I had a few reservations after reading some of the reviews of the regular rooms but after checking in (room 13 - lucky for us) I really thought they'd given us a refurbished room. The paint on the walls was spotless, the tiles in the bathroom looked new, the bed linen was crisp and the shower curtain was spotless. In short, it looked refurbished. But apparently not. So I don't understand some of the reviews of the Resort Rooms. Room 13 is fine.
The layout reminded me more of a motor lodge than a resort. You can't fault the location overlooking the beach. Our room backed into the enclosed swimming pool area. One queen size bed and one single bed. A small table. Fridge with mini bar (good prices: A$20 for a bottle of wine). Small shower room. All very clean and water was hot.
We stayed on a Sunday night arriving about 6.30pm. Not busy and they charged us A$100 for the night. We didn't eat so cannot comment on the food. The receptionist found us a brewery on the waterfront that was open later in the evening so we went there.
I'm not sure how the room would be during the day for noise from the pool when the hotel is busy but on a Sunday night it was fine.
