Aqualuna Beach Resort
Reviewed 24 July 2017

Scenic nice place to stay.
We headed to the spectacular beautiful beach for a walk and saw some Dolphins playing in the waves.
Pool was beautiful, kids loved it.

Ocean View self contained apartments we stayed in 88 -
-kitchen, Dishwasher flimsy didn't clean dishes properly, No potato peeler, cheap toaster, massive burnt crumbs under microwave from someones chicken schnitzel, 3 mugs only :-/ .
-2 bathrooms Clean towels, Lovely orange soap grime on shower door main bathroom, and in the spa bath that was also the shower in the en-suite bathroom.
Laundry great.
PLEASE PUT A PELMET ON THE MASTER BEDROOM WINDOW, It is very bright very early in the morning.
The decor of apartments are stuck in the 1990's....cane furniture, If you like that error this is the place for you. Feels like it was once a very beautiful resort, needs a bit of love and freshen up to make it as spectacular as it probably once was.
Cigarette butts are scattered throughout the garden, lovely as your first impression when before enter your room.
Very easy access to the pebbly beach.( remember your thongs....or flip flops.)
i noticed a sign upon check in, you can have an updated room (??) for extra $40.00 a night, personally they should all be updated, keeping the same rate.
Young Blonde girl at reception at check in and check out was lovely to me.I could tell she was a bit over Customers I made sure I was nice/easy going with her.
I discussed the issues i had with the room with her, she seemed frustrated about housekeeping, I got the feeling that they often have issues. She apologised.
honestly I have stayed in worse..just needs love.

Room Tip: Ocean view room, best view.

Very comfy for a family of 4 adults with all amenities. Easy access to nearby attractions and shops and the view is spectacular. Had a nice stay. 2 bed room villas were great with 2 bathrooms with a kitchen and tv.

The Aqualuna is a nice place to stay. It has everything that you could want with a kitchen, 2 bathrooms and easy access to the beach. The self contained apartments are a little tired and in need of updating but the beds were comfortable and after a day mountain biking they were nice to return to.

If you think $140 per night for a 4 star resort sounds too good to be true, you would be correct. On check in you will argue the $140 was total price and there is not a collection of other fees now owed, your argument will be won by the fact the printed invoice confirms this. Having accepted you have won, the attendant hands you a ration of milk served in a macchiato cup providing enough milk for one of the four of you to have a cup of tea. Entering your two bedroom resort apartment, you can expect to be hit with a wave of the musty, never quite dry, op shop mixed with 70s cane furniture scent. Carefully ascending the stairs to your very small kitchen and living room, so as not to spill your ration of milk, you will discover an odd collection of crockery and glasses where no two pieces are quite the same. You hear a terrified yell behind you as one of your slightly OCD companions notices all three down lights on the ceiling are different colours. Sitting down you realise unlimited wifi means only one person at a time can login to the unsecured access, and decide not to use the internet for anything personnel. Your friend pours everyone an alcoholic beverage in a coffee mug knowing those two queen beds you confirmed don't exist and reception have no intention on correcting it. You have one teeny tiny room containing two small singles and another room with a queen. The mattresses will provide you with an inner spring massage while you sleep to the sound of a running toilet, with one skinny pillow each and a single blanket to share. Aware the windows don't lock you fall asleep hoping for the best. Waking the morning you all decide to use the main bathroom shower as the ensuite shower does not have a screen. You take your child size towel and hope you can get clean before the water is lukewarm again. As you leave your one night adventure and get back on the road your head is full of allergies due to the dusty, poor ventlation, you feel slightly bad the toilet brush was broken. The view of the beach was great but let's call a spade, a spade it was 2 and a half star accommodation and you won't be back

My partner and I stayed at the resort for work so just got a basic room for the night, it was very modern but pokey. The bed head banged every time you moved, so don't plan for a wild night in there. It just wasn't attached and I'm sure the wall would be well damaged. When we went to bed all we could hear was our neighbours spa filling up then the bubbles being put on then the water draining....it was very noisy. The bed was a king but only two singles together without anything to bind them comfortably together. One sagged and the other was firm, terrible mattress and pillows. The bed was that close to the cupboard you couldn't even open it. Would stay again but possibly in an apartment.

Visited Aqualuna for their restaurant Papa H's Bar & Grill for a friends birthday. We had their extreme donut smoothies and desserts. Fine dining atmosphere and great view with accommodating staff. Resort looks great but even the restaurant is worth the visit. Modern food.
