We booked a one bedroom apartment on a two night Groupon deal which was good value for money. The apartment was great - spacious and clean with a well equipped kitchen and nice balcony area. The bathroom was the only room that perhaps let it down a little - although there was a lovely big spa bath, it could all have done with a bit of updating, to match the rest of the modern apartment.
The pool area was great, lots of loungers and separate children's pool. We got some sunshine on our second day so luckily had the chance to relax by the pool with a couple of drinks in the afternoon. The loungers are very comfortable!
We didn't use the bar or restaurant during our stay so can't comment on those, but they looked lovely.
Couldn't get the wifi to work the entire time, or a phone signal, which was a little bit annoying. We called reception a few times about the wifi but they'd had no other reports of any problems, and didn't seem to be in a position to fix things so we just gave up in the end. There was a hard wire connection in the bedroom which we were able to use with our laptop, but obviously this isn't ideal if all you have is a tablet or smart phone.
I think using the name "rainforest resort" is a little misleading, giving the impression of a secluded retreat - but it's very close to the main road and townships of Yamba / Angourie, so not really what we expected in terms of the location. Nevertheless, we had a lovely relaxing time and enjoyed use of the apartment. Not sure I would be giving quite the same review if we'd paid full price.
