      the quiet and relaxation of the location.

      We enjoyed the pool area it was beautiful the way it wound around all of the rooms. I felt that he staff in the bistro area were a bit careless, the girl had a problem understanding the order of 2 x meals of lasagane, which was $30 then I gave her $50 and she gave me $3o back I explained to her it was wrong and she said "oh I was looking at the computer?" I hope she does not do that too often, then to top it off the lasagne was terrible it was like it had been heated that many times it was dry but we decided we would not eat there again. Sorrry to be critical of that but I feel these things are important when you are running a business. Thank you.

      Privacy. Car Parking space. Position to most amenities.

      Restaurant was a very bad experience. I know it is separately run, but can reflect on the hotel if customer didn't know otherwise. Cutlery was blunt. Both my and my wife's meals were under cooked, and her meal was passed off as something it was not.I had a very tough duck, which I ended up holding it in my hands to eat the flesh,as I could not cut it, and my wife was served chops instead of rack of lamb. We have never seen a rack without a rack before, and the size of the 3 individual chops we dont believe could have ever come off a rack.

      the shower head kept falling down the spa was very noisy

      The lagoon pool - best feature of the hotel

      My room was located near the carpark. I didn't get any views of the lagoon. At night the light in the carpark shined into my room & it was difficult to fall asleep. Also it was very noisey as I had the highway & carpark outside the room. Also I was away from my parents in room 27 and they were in room 244. My parents got a room near the lagoon so at night time they had to walk me back to ensure my safety.

    • Older travelers

      the easy access to the pool

      the entry into the pool from our swim out. I actually fell into the pool and have reptured my anterior crutiate ligament and require surgery to fix this problem. That first step is dangerous. I think it requires another step the minimise the depth of the 1st step.

    • Couple
      8.2

      I loved the swimming pool, was something different and very nice. The room was very nice also.

      I thought the resteraunt could have been a little nicer (more menu options). But this was not an issue as there was a lot of places to eat around the area.

    • Couple
      6.2

      Everything was fine other than the check in process, which was a shambles.

      Upon checking in at around 2.00pm, we filled out a form and were advised that we would have to provide $150 surety, which was not a problem per se. However, we had to transfer money into the appropriate account and then line up again. There were only two staff on reception, and all we had to do was provide out card, license and take our key. We were made to line up again, which this time took around 30 minutes as there were a large number of other guests who had arrived to check in. Consequently, we were made to run late for an engagement as a result of having to wait in line again. All the receptionist had to do was to call us forward and let everyone know that we were in the process of being served, rather than to make us wait again.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Very well presented and with very good service. Excellent desing of the swimming pool that makes the environment very pleasant.

      Possible improvement: better daily cleaning of the very comfortable rooms

    • Couple
      5.4

      The rooms were very nicely furnished and the pools were awesome.

      The check-in queue was far too long, it took over 30 mins to check in and the lady at the counter failed to mention that I was going to be charged a bond fee.

    • Couple

      cleaness

      security when you went for a swim, could not lock any of the sliding doors. you always had to stay nearby.
