“appalling”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

to be fair, the manager in charge was just as an interim as it has gone into receivership.it was very tired which was not so obvious at first. plastic bedspread, the washing machine never wrung, and it all had to be put in the dryer as the airier had rust all over it. the beds had hair in them and the entire place smelt, esp the toilets that reeked of urine. the advertised cable TV didn't exist and no toilet paper or basics just to get started. We asked for our money back within the hour but this was refused. I presume because we had paid for a week and they needed the money.
Fine for a backpacker or a family on a tight budget, but as for a relaxing place to get away defiantly not. it was so bad that we left early anyway and just lost the money.

Room Tip: prob not here at all

Reviewed 11 January 2013

We just returned from a short break at Coral Sea Apartments. After reading the previous reviews, we did not have high expections. We stayed in apartment 10 which was fabulous and very nicely decorated. It was obvious the owners use it quite a bit as it had everything from board games to anything you needed in the kitchen. The decor was black red and white in the living areas and was all we needed more. So close to the surf club and the beach. We ordered Thai from Mangos which was also very good. Could not fault the management or room we were allocated.

Room Tip: Apartment 10 was perfect for a short or long stay

We stayed at Coral Seas apartments as recommended by good friends. We needed a family friendly getaway... And we got it in spades! No, the decor is not out of Vogue magazine but I neither needed it or wanted it to be: all four of us were relaxed, comfortable & happy. The location is so very central & convenient, everything was clean & tidy, the service was restrained but professional, on site safety & hygiene rules were low key & reasonable, & the grounds were perfectly maintained. We'll be returning: loved it! The garage was too small for our beefy seven seater people mover but alternative car parking was easily attained. I recommend this holiday space!

It's ok. It has a pool, and a barbecue. It is within walking distance to handy shops and the surf club. The balcony faces south, so no sun. However, the managers are very nice and helpul. I wouldn't stay here again only because there are better accommodations elsewhere.

Coral Sea is built so that the apartments can enjoy the sea breezes in the summer time. Not all buildings can face the north and in the summer time those with north facing balconies are not the ones you want to be staying at as the balconies are too hot.

We stayed here for 5 nights in July, peak season here with school holidays. Whilst we found the accommodation clean and lots of parking my husband could not sleep at all on the beds. He ended up sleeping on the lounge cushions as they were softer! Don't try to have a bath, hot water lasts for just a few minutes then goes cold, bad news when there are more than one or two in the apartment. A fan in the bathrooms would be useful too!

I stayed here three nights in October.
The Good:
nice big room
large balcony, good for relaxing
Very close to the surf club
close to shops, close to the beach, great location
Big kitchen
two bathrooms
Cheap for 4 people

The Bad:
The bed was noisy and not attached to the bedhead and so banged everytime you moved.
Carpet was old and needed to be replaced
Door handle broken in toilet, it fell off on the inside!
Fridge leaked, spent the whole time with a towel under it
Fan was broken (and fixed)

I would only go back to these apartments if they updated them and replaced all the broken things. It needs to be repainted, floors replaced and new beds. As the location is good and rooms a nice size. Bedding and towels were nice too.

A reasonably priced well located apartment. Room was not clean and may appliances needed servicing and repair. Felt like I was continually complaining about needed repairs.
