Just finished a weeks stay at the Coral Sea Resort. Our suite was perfect and we loved the balcony with spa and hammock. The location is great for walking to the restaurants or going the other way to Abell Point marina for some shops and cafes and for the boat trip departures. Our suite was clean and very comfortable with... More

Great place to stay after a week on the water. Pleasant staff who work from small and busy reception. Restaurant and bar staff also friendly. Pool is quite nice with great location and pool side restaurant was good for lunch. North facing rooms are older and from what I saw the rooms in the wing above the car park had... More

We didn't stay at the resort, however we used the facilities on a couple of days on a $25/day pass which allows you to use the pool and includes lunch on a set menu , which is well worth the money. The views from the pool area are amazing, the service is excellent, so if you want a chilled day,... More

Spent the day laying by the pool. Had a great lunch, affogato and wine! Very friendly waiters and the best location in Airlie Beach ! We took advantage of the Swim & Lunch package which was a great find. Hope return and stay for a few days.

Amazing views from our Bay View room but the rest was rather underwhelming. Spacious and clean but looks like a condo from the 80s that never was upgraded. The rest of the property is also on the same level, clean and well maintained but rather un-inspiring which sounds a bit odd in such a nice location. The swimming pool area... More

Garden view=view of concrete wall. We understand that our room was one of the cheapest rates but to be given a view of a wall? Really not good enough, seeing as you are paying a premium to stay here.

Lovely setting, right on the sea near Able Point Marina. Great sea views, particularly from the penthouse which we had first night. Stayed four nights and sailed the Whitsundays. Would strongly recommend the hotel but.....the front of house staff and restaurant staff are not particularly warm, friendly or welcoming. This can only be a management/training issue. Reading some of the... More
