“Wonderful adult family holiday”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

My son and his partner came from Amsterdam and their friends from London to see the New Year in in Airlie Beach. We had a 2 bedroom ocean view and a 1 bedroom apartment. The two br had a hot tub on the very large balcony overlooking the ocean and the apartment had everything you could possibly need. The design was perfect for two adult families in that the bedrooms and bathrooms were separated from each other by the living area so we each had our own space. The resort is one of the highest overlooking the coral coast so a nice breeze was felt on the balcony making it a lovely place to entertain or read or soak in the spa.

Room Tip: All the ocean view rooms are set back from one another so that you do not have other people on the b...

Great hotel. Nice and large rooms. Hotel is located on top of a hill, making the view on the sea from the balcony or the swimming pool absolutely amazong. Really peaceful place. Some rooms have jacuzzi, also with the stunning view. Loved it.

My husband & I stayed at pinnacles resort & spa for 7 nights for our honeymoon & have to say we could not fault it! Staff were helpful from the minute we booked in! Our room was amazing, big, clean with a huge balcony with private jacuzzi, outside seating area on our balcony was perfect for soaking up the sun on the sun beds & having a few drinks before heading out for the night. We highly recommend this beautiful 5 star resort & hope we can stay again in the future...We had the most amazing, memorable stay at pinnacles, memories that will last a lifetime!

We just checked out this morning from Pinnacles and I should say we were not disappointed. We've stayed at a few resorts that claim to have ocean views in Australia and overseas but nothing has even been half as good. The room was ready at the check-in time specified, was well cleaned and it smelled divine. Great work by the management. We were in room 30 which was right on top of the resort, just a heads up for those "non-active" tourists "It is a steep climb up". You could either challenge yourself for 5 minutes (which is how long it takes) or cheat and get a cab from the taxi rank nearby for $5 (which is what we did).

All in all, great room, amazing views and perfect location.

We came to Airlie for our honeymoon and stayed at Pinnacles. What a great choice, we were given a bootle of wine, chocs and complimentary bottles of water. We stayed two nights but wished we could have stayed longer.

My wife and I wanted to go somewhere for our wedding anniversary where we have not been before and we found it at Pinnacles, Airlie Beach. We took the 7 day package (but we added an extra day) and the package included transfers from Hamilton Island with day trips to Whitehaven Beach and another out to the reef. When we got to the resort we were taken to room 29, it was the best. The room was fully self-contained with a large balcony and Jacuzzi over looking the Whitsundays, Everything was catered for by the managers Sue and Brent, they brought a lovely bottle of Champagne and chocolates on our anniversary day. I read all of the reviews about getting up the hill to our room but that was never a problem.The taxi service was the best we have seen to drop you straight to your door for about $5 to $6 dollars. The whole area has some great restaurants below the resort but we went to Shipwrecked on our last night and had the seafood platter which was one of the best we have ever had.
My tip is if you are staying awhile, catch bus or taxi to the shops out of Airlie Beach as this is cheaper then buying in the main street.

Room Tip: Get a room at the top for the best views.
