Found it really relaxing to not need my car- good restaurants, great coffee roaster, movies...all there. Free wifi. And more akin to staying in a real home- you can open the windows or go out on your balcony. Its been well built so you dont have noise and kitchen smells from the room next door, unlike a couple of the... More

I was told about the Ettalong Beach Resort by my daughter -" You'll feel like you are in Italy! " I wasn't disappointed. Lovely location. Good service. rooms were spacious. Loved the attention to detail of the interior of the whole complex. Markets there were fun. Choice of restaurants in the complex. Was a great stay :-)

Great experience and comfortable hotel, not to mention it's part of many surrounding restaurants that are fantastic to choose from. It is in a world of its own with an art deco style and markets on the weekend. Each cinema is unique with a fantastic feel to match the atmosphere and staff's welcoming attitude. We had a great time.

I booked a two day stay at Ettalong beach tourist resort for my husbands birthday and liked the idea that the accomodation, cinema, restaurants and ferry wharf were all close together. We were to travel in a group of 4 so booked the family room however two people cancelled so we asked to change to the honeymoon suite for only... More
