Opal Cove had a lovely pool and the surrounds were good. Rooms were comfortable but small. On arrival our room had a terrible smell, and we had to ask the staff to address the problem, which took overnight to subside.Was overpriced for what was included in the room size.

The whole place is devoid of any appeal at all and is more likened to a cheap motel except it isn’t cheap!

Our ocean view room was beautiful, we could easily see whales splashing about, the bed was really hard which was a shame, but the staff were super friendly and helpful, we will definitely stay there again.
