Fitzroy Island has had a major refurb and looks great. The rooms are fresh and spacious. There are two restaurants, one that is more for fine dining and the other-Foxies, has got typical bar/grill type fare. The beach is full of sharp coral but you can snorkel and see fringing reef just off shore. There are plenty of great walks... More

This is a lovely island, not spoilt by over commercialism and we loved it. We found the accommodation a bit over priced, we booked a 2 bedroom ocean view suite on the 3rd floor and paid extra for it as we were two couples travelling together. We weren't impressed though to find no interleading door between the two rooms as... More

Had my 50th on the island and wanted to spend it around the pool, apparently no food is allowed in the pool area. This is something I have never experienced, even in Australia. Closing the pool bar @ 4pm when there are 40 people enjoying the pool and encouraging them to go to Foxies, which really isnt somewhere we wanted... More

Spent 2 nights recently in a self contained ocean view suite. Room was very musty smelling when we entered and required us opening all the folding doors which eventually improved the problem. Rooms was good apart from the smell. Restaurant is not open every night which means dining has to be at Foxys which is pretty rough around the edges... More

We've had 3 days at the island and had a great time. The accommodation was good, but make sure you ask for a room with a view rather than rooms that look on to the walkway to the rear . The swim up pol bar was a fab way byo while away a lazy afternoon , but for some reason... More

I stayed at Fitzroy island resort for 4 nights last week and totally enjoyed my time there. I read all the bad reviews about the resort before decided to stay, so I was well prepared. The island is very beautiful. Both of the beach in front of the resort and Nudey beach have a lot of corrals, so bring your... More

The island is Gorgeous, hotel is in perfect location and with improved customer service could be booming, instead Its dead. Don't bother paying for WiFi it doesn't work! Make sure you bring your own food and drinks because if they don't have staff they close the restaurant and options are limited! Convenience store is extremely limited and so expensive its... More

We went to Fitzroy for our 5th wedding Anniversary. We had spent the extra money on the self contained suite and it was well worth it. The room was quiet, spacious and had a lovely view of the beach. One suggestion is to take notice of the advice about the ants as it comes in handy to avoid them invading... More

Folks, in all seriousness beware of this resort - the only thing going for it is the reef, and we all know you can't stay underwater for your whole stay. The cocktails were horrible - worst piña colda of my life (enough to boycott happy hour) and our room has a special mouldy odour and felt cheaper than camping. We... More
