“The best in Airlie!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Not only does Martinique have the best view in town but I don't need to go anywhere else to know this is THE place to stay in Airlie Beach. This is why. Our one bedroom apartment had everything we could possibly need. A full kitchen, a washing machine, tumble dryer, a lovely big lounge complete with massive widescreen telly, a very large balcony with a view to die for, great air conditioning plus ceiling fans. Everything was immaculate and I really could've lived here!

The infinity pool was amazing (if a little cold) and when we stayed there were rarely more than a couple of other people using or sitting around it. There was also a bbq which was there for all to use but didn't see anyone doing so. Be aware that if like us you decide to have breakfast on your balcony you may well have a visit from one of the neighbourhood cockatoo's, which didn't exactly help my other halves phobia of birds, it was massive.

Trudy and Gregg really are the nicest people, they let us leave our stuff in our apartment free of charge when we went away on our boat trip for a couple of nights, now that really is service! Although Gregg you were wrong about Uluru, we loved it there, along with Airlie Beach of course!

And yes that hill is steep and could cause problems for those with mobility problems but for the rest of us it's just a quick work out after eating all that fantastic seafood in town.

Anyway, stay here, you won't regret it, I really wish I'd stayed longer!

Dear Iain
Thank you so much for such a positive review! People are going to start wondering if I am paying the guests to write such lovely comments! haha :-)
Yes the cockatoos can be overbearing and they will nick stuff off your outdoor table if left alone!
I told Michael about how you loved Uluru and he laughed. Glad you had a great time there.
Happy New Year!
Cheers
Trudy & Michael

I stayed at Martinique on the weekend with my partner. It was great. The rooms were large and clean and had amazing views from the balcony. There was a fully equiped kitchen and the room had everything we needed. The rooms were also quite and private. The pool is fantastic and had great views during the day and looked beautiful at night.

The managers, Trudy and Michael, were very friendly and we had a bottle of champagne waiting in our room for us when arrived. The resort is at the top of a very steep hill and shows some of the best views in Airlie Beach. It is a bit of a hike when walking up the hill but the views make it worthwhile.

All round it was a great weekend and we will definitely stay here again.

We had everything we needed at these beautiful apartments.
They were really large and often had people over for dinner at night without it being at all crowded.

We were there for our wedding and absolutly loved waking up each day to that spectacular view. The Resort was really peaceful, and most nights it was full. That pool is just spectacular and if you only live in that for the few days you are in Airlie than you are doing alright.

We had other guests from our wedding also staying there, and no one could fault the place.

Highly recommend it for singles/couples or families.

Room Tip: All rooms but 2 have exceptional views. Just tell them you want a room with a view and you wont be p...

Hi Cassie
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review!
Yes you had a lovely apartment with pretty spectacular views!
Most weekends we are full and it is always peaceful and you wouldn't know we were full. It must be the layout of the buildings!
I too love our pool, especially at night with the blue lights!
All the very best for your future!
Cheers

Spent a week there in July and I just cannot wait to go back. The apartment is truly top quality and the views are out of this world with a perfect view of airlie beach. The swimming pool looks like it was taken straight out of someone's dream and the hot tubs are also very relaxing. As if this was not enough, the service was even better. All you could ask for. The owners are warm and really make you feel that the client is king. Turly wonderful people.10/10

My husband and I travelled from Brisbane and we were very impressed with our room, views from every window, we stayed for a week and loved every minute. The pool and spa were fantastic so were our hosts. We will recommend this Resort to everyone we know and look forward to our next stay, this time with the kids.

Me and my partner live locally in the area but wanted somewhere special to stay on the night before and the night of our wedding. The apartment was beautiful with the most amazing view! Trudy and Michael really made our stay special. We would defiantly recommend it, and would love to stay there next September on our first anniversary!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate our 26 wedding anniversary in October.
Our first surprise was a call from Trudy saying that they had upgraded us to a penthouse room which was so exciting. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by Trudy who is extremely friendly and checked in with out any hassles.
Our first appearance of the resort was it is so beautiful and clean, and very quiet. Our room was amazing very open and really clean the view from the balcony was awesome.
Our second surprise was that Trudy and Micheal (resort managers) had put a bottle of champagne in the fridge for us to celebrate our anniversary, this just made our day.
The resort is positioned well in Airlie Beach just a short walk to the main street, where you will find so many places to eat and loads of shops. Be warned it may be a short walk but it is positioned ontop of a huge hill and that walk up is a KILLER !!! If your unfit like me... A taxi ride up the hill only cost $5.
The only complaint we had was that there was some painters on the roof above our room making lots of noise at 5:30am which we weren't impressed with, we mentioned it to Trudy and she was very apologetic about it and was unaware they were there, and was going to speak to the painters.
We would love to stay here again, and I recommend this resort to anyone, Trudy and Micheal
make you feeling so welcome.

Room Tip: Bring you joggers !!!
