We stayed at the Ettalong Tourist Beach Resort for a weekend in August in the bridal suite for the extra room. We were a little taken back as we were deciding between the Mantra and here. We chose here for something different. It was a lot older in the rooms and they needed a definite upgrade. Like 70s looking furniture... More

It just came down to the little things - plastic covers on the pillows (really!!!) - no tissues - toaster in room, but no plates or cutlery - hard floors and no complimentary slippers - I know I'm being fussy but apart from that I don't have any complaints. There are 10 restaurants in the complex (we had Indian) and... More

The car park is crowded and has spaces for only 10... More

We had a family room which was roomy and satisfactory for what we needed, family had a single room which was a little small compared to other places we have stayed. The place has some character, and situated above the markets and other smaller restaurants and cafes is ideal if you are after a relaxing night out and not interested... More

The Ettalong Beach Tourist Resort is fantastic for those wanting to relax. The resort is very very quiet, yet it houses a Cinema and several restaurants. The Beach and local shops are with in walking distance.

We stay at the Resort each year for the Italian Festival and find the resort, the staff and the facility brilliant. It's a nice way to enjoy a wonderful Festival in nice clean well serviced rooms. We love the way the it's all modeled on an Italian village with lovely restaurants and cafe's.
