We got a 4-night deal for two via TravelZoo. I'd read mixed reviews, but the deal was too good to pass on so off we went. We'd read that the food in Zephyr's and Foxy's was not the best quality and very expensive, so we shopped for frozen dinners and snacks before we left the mainland. We'd read that the...

you will have a good time on the island and the ppl are friendly and life's good - it's a tropical island. While saying this it is a standout island. you get what you pay for - mostly. I would suggest to my friends and family to go while setting their expectation that things are good. I would also suggest...

My husband and I booked this overnight package for our 28 year anniversary. Checkin was good and friendly. Room was nice and accomadating. Three course meal at Zephrys was five star, and service faultless. Buffett Breakfast met expectations. On the downside, Foxy's bar was a let down. Some staff unfriendly and the entertainment was suitable for an old folks home,...

We stayed in a Resort Studio and Ocean Suite room as a family of 5. The rooms were extremely comfortable with a large balcony and good kitchen facilities. But the stay at Fitzroy Island is not really about the rooms! I bought a stinger suit and went snorkeling every day, several times. I saw amazing coral and beautiful fish and...

Just had last week of school holidays here. Great for kids. The water was a little murky due to the weather but the snorkeling was great. Do not believe the lies about 95% of the Northern GBR is destroyed by coral bleaching. What rubbish. Go and see for yourself. You'll be pleasantly surprised

Invited family from overseas to join us to dive explore Great Barrier Reef. Three children joined our three 14,12,9. Good accommodation, great opportunity for snorkelling. Limited other activity and food choices especially for children are limited. Overall a pleasant activity and one to be recommended.

Apparently we were upgraded to a top floor room and this proved to be spacious with cooking facilities and balcony overlooking the beach. It's a lovely setting to relax, but beware that a lot of people make day trips to the island and invade the beaches during the day. The shop is very limited particularly for food, so although you...

We stayed there 1 night but wish we had stayed a second! This island is truely beautiful with lots to do, and is only 45 mins from cairns marina. There are great walks to do. We suggest to do the summit walk via the light house and come back down towards the resort, offering a breathtaking view of the sun...

Beautiful apartments. We had lower floor, 1 bed with all meals included. It was well equipped, kitchen and full bathroom, with air conditioning. It was nice laying in bed, listening to the water, or sitting on the balcony watching it. Walk to the water, and late in the afternoon/early in the morning, when all the tourist boats were gone, was...

We stayed at Fitzroy Island on the 10-15 of March & had a lovely time. Our Ocean Suite room was very nice clean and roomy in its natural surroundings. What a great location and a wonderful view of the gardens and beach from our bedroom (room 109). The Staff were friendly and 4 in particular went above and beyond. Josh...
