We were looking for an alternative to the Gold Coast - which is 15 hours drive away, Wollongong is just 2.5 hours away.
Adina satisfied all our criteria: fully self-contained apartment; pool, gym (also has sauna and spa); close to the beach and close to shops. Although we prefer to cook our own meals, Adina is located right next to a very good restaurant strip.
We had a one bedroom apartment - clean and very spacious, fully equiped with modern utilities; good view of the ocean from the balcony. The pool, gym etc was also well equiped and all equipment was in good working order.
The staff from check in to check out were all very friendly and efficient. At the check in , our papers were ready and were processed very quickly. The check-out was the same.
I would normally rate this as 10/10. However, we rate it 9.5 as parking can be an issue, especially when the hotel is heavily booked and although it provides a free 30 minute (per 24 hours) internet access the fees for of the other plans are like most hotels,very expensive.
We will be back next year and hopefully for a few shorter stays throughout the year. Adina and Wollongong is truly an alternative to the Gold Coast.
We stayed in room 604 - facing north, with a reasonable view of the ocean. We have also heard that...
