Where could we start? We can not reccomend the Sebel Reef House and Spa highly enough!!! It is just gorgeous, quiet, very well set out, has great swimming pools and great spas, the rooms are very nice, We were lucky enough to see 3 different rooms (the brigadier, verandah & verandah spa rooms) as My husband & I got married through the sebel and spent majority of our honeymoon there - we had guests stay in different rooms. All 3 styles were great!!!
The staff were FANTASTIC!!!! Caroline (function co-ordinator) organised our wedding on the GORGEOUS beach right accross the road & was so eager to please and make sure everything went well! As soon as we arrived we had a staff member greet us out the front and collect our baggage for us. The breakfast staff are really great & one staff in particular Hamish made us feel so welcome - he was a great laid back guy! The Reception staff are also FANTASTIC anything we needed was not a hassle at all.
On the day of check in when we were taken to our room we initially got a shock because the Verandah Spa room we got given was totally different to the photos we had previously seen and obviously not what we expected although was very very nice indeed, But just mentioning that to the staff member that walked us up resulted in a change of room in not even 5 minutes, they just wanted us to be 110% satisfied and happy!
The main meals at the hotel are delicious but there is not a big variety, still very very yummy! If you stay we definantly reccomend the 'Full Breakfast' Includes buffet breaky aswell as a main breaky menu item!!! Wont need to eat for the rest of the day or night! Lots of fresh yummy fruit, cereals, a meat platter, fresh pastries, muffins, Toast, english muffins & a huge amount of spreads to choose from along with tea, coffee and 4 choices of juices! Breakfast is on the timber decking out the front of the reef house and looks directly at the gorgeous beach front. One morning we even saw dolphins playing around in the water!
The Whole Reef House is very tidy, there is a honour system at the communal 'Bar' where you help your self to drinks out of the fridge then record your room number and name along with what you have had to drink or snack on. Every night at 5pm there is a alcoholic fruit punch placed out on the bar and is help your self at no charge - it is a really nice punch we must say with fresh fruit aswell!
The halls between rooms are lit up with candles every night and the whole of the 'resort' is just beautiful!!! The pools all light up a gorgeous shade of blue & so do the spas.
We spent 4 nights there then went to Port Doulas.... only to be disapointed at Port Douglas.... way too comercial and built up! we ended up only spending 2 nights there and coming back to the Reef House!!! Thats how much we loved it and absoulutely missed it! We called up and they had a room available for us and welcomed us back and had a laugh with us too when we arrived... again! We have aldready planned to go back in Janurary.
All in all the Sebel Reef House and Spa is our slice of heaven!!!!
