“Great place for a holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2012

We were on the 6th floor, and the views were great. Enjoyed the pool, and the spa pool. The apartment was very clean & fresh, lovely decor, had everything we needed. The couch LOOKED nice, but was not that comfortable, and it was a bit annoying that the cushions kept coming away from the base after sitting there a while - that said, we didn't spend a lot of time sitting and watching TV. The walk into town was only 5-10 minutes. We would definitely stay here again as we felt it was reasonably priced for a family. We didn't have many dealings with the staff, but the ones we did meet were friendly.

Awesome place to stay. Stayed one night in a 2 bedroom apartment with 3 friends was a good location and really good size. We payed extra and were lucky enough to have the room till 5pm which was great for us. The only let down was when we went to have a hot spa after diner and the actual swimming pool was warmer than the spa. Would definitely stay here again rooms were clean and modern.

Room Tip: we were in b block on the 4th level and had a really good view but i think all rooms will get a good...

Beautiful location n rooms!! Loved it. Only issue was checking in as you had to drive up the steep hill to check in but there were no parks available at top do I had to drive back down and walk up. In fit so it's ok, but if u were old or until it would be uncomfortable!

Views = great (for those whining about the construction out the front, have a spoon of cement, can't be helped and still loads of great sea and marina views!)

Facilities were good, car park ok, pool and spa were great. I did not actually get to deal with any staff, but if they had not been great my new wife would have certainly let me know!

Couch was HORRIBLE! It was a pain and gave me back spasms and the seat cushions kept coming off the base. I did not come on my honeymoon to sit on the couch I agree, however at the end of a full day, and bub down to sleep, an hour of cuddling in front of the TV certainly would be nice. Instead, ended up going to the bed most of the time and it was comfy! So usually went to sleep early! :D

Lot of feedback here about crappy couch, seriously fix that and I will be back there everytime without fail.

And to those also having a whine about the distance into town (excepting those with recent knee surgery!) give me a break, I'm tubby and unfit and the 850 metres into the centre of town was nothing, even with a slight hill...

Thank you for a good honeymoon location to explore from!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the first floor & it was great. Staff were friendly. Full kitchen (even a dishwasher). Dining table inside & a table outside on the balcony too. Balcony was huge & covered thank goodness because it rained for most of our stay so we could still eat our meals outside without getting wet. Lounge sofa was uncomfortable but not a big deal. Rooms were clean & there was a washer & dryer as well. Lots of hot water in the shower. We all slept well - beds were comfy & no noise. If you haven't read about the rooms when you book, the information book there is loaded with info. You are provided with a starter set of amenities - ours lasted for our stay - & rooms are not serviced each day. Kids loved swimming in the pool (it was great to see a small toddler pool too) & they loved the huge spa. The car parks are very tight but are undercover which is good. It's a bit of a walk to the main street but it's all on a cemented footpath & our kids rode their scooters (although we mainly drove because of the rain). Overall, we were happy with our choice & would stay again.

We looked for apartments for 13 of of us for a 65th birthday celebration and found the ideal place. Chosing a location off the internet can be difficult. Rooms were spacious clean and beds very comfortable. good size fridge for all of our requirements. Washing and drying facilities all helped make our stay perfect. Spacious verandas to sit back and enjoy the winter sun in Airlie. Walking distance to town for those who enjoy a drink and dining in the local restaurants. Plenty car parking as we all drove there from Cairns area. Only setback was that Blue Horizon was on a bit of a hill so those not so fit (3 of us had knee surgery with on going problems) who did walk to town found it a bit of a chore going back up to the resort.

Room Tip: We had our son and his wife and baby with us and had adjoining apartments via the veranda and entran...
