We have two young children and they loved the pool, daily bird feeding and the wallabies, heaps of room for them to run around. BBQ' s to cook on, rooms have everything you need. Friendly helpful staff. We will... More

Nice spot that's short bus ride from Nelly Bay ferry and also an easy walk. Staff are super nice and helpful. And the garden/pool area are very well looked after and very nice. Rooms were clean and tidy.

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.

My boyfriend and I had such a great stay at Amaroo- the owners could have not been more friendly and went out of their way to help us out. Great location, and good amenities on site. Would definitely recommend :-)

Room: Functional, on the small side. Comfortable bed. No fly screens on front windows or door. Kitchen very clean. No cooktop. Only microwave. Plenty of plates, etc. Décor (as others have stated) is a little dated. The curtains in my room had mould. Bathroom could have been better (dusty benchtops & bin and the shower I gave a good once...

My partner booked two nights at Amaroo on Mandalay in the Executive Suites without looking at the photos first. The place was clean but the room which are meant to be "executive suites" were really ugly and dated. I have no idea why these are called executive suites. The location wasn't bad because he had a car and the guy... More

Originally we stayed on the island for 1 week in a motel on the esplanade and when we wanted to extend our stay we couldn't because the unit was booked. We looked at alternative accommodation and found Amaroo on Mandalay. We had a beautiful unit on the North side with a bush border. The only thing I found slightly disturbing... More
