We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Green Island Resort. The room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable, and the restaurant surpassed our expectations. All the included activities made the package great value. We especially enjoyed the snorkelling and night time nature walks. On top of all this, the service was exceptional. I would definitely recommend Green Island Resort to couples and families.

We had an AWESOME holiday on Green Island. The staff were great. The room was very good. Would defiantly recommend it(and have already started) to everyone. GREAT PLACE TO STAY! It was the high light of our trip. To snorkel off the beach and see the GB reef and fish, how could you not enjoy it. You also spot turtles swimming by. And you are guaranteed to see NEMO! And the FREE drinks at 5.15 each night, PRICELESS! Go Green Island Resort, YOU ROCK!

Everything went smoothly and the staff were always willing to assist and were always serving us with a smile. Everything that we asked for was done straight away and nothing was too much trouble.

Green Island Resort provides you with the feel of an exclusive resort without the over the top price tag. Staff are extremely helpful and keen to be of assistance if needed. We were a little concerned about influx of day trippers during day, however, due to the layout of guest areas, you can choose to mix or stay away. Would totally recommend as a great getaway for couples!

I have to say I thought the service at Travel Star was excellent.
Our time on Green Island was truly a memerable one. The staff were extremely friendly and looked after us like we were royalty. Breakfast was excellent and what a feast lasting us through to drinks at sun set. Which I thought was a great time to meet others on the island. Our trip to the outer reef and the hugh lunch was very enjoyable. we all had a go at snokling out there, little choppy but we had great visability. Had a go at windsurfing where we had such a laugh.
I have told some friends who are planning to make bookings shortly.

The 3 night package in the first week of June was just right for my daughter and I - all arrangements went like clockwork - service was excellent with very friendly staff at the ferry terminal and on the island. Accommodation was also very clean, quiet and comfortable. Restaurant food and service highly recommended. There were not hoardes of day trippers which can sometimes apparently be the case. We attended all the activities, fish feeding, sunset drinks, snorkeling, kayaking and enjoyed everything. The trip to the outer reef was also enjoyable and we had a bit of extra excitement with a helicopter ride back to the island at a discounted price (our cost).
