Guest Reviews

Dinner at the restaurant was really enjoyable the meals were cooked perfectly and great value loved feeding the birds on the balcony as well.The receptionist was super friendly and at the end of our stay one of the team ran back for something I left behind before our bus picked us up…very good service beautiful location surrounded by wildlife bush and gardens Will definitely come back to stay again


Fantastic place to stay for the whole family at a very affordable price! I expected much less for the price but was blown away by the size and comfort of the room. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the food is amazing. This place has everything you could want in a Magnetic Island hotel / resort and I couldn’t recommend it enough. I will be back soon!!!

Management went over and above to make our stay fantastic – very friendly and helpful people. The chef’s meals were outstanding especially the French Toast for brekkie. The barman and wait staff were efficient and accommodating for our last minute requests. Had a wonderful stay and a relaxing weekend, highly recommend Amaroo.

Located 1.4km from the Ferry Terminal, it’s an easy walk or a quick bus ride. Having a restaurant and bar on site with a nice pool is great if you want to sit around and not go anywhere. The rooms were clean and comfortable.
