“Great resort”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

Had an amazing time at Coral Sea Resort. Caring and professional staff, nice rooms and a very clean pool and surrounding facilities. Suites have a spa and a hammock on the balconies overlooking the ocean. Too good!

We stayed for 10nts at coral sea resort at end of November as part of our trip from the uk to Australia and can quite honestly say that after staying in lots of hotels all over the world this one was by far the best one we have ever stayed in.
We were in a coral sea spa suite (223) and when they say absolute oceanfront they really mean it,
The sea was literally underneath our balcony and we spent lots of time relaxing in our balcony spa bath or in the hammock enjoying the terrific view of the coral sea, the room itself was of a very good size and very tastefully decorated and designed with big patio sliding doors leading to the huge balcony, the bathroom was also huge and the room was spotlessly clean and well maintained.
Apart from the location of the hotel the hotel itself is perfect and the staff are fantastic, and deserve special recognition for all the hard work and attention they give their guests so thank you all.
The continental breakfast was very good and although you can pay extra for a cooked breakfast you really don't need to, we did have an omelette on a couple of occasions and they were superb,
The hotel bar prices and restaraunt prices aren't cheap but australia in general is quite expensive so they also aren't over the top either and for the service you get and the setting of the hotel it's worth every penny
We ordered room service on several occasions and once again the service and quality of food was excellent,
We ate in the restaraunt one evening and even though our bill was about $180aud it was excellent value for money because the food was of a very very high standard and we did have 3 courses and drinks. The lamb i had was perfect (compliments to the chefs)
The hotel was full while we were there but you wouldn't have thought so because it was never crowded and we could get a sunbed by the pool at any time of day as well as it been so peaceful and the wonderful staff are around to bring you any drinks you may want.
The hotel is within easy walking distance of airlie town along a lovely boardwalk, and airlie itself is a lovely town with some good bars and restaraunts,
After reading some of the reviews on the coral sea resort on tripadvisor we can only assume that some people must look for faults instead of enjoying their stay because it is absolutely perfect in every way,
All in all we very highly recommend coral sea resort and if we are ever back in Australia it would be the first place for us to stay at,
Thank you to Greg and all the staff for making our stay so memorable
Hopefully see you all again one day
Mark and Angela Patterson (223)

My college age daugher and I stayed here on on way down the coast. The room was cleanand well furnished. Loved the bath tub with the view.

The balcony was fantastic - great view of the bay and lovely place to relax.

Dining room and pool area very nice.

Staff were great - especially Annie who helped up book a jet-ski adventure. She gave us great advise!!!

Room Tip: Get a room with view of bay = better than that of ocean!!

We stayed at Coral Sea Resort for 6 nights in the family suite and were very pleased with the views and loved the breakfast of cereal muffins and croissants. The pool was fantastic -- exceptionally clean. Would highly recommend this place to just about anyone!!

We stayed at Coral Sea for 1 night in a garden room (but you could see sea) and it was wonderful- the location and pool is gorgeous and the beds are soft and very comfortable. We had the included breakfast and there was definitely enough options not to need to upgrade to the hot breakfast- ceral, crossiants, fruit, muffins, meats and cheese.

We stayed here for 3nights but wished we had booked for longer.The view we had was amazing overlooking the pool and the sea.Lovely spacious rooms and clean.
Breakfast was included and there was a good choice from the buffet no need to spend money on a cooked brekkie.
The staff on reception were very friendly and helpful.The hotel is in a great position being only a short walk to all shops and restaurants.
Hopefully we will be lucky enough to return one day.
