Stayed here for a few days and it was fantastic. Colleen and John are so friendly and loved the rooftop spas. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here, I know I'll be back for sure. It is within walking distance of all the best bars, restaurants and beaches

A really nice stay. No complaints. The owner took us up to the room and everything was clean and tidy. The wet edge pool was beautiful. So close to everything and a really good price. I would recommend other people to stay there. View isn't as nice because of the Port of Airlie but much nicer than my everyday view.

We cant add much to the previous reviews, this is a professionally run establishment with friendly staff yet with a sense that they run a tight ship. SInce we were travelling with two children we felt secure and homely.
The google earth image I assure you is very misleading as what is pictured as a large hole is now a green park and remarkable new marina with shops and eateries.
We had a large two bedroom apartment with separate rooftop area with a spa and dining table.
The spa was a treat in-itself.
This gave us a massive amount of space for less $$ compared to having to rent two rooms on one of the islands (as most rooms on the islands are restricted to max 3 occupancy due fire regulations)
So plenty of room for the kids to find their own space to chill/text/social media after a days activities. Wifi was variable but managment are aware. The kids undertook a scuba course at a local school so we initially booked for 6 nights. We extended our stay as we felt relaxed and at home.
A (luxury) home away from home in a locale that was safe enough for kids to wander into town, a good view that you didn't have to climb to the point of exhaustion to enjoy...the day-trips provided a smorgasbord of eye candy anyway! A helpful supply of DVDs from the front office on the nights the kids were tired.

The road noise is the only negative, but a fair trade-off for having an ice cream parlour, bottleshop, dominos pizza and rum bar within 120 seconds stroll of the front door!

Thank you, Colleen and John for our lovely week at Portside Whitsunday. It was perfect.

The apartments are in a great location, a short stroll from the shops, restaurants, lagoon and bus stop with no steep climb involved.

Our apartment, No.10 was situated on the top floor, with an amazing view and its own private terrace and jacuzzi. The apartment was spotless and furnished to a high standard throughout.
The pool was gorgeous, perfect temperature and cleaned regularly.

Colleen gave us a warm, friendly welcome and both her and John were always willing to help and advise us whenever we needed them.

We enjoyed the trips that Colleen recommended, Manta Ray Diving and Crocodile Safari .

We hope to return to Airlie Beach, and will definitely stay at Portside Whitsunday again.

We had such a great experience staying at Portside Whitsunday during our recent girls trip to Airlie Beach. The location relative to the shops and lagoon was perfect, no hills to climb & the managers of Portside, Colleen and John, were welcoming and helpful during our entire stay. Our apartment was also spotless and everything was in working order. Having previously stayed in February, I am now assured that the standards and service at Portside Whitsunday are consistent and dependable. Huge thanks to Colleen and John for another fantastic stay, highly recommended!
