Room was what you would expect if you were staying at a out of date caravan park, over priced food and drink, nothing in this resort is child friendly, the only good thing about this place is the location, needs to be knocked down an rebuilt.

Disappointed with the 3 day stay. Breakfast standard and service was poor, restaurants had a captured audience and pricing was high for what was received. Pool and location still excellent. Rooms clean

Wonderful experience on a unique island. Birdlife good,resort surroundings peaceful. Day tour a definite 'must' for visitors. Great learning experience and good tour guide Kev. Great venue to relax or to have a business meeting. Overall experience very good.

I went to Fraser with a view of seeing a wild dingo… after 2 days not one! … however I was lucky enough to have one outside my room near the dam the morning I had to leave so that fulfilled my major wish for the weekend.

Pick in Hervey Bay was poorly organized, After checking with resort was lied to about delay issues. Bus driver had not started shift until 30 minutes after our pick up time. Cleanliness of rooms and public areas needs to be reviewed. Ferry trip for someone with a disability also needs to be addressed. Accor members are hardly recognized, compared with...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kingfisher Bay. The pool was beautiful. Our villa was clean and the kitchen and laundry facilities in the villa were important to us as we were traveling with young children. The resort was a lovely place to return to after exploring during the day.

We had a great time. It is the second time we have stayed at Kingfisher Resort and this time we brought extra people back with us. We look forward to coming back. Love the beaches, 4WD and relaxing at the resort. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Had a 2 night stay - found the staff to be great. Sand Bar certainly made the weekend very affordable food wise. Loved the Beauty Spots tour - couldn't recommend this one highly enough - do the flight also!

Relaxing barge trip to an excellent location. Surprised by the overall size of the resort. Had a wonderful time. Facilities first rate Sand Bar a little shabby. 2 days way too short to enjoy. BYO 4WD. We'll be back.
