Review:   The staff here are phenomenal, great customer service with lots of nice touches to make your stay special. Breakfast is excellent. Would be nice to have more variety on dinner menus but the food was very good all the same. Lots of wild life to be seen all over the island - turtles and fish and even a few small sharks. Very cool to see. Be prepared: island is flooded with day-trippers from 9:00 - 4:00 daily, though there are many places to get away to.

Review:   2016: Gorgeous location, high quality hotel with lovely staff. 2017: Packages are great with breakfast, outer reef tour and glass-bottomed boat ride all included. Daily inclusions of fish feeding and sunset drinks take this resort to a higher level. Beach loungers and water activities are also included for house guests. The rooms are fresh and clean with quality toilettries and linen. Food is of an excellent standard, although the restaurant is a little pricey for extended stays. Room service is a good option, as is the picnic hamper. While kids are catered for, it is not a family holiday resort. Staff are exceptional: Joe, Cory, Kyla, Claudia in the restaurant; Travis and Nick in the glass-bottomed boats and friendly housekeeping and amenities staff make for a memorable stay. As a national Park, there is an enormous amount of plant, bird and marine life to explore. The surrounding coral reef is glorious and home to a huge variety of fish. The main attraction is always the turtles. Majestic and breath-taking. You see plenty from the jetty but it is amazing to share the water with them. Day trippers to the island make the main areas busy between 10am and 4pm, but then the island belongs to a maximum of 100 guests.

Review:   Green Island is only good if you staying there so that you could explore more activities, we only had stop over to reef but the beach we did practice Snookle with kids which was great. Missed opportunity to do Paragliding sort of thing no one explained that we need to book in advance for this. Resort staff was friendly. If you are planning to visit during holidays be prepared as its going to be over crowded.

Review:   Spent 3 nights and had a great time. Arrived in the afternoon and spent the time snorkelling just off the beach. Lots of marine life but the corals are a bit dull. It gets pretty busy during the day due to day trippers but after 4 most of them have left and the island is amazingly quite. They provide full stinger suits as it was jelly fish season. We only saw moon jelly fish which was harmless but better safe then sorry. As a guest of the hotel you get to use the umbrellas and chairs for free. We spent most of the day on the beach with the kids. Wet didn't do kayaking or wind surfing even though it was included. The kids loved the fish feeding and the night walks. We also took the outer Reef tour which was amazing. The outer Reef is much nicer in terms of sea life and corals. It was worth the money. Make sure you take travel sickness pills. Overall the experience was great. The island is small so you can easily walk around it in about 30 minutes.
