Have stayed here before and loved it however this time we paid twice as much for a bigger apartment and were really disappointed. The location is fabulous and the pool is great however I don't think we'll bother going back there again. We were offered 30 minutes free wi-fi per day ... except they forgot to mention that in some... More

Staying here on a business trip was never going to be ideal however I have always been a little curious so gave it a try. I've stayed with Oaks before in Sydney and Melbourne and have had varying success. For a frequent traveller it's laughable but cheap that the first thing to draw your attention is the 3 large signs... More

The location is great and the room I stayed in with my wife was very spacious. But our main complain regarded the cleanliness (or the lack of it) inside the room. That aside, we had a great stay. The room was equiped with a small kitchen, with fridge and a cooktop oven. The beach at Coolangatta is beautiful, and if... More

We had a studio apartment overlooking the pool area and were very happy with it. Although it was looking a bit tired there were no real problems. The best part of this hotel is it's location, absolutely spot on. Also the underground parking is great and the staff are very helpful. Would definitely stay again, Thanks

We stayed for a week in a 1 bedroom apartment. Had an awesome time, swam everyday in the pool and at the beach, went to the nearby kids parks and scootered at the skate park, which is just a 5 minute walk away. Didn't cook a meal, although I could have. Perfect spot for a total relax. Heaps of restaurants... More

We went for the weekend. Awesome location walk straight across the road to the beach. The kids loved the pool with the water slide. Right outside the door are a number of great restaurants and cafés. The rooms were clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. There is a kids game room. Would love to come back again.

My wife and I booked and stayed 3 nights at the long established Calypso, now managed by Oaks. Unfortunately we booked through some agency we thought was Calypso, but may not have been.
