Staff were very friendly. Bad experience with the food. Went into the Stringray Bar and ordered a burger. It was a size of a Choc chip cookie and all it had on it was cheese and mustard. For $15 that's so cheeky. Where's the lettuce, tomato, beetroot, pineapple? At least put something on it. The waiter was embarrassed to serve it. The bacon and egg roll for breakfast was mouldy and was replaced for another. For the price of the rooms, I expected a lot more. Very small and basic. Sorry won't be back.

Close to the beach with best breakfast buffet ever

Pros: Location, facilities and breakfast buffet.
We stayed just the one night but were impressed by the location, staff and facilities. I walked my seven year old to the beach and put our towels too close to the water line. They ended up sodden, along with our Birkenstocks. We were able to clean off at the pool, grab some fresh towels and purchase some trendy thongs from the gift shop. As a family we have stayed in loads of hotels and I must say this breakfast buffet is something special. I don't want to ruin the surprises, but if you are travelling with a little human they will be very happy indeed as will you.

Great design Hotel

QT has a retro design which really stands out. The room is big and has lots of nice little design elements. Pool is a bit small but very close to the beach. Staff was helpful and accommodating. We would love to stay here again
