I was so impressed with how clean and tidy this resort was considering it isn't brand new. The facilities are great and it's so close to everything (ferry, supermarket, fabulous beaches!!). The pool and pool area are lovely and the curlews and other birds that come to the resort are just divine. Will definitely stay here again.

Hi Kylie, thank you for such a nice review. We do work very hard to keep the resort in tiptop condition. This is definitely the place to come if you enjoy wildlife. Hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Eileen Nethercott

We booked the resort for three nights for three women, grandma 81 years old. Mum 55, and me 22.
We played tennis, we swam in the pool and we were very impressed with the accommodation as the unit was spacious and clean. The staff were wonderful and friendly. Island Leisure Resort is incredible value for money. Fantastic place to take children or even couples. We had a wonderful time and only wish we could stay longer. The location is ideal, although we had a car, the supermarket is walking distance. I doubt you would find better value for money anywhere on the island.

This is an older style resort, but very well maintained. The rooms are huge, clean and self contained. Our room even had a 3 level bunkbed if you want to take the kids. For the quality you get at this resort the prices are definitely not expensive.
There's a supermarket in walking distance but they also sell several things in the kiosk at the resort. You can order a basket full of stuff to cook a breakfast which only costs $15 for 2 persons.
The staff at the resort is very friendly!

Stayed here recently for a family holiday. The place was clean, relaxed and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a games room, craft room, tennis courts and swimming pool. Would definately reccommend staying here. Also bus drops off and picks up right outside the resort.

My husband and I have just spent 2 nights at the Island leisure resort. The only negative comment I have is that 2 nights was not long enough!!! The island itself is magnificent and the resort is everything we could have wanted. Our bure was spacious, comfortable, quiet and very clean.We had our own kitchen and there were also 2 bbqs in the pool area which by the way was fantastic. Great pool and plenty of lounges, tables and chairs and shade areas. There was also a large games room which would be great for families, catering for young and older kids. Fully stocked, reasonably priced kiosk, even had beer and wine at good prices. The excellent (and cheap) local bus stops almost at the door and the beach is a few steps away. Last but certainly not least was Robin, from the moment we stepped onto the property she was so helpful and friendly and went out of her way to make our stay more enjoyable. Robin is an absolute wealth of knowledge on everything about the island. She was only too happy to advise us on the best of everything to see and do and even the latest weather forecast! Nothing was too much trouble. Eileen and Bob? are very lucky to have such an enthusiastic, friendly and helpful employee. Thanks again.

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying on Magnetic island in Island Leisure Resort. I don't know where to start; the owners and Robyn were so welcoming and helpful; the bure was clean and comfortable; the gardens were well-cared for and lush; the gamesroom was tidy and very well equipped; the art room was magnificent. We loved the big deep pool, the kiosk was well stocked and the kids (3 and 6) could play shops with their pocket money. The whole experience was amazing. We were lucky enough to visit at a quiet time and felt thoroughly spoilt. A big thank you to everyone who obviously works so hard to make this little resort so perfect, you should be very proud of yourselves!

My wife and I along with our four-year old son spent three wonderful evenings at this little gem. It is well located, being close to the beach, bus stop and amenities. The owners and staff take great pride in ensuring the resort is well maintained; there is a great kids club and recreation room and a lovely pool area which proves a real hit with children of all ages. The bungalows are spacious and fully equipped with all necessary facilities and the air-conditioning works a treat after a hot day exploring the island. Family-style resorts which have that personal touch are becoming more and more rare, so it is encouraging to come across a place a delightful as this. We will defnitely return.
