Benji Marshall recently retired from the NRL after 18 years in the game.
And to celebrate, he treated his wife Zoe and their two children, daughter Ever, four months, and son Fox, four, to a seaside vacation in the Whitsundays.
His podcast host posted to her Instagram Stories on Thursday, sharing an honest review of The Daydream Island Resort.
Family Holiday: To celebrate the NRL’s retirement, Benji Marshall this week treated his wife Zoe and their two children, daughter Ever and son Fox, to a seaside holiday in the Whitsundays, Queensland.
“It’s paradise, but the Whitsundays are!” she started her long post.
‘The view from dinner every night was exceptional. We stayed around the kiddie pool every day… We had a group of 18 with 10 kids,” Zoe, 37, told her followers.
However, the media personality also shared with fans an honest picture of the resort amenities.
‘Feedback from one of the parties was that there should be more shade over the children’s pool, a playground on this side of the island.
“The interactive live reef is cool too, but costs $30 to feed the fish. There are wallabies everywhere and that’s pretty amazing,’ she added.

The whole gang: ‘The view from dinner every night was exceptional. We stayed around the kiddie pool every day… We had a group of 18 with 10 kids,” Zoe told her followers.
Zoe also said that she and her husband Benji requested two separate rooms so she could sleep with her newborn while he stayed with his son.
“It was more expensive, but I knew I’d be spending so much time here with Ever,” the mother commented of her stay.
The couple’s outing comes after Zoe shared a heartfelt tribute to her husband following his retirement from the NRL.
Separate rooms: Zoe also said that she and her husband Benji requested two separate rooms so she could sleep with her newborn baby while he stayed with his son.
The mother of two, who has been married to the Premiership-winning footballer since 2013, shared a video earlier this month embracing Benji after his loss in the Grand Final.
In the caption, she wrote that “Benj will always be successful. He’s that man who’s brilliant at everything.’
At the time, she also said that the athlete is a “brilliant football player and a brilliant man.” Congratulations on a great football career my dear.”

The loving tribute comes after Marshall, 36, confirmed at a press conference in Brisbane earlier this month that he is hooking the boots on what has been a remarkable sporting journey.
The five-eighth made his NRL debut in 2003, with his silky-smooth skills and trademark sidestep that quickly made him a favorite with Wests Tigers and rugby league fans.
Two years later he won a premiership and played for a second time with the St George Illawarra Dragons, Brisbane Broncos, the Tigers and this year the South Sydney Rabbitohs in what was a brilliant NRL career.
Kiwi international Marshall also briefly defected to rugby union with the Auckland Blues in 2014 – only to return to the NRL after just six Super Rugby appearances and link up with the Dragons.
Marshall also confirmed he will sign a two-year deal with Fox Sports as he embarks on a media career after the NRL (pictured, with wife Zoe and children Fox and Ever)
