“Great Spot”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Would be lovely in summer, as we were there in winter the water was very cold.
Given that the beach at airlie is not suitable for swimming this is ideal

“it turned out, just right”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Airlie Beach is a town in the making right now, but what is there to see and do is unique. Worth staying and to enjoy

“A Bomb Site”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This review is of Airlie Beach main street rather than the lagoon. The lagoon was OK but being winter we did not swim or stay there very long. Would be very popular in the summer. A lot of foot traffic through the area as the main street was basically impassable.
I thought the concept of using prime beachfront parkland for car parking was long out of date but not here.
To the main street - a bomb site. I pity the poor retailers. You could see that quite a few had gone broke. I think we were told that the road works had been going on for 12 months and still had 3 or more to go. The incompetence of the local Council and their design consultant is mind blowing.
My suggestion - don't go until the road work is well and truly finished.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Great for kids, adults and birds. It's a bit cold at the moment (July) but this lagoon is great for relaxing by and swimming in when you get a bit hot.

“Beautiful pool. Excellent for Families.”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Great pool. Cold in July but kids fine with that.
My supply of coffee from Mr Bones Cafe just a hop skip and jump away. Unfortunately they are closed today!!!
Pool and grounds brilliantly maintained.
Toilets basic and no seats just a bowl.
Lovely outlook.
