This was the perfect place for us to stay while on Magnetic Island. From the moment we arrived to the day we left, staff were friendly, helpful and pleasant. The room was immaculate as well as the pool, lobby, games room and laundry facilities. The room had all amenities that

The ladies on reception are so friendly - they were a great first impression for our first few nights in Australia! The bus will pick you up right outside the car park, and drops you off about 50m down the road. This hotel is beautiful, the grounds are full of plants, trees

Hi Jimmy, I am truly sorry about the issues you experienced with your air conditioner. I would like to apologize for the filter being dusty. We do have a very high standard of cleanliness here at Island Leisure Resort and I will follow this up with housekeeping to find out how this could have been missed. Please accept my sincere apologies. We don't usually have any issues with the efficiency of the air conditioners, we even have some guests ask for an extra blanket, so I am confident they are sufficient to cool the room. On the rare occasion we do have a complaint, it is usually because the glass windows or louver windows have been left open. I will take your comments on board in regard to the key tags. We are always happy to supply extra keys if required, I just wish you had let us know while staying, so we had the opportunity to fix this for you. Kind regards Eileen Nethercott - Manager - Island Leisure Resort

Yes we have a snorkel trail 100 metres out from the beach here at Nelly Bay and the water is calm. You can also book a local boat tour so that you are supervised. Kind regard Eileen Nethercott - Manager - Island Leisure Resort

It is located only 150 m from the supermarket and shops. Cafés and restaurants are within easy walking distance and the island bus stops at our door. We shopped at the supermarket for our breakfast needs.
