I am writing this review from Peppers at Airlie Beach, so quite easy to put my shortcomings from Peppers at Magnetic to the test. The hotel is located in absolute close proximity to the ferry terminal, which is great in some ways and not that great in others. There are nice views over the marina on one side of the... More

We spent three nights in this wonderful resort a couple of weeks ago. If we had of realised how peaceful and beautiful Magnetic Island and the resort was we would definitely have booked for longer. The restaurant looks out over the marina and it is an amazing place to start your day with their wonderful buffet breakfast. We ate in... More

My husband & I have just returned from a wedding held on Magnetic Island & stayed at peppers in a 'marina view' studio superior room. The Marina isn't huge but the water views were lovely. The room was very nice & spacious & had a deep bath, big enough for 2. The reception was held in the resturant overlooking the... More

I stayed here for a long weekend getaway with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, but the Peppers architects continue to puzzle me with their layout, design and ultimate execution. First up, the good - The resort looks nice from the outside and is ridiculously easy to get to. When people mentioned walking up to it from the ferry... More

This resort has an amazing pool that wraps the units and most units look over the water (try and get a waterview apartment to avoid looking over the IGA carpark). The rooms are a good size and have everything you need to cook some small meals. The units also have baths and some with swim out options! The verandas are... More

My family (two adults, one teenager) stayed in a two bedroom apartment which overlooked the lagoon-style pool and marina. The apartment was spacious and had full cooking and laundry facilities, which is great for families with smaller kids. There's not much around that part of Nelly Bay except the bus terminal and an IGA store, but the bus goes to... More

Having read purple_pimpernel's review, I feel the need to point out why the prepayment is required. The property, whilst still running beautifully, is in receivership. It's gorgeous, as ever with Peppers. Lovely, simple, breezy design. Fun and beautiful lagoon pool meandering through the complex, another smaller pool over looking the marina, shaded. Our friends had a three br ground floor... More
