We stayed 5 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment with a jacuzzi. The location was fantastic, right near the centre of town and easy walking distance to the Marina where the cruise whitsunday/ transit terminal is to take you to the islands. The staff were absolutely lovely and extremely helpful in every way. Wonderful to have a kitchen so we... More

Portside Whitsunday is a wonderful place to stay. Perfect location close to shops, restaurants, bars, marinas and the lagoon. The view from our apartment was breath taking with a beautiful outdoor pool. The apartments are clean and well maintained, excellent private roof top sauna with a large entertaining area. The managers (John and Coleen) really go out of their way... More
