We have really enjoyed our stay at Pinnacles - the apartment is huge, very well appointed with great views over Airlie and the Whitsunday. Staff ha email been very friendly and helpful. We're definitely hoping to stay again.

It was our first visit to Airlie and I think we chose the best place to stay. We had a week in a 2 bedroom apartment and I wish we had booked for longer. We had the most magnificent views from the oversized balcony and a jacuzzi which we used to cool off during the day and heated for relaxing of a night. When we weren't in the jacuzzi we were cooling off in the beautiful infinity pool.
It was a short walk down the hill (yes it is steep) into the centre of town and we would get a taxi back to our apartment door. The apartment had everything you would expect of a 5 star resort. The service was fantastic from the staff, even organising to collect us from the marina when our plane was delayed on Hamilton Island and also booking our trip to Whitehaven Beach.
The town centre had some lovely restaurants which we enjoyed when not having a meal on our balcony. There is also a great walking track which goes from one end of the bay to the other.
Would we return to Pinnacles...absolutely!

Room Tip: We stayed in Apartment 6 high on the hill. Fantastic view and extremely private!

We have become regulars at Pinnacles, returning every winter for the sunshine and relaxation. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. The pool is fantastic and everything faces the right way for sun and views. The managers are lovely people, friendly and helpful, very capable and every year we return there are improvements. Personally we don't mind the walk up the hill and would always have a few laughs on the way between ourselves and others heading up and down the hill. But if you aren't fit or have bad knees just hire a rental for your stay or taxi - the benefits of being high up on the hill is worth it. The apartments we've stayed in are great - well appointed, spacious with great indoor/outdoor flow. Every day there is a pleasure. A short walk down Golden Orchid Drive and you're right in the hub - and the new supermarket just at the bottom of the Drive is a great addition if you want to pick up a few things. We highly recommend Pinnacles as the place to stay at Airlie Beach.

We recently stayed for 10 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. The views from the apartment were fantastic. Our jacuzzi was heated and awaiting us when we arrived. The verandah is very spacious and a lovely place to relax in the afternoon and evening. The unit was very clean on our arrival and serviced twice during our stay (very spoilt). TV's were great in everyroom, although it would be nice to be able to have kids channels in the bedroom. The kitchen only had basic cooking items but staff at reception were accommodating when I enquired an extra cooking item. Some plastic items for the kids would be helpful. Lovely pool area, heated but not quite warm when we stayed but we did travel during an extreme winter weather period. The gym is very well equipped. Guest lounge has an awesome coffeee machine available to in house guests. Great location central to main street but if you are a family with young children a car is the best option for getting around. Woolworths at the end of the street and many great restaurants around. Our tip Fish D'vine.

Stayed at the Pinnacles Apartments for 3 nights recently.

Our apartment had fantastic views over the township of Airlie Beach and the bay.

Service was very friendly and efficient at reception

A bit of a walk up the hill to get home after being in the town but after a few days we had gotten used to it.

The complex has a 'no excessive noise' policy which seems to be quite strictly enforced, which was great for us as we were after a relaxing, peaceful long weekend. We had a peaceful night's sleep on the comfortable beds each night, only being awoken by the cockatoos in the morning.

Would definitely stay there again when we go back to Airlie.

My family (hubby and 12 yo son) recently enjoyed five nights in a 2 bdrm apt at the Pinnacles.
This place is AMAZING! The views are incredible and retreating to our private jacuzzi on the balcony was a relaxing treat after full days of touring. Five star? Absolutely! The apartment was well equipped. Views from every window, and I mean every window - the shower was brilliant!
I could never get sick of the views. The staff are very friendly and very accommodating.
If we visit Airlie Beach again - The Pinnacles is where we will be staying. The Resort is also in a great location -close to everything. Enjoy! We HIGHLY recommend The Pinnacles Resort!

We stayed at Pinnacles Resort when we were in Airle Beach for our Whitehaven Beach Wedding. The view from our apartment (6) was amazing! The apartment was clean, modern and spacious. The pool was wonderful and having our very own private jucuzzi on our spacious balcony was bliss. The staff at The Pinnacles are professional, helpful and friendly, more than you could hope for. Don't worry about the hike up the hill, it helps work off all the good food you are going eat at the wonderful restaurants Airlie has to offer. Looking at other accommodation when you are walking around Airlie you will be happy that you chose The Pinnacles.
