Beautiful little island
We had 3 nights on this beautiful little island near the end of our holiday in Australia. The staff, room, and food were superb, and the snorkelling, fish-feeding, marine park and evening walks were great fun. The island is quite busy during the day and the lunchtime options are not great. Although it is quite expensive to stay in the resort, it is so lovely when the last of the day-trippers depart at 4.30 and then you feel that you have your own private island. So spend the extra and make sure that you have at least one night there! Also, try a massage there - my wife and I both had a neck, shoulder and back massage and left feeling wonderfully relaxed.
Posted By Gary Gaunt
We had the most wonderful time and will be back.
Only thing that would have improved our trip was some information about parking at the ferry terminal whilst on our stay

Highlight of the trip
Highlight of the trip. If I had to do it over again, I would have done the scuba excursion from cairns, and simply enjoyed the Island. the snorkeling was wonderful. After 4:30, when the last boat has left, the Island is private, serene. Incredible place to connect with people and nature.

We stayed 3 nights on Green Island - myself husband and 15 year old son- we thoroughly enjoyed the island and all the facilities. Yes there are day trippers but there is also great opportunities to be alone on the island and the day trippers ensure the facilities are of a high standard and costs are kept down for everyone to enjoy. Green Island was definitely the highlight of our trip.

The Outer Barrier Reef Cruise was fantastic, even with the bad weather we got that day.

Loved the nature walks
We arrived to find our room ready and that we had been upgraded. The location shows a bit of suffering from the weather, but the rooms themselves were so clean and well set up. We loved the spot. We were able to avoid the crowds during the day and loved the nature walks with the guides. The only negative was our fire alarm went off at five am and it took an hour to turn it off. This is due to the heavy rain that night. We enjoyed the food, but were unimpressed with the wait staff. They were ....less,than friendly and did not provide good service. Julian at the front desk was very helpful, the ladies at the massage, Sid at the beach rental, and Robb and Tony with the nature walks were all friendly, knowledgable and helpful.

A world class facility
The resort is a world class facility. We enjoyed the combination of day visitors and privacy and peace and quiet after the island is closed off to visitors. Snorkelling in the private beach was far better than the day trip on the reef. We saw more fish and turtles than any where else. We would certainly be back.

You are made to feel special
From the moment you check in at the ferry port you are made to feel special, as resort guests. The island is beautiful, especially when the day visitors have gone, and it is so relaxing to enjoy a sunset drink by the jetty. The highlight of our stay was the trip to the Great Barrier Reef. We had never snorkeled before but thoroughly enjoyed the experience-it was much easier than I thought. Room service was excellent value and delicious. The staff were all great.

Posted By John Coxall
Up there with the best!
Um, way better than we were expecting - in fact right up there with the best family resorts anywhere! It was quite easy to avoid the throngs of day trippers and fantastic to snorkel or explore at any time. The rooms were spot-on and quite private and well appointed.
Staff were fantastic and the almost all-inclusive deal was terrific (no need to take your wallet out). The dining at Emeralds Restaurant and the friendliness and efficiency of the wait staff was brilliant! We are seriously missing the fantastic meals and the to-die-for desserts!
The dive shop staff were on the ball, friendly and helpful. We were fortunate to do an intro scuba dive, to snorkel with green turtles and reef sharks. The Outer Reef (Moore Reef)was excellent - equal to the best snorkelling we have ever done. Despite the large no. of people on the boat it was relatively uncrowded on the reef, and we met up close the large Maori Wrasse, and hovered over cleaner fish stations (with fish queuing up to be cleaned) and dove down into the canyons. The variety of corals and fish was amazing and most fish were unphased by our presence.
The rainforest on Green Island and its unique wildlife was also cool, including the guided night walk and fish feeding. Marineland Melanesia was a surprise - whilst small the crocs were really up-close, the art and museum pieces impressive and the stories that each of the family members shared priceless. We seriously wish we were still there.

Staff at Travstar were fantastic!
We had a fantastic time, the service from all the staff were excellent they treated you like you were the only one there even though you were not. The rooms are a great size and very clean. The resort itself needs some work but this did not detract from our stay. We would go back there in heartbeat. The staff at Travstar were fantastic and could not do enough for me, Chanelle understood my situation and could not do enough for me. She was a gem through the whole process. Again thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Loved this resort.
Loved this resort. Staff so friendly & helpful. Heaps of activities to do. Once all the day visitors left, you virtually had the island to yourself. Would definitely recomend this resort.

Quality of arrangements on the pontoon on the Outer Reef for snorkelling and diving were very professional.
Posted By Margaret Forbes
Well run and staff very helpful. As a hotel guest everything was very easy using facilities. Busy with the day trippers who are all in a hurry. Fully subscribed reef tour would not be fun but only 70 on ours was great.

Green Island was great. We would definitely recommnend it to anyone. Our experience was excellent with the exception of one meal which was not good. However the chef actually agreed and personally spoke with us about it and we were not charged.

This is a great place
This is a great place. We could have stayed longer. The staff encountered were all exceptional. It was a great place to be when everyone else had \\\"gone home\\\" The fish feeding and night walks were great fun.

Overall an unforgettable holiday
The island is amazing and so quiet after the day visitors leave. It was great being able to snorkel straight from the beach. The rooms were good but the bed was a little uncomfortable for the back. Food was great however expensive and the other eating options on the island close early in the day so room service dinner was a cheaper option. Front desk service was excellent. They were always more than happy to forfill our strange requests for phone chargers in the middle of the night. Some cleaning staff were a little unprofessional and waiting for our room to be made up was disappointing. Sunset drinks and fish feeding was great and the dive shop staff were excellent. Overall an unforgettable holiday. Will definatley come back again.

We came back relaxed
We thoroughly enjoyed our green island respite. We came back relaxed and with some great stories about our Great Barrier Reef Adventure.

we enjoyed our days there
We have 3 days stay in Green Island. the staffs in the island are very friendly, we tried seawalker, parasailing and snorkelling in the island; and the other day spent in GBR. we saw many fishes and even seaturtles underwater. we enjoyed our days there. We hope the Resort could provide different varieties food during the dinner, cos currently there is only one western food resturant.

Enjoyable holiday experience
Enjoyable holiday experience, with a few nice touches. \\\"fish feeding\\\" tropical reef fish off the jetty, snorkelling above the coral reefs off the beach seeing turtles off the beach swimming freely was a delite to watch.

Only downside was that you only had Emerald restaurant to go to dinner which was a bit pricey and their kids menu is very typical and suitable for toddlers not for in betweens.

Day Spa was the best experience of luxury.
We were very impressed, the only thing was that we had only the \\\"Emeralds\\\" to eat out at night, and it was quite expensive. We had a lovely time however, and our rooom and room service was beautiful, and the Day Spa was the best experience of luxury.
Posted By Carena Hawkins
stunning place to stay
Green Island was a stunning place to stay, particularly the chance to be on the island once the day trippers have left, it was great
Posted By Julie Funnell
We had lovely stay.Very relaxing. Beautiful spot.
Only really expensive because the kids had to have their own room, room sizes would be perfectly fine with 16 yr olds and under sharing room with parents.Shame there was brown slime pollution that hit the island on the last day not tempting to swim in it some staff saying it was the coral spawning !! some said it was algae it would be nice to think someone in Queensland is monitoring it as it looked decidely pollution like to me .
Thanks to you guys Natasha and Kim sorting it out for us much appreciated you were very patient with all our questions.
We will definitely come again.

From Arriving at the Ferry to returning back to Cairns Green Island was a fantastic experience, and I can thoroughly advise using Travstar.Com their customer service was first class.
Posted By Ron Guest
a well arranged trip
a well arranged trip that trav star made very easy for us. green island is a beautiful resort.if a negative was needed, it was strange that only one restaurant and no bar was available after 4-30pm when the day visitors went.would definately use travstar again and would go to green island again any time.x

One of the greatest stay on an island.
Beautiful setting and very well managed facilities.
The great thing is that I am on the reef and can go out to it anytime of the day.

Thanks for a fabulous break

all I had hoped for and more
THANK YOU. We had a really great break on Green Island, it was all I had hoped for and more. I first visited Green Island in about 1975, and was delighted to find that although things have changed a lot, the feel of the island has remained the same. I had a lovely relaxing, happy time, the staff were always informed & helpful. Thank you for your help in making my 'break away' a great success.

we really enjoyed our holiday
we really enjoyed our holiday on Green Is, we were there 22 years ago and a perfect day this time we had 5 perfect days the weather was great, we feed the fish most nights, snorkelled a couple of times each day and really enjoyed the trip to the outer reef which was our first trip out there. We went out on the glass bottom boat several times and down the underwater observatory both at night and day. Enjoyed the room which was up amoungst the trees and went back to see the crocodiles too.

Everything was amazing on Green Island,
Everything was amazing on Green Island, the weather, the staff, the island. We got a great deal through Travstar and when you include all the freebies for resort guests, it really is value for money. My partner proposed on the second last day so we will always have fond memories of the paradise on Green Island. I would also highly recommend the pontoon trip as it has some of the most spectacular coral we have seen in all of our travelling. Thank you

Moonlight strolls along deserted beaches.
Green Island Resort - Great Barrier Reef National Park
A home away from home in the midst of a tropical reef wonderland
Perfect weather each day of 15c to 28c
All the things you need to snorkel safely on the reef and begin to appreciate how lucky we Aussies really are
Drinks at sunset on the beach, a la carte meals on call
moonlight strolls along deserted beaches.
This is something you must do at least once in your life.
We will be going back

Green Island is a gem!
Green Island is a gem. We had perfect weather and spent 4 days walking, snorkelling and just hanging over the railings on the jetty spotting all the different tropical fish - even saw two large turtles swimming by. I would happily recommend it to anyone - and fully intend to come back myself.

The most relaxing holiday destination
Green Island was the most relaxing holiday destination enabling us to do either absolutely nothing or there was plenty to keep us interested. The staff were fantastic and very helpful; the accommodation was luxurious, clean and comfortable. We would happily go again.
Posted By Christine Moore
Plenty of time to rest and relax
We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights on the island. The \\\"day trippers\\\" kept to one side of the island so even during the day you could find a quiet spot and once the last boat had left in the afternoon you had the whole place to yourself and the other guests. I would thoroughly recommend Green Island - it has enough rainforest to wander through and beach to walk around to get the experience without feeling you have to go on a massive hike each day to see everything leaving plenty of time to rest and relax!

Staff were excellent, rooms clean
Very busy island during the day - due to hundreds of day trippers - probably not the place if you wanted a quiet get away otherwise staff were excellent, rooms clean. Restaurant needs to incorporate lighter choices for dinner menu in particular if you are travelling with teenagers or children.
