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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

On arrival the staff make you feel welcome, rooms are fabulous, if you like a resort vibe, this is the place to be. Everything about this place is incredible.

Thanks Q1 Resort and Spa for a great experience. We were pleasantly surprised to get a room upgrade and gifts for the kids upon check-in. The room was amazing and well maintained. The kids loved the pool and easy walking access to Cavill Ave and beach. The only negative I can think of is no EV charging in the included free underground parking. Great overall experience and we would visit again/recommend to friends/family.

We stayed for 6 nights in January 2024 . Room was comfortable, location and views fantastic. We stayed on level 20 in a 1 bedroom family spa unit which was plenty of room for our family of four 2 Adults and 2 young teenage children. A few improvements need to be addressed by management. Our room was not cleaned until between 4-5pm every day during our stay which is not good enough when being charged high season holiday rates and when asking staff to clean earlier there only excuse was there is not enough staff. Management needs to employ more staff to cater for high season as they are still charging high season prices! Every night our airconditioner was automatically turned off which made our room very hot and woke us up very early each day, I called reception to send someone from maintenance to discuss but never saw anyone. Not enough pool deck chairs but plenty of room to add at least 25 more around the pool areas.

A zoo would’ve been quieter and more comfortable. Service is absolutely horrible, you need to get towels for the pool at reception which is nowhere near and the whole family needs to go as it’s 1 per person. If you do manage to get a towel, hopefully you’ll get at least 1 chair for the family if not you just drop your stuff off near the bbq and sun bake near there. There is no room service and to get food you need to go outside of the complex. Staff are RUDE!!!!!!! And if you think the manager will get back to you, think again!!! They’ll send the poor duty person who cannot do much. We had a 2 bedroom on level 10 with thin walls and half way through the trip we had to buy ear plugs to sleep!!!!!!!!!! The road noise is unbelievable and you could hear the person walking bye downstairs breath. No double glazing and no blockout curtains. We paid $900 a night. It isn’t worth $300 per night. Caravan park would’ve been better
