Stayed at Boathaven Spa for four nights in August, and although in a good location close to town, the many small annoyances left a poor impression. Our unit was very poorly maintained, doors failed to shut properly and blinds could not be closed, meaning early morning light streamed into the unit from 6am onwards. Despite having spent an extra $50 p/n for a child, no towel was supplied for the extra person. Unit is not serviced, and it is expected you remove trash and clean the unit, however beyond a single use pack of dishwasher/dishwashing powder, no extra supplies are provided. Do you really want to purchase garbage bags, cleaning products and toiletries for a brief stay? Shortly after arriving (at 2pm in the afternoon), a grumpy man came to the door to request we not slam the doors (fair enough, even if you do have to slam them to get them shut), but then failed to address a loud balcony spa party at 3:30am two days running??? Finally, WIFI was terrible at best.
Reception staff were pleasant, but on the balance there is far better value for money and relaxation to be found elsewhere in Airlie Beach
