Best to book for lunch. Always good food and atmosphere. Great view while you are eating and nice beach to have a lazy stroll along the sand. I enjoy watching boats pull in for lunch here. Staff are friendly too.

Amazing lunch and spectacular view. We were really amazed at how beautiful the lunch was, we day tripped from Airlie with the kids and another family. The staff deserve a huge thank you as our youngest daughter forgot her swimsuit and they overheard us and brought over a stinger suit so she could swim. We were so grateful and really... More

Beautiful little hidden away gem. I'm happy to keep it on the quiet because it would be terrible if I couldn't get a booking next time! Restaurant / Bar is lovely right on the beach. Blue winged kookaburras sit right next to you at lunch. The sunset is AMAZING, we had a walk along the beach and looked out about... More

Our family of four finally managed to book this piece of paradise - for our wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed at all! The weather was perfect - this time of year the kids could still swim in the ocean without the threat of jellyfish. My husband could moor our 5.4m fishing boat out 30m from our doorstep - enabling...

Terrible. items went mysteriously missing from the room and housekeeping refused to respond to me when we realised. Still waiting for items to be found and returned. I will never stay here again or recommend to my friends and family.

We stay here once a year in August and always have unit number 8 on the eastern side of the resort. Throughout the year the area in front of our unit has been renovated with lovely green lush grass, fencing, brick pavers, gardens and really beaut Bali type pergola out the front which houses a BBQ, cooking area, power points,...

So we booked 6 months ahead, we expected something far different. However, waking up to that view and dining in the restaurant made it all worthwhile. The room was untidy and moldy but the staff were friendly and everything else was wonderful. The meals were excellent, except the seafood platter which was overcooked, and the boat ramp was in disrepair.... More

we were staying at airlie beach and someone recommended driving here for lunch (be warned lunch finishes at 2pm - not sure if this is everyday - worth ringing and checking. Also you need to book on a weekend - it gets booked out). The location really is spectacular - right on the water. the views are lovely. I was... More
