Stayed in a Villa on the second floor of the front complex. Not much of a mariner view due to the plants/shrubs beside the balcony. Staff are helpful and go out of their way to help. Extra supplies are charged, towels (would expect this at a backpackers), extra bathroom supplies like toilet paper and shampoo. They even charge you $30... More

Like most self contained apartment accommodation on the east coast of Australia, our apartments are not serviced daily unless you are a guest for a long stay. Our apartments are made up with linen and towels as well as a ‘starter pack’ of consumable items and complimentary tea/coffee/milk. However, because they are self contained it is up to the guest...

We stayed at Shingley Beach Resort in early Mar 14. The appartments are located in a quiet area close to the marina, and provide a great base for visiting Airlie and the Whitsundays. You will probably need a car to make getting around easier or use public transport / taxi. Airlie itself seamed to be geared mainly for backpackers and... More

There are a number of resorts like ours which have been terraced to obtain the best views for guests. it is better to book trips out to the reef and islands once you have arrived , we operate a full tour desk and are...

We met family from interstate in Airlie Beach and Shingley Beach Resort was one of the last places available that suited our needs for a 3 bedroom self contained unit. We weren't sure what to expect when we got there but found that from the second we got there, any worries we may have had were completely unsubstantiated. On checking... More

Beautiful views, large clean and spacious rooms, salt water pools (that is a HUGE plus for us). The staff were amazing and very helpful.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Loved the view, the pool and the rooms. Great that it was self catering with everything you need. Would stay at front rooms next time with no hill to climb! Unfortunately not very close to any restaurants.

We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 1/2 year old and 12 month old. The rooms were cool and clean with a self contained kitchen - it was equipped with everything we needed, dryer and washer. The pools were lovely and a clear 'selling' point for us. We loved that it was across the road from a beach and... More

Clean establishment with lovely view. good air-conditioning and fans. comfortable beds and linen. Steep climb to apartments (rather ask for apartment lower down). Average service. I would have thought that they would at least supply toilet paper for the amount you pay per night.

Lovely little place to rest and recuperate after a Whitsunday boat trip! Our standard studio was well equipped and really comfortable. View from balcony across Abell Point marina very pleasant. Staff really friendly and made for a more personal stay. Two pools are a nice touch and guest laundry free to use. Only downside is the walk into town which... More

We stayed for five nights in a studio apartment. It had a good size balcony overlooking the Able point marina, excellent if you are doing a jetski tour or travelling out to the islands on the ferry.
