Thank you for the great review. We are certainly glad that you enjoyed your stay. To your cons, fresh towels and toilet paper are given after 3 days (unfortunately greater room service would mean great room charges). Our restaurant is due for opening mid July '17. Little creatures are definitely a part of the tropics and something we all learn...

After Airlie Beach received severe damage from cyclone Debbie we decided to find an alternative destination to travel. Magnetic Island. We were on a tight budget due to the uncertainty of getting a refund from Peppers so we found a pretty place called Amaroo. The bird life is something worth seeing and although the resort is back off the ocean...

The Amaroo on Mandalay was used for the business I work for to hold a community meeting, and I also stayed overnight. The service was outstanding and the room quality was first class. Will be using this place again for future meetings and I hope to holiday here also.

The room was clean and comfortable, has a mini kitchen and ensuite. The resort is surrounded by bushland and so attracts all types of birds and also wallabies to come for a feed, you can...

This was a great motel to visit. Brian and his staff were very helpful and friendly, ready for a chat with us at any time. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The swimming pool is a magnesium pool. Even though it was warm, which is great for sore joints, it was not uncomfortable to swim. Without all of the...

A work trip to the Island. The hotel was clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and polite. The hotel has been there for more than 20 years, but is kept in good condition. The executive suite has a bbq out on the back patio, with a nice view of the surrounding bush.
