The family liked the ambience of the hotel soon as soon as we walked in. It has a really good feeling about the property. Really good layout in the spa apartment. It is perfectly located. You get the fantastic view without the long walk up the hill. Close to everything.

The location was absolutely perfect being right in the heart of Airlie Beach. We stayed on the top floor and had a beautiful view of the ocean and Whitsunday Islands. The staff of Waters Edge were extremely helpful and recommended some great places to dine. Our room was clean and comfortable. If you’re planning a trip to airlie this is the place to stay!

Like so many of these resorts - it’s the cleanliness of the room that disappoints. Grout mould in bathroom - floors not properly cleaned. The towels were tired - old. The first member of staff we encountered at breakfast was very disinterested - looked half asleep and had wet hair. The location of the resort is great with Woolworths just across the road.
