I stayed here two nights alone with my baby. The boat transfer guys were brilliant and very helpful in attending to my luggage. When arriving the reception staff had lots of information and were friendly. My room was perfect, a ceiling fan, AC, a fridge and large bed. Coming from the uk the ac was really helpful. The bed was...

There are many indications that the resort is running out of steam. There is nowhere to put your things in the shower- so keep a good hold of your soap. The shower doesn't look clean. There are very few options for food purchases, such that we paid $75 each to go back to Cairns to buy a stack of fresh...

Hi Rodney B, My apologies that the Resort missed your expectations., we of course greatly appreciate all comments from our guests good, bad or indifferent as it is an important part of our process moving forward. The Resorts outlets (Foxy’s, Zephyrs & General Store) are clearly listed and described in all resort collateral and online. The shop is by no...

To start things off the area is really beautiful, but that's all the resort has going for it. Day 1 our shower drain was blocked and the room flooded after a short shower. Many of the ceiling lights in our room didn't work meaning some rooms were dark also. The room's phone was a dud also. The food prices were...

Fitzroy island is worth a visit. The beaches are pretty and for us the hike to the summit and lighthouse were highlights. The underwater life - corrals etc is a bit disappointing, the coast is too exposed and there are too many visitors. We took a room that was generously described as a studio! No view, no balcony - pretty...

I read the trip advisor reviews too late and was very dubious about what we would encounter. We booked a studio room for 2 nights and it wss lovely. ..yes a little musty when we walked in but open the windows and...

We did a day trip to Fitzroy. Left Cairns at 8am returning at 5pm Staff on the boat were very helpful with giving info on what we could do in the island. There are transfer times during the day but I don't think a half day is enough for this island . We did glass bottom boat wet tour- after...

I stayed at Fitzroy as a little surprise to my girls in a student free day. Although our ocean view room was actually staring into the back of a cabin where I could see the people inside it rocking there very loud screaming child to sleep the rooms were fully equipped and clean. I do think some of the service...

The island is beautiful. The swimming/snorkelling is great. The Turtle rehab was interesting and I like Foxy's but the customer service is poor at the resort and at the dive place. I suspect that's due to the number of backpackers who have no real idea what they're doing and have no experience in customer service which is a shame because...
