Lee stayed for for a relaxing weekend away and was very impressed with the room and the view was exceptional! We will definitely return to this resort next time we decide to have another relaxing weekend

My last stay with this Hotel was in the late 1980's.There has been many structural changes since,best of all the restaurant /combined pool area with total unrestricted views of the ocean and islands,just a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast and indeed dinner. Our 1'st floor garden apartment had the most terrific view of the water and anchored yachts,well serviced daily,only... More

For a 4 1/2 star resort we expected it to not lack the basic amenities. Really nice room with great view of the bay but often lacked hot water and I was informed the wifi "works in the common areas" but not necessarily in the room.

You cannot beat it for the view, particularly if in a Coral Sea Suite. Rooms are appointed well although a touch dated, nothing dramatic just cosmetic things. The restaurant area at poolside is excellent and there are many different areas to simply sloth and watch the boats come and go. The food in the restaurant is excellent, portion size very... More

Located right next door to Abel Point Marina & looks out over the bay in Airlie Beach. Very nice & comfortable resort. Tropical breakfast & wifi included for $230.00 per night when i phoned up from outside. Will definately stay here again as it has a full length bath that allows you stretch out full length whilst watching T.V.

Beautiful ocean views at this resort and staff friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and check-in was efficient. Breakfast was in a lovely spot with ocean views. Location was terrific for views and walking distance to everything. Best thing was location

The location was perfect for us; just a short stroll into town and not steep. The views of the ocean and sunsets are stunning. Staff are friendly and really helpful. Beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. We had garden view room and were envious of those with an ocean view. The Bicentennial Walk goes right past the front... More

Pleasant and helpful checkin staff, nice room, well appointed and complete with ocean view and balcony. Fashion shop on site plus transfer and tour information. The hotel / motel is spot on. The restaurant and their dishes are outstanding! The chef or chefs are true professionals, we were not expecting this level of skill in Airlie Beach, let alone with... More

On arrival the staff were very friendly, welcoming & efficient. The room was amazing with a beautiful view. I will be back again to relax in the hammock and spa. Thank you for the relaxing break I was hoping for.

I stayed at Coral Sea Resort for three nights on holiday recently. We chose this resort largely based on reviews I'd read here. I can see why it has been reviewed favourably, but our stay certainly wasn't without a number of issues and there is definitely room for improvement at this resort. I wasn't completely impressed with my experience and... More
