We stayed 3 days at Elliot Island and enjoyed amazing experiences and fantastic service from beginning to end.
This is a resort for nature lovers, there are birds nesting in this season so birdsong and some smells are part of the experience, the island is a beautiful coral cay so the beaches are mostly coral. If like us you enjoy taking in the wonders of the ocean then you will be in for a treat - we did boat tours, snorkelling and scuba diving all within a short distance off the island and saw amazing sea creatures consistently. We're not experienced divers at this point, although qualified but the dive team made us feel comfortable and were helpful and friendly all the way along. We saw manta rays, dolphins, reef sharks, BIG turtles and a huge variety of fish and other sea life.
The island felt very safe and guests and staff alike were friendly - whats there to not be happy about on this island?! The manager himself was around everyday greeting and making guests feel welcome. We stayed in an Eco-cabin which was very clean and comfortable albeit basic with the ocean very close by, we spent little time in our cabin with so much to do on the water.
Food can be ordered from the menu for lunch, or you can take the buffet for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It was all well made, good value with a varied range for dining.
There is no mobile network coverage but wifi time can be purchased for use at a couple of hotspots at a reasonable rate. This went hand in hand with simply enjoying the natural surroundings
The resort is set up to have a minimal impact on the local environment without compromising a comfortable experience, and does give visitors information on keeping their own impact to a minimum, as well as a guide to the local wildlife. We really liked the fact that it is set up like this and it was a factor in staying there.
If you are a diver, or snorkeler then Lady Elliot Island is a must!
