A very relaxing short stay

The only thing we did't like was the bed.
It was comfortable but it felt like it rolled down out to the side

Wonderful little paradise

Lovely resort, staff friendly and food was great at Foxys bar. Breakfast buffet good value with many choices. Fastcat ride to the resort was smooth and they took care of their passengers well. Summary " A little piece of paradise". GM Glen MacDonald runs a fantastic resort nothing was too much trouble. We will definately return.

Great Location!

Fitzroy Island, was definately a surprise package! Beautiful waters and scenery around the island. A perfect getaway, snorkeling off the island was impressive, saw turtles, reef sharks, and colourful coral. Also paddle boarded. Everything was a great experience. The pool bar was great, but just wish it was open longer than 4pm. The evenings were very peaceful.
Will definately return.

Beautiful resort with relaxed atmosphere...

Desperately needed a break from a miserable Melbourne winter and wanted something within easy travelling distance. Fitzroy Island fit the bill perfectly. An easy 45 minute ferry transfer from Cairns and my wife and I were transported to a tropical oasis with palm trees swaying and inviting, warm water washing the coral beaches. The weather was brilliant, the resort/room/facilities/staff were first rate and it was easy to fall into a relaxed mode very quickly. Lying by the pool, I had time to read a full book - start to finish - for the first time this year! The views from the Summit peak were amazing and we even managed to spot a snake. Being able to snorkel over coral and see bountiful, colourful fish right off the beach was an added bonus. Four days I will not forget quickly. Had a great time and would recommend the island and the resort to anyone, whether you are in desperate need of a break or not. Fantastic value - hope to do it again sometime soon.

Very Relaxing Break

Fitzroy Island was the perfect getaway for us, we were able to do as much or as little as we wanted, we were a little disappointed with the snorkelling only because of water clarity and the damage that has occurred to the coral, meals were nothing to write home about and were a little over priced but generally not too bad, overall our stay was very enjoyable and yes we would highly recommend Fitzroy Island to anyone.

Relaxing

My wife and I had a relaxing stay at Fitzroy Isl. We found it a little busy with the day trippers but they never got in the way of the resort. We were a little disappointed with the set up and location of the Souvenir combined general store. We also found it a fair distance to walk from the beach on the resort side and Foxy's to grab a cold drink etc. Most of the staff were friendly, greeted you with a smile. Our bathroom area was dark, lacking much light and the shower leaked water under the door to the floor area excessively, hence the two stars. Would we go back again, yes but not in a hurry.

True relaxation

We enjoyed a relaxing stay and were well looked after. The tours offered were good, though someone giving information about the reef on the glass bottom boat would be interesting. Having everything in walking distance but not crowded was great.

A beautiful spot. The stay could have been much better

Was a beautiful island. Found the food to be of poor quality eating at both foxys and then at the resteraunt. The resteraunt was good flavour however the lamb was cold when it arrived.

The rooms were nice but not all that clean and needed maintenance with the levers on doors, windows all broken off. The fan also clicked as it went around when on which was pretty annoying. Further to this although a very peaceful spot there was a him coming through the walls from either fans or air conditioning unity in other rooms.

We had a great snorkel as we left and is a beautiful spot but certainly needs some more attention to detail in everything that is done at the resort.

Grest location for winter break

Travelling solo, I found it ideal for a short "winter" break (upto 4 days) just 45 minutes by fast ferry from Cairns. Foxy's Bar is open for lunch and dinner and is a cheaper alternative to Zephyr's Restaurant (breakfast and dinner), and these are the only eating options on the island. Challenging hike/walk to the lighthouse and summit with excellent views. Good for a range of water activities.

Very pleasant

The room was lovely, service was great and staff were brilliant. We were very disappointed with the meals except breakfast which was excellent, very limited choice of food, maybe some smorgasbord type evening meals might be nice. Not a lot of activities for children better suited to couples or individuals.

Beautiful! Lovely location and great outdoor activities!

Everything was amazing,
There are plenty of things to do on the Island, the water activities were great saw a turtle everyday!
Pool was also amazing with swim up bar, cocktails were so yum!
Food could have a few more healthier options though..

But room was great, we stayed in the ocean suite and had a great view :)
So relaxing and chilled.

Amazing island! Will cherish memories forever!

Almost everything went perfectly! All the places we stayed knew in advance we were coming and rolled out the red carpet.

There was however, only one minor issue. We didn't get our booking code for the plane tickets in our email (this was rectified by calling the airport). Not a major problem, but it did make it a tad difficult to customize our flight.

Island Paradise

This is a fabulous holiday in our one bedroom unit. Outfitted with full kitchen, dining /living room and separate bedroom, plus balcony. This unit suited us exactly. The location was unbelievable and snorkeling with turtles the highlight, right outside our unit. The only downside was that the occupants of the upstairs unit were very noisy and all footfalls could be heard amplified through the ceiling. But a call to reception and all was quiet, service was outstanding by all staff, especially the room attendants. Any requests were no bother. Overall this was one of our best holidays.

Perfect mini break in idyllic location

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fitzroy Is. The island is pristine and stunningly beautiful. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable with gorgeous water views.
Staff were friendly and very helpful.
My only suggestion is perhaps light meals could be purchased from the pool bar.
Overall a wonderful location I would recommend to others

Great spot, but...

Staff excellent, restaurant also, bar/cafe expensive.
Rooms excellent except for footstep noise from above, a real negative, ...answer..get third floor or beach cabin..
Perhaps families with toddlers should all be put in one end taking all 3 floors, so other quiet relaxers can have peace, especially to sleep.

Great Tropical Queensland Island Resort

Have stayed at many island resorts over the years and Fitzroy Island Resort is up there with the best of them..... excellent facilities (albeit, no catamarans to use), excellent standard throughout.
Don't tell everyone though, don't spoil it.

Lovely Resort - Great Staff

We stayed 4 nights in an Ocean Suite. The room was spacious and well appointed, balcony a great spot to have drinks and nibbles as the sun set.
Foxy's was good for lunch and Zephyrs for dinner. Breakfast at Zephyrs (continental or full buffet) was nice, but pricey. You can bring food to the island and make breakfast if you want to save a bit.
Staff were a stand-out, especially Beck and John.
We are already planning our next stay!

January 2013 - 7 Days

Kids loved it. Lots to do with bushwalks, canoes, ocean trampoline, snorkelling off the beach and mocktails at the pool bar. Even have an in-house cinema and games room. Food was good - huge portions. Recommend 1/2 board to get your breakfast and dinner included.
Rooms could do some maintenance - very dusty in parts but good facilities with washer/dryer and kitchenette.
