When I booked this resort, the reviews were fairly positive, and I was really surprised at how reasonable the rates were. Just before we left home, I looked up some more recent reviews, and some were so negative I was a bit concerned. I needn't have been! As a family we had a spa suite and studio suite. Normally studio... More

Boathaven is located a 7 min walk form the main st of Airlie Beach where you can buy food, the room has a good kitchen. There is a balcony with... More

Pleasant accommodation within walking distance to the main stretch of restaurants, shops and pubs. Second floor Studio Apartment was spacious enough for two adults and a travel cot. Small kitchenette with basic amenities, and a balcony with small table and two chairs made it comfortable for a few nights. It was clean, but abit dated (especially the bathroom), but I... More

We had a two bedroom family room, which was an excellent size for 5 people. The rooms themselves were tidy and clean, although a little tired. The pool was excellent, and the BBQ area was nice to eat in. The wifi was the worst I've come across in a long time ( slow and very patchy) and if you rely... More

The only redeeming feature of this hotel (you cannot by any stretch of the imagination call this a spa) was Carla in reception. Carla was very pleasant and helpful. My room still had the last occupants rubbish in the bin in the bathroom and it took 24 hours to get it removed. All the crockery in the cupboard was dirty... More

stayed four nights in a one bedroom spa apartment. The apartment was clean and tidy with everything needed for a short self-catering holiday. It had ceiling fans as well as two air conditioners. We didn't use the balcony spa bath as the pool looked more inviting. The apartments are on a main road with some road noise if you have... More

The hotel has a nice pool and BBQ area. It is conveniently located across the road from the port and coach stop. Only 5 min walk to the shops. However, our room was meant to be a suite but it was dated and a bit shabby. There were ants in the bathroom and kitchen. The view from the balcony was... More
