Spent two nights here. Really nice apartment style, suit of a Balinese style, roomy, good facilities. Host was very friendly. Being in a quiet month we were able to book in early. Close to the harbour and closer to the food shop and bottle shop. Nice pool.

Spend 3 nights here with wife. Room was very nice and clean. Sorry, can't remember the name of the 2 staffs that greeted us when we arrive, but they were so helpful in providing information and suggestions about the island for us first timers there. Lots of facilities to use, but we only got to use the very clean bbq and the pool.

Extremely nice people work here, but the accommodation was very dated with a very soft bed and we were put right at the back of the property, the furthest away from everything, which seemed strange as for a few days we saw no other guests, it was dark on certain parts of the path back to our room and we were lucky it didn't rain as a lot of the roof gulley's pointed down to the small path. It was also the wrong time to visit Magnetic Island as a big percentage of the bossiness had closed down for February.

I am so sorry to hear you were not happy with your room. We have several types of accommodation and they are located in different areas of the resort. Our new superior rooms are closer to the front of the resort and had I known you were not happy with your room choice, I would have upgraded you to one of these rooms at no extra cost. What a shame you did not say anything whilst staying with us as I was not given the opportunity to assist you. I will check the path lighting, thank you for bringing it my attention. The roof gulley’s point directly into large drains that take all rainwater away from our paths in the wet season. Kind regards Eileen Nethercott – Manager – Island Leisure Resort

Stayed a few nights, lovely quiet place. Big room , great service, well located. Bottle shop nearby with some food and a bus stop out the front. Easy walk from the ferry terminal or bus available. Would stay again.

I wish I could score more than 10/10. Wow wow wow. Immaculately presented inside unit, gardens and throughout the property. Such peaceful, serene atmosphere. An absolute perfect little gem of a place. Reasonably priced also. The best I’ve stayed in yet on the island. I will return. Thankyou for the beautiful stay
