We stayed at the Fitzroy Island Resort for 5 days. We have booked an Ocean Room assuming we will have a view or at least the glimpses of the water. Unfortunately, this wasn't a case: we didn't have any view at all apart from the building in front of us. The management doesn't guarantee the view when you book it... More

We expected something from the 70's and arrived to find a modern, clean and excellent resort with all the facilities anyone could wish for. We only booked in for 2 days but could have stayed for 4. Its not cheap but none of the Reef resorts are, and we considered it good value for money. We went snorkelling right in... More

We found Fitzroy island resort to be a fabulous vacation spot. We had read negative reviews but our experience was terrific. The snorkeling was a highlight and we saw so many fish and a turtle, too. The beach, hikes and Foxy's Bar were ideal. We wished we could have stayed 2 nights instead of just 1. An ideal getaway from... More

We stayed 5 nights in July and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The resort was lovely, and we booked an Ocean Suite, which came with a full kitchen and a balcony overlooking the water (though the garden). We brought a lot of our own food from the mainland, and just had dinner one night at the restaurant,... More

Very nice island, the resort is good value, Foxys great! The weather was stunning, could not have asked for better. Great weekend, marred only by the staff of the resort, who were disinterested at best. A friend had to order a drink 3 times before it was unceremoniously dumped on the table in front of him. We ordered our coffees... More

You can snorkel and swim on the beach (beware of sharp dead coral at feet). The campsite looks like it has been remade by Cairns City Council and is $35 a night. Although you can eat & drink everyday at the nearby resort (walking distance), which is $7 per drink and about $21 a meal. Constant ferries to and from... More

Stayed here with two other families, kids all aged six to twelve. We chose Fitzroy Island as we thought that the kids would be able to snorkel straight from the beach. This was certainly the case and you can see great coral and fish, as good as the reef we saw on the boat tour we had previously done, within... More

Hi jason655 Thank you for your comprehensive review of your stay with us at Fitzroy Island Resort. It was fantastic to read your family enjoyed snorkelling the reef just in front of the resort. Great to also read you were able to swim with turtles each morning as well. Certainly a memorable experience to take away with you! I would... More

Arriving at the resort we were quickly told we would be guaranteed our room by 2pm. On seeing our room we were delighted with how clean and comfortable it was. It had all the equipment you would need for a stay of 3 nights or more. We had a 5 night stay and did not need the large fridge or... More

We stayed here as a family of four for 3 nights in July. The island is beautiful - gorgeous coral beaches and clear waters. However, the resort itself could be great, but is a bit lacking in some areas. We booked a 2 bedroomed ocean suite for myself, husband and 20 yr old son and 15 year old daughter. The... More
