sunset beach - fabulous spot ! kids loved the lagoon - safe mooring for the boat

Beautiful surroundings and possibly the best beaches on Earth, but more of a family destination than a romantic getaway. Food options limited - breakfast was either a standard buffet or toasted sandwiches/wraps. Efforts are being made to refurbish the facilities too which is great to see.

Full of surprised - but not all of the good kind!
Full of surprises & not the good kind! No trolleys available in car park, despite return bays for them. No trolleys were to be found upon arrival which meant a long walk with multiple bags to our room in 35 degree heat. No mention prior to arrival that BYO ALCOHOL IS PROHIBITED and that eski's will be searched! (Which we saw no evidence of). A $20 fee for eskies (half the size of some suitcases) was being inconsistently and randomly applied. Hard to penalise people for bringing their own food when they'e staying in self-contained accommodation that supplies cooking utensils! Rubbish bins in our room were full and not emptied, despite sign saying a $50 fine applied if not emptied yourselves and our bin had been used for sand castle making and was full of sand. There were no towels in our room and we wondered if the linen had even been changed! Oh, and did I mention the ants? Nobody abides by rules of not riding bikes on the boardwalks, and we didn't appreciate the idiot with the DRONE who was flying around spying on people! (They need signs about this as it's illegal!). Bike hire for guests is expensive ($20/day or $45 for 3, per person) and is essential to get around unless you love walking. BYO beach towels because they only provide them with a $10 cash deposit per towel, that's after you waste half an hour looking for them and end up asking the bar staff. That aside, it is a very relaxing place and we enjoyed our stay, but it seriously needs better management!

Beds king singles joined to make a king were like lying on slab of concrete had issues with regard to getting a meal . I think if you are going to book into the hotel you should be given priority access to dining over other guest to the resort train should run a more frequent service
