Reviewed September 25, 2012

This was our second trip to Cable Beach Resort and unfortunately it was disappointing. Our room was located beside the adult swimming pool which clearly states at gate entry, no music, no smoking, no cell phones. While there, one woman occupied a lounge chair all day, every day with her music blaring continuely. Three people sat smoking cigars all afternoon and of course, cell phone conversations went on and on. There were staff present that could have politely told guests of the rules, but they chose to ignore it all. There was a loud party taking place in one of the rooms, plus a drunken guest two doors away having a major fight with his partner at 3am trying to bash the door down. Some of the clientele were definitely a different crowd than the year before, which was a lovely relaxing vacation with considerate guests. We chose to leave 5 nights early at great airfare expense. The rooms were fine, dining was good and staff were pleasant. Great need of public relation staff and security to address the problems present during our time there. Will not be returning anytime soon.

Room Tip: If just a couple, request a room overlooking adult pool on ground level and directly across the pool...

Stayed here for one night however stayed here for a week a couple of years ago. This time we stayed in a garden studio room. The room is set in the beautiful gardens which are wonderful. Personally I find it inconvenient to stay on the second level without an elevator, just makes it difficult to move bags. The rooms are nice however in the morning we were woken at 6am with banging which I think was people and kids on the balcony.
Staying here a few years ago we got one of the private villas with its own pool. This was wonderful service and really why we decided to stay here again. If you want a great trip I'd choose this option.
The restaurants are good. The Italian one is fantastic with amazing options. And another plus is there is a adults only area and pool.
One of the best spots in broome, worthwhile spending the money on a nice suite and make sure you get a picnic to watch the sunset on the beach!!

Broome,,,,cable beach club,,,,stay number 14,,,,but why? Sure enough there are other lovely options in Broome, particularly in the last 5 years, loads of new places to stay.....but they lack the "heart" of Broome "the simplicity" of Broome, the spirit of the Kimberley region, none have quite captured this like CBC. Sure enough a few years back this resort was lacking, enter Ron Sedon who has improved the rooms, gardens and grounds are spectacular again, but more importantly CBC has bought back that feeling of being special. Small but considerate touches to reward us for our loyalty were appreciated and enjoyed. Our boy is 6 , he has been to the club 6 times now, but has also visited Bali, Fiji, Hamilton island, cairns, Melbourne etc, etc,,,,but ask him where his Fave holiday destination is and he will ask for CBC every time! Forget the small stuff, go, relax, spend quality time together and create memories. Ps, Thai pearl, yummo, club restaurant, great value and 1st class. Would be 5 stars but you guys need an extra pool service person between 1.30 and 4.30 (while Thai is set up) just to make it perfect!

After 12 day 4wd tour we were looking forward to a peaceful relaxing 2 days. We had booked the resort through Discover West back in March. On arrival our first room allocation was fronted onto the family/children's pool which obviously not ideal as we had no children, so after much discussion (young lady was very pleasant) we were allocated new rooms. After arriving at the new room we were dismayed by the outlook, the car park! Not quite what we had envisaged. Another phone call back to reception and once again a room change was made. Hooray, a room looking over the adult pool. My concern is why allocate a room for a couple with no children to the family pool and why would you travel accross the other side of Australia to look at the car park? Considering we booked in March it is surprising room allocations are made the night before you arrive. My advice for any childless couples request room overlooking adult pool to avoid disappointment. Good points are close to beach, buffet breakfast, room facilities and very pleasant staff.

After a few stressful years I was looking for a place to get away and completely relax. Cable Beach Club was the perfect place. Hubby and I arrived at the tail end of the wet season in March and were fortunate to have 5 perfect days of sunshine. We had gone for a little luxury and booked a private villa. The excellent service began when we were met at Broome airport by our personal valet Jane who whisked us away to the resort in an airconditioned car. Check in was hassle free as we were taken to our villa by golf cart and checked in in the comfort of our room. Our villa was superb and spacious and and we were greeted with a fresh fruit platter and bottle of sparkling wine, and delicious canapes delivered each afternoon to our room. We particularly enjoyed having our own plunge pool although we spent a few afternoons lounging around the adult pool as well. Breakfast was served daily in the Sunset Bar and Grill and we found the staff always friendly and attentive. Afternoon cocktails to watch the spectacular sunsets followed by dinner in the same location was also a favorite. A highlight of our trip was dinner in the Club restaurant. Superb food wine and service and highly recommended. The resort grounds were beautiful and well maintained as were the pool areas. The tour desk staff were also very friendly and helpful and a sunset camel ride along Cable Beach is a must! I would recommend staying at this time of year (before peak season) if you are looking to avoid crowds as we were. We ventured into town for lunch one day and also to Matso's Brewery but in all honesty we could have spent the entire time never leaving the resort as our every whim was more than catered for. I have noticed several reviews mentioning the expense but everything in Broome is pricey and we were not looking for a budget holiday. Overall we loved the resort, the staff were friendly and always happy to help(in particular our valet Jane who also arranged late checkout for us on our last day as we had a late flight) and we can't wait to visit again...a 10/10 experience the whole way :)

The best resort in Broome. Excellent food and service (except for the guy with a bad attitude at the ocean pool) throughout ....fabulous Thai, delicious Italian and Nice breakfast each morning. Rooms well setup. Laundry and ice machine close at hand.

Room Tip: We have tried both garden and pool view rooms all good.

We have just spent a week at Cable Beach Resort - it was lovely. Not a cloud in the sky for a week and the resort was very comfortable. We had a basic room - it was huge! Nice little balcony looking over the gardens - although we spent most of our time by the pool or exploring the beach. All the facilities were very good and staff excellent - nothing was too much trouble. Food was great at Thai Pearl and also The Club Restaurant. That said, the Sunset Bar and Grill was also excellent. 4pm opens for a drink and snack watching the sun set every night - could never get sick of that!!!!! Town Bus takes you in and out of Broome - runs every half hour and also get a commentary for your $3.50!!! We have already checked on flights for next year!!!
