First impressions were really friendly as reception gave us good information via email before arrival as well as booking us a brilliant trip out to the reef with Posieden tours, and we got a 5% discount as we were staying there. The hotel rate also included parking in the underground car park and a basic breakfast. We only did this one day but it seemed ok, with tea coffee, cereals and bread for toasting. A bit of a bonus if you're on a budget!
The room was well equipped and spacious with a large balcony over looking the pool. At the time of our visit the exchange rate was appalling and we found getting food in was a cheaper option as the kitchen had plenty of stuff.
Alternatively you are just a 2 minute drive into the main town which is lovely to walk around or eat out. There are also plenty of options for breakfast as well as a good sized Coles for anything else you need.
The beach is lovely to walk in the evening and loads of people head down when it's cooler before spending the evening in town.
The only critics we has was that the floor was really dirty. Walking around bare footed made your feet black.....a good mop between guests wouldn't go a miss. Other than this, it was a good option.
