“Execptional Resort, wouldnt stay anywhere else”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

Well where do i start. This resort is the best place i have ever stayed not only in Noosa but Australia wide. My family and i stayed here for 5 night's in a 2 bedroom unit (number 71). The unit was located towards the back of the resort in a great quiet spot. The unit was really clean & tidy, comfortable & modern, had a great kitchen and laundry (fantastic having my 1yo daughter to be able to wash clothes and prepair meals for her). The resort itself has a great vibe, the staff are soo friendly always smiling and nothing is ever too much to ask. The grounds are very well maintained, one minute you r walking through a maze of trees, plants & small streams flowing through the whole property then you walk into the HUGE lagoon pool, this is a great place for relaxing or have a bbq on there 3 very clean bbq's and huge bbq area. The spa's r & sauna's r fantastic and the tennis courts r fantastic being raised above the carpark that give u a great view while playing as well as giving a huge undercover parking area. We had 2 very small problems (well if u could call them problems was NO issue at all) 1. Our clock radio beside the bed started to make a weird buzzing noise, i notified reception and Cathy was going to get it replaced straight away but we didn't worry about it as we didn't use it anyway and 2. The sliding door was a little stiff but once again as soon as i notified Cathy at reception within 2 minutes she sent Greg up to fix so once again there was NO issue. All in all i would HIGHLY recommend this resort to everyone, located square in the middle of the best part of Gympie Tce with great places to eat just out side the gates but you cannot look past Moondoggies Cafe connected to the resort, the best poached eggs ever. A group of us stayed at the Islander all with different rooms, my personal option was we had the best room. 1 of my mates stayed in room 14 and although there unit was 2 story & directly oppersite the Lagoon Pool i felt our room was more modern. To sum everything up i have already started to plan another holiday there as 5 night's was just not enough to actually taken in all the natural beauty of the grounds and explore all the walkways and paths. Fantastic resort, excellent staff cannot wait to get back there. Thank you to all the staff at the Islander Resort for making our holiday 1 we will never forget.

Dear 'Mr Michael O'
Wow, thank you for the lovely feedback, we are so thrilled you enjoyed your stay and appreciate you staying with us and also taking the time to write the review. Moondoggy's are very woofy about you saying they do the best poached eggs - thankyou from them too (they would write a big thank you but their paws don't work real well on the keyboard)!
Its true we love our resort but its more important to hear that our guests do so thankyou.
We would love to have you stay again with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to relax.
Bula, Cathy and Team

We had a great stay here two years ago, and this year was just as good. The resort works really well for our family of four (two boys aged 12 and 14) with the BBQ area, great pools and two tennis courts. The accommodation is not luxurious, but certainly has all the things necessary to make life easy including two TVs and a separate laundry. Location is also a big plus being right in the centre of Noosaville. The only downside this time was that Moondoggys kept closing its food and juice service earlier than advertised so we missed out on a couple of afternoons...ah well we will remember to go there in the morning next time we are back at the Islander ! Highly recommended.

Dear Mrs 'Windy Kiwi'
Thank you for the feedback about our resort and we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. The feedback about Moondoggy's, also provided on checkout on our questionnaire has been acted upon. Moondoggy's Cafe (regardless of whether its a quiet day or not ) will now close kitchen (except for afternoon tapas and cakes) at 3pm and the juice and coffee stations will not close before 4pm. Your feedback was invaluable in this regard and we are sorry that you came expecting to be served and the cafe had closed. Thank you again for the feedback and for staying with us. Bula Cathy

The good news is its in a very good location in a beautiful part of the world.
The Bad News is that the quality of the units differ greatly, we stayed at the Islander as friends of ours had book several units beforehand, most of our friends units looked far better than the one we received which was outdated and well below standard for cleanliness.

Room Tip: Ask to see unit first and get an option to see other units

Dear Mrs 'Ourgar'
Thank you for your feedback -you are correct that all our villas are decorated differently, however the AAA independent ratings put us as a strong 3 1/2 star resort. I understand you stayed in a 3 bedroom villa right on the lagoon pool for the 2 nights and shared with other guests - perhaps not well known to you. Regretfully the 3 bedroom villas do only have one bathroom - however this same villa has numerous repeat guests staying for up to 2 weeks each year and is one of the heavily requested 3 bedroom villas so I am sorry our resort failed to meet your expectations. With the feedback about the open areas from the bedroom and privacy - this is less of an issue for our families or groups that know each other well that book these villas but I appreciate for your stay this was a big issue given sharing with others and I am sorry about this. We hope you had a s afe journey home. Bula Cathy

Thanks again to Cathy and the staff at 'The Islander'. We have just returned from our second holiday there and have already rebooked for 2013. The Units have everything you will need in them and are very clean and tidy. The location is brilliant, wonderful restaurants all around within walking distance and nothing beats a stroll along the river at sunset. The atmosphere inside the resort is inviting and relaxing. Breakfast at Moondoggys is a must! Highly recommend.

Have just come back from a 7night holiday at this resort with my family, having never been to Queensland before we really didn't know what to expect and we certainly were not disappointed in anyway. The Noosa Islander is perfect for a family holiday or of any age really. The lagoon pool in the centre of the complex is quite simply stunning, If i didn't know better we could easily have been in fiji, immaculate pools, heated along with additional spa pools it had something for everyone. In fact not being a particular water baby myself my husband and son were very surprised to keep spotting me floating around cooling off! Kids absolutely LOVE the pool area and my son spent hours in it! Our accommodation although not the most modern we've ever stayed in was comfortable and the kitchen was more than adequate with almost everything you would expect to find at home, really great to have your own washing tub and tumble dryer also (made a huge difference to my usual depressing load of holiday washing on my return home!) Moondoggy's the resort's cafe bar is worth a visit and my son absolutely loved the thick milk shakes there, I might add the staff there really were delightful and always so friendly and welcoming.
One thing that i did find really good was its superb position, right in the centre so you could walk to the shops and restaurants but still felt you were tucked away from the noise and hustle and bustle. For families wanting to eat out there was a good choice of restaurants catering for all budget's and tastes so no problem's on the food front, infact we had some of the nicest meals out we've had in a long time. (One tip, book a head for a table on a saturday night as nearly all the restaurants were fully booked we found out that evening!)
Really loved our holiday at the Islander Noosa resort, can't wait to come back and feel very fed up being back in "not so" sunny Auckland!!!!

It is great to hear that you appreciated the security in the resort. We are lucky to be in such as great location amongst restaurants, cafes, the park and the river... and then more cafes ...yum.
Thank you for staying and for giving us the opportunity to see our resort through our guests eyes -this is invaluable for us.

From the moment we arrived I was impressed with this resort. Our room was clean and overlooked the lagoon pool and had everything we needed for our stay. The heated pool was a hit with our 3-year-old and we loved the spas and all the facilities were fantastic. Stepping outside the front gates and I can't think of a better location in Noosaville. Located alongside the restaurant and cafe district of Noosaville and just a short walk to the supermarket. Cross the road to the beautiful Noosa River foreshore, hire a boat or kayak or catch the ferry to hastings Street. Also just a short walk to a playground for the kids.

We stayed for 8 nights and I wish we could have stayed longer. I was amazed that we could have all of this for $120 a night (2 bedroom villa - winter special). We will definitely return to the Islander Noosa Resort.

Room Tip: Request a lagoon room if you want views of the great lagoon pool and spas. We also requested a room...
