My family traveled here on Christmas Eve with plans to stay for one night and scatter my father's ashes during our stay as he lived on the island as a child. We originally had planned to have three of us travel over on the 1pm ferry and for the other three guests to bring our own boat over from the...

Green island island is wonderful when the day trippers go home! Before the it is over crowded and looses it's charm, but when the lady boat leaves and there are only hotel guests left it is heavenly, hotel was beautiful, we stayed one night to get 2 dives in. Restaurant lacks atmosphere but food couldn't be faulted.

The island is an hour long ferry ride out from the coast, but even the ferry has great service. Besides the refreshment bar on the ship that even serves ice cream, the staff are extremely friendly and willing to help you make different activity reservations while on the island, such as parasailing, scuba trips, and helicopter rides. You can visit...

We had a five nights holiday in March 2016. The resort is well constructed in the rain forest. The whole island is very small. You can walk around the island. each night the hotel staff will take you to find the secrets of the island including trees and fish. You can snorkel everyday there. Hotel food is in good quality...

I am from Calcutta India. Visited Green Island with my family, for a day trip from Cairns. We were a part of a larger group of tourists. The arrangements on board the vessel and on the Island were perfect. The resort was very clean. It is visually beautiful and mentally exhilarating. My wife and I are above 80yrs ,but we...

This is truly an amazing island and when the weather is perfect the place is truly stunning to arrive at. The resort itself is well laid out and the rooms very clean and tasteful. We had rooms overlooking the private pool for residents and they were all fantastic. The staff were very helpful and polite from the reception to the...

My husband and I just got back from our six day honeymoon on Green Island, and we both agree it was the best week of our lives. The rooms at Green Island, while pricey, were fantastic. The bed was comfortable, the amenities were great and the cleaning service was great also. There are only 46 rooms on the island, and...

I was debating whether to give this place 4 or 5 stars due to the day visitors that arrive here, but decided to give it 5 as I loved the island and I will be returning. The ferry crossing is included in the price of your stay and is a 45 minute boat ride out of Cairns. I have been...

Wonderful island, breakfast was very good, dinner was good not great. At 9:30 am and average of 800 "day trippers" began arriving, far too many people on the island. Room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Pool was great, staff very nice and attentive. Dive trip was very professional but short on "dive time."

Use of all the non-motorised equipment was included along with a glass bottom boat ride which was best taken in the morning. The fish feeding on the jetty and the sunset drinks after the day trippers left the island and were included and highly enjoyable. Rooms were spacious and cool considering the hot temperatures experienced during our stay. Transfers from...
