The hotel was great, activities were excellent. The only down side was the BBQ - they over cooked the fish and it was tough, yes fish tough

2/10 Poor

cockroaches and sands - not impressed
We had many cockroaches (small sizes) even the hotel staff attempted to improve the situation with a common insect spray - just can not imagine what this will be during the hotter seasons. The room is full of sands on the floor - however this may be a feature here as the third large sand dune in the world. Personally i am not impressed.

6/10 Good

The room did its job. We were not far away from the beach, activities or the restaurants. However the sink area was all mouldy and the shower water didn't work very well. It was a bit tricky to get the water warm, as the water would go cold as soon as you turn the cold water tap on. The floor seems dusty and dirty.

8/10 Very good

We absolutely loved our stay at Tangalooma The view is amazing. We Would definitely go back!! The only thing I would like to see change is the bed oh my it was like concrete which isn’t great when your in your 40’s with a few niggles here and there. Also it would be great to have more of a selection at the cafe for wraps as there were none at all and smaller salad options when you don’t require a huge meal from the other food outlet. And more stock replacement as if I didn’t purchase a fruit salad at 9 am when getting my coffee sometimes there were none in the afternoon for my son. And nowhere else to purchase it!!!
