Fabulous family holiday

We stayed here from the 20th - 25th March. We had a fantastic time here, our 19mth old daughter loved it. The Living Reef Lagoon is amazing, haven't seen anything like it. We had an Ocean Balcony room on the ground floor, which we found was great. Beautiful view, clean and tidy and having the air con was great. We loved the activities on the Island. The Fish Feeding Tour is a must, we had Louise, she was fantastic. It was an amazing experience for the 3 of us. Fish feeding at Lover's Cove was also one of the highlights for us. A half day trip to Whitehaven Beach, was also amazing. The staff on the Whitsunday Cruise Boats are truly fantastic and very professional. We found a half day there to be enough for us with a little one. We would have liked to do more activities like the Daydream Discovery Boat, Jet Ski's and the Helicopter Hot Laps however due to the weather and running out of time we weren't able too. Definitely next time. We were a little disappointed on finding out once we had already booked our trip that half the eating venues would be closed. However we worked our way around it and it certainly didn't ruin our trip. We all really enjoyed the buffet breakfast and the carvery buffet was great too. As a Chef myself I thought the Chef's do an amazing job, considering the heat they have to work in and the enormous amount of food they produce each day. Well done, we loved it. We would love to return when it reopens after the refurb next year, however probably wouldn't until everything was open so we could experience everything the Island offers. Overall it was a lovely holiday. Hope to see them get back on there feet soon.

Lovely

It will be nice after the renovation. The daily room service needs to be improved. The tours are fabulous. There need to be more options for food i.e dinner. Water bottles at $4.00 each are expensive.

Beautiful but limited dining

Beautiful resort and staff were friendly however dining options were limited and only during set times. Most of the cafe's and shops were closed and transport to the south end stops at 2pm which is ridiculous considering the pool and facilities at that end of the island. We were told restaurants and cafes would not be closed just prior to leaving but when we got there they were closed. Biggest issue was central eating area and meeting place was not cooled at all (not even fans) for guests and worse for staff. Also be aware that without notice hundreds of day trippers can invade the island for the day at one time and weddings can close main snorkeling beach. With notice this could have been managed better. Rooms were lovely and air conditioned and again, the staff were lovely just too much cost cutting happening with closing venues, operating times, cooling in main areas and transport. Still managed to enjoy our time and would go again just would be better prepared.
