A comfortable room and undercover parking outside the door. No traffic noise though the occasional aeroplane will fly overhead which for me was a bonus but not loud enough to disturb. Meals in restaurant delicious and friendly helpful staff. Air conditioning works well which is needed at this time of the year. Lovely pool and would happily stay here again.

Nice room, spa bath, good undercover parking, unfortunately the aircon wasn't very good & we were sweating most of the night. No fan either. Needed a few more coffee sachets as we only got 4 and 1 biscuit. Reception staff were pleasant...

Bad reviews are certainly not our thing, we prefer to keep it positive. After finding a great deal on Wotif of $85 per night we booked a birthday stay-cation. Looking forward to an onsite "all day bar" and delicious restaurant. As lovers do, a surprise birthday cake was arranged and delivered the morning of our stay (in secret). Upon check-in...

I stayed at Coral Cay Resort for a night before I continued my driving journey further south. It was an unbooked stay and chosen as it was presented cleanly. I found it to be well-priced; clean, and modern with newish facilities. It was a comfortable stay to get some much needed shut-eye and the staff were great in accommodating my...

Nice clean motel which was indeed spacious for a family. The motel room was decorated and cleaned well. The receptionist was very helpful in helping us book a room. Although I only stayed for one night, I would comeback.

I have finally stayed at a travellers motel that did not look like it was stuck in the 70's. I couldn't believe the room rate for what I got! I've stayed in country hotels all around Australia where I've paid double the amount and stepped into a 1970's time warp. Not at Coral Cay Resort though... this hotel is excellent...

I have happily stayed at the Coral Cay on a number of occasions and this time was no exception. Great location on the highway, makes it easy to find and to get places. The low cost of the room was amazing given the high standard of furnishings and cleanliness. Will definitely be back.

We stayed here for one night on our way back from Darwin. Lovely clean comfortable rooms in a pretty resort. There is an onsite restaurant which we didn't use and there is a beautiful pool area. The reception staff were really friendly and welcoming. A great place to stay if you're in Mackay and the rate was really reasonable.
