        • Family with children

          The pool was very nice. The environment and garden were very nice. Staff were helpful.

          Some of the room facilities are a little tired and breaking, the tap in the shower, a stool, the sheets were a little worn.....floors need a good clean.

          The entrance to the property and the staff were its best feature.

          Obviously rundown, entire property needs makeover. Our room was not cleaned during our stay.

        • Family with children

          Loved the surroundings and the counter staff were really helpful and efficient. The food at the Tsuruya Restaurant was amazing, Even though at the high end of pricing we would probably go back to the restaurant. Amazing pool. Activities were easy to book and the staff were very helpful. Saw lots of kangaroos, kookaburras and even some brolgas - was lovely.

          The room smelled mouldy as did some other parts of the resort. The housekeeping staff were noisy to the point where we were woken twice (our room was close to their store rooms). On one occasion they left it so late we didn't end up having our room cleaned. We looked at the other restaurant (Billabong) which was far too highly priced for our tastes. We actually drove to Yeppoon centre due to the pricing. When we went to "mini golf" we were surprised that it was just putting greens and not the normal landscaped / obstacle mini golf we're used to. We did end up playing and enjoying it, but it was not what we expected. It would have been nice to have a microwave oven in the room. We expected separate rooms / bathrooms for parents / kids, but parents bed was in living room and only one bathroom. Expected better of a "Rydes" resort, even if they only manage it.

          The atmosphere was family orientated with lots of activities. The rooms were quiet with a lovely view. We thought that the internet ad was misleading when it came to facilities in the rooms. We expected that a two bedroom suite would have two bathrooms and that the furniture would be in a better state of repair. I should also mention that there appears to be a mould problem inside the rooms. I understand the weather has been extremely damp but something should be done about this.

          The beach was lovely, staff were helpful and food in Japanese and Billabong restaraunts adequate if a little expensive.

          We didn't like the state of the rooms, very strong mould and mildew smell. Bathroom tap was broken and made showering difficult. We booked a non-smoking room but the room reeked of cigarette smoke, also smokers on neighbouring balconies made it unbearable to enjoy the view or sea breezes.

          Location to the beach, great pool and waterfall and activities.

          The musky smell in the room, probably due to all the rain this summer!

          Location is okay, but not that close to the ocean. Helpful staff.

          Some aspects of this resort start to show their age. Services and extras are rather expensive.

          The room smelt and was dirty, there were three massive beetles in the room, we could not stay in it and evenk though the resort was massive and there was hardly anyone around they would not change our room and were rude so we left, the worst hotel I have ever been to by far!

          The swimming pool

          The resort is generally run down. My room was dirty and had water leaking in through the ceiling. Also house keeping was none existant and the paint work and fixtures are old, dirty and in need of a major revamp. The worst Rydges I have stayed in.

          Good pools and surrounding activities, ie putting green. Nice grounds with native wildlife.

          the restuarants were good but there was a lack of menu choices.

          The fact that they did not try to improve their facilities and make the trip easier for the guests even though they knew it was going to be full for an event. Overpriced every single thing since they know its impossible to get out of there being far from any town.

          Loved the rural setting with beach just a moment away. The lay out of resort was great with plenty of room for everyone.

          The bed was very old with springs coming up through it into your back do not expect that when paying premium price for a room with sea view.

          Was a great weekend we live local and are regulars. Great pool area and staff helpful. Went to japanese restaurant which is excellent service and food. We stayed in the ibe bedroom apartments and they were well stocked with kitchen stuff etc. loved being on ground floor as had young son of seven who loved playing on lawn at front with other kids.

          The cleaning in the apartment was not great lots of cobwebs and some of the bedding wasnt great. The resort for the price it charges needs to up its game a bit or make it cheaper. We go regularly and so know what to expect but first timers or people ttavelling from elsewhere may be disappointed. The resort is a bit tired in parts also on the saturday there were no pool towels and was 40 minute wait for them. Ad I say if you are paying top dollar then you expect a bit better.

          The environment, the activities in the resort even though some cost a bit pricy and being at the beach front.

          Hotel room doesn't have some utilities such as microwave , basin for washing dishes, and proper dinning table.
