here! There is undercover parking. Note, there is no lift , stairs only.

    The minute we walked in the unit there was a sense of calm and quiet luxury. Although the property is starting to show its age, it was clean and comfortable.

    Wonderful holiday - Great Place to stay

    The staff were superb in ensuring our needs were met even down to details like fancy folded towels! Nice touch! We loved the position and convenience. Airlie is an awesome place for a holiday. with some much to see and do from snoozing on the beach, swimming, snorkeling, Great Barrier Reef excursions, taking in the beautiful views from the deck, great bush walks and more.
