Despite being only a 20 minute ferry ride from Townsville, when sitting on your balcony in Blue on Blue and looking out at the ocean, you would be forgiven for thinking you were a million miles away on a deserted tropical island. The hotel has a feeling of relaxation and serenity. The apartments are clean and spacious. We stayed in 824 on this occasion which had a pool view and we could see the marina beyond. It was clean and beautifully air-conditioned (which is important as it can get very hot and humid, especially in summer). The apartments have full kitchens and laundry so they cater to whatever your budget may be. You can cook yourself or use one of the available webber barbeques by the pool or eat in the fantastic restaurant. We had the degustation dinner on our first night which I HIGHLY recommend. It was fantastic with matching wines. Just be warned, turn up hungry because the portions are very generous and the food is so delicious you definitely wont want to send any back! We had dinner the next night which was also delicious. We have never had a bad meal in this restaurant and have eaten here many times. If its in your budget to eat out, eat at the Boardwalk restaurant at peppers, you wont find anywhere better.
The resort pool is huge. Fantastic for family with lots of shallow ends and steps for kids to play but big enough that if you are a couple there is always somewhere to go where there are no children. There is a second pool close to the reception area which is smaller and is frequented mostly by adults.
We are really looking forward to coming back at Easter with our children to enjoy this little slice of paradise.
