My wife and I stayed there for two nights, wished it would have been a month :) This place was fantastic along with the hotel staff. Bronwyn and Paul, the mangers couldn't have been more helpful. This place really is a winner, you don't need to go out to the islands.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and we were extremely impressed with the quality of the accommodation, fit out and furnishings. The on site managers were wonderful to deal with making it a great experience. Highly recommend this accommodation in a beautiful bay view apartment.

Lovely beach is right out front but also offers rocks to explore and there are an excellent choice of bush treks with points of history and... More

Spent 3 nights here in a studio apartment. It is situated right on a small sand beach with great views. Despite the resort being busy the room was quiet and the area was peaceful. The room had a comfortable bed with a good-sized shower (no bath). There was both a ceiling fan and air-con. HOWEVER, the cooking facilities were very... More

The Rose Bay Resort is a beautiful spot immediately adjacent to the town of Bowen. Each unit has absolute beachfront views of an intimate little bay which has a gorgeous sand beach and glorious views of Holborne, Middle and Gloucester Islands at the top end of the Whitsundays. If you are lucky you may strike Turtles nesting or hatching on... More

The rooms with ocean views are roomy and relaxing, in a quiet very well maintained property. I stay regularly and find staff very helpful and friendly. Restaurants and takeaways a few minutes drive away.

We stayed here at the last minute based on reviews. Although quite nice with a beach front location, the staff were clearly inconvenienced by our 6pm arrival, were unfriendly and only offered a 1 bedroom instead of cheaper studio apartment, despite the car park being nearly empty and apartments being clearly vacant. For the price, we expected at least an... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. As you can see from all the other reviews, it is very unusually for guest not to enjoy our little bit of paradise. We always offer what rooms are available to walk in guest. Not knowing the date you stayed, I can only presume it was on a Sunday... More
