Reviewed 25 January 2016

I knew from reading reviews that Opal Cove Resort was a 1980s original condition (now dilapidated) place .... But it was a pit stop for one night en route to Byron Bay and was at a reasonable rate. What all the "negative" reviews say is true, it is a dump, no effort to fix up the bathrooms in the rooms,...

Dear Noufy, Thankyou for taking the time to review our property. We are an older establishment but do our best to present as well as we can and look after our guests.

Opal Cove just doesn't know what it wants to be. Marketing promises an upmarket resort and charges accordingly, reality however quite different. Mistook the hotel foyer for a public swimming pool on account of the humid chlorine-infused aroma, pebblecreteterraces, video game machines and soda refrigerators. Eventually found the check in counter, oddly located under a giant sign advertising car rallies,...

Just a nice place to spend down-time while exploring Coff's Harbour. The accommodation is nice and comfortable to settle down in and the facilities are nice and relaxing. It's also easy to get around and there's a nice beach that's not too far.

Sure it could do with a fresh lick of paint, but this is one of the most beautiful areas in Australia. You don't visit the Coffs Coast to look at your hotel room walls all day. Having said that, there is plenty to do when you get 'home'! Gym, jacuzzi, sauna, Dreamtime Dayspa, poolside bar, lagoon or beach walk -...

I spent a few nights with the family over the xmas break. My 6 year old loved the pool. I enjoyed the cocktail happy hour between 6-7pm and the cocktails were of decent quality. Our room was tidy & well cleaned by staff each day but the room itself was looking fairly tired. I felt the reception staff were friendly....

Stayed for a few days with the family. The entrance and foyer have the false opulence of the late 80's and early 90's written all over them but behind the impressive façade, while it is a nice hotel, it could do with an update. The pool area was quite nice and there are a few other facilities such as gym...

Found the resort to be in dire straits of an upgrade but has endless potential once complete. Beds were very uncomfortable (old mattresses), sofa bed mattress was paper thin making it also uncomfortable for kids. On a more positive note, staff were very good at front reception, room was clean and very spacious when compared to other resorts, and pool...

We stayed overnight to try something different and wouldn't stay again. The resort needs updating big time, especially outside. The hallway to our room went on forever! There was no undercover parking. The buffet breakfast was pretty good, they probably could of had a bit more variety.

Upon walking into the main entrance it was clear that the resort is well maintained and it had a feel of a much more expensive resort than what you pay.
