This is a terrific location for a family getaway. We firstly drove in with our surf craft on top of our four wheel drive and didn't have to take them off to get in... that was a treat compared to most other more modern resorts. the expansive pool with water slides for the kids topped it off for space from...

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment overlooking the Coolangatta district for 2 nights. It was spacious, bright, clean and the bed was really comfortable. A great night's sleep. Undercover secure parking. Our hairdryer sounded dodgy and they gave us a brand new one straight away after calling reception, no question. The location is perfect for the beach and restaurants....

The location on Griffith Street is fantastic. Fast and easy access to either Griffith St or Marine Pde - shops, cafes, restaurants and the beach. The pool area is brilliant for families with children. Pool is only 90cm deep so easy for young children to touch the bottom. Water slides and hot tub provide hours of fun. We stayed in... More

We booked the Oaks Calypso about 6mths before our wedding- and yes, as bride's do, I was very fussy and rang the resort and asked if we could please have a lovely room as it's where we were spending our wedding weekend.

Stayed 4 nights. Charged me to change towels, and sheets. Didn't provide laundry powder. No other hotel does this. Found a cockroach in the kitchen cupboard. The rooms are old and a bit run down. I think you can get better value for money elsewhere.

Has great views to the beach from 4th floor, 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom apt. Great pools for little kids and big kids, water slide, spa. Plus a small island. Close to the restaurants and all types of shops, including supermarkets, movie theatre, Hotel Coolangatta. On the border of NSW so twin towns RSL is walking distance.

We have just returned from 3 nights at this resort in a 2 bedroom executive room. Whilst other reviews did warn us that the resort needs refurbishing, if you can look past that, the place was clean and had everything we required.

My husband and I recently spent a very pleasant week in a unit within this complex. It is situated in a great location, literally across the street from the beach (lifesavers present with flags).
