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

My partner and I stayed 2 nights at Montes this week, we really wish it was longer! Kath, Chris, Gus, Sarah, Ben, Joey, Hannah, Sophie & Pauly - Thank you all so much for some great memories! After reading the previous reviews, the cabins are now all modified and done up, beautifully presented, fully furnished, 4 steps to the sand,... More

This place has special memories for me and my family after holidaying here for over 25 years. We have just returned from 10 days spent in unit 2 and 3 enjoying the spacious units steps from the beach. The units being air conditioned, and the beds were particularly comfortable. Katherine and Chris the managers are always so welcoming and happy... More

I reviewed Montes some time ago but recently revisited Montes twice with interstate visitors, each time for a relaxed lunch. On each occasion, the journey to this remote spot was well worthwhile – it is such a stunning spot, with the restaurant adjacent to the white sandy beach and turquoise Whitsunday waters. On one occasion I chose a delightful Coral... More

My husband and I found Montes while we were waiting for Cyclone Ului to blow in, back in March 2010. To kill some time we went for a drive up the coast from Airlie Beach and just stumbled across this little paradise on the beach, called Montes Reef Resort. We sat in the bar for a few drinks before heading... More

Over the years we have seen many improvements and each year we look forward to seeing the new additions and ongoing refurbishments. The managers Chris and Catherine... More

We had heard of this resort by word of mouth and whilst the accommodation is a little dated it’s a very beautiful place to be. If you are looking for 5 star luxury this is not the place to go. If you are happy with basic facilities this is defiantly the place to stay!! The surroundings are beautiful with a... More

We went up to Montes Reef Resort for a few days getaway after a friend had told us about it. Firstly, let me start off by saying - the location is magical. The chalets and restaurants face a lovely sandy beach - blue waters and wonderful wildlife. Whilst we were there we were able to view stingray's and dolphins less... More
