We booked this because it was one of the few places in Byron providing overnight accommodation (most places have a minimum of 2 nights) which is what we were looking for. We had a motel room and while at nearly $200/night will buy you something quite nice in many places, here it's just a basic, reasonably appointed room. The pluses in the room were: microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle (we only used the kettle but still good to have these if you're staying a few nights), large 32inch plasma TV (again if you're staying a few nights might be nice to have a night in watching movies), large, clean and fairly modern bathroom. The room minuses were: bed was rather lumpy (but often the case in these kinds of places), all the crockery/cutlery was dirty, there was a very strong and slightly off-putting floral smell - carpet deodorizer?
The resort features some good amenities - tennis court, pool, outside spa (tepid not hot), and something called a relaxation room with a heated spa and sauna (although apparently you need to book time in here).
Location: good - it seems quite far from the town center initially but it really isn't - less than a 10min stroll to the main hub.
Service: was pretty poor to be honest, when we arrived the woman on duty just walked up to the counter and said hello (no welcome or anything), as she was processing our room, my partner requested if possible, for us to be placed away from the street side and she just completely ignored him?! When she handed our key and told us where to go, she provided no information on the resorts features and amenities - we found these by ourselves which we thought was a bit odd. As it turned out we did have a quiet room so that was good, but a little more interaction would have been nice! Still I guess you're not paying for the service.
