On our trip to Australia, the travel agent told us this hotel would be the best to see the Great Barrier Reef and it was amazing. After the first days, it was nice to lay on the beach and just relax. The staff is really pleasant and everything is fine.

FAntastic location, fantastic food and fantastic amenities. Recommend you ask for Castaway Cottage if available. Otherwise ask for upper floor accomodation as you can hear those in rooms above. Great attentive staff.

I stayed at the resort for a 4 day scientific conference. It was absolutely beautiful and the surroundings were perfect. However, the food at Foxy's was expensive and of average quality. On the upside, the scuba diving was quite affordable and Louis was an awesome dive guide. I'd stay here again, if only for the diving.

I have been to the island many times and had a wonderful stay but the quality has defiantly slipped. Food at the resort restaurant very poor. Food at foxy's bar terrible!

Hi willmi1 It was extremely disappointing to see you had a negative experience during your stay with us, which is certainly unusual. It is standard practice at the property when and if an issue is noted these are dealt with timely and is remedied at a property level prior to guests departure to their satisfaction.

Lovely hotel with fantastic junior suite rooms overlooking the ocean and spotless. Gorjus island location with regular ferry connection- it can be bouncy. Good snorkelling straight off beach and an onside dive and water sport centre. Turtles at the white rock end of welcome bay. Nice pool with loungers. Main restaurant serves excellent food. The bar is also good but....

Lunch & Dinner at Foxy's Bar was very average. Rib fillet burger not cooked properly & Rump steak asked for medium received rear. When you have accommodation and ferry expenses as well as activities you would expect to have great food. Breakfast average. There was no love towards the food being served. Disappointing.
