Very clean and spacious studio apartments, with a kitchen and balcony overlooking the lagoon (with direct passage there). Quite, but right on the Main Street. The staff were kind and helpful. There is laundry and booking service on site. Very recommend.

Right next to the lagoon pool and park, and in the centre of Airlie Beach town. So for location this place is excellent. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, really made our stay wonderful. The room was ok for a few days stay. Very spacious but could do with just a bit of love which would make it a lot... More

Such a great stay here. So central, great location, quiet and secure. Comfy beds, nice and clean. Nice kitchenette area with communal washer dryer. The staff were so lovely and they made us feel so welcoming and were available for any advice, staff so accommodating for a late arrival and personal access to the beach. Would not hesitate to recommend... More

We were very upset & disappointed with management's failure to respond when another hotel guest completely parked us in and we couldn't get out to be at the cruise terminal on time. The 'after hours' number just kept going to message bank. No one was on site. The man at reception didn't seem to care when I informed him of... More

Stayed at Whitsunday On The Beach during August 2014. Have been fortunate to travel a lot through my life but have to say, as a location goes, I have never stayed anywhere better. Had a first floor room and balcony overlooking the Airlie lagoon and beach, and all facilities (bars, restaurants, walking track, ATM, supermarket, etc. ) were all within... More

My friends and I stayed here before and after our diving trip. Great budget accommodation with friendly helpful staff! We had no problem with the noise as we know Airlie is a Party town that's why we stayed there, nice central location so you can walk to shops pubs clubs and eateries.

Our room was upstairs, smallish, concrete block construction. Yes, there was a view of the lagoon from the balcony, and the air conditioning units. Room was really clean, comfortable bed, amazing shower which was the saving grace. Biggest problem was the noise. Airlie is a young persons party town. When the revellers stopped at two or three in the morning,... More
