Stayed for 3 nights recently and all was of a high standard. Room was clean and comfortable with free in room cable internet. Buffet breakfast is great and good value (discounted if you pre-book). Evening meals are also of a high standard but pricey.

Stayed only 1 night on the way through to cairns. The room was clean and had everything we needed, was a great price. The pool looked really nice as did the restaurant. Although we didn't use either. We were able to walk (15 mins)to the main part of town for dinner. Thanks for a great stay.

Stayed 2 nights at Coral Cay Resort on the southern side of Mackay. Room was a good size, clean and well appointed. Staff were pleasant and efficient. Although located on the highway, there was no traffic noise as I was at the rear. The property wasn't very busy but there was a little noise from other guests. Seems they were... More

Didn't try the restaurant as we ate at the hotel across the road but all other aspects of the stay was acceptable. It was a little noisy but I expect that was from other guests and this was outside of the operators control. Great location for business.

We stayed at the Coral Cay, mainly because of the good restaurant reviews. We enjoy a buffet breakfast and the convenience of not having to go out for dinner. There are many accommodation types to choose from in Mackay, and all within a close proximity as the town is not large. The 2 bedroom apartment was clean and functional, and... More

I drove along Nebo road, with so many motels to choose from - I got very lucky! This motel has been refurbished, the room was spotless and spacious.

The service was super friendly especially at the front desk, and the rooms immaculate. The lagoon pool was well kept and very relaxing too. A beautiful place to stay and in a great destination. The pancakes are amazing.
