Do yourself a solid, stay in a water facing room. If not a courtyard room on the resort side, you'll thank me later. I've stayed here about ten times in the past. Opal Cove has it worked out. What's the best thing about this place? The breakfast. The buffet breakfast has everything. Pastries, cereals, fruits, bacon, hash browns, eggs cooked...

Fabulous location, beach out the front, huge pool. Service was great especially in the restaurant. We had an excellent dinner and an adequate buffet breakfast. An egg station and an improvement to the coffee machine would be appreciated. The room was clean and large, but still has 80's touches including the bathroom. The curtains didn't cover the whole window, so...

Great facilities for all ages. Very clean rooms and excellent reception and service. Good value for money and plenty of entertainment. Free wi-fi was a hit too. Close to most facilities and excellent beach access.

Booked a night in this resort as a "treat" on the way back from Newcastle to Brisbane. It was advertised as absolute beachfront so we were excited to have a swim in the sea and hang out on the beach. Reception area was bland and deserted and the area inside reminded me of an RSL . The room was dated,...

We visited Opal Cove over the new year and were bitterly disappointed with our stay. We arrived early for check-in so went to the pool area for a swim and some lunch. There is no pool side service so I went into the building dripping wet to order from the restaurant. They would not bring the food to us at...

Opal Cove Resort is in a beautiful location, is very spacious and well laid out. The facilities are great (gym, spa, sauna, huge pool area complete with water slide), and it's a short walk to a beach. The Big Banana fun park is a short drive, as is Coffs Harbour with all its shopping/dining/attractions. Our room was lovely and very...
