The whole Ayers Rock resort feels like a giant tourist trap, and due to its monopoly position (the only accomodation near Uluru) you feel exploited as the inflated prices are not matched with quality accomodation. The smallest Emu Walk apartments have one bedroom and one sofa bed but both offer terrible comfort with old and worn matresses. Because the bathroom is en-suite it is impractical to put your kids in te main bedroom, but if they sleep in the lounge it means you will go to bed at the same time as them. The kitchen corner is OK with a big fridge.

Stayed with friends for two nights. Rooms were side by side and they were satisfactory. Large and what we needed. Very handy to shops and all amenities. Much better than staying at the pub across the way near servo which was very noisy and more for young groups.Would recommend. Pricey for what you get but everything is in Ayers Rock(Fuel is about $2.17, bottle shop is extremely expensive, so bring some with you) Large fridge and kitchen, big bedroom with ensuite and comfy lounge

Room Tip: Handy to everything. IGA store food prices ok but bring your own alchohol

We hated the Disney-style feel of the 'resort', but they have you over a barrel here, it being a monopoly. That said, we thought the Emu Walk Apts represented the best value of this price bracket. The apts were roomy & well equipped, with decent crockery, pans and cooking implements in the kitchen. There was no oven but there was a microwave and a 4 plate hob. Tea, coffee and milk were provided, and a jug of cold water in the fridge (a nice touch). The air con was on when we checked in (also a nice touch). The bed was comfortable.

The apartment as a whole was a bit tired - really, they could spend a bit of their vast profits on doing the place up a bit. There were stains on the carpets and the melamine wardrobes were showing their age. The TV was not a flat screen and we could only get one (US)channel. The radio channels available were a bit limited and there was no ipod connection on the stereo (I only mention this as these things have been available everywhere else we have been!).

The restaurants at Yulara are very expensive, but we cooked in one night (the supermarket is VERY well stocked - and yes, more expensive than elsewhere in Oz but they do have to import everything) and ate from the Ayers Wok (oh dear) takeaway the other night. Buying booze is a nightmare - you have to get it from the bottle shop at the Outback Pioneer Hotel and there are lots of restrictions about when you may buy it and how much you may buy. None of this is explained at check in... but apparently the area is a 'dry community' and only resort guests may purchase alcohol. Fair enough, but they need to be clearer about these things in their promo literature and on site.

Yes we agree, Emu Walk apartments are a little overpriced and a little shabby and can be a very long walk to reception / the pool etc but overall we felt that they met our expectations. For the price we paid for the 2BR apartment, I would have been expecting something flash if I had not been reading Tripadvisor though! The apartment was serviced daily by a 'flash mob' of about 5 room attendants who were in and out in no time at all. I was surprised that there was no washing machine available in the apartment, although there is one somewhere in the resort. No dishwasher either.

We were pleasantly surprised with the prices throughout the shops, restaurants and in particular the IGA supermarket. (Kings Canyon preceded this visit, with grocery prices that need to be seen to be believed). We spent 3 nights here and felt that was the right amount of time.

We were very happy with our accommodation unlike many of the other reviewers. Although tired looking on the outside, the inside was haven. Two bedroom split level apartment, all mod cons it may have been recently renovated, inside everything was clean and new and shiny and cool. When we arrived with our family of four we had two rooms one with a queen and one with a king, but we were able to unzip the king into two singles and our two teenage boys were happy they didn't have to share a bed. Housekeeping is quick and courteous - any requests we made were quickly responded to, even at 10pm in the evening. Beds were comfy, kitchen well equipped with new crockery, cutlery and the like. Comfy lounge with digital LCD TV. Agree with the rest of the reviewers about expensive room rate and restaurants, but in this remote location it's sort of what you expect. Great place to come back to after a hot day tramping around the desert and the rocks. Appreciated the town square which we were close to, where we could zip out and buy the odd thing or two, milk, cereal and the like, I didn't think the prices were too over the top. The grocery store appeared to have a full range of groceries, even meat. There is even a takeaway Asian place in the town square - $15 all meals, similar prices to the big cities. You can save money here if you try.

Room Tip: Try to get room close to the Town Square and on ground level
