We booked accommodation at Downtown Airlie, transfers both ways from Mackay airport and a boat trip on the Whitsundays Adventurer (operated by Explore Whitsundays) through Whitsunday Bookings and the service from start to finish was excellent. I've grown accustomed to the service in Australia, especially where there's a lot of backpackers, to assume you're a bad customer until you prove otherwise. Not at all with these guys who could kill you with kindness. Andrew picked us up from the airport with an esky of complimentary cold drinks and delivered us and our luggage to Tina at Whitsunday Bookings which is the Downtown Airlie office. She offered to look after our luggage while we went on the boat and gave us lots of local information. On the return from our (AMAZING) boat trip we were given the keys to our apartment early where we had air con in both bedrooms and the sitting room, a good shower and a decent kitchen.
I'd forgotten to book our return transfer to Mackay airport and flew into the office the night before panicking I'd left it too late, or that I'd be charged over the odds but Andrew fit us in for the same price as the first transfer and even did a separate drop off for some of us who were staying half an hour out of Mackay for no extra.
All in all, we loved our trip to Airlie Beach and I'd say we were around the right age to stay at these apartments. Would recommend to anyone.
