Ferry ticket price was ridiculously expensive, terrible service by staff out to rip you off, disgusting facilities, room looked like a cabin from a horror film, "luxurious" pool looked like it had never been cleaned. Ruined our stay in Airlie Beach.

The kitchen was filthy and the bathrooms weren't... More

We booked it as part of a package with Peter Pan so hadn't done our research. It's basically a hostel which would be fine but... This was terrible - rooms were so basic... More
