    Loved the location, staff were all so nice, rooms are a touch dated and need a broom so you can sweep up the sand each day :-)

    Tangalooma Review

    The resort is lovely however its a bit outdated and could do with some renovating. The food options are really disappointing - expensive & not great quality. I definitely recommend for anyone staying there to take their own food as there are bbqs to cook with. We did the North Moreton Island Tour & our bus broke down on the way back to the resort - air con wasn't working and I almost fainted in the bus because it was so hot. The second bus that came to get us kept overheating so we had to keep stopping on the way back to the resort. Definitely don't believe its worth the $140 pp we paid for. I did attempt to get a refund but the Manager didn't bother calling me back which was disappointing. It was our wedding anniversary so we tried not to let the negatives get to us & still managed to enjoy our stay despite the food & island tour.
