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

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

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
