I was so extremely impressed with how lovely, modern, clean and well laid out the rooms at Coral Kay Resort were. The staff were absolutely lovely and there is a very thoughtful collection of items and toiletries that can be purchased from reception which I really appreciated. It is pet friendly accomodation and there are lots of little spots to toilet your pet, all completely clean and with bibs provided. This is a fantastic place to stay on your travels with family (2 and 4 legged).

Chose this motel due to its reviews and boy was that a mistake, upon arrival receptionist was to busy to explain anything about the motel and what was on offer and failed to supply the voucher for booking from their website. When we entered the room there was a musty smell and on further inspection found the room to be full of dust on most surfaces, this was surprising as they were spruiking their in-depth Covid plan. That evening while making coffee it was noticed that the cups were stained and appeared to have been poorly washed as to were the wine glasses. When retrieving the milk from the fridge it was also discovered there was mold growing on the shelves and on other surfaces. We went for breakfast in the morning to find the restaurant closed, upon further enquiry we were told that we had to order the night before and it would be sent to the room. Just another item the resort staff failed to tell us about. After spending most of the day out the following day we returned to a room that was not made up, when we enquired whether the room was going to be serviced we were informed that we needed to request that service. When you are paying for a 4 star room one would expect this as a normal service. The manager arrived at our room to explain that all these issues were because of the virus, I fail to see how any of the poor cleaning, poor communication or failure to deliver on their promotion. So much for their Covid plan.

Hi Peter, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience and please accept our sincere apologies that your stay was less than terrific. We actively listen to guest reviews and your feedback has been shared with the whole team for immediate improvements. Our Covid plan has been in place since March and is regularly reviewed by the management team. Feedback over the past few months has overwhelmingly been positive however we recognise that your room did not meet the high standards our team strives for. Our aim has been to be as transparent as possible with our guests on what services are open, especially as Queensland eases restrictions. Our swimming pool is now open and our restaurant is open for dinner Sunday - Thursday and pre-ordered room service breakfast Monday - Friday. This is communicated via our website and the team supply the breakfast and dinner menus during check-in. We will review this process. The management team at Coral Cay Mackay have been working hard over the past few months to ensure our high standards are maintained and we are now growing the number of staff working each day to ensure each and every guest experiences the customer service, high standards of cleanliness and terrific location we are known for. Thank you again for your review Peter and please reach out to the team directly when you are next booking so we can make up for the shortfalls you experienced. Jess - Guest Experience Manager

Stayed here for a few days over Christmas. Well priced room. Clean and tidy. Little disappointed, about the dog next door barking all night, especially when trying to sleep for long 24 hour drive home. Also didn’t realise it was directly under the flight path of the planes landing at airport - thankfully this is at reasonable hours. As it was Christmas, there was no room servicing while we were there and reception was closed. But that was ok. We only saw staff at beginning of our stay, and when I booked the room. They were very accommodating, helpful and pleasant to deal with. Still, a nice place to stay and conveniently close to town.
