Awesome unit with peaceful views and spacious room. Fully furnished. ”
I ended up in unit 194. Wow. Close to amazing magnesium pool. Good at restaurant and bar was affordable and delicious. Steak was 10/10. NZ Tui beer very addictive. Bed was a queen bambillo bed. Like floating on air. Comfy chaise lounge. Fully stocked shower dispenser was a fabulous touch. Everything I needed. Aircon in bedroom and lounge with fan optional just superb. Definitely coming back. Perfect for solo traveler or family of three or two couple or three single. Staff were super helpful. You just have to ask and the help is there. A short walk down mandalay to shops and sites. Fishin and fuellin store just 100m away had everything I needed. Affordable stay. Far better than the noisy backpacker place at xbase and far cheap and quieter than peppers although I am a regular peppers booker. Thanks Amaroo. See you soon. Have passed on info re the unit I stayed in to other friends and travelers already. Hope they enjoy it as much as I did ... and will no doubt.
What a great place!”
I really enjoyed my short stay at Amaroo and will definitely come back. When I arrived at the ferry terminal I didn't know how convenient and easy it is to use the bus and assumed I'd just take a taxi. Well, since there are only two taxi's on the island and you need to call them, I was looking at quite a wait. I called the Amaroo and they dropped everything to come pick me up. Service way beyond! Many thanks! The grounds are really nice and waking up to extreme bird song was a dream. There are a bunch of wallabies that wander about and you'll see them when walking back to your room at night or if you're an early riser. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and very quiet. Couldn't ask for more!
A Weekend atn Amaroo”
We arrived at around 4pm on Friday and checked in with no hassles. The buildings are worn but are clean and the gardens are magnificent. The unit was very comfortable with facilities working. The bar area and pool area are quite expansive and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful and make for a very pleasant stay. Then location of the resort is a bit remote and a vehicle is a decided advantage. At the end of the street is a small group of shops with the ferry terminals (both vehicular and passenger) a short distance away. The restaurant is quite basic and the meals are good and reasonably priced. All in all a good value for money resort.
Comfortable stay for young family”
Room was clean & comfortable. Outdoor pool & surrounds were lovely. The grounds were very well maintained which included the playground, tennis court & BBQ area. Bus stop right outside which look you around island. Kids loved fish tank & Olaf the resident puppy. No restaurant. Resort as a whole was dated but well kept.
Staff super friendly & helpful, room dated but spotless. Could not get twin bed configuration & rollout was uncomfortable (for average size adult). Pool was great & NQ wildlife abundant in gardens. Bus at door but comfortable flat amble to ferry with minimal bagage.
Hospitality above and beyond thank you we will definitely return 👍”
Loved the Koalas 🐨 and bird life walking on the ground, like a nature reserve., loved it.
Great value for money. ”
Easy 10-15 min walk to amenities like cafe, marina, grocery store, post office, bait and tackle shop etc. Bus stop outside. Older resort but still an enjoyable stay and much cheaper than we expected for a family of four. We didn't spend anything extra as we brought our own groceries with us but next time we will use the free order and delivery service from the local grocer. We stayed 1 night but plan to return in future for a longer stay with friends/family.
Pleasant alternative to beachside accommodation”
Very pleasant - buses stop right outside resort was most convenient and helpful assistance of staff in use of courtesy car on occasion was most appreciated. Loved the swimming pool and the bird-feeding/bird-life which was quite special.
A great place for a family getaway. Beautiful spot, really makes you feel like you are remote without being too far away from amenity. Great tropical surroundings. Had a great time in the pool, good food from the onsite restaurant. Staff are especially friendly and happy to take the time to give you guidance and information. Great value overall and will be returning.
Great value for money”

I thought it very dated , basic ”
Seventies decor and little has been done to it since , budget accommodation and it wasn't cheap .Shower leaked, had to tighten the screws to stop it falling down , hot just , not good water pressure , Industrial soap dispensers,, staff were friendly but I wouldn't go back .
We had a great stay and the staff were amazing
Great friendly service would stay there again.
Very nice for quiet holiday a little bit old world charm but very neat and tidy”
A bit far from town but you can walk very easy. But very relaxing location
Pretty basic place to stay , nothing fancy, but the most comfortable bed ever. Lovely to see wildlife everywhere, pool nice, place needs some loving overall, quite run down. Only down fall was the food at the restaurant- would stay again but would not eat there.
Nice enough but like i said, those uphill walks no good.”
Need car parks near rooms, not good for older people.
Relaxed and Easy”
Enjoyed very much - Real relaxed stay
Had a great time, room clean and well presented. Staff at the restaurant were also great.
