Me and my partner stayed here at the beginning of March in a luxury suit and it was outstanding, it was also even better that it was an adults only retreat, was able to just relax by the pool without being disturbed, i loved the packs supplied in the room for breakfast except i wasn't a fan of the fruit...

This place is absolute heaven, they only have 6 rooms so it's really private and every room has a balcony spa, what more could you ask for :-) Reception staff Carla and Connor were both extremely helpful booking tours and advising on places in town to go for dinner. We will definitely be back....

Stayed here for 5 nights, in the penthouse apartment, which was superbly furnished, the beds were so comfy, and the balcony was superb complete with sofa, dining table, sun lounges and of course the spa. Absolute heaven. Staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended

I stayed at the Waterfront Whitsunday Retreat over the Christmas period of 2013 and was very happy with my choice! Airlie Beach is quite a tourist location and also attracts a lot of backpackers, so for what we paid for this resort over such a hectic period for such a gorgeous room was really fantastic. I love a little taste... More

We stayed here for one night on our honeymoon after a sailing trip on the Whitsundays and it was fantastic. We had a ground floor apartment which was spacious, clean and comfortable with a huge bed! It was an easy walk to town for dinner and we appreciated the complimentary breakfast box as we had an early airport transfer.

great service, great room, great spa on balcony, great overall experience! The location was also close to the heart of Airlie and there was off street parking. Among everything else, there are only about 6 units so it is quiet. I don't recommend any hotels but this is worth a mention!

Our first impression was "wow" and this feeling continued throughout our stay. Layout, design, attention to detail, quality of contents were all first class. Even though we booked through a deal website, we had a room better than expected - with a lovely spa bath on the balcony - a bit hit after a few days on a boat. (although... More

We stayed here in the school holidays with our 2 grandsons. It could not have been better! The 2 bedroom apartment was really spacious and having 2 bathrooms was excellent. A fantastic kitchen with all the things you need. Although the pool was really cold, the boys still went swimming and enjoyed a dip in the hot tub after. Great... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly staff member Shannon, who quickly checked us in & helped us with our luggage. Our room was spacious & very clean with a coffee machine & large TV. A wonderfully comfortable bed ensured we had a restful sleep before heading off to explore the local area which was only a short walk... More

When we arrived nobody was there to greet us. We had to call a number and someone came around the corner straight away. The guy was friendly enough but did not show any skills in hospitality service. He didn't offer a hand with the luggage at all what you would expect in any decent hotel in the world. We had... More
