Dear Melsbeast, It is natural for a business to evolve over time and, having been at the forefront of tourism in the Capricorn region for close to 30 years, Capricorn Resort is no exception. Despite the name changing, the resort has retained the same owner since development and the scale and size of the business is under constant review to... More

Thankfully I am not tall but one of my relatives is and he couldn't stand up straight in the shower. Another wonderful touch was the cutlery draw at near the floor. It was at the right height for an infant to engage in misadventure. Some of the vending machines didn't work. Some roof tiles appeared to be loose or missing.... More

One on hand you could easily conclude that this place is past its use-by date. A generous description of quality of furnishings would be 'tired'. On the other, the room cost $178.80 (total cost for 2 nights) and that included hot and cold breakfast. The pool area is lovely. Waterslide, waterfall and expansive resort pool plus beach style lagoon and... More

Hi Patricia, Thank you for your support of our Poolside Sessions, it was a wonderful weekend and I am sure you will agree that headline acts Kasey Chambers, Russel Morris, Darren Middleton and Jeremy Marou playing by our lagoon was a fantastic experience. We hope to see you at our next concert series. Regards Mat FInch General Manager More

We stayed in an ocean view room and will never forget the beauty of the view from the ocean, and the glorious sunsets changing the colour of the ocean every night. Staff were friendly, helpful and courteous at all times. Food was plentiful and lovely. I'd recommend it for all but it's especially family friendly. I would have liked to... More

Dear POS90, We are disappointed that the room type selected did not meet your needs and are sorry that you departed early. Whilst I agree that the Araucaria apartments are due for some upgrades they continue to be a popular and affordable option, particularly for families. I must also highlight that the resort has a full team of qualified tradesmen... More

I stayed in room 3110 and the door would not close you had to insert door card and then close. this would happen every time you left the room. Room had a balcony which was good. The best thing...

Firstly be aware that this resort is NOT now under the Mercure name. My room was spacious enough with a very comfortable bed, but the decor and furnishing were a little dated. I'd rate the rooms as 3 and a half star quality. However the resort stands on very large grounds, and the outdoor pools, lawns and gardens and facilities... More

I've been here about once a year for the past 3 years. It's definitely an old resort in need of repair, but it's a gorgeous location right next to the Coral Sea. There are tons of activities for families, including an incredible pool complex. There are kangaroos roaming the grounds in the evening, sure to delight little ones. The Lagoon... More
