We recently spent 3 nights here after hearing how great it was from someone we knew. I'd thoroughly recommend this spot as an affordable alternative to visiting the more expensive Great Barrier Reef excursions as the snorkelling off the beach was excellent, the marine life and coral on display was first class. In terms of the resort it's just disappointing... More

We just returned from a 2 night stay at Fitzroy. We had a good local special and went with two other families, each with 2 kids ranging from 4 - 11yrs. Positives: There was heaps to do! The beaches and water were stunningly beautiful. The kids loved the water trampoline, spending ages on there. It had a slight rip in... More

We signed up for annual membership and booked a night for my husband's birthday which unfortunately coincides with the school holidays. The staff are friendly and helpful but there's simply not enough staff to handle a full resort. We arrived at 12 and were told our room would not be ready until the advertised check in time of 2pm. Fair... More

Stunning beach and water - plenty of activities! Nice pool and relaxing atmosphere. Attentive staff. In my opinion for the price of the rooms per night the cost of the ferry to and from the island should definitely be included - decent discount for locals though! Really lovely food - definitely try the Duck dish at Zephyr Restaurant... quite expensive.... More

Stayed at Fitzroy Island Resort for 8 days over the Easter break. 45 min ferry ride from Cairns. Resort was very busy, and camping ground was also full. Many people also on the island for day trips. Stayed in a beach cabin which slept 4 people with two separate sleeping areas. Cabin was pleasant with AC in both rooms. Bathroom... More

I read the reviews on Trip Advisor regarding Fitzroy Island and I'd say that they are all accurate depending upon what you're seeking from an island resort. The resort rates itself as 4 1/2 stars but this is wildly optimistic. The positive's: great pool, good/very good food at both Zephyrs and Foxy's, attentive staff, restaurant & bar pricing quite reasonable... More

We want to love this place - we're locals.. so it's too bad there is just too much to gripe about. Ok, since the place is an island where all the guests check in at one time then you think they would have a system figured out where everyone checks in reasonably fast. You do this everyday right? How about... More

My wife and I went to Australia for our honeymoon and visited different parts of the country . After paying a large sum of money for the hotel , they charge another large amount for a run down old ferry. When we arrived at Fitzroy Island and went to our hotel room , the room was significantly outdated and rundown.... More
