A good place to relax as long as you book a deluxe suite

We stayed here two times in the last few weeks. The first time was an overnight stay in a garden room and the next one a five day stay in a deluxe suite. Surprisingly, the suite cost us 20% less than the garden room! but unlike the suite room! I would not recommend the garden room. The only negative experience in this hotel is the tropical buffet breakfast. You can order a more substantial breakfast than toast and Vegemite, but it is misleading to say that breakfast is included in the price.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Go next door to Sanctuary seafood grill for excellent food, which can be charged to your room. Away from the resort we really liked the Waterline restaurant for the atmosphere and great live music and okay food.

Very friendly employees. The main pool was undergoing maintenance and didn't open until we left (great when it opened). Great lagoon for snorkeling. Very good food and fun daily activities. Good value.
