We loved our stay at the resort. All of the staff were great - reception, restaurant, dive shop, Foxys bar, glass bottom boat, and the pool bar. We could not fault the pleasant, helpful, and attentive staff. The location is beautiful. The were activities available, such as snorkeling, upright boarding, and kayaking. The rooms have been refurbished and don't reflect... More

The tinkle of coral greets you as you come ashore. A beautiful, as of yet unspolied reef below awaits you. A few hikes across the island. And then there is the resort. It is beautiful, very comfortable, nice beds TV (if you REALLY want it on) and lots of activities for kids and the family. My family was mad at... More

We only spent 24 hours at Fitzroy Island but will undoubtedly return, although suspect that 3-4 days would suffice. The location is beautiful; lovely walks to beaches and the lighthouse, the possibility of snorkelling straight off the beach and seeing lovely coral and superbly coloured fish, even the occasional turtle. The staff were excellent and on a future occasion I... More

Our family of 5 thoroughly recommend Fitzroy Island and the Resort. The island walks are enjoyable. We have little experience with snorkelling but we found it to be good – coral is ok and there are plenty of fish of many varieties. One of the children saw a turtle. Lots of people were snorkelling. Twice a day fish feeding very... More

My husband and I are Cairns locals and have wanted to stay at the resort for a long time. We booked a hotel room for our 2 nights. The room was small but adequate. First floor. No view and no balcony. We kept our curtains closed the whole time because otherwise there is no privacy. But this is not a... More

What a beautiful get away at a great price " Check out/sign up to groupon deals for up to 50% off" We loved it, just the right amount of bush vs buildings with over 90% national park. Snorkel up towards white rock, we snorkeled with nemo, turtles, rock cod and 40 different patterned and coloured fish. I can understand what... More

Beautiful Island, friendly staff. If possible ask for 2nd of 3rd floor room, you don't have people walking past and the view is better. Studios only over look the walkway or bush. If staying in Studio ask for 2nd or 3rd floor, the rooms in between the stair wells and lift are the best as you have the bush outlook.... More

Fitzroy Island is a great value for money island getaway. It's in a beautiful part of the world and is not too expensive for an island. The beaches are nice but a little hard on the feet - so i recommend reef shoes unlike you have hard feet like me. The first day I was there the sun was out... More

Overall the resort has a nice feel, the suite we stayed in was a bit cramped for a family of 5 and when I rang reception about getting an extra bed they never followed it up. Which doesn't surprise me as the majority of the staff seem more interested in talking to each other than helping guests. They actually avoid... More
