Great Barrier Reef Hotels

Fitzroy Island Resort


  • Lots of on-island activities and facilities
  • Lively bar with regular live entertainment
  • Easy access to and from Cairns and Great Barrier Reef dive sites


  • Day-trippers swarm the island, competing for space and facilities
  • Resort studio rooms lack outlook, and can be stuffy and musty
  • On-island shop and eateries are pricey (BYO supplies from Cairns)

Fodor's Review

Budget-conscious couples and backpackers are the main guests in the viewless studio garden rooms, while older, more well-heeled travelers and families tend to stay in the pricier one- and two-bedroom ocean-view suites, beach cabins, and four-bedroom penthouse units on this reef-fringed tropical island. Air-conditioned rooms have a Balinese feel, with tropical ceiling fans, but have modern bathrooms, luxury appointments and LCD TVs. Pricier accommodations have balconies from which to admire the ocean or garden, and, in all but beach cabins and studios, full kitchen and laundry facilities. There's a beach-front pool as well as a guests-only resort pool, a noisy games and kids' play area, a cinema screening three movies daily, and a day spa.
