Excited to be staying here, and quite disappointed. Wi-fi did not work in our room and it was required for a business meeting - this was one of the main reasons we selected Marina Shores. We spent several hours trying to get this sorted and it took the hotel manager being called. As everywhere was booked out, we were forced... More

I initially called at Marina Shores by phone to enquire about booking a room for the night. I was abruptly told that it was a 2 night minimum stay. I booked it for one night a minute later on the internet. The location is not as close to shops and restaurants as indicated. Its a 20-30 min walk or a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of our fly drive to Northern Queensland. At first slightly disappointed that we were on the ground floor but to be honest it was very private and this was not an issue and it still had a lovely view. The pool area is small, and it is quite a walk into... More

We booked a last-minute stay here to visit the Whitsundays and were delighted with the 2 bedroom penthouse suite on the top floor. The apartment is clean, modern and spacious with all necessary technology and gadgets including a BBQ. There are 2 lovely terraces with incredible panoramic sea views, which really made the stay perfect for us. Also more than... More

We booked to stay at Marina Shores for our honeymoon and we were impressed with the apartment overall. There are a few small things that could be upgraded, however, this is true of any accommodation. We were surprised by the size of the spa in the apartment, though, as we expected it to be big enough for two. The pool... More

We were so surprised when we got through the door as the apartment looked straight out to the sea with a few yachts anchored in the bar, it was stunning! The apartment was stunning too and well appointed. I would suggest asking for rooms 129 to 137 (whole block) as the view across the gardens an the boardwalk beyond was... More

We only stayed a night, and there were 3 couples in one of the very adequate and spacious 3 bedroom apartments. Location is terrific but remember that out past Abell Point Marina you are closer to Cannonvale than Airlie Beach, so theres not much in the way of restaurants close by. We shopped at Woolies (Airlie and Cannonvale) and dined... More

Lovely apartment for a,group of us who needed to be close to marina as we were sailing out the next day. Gorgeous views of ocean as well as Marina. Convenient location to marina and a good walk into town. Really helpful to be able to hire a small car for a couple of hours to move our stuff to yacht... More
