Great apartment in a small hotel.Emily was exemplary in helping us sort our onward trip out after we missed a flight. She sorted new flights,check out, hire car return within about 15 minutes whilst we were panicking! She was really knowledgeable about local excursions and we booked a couple of trips to Whitsundays and Crocodile safari which we thoroughly enjoyed....

These apartments are in a first class position and only a few minutes walk from the busy main street where all the bars and restaurants can be found. We stayed for 12 nights and found that if you stay for more than 8 nights, breakfast was available at no extra cost. Breakfast is on a continental basis which we found...

The Receptionist (I think her name is Emma) is excellent, she went out of her way to make us welcome, was friendly & professional. She booked our Reef Tour without a hitch in super fast time. The apartment was large, with great views over the ocean, the king bed very comfortable. Air conditioner worked well. I see bad reviews but...

The accomodation is quite dated but it's in a great location near the main strip in Airlie. Close walk to the lagoon and the beach plus all the shops for supplies. However, the pool is heated after 6pm (or around then) and it's unbearable to swim in the 28 degree heat. It was cooler and more comfortable to sit out...

Stayed here for a week 2 bedroom apartment bit over priced for the age of the building. But the staff very helpful and friendly. The views are stunning looking over the ocean from the generous size balconies. The 2 pools very pleasant to laze in on a hot day and you can rest your head on your folded arms and...

This hotel is located across from the Woolworths.... and it is an easy walk from the down town area..... at the bottom of the hill.... and there are stairs so you don't have to struggle walking up the hill.....(most spots in Airlie Beach are up very steep hills and walking can be difficult) We took advantage of the infinity pools...

Every year my sisters and I have a weekend together. There is 5 of us and we decided Airlie beach would be our destination this year. Waters Edge Resort is a 5 minute walk to the Main Street of Airlie. The rooms are above basic and have a nice view, they are self contained if you wish to cook. The...

expensive but dirty place even in the room, no entertainment or restaurant as they claim. The complex is far away from the centre of the City. The complex is noisy during the day and at night because it is on the corner. There is small parking facilities but not for a 4X4,

Still staying here as i write this review. This place is up a hill which while pushing a 4 year old in a stroller a couple of times a day has given me calves like Lance Armstrong. Ocean views maybe but it's not exactly close at all to the water. The pools are nice and the rooms are adequate at...
