“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2010

My wife and I spend our 15 night honeymoon in this beautiful paradise, we had a one bedroom spa apartment which was everything we hoped it would be. The apartment and staff were fantastic and I would recommend it to everyone, the place itself is beautiful and the town of Airlie Beach is great as well, I would return in a heartbeat. Trevor from Waters Edge is one of the most helpful and wonderful people you would hope to meet. This place is less that 5 minute walk to the main street which has everything you could possible need. If you need to do a big grocery shop catch the bus out of town to Cannonvale about 5 minute bus ride to do your shopping at Coles. Airlie Beach is on the doorstep to all the islands and Great Barrier Reef so catch a boat, book a tour and get out and see the most wonderful place the Whitsunday’s. Book your tours at the travel agency next to Mangrove Jacks in the main street, Vicky is really helpful in there. Also make sure to have something to eat at Fish Devine and have a couple of rums at their rum bar. A trip out on the a sunset cruise on the Sundowner boat is well worth it.

-Few observations:
1.Ants
2.Smelly bathrooms
3.Cleaning/changing towels every 8 days
4.One TV only for two bedroom unit
5.Cold water in the spa(outdoor)
6.Low water pressure in showers
7.Gym poorly equiped
8.No wireless access available in th room as advertised
9.Restaurant ok
10.Bar opens in the afternoon,no expresso in the morning-sorry,go to the town

Just as a small comparison-Palazzo Versace hotel Gold Coast is a 5 star hotel,how did Waters Edge get 4.5 stars?

We had a great time at the Waters Edge. Trevor the Maintence guy was a star (much friendlier than the reception staff). Apartments were spacious and clean. Location 3 minute walk to the heart of Airlie. Only down side was the airconditioning was not cool enough and is set to 24 degrees which in January is way to warm. Also you cannot run the aircon whilst you are away from the apartment. Pool area is wonderful. Would highly recommend.

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. Sensational views over Airlie, close enough to all the action to feel a part of it all, and great apartments. The maintenance guy was awesome - way better at customer service than the front desk boy. The restaurant, Deja Vu, is delicious - you have to try the creme brulee whilst watching the sun set surrounded by balinese lanterns! Our only complaint was our stay was so short - we'll definitely be back.

A great spot close to the main strip ,A good selection of fine food to dine at after a lazy day around the pool or the lagoon ,only a short walk away . Very safe and patroled by lifeguards. Or just sit back on your balcony overlooking the pool and out to the changing colors of the ocean while having a cold drink. What ever you do a great place to do it ,and i for one will be back.,
