Service was very good. Staff very friendly and helpful. Accommodation was very good - better than expected - we had an en-suite bathroom for 4 people. Very good value for money. Plenty of food at meal times - missed the dessert perhaps!? Beautiful island - great walks - spectacular views. Evening entertainment available if wanted.

We booked a 2 days 2 nights "Pride of Airlie" tour carried out by koala adventures on South Molle Island. It definitely was the WORST TRIP OF MY LIFE! About the vessel: it's really a BAD JOKE and very DIRTY catamaran. The cabin was way too small and smelled like toilet. Also you couldn't lock the toilet. About the resort:... More

Dear Ilovetosurf Thank you for taking your time to review Adventure Island in the Whitsundays. I am very disappointed to see such a bad review about Koala Adventures Pride of Airlie.

Not enough food for all and only cheep food like noodles and rice. In fact only two days and two nights because of the late beginning and early ending of the tour. Like a typical tourist resort with horrible animation e.g. limbo. No time for exploring the island. No BYO but bar closes at 10 pm. You feel like they... More

The food was pretty terrible throughout the trip and the buildings on the island itself are falling apart. However, the staff is very friendly and helpful. A highlight of the trip was learning to husk a coconut. The facilities are below average as our toilet stopped working and the island lost water for part of the stay. Overall, it's not... More

There were so many boats to choose from we didn't know what to do so we booked with a Travel Agent who recommended the Pride of Airlie to us. The Whitsundays were absolutely amazing. The boat itself was really good as was the crew on board. The walk on the island was one of the best I have been on!... More

After being sold this trip in a travel agent in Cairns my friends and I were very excited to be heading to the Whitsundays and actually staying on an island. I was very apprehensive given the price ($499 each!) as I had previously been told by a friend that I should just do a day trip to the Whitsundays as... More

The resort you stay on is very old, the toilet did not work, the pool was not clean, the food was bad, the drinks was expensive. We did not sail because it was to many people on the boat so it was not safe tor sail, so we went by motor the entire trip. Take any other company if you... More
