On the 10th November 2012 we embarked on the Celebrity Solstice in Dubai (UAE) and cruised for 26 days, via several exotic (and some, not so exotic!) ports of call, to Australia. We disembarked the ship in Brisbane and then spent five days driving a hired 4x4 down the Pacific Coast Highway to Sydney. This 1100 Km road trip is... More

The hotel refunded the advanced purchase price of our accommodation, even though it was under a No Cancellation restriction. We were... More

The dinner we had in the restaurant was the best for the year. The chef is really creative - who would have thought of combining scallops with duck ? The establishment had changed ownership - hopefully the new owner will refurbish as units are tired, though big and comfortable. Accor will continue management until end of existing contract. It sits... More

LIttle expensive considering... Located on the edge of town so taxi required. Bureau de Change has a max limit less than the cost of a room (per night).. the local beach is beautiful and hotel swimming pool is great espc in the mornings when empty.

Our weekend was ok. The surroundings of the resort were lovely. Felt that the staff and service was of a good standard. Unfortunately the cost of the weekend, $149 per night is a little extravagant considering the standard of accommodation and facilities.
