Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We chose to stay in the Deluxe Spa Room for an evening away. The room was large and well appointed with the furnishings being very old world including a magnificant 4 poster canopy bed. The old world is not bad, the furnishings are in excellent condition and make the room very romantic. The only complaint about the room was that the hot water was not very hot, something that needs to be looked at by management. The resort itself is great with a number of restaurants and cafes on site providing a vast selection of styles and cuisines to choose from. There are also art and craft shops to wander through and its all in an Italian village theme. Free offstreet parking for hotel guests. Overall an enjoyable stay that would have been better with hotter water.

This is a great quirky stay. If it weren’t for the things I list below it would be 5 stars but can’t look past this place is overpriced because of its unique experience. Before going into the serious misgivings of this property, one must read this to understand they market the family rooms as having a “full” kitchen . THEY DO NOT HAVE A FULL KITCHEN…. There is no oven 1. It is one of the hottest parts of summer here and we couldn’t use the pool. The ladder was broken with very unsafe sharp plastic that could cause some serious harm. I advised the manager who at first didn’t want to even entertain my friendly smiling visit by not looking up from His computer and at first denying it was broken until I mentioned The hazard to people with the sharp plastic causing injury, only then did I get a raise of an eye and say he would get into it. Well left today and not address and pool Open to one and all to severely cut themselves 2. Spa is just a concrete box with water and some bubbles. There are no seats in spa and to enjoy it as a spa you would need to stand up in it 3. Newly renovated family rooms . Our shower door could barely open . Then the water ran all over the bathroom floor and not draining well as the drain had not been properly placed 4. Don’t shower at the same time as someone in an ajoining room as you loose ALL hot water 5. Quite a few cockroaches both big and German . I’m saying that cockroaches in many places but how about a proper Spray or provide insect killer 6. Bedroom ceiling fans would be very useful instead of having to keep Air con on to keep rooms cool during the night. Overall the experience was great. I completely understand people not liking those jobs but perhaps Peter as manager should seek another more appropriate job to his liking . Every interaction be it Email, phone and in person was met with disinterest and hostility . We would return but at a much better price point to reflect the above things mentioned . Note it is stair access only. There is a lift but only operated by staff and staff not always around The accommodation area is able to be accessed by all sorts visiting other areas of the complex so keep doors Locked and kept Safe The general access areas need a good clean Access to the beach is a short walk Accross the road The stair access to our room was incredibly unsafe at night with no lighting and loads of dusty handrails . This could again certainly lead to serious injury

Absolutely loved our stay at Ettalong Beach Tourist resort. The location was perfect, close to beach and fantastic cafes, so much to do within walking distance. The room was clean and spacious. The manager on the desk, Peter was so friendly and helpful. He was so welcoming in every way, great way to start our mini break away. Would recommend staying here.

Wow. This is definitely worth a visit. Its one of the most Quirkiest hotels we have stayed it but its much more than a hotel - it's an experience . Rooms were good value at the price we paid and you can spend an hour just exploring the buildings. Not the flashiest from the outside but don't let that fool you. Sunday markets downstairs fill every space.

Didn't even get there! Had called up for some assistance as booked for Jan 2023. The person on the phone (said his name was Gary) was extremely rude and arrogant, did not want to be of any assistance at all. When I asked if a manager was there that I could speak to he hun up and didn't pick up the phone again. From this experience I would definitely not recommend! Disgusting behaviour.

Our room was a good size, clean and beds were comfortable. Unfortunately the hot water wasn't all hot. There is a lift for those who have problems with stairs but it is operated by staff only and they are not always available and a wait may be necessary. When we stayed there was plenty of undercover parking.

We stayed here while having renovations done and while the bed was comfy, the bathroom fine and the basic facilities ok, there are a few things they could address that would have meant a better review if they had been implemented. The management did provide good advice on the building work and noise which was well handled in working hours. We weren’t impressed that the housekeeping service was only provided every 2nd day. For $180 a night we think a daily service is warranted. No toilet brush is not acceptable especially with no daily housekeeping. It is a convenient place with lots of good restaurants and cafes in the complex and nearby, beach is handy and parking was fine but I wonder what that would be like in busy periods.

From the moment you arrive you are torn as to what to do first. Movies, shop… or eat ? Soo many shops with great variety to explore. Fantastic ambience with plenty of culture. Many many quality restaurants with EXCELLENT food to choose from. You will be dining and feasting every night. And what’s great is you can stay at the motel and not have to drive anywhere. Highly recommended. Check it out for yourself.
