The Colonial Palms was a perfect place stay in Airlie Beach. It is in a very quiet location, but still close enough (8-10 minute walk) into town and the beach. The manager at the time, Colleen, was such a great asset to this hotel - she couldn't do enough for us. She even drove us to a large grocery store one day - we needed more than just a few things and the small markets in Airlie Beach are limited and expensive! Her daughter was a real sweetheart and very chatty. Don't remember Colleen's husband's name, but the whole family was just amazing. It was Halloween when we were there which is not a big holiday in Aus, but Colleen decorated like crazy, dressed up and provided Halloween treats for all the guests. Unfortunately, it was just a temporary post for them and they weren't sure how much longer they would be there - too bad. The pool area was this beautiful and relaxing little oasis to cool off in, lounge around, watch the birds and have a beverage. There were two pools; our room was off the bigger one. The rooms were generous, little kitchenette, bathroom needed updating but the whole place was slowly being renovated anyway. It was clean, and that's all we usually care about. We would definitely stay here again - 100%!
