We have just left this island this morning and our family has enjoyed every moment. We had a glorious 7 nights there. The staff are superb and so helpful. They remembered the little things like the plastic cup and straw sitting on our table at dinner etc and had things ready before we even got to the restaurant. The meals... More

We sat in the restaurant each night of our 5 night stay on Green Island in December and thought how lucky we as Australians were, to have this most amazing place on our doorstep. I had booked this holiday as my 60th birthday present (encouraged by my husband who had been here several times over the years) having never been... More

Enchanting place, in touch with nature and as close as being on a deserted island as we will ever get. Magnificent snorkeling, delicious food and best service. The sunsets and night skys are to die for. Great Honeymoon or wedding spot. Stayed there with our family for 6 days visiting from Canada. Definately returning on our next trip, I don't... More

We have been looking forward to taking our 3 children - aged 10,12 & 14 - to the Great Barrier Reef for many years. We decided to start our holiday at Green Island so that the children could practice snorkelling before we headed for the outer reef. I was pleasantly surprised by just how easy it was to access good... More

We arrived here for a three night stay . It was fantastic . The accommodation is top quality and serviced every day . The resort is beautiful and once the day guests go home it feels very exclusive . We had a picnic on the beach which was organised by reception and was plentiful . The staff are very helpful... More

We took advantage of a Luxury Escapes package which was very good value and spent 7 nights at the resort. As other reviewers have reported, there are crowds of day trippers on the island between 9.30am and 4.30pm and the resort is set in the middle of the action although access is limited to house guests. However, that was really... More

My partner and I are Cairns locals and having visited Green Island on a few occasions, decided to stay overnight at Green Island Resort for a getaway. While the island can be bustling with tourists throughout the day, the resort is quiet and rooms are cabins located in a lovely jungle layout. Clean, comfortable, and loved the tropical feel. Nice...

Great place to stay for a fun adventurous time, once the day trippers leave it is like staying on your own private island. Rooms are nice and comfortable and the actives offered are interesting and informative depending on the guide as some impart more information than others.
