"Yes it got even better!"
Background: I was supposed to return to Lizard in 2015 and it wasnâ€™t finished with the refurb so they rang last minute and cancelled. I wasnâ€™t happy but the next cyclone, Nathan, hit right when I was supposed to be there so I was actually a winner. We had been pretty much each year from 07 until 13 and this hiccup saw me look to cruises OS and Saffire as a replacement. Family time (yuk kids) also blocked out any potential dates. Why rebook? We had a significant date which could only be done on Lizard and a return guest package sweetened the appeal. The reality? Booking and pre visit: Delaware North never win awards (see my review for Heron last year) for the booking process and answering questions before arrival. Everything I had requested was sorted, I just didnâ€™t know until arrival. Flight: Not fussed on East Air but the new plane is lovely and our flight was perfect. Check In: We were met by Emilio and he has really brought Lizard back to the paradise it was. Friendly and guest focussed. I was totally relaxed and felt I was back home by the time we had our room. Our little explanation tour was definitely needed. The Room: Iâ€™ve had #33 (and 32) a few times and the new fit out is spectacular. The rooms are bigger and lighter and the view to the beach top notch. Our little sunbird was still building his nest on 34 and the lizards were moseying around under the deck. The addition of a bean bag to the deck is spot on as is the dining table. I didnâ€™t spend as much time on the daybed as normal because there was too much to do. The rooms are a tad warmer due to the loss of foliage but with the sliders closed itâ€™s all good. Significantly more storage/hanging space for clothes. The beds are awesome, snore quality is high. Housekeeping: Our room was spotless and this is the first time itâ€™s always been spot on. Thanks Denise C, Gabby and crew. Minibar: Wow what an improvement, no longer a few beers, red wine, white wine, pringles and cookies. GD was able to snack on healthy bites, the Jila mints were great to take out for after a snorkel and having cider and a variety of other drinks in the fridge made for a win. Dining: Food has always been good and this time was no exception, but it was even better than ever, plenty of options, totally catered for allergies and the introduction of Tapas and Grill nights a big plus, even bigger bonus is the removal of the â€œreceptionâ€ night where the BBQ was always hit and miss. Service in the restaurant was the best than I have ever seen. Not one person let us down. Stand outs were Bastien, Alessandro, Nicole, Taylah, Erin, Emily and Chloe. ????? Daniela runs a tight ship and it works really well. Tailoring personal requests left me smiling. Picnic lunches are served in a Bento Box which makes them waste limited and the perfect size. Easy to eat from your lap while floating off a deserted beach. Drinking: Once again a huge change. A widely varying list with some included cocktails, winner was a Citrus Mule. Not once did I go Hmmmm nothing here I want. (and the barge wasnâ€™t due until Thursday) Jarrod makes some great options and the cocktail class with Paul S was amazing. GD is a cocktail queen and for her to walk away with new ideas is a definite bonus for me. (I get to drink them) Marine and Dive: Probably the only place I didnâ€™t feel was up to what it had been. M&D has always been a highlight for us. Generally the staff there are relaxed and chatty, happy to talk about what will meet your needs. A few staff this time had an â€œitâ€™s all about meâ€ attitude and we got mixed messages about tides etc. This was also evident on our full day trip. I loved the moving of beach club to lagoon when the northerlies hit but TBH if we have booked a dinghy for 11 and are driven down to the beach at 10.15 hoping for a paddleboard which you have already unpacked, donâ€™t pretend we arenâ€™t there and take off in Nemo. This had been radioed ahead. (Monday 4th). We had a lovely relax under the awning but would have liked to take the dinghy out at 11 not at 11.20. At 12pm I turn into a lobster and the tidal closure was 2 despite us being told otherwise. One of the staff should have stayed on the beach and prepared the dinghies. It doesnâ€™t take 3 to cruise around the lagoon and check it out then return at 11 to start to prepare the dinghies. We had a few other issues as well, same staff, but I wonâ€™t go into them here because I feel they were not indicative of the island at all. Nick did a great job trying to sort out the issues, but if the staff are there to party and not for what they are paid to do then no amount of management will help. Ava was a total breath of fresh air, sorting things and service focussed and Jaz did a great job with GDs refresher dive. Important to note that the problems only pertain to a few individuals NOT the entire staff. Activities: There are a whole new range of things to do, so much so I rarely had any downtime. Not everything is beach or water focussed so all types of guests are catered for. Yoga was a new introduction and I would have loved to have done more. We tried Stand Up Paddleboard yoga and Kelly did a wonderful job catering to 2 very different levels of ability. Normally we kayak, and the new completely see through version looks perfect, didnâ€™t have time to use it! Wine appreciation, informative sessions for the sommelier and cocktail classes etc are all on offer. GD used the gym and was very happy with the equipment. The Reef: We did both a half day to The Banks and the Full day to Cod Hole and Dynamite. I have to say Dynamite is showing post cyclonic effects but you can clearly see regeneration. Full Day- The guide was very good and we had amazing vis. Iâ€™ve done the the Cod Hole numerous times and Iâ€™d have to say this was the best one ever. Normally I view Cod Hole as a dive site but this time it was a better snorkel than Dynamite. Half Day: The Banks are in surprisingly good condition and with just 2 of us aboard we had an awesome morning (surely it cost more to run the trip than we paidâ€¦..customer satisfaction came first) GD and Jimmy used the full hour of dive time and Ellen was a perfect guide. Russ and Odette showed true passion for what they do. Local Snorkels: The Clam Garden in Watsons is better than ever and there was an excellent variety of fish. Mermaid was smashed by the cyclone but is also showing some signs of recovery. The Lagoon has pockets of bommies with fish life. If staghorn coral is your thing then you may struggle but there is an abundance of fish life and leather corals and quite a few anemone with fish. Degustation: WOW! We hadnâ€™t done the dego since 2007 for one reason or another. From 2012 I felt it was more about romance BUT I AM WRONG, it was all about the food. So here was a mother/daughter, admittedly foodies, doing a sunset dining with a menu designed to our wants. I cannot begin to say how the good the food was, the staff noticed our Coral Trout basically return as bones. The lobster perfect and oysters to die for. THIS IS A MUST DO! Forget the extra $$, the food was every bit as good a Quay, Saffire and many other top 50 restaurants around the world. I would actually do this again in preference to a day trip (well, maybe!) Spa: The visit to the spa is always a key part of any GD and me trip and this was no exception. I was a little underwhelmed by the spa menu but it was actually really quite complex with the option for add ons after arrival. My facial was excellent and my skin is still glowing 2 weeks later. GDâ€™s fried legs soaked up the after sun added to her massage. Perfect pressure for my back massage. Hot tip, book before you arrive if you have a short stay. Conclusion: I have been saying to my friends this was one of the best trips I have ever done and that is no exaggeration. I came home relaxed and I am still feeling revitalized. I cannot wait to return next year, hmmm Saffire or Lizard but in the words of GD â€œPorque no los dosâ€ I had so many fears the changes to Lizard would leave me unfulfilled. A huge thank you to Emilio who made our return to Lizard so special and a place I want to go yet again. I honestly thought after 6 nights I would be ready to go home, but I wasnâ€™t ready and now a week later I am ready to go back. Yes it is expensive, but rest assured, Lizard is once again a premium property, with top class experiences and fine dining. I donâ€™t think it can be beaten.
"Three Days in Paradise"
There are not enough words to describe how I feel about Lizard Island. I have travelled extensively and this is one of the most relaxing, beautiful and peaceful places on earth. Whilst the island itself is rocky and not particularly attractive, they have done fantastic work in keeping the tropical gardens around the resort which makes you feel like you're in a tropical paradise. From the moment you arrive you are treated like you're being welcomed by old friends, the service throughout the resort is attentive but without being pretentious. The food and wine are all fantastic, and the 7 course degustation dinner on the beach is one I will remember for a long time. The wine cellar has an extensive collection for those who wish to spend a little more for a special occasion or have more refined tastes. The rooms are simple and tasteful, and very light and bright which makes the colours of the ocean pop the moment you walk into the room. You will never tire of the view! There are a lot of activities available that can keep you busy all day if that's the type of holiday you're after. We took the more laid back approach, exploring neighbouring beaches and spending some time in the spa. The giant Clam gardens are amazing and we were lucky enough to see lots of fish on this little reef, we also swam with Sea Turtles which is yet another experience I'll never forget. There is no mobile phone reception, and wifi only in the lobby and restaurant areas, which is actually nice because people talk to eachother!! It also forces you to take a break and really relax. The staff are also what makes this place so special. Emilio, the General Manager, is a kind and gracious host, and we also enjoyed time spent with Bastian, and Aaron. Paul was always up for a friendly chat, along with most of the staff who obviously love the island as much as their guests. I will absolutely be back as soon as possible - we were very sad to leave this special place!
"I came for the fringing reef"
I have snorkelled in Turtle bay and Watsons bay and climbed to Cooks lookout with Coral Expeditions before on day trips, so this time I decided to spend some time on Lizard Island on the all inclusive resort. Yes its very expensive, but you are holidaying in what I would call one of the great spots on the Barrier Reef. This is a fringing reef so you can step right off the beach right onto the reef. I could snorkel whenever I wanted to. You can hire out the boats for free and take a trip to other bays around the Island, or if the wind gets up the boats get moved to the lagoon side of the island, then you can take the boats out from that side. I was impressed by the reef/drop off at the end of Anchor bay, and saw a few black tips and managed to get a picture of an eagle ray as it came in with the tide. You could take trips out to the cod hole at the outer reef, along with middle reef trips, but as I had just been with Coral Expeditions to two of the ribbon reefs, I didn't do those trips... I didn't need to...! The location on the island is very good... the meals are fine, along with the wine/beer/soft drinks whatever you want... I stayed in a beach villa overlooking Anchor bay which was ideal. My main reason for coming to Lizard was for the fringing reef, and for the relaxation of the island, yes it did it for me. If I had the money I would be back.
"Luxury in paradise "
We stayed at Lizard Island Resort for four days on the first part of a month long trip to Australia. It certainly isnâ€™t cheap, but it is such a beautiful place and the resort is so quiet and peaceful that we wished we had stayed longer. The resort is all inclusive apart from a few activities (e.g. reef trips) so when you take this into account it is similar in cost to staying at other similar resorts. The difference is that Lizard Island is such a fabulous place to stay. Unlike some other islands it is right on the Great Barrier Reef and the coral is right there on the beach with many different corals, fish and even giant clams only a few metres from the shore. If you donâ€™t fancy snorkelling you can still see the marine life from a glass bottomed kayak or the resortâ€™s glass bottomed boat. The food was exceptionally good and was all inclusive, as was all the alcohol apart from the more expensive wines. All in all a most beautiful place to stay for a few days. We will definitely return some time.
"Beautiful barrier reef."
We arrived by plane to this lovely island, had wonderful views of the reef the whole trip, which was about an hour. Once arriving we were greeted with a drink and snack, then individually taken to our rooms. We had booked a garden view room but we actually still had a view of the sea, which was fantastic. The food was absolutely the best and drinks whenever we wanted. The highlight was the snorkelling and secluded beaches. Swimming with the turtles is a must.
