We recently stayed for a week at Green Island Resort, and we enjoyed great weather and absolutely beautiful food at the Emeralds restaurant. We found a great voucher through Luxury Escapes and it was fantastic value which included a full day out to the Great Barrier reef. This is a fantastic resort, other reviews talk about how the island becomes... More

First off this place is better than any of those paid reef boats, and by a mile! You can simply walk out of your room, walk down the beach and jump in the water to view an underwater safari. With the first 30 mins, I had spotted, turtles, stingrays, black tip reef sharks and plenty of colorful fish. Although food... More

Stayed for just one night and think it was well worth the money! Everything from snorkel hire to beach chair hire to bottom boat tours is free for guests of the resort. When 4.30 comes and all the day visitors leave there are complimentary drinks by the water before going to get dinner. We chose a picnic hamper so we... More

The rooms and facilities were clean and very comfortable. Food at the only restaurant on the island was consistently good although service was slow. Highly recommend room service. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I've been wondering how to review this resort since the first night. It is difficult to describe. This resort is described as an island paradise etc... and it really is. And yet, it somehow misses the mark, while being exactly what it is described as being. There is just no doubt that this is a beautiful experience. The island is... More

Having stayed on Fitzroy, Heron, Lady Elliot, Fraser, Moreton and Hamilton Island we were interested to compare Green Island. My family and I have just returned from a 7-night stay at Green Island and it is absolutely as beautiful as the others and we would have loved to stay longer! We will definitely return.

My partner and I stayed for a week with our baby boy. The resort was lovely, and we had a great week away.

We had a pleasant time on Green Island but reviews are right to correct any misconceptions one could get from the resort website. This is not a secluded, quiet, high end island resort. It is a popular day tripper destination overrun during the day with tourists flocking to its small beach and fast food stalls. At night you can imagine... More
