Blue Horizon Resort Apartments
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Our room was spacious and clean with beautiful views out to sea from the balcony, the staff were very friendly and helpful, a short 5-10 minute stroll from the main street which meant it was lovely and quiet. Steep slope or stairs to access the hotel, so not so good for the less mobile, but this was no problem for us. Looking forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view.

This beautiful hotel over looks the start of the whitsundays. Great veiws ,with great rooms that are very roomy . Its a quite family friendly hotel that will not loose my business . We always stay here on our trips to Airlie beach. In the lobby you will find a number of booklets of what to do. We have done day trips out to some islands . day dream island the first time around . then the next one was hamiltion island followed by white haven beach,which all is just breath taking . there are so many things you can do. its just having the time (and money) . its a 2 min drive from the main street with the shops and where you will find all the booking take place for the day trips. There is a back pakers pub that does a great feed and is good entertainment . theres a few places to get a feed from that are good.

Room Tip: The penthouse is the best by far (of course )

I had read the reviews on here before I travelled. I am particular about cleanliness, not worried about hotels being 4-5* just so long as they are clean. This hotel exceeded my expectations. I don't have Children, but these are extremely kid friendly, lots of space with a couple or pools just below our room. The room itself was extremely spacious, 2 bedrooms, 1 double bed, 2 twin beds, a large sitting room with dining space and a kitchen and a bathroom with a good working shower. Don't expect 5* facilities but you can be assured the rooms are clean and makes for a pleasant stay. If you have difficulty walking then perhaps consider a hotel a bit closer. It's a good, easy, safe 15 minute walk down the road to the main hub of Airlie beach and restaurants. There is also a steep hill to walk up when going back up to your rooms via the car park. There is a lift once in the hotel/car park. There is a balcony and a view overlooking the water but there is a lot of building/construction going on everywhere in Airlie right now. The local press is reporting that local shops are disappointed that it is effecting trade as tourists can't easily access shops - but once this is all finished it will be a huge improvement I hear. There is a Thai restaurant at next doors hotel which is great and also when you walk toward main Airlie (Shute Harbour Road) you must try Fish Divine - also a great place to eat. If you're doing a sailing trip save a good 45-60 mins to walk down to the Harbour - it's not a short walk from this hotel. Also I didn't know this; so may be a helpful tip to you; if you are sailing you need to go to the travel shop on shute harbour road to register your details on the computer 24hrs before. Back to the hotel, if you do use the Kitchen facilities there is a local shop (walk past fish divine) and also an off license. I would stay here again if I was visiting the whitsunday islands. Also Reception were extremely helpful - helped store our bags for a couple of days too.

Room Tip: We overlooked the water and our room was great.

We stayed here for 5 nights on a Groupon deal. Room very comfortable, clean and spacious. The views from balcony were lovely and the daily afternoon visit from the local cockatoos was a highlight. Weather and time meant we didn't get to use the pool or facilities but looked great. Staff on reception desk very friendly and helpful, nothing is a problem for them, they booked all our tours and offered advice. Good location, easy walk into town, parking good. Enjoyable and memorable stay.

The staff were happy to help you with anything that requires you to have a great stay.
Everything was close,just a nice short walk down to the street.Shuttle bus picks you up at the front door so you can go and experience the different areas around like catch the ferry across to the islands.

I stayed at the property for 2 days, i was on business in Airlie Beach. The place is very spacious with great ocean outlook. I commend the staff for their helpfull and welcoming attitude. I liked the peacefull rear gardens and the waterfall. Great working on the balcony with an easy broadband connectivity and magnifcient Whitunday views. I am planning on coming back for a holiday with family early next year.

Room Tip: On my own, but i booked a pemthouse, what the heck, we only live once ?
