My husband and I just got married on Friday, the 09/11/2012, and was very impressed with the level of service the hotel had to offer! The bride and groom room was very spacious, and overlooking the pool on a peaceful setting.
All our guests was very happy with the food (3 Course meal) that was served, and the staff were very attentive and pleasant to deal with! The hotel also have a play area for those who have little children!!
A very big thank you to the Event's Coordinator - Rebecca King, for her help in making our speacial day a success! Thank you for your wonderful assistance from the start of the dealings to finish! The entire event was breeze!
And speacial thanks to Anne from Ideas in Bloom for making the table arrangements perfect for the day!
I would definately recommend this hotel for anyone looking for venues for their upcoming wedding!
Cheers
Mere and Peter

Definately a great place to stay -we stayed in room 103 which was fantastic -huge living area, fantastic bedroom with great mattress and massive bathroom with spa bath for two.- all modernish with good furnishings- our 103 was just outside the adult pool with our own car park area. The restaurant was close to fine dining with meals presented well and tasty - many thanks to our efficient waitress Melanie- we had two evening meals both 3 courses -with not a fault detected!! Breakfast buffet however was average compared with other Accor hotels. The only downside was the location -just a bit too far to walk anywhere especially the beach-but all within a very short drive. Geringong is a very friendly town and also very close to Kiama which is a lot more touristy with the blow hole and more restaurants. We also travelled to Wollongong one night 30mins away to dine on the sunday night seafood buffet at the Novotel Northbeach -just love it. Forgot to mention that happy hour at the hotel was also good value-Overall yes I would go back to Geringong by the Sea but not for too long a stay because of the need to drive to do things.

stayed for 2 nights fri/sat with the scoopon voucher. Room size was great, but the carpet was dirty and the utensils and pots was dirty, but I just cleaned it first before I used it.

had tennis court, play station for the kids, full kitchen.

We dined in at the restaurant on Friday night it was yummy, price was a little bit pricey but nothing unusual for a restaurant, was worth it. we had buffet breakfast in the same restaurant daily was delicious.

The resort didn't really have any view, we had the tennis court view. but that was ok with us. the pool looked dirty so we never went for a swim.

overall it was a great place, probably wouldn't pay full price for it.

I have stayed here on 2 occasions, once with a boyfriend and once with my sister. IT is an older venus but it has been really well upgraded.

This hotel is immaculately clean and well maintained! The bedding is soft and inviting, as are the towels!! The bathroom and shower are always very clean, which i find is how i often judge a plea, as this is important to me.

The included breakfast was lovely and the staff i met very helpful.

We stayed one night on our way up the coast and booked online, $129 with breakfast. It was excellent value, the room was clean, large and comfortable with an L-shaped lounge, desk, plenty of storage. There was some noise from traffic and neighbours, which you overlook. The breakfast was of a high standard although staff were scarce and we seated ourselves after waiting ages, but it was a buffet so didn't matter.

We stayed 3 nights at the Mecure Resort Gerringong and enjoyed our stay very much. We chose to have dinner on the Monday night, and were very plesantly surprised - it was delicious!! Breakfast each morning was plentiful and most enjoyable too. Our room was lovely and large, however the carpet in the room was very stained, and there was trouble with the TV reception (apparantely these are going to be replaced - on booking originally, we were told that the problem had been fixed, but obviously not by the time we arrived).
We were most impressed by how very polite and helpful the staff were, especially, the young waitress at breakfast each morning!

We had high hopes for this place - the photos looked inviting and most importantly it boasted a kids' club for our little one - however the reality fell far short of expectations.

While the rooms are not bad, they are also not that cheap - the layout is like a tarted up motel, which is what it was. The pool in the photo looks inviting but was not open to us as chlorine levels were unacceptable (not great for a key holiday period in January). We were told it would be open that afternoon but of course that did not happen. The rather rude behind the desk directed us the the "other" pool behind the place - small, pebblecrete - just awful and too few chairs to accom the people.

Her rudeness was compensated by the lovely pool maintenance guy who brought us extra chairs etc and tried to help in any way he could.

The other big issue was the "kids club" - we chose it for that reason as we have a little girl. I rang up to make sure it was running and was assured yes there were 12 kids there the night before. My fault I guess for not realising the previous night was New Years Eve! When we arrived the kids club was deserted. We were told it operated "on demand" so we could have placed her in there, by herself, for a hefty fee - terribly disappointing and of course we did not do that.

A very over rated place, rude staff, under maintained, not cheap, not near anything - have to drive everywhere- really is a glorified motel - will never go back!
