this is the 2nd time I've stayed at this resort and both times have been very enjoyable Last week we enjoyed a peaceful relaxing getaway - great weather and access to the beach across the park. Bottle of bubbly in our room made the weekend start off just right Staff were all friendly and went out of their way to... More

I purchased a 2 nights' stay for hubby and I in one room, and our daughter and grandson in another room via Travelzoo. Admittedly the price was right for what we thought was a 4 star "resort"! I phoned the venue the day before to ensure all was ok, got told grumpily that if I had received an email to... More

We looked around ballina and byron for somewhere to have our wedding reception and were told about the beach resort. We had 120 guests and everything went off without a problem, staff were lovely, food was reasonable and perfectly timed which is not easy for that many people. The room looked fantastic and the whole weekend was just great. The... More

I am actually currently a patron at this hotel and it is proving to be one awful nightmare. I booked a deluxe room for two nights and this is night one. On arrival I was impressed at reception however was let down by the room which has the most unloved and rusting bathroom suite. The nightmare though is there is... More

Just returned from a short break at the Ballina Beach Resort. It was lovely to be able to still find a resort that offers great service in a very relaxing atmosphere. Coming from the Gold Coast which is busy,noisy and I would say trashy in parts..we were so pleased to still be able to find such a resort operating. We... More

The name "Resort" conjured images of a class establishment and that may have been valid once. The décor was dated, the beds hard and the standard of fit-out and facilities was disappointing. The reception staff were friendly but the rooms were not. Even the little touches, like the provision of shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom, were lacking. The location... More

To top off a fabulous weekend wedding at Ballina Beach Resort I just had the best eggs Benedict I've had for a long time. The wedding reception at the resort was beautifully managed by the man of many talents, Alan (owner manager). A fairy tale setting in the main reception room and despite catering for 120 happy party people the... More

We held a 60th birthday in the function room. The staff were fabulous . The food amazing and great value for dollar .the place was clean and tidy . Staff were always accommodating to every request . Guests were still talking about the food the next day. Was a great night with guests from interstate staying in the accommodation also.

We came at last minute on Travelzoo deal. Positives - beautiful location, well looked after and beautifully presented resort. Friendly and helpful staff. Room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was basic but well presented and staff were helpful. Negatives - a bit far from eating facilities, especially as we came on Sunday and Monday nights when onsite restaurant is closed....

We stay for two nights after purchasing a deal from Travel Zoo for $179 including continental breakfast. Great value. The spacious room was roomy and comfortable overlooking the pool. The continental breakfast was as you'd expect. My husband upgraded his breakfasts both days - smoked salmon, poached eggs and sourdough toast and the next Eggs Benedict, with steamed spinach and...
