View from Sea View Room balcony. Coral Sea Resort, Airlie Beach.

Coral Sea Resort is situated on Paradise Point with fantastic views over the Coral Sea. With my wife and daughter, we booked a 3 night stay and received a bonus night free, making our stay 4 memorable nights all up.

As soon as you drive your vehicle into the undercover car park, you are presented with the most fabulous views across the Coral Sea, and you realized that something special awaits inside the hotel. If these are the views from the car park, what will it be like from the rooms?

Booking in was totally hassle free, with everything waiting for us. Perhaps the total check in procedure took 5 minutes and the young man at the desk was the most pleasant and helpful person we have dealt with in any hotel across Australia.

We booked a Sea View Room which overlooks the resort swimming pool. The rooms are by no means luxury, but they are certainly adequate, roomy and clean. Our room contained 2 queen size beds, which were very comfortable, lots of closet space, plus all the usual hotel fixtures and fittings. The room was air-conditioned, thankfully, as the tropical heat was quite stifling for January. The view from the room and private balcony was stunning.

Bathroom and fitting image. The bathroom was good sized and meticulously clean. Something that was amazing is that you can open a small louvre door in the bathroom while having a shower and enjoy the view. The outside windows in the room and bathroom have been mirrored so you have complete privacy while still being able to see out.

Dining in the restaurant is a treat, with delicious meals and attentive staff. Airlie Beach is a very casual place and the staff at the Coral Sea Resort go about their work in a relaxed yet efficient manner, which makes it great for all guests.

No need to get dressed for dinner, shirt and shorts are as fitting as is more formal attire, but when you are dining next to the pool with the most fabulous views, anyone who can't relax needs to see their doctor quick. Or perhaps a few stiff drinks will help them unwind.

Breakfast is satisfying, lunch can be anything from burger and chips to something more substantial and dinner is pure indulgence. Meal prices are very reasonable for al-a-carte dining.

The Coral Sea Resort has an on site tour booking and gift shop. We booked ahead for the 2 Island Cruise with Fantasea Cruises but the weather turned sour and we had no trouble canceling on the day and rebooking for later in the week. We were picked up at the door by the shuttle bus and dropped off again after the cruise. Fantastic organization by all and out thanks to shop staff for rearranging everything so efficiently.

Inside Sea View Room, Coral Sea Resort. The location of the Coral Sea Resort is just about perfect. Easy to drive to and right on the Bicentennial Boardwalk, making the main street and swimming lagoon at Airlie Beach just a short walk and Abel Point Marina no more that 5 minutes from the hotel door.

One of the first impressions visitors to Airlie Beach have are the outstanding sea views as you drive along Shute Harbour Road. At the Coral Sea Resort, those views are with you every minute and add an island flavor to your whole stay.

You can book standard rooms, rooms with ocean views or luxury Coral Sea Suites, which are magnificently furnished and have outdoor spa, double hammock and panoramic views. There is an on-site bar and restaurant, gymnasium, gift shop, massage service, large pool and a great garden with chairs and umbrellas so you can sip a cool drink and just totally unwind, enjoying the great views and fresh sea air.

We had a seriously good time at the Coral Sea Resort, despite the rain, and we are planning to stay there again and again. Airlie Beach is a fabulous getaway destination and if you are after accommodation that is close to everything, doesn't cost an arm and a leg, but is upmarket from the backpacker trade, don't hesitate putting Coral Sea Resort on your list.
