We stayed at this resort three days over August. The facilities of the resort were not as great as we would have hoped although had some nice places such as the BYO barbecue area. The food (breakfast only) was a good standard and so was the bar. The only thing we have to complain about is the area around our... More

Having read a few not so good reviews before visiting I was feeling a little nervous but was pleasantly surprised. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our villa had been renovated and looked nice. On closer inspection I felt that it had been cheaply renovated and would probably need to be done again in a few years, but was... More

We have just stayed at the Rendezvous Reef for 8 nights. We stayed with our 2 children aged 6 and 9 in a 2 bed roomed villa. We arrived early evening and were tended to by Richard at reception who was very friendly and informative. The villa itself was clean and tidy. The kitchen was equipped with basic utensils and...

Hi NicJ72 Many thanks for your review. We have recently investigated a number of solutions to assist our guests with better internet connectivity and hope to have a resolution in the near future.

Very disappointing for the price, sad and tired resort with very basic ammenities. We stayed for four nights and were very confused by the four star rating. They charge for every extra including toilet paper, washing powder and pool towels, normally a resort provides these things in the price when you are paying good money. The rooms were supposedly refurbished... More

Hi karlandrachel We were certified a 4 STAR rating in February this year from AAA Tourism. You may be getting confused with the STAR ratings as there are different categories. We are under the "self-contained" banner, other properties may be under the "hotel" banner and they have different measures. Our facilities and accommodation match the four star self-contained accommodation rating.... More

A group of 6 adults shared a 3 bedroom villa for a week. We had a pleasant stay. It was OK; nothing to rave about, a few small things that could be improved. Service was fine. The best part were the native birds in the nearby bushland. Our villa was adjacent to the open air cinema - the sound could... More

4 of us stayed here for 8 nights, the accommodation was fantastic. Couldn't floor a great deal, we really enjoyed staying here. However we were taunted each night by the smoke detectors, each night at random times (late evening, early morning) the smoke detectors went off. Had some very sleeplessness nights due to this, they were very consistent. Otherwise everything... More

We asked for a quiet villa and were dismayed to be given one (Villa 5) right next to the main road with obvious road noise. It was the only one left and couldn’t be changed. Turned out to be almost no problem with noise though – we closed the doors to the 2nd bedroom, the bathroom, and our own bedroom... More
