The waters surrounding this little gem of an island are teaming with wildlife and every time you put your head underwater there is something new to see. We spent a few nights on this island and wish we had stayed even longer as i know we only got to see a fraction of the marine life there is on offer.... More

The most relaxed week we have ever had which included 5 very special dives and a lot of snorkeling. Manta rays featured on three of our dives with lovely long encounters with these gentle creatures. The professional dive crew, actually all the staff were friendly and hospitable, couldn't do enough for us. The food was always fresh and abundant with... More

The accommodation on Lady Elliot Island is an eco-lodge. Do not go there if you want a fancy resort. If you are happy with simple, comfortable accommodation and a world class natural environment, this is for you. We visited at the end of August 2014 and thought it idyllic. We loved the simplicity of the place. There are no locks... More

This is a must if you are visiting the Great Barrier Reef. While the lodging is basic, it is an eco resort, the food is good and the island is amazing. We say tons of turtles, manta rays, whales, fish, sharks and the reef. We took the snorkle tour and I did a companion dive that I highly recommend. The... More

We decided to go to this island because we thought this was a good spot to do some diving and it was indeed. The diving was very nice and the snorkeling was amazing. We stay at the eco cabins and everything was proper and clean. The dinner buffet was alright, the breakfast was even better. Lunch was not included in... More

We just spent 2 days on the island (my elderly husband, my 15-year old son, and myself). We were very disappointed by the basic accommodation - our supposed 'suite' for which we paid extra was an ugly room with no chairs (let alone armchairs) and not enough space to hang our clothes; and was cold, with no heating, despite the...

Dear Eliza K As we mentioned in our reply to your email, we were disappointed to hear that you experienced less than perfect weather conditions during your stay on Lady Elliot Island. Unfortunately, we can’t predict the weather but one of the advantages we have on Lady Elliot is that the reef is easily accessible from the shore and the... More

Have just spent 6 days on Lady Elliot Island and found it a fantastic place to relax and unwind and enjoy the natural environment of this place. It is certainly not a 5 star resort in the usual sense with luxurious accommodation, spas and boutiques however it does offer amazing coral reefs, sea life, bird life, night skies, peace and... More

This island is magical. The staff is pretty nice. Food is acceptable. Lodgings are pleasant with really nice linens, good water pressure. We were there for five nights, six days at the end of July 2014. Luggage weight limits–the weight limit for luggage on the flight to the island is crazy small (10kg/22lbs), but you can pay $100 for an... More

Just spent 4 nights there. This simple eco-resort meets the mark in so many ways. First I describe the accommodations, then the snorkelling. There is only one place to stay and eat (etc) on the island, so the fact that (1) its food is healthy and varied is important, as is the fact that (2) the accommodations are comfortable (if... More
