          Tropical island holiday”

          Had a blast with the stay. Tour guides were fun and knowledgeable, how considerate and helpful the staff were just fabulous. Jumped in and out of beach and pool, go around in swim suit around the island. Felt sorry about getting the room sandy but delight they still get so clean with every guest being like that! Didn’t get to kayak/windsurf so I was very disappointed - the wind was just too strong. Saw heaps of marine life and sea turtles and did so much snorkeling day and night. Enjoyed the island all to ourselves after 4:30 which was sooo peaceful. So many good things I want to say and definitely don’t mind staying again (only if it’s cheaper).

          Neither dinner nor breakfast at Emerald were good experiences. Extremely delayed for dinner, some waiters not attentive to the pace of service at tables. Breakfast scrambled eggs had a disgusting look, totally solid not good flavor, coffee dispenser needed service. Excellent arrival experience.

          Our bags were taken care of right from boarding the ferry to our room, really great! Really nice accomodation with friendly staff. Beautiful walks & activities. Nice when the last boat has left at 4:30pm & you have the island to yourself as many visitors do a day trip. Emerald restaurant was expensive & we had to wait an hour for our meal so missed out on our planned evening activities. Overall a great experience for us, recommended is the glass bottom boat, Jetty fish feeding, Night walk.

          Top place to stay, 2 or 3 nights a must”

          This is a great resort, a short 45 minute ferry ride from cairns we stayed 3 nights.Being a resort guest gives you inclusions over day trippers which they need to pay for -towels -beach chair and umbrella -snorkel equipment -wetsuit or lycra suit -glass bottom boat -kayak hire -windsurfing with lesson Additionally, when there are only guests on the island (prior to 9.30am and after 4.30pm) they include- -breakfast -sunset drinks every evening -fish feeding -jetty walk with torches spotlighting for turtles and other sea life -island walk looking at tree life, birds, bats and ghost crabs These all all worth getting involved. Expect to spend at least $100 on dinner for a couple per night. There is only one restaurant open to eat in the evening, if you are a fussy eater or gluten free it’s best to discuss with staff prior. The food here is great! Definitely do the $85 beach picnic - great value Dining on the beach also available and go on the outer reef tour

          Amazing trip”

          Green island resort was the highlight of my trip. It looks expensive by book, but so many services on the island is included in the price. if you book a day trip alone, the trip could cost nearly 100 AUD per person. There is so much to do on this island, the beach itself is pristine. During the day, there were boat load of tourists coming, but as soon as the last ferry left, the island is left to the hotel guests. You keep the entire island to yourself.. walking on the beach just by yourself on the amazing sunset is a rare experience. Night safari is also fun! The foods are great on the Emerald restaurant. We ordered some sea food, the tiger prawn tempura is incredible. some of the biggest prawn I ever seen. But the mains were disappointing as the fish comes with fruity salty sauce, It hide the taste of the fish. The chef obviously made effort,.I wish it were simply pan fried. Rachel(food) and Silvia(reception) delivered amazing service to us. 4.5/5 to my experience

          Missing the mark on providing a wonderful experience. ”

          The rating could be a perfect 5 if it weren't for accomondating the day trippers as a priority over those whom are overnight guests. The facilities primarily there for day trippers reduces the experience of an Eco-luxury resort. The swarm of day trippers is overwhelming and frustrating and often felt like competition for food, beverages, etc. The staff was great, rooms are comfortable, the island beautiful, and location superb. You can deliver an amazing experience if you can figure out a better way to balance day trippers and overnight guests. The best would be eliminating them or greatly reducing the number of them.

          Paradise island,that few too many have discovered”

          Amazing snorkeling right off the beach, with turtles! After 5pm it's your own private island. Great set of activities for guests.

          From the boat trip into the island, to the moment we left - Green Island was a truly memorable experience. The room was clean and simple, but large and comfortable. After deciding to stay on Green Island, you won't want to spend much time in your room anyway. The real beauty of the place is what's outside the room. The island can be walked around in around 20 minutes and I really recommend doing so. At one point, me and my girlfriend were on our own on a beach with beautiful views of the sea and a clear blue sky, with a helicopter taking off that was something like a scene out of a movie. The water around the island is beautiful. Crystal clear and we often saw turtles swimming around. Tip - take an underwater camera!!! The only downsides are that it does get busy during the day, especially the public areas because of the day trippers. But the island is big enough that there is always somewhere to get away from it all if that is what you want. The second issue was that we initially booked a night here and a few weeks later the price had almost halved. Not impressed as you can imagine! Overall, I recommend the island to anyone who wants to experience being out in the middle of nowhere but still having lots of different things to do (the night walk was great!)

          Large, luxerious rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, idylic location

          The hotel offers spacy accomodation of well furnished rooms: we felt right at home from the moment we walked in. The bathroom offers a large bath, separate shower and separate toilet. Great choice of breakfast and delicious diner menu. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They are very attentive and personally engaging. They make an effort to make you feel welcome and special. But the true beauty of the hotel is its location. Green island may be a tourist attraction by day, as soon as the last ship of the day departs the island regains its natural tranquility. Watching turtles swim about while drinking champagne at the beach with just a few other guests is quite an experience. Could have stayed there for weeks.

          The beach

          I stayed here for 2 nights. The Green Island is a small island - to circle the island by walk will take just 1~2 hours. We saw sea turtle and ray fish from the beach. The food is great too - dinner time is very quiet, as all non-resident tourists are gone. The hotel also provides snorkeling gear and my wife and I had fun on the seashore. Suggest staying for 2 nights - no more as it will be boring, and no less as you can have time to walk along the beach and circle the island.

          We arrived here on a rainy day, was quite disappointed initially as this was a lovely island with a lot of water activities (snorkeling, water skiing, etc). However, upon arrival we was nicely greeted by the hotel staff at the pier and they managed our check in process pretty well. Meals were great (a bit expensive) and they also offer complimentary drinks just before dinner time. A nice time to chat with friends and other guests staying in the hotel.
