5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Stayed for just one night and think it was well worth the money! Everything from snorkel hire to beach chair hire to bottom boat tours is free for guests of the resort. When 4.30 comes and all the day visitors leave there are complimentary drinks by the water before going to get dinner. We chose a picnic hamper so we... More

The rooms and facilities were clean and very comfortable. Food at the only restaurant on the island was consistently good although service was slow. Highly recommend room service. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My husband and 7 year old Daughter recently styed on Green Island for a night and wished we had spent a few more! It's a great place for kids and couples. The island has lots of do and its fantastic to be there after 4.30pm when the day trippers leave - quiet and peaceful. Lots to look for at night... More

I've been wondering how to review this resort since the first night. It is difficult to describe. This resort is described as an island paradise etc... and it really is. And yet, it somehow misses the mark, while being exactly what it is described as being. There is just no doubt that this is a beautiful experience. The island is... More

Having stayed on Fitzroy, Heron, Lady Elliot, Fraser, Moreton and Hamilton Island we were interested to compare Green Island. My family and I have just returned from a 7-night stay at Green Island and it is absolutely as beautiful as the others and we would have loved to stay longer! We will definitely return. The resort itself is better than... More

My partner and I stayed for a week with our baby boy. The resort was lovely, and we had a great week away. There is obviously a high turn over of staff, but they were very friendly and very keen to please. The room was great - spacious and clean. Access for the stroller was great around the resort -...

We had a pleasant time on Green Island but reviews are right to correct any misconceptions one could get from the resort website. This is not a secluded, quiet, high end island resort. It is a popular day tripper destination overrun during the day with tourists flocking to its small beach and fast food stalls. At night you can imagine... More

Spent a couple of nights here; room was clean and spacious and resort was quiet. Restaurant, Emeralds is a touch expensive but the food was good and plentiful. Breakfast was an amazing buffet. Snorkelling was ok, saw a lot of turtles around the island. Sunset drinks on the beach was a nice touch. Wouldn't like to be there during the... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2014

We stayed 2 nights. Although some complained about the daytrippers, it wasn't nearly as bad as we had feared--perhaps because it is not high season. Still, it's eerie and cool when they all leave in the late afternoon. Snorkeling was good, especially off the end of the pier. The restaurant Emeralds, while expensive, was surprisingly good for both breakfast (included)... More
