Green Island Resort4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Hotel is nice but not luxury. Restaurant was overpriced and below expectations. The island is overcrowded by day trippers. What you are paying for are the few magical hours after the last tour boat leaves when you have the island almost to yourself. Staying there for one night might be worth it if you were planning on visiting Green Island anyways, and if you bring your own picnic food.
We took our young kids (6 and 9) in mid-April. Every stage of the visit was handled very nicely by the staff starting with checking in at the warf, boarding the ferry, and being welcomed at the island. The kids really enjoyed the included activities including the tours, walks, kayaking, and snorkeling. If the kids were older and more experienced we would have taken a day trip to the outter reef for snorkeling or diving. The fish feeding and glass bottom boat were fun. The telescope viewing could be improved with a better scope, green laser pointer, and fewer white lights, but was still enjoyable especially for the younger kids. It was fun to see Orion upside down and the Big Dipper in a strange location. The rooms were very nice, spacious, and comfortable. The house cleaning staff did a great job keeping the place up. The breakfast buffet was very good and the dinners were very good as well. I'd say they were a better value than most restaurants in Cairns. The only downsides for us were: 1. Flakey internet. They are working on getting better service in the near future. 2. Cigarette smoke blowing in from the smoking area or the beach tends to ruin the rainforest/natural feel of the place. 3. Large, noisey groups of Chinese on day trips. Just avoid the daytripper areas and you'll more or less be OK.
