Dear Chalmerss17, Thankyou for your feedback. It is unfortunate that you have chosen to post a subjective and in this instance inaccurate account of the incident involving a group of young sportsmen who had to be asked to tone down language and racist chants in order to not offend the bulk of the guests in the Resort .

From the moment we pulled outside the 'resort' as it is classified i was underwhelmed. I was already googling other resorts that we could potentially go knowing that I could't cancel. Firstly we arrived quite early as we booked this resort as a stop over on our way to Sydney for 2 nights. The service at reception was kind of...

Had a nice stay at Opal Cove, our room was good and clean and the hotel is in a great location, no complaints!
