The rooms have 3 hop up beds and a double, frig, sink, shower room with no ceiling, propeller fan and chiller unit. Nice flat screen tv. Very clean and... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I must admit the artificial grass has made a huge difference at the resort. No need to bring in lawn mowers and whipper snippers, there is never a good time for that racket. We are in the dry tropics and can go for months without rain and it is very difficult... More

We stayed here twice in the Bures and found them to be very spacious and well laid out. The pool was pleasant to relax in and facilities good. The owners are very easy to chat to and plenty of information is available at their desk. Shops nearby and just a short away. Planning to head there again soon.

Pool and barbecue area very well maintained and a great spot to relax. We had thought about hiring a car on the Island but not necessary as the excellent bus service stops right at door of... More

We had a little villa with kitchen and bathroom which was nice. We had an extra 4 single beds in our "queen" room which was a bit of a shame. Good value though, and you can cook yourself instead of going out at every meal, it's very close to the supermarket. We had quite a lot of ants in the... More

Convenience and comfort at your door step. I found this resort most relaxing and peaceful compared to the hustle and bustle of Melbourne. Leisure Island offers a stunning location, metres from the beach, pool, bbq area, spa, games room, snack bar, tennis court, laundry services and a bus service, all in close proximity. The grounds through out the resort are... More

Really pleasant, quiet and comfortable place in great location. Helpful hosts. If you want somewhere to swim, sleep and explore Magnetic Island at your own pace, this is a wonderful spot. The accommodation had everything we needed and nothing we didn't/
