My sister had her wedding here and most of us were there for the week. Shingley put on an amazing reception and the beach out the front was for the Ceremony, Thanks to Shingley everything ran smoothly for the bride and the rooms were nice, spacious and tidy.

All in all, I expected a little more but then realised I only paid $150/night. It has all the basics one needs including a reasonable kitchen. My only gripe was the possibility of a $35 cleaning charge if I neglected to empty my bins before leaving and let's face it, not much of a mess would be made after a... More

We have stayed there, on numerous occasions over the last 9 years. The view is the best, it is quiet, the units are comfortable and the choice of pools great. I love the new cafe, bakery in the resort, her pies are and pastries are delicious. We will be back again next year. The new managers are making a big... More

Great location. We had a magnificent view over the whitsundays. A loverly walk along the marina and beach into town. The rooms were a little dated but clean and tidy. The rooms contained everything you would need for an extended holiday. I woulod stay again and recommend to my friends.

This place is certainly not a 4 Star resort and I probably would not really call it a resort, but more a bunch of apartments and a pool. No bar, no restaurant and other facilities that a resort would normally have. It reminded me a bit of being in a motel where you park your car, order breakfast and they... More

My partner and I stayed at Shingley Beach Resort for a week. We have a front apartment facing the gorgeous Marina and loved sitting back most evenings enjoying life going by while we relaxed. The pool is great and was never too busy. The walk into town is gorgeous along the boardwalk with a couple of great spots to refuel!... More

While we appreciate feedback where warranted, it was with great surprise and disappointment that the management read your review.

Google maps places it at 1.1km to the main street (only... More
