This is the most amazing resort we have stayed at! The resort has only recently reopened after being renovated and it is absolutely spectacular. The views from the room and the pool area are simply mesmerising looking over the beach and the offshore islands and the food in the restaurant was superb. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner there every day during our 3 nights stay and loved everything on the menu! Frozen cocktails around the pool were a highlight too as they changed flavours every day. The staff were all friendly and the service was impeccable. The rooms are decorated beautifully and ours had a beautiful view looking down the length of Mission Beach. The whole resort feels hidden as it is surrounded by rainforest and coconut palms and it was probably the most relaxing holiday we have ever had...our only regret is that we couldn't stay for longer!

Wow, what a place and what a view, they are in the process of remodeling or restoring parts of the resort but the newly finished rooms, common areas and pool (and the views everywhere) are phenomenal. Pictures do not do this place justice, we really enjoyed everything about the place, and the food is excellent. They get a healthy local crowd in for lunch and dinners if that helps justify the quality and ambience for sceptics..

So, we were so excited to be going to ‘Elandra Restaurant’ with a large group of friends from all circles of life. The expectation was high as we had been for late afternoon drinks which were lovely, but last weeks dinner was utter disappointment. For the the money we spent on a 3 course meal, we got hardly anything and all walked away hungry and pretty angry. Very sad.

Absolutely breathtaking. So wonderful to see this resort restored. The pool area and restaurant are more glorious than ever. Congratulations to everyone involved. It is fabulous! We are holidaying at Mission Beach and came to the resort for lunch with stunning views of the Family Islands. Loved the smoked chicken cold soba salad. Simple but scrumptious. The service was excellent. The views were great despite the drizzling rain.

This place looks amazing and they've only been open for a month or so. We thought we'd go and check it out and were really the only people there. Well dressed and accustomed to resorts, we ordered drinks and sat down to soak up the view. Nope,we couldn't sit there - they were setting up for lunch. We were literally the only people there! We asked if we could stay there just long enough to finish our drinks. Nope, after "checking" the waiter insisted we move to anothrr table away from the view and in a hot corner behind the bar. Not one of the tables was set for lunch and not one person came in. We didn't bother ordering a second round or lunch, we just left wondering how long before the staff are unemployed again.

Response from Sam Charlton, Owner at The Elandra Resort
Responded Jan 9, 2024
Hi P9369FHjohnm Thank you for your feedback and positive comments about the location and views, and we are sorry the balance of your experience did not meet your expectations. Your visit was over the Xmas/January Holidays, a period that we have been very busy with both lunch and dinner bookings – with the restaurant being fully booked most days for both services, including the day of your visit. While we encourage all guests to make a reservation for lunch or dinner if possible, we will always try and accommodate guests without a reservation. In this regard, we have a large number of seating options other than the restaurant including our bar tables and pool courtyard dining area that are available for seating without a reservation, all with amazing views. We regret that none of these seating options were acceptable to you, however we do also need to ensure that our reserved tables are ready for guests with reservations when they arrive. As mentioned in your review, we have only just opened and we are continually improving our guest experience at Elandra, and we hope that you can give us another chance to look after you with either a breakfast, lunch or dinner reservation in the future. Regards Sam

Wow, wow, wow!
Have just enjoyed a very indulgent couple of days at the Elandra. Everything was just wonderful, from the breathtaking view you arrive to, the welcoming and attentive staff, the tastefully furnished room with its huge fluffy towels and stunning outlook, and the amazing food!
Feel very privileged to have had the Elandra experience! Thank-you; we hope to return!

The Elandra Resort is the best resort my wife and I have ever stayed at in Australia, and we’re not young😁. The staff, rooms, facilities, food and location are all second to none. I very rarely use the word “Faultless”, however when describing The Elandra, it’s appropriate. Well done to the humble hard working owners with a vision and their fantastic staff.

A fantastic place for a lunch on Sunday.
Excellent lunch menu, fresh tuna bowl.
Finished with a small cheese platter.
The staff were professional and attentive. Relaxed atmosphere.
Great place for brunch, plenty of parking and a view to die for.

This is a great Asset to Mission Beach, Lifting to a High International standard.
The design, ambience bring excellence to this resort. What a fantastic View of the Family group of Islands.
The staff friendliness and efficiency in all areas starting from arrival .
The Reception, Bars ,Dining and House Staff are All excellent.
The Resort’s High Standard in my opinion is due to hands on Management of the owners.
