We had a great time over the three days at Whitsundays. The deckhand and captain were very friendly and provided some great information. Arriving at the resort, the rooms were your backpacker bunk beds and 2 singles - what you would expect, all very clean too - could not complain! The activities of snorkelling, fish feeding, trekking to the highest... More

Despite the endless rain we faced in our three days on the Whitsundays, my friend and I had an amazing time. The Adventure Island Resort staff are extremely friendly, and ready to cater to any of your needs, whatever they may be. The food was incredible, and the view was 100x times better. The resort itself is clean, has a... More

Amazing island, gorgeous scenery, crystal clear waters. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Answered any questions you might have and went out of their way to help you even when outside of their working hours. The rooms were spacious, bathrooms were clean. The resort itself had everything you need. The inclusive meals were good. The walks around the island were... More

We came to the resort because it was the only Whitsundaystrip where you sleep on an Island and not in the boat. As we were used to all the hostels, the place was really nice for us, a bit to quite at winter time and everything needs a bit of renovation, but a nice resort, we had a pool, a... More

I am a frequent buyer on groupon (as I love a good bargainl) and when I seen a 3 day 2 night package to the Whitsundays, I was overwhelmed as I wanted to see Whitehaven beach and be able to relax for a few days. What attracted me to this package was you didn't have to stay on the boat... More

This was by far one of the highlights of my time travelling Australia, There was 5 of us travelling all together and we booked the trip as we were intrigued by the island stay, rather than sleeping on a boat. There was a group of about 47 in total and i have made some true friends from all over the... More

How these people are getting away with this is beyond me. By far the worst experience I have ever had travelling or staying anywhere. The resort is an absolute kip. The whole place is mainly closed and extremely dated. The rooms are dirty, beds were rusty, the bathroom door was a sliding door which was falling off and extremely dangerous.... More

People complained about no hot water in the rooms, fridges never worked, a/c were broken and rooms were unbelievably shocking, old and run down.. I'm not upset because I didn't pay much for the trip but come on, your meant to save heaps through groupon... More

We were lucky enough to have read reviews before arriving at the island as you may have got a shock if you were not first advised. The hotel is dated apparently being an old anset asset. The accommodation is adequate but you can tell nothing has really been updated for a while. We were advised that the island is hit... More
