Originally we stayed on the island for 1 week in a motel on the esplanade and when we wanted to extend our stay we couldn't because the unit was booked. We looked at alternative accommodation and found Amaroo on Mandalay. We had a beautiful unit on the North side with a bush border. The only thing I found slightly disturbing...

We had a great time at Amaroo. The lovely man looking after the place in the manager's absence gave us great tips about how to make the most of seeing the wildlife on the property which was one of our highlights on Magnetic Island. The room eas comfy and clean and we could feed the birds every morning and afternoon...

Me and the girlfriend had no plans for the long weekend but i soon realized everyone else did. People had gone all over leaving us in Townsville feeling a little bored, we had just come back from Thailand that week so we wasn't too fussed, so as a last minute decision we decided to pop over to Maggie Island as...

My husband and I stayed at this lovely motel for one night. The owners are very gracious and gave us our pick of room. We ended up staying in a newly renovated unit with fresh paint, tile, new air/con, kitchen, lighting and bed which was extremely comfortable. There was also a massive TV. We had a large fridge and as...

Granted this place got hammered by Yazi a few years back and is slowly rebuilding. Pool area is lovely with a smaller 20cm pool for kids to splash around in with shade. Sadly the restaurant and bar are not operational and so you will have to venture out for food and a drink. Rooms are basic but clean and have...

Selrae, General Manager at Amaroo On Mandalay, responded to this review

Hi Paul Thanks for the review.You are right, Yasi was a big factor here are cause a lot of damage. As the resort units are individually owned and we are not run by a big corporation with a bottomless pit of money, the road back has been a long one. But thankfully the last stage, the restaurant building, is about...

I don't usually put up reviews but this place had me and my partner very impressed. After waiting at the ferry terminal for half an hour for the very unreliable taxi service I rang the hotel and Brian offered to pick us up, drop us to our executive suite as it was a little far walk to with luggage in...

We stayed at the Executive apartment which was nice and spacious. The resort pool is large and newly renovated. The manager was very helpful and offered to pick us up from the Ferry. Magnetic Island itself is a tropical island and is great if you like beaches and bush walking. It also has a fairly accessible nude beach called Balding...

This is great accommodation and do affordable! I have a really strict budget but have fairly high standards. This place is a slam dunk! I have already recommended my parents stay here when they come to Maggie. We stayed in the executive room. Its a good size well laid out and is very well maintained if a little bit old....

Amaroo on Mandalay is conveniently located in Nelly Bay, 2 bus stops from the Wharf ($1.40 pp), you could walk but with luggage the bus was an easy option. There is near by restaurants/cafes, shops, bike hire and a bait shop. Could easily walk to the IGA and car rental place. We arrived late and were greeted by Brian, he...
