A little disappointing that cabanas are not serviced daily. Did not know that there is an additional cleaning charge if you want the cabana services. Bed sheet and curtains had some holes in them

Always love coming back to the hunter, the property has a lot onsite to offer and previously the family feel enticed us back every year from the gold coast. Miss the precovid warm feel. Massive staff changes and feels a lot more clinical. Was very thankful for the handful of staff that have been at property from previous years as they bring warmth. Its nice to feel special as a returning customer, this ensures the property stands out from others! Havent really felt it this time. ..

Whilst the the facility itself was quite nice and great for families. I was just disappointed with the customer service and staff. Everytime we called reception there was no-one that ever answered, you had to pay extra for someone to clean room which i would assume should just be part of the room rate pn etc. It just didn't really feel like a hotel experience that you essentially pay to experience.

Disliked: Cleanliness
The cleanliness of the apartment was disappointing. When entered our apartment there were spiderwebs up in the corners and along the ceiling and the kitchen floor tiles were all smeared like they had been cleaned with dirty water and everything was quite dusty. It look as they the apartment hadn't been used for a while. Our bathroom was also swamped with ants, they were all through our toiletries. Considering what the Crowne Plaza charge and there cleanliness moto on the TV screen in the room, very disappointing.
