We just stayed at Pinnacles in January this year for three nights. We stayed in Apartment 11, which is a three bedroom with Jacuzzi. We are a family of 6 and this apartment was perfect. We arrived early as we were already in Airlie having been on a charter boat for the previous seven nights, however our room was already ready to go and we were promptly transported via golf buggy to our apartment. We could not believe how beautiful it was upon entry, it was immaculately presented and had everything we needed.

All bedrooms had ocean views but obviously the two at the front were much better. This apartment was just a stones throw away from the pool, which was again amazing.

The apartments are located just a short walk to town which has great dining and shopping options. The walk back is up a hill, so if you aren't into walking I would recommend a taxi which are plentiful and are happy to drop you rig to your apartment door for a very small charge (when I say to your door I recommend that, as the actual driveway is probably the steepest part of the walk)

Overall we feel Pinnacles is worth every penny, and quite honestly we were so reluctant to leave, we will definitely be back.

My son and his partner came from Amsterdam and their friends from London to see the New Year in in Airlie Beach. We had a 2 bedroom ocean view and a 1 bedroom apartment. The two br had a hot tub on the very large balcony overlooking the ocean and the apartment had everything you could possibly need. The design was perfect for two adult families in that the bedrooms and bathrooms were separated from each other by the living area so we each had our own space. The resort is one of the highest overlooking the coral coast so a nice breeze was felt on the balcony making it a lovely place to entertain or read or soak in the spa.

Room Tip: All the ocean view rooms are set back from one another so that you do not have other people on the b...

Great hotel. Nice and large rooms. Hotel is located on top of a hill, making the view on the sea from the balcony or the swimming pool absolutely amazong. Really peaceful place. Some rooms have jacuzzi, also with the stunning view. Loved it.

My husband & I stayed at pinnacles resort & spa for 7 nights for our honeymoon & have to say we could not fault it! Staff were helpful from the minute we booked in! Our room was amazing, big, clean with a huge balcony with private jacuzzi, outside seating area on our balcony was perfect for soaking up the sun on the sun beds & having a few drinks before heading out for the night. We highly recommend this beautiful 5 star resort & hope we can stay again in the future...We had the most amazing, memorable stay at pinnacles, memories that will last a lifetime!

We just checked out this morning from Pinnacles and I should say we were not disappointed. We've stayed at a few resorts that claim to have ocean views in Australia and overseas but nothing has even been half as good. The room was ready at the check-in time specified, was well cleaned and it smelled divine. Great work by the management. We were in room 30 which was right on top of the resort, just a heads up for those "non-active" tourists "It is a steep climb up". You could either challenge yourself for 5 minutes (which is how long it takes) or cheat and get a cab from the taxi rank nearby for $5 (which is what we did).

All in all, great room, amazing views and perfect location.

We came to Airlie for our honeymoon and stayed at Pinnacles. What a great choice, we were given a bootle of wine, chocs and complimentary bottles of water. We stayed two nights but wished we could have stayed longer.
