Overnight stay summary:
- Excellent location: beach across the road, shops and restaurants all around you.
- Well sized/equipped room (only low point was the extremely soft bed).
- Pleasant staff.
- Nice pool (awesome for kids) with PLENTY of lounges...only comment on the spa is that there was never enough room for me to get in it!
- 3 lifts, 1 worked.
While we enjoyed our stay here, I do think the price we paid was slightly excessive ($150/night (1 bed apartment)/no breakfast). I think it's also worth pointing out that Calypso is catered to families with young kids - If you are a younger couple looking for a romantic getaway (which was the point of our stay) this may not be the place for you.
When you compare Coolangatta to other parts of the GC, it can be a little boring. However you can easily fill a night or two there. There are plenty of excellent places to eat (we had dinner at O-Sushi and weren't dissapointed) and if you are looking for a place to have a few drinks, skip the Cooly Hotel (unless you enjoy toilet smells and a lousy atmosphere). Instead, head up to the Surf Life Saving Club - best view, excellent staff and a relaxed vibe. We only stayed for an entre and a couple of drinks but from what we saw the mains look great too!
