Use to live in the Bay so we are aware of good and not so good areas. Whilst the Esplanade is picturesque, it can be noisy which is why we chose to stay at the Ramada. Clean and generous sized rooms. Staff are friendly. Breakfast on the first day was great but the second day they were not prepared well enough and ran out of hot food quickly. Thankfully we had been the lucky couple that had already eaten. Excellent location if you are undertaking activities at the boat harbour, Urangan or want a quiet relax. The pool area is beautifully lit at night. A reliable, clean, affordable and friendly hotel. We will return.
