Great location. Accommodation is very clean, fresh and lovely. Food in restaurant is pretty good. Reception area, restaurant and grounds need renovating/ tidy up.

We chose Diamond Island for our Golden Wedding Anniversary as something special as it was rated @ 4.5 stars. While there are some lovely appointments within our suite, it was shabby with very poor workmanship apparent in the bathroom. The exhaust fans are covered in dust, no telephone connection from our suite to reception, a note taped above the washing up sink saying a fine of $35 would be applied if dishes were not washed; and there was a singular lack of staff. No cleaning staff anywhere and rooms only cleaned every 3 days. We enjoyed our stay, but it simply was not worth $300/night!

Very cheap fixtures fittings and furniture. Extremely lack of utensils. Very poor tradesman works around the unit. Paint coming off skirting boards. Bed was hard as a rock. Pillows the same. Only good thing was the friendly and professional service from the gentlemen at the front desk. And the location is magnificent!!

Good location and close to the beach. Sofa bed didn’t come with any sheets or bedding and had to call reception. King bed really uncomfortable and pillows way too high and couldn’t sleep on at all.
