My wife and I celebrate her birthday on the island. It turned out to be a memorable experience. We loved everything on the island. The lagoon was amazing. We saw wildlife very close to us like turtles and their nesting, huge manta rays and many types of tropical fish. The food was very good and abundant. Breakfast and dinner were... More

This is a fantastic place!! I am sure you have read many of the other reviews and they are all very positive as is this one. But what sets this resort apart from many others is the following. 5 of us visited Dec 26-29, 2015 and saw manta rays, turtles both in the water and giving birth on the shore... More

Recently spent 2 nights at the island, what an awesome experience. The snorkelling was fantastic, snorkelled with turtles in the lagoon & an abundance of colourful fish & coral, but my highlight of snorkelling was the Manta Rays...Wow that was an experience. I felt safe all the time snorkelling in these waters. Apart from snorkelling, the accommodation was excellent, food... More

We stayed on the island for two nights and although the accommodation is basic, it blends in with the island as an eco-resort. The food selection was great and drinks were very reasonable in the bar. The staff were all really friendly and so passionate about the marine life, it was infectious and fascinating. We were very fortunate to see... More

Just returned from our third visit to Lady Elliot Island and it did not disappoint. Fantastic snorkelling off Coral Gardens and the Lighthouse each day we were there. It is always weather dependent, but there is a range of activities to engage people with a variety of interests. The restaurant serves up a great variety of quality food in their... More

I was fortunate enough to visit the Island with a friend and her children visiting from Germany. I have nothing but praise. The staff are extraordinarily and the resort manager gets involved with all aspects of the resort. I snorkelled with 5 Manta Rays and was the best experience ever. I can't wait to return

The animals are the highlight here. We snorkelled over beautiful and plentiful reefs with abundant sealife including eagle rays, sharks and turtles. The staff are all fantastic. Food great. Rooms are ok, beds ok, showers a bit hopeless but it's clean and tidy & this location isn't about amenities. We will be returning in winter in the hope we see... More

We stayed for 5 nights in the the Eco hut. The hut was very basic but was not a problem. They provide complimentary reef shoes, snorkel gear and a glass bottom boat. The reefs are amazing and with three different ones if the conditions aren't good in one there is the others. We saw heaps of turtles and one day... More

Family holiday enjoyed by all. We spent 5 nights which was perfect to explore the island and surrounding corals. Scuba diving was awesome with good visibility at 20 meters. Snorkelling added more discoveries with an incredible array of marine life. Food was good and staff were friendly and informative.
