Let's be blunt - going to Fitzroy Island is not a cheap exercise and I had some trepidation due to mixed reviews. The ferry alone is $240 return for 4. BUT... we had a sensational several days. I admit I also made a mistake with the booking and they were excellent about it. We stayed in an ocean view one...

My partner and I stayed for four nights in a Welcome Bay Suite, which included a full kitchen - Room 319. The view was sensational and we were really happy with the cleanliness and presentation of the room. Despite some previous negative reviews seen on Trip Advisor, we found the staff friendly and pleasant at all times. We enjoyed all...

Fitzroy island is hands down my favourite island to visit and being a local I can say I visit quite regularly and have always enjoyed my time there, whether with friends or family on a day or overnight trip. The ocean suite rooms are fantastic, if you have the extra cash to splash out I definitely would recommend it over...

Really enjoyed our time on Fitzroy Island. We stayed in an Ocean view room at the resort and found it very roomy and comfortable. Fully self contained with a seperate living area/kitchen and bedroom. TheGeneral Store has a limited range of "essentials" so if you are thinking of doing much cooking, bring your own from the mainland. 2 restuarants (Foxy's...

I have contacted the GM of the hotel as the staff on site were most unhelpful at the time and he was unwilling to admit fault or rectify our troubles therefore I feel a post to explain why you should not go here is required: - Ferry staff were rude on the way to the island. - On arrival at...

The island is beautiful, with stunning turquoise water & beaches, the snorkelling is reasonably good also. The pool area is nice & the small cinema convenient. For those wanting an island experience on a budget ( it can get expensive if you need to buy every meal), it is best to stay in the suite rooms - they are self...

Had a fantastic stay at Fitzroy Island Resort. Beautiful facilities included the pool, poolside bar, 2 restaurants, and STUNNING Beach. I would highly recommend the summit loop walk, starting the hike via the turtle sanctuary (there are 2 tours a day for $8/person, book early to avoid disappointment, a must do!). The hike is quite strenuous (quite steep) and about...
