We first stayed here 20 years ago. It was a great place to stay. We stayed here last about five years ago and the room was quite tired. During our latest stay, we had a wonderful room. Would certainly stay again.

The staff at reception are fantastic, they go out of their way to be of assistance -- a big thank you! The resort is tired - our room was large but needed a refurb. As the resort is a strata structure no cohesion evident. We booked in Marc and were not told that most of the facilities were closed and only some available due to the cost of satisfying Covid requirements.

Very friendly staff (thanks Anissa) and the property is a huge welcoming maze of immaculately groomed gardens and golf courses, with walks throughout amongst the trees and the beaches that kill a few hours. Extremely COVID friendly and not intrusive. It's in a great location and our loaggon view room was enormous but dated however very comfortable. Could do with modernisation, but at $175 a night it was very well priced. Food was standard pub fare in taste and price, no more, but staff were attentive and the surroundings to eat were lovely. Happy hour had great priced drinks that was fun. Pool area nice too. There was an internet 'problem' while we were there (ie no internet) which was frustrating, so hopefully that revolves soon. All in all, we discussed the property while strolling on the beach, and would return for a few more days next time, with a rental car to explore the Coffs region again, which is on your doorstep.

The resort is situated just 5 mins from Coffs, and a 5 minute walk down a track to the little beach. The beach was not patrolled when we were there. Of all the resorts we saw (and we went to most of them) this one has plenty of space and everything is an easy walk away. Staff could not have been any more helpful. This hotel was built some time ago, and some of the rooms are undergoing refurbishment. We stayed in one of the older rooms, our friends in one of the newer. There was not a lot of difference really, none of our furniture was broken or discoloured, just a bit worn., so for us no problems. Bed was good, bathroom quite large, the shower is over the spa bath, which may pose a problem for some people. This is usually a problem for me, but this bath was quite low, so again not an issue. Kitchen had all we needed except for a non stick frypan, living room was plenty big enough and the airconditioner was pretty quiet. So all in all we were happy with the room which had a view of the gardens. The grounds are extensive and very well kept, with a golf course. Covid restrictions have caused a few issues with access to everything, as noted by other reviews. The restaurant has a limited menu, but everything we had there was good, and the setting is lovely even just for drinks at happy hour. Coffs is 5 minutes away if you want a more up-market restaurant. If you are looking for a 5 star up market hotel experience, this is not it. This holiday is a great laid back relaxation time. We had one of those holidays were you get a tan by the pool, eat prawns from the fishermans co-op, play cards all night and feel lazy! Had a great time and we will be back.

When we booked and when we checked in we were not told the main lap pool would be closed for the foreseeable future, because they can’t provide a staff member to check sign ins. The gym has restricted access as well, you need to collect and return a key to reception which is over 200 metres away in another building. Even with these restrictions the sauna and spa can not be booked or accessed. There is always something under repair or no longer available at this resort.
