The reviews before me are quite descriptive and consistent with my experience. I booked directly with the island for a 3 night package from January 11th. It was really great. Myself, hubby and our 16year old son stayed in an KIng bed island suite as it could accomodate the 3 rd person with a single bed.A welcome bottle of bubbly was in an ice bucket...how nice! We faced the private guest only pool and were happy with this. The boat transfers were smooth both directions. We did the reef cruise package and of course enjoyed this. Nice that we had a shorter travel distance to the reef.....picked on way. The inclusions makes it a sensible choice to stay overnight. The stinger suits, glass bottom boat, umbrella and chairs, kayaks, windsurfers are complimentary for overnight island guests.
When the day trippers leave it feels bizarre to have the island with so few others! It makes one feel so special.The 5 pm fish feeding, 5.30pm complimentary bubbly and beer, 8pm star gazing and 9pm walk are all fun. I seriously recommend the croc show....this is extra but wow it was worth it.
The breakfasts were good and at lunch there is a bit of choice from the daytime takeaways. Our son preferred the room dining menu ( especially spaghetti bol..) so we ordered from this "menu" in the restaurant... so it was flexible.
The staff are friendly and helpful. We would definately recommend this island. It was a real holiday treat.... in between staying at Cairns and Port Douglas. Just a short boat trip there!
