Just spent 2 nights at the Fitzroy Island Resort which was fantastic - we were in a ocean suite for 2 adults and 2 children so had a fabulous ocean view. The snorkelling was fantastic swimming with turtles was a most amazing experience. I'd read about the cost of meals on the island being pricy however when you're in the moment you tend to forget so a dinner at Foxys followed by a dinner at the restaurant made an already expensive 2 night stay shoot through the roof. Would highly recommend taking as much food with you to the island to cut down on the food bill. Would've loved to sip an alcoholic beverage watching the sun go down but at $9 for a beer and $16 for a cocktail it was soft drinks all round.
