Stayed here as a couple for five days in March 2017. We stayed in Unit 29. The unit itself was very big and clean. The apartment also has a large balcony with stunning, uninterrupted views of the coast. It is on one of the higher levels of the resort. The apartment had fantastic air conditioning which is a must in...

Cedar Creek falls after some rain is very popular with our guests who have a car or have hired a car. The water is very refreshing and the surrounding national park backdrop makes it very picturesque. Our staff are only too happy to assist with recommendations for car hire and we do have a discount available for our guests with...

We loved this place! 7 of us stayed here in 3 apartments. From check in to check out everything went smoothly. We had a gorgeous higher level apartment overlooking the pool and out to the ocean. We had a jacuzzi on our balcony. We could see the ocean from our bed! Friends had a lower level spa apartment, well equipped,...

We loved our stay. The pool is amazing and having your own jacuzzis is amazing .we sat on the balcony in the jacuzzis with a drink in my hand looking out to spectacular views. I would say the Decor could be updated a little but it is spotless and amazing value. If your not good at walking up hills maybe...

Stayed 4 nights in a one bedroom apartment which had a fabulous view out over the Coral Sea. The balcony is a good size and makes the best spot for meals. We would guess the building is at least 20 years old and it is starting to look very tired. Definitely overdue for some upgrading. It did however suit us...

As Pinnacles catch phrase suggests, this place is truly special. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the rooms are special. Waking up every day to views of the Whitsundays is sensational. You have to stay at Pinnacles if you are in Airlie Beach!

We booked the 2 bedroom apartment with sea view. Believe me that the view and the room will not disappoint you. It is fabulous. The pool is great too. Our balcony was so amazing. The location is walking distance to grocery and downtown, BUT, the resort is high up in the hills and the walk is quite challenging. Taxis are...

My partner and I recently stayed at Pinnacles, the apartment was perfect, great bed and the view from the balcony simply breathtaking. The complex is close to the shops and restaurants around Airlie. The pool is a great place to unwind, it is crystal clear and clean, the surrounding gardens are well maintained. Would gladly return in the future.
