We had 4 lovely nights here and enjoyed everything about it. Check in and reception so easy. The rooms are huge with everything you need. Laundry facilities and plenty of clothesline’s to hang out washing. Huge library with great assortment of books to read. The pool was lovely swum everyday, heaps of sun beds, chairs tables outdoor bbq if you want. Shade cover around the area as well, so relaxing out there. Would definitely go back and the Sunbus stops at the door. Easy walk to Nelly Bay ferry too for IGA or Foodworks about 200 metres away.

Nice spot close to beach

Nice and clean but limited space for hanging clothes. Toilet and bathroom seperated by partition wall open at the top. Dont stay there unless you like the sound of people going to the toilet right in your room cos thats what it sounds like.

Exceeded Expectations

Pros: Updated, extremely clean and fresh. Very quiet and relaxing. Self contained but with fabulous eating options within walking distance.
Location: Central location, close to the ferry. The bus service is excellent if you don't hire a car. Piece of paradise - that's Magnetic Island!
This resort is very well maintained. The room and facilities are spotless. A full sized fridge is a bonus when staying for a few nights. The process for booking through Wotif was streamlined and value for money. I would highly recommend staying here for a relaxing get-away. The gardens provide a very lush tropical vibe. So many fabulous things to do on this beautiful island. Great coffee and carrot cake at Scallywags and delicious meals at Man Fridays which are both a short walk.

Nice and clean resort

The stay was great with friendly staff and everywhere was very clean and well maintained. The rooms are well equipped with everything you need. Lovely pool and spa. The only down side was the bed was too soft. Close to the beach and not far from the Ferry. Staff offered to look after our bags on check-out and use the pool which was nice.

Basic but adequate and very clean accommodation.

Pros: Clean, tidy, friendly staff.
Cons: Nothing really!
Location: Very pretty island .... Lovely Bays . If dressed adequately ( against stingers) you can swim, snorkel or dive .... horse ride along the beach.
The set-up here at Island Leisure Resort is very clean and beautifully maintained. The owners and staff were very helpful and friendly. The buses to the various beaches on the island ran regularly and were always on time. The food-stores are not cheap but there are only two on the island , so not really any competition. The bays are beautiful, but we could only swim in two of them ( because of the season) that were netted against jelly fish. Personally, I think we chose the wrong time of year to come to Magnetic Island (February) as it was so hot and humid and I didn't cope at all well with that ! But then it is the quieter time on the island so if you can stand the extra high temperatures you have a lot more of it to yourself !
