My family (including a 7 year old child) had an incredible trip to Green Island. I participated in a SCUBA diving excursion available on the island and had a fantastic guide. My husband did the Seawalker excursion where you can walk on the sea floor without getting your face wet and he had a great time doing that and recommends... More

We just had a fabulous week on Green Island. From our arrival at Cairns ferry terminal the service was excellent. All of the staff were friendly and welcoming, and the service was spot on in every way from start to finish. The room was beautiful and comfortable. We were worried about limited vegan food options but decided to risk eating... More

We enjoyed our stay on Green Island very much. The rooms are large and cool. There was plenty of space to sit and relax and we particularly enjoyed sitting on the verandah backing directly onto the rainforest and watching parent birds feeding their young in a nest just a couple of feet away. The snorkelling was great. Beautiful fish, large... More

There are no water view rooms at Green Island Resort. Do not believe their advertising. If you like looking at shaggy rain forest, you are in luck. This hotel advertised water view rooms and had none. Really disappointed. Certainly not worth the money.

Dear Linda B We are very disappointed to see your review and quite frankly, it is unbelievable. Firstly, as explained to you upon arrival, Green Island Resort does not advertise water views from our rooms in any material, brochures, websites what-so-ever. Rainforest or pool views are advertised. You booked through a third party website and in your very own email... More

Enjoyed our 4 night stay here. We stayed in the Reef Suite which was large with lots of space between sitting and bedding areas so we didn't feel cramped in and it was cleaned/serviced daily. The veranda area was nice to sit and have a morning coffee or a nightcap with a view of the rain forest. The reception staff... More

The resort was beautiful, set in the rain forest, reasonably private rooms, they are neither beach front nor poolside, which means the beach and pool is private from hotel rooms. Staff are very accommodating, with info, bookings, kids activities and after dinner nature walks. All the gear for snorkeling is provided, including stingers suits, we wore them on long mid... More

Everyone was wonderful, the Island was perfect. For about 8 hours the island is very busy and then for the next 16 hours the island is all yours. Food was great and I would recommend the picnic basket
