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!!!
