2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We were disappointed that our $484 per night Superior Ocean View spa room was on ground floor with obstructed partial view of ocean in far distance. Our room had limited amenities and services (eg no mini bar). We were told this was because we were staying in the motel rather than the resort rooms. We were also unable to use the infinity pool because it is open to the public on Thursday to Sunday and used as a day club with no place by pool for hotel guests. The music from the pool club is also blaring loud so disturbing rest of hotel. Lagoon pool is apparently only for resort rooms. Be aware when booking at the Mindel Beach Casino and Resort that it is not what they claim. It is in fact two properties; an old motel and a separate new resort that share the same reception and management. Just because you are paying an expensive room rate don’t assume you are staying in the resort, despite the fact you are staying at the Mindel Beach Casino and Resort. No pool, no ocean view, noisy. Most restaurants closed. Service very hard to get as so few employees. Management are unhelpful and poorly trained. Resort is run by a New York based catering company.

Pictures listed online were quite different from reality. Online really focused on the resort which is where I thought we were staying. The price was high and had I known it wasn’t the resort part of the hotel I would have booked somewhere a little closer to the CBD. Rooms were clean but lack of staff meant reduced servicing. At >$400 a night, I was underwhelmed.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nice hotel but could do with a freshen up in the rooms, the carpet is not appealing and no kettle in the room. The pool is definitely the highlight.
