Great Short Break”
Great place to go for a short break. Loved the paddle boards & the New Sunset bar.
Australia Day Weekend”
Lots of activities to keep the whole family happy in a unique location.
Food options were a problem. No snacks late, maybe a vending machine would be great.
We felt it was a bit run down and needed some work. It is a beautiful place though with heaps to do for the kids!
Needs a lot of work”
Obviously the location is pretty. Free paddle boards & kayaks are a bonus We had an over water deluxe studio. Kitchenette has no bench space, or pantry space. We had no hot water in the kitchen. Bathroom door wouldn’t close. We asked to hire pool towels. They had none for the 3 days we were there. Wifi permanently down (it’s even in their room guide that it’s down). No shade sails over toddler pool. Staff had absolutely zero interest in professional customer service. There is a general store which is strangely about a 2km walk from the rooms. It’s got me beat why they have no resort store they would make a killing selling mozzie spray, goggles, thongs, hates, sun cream, the usual... It is very over priced for the quality of the resort.
We checked into unit R2702 on 26/12/2018 for two nights. When we tried to switch on the TV in the room as intructed in the information next to the controller but the screen could not switch to tv channels. Wifi was also not available. The general information sheets given to us state that free wif is available to all letting pool rooms throughout the resort. Is our unit a "pool room"? When I inquired at the reception counter I was told that the TV and wifi were not working at our unit. There is a notice above the kitchen sink instructing guests to clear all rubbish on check out or a $50 surcharge would be added to our bill. We managed to dispose the rubbish in the wheely bins by the roadside opposite the units although they were full and overflowing. We suggests more information should be made available in the booking site. Thanks for your attention.
Great for the weekend. Awesome private party on sunset beach. But this wasn't anything to do with staying at Couran Cove but was the highlight of the weekend. Not a great deal to do on the island really. Unless you are a sporty kind of person or have kids. A couple of days is really long enough. The food is quite expensive as is the alcohol. You cannot bring your own alcohol so you would think they could sell this at a more reasonable rate. I prefer to have a few drinks in my room than go out to purchase drinks. Breakfast buffet was not worth the money. Variety was very poor and the hot selections were luke warm.
Staff are very undertrained. Everything takes too long. ”
Staff undertrained. 30 min wait for a coffee. Room keys. Not working. Air con not adjustable. Tv not working.
So relaxing. lovely place to ge away from it all.
Good Weekend Getaway”
Room is clean and bed is not too bed. Outdoor area needs a clean from bird drops
Great active family place”
Great for families, we have two boys who loved the bikes and the stand up paddle boards. The activites gentleman was awesome and the virtual room was great fun. The only two points that were annoying are you pay a $200 security bond on arrival then have to pay another $100 bond for bikes, so that's $300 of your money tied up in bonds, I would think considering you paid the $200 on arrival there should be no extra bike bond as a resort guest and not through a private operator. Then the note telling you to wash your dishes and remove your garbage or get charged as extra $50 is pretty bad when you are paying to stay.
Great place for couple and families. Would be perfect if there is more food on menu or more restaurants. And more food in general store too.
As amazing as always..”
Hidden gem of blissful paradise..
Location has so much potential Resort run down, Outdoor staff unprofessional...maybe lazy. 2 bedroom unit had poor bedding, and furniture and few towels. There was no hairdryer, or vacuum cleaner. Lounges were smelly. Unit needs remodelling. Around outside messy with rubbish everywhere.
Good for a weekend break.”
Enjoyed the walks around the property and water views
Amazing getaway with lots to do”
Loved Couran Cove! Very happy with our 1 bedroom! Great views & very spacious room. Loved the amount of free activities that were available and can see how great it would be for families. Staff were great and very helpful. Buffet brekky was well worth the money & loved the fact that you could spend all day there before checkin/checkout
Fantastic time but understaffed”
The children's' entertainer Pattu was out of this world....nothing was too much trouble for her. Great spot for a few days, good food. Staff good and attentive but too busy and not enough of them to cope with the amount of people
More than good.”
It was a gift from nature. All of the spots are amazing in the island. Being honest the resort room was pretty standard but all of the options to do in the island will make you satisfy. This resort provide lots of activities with free of charge. All most of staffs were very kind and nice. Everything was great. Still miss the days. :) However I fell really strange when a girl were staring at me very aggresively. I assume her is f&b staff. And although I put requests for few things no feedback came when I get there. Mentioned birthday as well no reactions at all. Disappointed....... This resort doesn't read your request from online so when you need something you need to tell them directly. 8 out of 10
Value for money”
Had a great time at the resort.
What a great hide away, so close to the coast. Highly recommend! So much to do & so friendly.”
Love the food/pub & free activities. Love the Wilderness & the amazing dune restaurant! Just needs a little tlc in the kids play area & around the island! Highly recommend!
