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!!!

Very clean Seemed very understaffed when it came to food service Stayed in room k78 Reported a loud ringing sound in the bathroom to service desk and they had the duty manager come and have a quick look at it. Loud ringing again at 4am and 6am -told the front desk but she didn’t even take the unit no down. I hope the next guests aren’t disturbed multiple times throughout the night as we were.
