Still a lovely location......
I was saddened to see the change in the resort since I was last there. I used to visit 2-3 times per year but haven’t been there for nearly 6 years. It used to be a real 4-5 star now the venue I would only score a 3. There was only limited staff, but there seemed to be more people there selling Ramada shares. And it’s no longer serviced. The pool, spa area and the wonderful location are still the highlights of the trip.

Views were amazing from our Level 8 Deluxe 2 bedroom apartment. It almost felt like a 270 degree views. We had a wonderful 2 night stay and definitely will be back.

Lovely Shoal Bay
Enjoyed our stay at this resort, the location is wonderful. Some of the common facilities were rather tired: tiles coming off the spa pool, jets just frothed the water, water pooled on tiled outdoor area. However, our room was nice, clean and would have been comfortable if the bed hadn't been extremely hard (a bit like lying on softly carpeted floor)
