Everything from the staff, food, and most importantly location. Once in a lifetime chance, and it was worth every penny. Make sure you go scuba diving, snorkeling, and take a picnic to your own beach.

Lizard Island is the place to go when you want to spoil yourself. The small plane takes you over the reef to the private runway. You are escorted into paradise by smiling, friendly and professional staff and the dream begins.

The food was varied and delicious. The chef will create something special for even the fussiest palate. The views are beautiful, the water clear and inviting.

The beers, wine and spirits were always waiting - just in case.

We had the degustation dinner on the beach. 7 courses matched with wines and an attentive waiter.

Comfortable rooms, lovely bedding and reefs that can be reached by pulling on a pair of flippers and kicking slowly for 30 seconds!

Please disregard silly comments you might read about requiring jacket and tie at lunch. That is nonsense. There certainly weren't guests lounging around the dinner table in speedos, boardies and thongs as others have suggested is an acceptable dress code.

It is comfortably, casually sophisticated (if that makes sense?). A pair of shorts, a nice t shirt or polo and a pair of sandals or sneekers would be a common sight.

I think possibly some of the excursions could be better priced, but really that is about the only criticism.

Love the staff, and love the feeling of total relaxation. It is worth the coin to really spoil yourself now and then. You are only on this side of the grass once!

The biggest plus of the resort in my oppinion is the staff. Each and every employee is so friendly and welcoming and you really can feel that all of them like their job a lot. They are very attentive and do aspire after living up to every wish. So a big applause there! Also the food is just amazing and always very creative and delicious. The choices are somewhat limited which however didnt disturb us a second considering how good the food was. Lastly the island is really beautiful and we enjoyed our holidays a lot. However, there were also some things that didnt live up to our expectations. First of all the rooms, especially from the outside, as well as the resort itself should be looked after more. For instance there is a total lack of flowers and the floor of the paths breaks open at some spots. Secondly, we regretted a lot that the beaches are neglected: there are no towels available there, no umbrellas set up, the loungers are sometimes dirty and there was no service of drinks on the beach just outside the reception. This was really a bummer as it made it much more bothersome to enjoy the island's beautiful beaches. Lastly, the scuba diving is nice but just ridiculously expensive! I mean 600$ for a one dive trip for two persons? Seriously? To me that is almost insolent. I do not want to come across as avaracious, but e.g. in similarly exorbitantly prized first class flights we do see and appreciate the value for money much more than in these overprized diving trips.

The snorkeling right off the hotel's beach is excellent. Cod Hole one of the ten greatest dive locations is a one hour boat ride away. Sincerely friendly staff in the restaurant and water sports. The wonderful surprise was the excellent cooking. Plus free wine including French Champagne and excellent Australian Cabernet and Chardonnay.

It's great to have enforced peace and tranquillity. One hour north of Cairns flying over the great barrier reef is just the beginning. There was plenty to do here and nothing to do! Just want we needed. Great beaches, plenty to see snorkling, optional trips to the outer reef, sailing,sups and kayaking. But most importantly tranquillity. Great food and service. Facilities are showing signs of consistent upgrade but not 5 star. But that's not what this place is about. It's VERY RELAXING. If you don't like it, then that's your problem. A great 4 day stay
