“relaxing”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Had the best time ever, the kids loved it and so did we very friendly, clean , and helpful staff. The outdoor movies were great and watching the wildlife. My son who is 12 years old made friends by riding his bike around the safe environment. The units were clean and comfortable loved sleeping in the loft, the pool and spa did the tick especially on a hot day . Thanks for a great escape.

Room Tip: If you have a large family ask for rooms near the large manicured lawns right at the front door

Kellys beach, typical Australian retreat, full of wildlife, very friendly staff, the condition of the lodges are of a good standard, fully equipped, clean and tidy. The restaurant is nicely priced with everything freshly cooked, the swimming pool is very clean, with a 5 minute stroll to the little beach. You can walk through the grounds but look out for the children having fun on there scooters or bikes, no i am not waiting them to stop it, kids add to the sound of the place, just be mindful of there energy around the place. all in all a lovely stop over, stay for a week or a night either way you'll be delighted you stopped over. We went there to go to MON REPROS, the turtle sanctuary, its a 5 minute drive and prefect for that as well

Room Tip: Stay as far away from the pool for a quite wake up, or as close as possible if you have children of...

This would be our 5TH. time over as many years and AGAIN have THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay. With 4 children (teenagers included), you could not hope to find a better family destination. A relaxed environment, awesome staff, a hop, skip and jump from the beach, what more could you want? Facilities well cared for, cleanliness A+, nestled in a lush garden environment. Each cabin is self catering, with corner stores, fast food and major supermarkets/chains a very short drive away. LOVED the ability to take a foreshore walk each morning, that the kids could ride their bikes/scooters around and the opportunity to light the communal BBQ for Brekky. If you're looking to lay back, with a family in tow, you couldn't do better! WILL be back...again!

Had a 2 nights stay here in early September. This property is marketed as eco friendly but the large snake in the garden near the pool was a bit off putting. We felt the gardens could do with a good tidy up and uneven paths from tree roots fixed. The villas are basic and tired [especially the bathrooms ]. On a plus though the pool was lovely and actually heated [ from solar I presume ].

As part of being an Nature Tourism Eco-Certified property is to ensure we take care of all the critters, great, small, scaley & slimy. As we border a nature reserve we do get snakes, thankfully the pythons we get keep away the bad ones like coastal taipans that are renowned in this part of Queensland. So as scary as pythons look, they are definitely our friends! We do relocate snake to another part of the resort if they concern our guests.

We do apologise for the paths they were scheduled early September (we have to do it once a year because of all out trees) however we couldn't get anyone out until mid October.

Thanks for taking the time to share you experience here at Kellys Beach Resort, enjoy your travels, where ever they take you!

We have stayed at this Resort many times and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. With friends at Bargara our friends were able to come and have a BB-Que with us or just sit on the deck and watch our children swim or play tennis. I always requested the units overlooking the pool or tennis courts for this reason.
Kellys is not right on the beach so if you want to be able to wake up early and run along the beach this is probably not the place for you. The beach is walking distance though and really with small children there is enough here to keep them happy.

Room Tip: If you are lucky you may get accommodation directly across from the pool or tennis court for the lit...

Kelly's Beach Resort is the one place my family and I go to for a holiday each year. The location, rooms and facilities are all fantastic and the staff are amazing people that we are proud to now call friends. Each trip is memorable for all the right reasons and we've never had a single complaint. The restaurant is lovely with an excellent chef making top quality food. The milkshakes are also great (my preference is lime). It's only a 2 minute walk from the beach and close to the main shops and cinemas, which is always fun to spend the day shopping. Each year we look forward to going there and will continue to go there for many more years.
