“Great value, nice location.”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

I was travelling alone to attend my sons wedding at Whitehaven Beach and upon arrival at Mango House, I had been upgraded to an upstairs poolside apartment - I was very chuffed! I found the apartment lovely, very spacious and clean, very comfortable bed too. It had everything you could possibly need for a relaxed and fuss-free holiday.

I loved the tropical gardens surrounding the beautiful swimming pool, the convenience of a supermarket and bottle-shop across the road and an easy 20 minute walk into Airlie Beach. Host Peter was very helpful and kind. I would gladly stay here again and also gladly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Poolside apartments are lovely, especially upstairs as you have such a nice view of the pool and lus...

My husband and I stayed at Mango Resort 2 nights in October 2013. It was our anniversary and one of our friends surprised us by phoning the hotel manager to arrange for a bottle of sparkling wine to be brought to our room for our arrival. What a nice surprise when the hotel manager also decided to upgrade us to a suite!

The room was lovely, very bright, no carpet, very clean and spacious obviously!
The kitchen had everything you need for holiday cooking, there was even a dishwasher!
The bathroom was nice as well and had a washing machine and tumble dryer! Great to wash and dry the beach towels! There is a small supermarket 2 min walk from the hotel where you can by cheap washing powder. Otherwise, the hotel sells some.
We did not have time to use the swimming pool but it looked really clean. The garden are beautiful.
The bedroom was a really good size, there was a slide door that you can have wide open during the day and close during the night.

We liked the location of the hotel as it was not in the centre of Airlie Beach. We had a car so it was not a problem. We took the car to go out for dinner one night and we were relieved our hotel was away from the backpackers hostels, bars etc...
All the shuttles/buses for the Whitsundays cruises also come and pick you up from the hotel so it is very convenient.

Enjoyed two nights (technically still enjoying the second night as we're still here as I type this review) in a spacious pool view room. Yes we were "upgraded" as other reviewers had mentioned. We're used to staying in self-serviced accommodations and this is one of the best we've been in. The layout is airy and open, beds super comfortable, bathrooms simple but clean, kitchen well-stocked with the basics, and most of all it has a washer/dryer!!! The pool looks so inviting but haven't tried it out since it's been pouring rain our entire stay. I really love this place and am sad to be moving on to our next destination in Bundaberg.

This is a good place with a beautiful pool. We had a spacious unit here with comfortable bed. And a nice balcony. Like mentioned in previous comments there even is a dryer and washing machine and the motel is quite far from restaurants and the lagoon. Another disadvantage we found that there was only one pan in the unit, so not too easy to cook a meal here. Besides that, this is a good place to stay!

We are a couple of Poms and arrived in Australia mid December (partly to watch the cricket but we won't talk about that!)
So far we've stayed in Melbourne, Mornington, Phillip Island, two hotels in Sydney, Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, Port Douglas, Magnetic Island and now Airlie Beach. Most Aussies have been friendly and helpful and the places we've stayed good but this is certainly one of the best. The manager Pete friendly and helpful so I can only guess that some of the lesser reviewers don't have a sense of humour?
Great place, clean well equipped lovely pool and gardens - no worries!

Superb hotel, room was one of the best we stayed in during our trip to Australia. The hotel is not within walking distance of airlie because but isn't too far out. The rooms are clean and very modern and even had washing and drying facilities which was perfect for us on a 4 week trip down the east coast. The hotel also has a lovely pool and pond with tons of frogs around. Would highly recommend a stay here if you prefer to be a Little bit away from the hustle of airlie beach!

Nice hotel,clean,plenty of room.....just a little far from the town centre unfortunately. Probably a good half hour walk....not usually a problem but it was chucking it down when we were there! Never had an opportunity to use the pool but it looked nice!
