Stayed here for the Country Music Festival, perfect location for this event as it's right across the road from the hall. The included car hire meant we could explore the island during the day. Friendly helpful staff, really close to the shops , cafes etc. Lovely views to the ocean and pleasant gardens.

The resort was fully booked for the Bounty Celebration week so some friends in the group of 17 were allocated Studio Unit accommodation. These units which would accommodate children well are attached to the spacious and beautifully appointed appartments when a two bedroom appartment is booked. Studio Units are too cramped for two people to cater for themselves comfortably for... More

Dear Ailsa, Thank you for your comprehensive review of Fantasy Island Resort. Granted our studio apartments are not as spacious as our one-bedrooms, and when made up with twin beds, there is less room than with a king bed. We would have been happy to upgrade you and your sister to a one-bedroom, but as there was none available, we... More

My husband and I have always wanted to visit Norfolk Island and as we love Country & Western music we chose to visit in the May when it was on. My husband would also be celebrating his 80th birthday that same week. We dealt with the Information Centre who recommended Fantasy Island Resort as it was just over the road... More

Holidays can be superb or disappointing, depending on your accommodation, and booking via internet can often be a big let down, but this was not the case with our choice - FANTASY ISLAND. Forget the big hotels where you are just another short-stay tourist and stay with 'family', where smiles abound and help, when needed, is a pleasure, not a... More

This medium sized property is well located at one end of the main town shopping strip. It’s a comfortable, level walk to most shops, cafes etc. and the Bowling and Leagues Clubs although the RSL may be a bit too much of a walk for some. The resort entry is just across the road from the local Tourism Office and... More

Glad that I chose to stay at Fantasy Island Resort for 7 days, including a weekend. Host Sharon told me that the Saturday and Sunday markets right opposite the Resort had excellent local produce for sale and must not be missed. I listened to Sharon and was at the markets at opening times (Sat.7.30am and Sun.8.00 'ish') to pick up... More
