After deciding to head to Fitzroy Island alone, I booked 4 nights at the resort and I couldnt be happier! I have read a few negative reviews and many positive ones and I just want to tell those reading these reviews to ignore the negative comments. This place is faultless. The staff, service and facilities are amazing. I was upgraded... More

We stayed on Fitzroy Island for our honeymoon and it was everything we wanted it to be plus more! We were looking for somewhere that was going to be relaxing and accomodating and this did exactly that! We were upgraded on arrival and the staff were always courteous and friendly.

We stayed here as a family of three (with a 9 month old) for 4 nights in December 2013. We found the apartments in great condition. Except for the monster cockroach we had in our room. The breakfast was nice and the staff were friendly. The hotel has no day spa for massages etc and this is a huge opportunity... More

My sister and I visited for 4 nights in Jan 2015 and loved it. We paid a little extra for a room with a balcony and it was so worth it! The resort had it quirks (the ramps near the rooms had a few patched up spots, some of the tiles were cracked near the kitchen) but these little things... More

Hi there ! We spent 3 days in January with a friend of moine in this hotel. This is the only hotel of the island and I would definitely recommend you to stay on Fitzroy instead of Cairns. Much more holiday feeling. The island is just beautiful and very exotic. Nice walks and snorkeling around. The hotel looks ok for... More

We just spent 3 days on this beautiful little island. It is off-peak so it was lovely and quiet. The suite we stayed in was perfect. The staff were ALL so friendly and helpful, and made an effort to be sociable, whether they were working at that time or not. The food was lovely, although I wouldn't count on grabbing... More

Have stayed on other Barrier Reef islands and my partner and I decided to try 3 nights on Fitzroy, which has relatively easy access from Cairns. It's a 45 minute boat ride from Cairns 'Reef Terminal' which is a short bus or cab ride from the airport. The island has only relatively recently reopened (2 years or so) and the... More

Great place for a quiet few days, on the reef so snorkeling & glass bottom boat available, and also good safe swimming. A few nice short walks among the forests. Hotel rooms are spacious, clean most with Ocean Views. The only downside is the restaurants, only 2 available, 1 is good restaurant quality the other (Foxys) is lacking in quality,... More
