A room with a view

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 25, 2011

We stayed at Water's Edge Resort in February 2011 while touring Australia's East Coast. The resort it located up on a hill, a few minutes walk from Shute Harbour Rd which is the main road of Airlie Beach. We were there for 4 nights. The apartment was nicely furnished, the kitchen well equipped, the living room very spacious, the bedrooms smaller but still with enough space for moving around. We loved the view from the balcony. We arrived a little after 7.30 pm and the reception was already closed but we used the courtesy telephone in the reception area and we were given instructions on how to enter the room. Not many people seemed to be at the resort when we were there so we had no problems finding beds by the pool nor were the pools too crowded. All in all we had a nice stay. I do have one complaint though, related to the Internet connection. The resort offers connection to Internet through an external company called "Smartcard" (right! ...) We bought 2 cards of $30 value only to discover that they didn't actually work from our room which was on the 2nd floor. They only worked in the reception area and even then we would get disconnected after a few minutes. We went back to the reception to ask about this problem but the answer we got was a shrug. They couldn't buy back the cards because we'd already used them and they had no wish to call the Internet company to try and sort out things. We tried connecting by using the Smartcards for 2 days without much success but in the end we decided to consider the $60 as loss and bought time online from one of the wireless networks that we could get in our room called "Airlie_Beach_rooms" (I only wish we tried that first). Aside from the lack of interest in solving our Internet problem, we had no problems with the staff. They were not the friendliest but they were professional and helped us into booking some tours. Make sure to try the resort's restaurant, "Deja Vu", their food is amazing.

5 Star Accommodation with a view!!

Want a view to die for? Looking for a restaurant on site? How about a luxurious spa bath?... ...And what about an awsome infinity pool with stunning views? ....Then look no further than the Waters Edge with the famous Deja Vu Restaurant. You won't be dissapointed.

Plus the more you have in your party, the cheaper it will be per head. We had 6 people sharing the 3 bedroom appartment on the top floor and we just loved the place. I have put this down as expensive and it is if just 2 are staying, however I would keep a look out on the site below for specials as they come up a bit, especially in the off peak season and also check out sites such as lastminute.com.au. www.hotel.com.au or www.needitnow.com.au as they too have good specials.

The staff were very friendly and helpful too. Jeff pictured here was a real help an especially when I kept phoning back to change limo and transfer arrangements from the airport for our big vt group....he just kept smiling over the phone haha ;o)

Great place to stay

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

Had a great stay here, the apartments are great, spacious, clean, airy. 3 swimming pools, and a BBQ area in the complex

Unique Quality: Wonderful pool facilities and great views.

The restaurant is privately run and is not part of the management of the hotel, and is worth going to

This place has everything!

This was the accomodation chosen for the 2009 VT meeting held in September this year. Most of us stayed here for the 4 days and had a great time.
I had a double room which had everything I needed. A large lounge/dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, separate bathroom and bedroom and a big spacious patio complete with resident cockatoos who came down each morning for a chat!

Unique Quality: This place has everything you would need!....Great views, spacious and luxurious rooms, 3 horizon pools, a licenced poolside restaurant and bar and it is only a very short walk from the main street of Airlie.
There are lots of added extras like...a gymnasium, a large BBQ area, a high speed elevator and undercover parking.

Directions: Just one block back from the main street of Airlie.

Luxury I say

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 14, 2004

The setting is Balinese the staff are super helpful and the accomadation is nice and comfy. The rooms were spic and span. We stayed in a fourth level 1 bedroom apartment. The view was awesome and the setting was nice. Although it isnt on the watersedge - from any of the three pools the water seems to extends to the ocean. Night time and the view is just beautiful. The big plus is your just 100m from the main drag and handy to everything.

Unique Quality: The pools and views are beautiful the apartment is cool.

Directions: Heading south along the main street turn right at Ray White real estate then first on the left.
