The resort was nice. Room was clean, but the doors are so thin that you can hear the conversations of every person who walks past which was very frequent between 7pm-10pm. It was so loud they sound like theyre in your room. Woke us up and woke up our baby several times. But overall it was a nice stay. Staff very nice.

The reception staff were super unhelpful - I came from trying to access my family up in Lismore and turned to come back to Sydney and asked to borrow an iPhone plug. They said it was against policy due to corruption. I explained my circumstances and they still said they don’t loan them out. The room smelled like damp. Thank goodness for Drew in the restaurant who was an amazing host. But won’t be returning.
