"Although most people visit Airlie Beach as a gateway to the Whitsunday Islands, staying at Magnums is a highlight in itself. The backpackers consists of numerous wooden units spread within a huge tropical garden, not noticeable from the outside. Each unit consists of 12 outside-facing wood-constructed rooms, grouped in 3's with their own sharing shower, washbasin and toilet. A few communal kitchens are available, as well as laundry facilities."

"This was my second stay at 'Nomads' & I have had a great time on both occasions with the Shuttle bus service & storage area this place is Awesome! Sailing out of Airlie Beach I just needed some where cheap to rest, shower & recoup this place answers the lot for me! Thou being a Backpackers stay I was obviously the oldest customer there, I have always been treated equally & with respect, I would recommend this cheap basic accommodation for any persons over 35yrs or older, I would not recommend it to families with small children You couldn't get more central to the heart of Town, Transport, Restaurants, Swimming or Beach area's of Airlie, I will be back!"

The room was great, clean and comfortable. Will be going back to the same hotel on my next time in the Whitsundays. "

"Hotel is very near the sea, beach, supermarket. Go to main street by walk 20 minutes, by bus 5 minutes. Bus is 3AUD. Every morning 5:30am & 2:30pm in the afternoon, many colorful parrots will come to the receiption desk of hotel. Becuase Judi, hotel's hostess feed them, she likes birds very much and there are 2 very cute dogs in the hotel. This hotel built under the mountain, there are a lot of trees around the room of hotel, i felt that you lived in the rainforest. Last day, when i check out, i saw a big wild kangaroo in the hotel. Hotel's enviroment is really very good. "

"from the moment we checked into the hotel we were all made to feel very welcome. we were able to check in early after getting off an overnight coach journey from bundaberg and were most grateful! the hotel is great holiday accommodation. we had a 1 bed apartment for myself, my boyfriend and his mum. all the linen was provided for the sofa bed in the living area and was to a good standard. there was lots of storage space for all our bags. the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. the managers behind the front desk were able to book our tours for us without any trouble. they advised us on the best tours for what we wanted to do and were not at all pushy. the resort was just a short 5minute walk into the town, where there are lots of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. there was a nice outdoor pool, but we didn't use it as the weather was not so great during our stay. i would definately recommend a stay at the whitsunday vista resort, it was perfect for our needs!

The hotel has been recently opened and in a refurbished building of the town center. Rooms are not spacious however they are modern and clean. The staff was friendly and welcoming. We will return again to the Heart Hotel and Gallery Whitsundays."

"We visited Whitsundays for the first time. It was my wife's birthday and we chose Airlie beach for her birthday getaway. We went through many properties while selecting one for our stay and we chose Mirage Whitsundays. We weren't sure how it's going to be but the minute we stepped into the property, we looked into each other's eyes and we had that smile on our face (mission successful). We were extremely satisfied with our decision of locking down Mirage for our stay. This property is just awesome. We went for one bedroom apartment but to our shock that one bedroom apartment was so big that we just couldn't believe our eyes. We were given horizon apartments and we had amazing view. The apartment was huge and so beautifully decorated that wer just loved our stay. Furniture looked brand new and was of good quality. It was worth every penny. Totally recommend Mirage Whitsundays. Infact it was one of the best place amongst others nearby. "

"We really wanted to support this resort after the Cyclone Debbie damage so came back because our first trip here was so great. The pros and cons are: the staff are almost all terrific -thx specially to Michael who helped us after a Jetstar-related loss of a night; there are quite a few things that have still not reopened yet though and given this it was disappointing that charges are being levied on the water sports (paddle boards, kayaks, catamarans at $30-$50 for half an hour ) given that there isn’t much else to do on the island right now. There are also the beginnings of some sustainability initiatives , though plenty of low-hanging fruit remain such as single use plastic toiletries .A great though curiously not advertised option is to go on a JetSki tour around the Whitsundays with Sonia from GSL -definitely a highlight - as was catching some great whale watching from Lovers Cove - free!!!"
