          Disappointed ”
          Whilst the staff were pleasant we had a massive issue with field mice in our room. I understand the location of being in the desert but every provision should be made to have rodent traps. Only after endless trips to the front desk did we come home to a mouse bouncing around in s trap with others running through our room. Would definitely not recommend it for this reason.

          We paid for the room as three of us and glad we did”
          The hotels cater for all groups of people .. for us as three single ladies the room size was good and the balcony was enough for us to sit and chill . The cheaper hotels were smaller ...breakfast was expensive but IGA not as expensive as home .. some bbqs in Park so you can go and bbq there We bought sandwiches and salads from IGA as queues for food were long at restaurants Would suggest hire a car rather than tours as all places within the park are well signposted and means you can get around easily and enjoy the bits you want to enjoy Alcohol very expensive $10 for a beer and $24 for a cocktail Next time taking a bottle of wine Camel place was a nice surprise slightly out of the hotel complex but had a bar and great atmosphere suitable for all ages including the big kids The sunrise is visible from the complex . Take a short walk up to the dune in the middle it was well worth it .. need to be at least 30mins from the actual sunrise time

          Only other choice is camping.”
          Sails in the Desert is very expensive, but the only other choice is to camp out in a tent or caravan. It is a 6 hour drive from Alice Springs for us folks that like to self-guide. Having said that, the resort itself is in very good shape. Responsive staff, excellent service, several eating choices, and comfortable beds. Dinnertime can be crowded at restaurants so book early. Petrol is expensive going for $2.15 per liter in July 2018 at the only station near Uluru.

          I travelled with my sister to Uluru and we both enjoyed our stay at the Sales in the Desert and agreed we could find no fault with the place, location , staff or facilities. We loved it and our room was exactly as the brochure showed which is not always the case. We would certainly recommend this place.

          The room could have been vacuumed a bit better. The tap in the bathroom was too short for the basin, it only reached to the side of the basin. The outside light did not work. Although we turned the air conditioner off, there seemed to be an automatic one in the bathroom, which made the room too hot during the night.

          Fails in the Desert”
          It was my 70th birthday and we travelled from the UK to see Uluru. We picked this 5 star hotel as we wanted somewhere special. We booked a superior room 5 months in advance because their web site showed a shower and bath. With no warning we found we were in an accessible room with a wet room in place of a normal bathroom. Not what you expect from a 5 star hotel. The area outside the room had recently been painted and the smell was intolerable. The hotel changed the room with bad grace and we were told take the new room or stay where you are. We took the room offered as it had the shower and bath we requested. However, this room was far from clean. The curtains were badly stained, the inside of the refrigerator was dirty from a previous guest, the toilet bowl had not been cleaned thoroughly and had a dirty mark on the water line. These were also reported and we were told they would be fixed AFTER we left. Not a hotel we will be going back to.

          Cross Ayers Rock off the bucket list and stay at Sails.”

          This hotel is far from luxury. Very large and dated facilities. Rooms resemble more of a big 3 star american hotel. Pool was dirty. Very poor dining options. Good location for visiting Uluru but not worth the money for anything else.

          Nice place to stay for Ayers Rock”
          Pros : location, staff, ease of eating and shopping in the whole resort knowing it was put onto your bill on checking out of your particular hotel. Cons: Our ac wasn't working and was fixed twice so we had a fan in the room - in 40 degree heat. Our room also wasn't cleaned on our second day in the resort, not a biggie, but I requested it cleaned the next day. It was done immediately though. As expected it was pricey, but we knew this when we booked. Restaurant and food quality was very good. The room was nice, but after seeing reception I expected more.

          The pool needs a sail over it especially in summer time when the temperature is 40 + in the middle of the day. We thought it was funny that the resort is call sails of the desert and there sails everywhere except over the pool during the summer.
