I stayed for one night at this resort. I wanted a relaxing stay on my own for a day before catching up with friends.
On arrival I was upgraded to a bigger room with a few to the golf course. I was also provided with internet access (400MB) for free with a $100 deposit. This was refunded to me upon return of the wireless 'dongle' upon checkout.
The staff at the restaurant catered to my lactose intolerance by making sure that dairy products weren't included in my meal. They also kindly provided me an alternative to dessert from what was on the menu, so I didn't miss out!
The dinner seafood buffet was ample and very well priced. As a solo traveler, I was given a 25% discount on lunch and dinner for being an Accor Advantage Club member. If you travel with 2 or more people, the discount increases to 50% off meals. Not bad!
The entrance and concierge staff were very helpful and friendly. Parking undercover is free.
The only down-side is that there isn't much around. You really do need a car to move around. Having said that, the hotel does provide a shuttle service to major shopping and entertainment for a short fee. You need to work around their schedule, though. If you have a car you do things at your own leisure.
I would have no hesitation booking here again for a relaxing getaway from the bustle and bustle in a nice, tropical environment not too far from Coolangatta.
