We stayed for 3 nights in a Coral Sea Bungalow and couldnt have asked for a better getaway. As stated in a previous review this resort isnt for the elderly/ disabled as some cabins do have quite a walk, and there is no ramp/ lift facilities however they do have a golf buggy that is used for collection/ running around etc.
The staff where friendly and faultless in their service, always prompt and on time. We had a seafood picnic hamper ordered to our room for lunch and found it to be great value.
The past comments on the pool are spot on and totally agree that if they where heated it would have just been icing on the cake!
The private beach is great and spent an evening down there with the full moon, snacks and champagne, You couldnt have done that at any other resort within the area.
Definately heading back!!!
