“Hit the Spot Nicely”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

We spent a week here and other thsn Mrs Grumpy pants at reception the place was perfect. Big rooms, great living area, big balcony with ocean view. Flat screen tv with loads of channels, kitchen with oven, hob, fridge & freezer, dishwasher, washing machine & tumble drier.
Location was perfect, just a two minutwe walk from the centre of town, nice infinity edge pool at hotel plus a good hot tub, and the outdoor BBQ area on floor 3 was superb.
Would DEFINATELY go back. Dont bother booking trips at reception as its all too much trouble for them, there are plenty of places in town to book trips.

My wife and I were up for a good friends wedding for the weekend and decided to stay at Waters Edge Resort based on a few of my work mates staying there .
I found the Resort Staff to be very friendly and the room was outstanding for the money and the view from our room was just awesome .
The whole Resort is very tidy and the rooms were spotless .
Being located about a 1 minute walk from the main rd is just another winner as it made it alot easier to get around without having to worry about cars etc .

We've stayed here each year for the past four, and it seems to be getting better each time. This time I've made full use of the gym, rather than just walking past it, and I've found it to be full of terrific, easy-to-use equipment. It's air-conditioned, too. The spa is well-heated, so even if it's too cold for the three pools, it's warm in the spa! Love the infinity pools. We always head to Cannonvale on the local bus to stock up on groceries at the start of our stay, so the new Woolworths being built nearby will be terrific. The kitchen in our one-bed studio has everything we need, and is always in good order. Nice to have Blanco appliances. The European laundry is great, too. We love having breakfast on the balcony in the mornings, while at night love watching the lights of the yachts in the sea. Water's Edge is one of the closest resorts to Airlie Beach, so it's a short bit of exercise to get up the start of a big hill (we feel sorry for people who are staying at accom further up the hill!).
I never hear a peep from other rooms, so pretty sure the rooms are well soundproofed. Manager Jeff is always very helpful.

Recommend not to stay here if there is a wedding on as it is noisy and restaurant and pool get taken over. Good location to access town however the work currently underway in the streets look a mess. We were woken by someone starting a boat in the driveway outside reception. Overall stay was expensive and seemed more accommodating of wedding party than staying guests.

Room Tip: Recommend rooms up and away from reception and restaurant.

I have stayed at many resort hotels around the world and i found Jeff and his staff excellent hosts.
They are most helpfull in all respects including tour advice, restaurants and the best places to enjoy your Whitsunday holiday
The hotel facilities are first class and the location is exceptional.

Stayed here a few years back for a couple nights before and after our sailing trip around the Whitsundays on the Solway Lass. Thought the accommodation was great (had suite with spa), staff were very helpful. At one point the guy behind the desk gave me a couple beers from his private fridge to drink by the pool as their restaurant was closed. Can't fault that service. Also a short walk up the hill from town with all the nightlife below. Overall great place to stay when in Airlie Beach.

- Large & clean 1 bedroom apartment with great balcony & views. Dated decor.
- Fantastic location. All the trips pick up from here. Short walk to the high street.
- Nice pools, although too small for lap swimming.
- Helpful reception staff.
- Good value for money (package deal on visitaustralia.com).
- As we stayed only 4 nights and wanted to go on organised trips which departed from the main land, very glad we didn't stay on one of the islands as it would have been expensive & annoying having to catch early ferries every morning.
