Very nice island, enjoyed it very much!
We went to the Blues Festival on Fitzroy great night and as always great accommodation and staff see you again soon
Fitzroy Island What a beautiful place, a little light on the "sandy beach", but its a fringed coral reef. Sensational Accommodation, strange sounding wildlife makes waking up very peculiar! Great food, we had half board for three nights, and were not left hungry! 8/10 - almost the perfect island experience. (only to be topped by total seclusion and sandy beaches)
Absolutely. Service was great, I thought the place could use a bit of a touch-up but otherwise it was very nice.
The accommodation & food was first class, the hard coral beaches were very disappointing, we couldn't walk very far as the rangers had all the tracks blocked off as they were burning off & we couldn't sit out on our balcony to relax because of the smoke.Not a very good stay for us & we will not be going back to Fitzroy Island.The reef trip which was offered in the package was also extremely disappointing, we expected to be able to get off the boat & walk around on an island, instead we were stuck on a pontoon lining up to get on a glass bottom boat & then sitting on the boat for the rest of the day,not very good as 80% of the people on the boat were sick on the way out to the reef & it was not even rough also the food on the boat was nothing to write home about, all in all a crap day.
Fantastic natural setting... lovely staff.
Yes,We love it,.....love to come again one day,....

Dear Gregory, Thank you for your comments we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Fitzroy Island, we look forward to assisting you again on your next visit. Best regards, Cairns Holiday Specialists
Fitzroy Island is a tropical paradise perfect for a wedding, honeymoon or lovers getaway. Resort is gorgeous but for kids there's not alot and there is very limited phone range and no internet. Definately a couples retreat.
Yes, we did enjoy Fitzroy Island Resort. It is quiet and beautiful, but if the weather is not good, you kind of hang in there until the boat picks you up. The music in the lunch cafe [the only place you can eat something during the day] is awful and sends you packing. Which is a pity, because it has awesome views and the food is not bad.
I really enjoyed the stay here. Fitzroy Island is lovely. Staff were lovely but maybe could be a little bit knowledge in tours - so do all that before. We went on the island boat(Eye Spy) for a day snorkeling - Eye-Spy - that was fantastic. Foods choices can be limited so bring your fresh fruit and vegies with you if you like to have lots of that during the day.(you otherwise eat at the restaurant or the bar). The store has very limited offerings - mostly snacks like chip, lollies). IF you have very specific dietary requirements - you should probably arrange something - or inform the restaurant are they are very keen to assist. I would also make sure that I arrange they transfers to/from the island before. We did and had no problems - some others had to wait all day to get off the island as the ferry was fully booked most of the time.
Yes, we enjoyed our stay at Fitzroy Island. A couple of small points however - it would have been good if the resort had a second option for meals, particularly something simpler than that offered in the dining room. Perhaps even offering self-catering options (eg, a shared kitchen). Also, it would have been helpful if the Resort could assist with carrying bags to and from the ferry. Wheeling or carrying bags across gravel is not easy, particularly for the elderly or those with children.
yes we loved every minute of the warm weather and peace
Love Fitzroy Island its great fun with a group of friends !!!
It was a taste of heaven. Fantastic location, super resort, and terrific staff. An experience of a lifetime.

Dear Trish, Thanks for your comments we are glad you enjoyed your stay at beautiful Fitzroy Island, we look forward to assisting you again in the future. Best regards the Team at Cairns Holiday Specialists
Fitzroy was very nice. The facilities are very nice, although our room had a view of a wall. The rooms were spacious, and comfortable. They are still working out the kinks, but overall we enjoyed it. Some of the staff seemed to be in the wrong place...the check-in person told us the room would not be ready until 2...which would not be unexpected, if they were fully booked (they weren't). The ferry gets you there at 11, and that leaves you hanging. The person made no suggestions of what we should do, in the meantime. Fortunately, a supervisor (very efficient woman), intervened, and we were shown to a room.
The food was surprisingly good, and by Australian standards, reasonably priced. We had excellent service one night, ok service another, and inhospitable service on another. They seemed to rotate the workers in various jobs. Good training, but some of these people should not interface in service positions.
More options for transport to and from island will be good. Also, only one vendor for reef trips...The guys in the dive shop were great.
The whole family had a wonderful time. Lovely location, good food at the restaurant, great service & plenty to do. A great family holiday!
Fitzroy island was lovely even though it rained for alot of the time we were there.The resort staff were friendly and helpful,the rooms were gorgeous and very clean.Our 4 children spent alot of the time on the pool trampoline,snorkeling and canoeing thus making it a relaxing break for my husband and I.
