We purchased a grabone voucher but upgraded to a 2bedroom suite (2adults+3children) and boy was it worth the extra $.
SUITE 301:The view is fantastic - its literally the view you see in the advertising - right at the front of the hotel - overlooking the pool and out to the ocean. Simply spectacular. The room is HUGE - and very comfortable - with 2 toilets and one large spa bath / shower wet room.
FOOD: On our first night we went up to the hotel restaurant and the food was excellent - the menu a little limited (no childrens menu) but the steak was cooked to perfection!! Next mornings buffet breakfast was AMAZING - a wide range of pastries / cereals and hot food to choose from. STAFF: The staff were all very friendly - special mention to the bar tender and house keeping staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
POOL / GAME ROOM: In the literature it said the pool was solar heated but unfortunately it was ice cold - how ever the spa more than made up for it :) The games room was terrific - there was pool / foose ball / air hockey and table tennis which kept my family entertained for hours.
The Kingsgate was fantastic and I have already rebooked for next school holidays.
