Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa
Ranked #2 of 12 Hotels in Broome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 June 2014

As the name suggests, this facility adjoins the beach, and the great location and perfect weather makes it a fantastic winter escape from the south, if you don't want the madness of Bali. The staff were good, and the resort is well maintained. The Sunset Bar is the place to be every evening and the restaurants are of good quality. There are also good places to go nearby. My wife enjoyed the Chahoya Spa, but I can never resist just a walk along what has become my favourite beach. For a $28 breakfast, and extra for drinkable coffee, the buffet could be a little better.

Room Tip: We tried the rooms with direct access to the Adult Pool, absolutely wonderful.

While this is an expensive option in a town where everything is expensive, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The garden view room was spacious, very clean, with all the little extras that one expects in a resort of this caliber. All staff were very professional, friendly and eager to please. Laundry facilities were available at $2 per wash and free dryer. Maybe with the price one pays to stay here the $2, while not much, could have been free. Two beautiful pool areas, one for families and the ocean pool was lovely and quiet. Great place to watch the sunset over Cable Beach. Camel rides very close by. The breakfast buffet is fantastic. There could not be anything one would want that is not there. We booked the breakfast with our room package and saved approximately half the price if we decided once we got there. The bus stop is not far from the entrance and $4 will take you in to town one way. The resort offers a free shuttle service to and from the airport for it's guests. I didn't notice this advertised anywhere but discovered this information when I asked. A taxi from the airport will cost around $20 if you don't use the shuttle. Really quite happy with our stay. Rated as Very Good due to the cost of the room. Otherwise Excellent.

Perhaps things look better the farther ago they are, but having stayed 4 times over 20 years, the Cable Beach Club is less attractive over the years. The facilities are good, but bits are getting a touch shabby; perhaps it is more neat than smart (or in a Broome context it has lost its lustre). Certainly you would expect a higher standard for these prices if it were elsewhere. The food I thought was very ordinary, and definitely overpriced - walk over the road or around the corner instead. I would absolutely stay away from the buffets. The main restaurant has a nice ambience.
I also thought it was very poor that you could only get their cocktails at the bar - at high class hotel prices I would expect the bar to be more accommodating (and I would Definitely not recommend their 'house cocktail' Negroni - making it with sparkling white wine changes it entirely, and not for the better!

Cable Beach is as magnificent as all of the guide books suggest. White sand, warm water, amazing views. But it's name sake resort is lacking in some key respects (which doesn't seem to be that much a surprise to the resort owners, given the other reviews we've now read). We had such high hopes for CBCR, and booked for a week. Good service is sporadic. Maybe it's been a long holiday season already (even though it's only June), but the reception and concierge team seemed forced and dis-interested. A standard room at CBCR is not cheap. We chose a garden view studio. We hadn't realised we'd have a view of one of the busiest (and noisiest) car parks in Broome. We realise that someone has to have the lower rated rooms at any hotel/resort, but there seem to be a few wings of them here. We enjoyed the food and the service at the Ocean Pool which was efficient and friendly. CBCR is looking it's age, and the pools themselves need a serious upgrade; pebble mix was never good under foot, even in its heyday (which tells you how old the resort actually is). It was good to see Broome, but we'll definitely be heading back to Far North Queensland for our next escape. My suggestion for people wanting a resort holiday in Broome is to look for other more modern resorts; the locals we spoke with all gave Pinctada a good report, and it is also pretty close to the seriously amazing beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the Cable Beach car park.

My partner and I have just spent 4 nights at cable beach resort and we were in heaven.We had a pool terrace studio and loved everything about our room and the outdoor deck was fantastic.Being able to walk straight down to the adults only pool from our deck was awesome.I dont know how the housekeeping staff do it but I have never stayed in a room that smelt so divine.We ate at every restaurant except the club as it was unfortunately shut we when wanted to go but we will put it on the list for our next trip.The food and staff in all restaurants were great and we even had a special birthday cake presented to my partner with all staff singing happy birthday thanks joanna.A special mention to the friendly and attentive staff at the pool, cocktails and food were perfect.I used the gym which was so well equiped and my visit to the spa was outstanding, thanks anna.The location was the best in broome and to eat breakfast overlooking cable beach and then to watch the sunset over the beach whilst having a drink in the sunset bar was very special.Every staff member we encountered from gardners, housekeeping, service staff and management were so friendly and made every day special.Some may say food, drinks etc is expensive we didnt find the prices excessive as everywhere in broome is pricey as you are in a remote norwest town and is to be expected, we found the resort great value and will be returning next year.We felt there was so much attention to detail in every area and that all staff went out of their way to make our stay perfect.Thankyou for a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: pool terrace studio are the pick if you are travelling without children

Right on the beach, several restaurants to choose from and excellent service. The hotel is top notch, very clean and beautifully appointed. The rooms are well furnished, airconditioned and spacious.
Would definitely re-visit

we spent 2 nights here as part of our APT tour of the Kimberley .....excellent dining facilities at the Sunset Bar and Grill ... ideally situated directly behind Cable Beach . would have liked to have spent more time at this resort but decided to change as it was very expensive compared to other choices in this part of Broome . Breakfast is excellent .Dinner was expensive and the wine prices breathtaking !

Room Tip: choose a room that gets lots of daytime sun and close to the Ocean Pool
