3rd visit to Green Island, love it for the young kids. Great swimming, snorkeling, patrolled beaches. You have to pay for sun lounge on the beach $15 other than that nice day out. I booked a dive this time around great staff but so busy with Chinese New Year. After the dive had a good lunch and beers.😉 with great... More

Staying at this resort is definitely one of the best things you can do in Cairns, even as a local. Although not ultra modern, the resort is sympathetic to the natural environment and staff are welcoming and friendly. It is a great place to relax and chill out away from the crowds during the middle of the day. After 4pm... More

We spent a total of 4 days (3nights) on the island and very much enjoyed a wonderful stay. The island itself gets busy with day-trippers but by 4pm the all disappear and it felt like we had the island to ourselves. We spent a lot of our time snorkelling and relaxing on the beach under shade. For snorkelling would recommend... More

A perfect island holiday - luxurious and charming rooms with all amenities PLUS charming bungalow features like plantation shutters, bay-shaped timber decks, and floor-to-ceiling rainforest views (if you ask for a rainforest room not a pool view room). Staff were lovely and so helpful. You can snorkel straight off the beach into excellent "Finding Nemo"-type coral and fish and turtles!... More

Really its like buying a car and its awful, and the dealer says "yeah but the tyres are nice". I simply can not understand the reviews that rave about 'how nice the place is when the day visitors leave' For the money you have paid it should be like that ALL the time. We were prisoners in our room for... More

Hi Greg, thank you for your review, sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay. Some feedback on the points you raised: - There are reef island resorts that do not have day visitors and charge accordingly – at a minimum double Green Island’s rates. The reality is that Green Island Resort has no control over who comes to... More

So many positives from our one night stay at Green Island Resort. Initially it looks expensive, but when you consider how much it costs for two adults and a child to do a snorkeling trip in QLD, staying on the island seems very reasonable. All equipment is included for snorkeling. We snorkled for hours just off the beach and cruised... More

The staff are very friendly and the room is clean and comfortable.You do not have options for restaurant in the evening as there will be only one restaurant open at night. It is very fun to have a night walk to do some exploration.

If you are looking to take your family in northern QLD anytime soon, than Green Island should go onto your list of musts. The trip over on the boat is very professional and then the service starts straight off the boat. Our rooms were not ready but we were shown around and given our free stinger suits and snorkelling gear.... More
