10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent accommodation, easily accessible from the ferry terminal. Optional car hire & snorkling gear, very close to bush hikes across the island. Great nature watching spots close by (koalas, rock wallabies, birds). Lovely location with outdoors facilities that are kept very clean. We stayed in a safari tent which had electric lighting, power points and fan. Unfortunately only had one night there but would have loved to stay for a while longer. Highly recommend!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fab location, jungle tent something a bit different. Had a fan and chargers in the tent which was great. Bed really comfortable. Amenities all brilliant - well equipped kitchen, free pool, clean bathrooms etc. Also hired an open top car at a very reasonable price and the owner was great giving us lots of tips off where to go on the island. Owner/workers fantastic, we just had news that airlines were stopping flying leaving us stuck in Australia. As we don't have an AUS SIM they let us borrow the phone, provided us with a beer and were so friendly. Also were able to leave our bags the whole next day and use showers before we caught a late ferry back to the mainland. Would definitely recommend if coming to magnetic Island!

7.9 Good
Pros: Staff were very friendly and let us leave bags before checking in. The location was perfect and a short walk to the beach and the forts walk where you can spot a koala along the way. We stayed in a private double which looked newly renovated. Plenty of plugs and usb sockets and good aircon with the addition of a fan if it was too cold. The bar seemed to have plenty of deals and they served some decent bar snacks. There are events every night and it’s easy to meet new people if you want but also good for a relaxing getaway.
Cons: The only two main downsides are the bathrooms and kitchen facilities. They are both open to the elements meaning lots of bugs and grime. Pasta with a side of beetle wasn’t really our plan. The light wasn’t working in the toilets at the bar either and the bins were overflowing most of the day.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Free bird feeding and the other animals around. The cabins are quite nice as well
Cons: Lots of insects and dirt in the bathrooms.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the stay, atmosphere, little bungalows,pool, location, the island in general

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nearest beach was Gregory Beach which I could see from my unit window. A nice quiet ground floor room on the far side of the resort, next to the guest pool with a good view. Resort was green with plenty of trees and birdlife including a tame curlew who did the rounds in the afternoon. I chose to self-cater but there are options for food and drink. A good vibe about the place. I will certainly visit again!
Cons: Nothing
7.1 Good
Pros: The room was great- large, modern, comfortable King size bed, huge tv
Cons: They only make up your room every third day "to save you money". Free internet is stated as inclusive but you really have to pay $20 for a 5 hour voucher. Our back patio was against the swimming pool which was nice but the band played LOUD on Friday and Saturday nights until late - no sleep before our early dive. The bistro food is barely average at best. Great bartender, lousy reception.
6.3 Good
Pros: Great spot near Geoffrey bay and Alma bay! So close to shops, pub, and cafe.
Cons: Room smelled of possibly mould not sure but very funky. So much that we checked nearby hotels we knew for vacancies. We shut the lights off and opened both doors to get some fresh air in and as few bugs as possible. This helped but was not the solution. Sheets were clean. Bathroom mirror was at least 20% rusted, refrigerator and shelves as well. I live near the sea too and understand this happens quickly if things aren’t kept clean and dry. If we had read reviews that hinted at this or paid a lot less for the room I would have been prepared for rust and smells. Front desk staff was helpful. Even the kids couldn’t believe the smell. Won’t be back.

Pros: The property although dated was clean and comfortable. The hosts were extremely helpful. They picked us up from the ferry and took u back after the stay. The property was easy to get around. My wife has a mobility scooter and it was easily manouverable. For the money it was ok but if u want to pay more for a more upmarket accommodation I would suggest going to Horshoe bay.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: It was a stunning location. Quite and private. Overlooking lush gardens and rainforest. Felt like you were a million miles from anywhere. The breakfast provided was simple but so delicious. The private deck was beautiful, so relaxing and being able to sit and watch the birds and see the wallabies hop by was magic. Felt instantly relaxed as soon as Debbie let us into the room. She was a wonderful unobtrusive host. Would recommend a stay for anyone wanting to take a break from the world. There is WIFI, but we didn't use it. Great place to just disconnect.
Cons: Only thing would be the shower head. It kind of sprayed everywhere a bit. But everything else made up for that small opportunity for improvement.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great and the view out to garden from the balcony was very special. Wished we could have stayed longer
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location was wonderful . Debbie has furnished the place beautifully . A really tropical and exotic experience.
Cons: The fact that it wasn’t ours! Now we have to make our place similar, which means a lot of planting to get that real tropical forest setting.

4.0 Okay
Pros: Location!
Cons: It wasn't very clean, there were marks on the walls everywhere, it appeared the place had not been vacuumed, there were spider webs everywhere - including a huge black spider that we saw go under the bed, and the mattress in the main room was covered in dust and dirt. The place in general was a bit run down. This unfortunately made our stay not overly enjoyable
