I loved the layout and how close to the beach and quiet it was. Unfortunately the lounge in our room was so uncomfortable that we could not sit on it and watch TV without slowly sliding off. Therefore I spend a lot of time lying in bed or forced to stay outside and explore.

Being able to walk directly onto the beach without crossing a road etc without having to wear shoes. Unfortunately we had to shut doors and windows to keep out the smell of cigarette smoke from other units. Being hot we then had to put on the airconditioning for our comfort, when we could have had fresh breezes from outside. Shower over spa bath is not good for older guests. This needs to be known before people make bookings.

It had been 23 years since we stayed at GSS resort it hasn't changed a lot. The girl on front reception was lovely, friendly and helpful on checkin and departure. Our room was pretty good, 2nd floor 159, climb the stairs. What we weren't happy about was walking down the stairs at night, the sensor light only came on when near bottom of the staircase and when we came back 11pm no light outside to be able to put the key in the door to unlock it..The room was clean just a few cobwebs on the ceiling, dusty sidetables and the last lot must have burnt eggs because the smell was still in the room. No Netflix or Foxtel, had to watch commercial tv, that was painful lol. The bed was comfy but the pillows weren't that great and lappool was so clean and best way to end our holiday.

The views were amazing and the bed was very comfortble but the cleaning wasn't the best. The spa bath had mould in the grout and around the jets.
