“Friends wedding”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

We attended a wedding at had the reception at Deju Vu restaurant. The food was amazing. We also enjoyed the long lunch on the Sunday at the same restaurant which was equally good, eight courses and very reasonable prized and spread out nicely over the afternoon with a course coming out every half an hour.
Our room 444 was well equipped but had an issue with our air conditioner we we're offer an alternative room but refused as we had settled in this room. A technician came to repair the following day but the AC was unable to be repaired so we ended up moving to room 445 which was also a nice room and had a T.V in the main bedroom which the room didn't have.
The only negative was that we could hear work on the construction site adjacent to our accommodation but this was not to much of an issue.
This accommodation has a lovely BBQ area but no toilet facilities, you need to return to your room.
We would defiantly stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms 7,8,9 and 10 have direct access to pool area but also may incur noise from weddings, but these...

We had a few days here and found this spot to be so close to everything we needed. Our first room was close to all the noise of a wedding and we were moved which was great. So close to walk to everything you need. Our room was large and spacious.

Have no complaints. Spent time here as a couple.

My sister in law got married in Airlie and the reception was held at Deja Vu restaurant at Water's Edge so most of the family booked rooms here. The website for water's edge doesn't have great photos - they really should update them! We stayed for 6 nights, and our apartment got serviced/cleaned once. I actually walked in when the cleaners were in our apartment, and to my horror one lady was sitting at the dining room table reading my newspaper!! The other 4 people were busy cleaning away. It was quite funny because as soon as the lady saw me she got up straight away and began wiping the table haha.. I didn't mind, at least there were 4 people working!

I didn't think that highly of our room - no.6 as it was very noisey. It was on the end of the block and so we heard all the traffic from the road, the nightclubs and the construction which is occurring across the road. Plus there was no pool access, no TV in the master bedroom nor sufficient curtains to block out the sun (we added a blanket over the hanging), the master shower head was like a hose and definitely needs replacing!!, the dining room only seated 4 people, the couches were old and yucky, and the TV was too small for the size of the apartment.

However, as there were many of us I got to see all the other apartments - we definitely had the worst of the lot! If you are going to stay here, try to get no. 9 - it has direct pool access (which is where you spend most time), 6 seater dining table, big LG plasma, small TV in master bedroom, newer and brightly coloured comfy couch, no noise, and a great view! Perfect for a family!

If I didn't see how good no. 9 was, I would have given a bad review - but I would definitely come back to stay at waters edge next time we visit Airlie and request no.9!!!

The food at Deja Vu was absolutely delish!! My partner and I enjoy spending big bucks on good quality food, and we would def recommend Deja Vu.
As part of the wedding reception, we tried Oyster Shooters, Spanner crab pastries, Teriyaki scallops, and lobster skewers -- ALL devine!
For the wedding menu, there was a large selection, but my partner ordered the Pork belly and Kangaroo and I ordered the Calamari salad and Tandoori Chicken. I absolutely loved the tandoori chicken! The calamari was good, but I thought the pork belly was better. My partner loved the kangaroo too.
The service was outstanding - constant smiles and quality service from all staff. Definitely recommend anyone intending on hosting a small wedding to have it at Deja Vu.
The bar closed at 11pm, and everyone was out by 11:30pm. So noise shouldn't be a factor if you are visiting and not attending a wedding. The next day there was another wedding on, and yes we were unable to use the top two pools from 2pm onwards, however the bottom pool and spa are able to be used. And we went up to the BBQ area on the top level and spend all arvo up there enjoying the view and family company.
All in all, and despite our bad luck with rooms, I would recommend Waters Edge (no.9 room) and Deja Vu!! :)

Room Tip: Request no.9 - good furnishings, direct pool access - stay away from no. 6!!!

My partner and I recently stayed at Waters Edge Resort for 10 days after we previously had a shorter stay last year. This is the place to call your home when you visit Airlie Beach. The resort is wonderful, with stunning views from the pools and apartments. Our room was immaculate and the balcony was where we spent most our time to enjoy the view with nibbles and a few drinks at sunset. Made use of the well equiped kitchen and modern washer/dryer. Bed was super comfy and i am curious as to where they purchase the pillows from, they were like clouds! Staff were friendly and helpful. Easy booking reef trips at reception. They had a wedding booked during our stay, and I must admit i had a peek when it was being set up, and wow!, the pool area is a prime and perfect location for such a milestone. We were advised about not being able to use two of the three pools for a few hours during the celebrations, but we were not fussed since it's a short stroll to the lagoon anyway. This resort is in a great location and is a easy walk to everything.
I highly recommend Waters Edge for anyone who wants a memorable, relaxing holiday on the Whitsunday Coast. We look forward to returning very soon.

We were in Airlie Beach for three days and nights for work. On our friends recommendation (below) we booked a three bedroom apartment on a great deal. The apartment and bedrooms were well presented and very clean. The view was spectacular, the amenities great and the restaurant fabulous. It is a short walk down to the main street to visit the bars and clubs, but still in a very quiet location. If we did not have to work everyday, we would have stayed on the balcony enjoying the view and having a few drinks. The reception staff were fantastic, assisting us with our various requests. We will stay here in the future weather on business or pleasure.

Room Tip: The Top Floors have the best views, but the ground floor puts you straight onto the pools.

We were told on arrival (not prior) that there was a wedding on that day but we were not moved to another area of the hotel because we had a great view from our room - we certainly did have that. However most of the pool area was closed for a few hours and there was quite a bit of noise from the wedding party. We then had a few days during the week without wedding guests but with noise from the street works and construction of a supermarket directly opposite from 7 am till 6 pm! This made it a bit unpleasant sitting out on the balcony. The following Friday another wedding party arrived in preparation for a wedding the following day so again a lot of noise around the pool area. The location was great, relatively easy walking up from the shops and lagoon, wouldn't want to walk any further up the very steep hill. The Deja Vu restaurant was fabulous - excellent food, stunning setting, great service and reasonable prices.

Room Tip: Check if there is a wedding on. Ask for a room with direct access to the pool area.
