This was the worst trip I have been on whilst travelling the world! We were unfortunately hit by bad weather, which we understand no one can control! After hearing that no other whitsundays boat went out that day and that we was still sent out was shocking! The weather forecast was bad yet we was still sent out! The whole... More

We have spent a great 2 nights and 3 days on South Molle- although not a 5 star resort they have most things you will need. Maria is fantastic organising all the activities and staff, Ben is a champion, and awesome deckie. Mimi was great with all the guests, checking to make sure everyone is ok and having fun. David...

Despite previous reviews, it seems this place has really been turned around. I had such an amazing trip and I didn't want to leave to be honest. Actually thinking about going back to work there on my second year visa! It was like a paradise island. Big pool to lounge round and a nice bar with $10 jugs of sangria..... More

I had the pleasure of going to South Molle Island over my uni holidays! This trip was fantastic. South Molle Island is absolutely beautiful. The bush walk is voted one of the best in Australia and did not disappoint at all with stunning views over the Whitsunday Islands. The accommodation is very basic but you dont spend much time in...

The resort you are staying in is really nice. There is a big pool and a fantastic view of sunsets in the evening. The dining room and the "adventure bar" is nicely decorated. You stay in rooms of 4 but a upgrade would be possible. The rooms are clean and the beds are all right. It is said that you... More

Okay...it's not 5 star but Adventure Island Resort on South Molle Island is AWESOME value for money. Accommodation, food, sailing, stinger suit and snorkel gear......all included. And all on a gorgeous tropical island with one of the best bush walks in Queensland. And SUPER fun! I am amazed that anyone would complain about being part of a small group in... More

My friend and I were looking forward to this trip the most out of our entire two week vacation. However we were disappointed and felt tricked by the website advertising the trip. Firstly, we arrived at 1:30 for the 2pm departure. The boat was nowhere in sight until about 2:30 and we didn't end up leaving the dock until 3:30... More

For my birthday my partner and I thought it would be nice to see the Whitsunday's and we found a great groupon deal for a resort stay with Kola Adventure Island Resort. We liked the idea of seeing the Whitsunday's without staying on the boat the entire time. We should have looked at reviews first. 1) THIS IS NOT A... More

Hello. This review should be looked at in context - first the guest was here at the Island just before our main groups arrived - firstly, the guest did not actually stay at our resort. Due to this there was no staff on at the time thus guest decided to go Dora the Explorer and look through the island. As... More
