Narrowed down a short list of accomodation and looking for some input (read the comments on each to death but want some fresh opinions). I have included approx prices so comments on what seems a better deal, what is worth the extra coin and what isn't.
* Coral Sea resort sea view spa room - $1150 inc buffet breaky, spa over looking water
* Peppers coral coast resort - $900 inc hot breaky, in room spa
* Pinnacles resort and spa - $900 spa or $1300 jacuzzi. no breaky
* at Waterfront whitsunday - $1000 no breaky, spa on balcony
* Martinique Whitsunday - $750 no breaky or spa. great pool.
* Summit Apartments - $640 no breaky, no spa.
Appreciate the input. Still waiting on best offers from the hotels but above is a good guide. Happy to spend at the top end if worth it!
