We arrived via ferry from Hamilton Island - Coral Sea is sort of between the ferry terminal and the town centre, so you can walk between the two. This was the start of our journey, we were moving on to a bareboat charter and the marina was between the ferry terminal and Coral Sea - quite close to the Coral Sea and a pleasant board walk with ocean outlook.
The Coral Sea was a great start - we had a Coral Sea Spa Suite, it had a little kitchenette, lounge area with a nice size balcony with a spa and hammock, and the bed was the most comfortable I reckon I've had in this sort of accommodation - even she thought so.
The only problem with the room we had was it faced east so in the early morning we got the bright sun straight into our apartment - BUT that made for a brilliant outlook in the evening when you want to open up and enjoy the view.
Pool looked inviting, but we declined the invitation - sitting at the settings on the lawn with good friends and good wine was much better - just a brilliant outlook and so relaxing.
Staff were very good and only to willing to help - breakfast was basic but ample, that said we didn't want to smash the diet too early in our trip anyway so they did us a favour.
Loved it and would stay again if we were up that way again - one day maybe.

Stayed here in July 2014. Beautiful views, and nice room. Wish we had of stayed longer. The restaurant food was fantastic. Had the most divine dessert, the chef's special- the deluxe chocolate plate. Would go back just for the dessert. Enjoyed the pool, and would return to this restaurant.

Room Tip: Get a room that has a view of the beachfront. We had a corner room still had a glimpse of the sea, n...

Stayed five nights at this lovely resort - pool area and restaurant just perfect - magical setting with views across the bay. Our oceanfront suite had great views and a nice big balcony to sit and enjoy the coral sea. Room was spacious, well furnished with updated furniture and a very comfy bed - all clean and well kept. Great location being walking distance to town and marina side - very convenient. Couldn't get wifi to work tho - a small criticism. Breakfast and dinner both delicious in a very nice newly furnished restaurant with good service.

We stayed here for 5 nights as a base for the Islands and reef trips. We stayed in the Sea Spa suite with the hammock which we both felt was a bit on the small side for the price. Overall though the place was well located and very clean with beautiful views in the morning at breakfast over the pool to the sea.

The breakfast itself was just a standard continental buffet breakfast included as part of the room price with the option to pay for a cooked one.

Location is very good and the front desk staff were very helpful. In summary, if I had the same budget again I would probably look at an apartment to rent rather than stay here but if you want to splash out for a few nights with a nice pool then this is the place.

Room Tip: The pricier rooms have the view and the garden ones look off to the side. Depends on what you want...

We booked a coral sea suite which has everything in the advertisement, spa, hammock, etc., with the beautiful coral sea right in front of the balcony. Stunning views. Besides, the hotel is close to everywhere.

Had such a great experience. Visited in July 2014(Australian winter- my summer I'm from USA) It is such a great place to stay - food, staff, rooms, etc were all exceptional! Nice walk to town any time of day! Close (walking distance if you want) to Whitsunday's Ferries. Aiirlie Beach is Lively any time of day! Visit AirlieBeach.com to book your next travel. They took care of everything (hotel-great barrier reef,hostel, camping or whatever you wanted to do). My first travel to Australia and I would give it 5 Stars!

Room Tip: All Rooms Are Great!

We stayed two days at this Hotel and had some trips to the Whitsundays. The Location is outstanding, the reception (and Olivier in particular) was fantastic.

We really enjoyed the stay. We had great rooms (garden view), the breakfast was the best one we had during our 3 weeks journey. The Hotel is very Close to the City Centre.

If we return to Australia, we will definitively choose this Hotel again.

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms are the best but garden view was also a great choice (value for the money).
