Stayed here in November with the plan to propose to my partner during a meal on the beach.
I must say that from my initial phone call, right thru to getting off the boat transfer back in cairns, the staff, without an exception, were awesome. I have travelled the world and never come across a resort or hotel were every single staff member was helpful, happy and very friendly.
The resort is busy during the day with day trippers, but it was still easy to escape for some quiet time. At night it was very quiet, but so relaxing and peaceful. We loved it.
The breakfast buffet was lovely, hot and fresh. The first night we took a picnic hamper down to the beach. At first look we thought there wasn't enough food, but we were very wrong lol. We were stuffed full, so I would recommend this as a great option for some romance.
Second night we had the seafood platter on a private table on the beach to watch sunset. This was great! Food perfect, service perfect and view was stunning.
We didn't actually eat in the restaurant so other than breakfast I can't comment.
Overall, a great trip, beautiful memories an we will be back.
A HUGE thank you to the staff in e restaurant who helped me pull off a surprise marriage proposal.
