We arrived spot on 2pm, our check in time, only to be told that the room wasn’t ready as it was still being cleaned. After an hour’s wait, we got into our room ready to unpack but found a number of points which were not in line with their claim to be a 5 star resort. Curiously, inside the apartment,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Marina Shores. The rooms are clean and spacious and there's plenty of room on the balcony for everyone to enjoy the fantastic view. It was quiet and peaceful and the pool was great. You can walk into Airlie Beach town via the boardwalk, about 20-25min, or via the main road which is about 15-20... More

Perfect accomodation for couples ,friends or families . Beautiful outlook from spacious balcony . Own friendly resident cockatoo ! Very clean, beautifully furnished and comfortable apartment . A short stroll from the busy hub of Airlie beach via an Oceanside Boardwalk and very close to the lovely shops and restaurants at the marina.

stayed in room 132, absolutely stunning uninterrupted views of the marina, and close to the pool. A little out of town, but only takes 20mins to walk with beautiful scenery to keep you entertained, otherwise only $10 in a taxi. Pool is beautiful and rarely did we share it with anyone else. Would definitely recommend!!!

Great place to stay. Very tidy and service was sensational. Stayed there the night before my wedding and was very impressed by the room and the facilities. Stayed in the 2 bed penthouse and the view was great overlooking the water.

We have stayed in many of the local apartments, but none have come up to Marina Shores. We have been disappointed in the rest but not so here. Pleasant surrounds. Great views. Friendly staff. All in easy reach of Cannonvale and Airlie Beach. One of the best in our books!

Marina shores apartments are a great place to stay if you're looking for a spacious, fully self catered apartment. The rooms are very modern and clean, most with water views. The pool is beautiful and very large, although if you have small children be sure to pack the floaties as there is no 'kiddie pool'. If you aren't bringing a... More

Excellent place to stay. It is out of the backpacker scene. Very clean and modern, everything you could want. Great in room spa and pool. Very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend. Will return when I can.

The rooms are very well appointed... the kitchen has everything. The kids loved the huge pool. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony taking in the... More

Having stay at the peninsula, which is directly beside marina shores, we were expecting the same amazing 5* apartment as advertised. Gosh what a shock. We paid $400 a night for a two bedroom spa penthouse. The spa is a teeny tiny bath that only a 10 year old would fit in. Grouting coming off with ants crawling all over... More
