Spectacular surroundings and wonderful service

Very happy with our trip to Fraser Island from start to finish we were picked up on time and transfers were efficient and operators friendly. Our room was clean and met our needs the resort was beautiful and well app appointed with Spa Shop and swimming pool and many bars and restaurants The buffet breakfast was one of the best I have.encountered loved the pancake machine. Staff were friendly and the surroundings were spectacular. Loved our Beauty spots tours wished we could of stayed at Lake McKenzie longer though. Would of loved a transport system to drop off at Lake Mckenzie and pick up for a extra fee of course that would be magnificent!!

A bit expensive for what you get

The resort was nice overall, but I thought it was not good value for money.
- Wifi came as an expensive extra, and the broadband is not even good in the rooms far from the lobby.
- Not many options to exercise: running not recommended because of the dingoes, no gym available, pools are more for recreational purposes and tennis equipment is not well maintained.
- The room itself was nice enough, but was quite dark. There was limited amount of sunlight during the day and only weak lamps for the evening.
- There were little efforts made to entertain guests, appart from the guided tours, the pools and the bar.

Value for money set aside, I enjoyed the stay. Staff was helpful and friendly, breakfast was great, and the 4WD guided tour was a great day out. It was a good 3 night break.
