We stayed at the Reef Retreat at the end of a 4 week holiday in Australia to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Last is certainly not least when it comes to this accommodation. We asked for a room on a higher level as recommended by other guests who have posted reviews, and you certainly feel as though you are eating in the rain forest. You also get a little more privacy. The rooms are well equipped and clean and the gardens are an absolute sanctuary. Other reviews say it all. Clive and Mary have a wealth of knowledge of the surrounding area which they are happy to share. We were glad to have their advice particularly in choosing between the many tours to the Great Barrier Reef. It was spot on!
We were just leaving the resort at the time of the recent cyclone and Clive went out of his way to check our flights through one of his contacts. It was a difficult 24 hours and it is a pity that some of the guests at that time, chose to leave negative reviews. We can only speak as we find and we found this to be a 'little gem'. We hope it will not be too long before we come back.
Thank you both for a wonderful time
