Staff very good. Facilities adequate, but would have liked the store to sell more fresh fruit. More shelter for when waiting for the boat when it’s raining and checkout at 11am especially if leaving on the 12.15 boat.

Liked the relaxing atmosphere. Very very rude female staff member on reception in the afternoon of July 1st - probably just a reflection of the number of people coming through but the young woman who checked me in was remarkably rude and passive aggressive, almost to the point where I thought a complaint was in order. The service at the restaurant was very good and I have no other complaints. I do not think I will return due the rude behaviour of the woman on the service desk however.

Loved our stay, the studio room was fabulous, the island stunning, staff friendly and helpful. Cocktails and eats at foxys while the sunset were memorable moments. Paradise.

The island was really beautiful and we had great time there. The staffs are general very friendly and helpful. but there are few things that will improve the better stay over there: 1. internet access which only in lobby or jetty area. There is not even phone connection in the room as our booking has lots of problems that we really need to contact the website. that was really hard work to get it done. 2. food - there are lots of Asian travel to the island, but they only provide very limited options for food. There are all kind of food available in Cairns. shouldn't be too hard to bring in some Asian food in or other options to make meal time much easier. 3. the general store is the only place available for all the guests to get some stuff, but it is close at 4pm and even meat pies are running out in 30 seconds. Will be better to open longer hours and provide a bit more hot snacks and goods.
