“Unacceptable”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2010

Well what can I say you do get what you pay for but when the staff member behind the counter says this to you....can I say anymore . Basically also told thats what you get when you book with online booking places, so they say their worst rooms. Unfortuantely I wasnt able to get anything else to book and the pics that they had made it look sort of ok. Fake grass on the walkways that wasnt even clean, restaurant facility not open and no notice of this when booking. Carparks way too small for a large car. entrance to room was a sliding door that was hard to open and you had a awkward step up into it over the tracks. Bathroom so small that you could sit on the toilet and rest your arms on the sink. I could go on about the staffs attitiude but I think you should get the idea that it wasnt a pleasant stay there.....thankfully it was only for 2 nights. Oh and yes the bed was advertised as a Queen and it was a double.

We traded a time-share for the Don Pancho Beach Resort in Bargara, Queensland. Our acomodations were a studio apartment. Small but a great ocean view room - just a short walk down to the beach, which had a added feature of a rock-enclosed swimming area that was protected from the strong surf and undercurrents. Best of all was the on-site Casablanca (wine and dine) Restaurant. Prices were reasonable and food top quality. The lemon meringue pie (baked by Kristen's aunt) was the best we've ever tasted.
