Reviewed 28 June 2020 via mobile

Stayed with my partner here for 3 nights in June. This resort is fantastic and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The resort caters for families too with a games room and pool plus self contained rooms. Location is just 15 minutes from the ferry terminal and the bus to Picnic and Horseshoe Bay stops right outside the resort. Free WIFI is also available plus car hire

Date of stay: June 2020
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Overall a brilliant stay. Staff very accommodating and welcoming. Facilities excellent. Rooms large. Couldn't leave the air conditioning on when you left the room, so rooms were hot when you got back. VERY relaxing atmosphere at the resort.
Bus runs directly from the ferry terminal to the resort. Or it's a 15/20 minute walk. If it's hot and you have luggage, catch the bus. Very handy general store around the corner selling everything you'll need for your stay. Also the resort do snacks and drinks (including alcohol). The bbq chicken wrap washed down with a cold cider was fabulous.

We loved our time at Island Leisure Resort. A stand out for us was the quiet surrounds and the beautiful pool and gardens. It's clear to see that the owners and managers, Irene and Peter work very hard to keep everything so tidy and go out of their way to accommodate their guests. They were so friendly and helpful. The salt water pool is pristine. It's a very large area, with plenty of space, lounges, chairs and tables, umbrellas and a great BBQ area. The resort is 150 metres from Foodworks, which is 1 of 2 supermarkets on the Island. The bus stops outside the resort. The rooms are huge with everything you need for cooking and cleaning. We would love to go back. I couldn't be any more relaxed if I tried. Highly recommended.

The rooms are large. Very clean. Has a decent kitchenette and a large refrigerator. Flat-screen TV. The internet is very slow. The grounds are a bit old-style and outdated though theres nothing truly negative to say about it. It has a tennis court, a games room and a decent swimming pool.

The upside to this average review is that its quite cheap and thus very good value for money.

Its close to the Ferry - walking distance and also close to stores for food and pharmacy, etc. There's a few restaurants close by.

Hi Barry, I agree we are amazing value for money plus our WiFi is free, unlimited, reliable and available in all rooms. Although we don't have NBN on Magnetic Island, we do have one of the best WiFi ratings on the island. I also agree we are in a great location, just 50 metres from the beach and 100 metres from shops and restaurants. We are walking distance to the ferry plus the island bus stops at our door. Our rooms are very clean and all rooms have a kitchen plus our new Superior Bures also have a convection oven and a dishwasher. We are licensed, have a snack bar, games room, library, tennis court, large salt water pool and BBQ facilities. Barry thanks for staying with us and taking the time to submit a review.

Staying at this resort at the moment, staff can’t do enough for you.
Rooms basic, but they are really cheap anyway.
Quiet atmosphere. Rooms super clean. Easy access to bus, shops and restaurants. Very happy
