An amazing location, an amazing resort with heaps of great features. Just lacked presentation, weeds growing in pathways, paint cracked and faded, staff not seeming to care at all. Food presented stale and bland. Rooms were neat, tidy but very out dated. It was funny to watch Palmer TV, great laugh that was haha

You must be kidding for the price paid I expect at least a decent room and service, normally I do not trust negative reports on trip advisor, however this time I should have listened. All the positive ones must have stayed at a different resort to me, because this place was attrocious. Food bad, service very bad, had to wait... More

It would be a shame to think that people would use Trip Advisor as a tool to attack a Venue just for spite. We have tried to contact Bradleyvonx but have not received any response. We have no record of anyone staying at the Resort using that name OR any reports in our Duty Managers log of the above incident.... More

A little tricky to find (without GPS), very pleasant setting, large rooms, native wildlife up close, cool dinosaurs, not a golfer myself but apparently a quite good course and a generally good spot ie close to airports etc Probably a more upmarket place ie $$$

Where to start? Arrived at 3:15pm to be told they didn't think our room was ready (check in is at 2pm) but they weren't sure. Waited over 20 mins whilst they tried to sort it out, very hot day and my kids were out in car. Then had to wait another 10 for a buggy to take us to room.... More

We were so looking forward to staying at this place as one of our relatives highly recommended it but it was a big let down. We arrived at this place around mid day, the entrance looked pretty awesome with big dinosaurs and that was about it. We checked in, got dropped off at our room,we opened the door and sense... More

We stayed here on the weekend for 1 night with friends as the boys were playing golf the next morning. The whole resort is tired and needs some TLC. The gardens were so overgrown and there was mud all over the villas which only need a pressure wash to get clean. There were small plants and leaves growing out the... More

I really didn't know what to expect staying here. We stayed in a two bedroom Golf Villa as the Villa's were the only rooms available to suit us at last minute at New Years and were very expensive at $500 a night. The room was lovely and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Because we had paid so much... More

We spent 2 days at the resort over Christmas and boxing day. We got to see kangaroos close up. The rooms were great but not every unit comes with a kitchen (we should have asked). Buggies with very friendly drivers take you to and from your unit which unfortunately for us just didn't work well as there was always something... More

Clearly this resort used to be very good, but appears to have declined rapidly recently. The facilities were poorly maintained, often closed and there was a clear shortage of staff across the whole resort - there appeared to be a real lack of management. However the majority of the staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you. With investment... More
