“Best value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Celebrated daughters wedding here on 20th October 2012. Toni was very helpful with the reception. Nothing was too much trouble. The wedding meal was delicious. Well done chef!!. Everyone of the guests I spoke with said the same thing. Just awesome! A huge thank you to all staff at Shingley Beach. Accommodation was best value too. We had two 3 bed apartments next door to each other., and friends the room along . Ideal for family get togethers. The view was just stunning. The host John was friendly too. We will return.

Room Tip: Back room apartments for wonderful views.

Great apartment, tucked away from the main street of Airlie but great for a base if going on any reef tours. Great views of Abel Point marina, nice just watching the boats come and go. Easy boardwalk stroll into town or Cannonvale. Pools/BBQ area clean and user friendly. Quiet spot but not far from anything, nice park out front. Service was prompt and there if needed, but we were happily left alone. Apartments have everything you need, comfy beds, great for family of 4. Would stay here again, might try the 2 level 3 brm apartment for the best views ever!

Great large clean rooms ideal for families! Nice view and only a short walk to the shops. Very quiet location. We will definitely be staying here next time we visit Airlie Beach. The price was very competitive there wasn't a minimum number of nights we had to book in for like several other places we looked at.

This is a fabulous location for anybody either wishing to go to the Whitsundays or just relax and enjoy the mainland. A lovely decked walk to Airlie Beach walking along the marina. Coffee stops, and restaurants along the way. Perfect spot and very quiet away from the busy nightlife at the same time.The only negative was no lift and quiet a lot of stairs, no suitable for unfit people.

Room Tip: All rooms have fantastic views.

Thank You for your review. The resort has one lift which services the Front pool area, disabled unit and the Wedding Reception / Conference Venue , situated outside the ground floor reception office . From the rear car parks most units have one/ two flights of stairs.

A good value property in a great location close to Able Point Marina with great views of the boats and the islands in the distance.

Rooms are clean and well maintained and we would certainly stay here again.

We stayed at Shingley Beach Resort for 4 nights. Found the apartment to be of a high standard and very clean. After looking at the position of some of the accomodation this was perfect. Probably a 15 minute walk either side to the shops and the township of Airlie Beach.
The staff was friendly and helpful when booking tours. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed @ Shingley Beach for 4 night in August 2012, at the end of our Australian tour.
The rooms are very comfortable, with all necessary facilities and services
We also had a room with an outstanding view on the beach.
The swimming pools are small but we were the only guests there...it almost looked like our private pool (we spent half a day there to relax at the end of our excursions)
The only minor issues are the distance from Airlie Beach center if you don' like to walk (it's a beautiful 20 minutes walk on the beach) and the courtesy of the Manager, that is not an extremely friendly person...
Thumbs up for all the rest!
