“Absolutely brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this resort. I stayed here for a little over a week (a few days before and after my wedding). My bridesmaids and I stayed in an apartment, with the most spectacular view. The room was clean and modern, it truly felt like you were on vacation. The breakfast in the restaurant was included in our package and there was a good variety of dishes, the staff were so accommodating & the food was delicious.

The day after our wedding we planned a recovery day with our guests, we has stayed the night of our wedding in a bridal villa where we had our wedding. We had to be at the marina by 10am, we had to get all of our things to the resort (along with all of the wedding items/dress/etc) the staff told us to pop it all near the reception and they would take it to our room for us, I was gob smacked. How lovely!!

When we arrived back from our day of snorkeling, we were greeted with friendly faces & our room key. All of our items were in our room along with a bottle of champagne and choc dipped strawberries.

To everyone at Peppers thank you so much for making the start of our honeymoon absolutely unforgettable. Just wonderful!

We (Myself, my husband and two Daughters in their early 20's) stayed in a two bedroomed, fully self contained unit on the 2nd floor, with fantastic views out over the Whitsunday passage from the large semi private balcony. Huge ensuite bathroom to main bedroom and second ensuite in second bedroom. Shower was not wonderful as it was a bit low and the water was not powerful, but really a minor inconvenience, as the huge spa bath more than made up for it. The rest of the unit was very clean and comfortable, the bed was very comfortable and we had everything we needed for our weeks stay.Beware we watched an in house movie one evening that cost $18.95 to view, which is very step as you coud go & buy it for about the same price!!! Reception team were always happy & helpful. Check in was easy with the golf cart taking our cases up almost to the lift for us. We dined in Tides daily for breakfast, which was included in our rate. Only complaint about breakfast was that there were no toast facilities?? You had to give the waiter your toast (and egg) order and often your buffet breakfast had gone cold (or was finished) by the time they finally brought it to you (it was always cold & hard & often they forgot what you ordered) would be so much better to have the toaster on the side with the bread so you could do it yourself. When we finally got the knack of ordering toast the second we were seated, and when it finally arrived, we then served ourself from the hot buffet, but often this made breakfast a long meal... We also had lunch in Tides one day and my Lamb Shanks were the most amazing I have ever had...The pool area was just fabulous for both adults and children. There is a free bus to drop you into Airlie Beach & then pick you up & brings you back (every 2 hours) this was wonderful as it meant we could go into Airlie for dinner and still have a lift back. We all agreed that we had an amazing stay and would definitely go back and stay there again without hesitation. Even with the toast situation, I would without a doubt, highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Obviously the higher up the better the view but even from the second floor (they have 3 floors) the...

If magnificent bathrooms are your thing then you will think you are in heaven. Bathroom was as large as bedroom in my one bedroom unit, which looked out at the Pacific Ocean. It had a spa that would have held 6 people, I prefer a shower that fits two however it was adequate. The staff where amazing and helpful. I did not find the restaurant menu enticing, but that is a personal thing. It is someway to shops but there is a bus every 2 hours.

If the spectacular views are anything to go by at Peppers Resort- Airlie Beach, one can be forgiven for expecting automatically that service and food in the establishment should go hand-in-hand. This was certainly our experience when we sat down after a grinding day's work enjoying a nice quiet coffee away from the maddening crowd!

It was such a pleasure and heartening to note that service, pride and passion for great coffee is to be found at Peppers, right on our doorstep almost hidden at the foot of the sprawling, picturesque and scenic beauty of Mt Whitsundays.

This complemented by staff who also appreciate the fine grind enriches the overall experience as we have searched high and low for a decent coffee only to be disappointed time and time again - it was pure delight and thanks to Natasha our experience was absolutely something to write home about. So here I write of such fantastic coffee, tried and tested, not once but twice as the coffee was wonderful the first time around, the second time and we're pretty damn sure that we will be back a third time for more..

Thank you Natasha for allowing us to experience coffee like no other!

This Resort is amazing!!!
We stayed for a week and it was like a home away from home.
Definitely 5 star quality and service. The reception team were very helpful and friendly. Special mention to Stacey the front office manager, Vishal and Amanda on the desk.

Dined in Tides Restaurant (onsite) for breakfast daily and had dinner once during our stay. Buffet breakfast was not fantastic, but food is great. The dinner menu is divine. I'd recommend the chocolate tasting platter for two as a desert.

The apartments are very spacious and have everything you need. The décor is modern and fresh. Love the large spa bath in the ensuite. There's a lush horizon pool next to the bar. We loved having cocktails by the pool and in the outdoor sitting room.

The Resort is only a minute drive from main town Airlie Beach, but they have a free shuttle bus to take you there and pick you up which is good.

We would recommend this Resort to family & friends. Suitable for everyone. Looking forward to our next stay!

Room Tip: Armitt building behind reception.... amazing views!

This was my second time staying at Peppers Airlie Beach and unfortunately this time I was left disappointed.

The service was lovely and friendly, no worries there.

I was given a terrible room, it was not a patch on the room I had last time! It had a very small bath and the whole apartment felt cramped, the shower had no curtain so water went everywhere after a shower. There were not enough towels provided to constantly mop up the water.

I would not stay again based on this room, if you are staying be sure to make sure you have a room with a shower curtain or closed in area (avoid 613).

Breakfast was very disappointing (was excellent last visit where I had a choice from a menu), this time it was a below average buffet - awful scrambled eggs, low quality bacon & sausages, best stick to cereal and toast (you need to ask for toast also). Ordered coffee on both mornings (a flat white) and it was lovely the first day but really bad the second.

Apples were the only fruit available for buffet and weren't great, not the season for them - would be great to see some local mango's!

I was disappointed that there was a gym on the map but it wasn't available.

Overall a disappointing visit but service was still good, perhaps I was just unlucky.

Fantastic resort. Restaurant great food but lacking variety after 6 days stay. Lunch menu poolside was same for kids as dinner menu. Would have liked to see some different food for lunch (burgers/club sandwich etc). A little walk to Airlie Beach but resort has a free shuttle bus every 2 hours. Staff are very courteous and helpful. Very professional. The resort decor is lovely. Very relaxing stay. The 2 bedroom apartment is fantastic has a huge balcony, great kitchen and huge spa bath.
