We were really looking forward to arriving at the Coral Sea Resort, after having spent a great week on the Thomson Celebration Cruise ship, and were excited when we arrived. Soon after we began to settle into our very nice room to have a cup of tea and relax, after unpacking, there was very loud drilling and banging from below and we soon realised that there was extensive building work going on. We went to reception and asked if we could be moved to a quieter room and a couple of hours later we were kindly given another room on the other side of the resort, but plenty of noise going on there too. One of the reps said that the work would only be between 9am and 5 pm, fine if you are up and out on activities all day, but this was meant to be a peaceful week for us, in which we could partly enjoy being in our room and sitting on our balcony, reading, relaxing, and doing not much, whenever we felt like it, before getting home and back to work. So we were very disappointed.
Later we found out that we should have been informed of the renovations before we left home so that we could be moved to another hotel if we wished, so a breakdown in communications evidently.
Now, we are not complainers, have backpacked extensively in India and have stayed in all manner of lodgings, but on a short package holiday I do feel guests should know of building disruption, if they are hoping for relaxation in their room which is why I am doing this review.
Apart from this, the hotel is staffed by really friendly, helpful, hardworking people, the beach and sea/lagoon is absolutely beautiful and pristine, with crystal clear waters in which there are myriads of small fish, the hotel is very quiet at night, and we found the food very good. Once all the renovations are done, it will, I'm sure, be the hotel that everyone else is raving about!
