This hotel is located across from the Woolworths.... and it is an easy walk from the down town area..... at the bottom of the hill.... and there are stairs so you don't have to struggle walking up the hill.....(most spots in Airlie Beach are up very steep hills and walking can be difficult) We took advantage of the infinity pools...

Every year my sisters and I have a weekend together. There is 5 of us and we decided Airlie beach would be our destination this year. Waters Edge Resort is a 5 minute walk to the Main Street of Airlie. The rooms are above basic and have a nice view, they are self contained if you wish to cook. The... More

expensive but dirty place even in the room, no entertainment or restaurant as they claim. The complex is far away from the centre of the City. The complex is noisy during the day and at night because it is on the corner. There is small parking facilities but not for a 4X4,

Still staying here as i write this review. This place is up a hill which while pushing a 4 year old in a stroller a couple of times a day has given me calves like Lance Armstrong. Ocean views maybe but it's not exactly close at all to the water. The pools are nice and the rooms are adequate at... More

Only cereal, yoghurt, juice, toast. No hot food. Close to everything there is to see in Airlie Beach. The entrance to the Hotel is very steep, there are stairs but... More

Stayed 2 nights, before and after our sailing trip. They were kind enough to hold our excess luggage for us at no charge. Our room over looked atleast 1 of the pools and the beach in the background. The rooms are very large compared to a normal hotel room. Our single king was more like a studio apartment with a... More

The description of luxury apartment with ocean view is 80% incorrect with no luxury and no ocean view. They were only correct with the word apartment! I paid a lot of money based on photos and the description of ocean view room which was not the case in our room. We asked for a room change and got a demeaning... More

This is not a hotel !! For the price we paid, it was just nog good enough. Very good location, close to the village centre, allthough one needs to climb a quite steep hillside when arriving at the place. Excellent small pools, 3 of them. Rooms are large.... that's it. A bit worn out, small things malfunctioning. Rooms are not... More

Our family of three stayed her for three nights. We needed somewhere to stay to get our land legs back after a week of cruising.
