Base Airlie Beach is a good place, but could be an awesome place. The staff is helpful, the rooms are big, the beds are good and new, and the infrastructure is great. But there are a few things that need improvement, like the curtains. The ones in my bedroom were dirty and full of something that looks like a bug's egg. Disgusting. Why not use blinds? It is also easier to clean.
The air conditioner was functioning, but it was old and broken. The shower was also old; the closet had no hangers... Simple things that could make things better to guests.
