An absolutely wonderful experience

It was so hard to leave this wonderful paradise. Not only is the retreat in a beautiful location the accommodation and service was amazing. The staff were so accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and plentiful and always served with a smile. We had a great time kayaking, hiking, swimming and relaxing, so much to see - turtles, rays, reef, goannas and butterflies. Heaps of time to just relax and switch off to enjoy the peace on the island. Thank you to all the staff who made our stay so special.


Our stay was beautiful overall.

But I think that the managers Charlton needs to hire Queensland’s not overseas backpackers that just simply really don’t care. The chefs where fantastic, food was brilliant. You Charlton where a fantastic person. You just need to be firmer with staff. (Spanish staff). The girl that is in the day spa and yoga is brilliant. But when people are spending top dollar, you really need to make it memorable for couples. Thank you and we really hope that our feed back helps you make things better for all future patrons.
