We felt welcome from our arrival. Young lady gave us a view of the pool when we realised we originally had a view of the car park. So that's something to ask at time of booking. Our 2 bed room apartment was spotless, no complaints at all. We had dinner and breakfast at the resort, top class. Can't wait to... More

We stayed for two nights at peppers blue during our east coast tour. The Island itself is fantastic and we had a brilliant time (jet skiing, horse riding, koala sanctuary). The Peppers Blue complex is very nice, huge swimming pools (although could be a little cleaner and the bar/restaurant area is very nice also. Staff very helpful and friendly (Charley... More

We had a three night stay here in the off season. The location is very good within seconds walk from the ferry terminal but no noise. The accommodation was of a very high standard and the breakfast was excellent - we were a bit spoilt as breakfast was cooked to order rather a buffet for two of our days. Even... More

Despite being the "off" season, we had a wonderful time, kicked off with an upgrade to magnificent unit with marina views & own plunge pool to boot. Units very comfortable, clean & quiet. The staff made us very welcome & we felt like we had found the perfect place to come to & unwind.We were quite sad to leave. Thanks... More

Despite being only a 20 minute ferry ride from Townsville, when sitting on your balcony in Blue on Blue and looking out at the ocean, you would be forgiven for thinking you were a million miles away on a deserted tropical island. The hotel has a feeling of relaxation and serenity. The apartments are clean and spacious. We stayed in... More

Stayed at Blue on Blue and had an amazing stay. The meal at the restaurant located at the resort was one of the best ever meals and not at all what we had expected to find in North Queensland on an island. Very friendly helpful staff made the stay so memorable. Highly recommended

After a longish drive down the coast and the short ferry crossing finding the hotel could not be easier. A stones throw from the ferry. I was offered an upgrade and no extra cost and that was a superb way to start what was to be a three month trip through Australia. Super staff on reception and in the restaurant.... More

The 2 bedroom apartment had everything we needed and was absolutely immaculate! The staff were very helpful and the food at the restaurant is to die for! The pool is huge and caters for everyone. I would stay again any day!

This is the second time we've stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment. It's just great for the family with huge lagoon pool and plunge pool in the unit. Great Views out to the marina on the back side and front view is the beautiful pool. Spacious, modern, comfortable for 6 with all the amenities we could ask for. We've enjoyed... More
