My husband and I spent a glorious long weekend in an Island Suite for the Australia Day holiday. Our room exceeded our expectations and the balcony in the rainforest was a welcome retreat for writing postcards away from the noise of the TV. The staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Our accommodation included many... More

We have just left this island this morning and our family has enjoyed every moment. We had a glorious 7 nights there. The staff are superb and so helpful. They remembered the little things like the plastic cup and straw sitting on our table at dinner etc and had things ready before we even got to the restaurant. The meals... More

I had booked this holiday as my 60th birthday present (encouraged by my husband who had been here several times over the years) having never been... More

Enchanting place, in touch with nature and as close as being on a deserted island as we will ever get. Magnificent snorkeling, delicious food and best service. The sunsets and night skys are to die for. Great Honeymoon or wedding spot. Stayed there with our family for 6 days visiting from Canada. Definately returning on our next trip, I don't... More

We have been looking forward to taking our 3 children - aged 10,12 & 14 - to the Great Barrier Reef for many years. We decided to start our holiday at Green Island so that the children could practice snorkelling before we headed for the outer reef. I was pleasantly surprised by just how easy it was to access good... More

We took advantage of a Luxury Escapes package which was very good value and spent 7 nights at the resort. As other reviewers have reported, there are crowds of day trippers on the island between 9.30am and 4.30pm and the resort is set in the middle of the action although access is limited to house guests. However, that was really... More
