We booked a "family room" for our family and one additional for my mother as we were celebrating her 60th birthday.
On arrival at 2pm we were told our rooms weren't yet ready (given the 3pm check in, we weren't upset about this) but were happily surprised by the upgrade for my mothers room.
The front desk staff were friendly yet professional and full of suggestions of things to do whilst we awaited our rooms to be ready.
We received the "room ready" call at approximately 3.30.
Both of our rooms were large, friendly and boasting awesome views.
We went to dinner that night at Sea Salt (separate review)
It appears that there is not great communication about special offers and the restaurant as we were left with having to explain the extras and check our bill to discover a few errors.
The cocktail bar was excellent - although it took significant time for our cocktails to arrive given the quiet time of night and relatively low patronage.
The beds were comfortable and the outdoor furniture functional with the balcony large enough to take advantage of the views out over the beach and headland.
Given we stayed on a Saturday night, we had significant street noise in the early morning as the nightclubs closed and patrons spilled onto the street.
The bathrooms were clean and lovely with the only suggestion being that shower screens replace the curtain in the next round of renovations.
The blockout blinds were excellent and provided the privacy and darkness required to avoid the early sunrise
Checkout again was great with the friendly front desk staff wonderful and ready to assist with the issue of our package not being applied to our restaurant bill.
I would stay here again, but request a higher floor if possible.
The pool and spa looked wonderful and even in winter there were quite a few brave souls in both!
