Reviewed 25 April 2014

We stayed in a two bedroom with pool access which was great with the kids using the pool all the time. Room was clean when we arrived for our 8 night stay,plenty of room for us and the two kids (5 & 9yrs). The view was great even from our 1st flr balcony. All the reception staff were friendly and helpful from booking a sailing/snorkelling day to where to eat. Perfect location close to shops and beach and the Lagoon is a must with the kids for a change from the resort pools and it's patrolled by life guards. The only downside was the steep driveway but with the stairs it's do able. The new Woolworths is just across the road very handy just remember you have to get back up the driveway with the shopping. We got the local bus from the ferry to the bottom of the driveway on arrival but they don't pickup from there but we just got a taxi on the way home. The beach is a easy walk kids loved collecting shells. There is plenty of food choice if you want, we also BBQ a few times and sat by the pool with our dinner was very pleasant. The kids loved the Cold rock ice cream just down the road. We had a great relaxing stay defiantly want to visit again and stay here.

We had a fantastic stay at Waters Edge Resort in Airlie Beach. It is situated in a fantastic location and the apartments are very spacious for a family. The staff went above and beyond to help us in anyway they could. They knew we were travelling with 2 toddlers and had 2 portacots all set up when we arrived which was fantastic as we had to put them down for a sleep straight away. I highly recommend this property.

We decided to head to Airlie Beach at the last minute on a Friday and booked hurriedly online so were pleasantly surprised to find we'd made a good choice. There was a slight hiccup when we checked in as we found ourselves allotted a room that was not what we had booked. We explained this to the receptionist and he apologised and agreed to move us. We moved to the room we had booked and found we liked the first one better. (We're just the sort of guests you don't need!) Anyway, we explained this and asked if we could stay where we were. "Yes, no problem". We are a couple with our adult daughter and found the apartment extremely roomy with a good size balcony. The three levels of pools are lovely with a great outlook towards the ocean so we spent a lot of time there. The spa pool was nice and hot too which isn't always the case in some establishments. We dined at the on site restaurant on the Saturday night and were surprised to be given a complimentary snack tray of breads and dips to begin. Almost didn't need the meal after that! All in all a nice stay, clean spacious rooms and friendly staff. Would recommend it to anyone and would visit again. It's nice and central to town so you can just park your car and walk everywhere.

We were very happy with our choice of accommodation, great view, great pool, best location and nice rooms with comfy beds. The only negative is if you want your room cleaned during your stay then you need to pay for it, only enough tea bags provided for one day and no condiments in the kitchen like salt and pepper which would have been a nice touch. But all said we were very satisfied.

This property was recommended to us by friends. We booked a high room for the view and it was just spectacular. The reception staff Adam & Nikkita were the friendliest staff I have ever encountered, and took care of all our tour bookings with ease and efficiency, and were knowledable with suggestions of good places to eat etc. The self contained apartment had the most amount of kitchen ware and utensils I've ever seen - even a food processor! I thought this was outstanding, as sometimes you have trouble cooking with minimal utensils etc. We cooked our own dinner and breakfasts and ate on the balcony admiring the beautiful view. The Water's Edge is also the first of the accommodation on 'the hill' so walking to and from town was not taxing at all. Thank you Water's Edge, Adam & Nikkita for a wonderful, faultless stay - one of the best we've ever had. We will definately be back!

Room Tip: Book a high room for the view - you won't be disappointed!

Holding a wedding on an island in North Queensland in the wet season has slight risks, however what's the chances that a cyclone will actually be predicted for your wedding day? When planning our dream wedding, this was a risk we took. 48 hours from our wedding day, the ferries were stopping at 6pm and many of our guests were still to arrive on the mainland the following day. With the support of the Airlie Beach community, we organised our entire day in 24 hours, the one area that you don't generally need to take into consideration when planning your wedding is the individual accommodation needs of your guests. Many of the local accommodation providers were extremely helpful to our guests at such short notice, however the help and support of the at Hotel Group went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for. You always hope that your guests are treated with the respect and service that you are treated with when they are coming to your event, and we can say for certain, our guests were. From extending guests bookings; keeping rooms aside for guests who needed new bookings; collecting some guests with their chauffeur service; and blocking a penthouse out for our wedding suite went above and beyond the call of duty. The at Hotel Group has 5 properties which are all ranges, so it was perfect for our guests. The Penthouse that had been set aside for our wedding night and night before the wedding was AMAZING! When we look back now at what we ended up staying in for our wedding night, we could not be happier. It was on the top level at Waters Edge Resort, right in Airlie Beach and had an outside jacuzzi, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (which came in handy the night before the wedding as my 5 beautiful bridesmaids stayed with me), and it was the most perfect location to get ready with hair & make up the morning of the wedding. We have been speechless for the last 2 weeks as trying to find the words that express the heartfelt thanks we want to express to those local businesses who helped us have our dream wedding has been hard. What could have been a disaster to look back on and wish went differently, was turned into something so very special that we will remember forever, and it's because of local businesses like the at Hotel Group who are passionate about what they do and helping their community. Thank you so much.

We really enjoyed our three night stay in this wonderful resort. We stayed in a two bed apartment, with our two teenagers. It was huge! Great Balcony and sensational views. Comfortable beds meant a good nights sleep. So easy to get to town from here, less than 5 minutes down the hill. We were in Airlie for a wedding so we didn't do the touristy things - this time. We can't wait to come back to explore it all and will definitely be staying at Waters Edge Resort on our return!!
