Granted this place got hammered by Yazi a few years back and is slowly rebuilding. Pool area is lovely with a smaller 20cm pool for kids to splash around in with shade. Sadly the restaurant and bar are not operational and so you will have to venture out for food and a drink. Rooms are basic but clean and have... More

I don't usually put up reviews but this place had me and my partner very impressed. After waiting at the ferry terminal for half an hour for the very unreliable taxi service I rang the hotel and Brian offered to pick us up, drop us to our executive suite as it was a little far walk to with luggage in...

We stayed at the Executive apartment which was nice and spacious. The resort pool is large and newly renovated. The manager was very helpful and offered to pick us up from the Ferry. Magnetic Island itself is a tropical island and is great if you like beaches and bush walking. It also has a fairly accessible nude beach called Balding... More

This is great accommodation and do affordable! I have a really strict budget but have fairly high standards. This place is a slam dunk! I have already recommended my parents stay here when they come to Maggie. We stayed in the executive room. Its a good size well laid out and is very well maintained if a little bit old.... More

Amaroo on Mandalay is conveniently located in Nelly Bay, 2 bus stops from the Wharf ($1.40 pp), you could walk but with luggage the bus was an easy option. There is near by restaurants/cafes, shops, bike hire and a bait shop. Could easily walk to the IGA and car rental place. We arrived late and were greeted by Brian, he... More

We stayed here for two nights as our friends held their wedding reception at the resort. From the moment we arrived, the hosts Brian and Tezeh made us feel very welcome. They were great at helping us with transport options and recommending places to visit on the island. Everything we needed was there and the gardens and wildlife were really... More

Value for money 10min walk from ferry terminal, bus stop directly out front. Clean and tidy rooms with comfortable bed. Spacious, well maintained grounds, pool, tennis courts. Friendly relaxed reception staff. Would revisit and would recommend.

We stayed for a week and wanted more. The service was fantastic and Brian entertained us with stories every afternoon when feeding the kites and kookaburras. So much to see from our accommodation. Lorikeets waiting outside our unit every morning for my daughter to feed. Spectacular views, bus at our doorstep.

Beautiful and tranquil stay, during the stay we have had an abundance of wildlife walk right up to us, the staff are friendly and helpful. The resort has a stunning pool and is only 10 minute walk from the ferry but also has a bus stop directly out the front. We love staying here and highly recommend it to anyone... More
