The view from the 47th floor room was amazing! We were recommended a north-eastern aspect and it was fabulous. The apartment had everything needed for any length of stay. There were lots of beds (main room - queen; second room - queen and king single; living room - sofa bed) and heaps of space. The kitchen may be the best... More

Had an amazing stay. Was abit worried having read other reviews but was not disappointed at all. The pool side restuarant/bar is very handy and make great food. The room was a tad on the overpriced side but the view made up for that! Will be coming back for sure!

Phone in room was broken. Ordered room delivery on mobile phone by calling hotel reception. Why would I have to? Was told item was unavailable at the time. Looked again and said same item again which could then apparently be delivered..hmmmm Very poor service. Would never come again.

Dear Rareairunc, Thank you for your Trip Advisor review, unfortunately, you did not provide a unit number so I cannot ascertain if you stayed with the Resort or a private agent. As your review of the apartment is inconsistent with the great majority of our guests, and that fact that you had allocated car spots (The Resort does not allocate... More

My family got there on time, but was told to wait for 20mins. No wine was given, dishwasher didn't work the whole time (stayed for 5 days), didn't receive the best service, but great view, excellent location.

Dear Terry S, Thank you for taking the time to offer some feedback about your recent stay at the Q1 building.
