Fantastic family holiday
Our family of 4 travelled with extended family of 5 families in total, ranging from grandparents/adults/teenagers/children and baby. We choose two interconnecting resort view rooms which was a good decision. The rooms we clean, super comfortable beds and only aspect wanting improvement is the dated-shower over the bath. Your room account can be checked on the TV which saves surprises at checkout. The deck was good for drying towels/washing, and we appreciated the laundry for washing & drying (tokens $4 per machine). We spent a LOT of time at the family pool, which is superb! It's got a couple of great toddler areas, area for the chldren and deeper section so suitable for everyone. The morning aqua aerobics short class is fun, as are the other activities they organise there. The adults pool is also great for those times without kids. The gym is airconditioned and has a good range of cardio and weights equipment. Kids-eat-free worked well for us. Often our children ate at different times to us and they were able to order meals even if we weren't eating then. Lunch at the pool was a daily feature for them :) Buffet breakfast has a great range of food, and fantastic social start to the day when you are with a large group. Pizza at the ocean side restuarant is fantastic. We ate mostly at Outrigger but did wander down the road a couple of times. Kids club was enjoyed by our 3 to 10 year olds. The age divide was 3-7 and 8-12 years old. The older children were allowed to go down, and sometimes our 8 year old chosee to join the younger cousins which was appreciated. Overall we had a fantastic family holiday. While a few parts of the resort are dated it is clean and comfortable and we'd happily holiday there again.
Fantastic Family holiday
Room and butler service was fantastic. Kids loved kids club and adored the workers there. Pool facilities were awesome. Resort food not that good however plenty of outside restaurants within walking distance to try. Sitar (best butter chicken), Beach Bar & Grill - awesome seafood curry served in a coconut! No need to spend $$$ on outside activities as the activities provided by Outrigger cover everything and were inexpensive. Would stay here again and recommend it for families - you will not be disappointed...
LOVELY OUTRIGGER, NO WORLD CUP CRICKET!?
Stayed elsewhere on Sunset strip, booked this overnight room purely to watch World Cup Cricket final. Unfortunately none of the 18 channels screened it! However, we had a lovely stay in a 6th floor resort view room (but had a great view of sea, possibly upgraded slightly!?!? Room 625) The receptionist allowed us to check in early which was awesome, note the only one of our 4 accommodations that would do so. Our bed was comfy, room clean and even received a complimentary canape and champagne at 5pm - lovely touch! We enjoyed the adult pool area that was super, Sundowner pizza/cocktails. The main pool is a great area, but I am not a fan of overcrowded families lounging and eating fry up (so stayed away from there - it was AU school hols) rest of time it would be lovely. Lawn movies, beach volley, tennis courts, gym, small beachfront area on lagoon - plus other areas we didn't explore. I would stay here outside of school hols only. Easy walk along road to other cheaper food options - Sitar, Bedarra, Crow's Nest, Beach Bar, Crab Shack.
Beautiful big resort
This is a stunning resort. 4 of us stayed in a twin room which was plenty of room. Bathroom was nice and spacious too. Kids loved the pool area and spent lots of time in there. I personally think it was a little cool and would have preferred it a bit heated and there was no spa pool. I had an accident in the pool colliding with my daughter and split my lip open, the staff were so helpful and provided first aid for me. We never ate at the resort as it was out of our budget, except when we went to the wedding, it was delicious. Definitely bring snack food if you have hungry kids. Highly recommend if you like big swanky resorts and stunning ocean views.
