I rang the front desk asking about a 24hr deal. Jack who took the call was most helpful and polite. Formalities were concluded over the phone and on arrival an hour or so later check in was fast and painless. Reception staff were very polite and helpful. Our room had as described a partial ocean view and we were satisfied... More

Only stayed one night however thought it may be nice to have a swim in my 4 star resort which I had paid for, actually charged $2.50 per towel to go for a swim ! Not a deposit it's for the use of the towel ! Quite rude I thought as did my friend and we have both travelled extensively.

Having an offer from time share company, I and my husband stayed here for a weekend. The price was good but had to deal with 1.5 hr "holiday seminar" stuff which was initially supposed to be half hour. The room was okay size, but was very tired with musty smell. The rubbish bin had not even emptied when we checked... More

We stayed here at the end of Feb for a week for part of our honeymoon. We had a penthouse 2 bedroom apartment with a roof top spa. First and foremost the staff were all so very helpful and friendly both in the planning process and also whilst we were there. Secondly and equally just as important in my view,... More

We booked a deal and although the hotel has a nice pool area and direct access to the beach the area of Marcoola is probably the worst on the coast with no shops, no coffee/cafés/ decent restaurants. The hotel room was pokey with a queen size bed, tiny bathroom and a musty smell ... More like a travel lodge than... More

Maybe I went in with too high expectations. The room I booked was originally referred to as a "deluxe" room. After making the booking the resort has changed their classifications and the room we got was a "queen". Queen - yes, Deluxe - absolutely not. Air conditioning very noisy, only one working light in the bathroom, pool open til 9pm... More

Hi there, we booked a couple of nights away at your hotel, were terribly disappointed at the room we received, as we had paid for an upgrade and paid an extra $100 (through a booking service), and it was a special time, our 22nd wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday, anyway, we contacted the desk and were very impressed at...

Good venue for a conference. waking up at sunrise to the sound of the ocean, followed by a walk on the beach, and tasty breakfast. Conference room was comfortable had two screens and had good acoustics. Bar had good selection of beers. Evening meals were fresh and tasty. Single room was a little bit tiered looking and needed a little... More

Reception greeted us dryly, then sent us to another desk for "welcome pack". Welcome pack was an invite to join Wyndham holiday group :( 1 bedroom apartment was smaller than other places. Looked nice. Balcony was tiny. Partial beach view was provided as promised... but very partial. Art work hidden behind TV. Couch was very uncomfortable (very old sofa bed... More

Having stayed at the hotel section of the resort - towers either side were timeshare but also so much better equipped. Rooms are small, air con didn't work efficiently - but service desk/maintenance man provided a pedestal fan very quickly. Comfort items in room are very limited. Small bar fridge took a day to get to the stage of keeping... More

Dear JohnandFi1953, Thank you for your review, there is some mistake though as the towers on either side of our Central Tower are not all timeshare they are primarily all holiday letting pool apartments. The Central Tower is the older building by some 30 years and the hotel rooms are smaller, consequently there is a price differential. Drifts Bistro restaurant... More
