Although it was a reasonable walk to into Airlie Beach (about 15 mins) it was a very pleasant one along the boardwalk, and meant that the resort itself was nice and quiet. The resort was clean presentable and worth the money paid. We had a small issue with the hairdrier but Nigel sorted this whilst we were out for the day. Apartment was well equipped and had everything we needed. It was clean and the towels were nice and fluffy (nothing worse than scratchy old towels).

We were two groups of 6 people staying in two 3 bedroom apartments. It was great to have the two next to each other. The resort is very conveniently located halfway between a small shopping centre and the lagoon. We didn't have to rent a car. Only negative was the cleanliness of the showers and some dated appliances - one dvd player didn't work, no visible numbers on the oven dials, dishwasher bottom rack broken. We didn't complain about any of these while we were there because we felt that it was overall good value for money. Will stay there again

We were two couples staying in Airlie Beach just for 2 days prior to taking a 2-night boat tour of the GBR. We really enjoyed our stay at Shingley Beach Resort - the owner was very helpful and not only provided advice about the area but opened up early to let us check in at 8:30 am. The apartments are clean, spacious and comfortable. Watch out, the A/C works a little...too well, and it can get very cold at night. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk into town and to where boat tours pick you up. Overall, a great place to stay - quiet, clean and spacious.

We had a long weekend celebrating hubbies birthday. Reception staff were very helpful and talked us through a variety of tours which were available and booked our chosen ones. The studio room was clean, comfortable and a good size, with a good kitchenette with adequate dishes and utensils. Would definately recommend to our friends and would like to come back. Shingley Beach Resort is in a quieter part of Airlie Beach but very convenient for the Marina based Whitsunday Cruises.
Great weekend.

Room Tip: rooms all face the Marina and have a balcony so would leave the choice to reception staff.

The Shingley Beach Resort is a condominium of about 40 individually owned units that are managed and rented out on a short and long term basis. The complex includes two outdoor pools, a BBQ area, washing machines and driers, and an office that has a lot of information regarding activities in and around Airlie Beach.

Our unit (number 30) was a studio overlooking the marina. It was quite clean (see comment below) and had some nice furniture. It contained a TV, dining table, couch and chairs, a small fridge, a cooktop, a good selection of dishes and cutlery and a few pots and pans. The unit was not well lit so reading in the evening was not possible. We had a good sized balcony with table and chairs, and a tremendous view of the marina and the boats coming and going. Wifi is available but we were not able to get a signal unless we went down to the office.

When we arrived in the unit we noticed that the floor (tiled) was not perfectly clean. I spoke to the manager (Nigel) and asked if I could get some cleaning fluid to mop the floor. He was very apologetic and upset that the cleaning staff had not taken care of this. He promised to come up to our unit right away (which he did) and mopped the floor himself. He apologised several times about the situation.

We were very impressed with the management of the complex. Nigel seemed to be ever-present, either maintaining the grounds or in the office helping people. He went out of his way to provide us with weather reports so that we could schedule a snorkeling trip, he also helped us locate a local quilting shop for my wife to visit and provided us with directions several times.

This was our 7th stop on our road trip of the east coast of Australia from Sydney up to Port Douglas and then back to Cairns. Our stay here was only for 2 nights as part of our trip and is where we took our trip to Frazer Island and Whitehaven beach from. We have to say that the location was fantastic. The hotel was very quiet but we put this down to the time of year we were visiting. We found the area of Shingley Beach lovely & quiet and very relaxing sitting on the balcony watching the boats come & go. Nigel was very friendly and more than happy to help If there was a problem. The walk into Airlie Beach and Cannonvale was beautiful.

We have a trailer boat and our family holiday is always geared towards the water where everything is easy and simple and you dont need to get in your car and stock up on all the neccesities for a day out on the water. First of all there is ample parking for your boat and trailer and secondly bait, ice and fuel are all at hand. The views are simply stunning and the Resort is spotlessly clean and with a great on site manager I couldn,t ask for anything more. Beautifull quiet spot with a great park/BBQ area right at your door, right on the water perfect for catching your live bait. Also the pool areas also offer BBQ areas if you dont want to venture any further than your front door. We absolutely love it here and anytime the next fishing adventure calls I always call Shingley Beach as this is my top spot to go. Highly Recommended.
