I stayed here for the WMC in March. I loved it. I loved the location too.
The pool overlooks downtown and has a giant adult sandpit with sun beds. The pool area has sun and shaded areas. Pool food was great – try the Chicken Salad with pineapple!! LUSH
It’s around a 10-15min walk to Collins / Beach so it might not be the perfect base for everyone but I personally loved the hotel and I think it’s worth the 6/7 dollar ride or walk! It’s also easy for going downtown too.
The only complaint I had was room service. 120 minutes wait for what was meant to be a prawn cocktail, but was in fact 4 x cold prawns (shrimps) with a pot of ketchup. But considering the hotel was fab other that, it was a teeny glitch and I didn’t have to pay for the food as I was unhappy with it.
Overall, I cannot wait to revisit.
