Rooms are getting old and bathroom was stained and very worn. We were on the Gold Coast for a wedding and had asked in our booking for an early check in. Arrived and room was not ready. They said the would ask housekeeping to hurry the cleaning. 1.5 hours later still not ready. Many other families were getting checked in. Asked again and still no help. Had to use the bathroom to get ready. It was still an hour later we had our text that it was ready.

Dear NicoleThank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While I wish you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case that we fell short. Thank you for staying with us.

Resort is beautiful, food is over priced for the taste, ended up spending almost 2k to cater for my family to only eat a few bites.
