Whitsunday Terraces Resort
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Good location but that's about it. Apartment was dated and dirty- bed covers and couches had stains. Cockroaches in kitchen. Whole apartment did not feel secure, entry door locked but it felt loose and like a small push could open it. I did not sleep well due to this and other noises during the night. The whole place felt unsafe and I would not stay again. Very overpriced at $150pn. Definitely do not recommend this accommodation.

For the price we paid I probably shouldn't have expected much. The room was clean. But half the blinds to the balcony were missing and the division between separate unit balconies is not very private. The bath room is extremely run down as is the case with most of the building. After taking a shower I noticed that water was running through the wall and over the walkway outside. Good location despite the massive hill climb to the accommodation I would recommend bring some Sherpas lol. Average overall but good enough for a few nights any longer and I would go elsewhere. Also there was no tv antenna cord.

Stayed: December 2012, traveled as a couple

I have used the resort several times and have always been satisfied. My room is always clean, with a queen size bed, kitchenette, air-con, balcony, etc, AND ocean view. Even my friend who lives at Airlie beach was impressed. Everything you need is in walking distance. Look for discounts on particular websites to obtain a room bargain.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the high side over seeing the pool.

Only stayed one night here whilst passing through.. thank god.. I've stayed in airlie beach before and for a bit extra a night you can get much better.. one of the worst places i've ever stayed in.. the bathroom was as ran down as they come, the blinds to the main balcony wouldn't close using the cord and to pull them shut was a fight.. I felt like I was about to break them trying.. the blinds to the small balcony closed fine the only problem was more than 3/4 of the hanging bits were missing so having them shut was pointless anyway.. half the tv channels didn't work and it kept cutting out saying "no signal".. was not game enough to try eating there didn't want to get sick.. overall the place is a dive.. would probably be good for backpackers I guess.. but for your average traveller I'd look elsewhere.. only good thing is the view but everywhere in airlie has that so that cancels itself out.. pool and spa is also ok if not many other people are around otherwise it's way too crowded.. would definitely not stay here again..

Stayed in 6A. Close to car park and reception. Had read mixed reviews for location/accommodation at this resort so entered my room with some trepidation. Was wonderfully surprised. Clean, modern room. Spacious and with a great view from the balcony. Morning coffee overlooking the beach and boats was lovely. Admittedly there was a view of the main street but was not a concern. Bed was comfy, large built-in wardrobe and bath/shower was clean. Small kitchenette with microwave and kettle. Washing up needs to be done and put away, prior to leaving or an extra charge will be incurred (Basic cleanliness makes this a non-issue). Trash needs to be placed in wheelie bins prior to leaving, but honestly is not worth whinging about unless you are really lazy and have huge amounts of mess and trash. If elderly or have medical issues (eg. wheelchair), maybe ask for an apartment close to car park and rubbish bins. Reception staff were pleasant and helpful. Fast book-in was appreciated. There is a Bar and Restaurant at resort. Sadly as it was a bit last minute when I booked, I never realised this until after I arrived and had made alternate dinner plans with friends. Air-con seemed to struggle though. Would return to resort if visiting area again

Stayed here 5 nights as daughter's wedding at Airlie. Great views from balcony but units shabby with stains on carpets, furniture and bed covers. However, Sheets clean and extremely hot water. Friends in adjoining unit had a rat in their kitchen one night. Luckily we only had a huge cockroach that ran out as we came in one night.
We booked as a special deal so I guess you get what you pay for.
Whole resort needs alot of TLC , renovation
and refurbishment.
We are seasoned travellers internationally and disappointed when our tourist accommodation falls short of 'minimum standards' for budget accommodation.

We had 2 nights here before a sailing trip and it was excellent. 1 bed apartment on top floor had incredible views with 2 private balconys, large living room, well equipped kitchen and large comfortable bed. Although the apartments are a little dated/paintwork a little past it's best, it was generally clean, peaceful and comfy. Pool area is lovely-small, but it was never very busy and again views while swimming are fab! Bar is very reasonably priced, perfect for happy hour drinks and to use free wifi. Staff were very accommodating& friendly, allowing us to check in early on arrival and not leave until 3pm on the day our boat departed, even phoning our taxi again to check the original booking when it was a couple of minutes late. 5 minute downhill walk to the good restaurants/bars on the esplanade and importantly a long way from the backpack!
Overall a lovely relaxing stay, enjoying the pool, bar and views.
