“Great Stay with family in 3 bedroom apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Stayed in 3br apt with kids 2&4. Plenty of room, very spacious, full kitchen facilities. Bed was quite comfortable and wonderful views. Apt was clean but had ant issues in the kitchen. Staff were wonderful, loved the guy on reception, very welcoming and friendly. Interacted with our children too. Even offered us a pool toy for the kids. Pools were wonderful, clean and great views. Great location, easy walk to main road and lagoon. NEEDS that supermarket accross the road that will be open soon as we had to hire a car to drive to the next suburb to shop.
Really felt at home here, would def stay again.

Room Tip: Higher you are the better the view. 5th floor was magical.

We arrived for our week in Airlie at the start of a cyclone, it was horrid! All water activities were cancelled due to bad weather and we had to stay in our room or wonder Airlies Main Street in the rain. But thank god our location was convenient, great view, close to everything and the staff were really helpful and accommodating. Shame about the weather as we came for the reef activities but would love to stay again with waters edge.

We stayed at Waters Edge in March 2014.
Arrival check in was easy and staff were helpful.
Rooms and Balcony were big and views were amazing from the third floor apartment.
Everything was clean and self contained apartment was fully stocked with everything we needed, we also made use of the BBQ and Pool areas which were decent in size.
We also hired the hotel car and went to the shops, the process was simple for the car hire.
Best bit was that it was close to town. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money on the 12 PM check out and pay the extra for the higher levels, the view is wo...

Had a lovely 4 night stay at Waters Edge in February 2014 with my new husband who is an lower limb amputee. I chose Waters Edge because it was close to town and only a little way up the hill and even though the driveway gets you puffing it was manageable by myself and hubby.
We were upgrade to a private swimming pool access apartment and this was very nice. People were smoking on their veranda below the original unit allocated and we are both non smokers so asked to be moved. Thank you for accomodating us. The pool access unit turned out to be so much better for my husband. The three pools were clean and have a lovely outlook. We even went into the spa even though it was hot outside and in.

Reception were very helpful and arranged taxi pick up on our departures. Only think I would suggest is maybe some more cooking utensils in the unit as i did cook breakfast and one dinner. Thank you.

Room Tip: Pool Access.

Good stay during the Airlie Beach Regatta. Close to the action and the staff were very friendly.
Room was clean and spacious, nice balcony with a great view. Self-contained room, so service was at a minimum, but we knew that.
Would recommend.

We stayed here on the 13th January for 6 nights. The place itself is amazing rooms are large with all the amenities you need, big verandah and amazing view on pretty much every level.

Problem for us was we were on level 2 room 26 and the peoole above us made constant noise that you would hear directly through the ceiling, it would go all day and all night. Most times it would stop at 12.30am. Dont get me wrong I can handle some noise but this was beyond excessive. I have no idea how people can walk so loud they thump through the ceiling and to make matters worse it then got louder as if they were dragging furnitire from one end of the apartment to the other for 6 hours straight.

Not only did this go into early hours of the morning they were also early rises so the noise would start again from around 5am. We went down to reception and spoke to Jeff about it and he was not interested at all and pretty much fobbed us off which I found very unprofessional. This went on for our entire 6 day stay, the kids couldn't sleep we couldn't sleep and it made us all tired and irritated the next day.

We came here to relax and we paid good money to stay here and our time at waters edge was totally ruined by this one family above us. Jeff would not move us so we had no choice to put up with it. When we first complained to Jeff he said it was a family from Europe and then as we checked out and told him how terrible the stay was the family all of a sudden were America. Jeff didnt want to hear what we had to say upon check out either. He pretty much called my husband a liar to his face, never ever again will I stay at waters edge as there are way better properties around and at a cheaper rate.

Its a shame that one family destroyed our time at this resort as it is really beautiful and close to everything but when you have management that dont give a damn and treat you as an idiot it is very hurtful.

Please take my advice I am extensively travelled and not hard to please at all, I dont care about thread count in sheets and if the pillows are all soft and fluffy I want to be able to have a descent sleep not 4 hours a night because the people above us are inconsiderate 6 nights in a row and Jeff hasn't got a caring bone in his body. He did say he spoke to the family but not sure of that either as the noise just got louder and louder

Take my advice stay else where.
