“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

We spent 4 nights in a queen room with open plan ensuite which was comfortable. The mattress was too soft for us though and we kept rolling into the middle! The views are amazing and it's very quiet which we like. It's a bit of a hike up and down the driveway and hill though. But helps if you want to work off dinner! Have had a relaxing time and recommend this resort to anyone looking to stay for a while :)

We stayed at the Pinnacles Resort for 5 days in July and were really impressed with our apartment. It was very spacious and clean, furnishings were in good condition, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for preparing our own meals. The apartments also have their own laundry (washing machine and dryer) which was handy for us.

We booked into a sea view room with a spa and were not disappointed with the view - amazing views of the sea from our balcony and bedroom window! The Pinnacles has its own swimming pool overlooking the sea, as well as a sauna and gym. The resort manager was very helpful in providing us with advice on what we could do during our stay at Airlie beach too.

The place has pretty strict noise regulations for guests, which we were appreciative of.

The resort itself is on a pretty steep hill (and you have to walk up the hill further to get to your apartment), but it makes the views that much better. You can catch a taxi from the town centre to your apartment for about $5. Alternatively the walk up is good exercise, especially after a nice meal in town :)

Room Tip: Our sea view room had really nice views,

We will be back for sure.
This place was one of the best located places we have ever stayed at.
Yes, it is on top of a BIG STEEP hill....but its certainly worth the hike up and down - the views are superb....(its a $5 cab ride from the main street to the apartments - well worth it!!)

We had a two bedroom balcony spa apartment and it was truly beautiful.
it was clean and fresh, and had very handy complimentary amenities (inc washing powder and dish-washing tables and liquid) free video hire, bbq webbers etc
The infinity edge pool is gorgeous and the views go for miles.
The staff were fantastic, the front office ladies were lovely and helpful (gave us lifts in the buggy up the hill when they were able)

This is a great alternative for anyone who wants a bit more flexibility than being 'stuck on an island' but still experience all that the majestic Whitsundays have to offer.
Thanks very much Pinnacles for a lovely 7 night stay.
We will be back next year

The perfect escape for cold southerners - fantastic views, spacious, beautiful rooms & large balconies that capture the sun all day long. Located high on the hill overlooking Airlie Beach with views that last forever of the sea - something we didn't grow tired of. The staff were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure our stay was the best it could be. We were on a family holiday and enjoyed every minute of our time in this resort, we will definately be coming back for another relax and recharge. Convenient location to services and with the added benefit of bird watching opportunities from your balcony, the following birds visited during our stay sunbirds, swallows, cockatoos and bush-stone curlews.

Room Tip: Penthouses have large extended balconies that capture lots of sun all day, stay on the western side...

Thanks Dee for taking time out from your studies to write this review.

I'm glad you and the family had a great time with us. Those extra large balconies are heavenly on winter days soaking in the beautiful sun.

We would love to welcome you all back to Pinnacles Resort and Spa very soon. Just remember we do get quite busy over the school holidays so best to book in advance especially if you want to guarantee yourself your favourite apartment.

Kind Regards,

I have stayed here two times so far and I can guarantee that there will be a third time! The apartments are spacious, furnishings are modern and views are amazing. Whether you are staying here as a couple, family or with a few friends this place is ideal! Having a few champers in your own jacuzzi on the balcony while you look out at the Coral Sea is a perfect way to spend a day/night. Large kitchen with everything you need if you decide to eat in. Of course, there is the hill... yes it does seem to go on forever and is a bit of a killer but the taxi drivers are happy to give you a ride up from the town for about $5 if need be. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Spent about a week here in July. Friendly staff and beautiful big rooms which are very well fitted out, including spa on balcony. View from the pool is no doubt one of the best in Arlie, well worth the short walk up to rooms. And they are close to main street and the town's central public lagoon area. Would definitely come back to stay again. Two thumbs up.

Reviewed 27 June 2013

My friend and I stayed here for the past 6 nights and arrived home today. We had apartment 27, two bedroom apartment with a Jacuzzi on the balcony. We had read the reviews before booking at Pinnacles, so we had been warned about the hill, however we didn't realise how long the hill was. Not only is it just the road up but then Pinnacles driveway which is even more steep. In saying that, it works off some of the dinners and drinks from down the bottom and the view when you finally reach your room is gorgeous. The reception staff were lovely and checking in and out were easy. Brent was always around the place and if we needed anything, he was on it!

It does have a very strict noise policy, which was made very clear to us, but worth it if you are after a relaxing time away.
