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.

The only downside to the facilities at this hotel, is that the sunbed around the pool are not the most comfortable to spend a few quiet hours reading during the day - take some sort of padding if wanting to relax and linger for a few hours here.

Stayed for business. A bit noisy as close to the restaurants, however, overall, lovely place to stay with excellent customer service. The parking is secure and free, which is a relief as some places charge up to $40 per day to park your car.

I was a little worried after reading recent reviews but we were given an excellent 1 bed unit.
Everything was spotless with good quality bedding and towels. The kichen was well equipped and the washer and dryer came in handy as we were there when there was a lot of rain so we were able to dry our clothes before we packed to fly home.
Staff were very helpful and there's secure parking. Sadly didn't get to use the pool due to torrential rain

We stayed in adjoining rooms 125 and 127 for a weeks stay during school holidays and were very disappointed with the room facilities. We have stayed as the Calypso twice, never again!! The resort is lovely however our room is Not geared for 6 people. This unit had a small bar fridge in 1 bed side and a smaller bar fridge in the king suite 127. We had problems with both fridges and the dishwasher did not clean properly. (Maintainance man said filters were fine). When we arrived we were told there was no ice on site. We had to buy a collar and ice daily to keep drinks and food cold. We lost food as the bigger fridge had termastate problems ( too hot then too cold) defrosting frozen items and then freezing things in fridge part. This for a family of 6!!!! On what planet!?!? We did love the ground floor access to the pool. Would suggest a locked screen as you had to go thru the resort each time to make sure doors were locked so not that convenient. The slide was in a state of disrepair while we were there with security tape and cladding. We were not advised about the slide or the lack of ic and small fridges. We will only stay in other Classic apartments in Coolangatta now. Willdefinately Not return to the Calypso.

My family and I booked Calypso Plaza in Coolangatta so the kids could enjoy the pool with the water slides. On our arrival we found out that the water slides were shut and in a state of collapse with a makeshift sharp edged barrier stopping the rocks from falling into the pool. We had booked this accommodation in July and at no point been notified of the closure and in fact were not even notified at check in! The spa didn't work either. I tried to talking to someone on the front desk and they said at least the pool is open!

There was no mention of this on the Oaks website and guests were kept in the dark so that they could keep our booking which I think is appalling.

We were happy to spend our $100 HOLIDAY DOLLARS at Calypso Oaks & support other local businesses in Coolangatta where the area is really suffering from lost tourism.

However given that the resort is 4 1/2 star, I was rather disappointed in the standard of the room. The room could've been cleaned better as the washing machine was covered in sand and bathroom door was dirty from lots of dirty hands. The furniture was rather tired & had a mismatch of colours & styles. The car park was not secure as there was an open pedestrian gate from the outside & no key access to drive out of the carpark. Not what I expected for the price & rating.

The location was great and had no trouble finding places to eat even though lots of places were closed due to the lockdown of the border.

We paid $369 per night over Xmas and got put into a street view room, 1 bedroom apartment. The room was extremely noisy from all the traffic on Griffith street. Ocean plaza resort next door, we’re offering 2 bedroom apartments with ocean views for 280 per night. We would of moved but Oaks Calypso has a strict cancellation policy. No refunds. Very upset. After speaking to other guests by the pool, they were all flabbergasted that we were paying that price. Never again. Will always stick to Ocean Plaza Reort

We stayed over the Christmas period with multi-generations and had two adjoining rooms with a shared entry. The rooms were spacious, clean, quiet and well-appointed. Staff are lovely and helpful. There's a life guard at the pool during scheduled times which is great if you have small children. There's lifts to all floors for easy access. Make sure you ask for a room with an accessible shower if this is required (our rooms all had showers over the baths). The property is located across the road from the beach and is very convenient to shops and surf clubs. Coolangatta is a terrific spot for a holiday - the beaches nearby are gorgeous and there's lots of scenic lookouts with views all the way to Surfers Paradise to the north, or Tweed Heads to the south. Highly recommend Oaks Calypso.

The hotel is a great place to stay, centrally located in Coolangatta, right across the road from the beach, and numerous other beaches within easy reach.

There is a full-sized Woolworths supermarket in the next block and plenty of cafés and restaurants close by (but we didn't use those much as the apartments have a full kitchen). They also have a washing machine and dryer, very handy for longer stays.

Unlike our previous visit, the wifi was broken this time and it seems it is an ongoing problem now. I would advise you check with the hotel re issue this before booking if you need it for work, or like watching Netflix etc.

The rooms are well soundproofed from external noise (normal hallway noise internally). The beds are really comfortable and my partner loved the slightly firm couch.

Good aircon and lighting, and excellent water pressure in the over-bath shower.

Other than the wifi issue it is great value for money, but the rooms could do with some touchups.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Calypso. It’s in a convenient location, the guests were all quiet and the room amenities were a winner for us. The room had everything we needed for a weeks holiday - good sized fridge, microwave, mini stove top, kitchen utensils, a safe and washer dryer made it a pleasant place to stay. The pool was nice and we always got a spot to sit.

Answer from DeniseM

Good question - they told us that it was going to be temporarily fixed (whatever that means) by the New Year so I would suggest you keep in contact with them. If the pool is not fixed I would make alternate arrangements if I was you because the pool is the main part of the Resort BUT you ARE just across the road from the beach. When we stayed there no one was working on it and it looked like it had been like this for some time. Good luck !
