The location is excellent. Really close to the hub of Airlie without the noise. Supermarket right across the road. Great views, and a nice big veranda to take in the views. The apartment (#47) was quite dated and could use a fresh coat of paint throughout, but it was big and well equipped for a self catered type holiday. The...

The hotel is about 250 m from the waters edge, so they need to change their name, or simply add the words "Not"!!!! The view is stunning, ignoring the noisy roads below. The room was good and customer service excellent. But we later found the Coral Sea Resort which was looked beautiful. But only had lunch there. So I think...

This little hotel wasn't what I expected, but I was very happy with it overall. Emma from reception was lovely, attentive and always happy to help. I was lucky enough to be place in one of the best rooms of the hotel, we absolutely loved the views and I am very grateful for that. The only couple of things I...

Stayed at Water's Edge Resort for two nights so that we could take a trip out to the Whitsundays. Our apartment was excellent with everything we could wish for, but what really impressed me was the view from our windows and terrace. I'll try to attach some photos. Breakfast was included and consisted of cereal, toast and tea/coffee. Under building...

My partner and I recently stayed here as a treat for my 21st birthday but we were slightly disappointed with our experience. I wouldn't call this place a resort, its more like a hotel. The location is fantastic, not even a 5 minute walk into town and the supermarket, and the views were great as well, (although we paid extra...

The wifi provided by Water's Edge resort back to Stone Age speed. Impossible to connect to the rest of world, if you stay at 4th floor, you need to stand out at the balcony to get reception. Rude male staff at the breakfast place. Narrow driveway, bus can only stop at the bottom of the steep driveway, it will be...

The hotel/resort is pretty good, but we hadn't got any information about that they didn't had any roomservice and you have to pay additional 5$ to borrow a pool towel, which most hotels just offers for free. There are way to few sun beds by the pool and the bar are closed after breakfast until 3pm, so you can't have...

This hotel was a great stay for us. It's located central in airlie beach with only a 5 minute walk from the central town (although be aware it's a big hill to walk back up to the hotel) the hotel room was very large with an amazing view of the sea. It was gorgeous view. The room had a great...

Great apartment in a small hotel.Emily was exemplary in helping us sort our onward trip out after we missed a flight. She sorted new flights,check out, hire car return within about 15 minutes whilst we were panicking! She was really knowledgeable about local excursions and we booked a couple of trips to Whitsundays and Crocodile safari which we thoroughly enjoyed....
