Popped in here to eat day following our arrival. Food was certainly worth the visit and the service was unbelievable. We ate garlic prawns and barramundi both were excellent. Don't know if we will have time to eat there again unfortunately.

First, let me point this out, the Staff is really friendly, and thats the reason I am giving 3 star to this hotel. Unfortunately, there is nothing more to this hotel.

Ela Beach was very comfortable, great ocean views from our room, very friendly and helpful staff, a very clean hotel and well kept, the Restaurant served great meals and the service at non-meal times was excellent. Staff always ready to help and make a guest feel very special. the business centre was great too.

Rooms in the new wing are really nice with prices coming down significantly on the weekends - breakfast is included - if you happen to be there. Restaurant is okay - it is quite popular. Try the pizzas. Also had the emperor fish - it was juicy. The buffet at K65 is not really worth it. Overall, the hotel is... More

I was told by my colleagues that if you payed the equivalent of $50 more you were "upgraded' into a really nice room, renovated, which was considerably better than where they had booked me.
