Stopped for lunch with the family, including my two young nephews, which wasn't a problem for the staff. Food was amazing and good value for money! Feel of the bar area very relaxed and staff were excellent! We will certainly visit again and will probably stop also!

I hope that next time you have a chance to stay for dinner and breakfast too!...

My boyfriend and I went to Mission Beach Saturday night for a Romantic getaway. Our $190 room was very average with the pool right out the front of our window, so everyone could see into our room. The wifi did not work at all on my phone! Beach view, beautiful. Breakfast good. Staff friendly and helpful.

Loved our little rainforest getaway. It turned out to be better than the rooms on the waterfront for one big reason. It was so nice and quiet! We had the pool all to ourselves! Visiting the other pool, there were so many people and quite noisy too. The rainforest pool was nice and shady too if you are prone to...

Situated on the beach, Dunk Island in the background, we had a party of 16 for dinner. The menu was extensive and varied, with local and Australian foods featuring. I had crocodile wontons as an entree: lovely, light and crispy. My colleagues on my table raved about their scallops melting in the mouth! I couldn't go past the Atlantic salmon...

We stayed in the rainforest rooms, which were just ok. Next time we'd like to stay in a beachfront room. The cocktail bar menu offers a great variety of drinks. However, our Piñas Coladas and our friend's Mango Daiquiri were disappointing as they were very watery. The buffet breakfast was good, though. The hotel is a few steps from the...

Very pleasant modern hotel with stunning views over the gardens to the beach and the ocean. Breakfast was basic but okay. Dinner in the restaurant was acceptable. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful. This is a great location as its just a short stroll into Mission Beach via a beach front path. A very relaxing place.
