Peninsula Airlie Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 January 2012

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic 10 days over the Christmas & New Year period 2011/2012 at the spectacular Peninsula Airlie Beach, a truly 5 star complex with stunning 'as new' waterfront apartments with amazing views of the islands and marina. The picturesque marina has direct and easy access to the beautiful Whitsunday Islands and is literally on the door step.
We were helped on numerous occasions by the resident managers John and Sandy who were always happy to go the extra mile and to advise and arrange trips which we booked at reception, and had a great experience on all,
As regular visitors to Airlie Beach, Peninsula with its security and well kept tropical gardens gives the tranquility to match the best (and biggest) apartments we have stayed in at Airlie Beach, The outlook over the marina and islands doesn't get any better than this and the relaxed feel of the whole place is evident from day one.
We will be back!!

After spending 6 nights on a Bareboat charter, this was the perfect end to a great break. Our apartment was brand new and had everything we needed (including a balcony that looked straight over the marina). Highly Recomended.

Room Tip: Try for a room that overlooks the marina ( though they all might).

The Peninsula Apartments have a wonderful view of the marina. We booked a penthouse apartment and we were disappointed to find water stains all over the main bedroom and walk in robe carpet. The kichen was not cleaned very well, with the last guests chocolate bar still remaining in the fridge when we checked in. The dishwasher had such a terrible smell when you opened it. The whole apartment just lacked attention to detail. We certainly left the kitchen much cleaner than we found it. No daily servicing either, you have to stay 8 nights to have a service mid way. Even your average four star motel will change the sheets after 3 or 4 nights regardless of how long you stay.
If you happen to get a ground floor "penthouse" apartment - take some ear plugs because when you go to bed all you can hear is the people in the apartment above you dragging their dining chairs across the floor. Very small pool area also. Very average stay.

Dear Rubbery

Thank you for your recent review, I'm dissapointed you didn't enjoy your stay with us here at Peninsula and would like to respond to a few of your concerns. Firstly all of apartments are fitted out with a wool blend 48 ounce carpet which if all the carpet fibres are brushed in the one direction the colour and carpet looks great, however the carpet fibres move when walked on and have a mind of their own which way they lay causing the carpet in some instanses to look as if it has a water stain, depending on the light and where and what direction you are looking from. None of our apartments have water stained carpet, all apartments have the same possible look of water damage. This is the characteristics of this wool carpet,brushing the fibres in the same direction rectifies this but impossible to keep up.

The team here at Peninsula pride ourselves on presenting our apartments to a five star level and are inspected prior to each guest checking in. If as you state in your review the apartment wasn't up to your standard we would have gladly rectified any situation by having housekeeping attend immediately, had the issue been reported to any of our staff.

Regarding a daily service, Peninsula is a self catering complex and all apartments have a washing machine and dryer for guest useage during there stay. We offer a few different service options from a daily change of towels only to daily full clean, for an extra cost, this didn't apply with the rate you paid or requested by you at any time prior or during your stay. If you had notified any of our staff that this was a requirement we would have gladly organised this.

Regards
Peninsula Management

Never having been to Airlie before we were unsure where to position ourselves. This is a great choice as its overlooking the marina. Once you get to Airlie you will see what I mean when I say it really is hard to pick the best spot. Airlie is so spread out - you could be at the other end of the town and have to walk into town, the same as us at the opposite end of the town. Aviod town centre unless you want to hang with the backpackers crowd.
This is the spot for the most beautiful part of Airlie. We rented a 1 bedroom penthouse, which was a 2 story layout. Well appointed and your balcony is right on the water.
Everything about this place was great - only one tiny tiny complaint - 3 lights in our top floor bedroom - ensuite didnt work so lighting wasnt great - but that is finding a fault for the sake of it really and the Tv is smallish.
Oh.... sorry one more - not a complaint just a statement. The pool is tooooooo small. 2-3 couples and it is crowded.
Apartment is well appointed otherwise - so wanna try something and try luxury by the water give these guys ago and they can organise your cruizes and transport needs etc.
