“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

We stayed at Mission Reef Resort overnight The complex seemed relatively new and the rooms were bright and clean. Our room had a fridge and microwave and secure parking. The receptions was friendly. It represented good value for money - particularly compared to the price of other accommodation in Mission Beach.

We stayed as a family for 3 nights as a stop over point between Townsville and Cairns with 2 adults and 1 child in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was huge! 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, full kitchen (oven, stove, toaster and microwave), dining and living area, WIFI and a balcony with ocean views over to to Dunk Island. The resort has secured parking, a great pool and private spa. Remember to plan for the spa and book your time with the resort manager.

The resort is in an ideal location - 1 block back from the beach, a short walk to a kids playground including skate park and basketball ring and nearby restuarants and 1pub. It was a great location to base a holiday in the region and we did daily hiking trips through the rainforrests and visited nearby localities such as Tully, Mission Beach and El Arish.

Susan is very friendly and accommodating; having 1 resort manager does mean she may not always be available the very second you want her but she's never far away (usually attending to another client's wishes).

The barbecue facilities near the pool are fantastic; and behind the administration desk is a large collection of brochures and flyers for local activities, restaurants and selection of maps.

We would have liked to have stayed longer; and will definately stay here again when visiting the region.

Room Tip: Apartment 9W provides ocean views over to Dunk Island. The resort is perfect for families with chil...

Reef resort is a lovely quiet clean & inviting location to vacate. The apartments are large, bright & very comfortable with ocean views from balcony.
Service is excellent & we love the outside hot tub hidden in amongst the beautiful rainforest garden. Top choice for any occasion.

Stayed for three days. But only because it was already booked and paid for. Right from the original booking I felt the owner was just pretending to be friendly, and her English wasn't good enough to understand what I was saying easily. We left a voucher at home by mistake and she said if she didn't get it within 3 days, she would charge our credit card double! Breakfast was supplied but it was home brand wheat-bix and cornflakes in Chinese take away containers, home brand poppers, and homebrand milk! And half a loaf of home brand white bread!! Terrible! Plus the fan in our bedroom made a racket all night but nothing was done when I mentioned it. Never again!

I've just finished my third stay at the Mission Reef Resort and once again thoroughly enjoyed my mini holiday. The best aspect is the large rooms, full size rooms. In a world of cramped crowded rooms Mission Reef it is a genuine pleasure to find a unit with a full sized fridge, stove, dishwasher, double sink, microwave, bath and massive storage cupboards. The rooms have always been clean and fresh. I always bring lots of groceries and cook all our meals. We love the pool and surrounds and the close proximity to the beach. Great for long walks with views of Dunk Island. I have always found the office staff most helpful and accomodating. I love the fact that there is free wi-fi. Having a DVD player helps make up for the poor tv reception. Love this place.

I always come back rested

Room Tip: Just check your room can access the wi-fi. I've never had a bad room

Sufficient. Expensive. Service can be hit and miss, usually better than not. There is secure parking... When the gate openers work. Rooms have good aircon, good tvs and reception, good showers... Everything else is alright...

The place is nice and new. Usually clean, dead flies behind the tv etc... But I felt like everything was done on the cheap and wasn't well thought through. None of the rooms have personaility... They are all bland. Bland is definitely the word.

I booked a package deal and was so disappointed...beginning with the rude reception , continuing with broken facilities, dirty appartment and appalling cheapskate ( Homebrand longlife milk... cornflakes in a takeaway container ) continental breakfast for which I was charged $30 when my voucher said it was included... could go on.. needless to say wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

Very disappointed with your review. I tried to help when you were here and you would not accept any offer we made at the time.

I also offered you a free weekend package to which we received no reply.
