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

Whitsunday on the Beach is definitely on the beach! Or, I should say, on the lagoon. The wonderful Airlie Beach lagoon is right in your back yard so I think the location is excellent. Staff is very friendly in this place and were happy to meet our requests. Our room was a pleasure: spacious, nice bed, kitchenette with table and... More

To begin with we were very impressed with the people and our stay. When we checked out of our room we went to do some shopping in Airlie. I realized I had left $150 behind in the unit we were staying in. I rang the lady and told her I had left it behind. She advised me to come back... More

Thank you for your review. As per our phone call we have cctv footage of our whole complex and we have viewed all the footage. The 3rd person you had in your room was the only person to be in the room by himself for a period of time? You may wish to have a chat to him as we... More

The staff were great - We got milk each day we stayed (on arrival but when we run out we asked for more and got given another small carton) - the check in and check out was effortless. The room we were in was pretty spacious for 4 - Room 20? at the top and front of the location and... More

Room 6 & 16 have great views of the lagoon and are quiet. Reception and staff are friendly, informative and accommodating. Room is well kit including the kitchennette and shower has hot water flowing. Beds are new and comfortable. Only complaints are the air con is undersized for the room size and the pillows are uncomfortable.

If there is a small group of you this is much better value than staying in a hostel. The member of staff on reception (Cathy) gave us a lovely warm welcome when we first arrived which was great. The room was spacious, clean, air conditioned and had complimentary tea and coffee. This was a lovely change for us from the... More

This motel served us extremely well for one night before a boat trip, and was excellent value for money. Not only that, but we were a couple and only used one of the THREE beds in the room. If you were a family it would be exceptionally good value. The owner was extremely friendly and welcoming to us and we... More
