Consider other options for this price range

Three years ago this hotel was a very nice hotel. However the standard has the gradually declining. This is our third trip to TringoBlu and this will be the last one. The service standards has significantly dropped. The rooms has deteriated. Rooms can be cleaner and the belconey was never cleaned during our four day stay During checkin, they agreed for a $100 AU upgrade, but charged US$ and refused to fix the issue.

Relaxing place to stay

Pros: The pool Breakfast buffet Restaurant staff very friendly Beach was great
Cons: Dinner buffet could have better selection Some games could be offered eg carrum or chess at no extra charge
Beautiful beach and nice pool. As a family of 6 we enjoyed the pool most of all. It would be lovely if they had interconnecting rooms or rooms for families, but we managed to get two rooms side by side. The breakfast buffet was nice, kids had many things to choose from. We had been travelling a lot so we did decide to stay at the hotel and enjoy the beach and pool. One night we paid extra for the buffet. Not a great selection but enough. Buffet is quite expensive for what you get. The other night we ate at their cafe the crab and we enjoyed that more. Food is pricey here but so is everything unless you go into Trinco town and eat local. Staff are friendly and more than happy to help. Overall it was a great mini break that the family needed.
