The resort misnamed as the title does not match reality. Great location, friendly staff and beautiful grassed area however the building and rooms are run down and the cleanliness below standard. Prices are very high for what you get and should be reduced in line with a basic motel on the Great Northern Highway. I hear it is due for replacement and this could be the reason no money is being spent on maintenance.
This place is basic but comfortable. It's very run down and needs so much attention to bring it up to an acceptable standard to match the prices they are charging. Bathroom renovations first and foremost, they must be 25 years old, if not more. Furniture is chipped and tired, security screen locks don't work and only one lock on the main sliding door. Not very secure. We had a lower ground unit overlooking the beach. Good for a couple of nights stay max but certainly no a resort by anyone's standards!
Location, Location, Location
The hotel is located right across the road from the best beach in Ningaloo Reef – location, location, location. Caters for families as well as individuals. Crystal clean pool, huge grassed area for kids to play in, onsite laundry, bar, restaurant and bottle-shop. The beach is right across the street and walking distance to the small group of shops. Loads of onsite parking. Rooms are large and spacious, the beds are very comfortable with linens provided, air conditioners work well. Very good room lighting and loads of storage space. Convenient kitchenette with toaster, kettle, pots & pans, cutlery & crockery, iron/ironing board, good wattage hair dryer, but no room safe. The bathrooms are on the small side, however they are very clean, good water pressure, nice toiletries and soft towels. I can’t rate this property as five out of five because it has some minor maintenance issues to attend to, however the staff are great and doing the best they can in a remote location. Ningaloo Reef / Coral Bay is amazing and a must see destination.
Fabulous Location in ‘The Grand’ Apartment
Stayed here for a week with friends. Loved the location of our 2bed apartment, overlooking the beautiful Coral bay, a short stroll across amazingly green expanse of grass. The rooms were dated & weirdly ‘patched up’ but clean and functional. The alfresco looked over the bay & evenings were spent enjoying sunset from our alfresco. Lots of towels, cleaned & mopped daily. Serviceable kitchen, washing machine & dryer . The pub was great and in the doorstep. Live music a couple of times a week, a TAB and a reasonable Restuarant all made for a fabulous, relaxing getaway.
Less a Resort...more like Backpackers
Whilst having a low expectation this experience was terrible. The property is run down and badly in need of maintenance. The rooms are filthy with a very bad odour. Given the issue of COVID-19 this room was not clean let alone sanitised. The food is terrible. Trying to avoid any fried options (the smell of old cooking oil permeated everywhere) we chose a tasteless limp pizza. Options in Coral Bay are limited but anything is better than Ningaloo Reef Resort.
