Rooms were basic for the price, ants in the bed, cockroach in the room even though we was on the top floor. The 'nice' restaurant is very expensive and the only other option was mediocre at best. Didn't meet our expectations. Only plus was the staff were good.

A Lovely Stay
Had a lovely stay here over our 1st year Anniversary. Unfortunately was only 1 night and sadly the coral was bleached due the warmer water temperatures recently, however still had an excellent time and saw many beautiful fish. I would definitely recommend a visit to the turtle sanctuary, the AUD 8.- is completely worth it when you understand all they are trying to do to help this beautiful creature. The only low point for me was the extremely rude barman who served us at the pool and then again later at Foxy's bar. He had told us earlier that a certain cocktail was unavailable, we of course forgot the name as one does and tried to order it later only to be snapped at and told that as he had said 6 hours ago, this was not available as the ingredients were not in stock and that he would have come to the bar the first time we asked if there had been stock there. I might add that if stock was running low on a certain item, they could have had this ferry'd over with the many ferries that arrived during that day. In any case, regardless of that, I dont mind if there isnt something available but there is no need to be rude, especially not because guests dont remember which drink has no more ingredients. Anyhow, still had a lovely stay, clean rooms, nice beaches etc. On site store selection could be improved, but as we were there only 1 night it did not pose an issue. One of the highlights I have to mention, was the ferry ride over, one of the crew gave an absolutely hilarious safety demo.. have not laughed so much in a long time. Very nice chap. I would definitely stay again!

Lovely resort
I enjoyed my stay here as the island itself is so beautiful and it is as simple as that. The room had everything I needed and was clean. Food was good but more options would be better.

One of the best places during our trip
What a great stay at Fitzroy island! The resort is great, with a nice pool and snorkeling/kayak/sup rental possibilities. This is really a place to enjoy your holidays. I wish we could go back immediately!

A resort without digital lifestyle
Quiet and serene resort.
If you do not wish to be disturbed by any digital communication, this is the place to have a vacation.

Great way to experience the Great Barrier Reef
Location, activities available
Hospitality was a little underwhelming and there was a lack of food options and groceries in the general store. Would recommend it over green island though and apartment was modern and clean.

Just beautiful!
The room was exactly as the photos depicted on the website. The views were fantastic and the staff were thoughtful and made our stay very enjoyable.
We had a great time and would recommend it to families. We have four children aged 2-11yrs and there was something for everyone. Our room was the furthest away from the resort facilities so I would have preferred being closer and a playground would have been good to just chill in familiar surroundings for our two Ye old. I herwise it was fantastic.

Incredible location, average resort
Proximity to the reef, bushwalks, friendly staff
Overall we had a great time, despite the wind and rain. The island itself is a gem, and offers a range of free activities such as snorkelling, beaches and bushwalks. The staff, although mostly foreign travellers, were all friendly and accommodating and should be commended. The resort itself is modern and has a great range of amenities. However, we found ourselves wanting to get away from the busy-ness, especially around the reception area and wharf where the day trippers come and go each day. On an island so big, it seems odd that so much of its activity gets focused in such a small area. This made it very hard to feel like we were really 'getting away from it all'. Unfortunately the mould problems stated in many reviews are true. We happen to be allergic to mould so requested to be moved when we checked into rooms with a very strong mouldy smell. We were told the resort was fully booked and could be moved the next day, but this meant we got sick from the mould on Day 1. We were moved into much better rooms - the ocean view suite is fantastic. However, the 2 bedrooms ocean suite is actually a 1 bedroom suite room plus another single room which is dark and faces away from the ocean. This was extremely disappointing. Also, we were only serviced once during our 3 night stay in the new rooms and after the service it looked like they'd only done half the job. Nothing was fresh, the floors hadn't been cleaned and there were dirty dishes left in the sink. The food options are a mixed bag - the restaurant is really fantastic if you venture a la carte and the buffet is reasonable. The food at Foxy's was not really up to scratch though, especially for the price. And the general store has a few basic options. I would strongly recommend self-catering for breakfast, at least half your lunches and dinners, avoiding anything fried at Foxy's and splurging on the restaurant for a la carte dinner.
