“What you see is not what you get.”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Unfortunately our stay at the Blue Horizon was memorable for all the wrong reasons. Arrived and room not ready, very unclean including rotten banana on the veranda and food stains on the bench. There was clumps of hair in the spa bath which then made us not want to use it. The couch was so hard you can not sit on it for long. The hot plates, lights and DVD were all broken and we had to ask for assistance on several occasions. I wrote directly to the owner of the hotel to explain my concerns prior to writing any reviews but he did not respond showing he really does not care for his customers. Never returning again. Beware.

We stayed 2 nights at Blue Horizon in a 1 bed semi self-contained apartment. Our room had a spacious balcony with good views and great sea breezes.

The bathroom had a shower over the spa bath but it was quite awkward to get in to and water leaked all over the floor, no matter what we did. Also the ceiling fans didn't work that well - it was either super slow of flat out fast.

The units are close to Airlie Beach shops, a pleasant 10 to 15 minute walk away.

Other reviews said that this resort didn't always clean the room properly which luckily wasn't a problem for us. Excellent facilities, after 5 days on a yacht we were ecstatic for a washing machine, dryer and air con. There is a window overlooking the living room from the bathroom. There are wooden blinds if it bothers you. I will definitely stay here again. The pool and parking are great. On thing that annoyed me is that it's an extra dollar for toiletries if you need more (which was a pain because who ever did our room forget about shampoo and I needed some). Tinnnnnnny criticism. receptionist was really nice.

Great hotel just out of the noisy hub area. 10 min walk to restaurants and town area. Good secure parking. Empty beer bottles behind curtain and behind couch with sticky floor and sweat odour on uncomfortable couch in TV area was disgusting and evident that cleaning was not done properly.

Reviewed 23 March 2014

Holding a wedding on an island in North Queensland in the wet season has slight risks, however what's the chances that a cyclone will actually be predicted for your wedding day? When planning our dream wedding, this was a risk we took. 48 hours from our wedding day, the ferries were stopping at 6pm and many of our guests were still to arrive on the mainland the following day. With the support of the Airlie Beach community, we organised our entire day in 24 hours, the one area that you don't generally need to take into consideration when planning your wedding is the individual accommodation needs of your guests. Many of the local accommodation providers were extremely helpful to our guests at such short notice, however the help and support of the at Hotel Group went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for. You always hope that your guests are treated with the respect and service that you are treated with when they are coming to your event, and we can say for certain, our guests were. From extending guests bookings; keeping rooms aside for guests who needed new bookings; collecting some guests with their chauffeur service; and blocking a penthouse out for our wedding suite went above and beyond the call of duty. The at Hotel Group has 5 properties which are all ranges, so it was perfect for our guests. The Penthouse that had been set aside for our wedding night and night before the wedding was AMAZING! When we look back now at what we ended up staying in for our wedding night, we could not be happier. It was on the top level at Waters Edge Resort, right in Airlie Beach and had an outside jacuzzi, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (which came in handy the night before the wedding as my 5 beautiful bridesmaids stayed with me), and it was the most perfect location to get ready with hair & make up the morning of the wedding. We have been speechless for the last 2 weeks as trying to find the words that express the heartfelt thanks we want to express to those local businesses who helped us have our dream wedding has been hard. What could have been a disaster to look back on and wish went differently, was turned into something so very special that we will remember forever, and it's because of local businesses like the at Hotel Group who are passionate about what they do and helping their community. Thank you so much.
