This experience told me everything I needed to know about the hotel. Recently booked a family trip to the hotel directly on the hotel website totally convinced I was doing a reservation and not prepaying the holiday. When I saw my credit card balance the next day I noticed they

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay on the island. The island suite was really nice, spacious, clean with great kitchen and balcony etc . The resort staff were very friendly too. Our only couple of gripes was: the awful sewage smell around the resort rooms. At times it was

Absolutely stunning location. Amazing snorkelling straight off the beach. Great friendly crew on the ferry. Our room stank of urine. Tried to call reception to address issue but call went unanswered so we just dealt with it. (Our room was a long way from reception). Cleaners

We spent five nights at Fitzroy Island Resort, having opted for the King Suit, a big room with kitchen and a fantastic view on the sea. Our stay didn’t start well, since the room toilet had not been cleaned. We suddenly went to the reception to complain and they immediately sent

Stayed 2 nights on Fitzroy Island in a 1 bedroom suite. The rooms are on 3 levels in a long building just back from the beach which means that if you are at the far end, as we were, there is quite a walk from the main part of the resort to the room - not a problem for us, but

Hello. I’m sorry we’ve just returned from 3wk holiday & stayed in so many places that I can’t remember the beds at Fitzroy. I can say that it is important to book an oceanview suite - you will have such a stunning outlook from bed & lounge room that it will make up for beds if they aren’t great. It is very nicely furnished Don’t book studio suite - there is no outlook or balcony (they face hillside), & they also often have mouldy smell from being closed up all the time. Fitzroy Island is beautiful

What about travel to island
We had boat transfers included in the accommodation but just go to Cairns wharf for the twice daily boat transfers. Day trips are available but not sure of prices.

"island suites are great on 2nd floor"
"May need to pay premium to guarantee ocean view."
"Pay that little bit extra for a room on L2 on the south side, quiet and corner suites have fabulous views"
"Ocean view room on third floor - if lower you hear people walking above"
"spend the day only and stay in Cairns"
