4/10 Fair

Loud and frustrating
Nice setting. Very loud though with tents crammed in, neighbour’s either side drinking heavily and talking loudly until midnight. You can hear everything. Breakfast was from 8am, two hours after our kids get up. Couldn’t order a coffee until after 11am - bizarre. Kids and parents riding their bikes on the narrow footpath, occasionally clipping our pram. Lots of rubbish in the gardens. For the price, very average

8/10 Very Good

Great location. I love Rottnest. What needed an improvement was attention to detail. When spending over $700 a night the property should be immaculate. There was food scraps under the bed, the electronic blind wouldn’t raise all the way, the pool was missing tiles, the slid8ng fly wire was broken and wouldn’t stay on the tracks. The resort is lovely and is very relaxing though.
