      Wonderful

      We loved our stay at the Whitsundays island resort. The beach is right at your door step, the landscape and scenery is beautiful. The room was very clean and it was lovely sitting in the balcony enjoying the views in the evening. Pool is great and options to eat are close .

      Barefoot Bandits Bowen Trip 2019

      What a trip!!!! Not as many fish caught as we wanted but still a great stay. Housekeeping and staff were great. Only some small issues the management need to deal with. Bathroom window had not been cleaned in a very long time. Power point near stove requires replacing. Mattresses may need replacing soon. Location is great but a little hilly, if you have dodgy joint i.e. knee or back or a heart condition you will have some uphill/downhill walking to deal with.
