My husband and I just spent 5 nights on Fitzroy Island for our wedding Anniversary. Sensational place to stay. Can not fault it in any way. We had an ocean view suite which was clean and suprisingly large. Excepitonal service from all the staff including boat staff. Zephyrs restaurant meals were divine. We would not hesitate to reccomend this resort.... More

I took my partner there for 4 nights and 5 days and it was our best, most relaxing holiday ever. We look forward to coming back later this year. The beaches were more coral than sandy but that's the location and we didn't see it as a flaw as there was a wonderful pool we spent all day next to.... More

After a recent three night stay, we could not praise this place highly enough. From the moment we arrived every staff member was helpful & cheerful and this continued for our entire stay. We arrived early , our room was not ready but we could still use the resort facilities while we waited. Our room - an Ocean Suite -... More

We loved our stay at Fitzroy Island Resort. From our boat transfer from Cairns to our departure we received excellent customer service. We stayed in an Ocean Suite fully contained. Our room was large and modern. We had a small terrace with an oceanview as well as a full kitchen. I would suggest bringing items from the mainland as not... More

Beautiful spot, beautiful resort. Staff on glass boat booked for snorkelling seemed disinterested and were rude, showed no genuine interest in being there. When going in to book kaykak staff seemed noted interested in smoking out the back. It was our first wedding anniversary and a romantic weekend away ruined by a group on young men who spent all afternoon... More

Rooms in this resort are very comfortable and well appointed. We should have planned a bit better and grabbed some food supplies in Cairns, as our room was self-contained (which we didn't expect) and the shop on the island barely sells anything worthwhile. Also, a bit of a wait at check-in meant that we missed lunch at the bar, which... More

As a family living in nearby Cairns, we were very excited to be heading off to Fitzroy Island in the September holidays last year for four nights. Whilst we were very impressed by the natural beauty of the place, and took ourselves off for bushwalks and swims. The resort however disappointed us in many ways, especially given the rates. It...

This place is just amazing not as crowded as green island we got engaged on the island due to the beauty and landscape of the island. We stayed for 2 nights and had amazing views of the ocean. If staying at the hotel it's worth spending more $$ to get the ocean view as the sunsets and sunrises are just... More

We stayed at Fitzroy Island for three nights last November. Originally we had booked through Expedia. After booking we then looked at the resort website which was running a competition for free accommodation and flights. We entered and won this competition. Tim, the Assistant Manager, was fantastic in arranging flights and sorting out our original and new booking. We were... More
