Not that happy with Resort service or cleanliness
We loved seeing the wildlife, the jetty is a great view and a must! The restaurant staff were friendly. Mick at the Kayaking Hut was really helpful. First morning we walked the beach and there were quite a few dolphins swimming along the beach. Please note when you go to the beach at the jetty area to queue up in the morning for the Dolphin experience, it doesn't make any difference what time you arrive, the people selected to feed a dolphin is random. We were a little confused and disappointed, it's great that conservation is the main focus and the feeding is only a small amount of the dolphins daily diet. It was also great to see the dolphins chase the fish so close up. However the dolphin experience is not really managed that well, they could communicate better and control the area. They only feed 2 females, so if other adults visit the beach they are not fed, which pretty much means they don't visit as much. I feel it really should be all or nothing, feed the adults who visit or feed none. It's pretty obvious why so many people visit the location, the prices in the area are higher than everywhere else we stayed in the region. They want you to pay to see the dolphins, but then there is a lot of conditions and warnings. The dolphins obviously have a bond with the staff in the water, they say to the tourists "stay 50 metres away from the dolphins" at the same time as the dolphin is touching their legs. Obviously we still have a way to go.

Honest review during school holidays and with COVID 19 locking down most states: Busy place food was less then expected, staff in the restaurant and bar were stressed, breakfast failed to arrive for my wife and we were the third family in a line to complain about missing food, we all received a refund, but that doesn’t help when you are hungry. Noisey with some groups partying until 2am. Beach view room was excellent and clean, dolphins everyday, sunset cruise was great.
