  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The Colonial Palms is set directly across the road from the Airlie Beach Marina, which is the jumping off point for tours and ferries to the Islands. The rooms were clean and the beds were so comfortable. Our room was air conditioned, which was very welcomed and there is a beautiful big pool available for use. The complimentary breakfast was a great way to start our day and the staff and owners were so helpful and lovely.
