4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Two friends and I recently visited Fitzroy Island and stayed overnight in the resort. We stayed in an 'ocean suite' room. Both the double and fold out sofa bed were comfortable enough. The furnishings were immaculate, and the bathroom was beautifully tiled and well set out. The room features two balconies (I guess if you have a fight you can... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the Fitzroy Island Resort and were impressed by the staff who were very helpful, courteous and always had a friendly smile. Our days were spent swimming, exploring the coral reefs and exploring the island. The walk/climb to the summit was great but manageable for a couple of Seniors but well and truly worth while... More

I was attracted to Fitzroy Island as you could snorkel off the Island on to the Reef. You can, but most of the coral is stressed and covered in brown slime. The scenery is very nice. The wild life I mainly saw were skinks, a funny looking brush turkey type bird, yellow honey eater type birds, these white dove birds,... More

First time visitors to this Island for our anniversary, even though we live in Cairns. The Island looks like a picture out of a magazine, beautiful crystal clear water, and lots of coral to check out. Nudey Beach just a picture to behold. I could have stayed all day swimming there. The resort staff were friendly and helpful, our oceanfront... More

My husband and I recently spent a night at the Fitzroy Island Resort. We went over with my cousin and her husband who live in Cairns. We were a little miffed that the ferry ride across to the island costs much, much more for tourists, than for locals. But we pushed that thought aside, being told that Fitzroy would be... More

Have not yet stayed at the "resort" proper, but had a day trip recently. The day trippers facilities are pretty poor, without any change rooms provided (you have to use the rest rooms), and Foxy's bar looks like it came out of the 80's when the place was built. Day trippers cannot use any of the main resort facilities (restaurant... More

"What time does the bar open?" "Later?" "Where is the turtle sanctuary?" "Next to the camp ground" "Where is the start of the lighthouse walk?" "Next to the campground" There is nothing but beer nuts and chips to eat between 4 and 6pm Take your own food. It's all a bit fend for yourself. Not really a resort as such.... More

We recently spent 3 nights / 4 days on Fitzroy Island Resort. Weather was perfect, staff were friendly and helpful. Our travel agent had not passed on one requirement that my 2 daughters required separate beds. After requiring some assistance with a table lamp that did not have the ability to be either unplugged or turned off, a conversation with... More

We're Cairns locals and after spending a repeat visit of 3 nights on Fitzroy Island, we have vowed that it must become an annual event. Once again, we stayed in an ocean view, one bedroom suite which feels every bit as large as the 72 squ metres advertised. The apartment is beautifully designed so that both the bedroom and main...

My husband and I spent 5 glorious days on Fitzroy Island. The resort was excellent as was the service of the staff. Our breakfasts were delicious, Foxy's Bar offered value for money, tasty meals and lovely cocktails. Zephyr's Restaurant served delictable meals and the views were serene. The best thing we liked about being at the resort, apart from the... More
