We understand where some of these comments come from but fail to see why people seem to expect so much from a resort that is not advertised as anything more than what it is; a motel. If people are expecting a 5 star resort - go somewhere else. If you want a private experience - go somewhere else... Research your holidays, people! it's not hard.
A little clue to finding this hotel.... Read the directions on your booking form! There are huge signs and landmarks and it's hard to miss,
We found the room to be spacious and the bed comfortable, firm and clean. The room was also surprisingly cool in the hot autumn weather.
We found the staff to be knowlegable and friendly and were also pleasantly surprised at how friendly the guests were as well.
The main thing I'll say about Mission Beach in general is that the cyclone damage is all but completely repaired and we highly recommend visiting the area, not only for a good unwind but also to spend some of your hard earned money in a hard hit but still beautiful part of the world.More
