2/5

The location is as spectacular as the rest of the Whitsundays. Love the living reef and the wildlife which are great for families. The pool is beautiful, as was our room. Breakfast buffet was also really nice. However the staff seem extremely inexperienced and disengaged across the board (with the exception of the tour desk) and in need of further training in basic customer service. There’s is also a total absence of any activities or atmosphere after dinner. The food and drink options are also extremely limited given there are only a small number of places to eat.

5/5 Excellent

The living reef lagoon offers a unique opportunity to see and interact with sea creatures in the heart of the resort. There is a good mix of free activities and paid activities at a range of price points. Breakfast was included, and my kids are under 12 so they ate for free, which was great for my budget and sanity when they are fussy.

4/5 Good

Perfect location on this beautiful island. Well laid out resort with large welcoming areas. Room was spacious although the balcony was very small, bathroom newly fitted out and very smart. Graze restaurant offered many types of food buffet style, there’s also a couple of other restaurants with a la carte dining. Tonic bar offers a limited selection of small snacks but we found that the service was very slow and tables were cluttered with dirty glasses and plates. The resort needs a small cafe where you could buy sandwiches, pastries or salads to have with a coffee. Lots of water sports available and huge swimming pools
