It\'s a very special place - we just loved it & hope we can return to enjoy it again, one day!
The only comment I would make is that the water from the shower in the main ensuite backs up and water collects over the tiled floor around the floor drain, which made the tiles extremely slippery and rather dangerous - I would suggest this should be fixed, as it is an accident waiting to happen.

Liked: We liked everything, especially the large open space, the views, the balconies...

We stayed at Carmel by the Sea from 17 to 24 December 2011. It was a great place and the whole family enjoyed the holiday.Wendy and Teresa at the front desk were very helpful & friendly. Nothing was ever a bother and we did not want to leave.Really appreciated their advice also. Everything ran nice and smoothly, no hiccups whatsoever. We look forward to going again at the end of 2012 for another family holiday.Thanks for a wonderful time.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The location is excellent with the beach across the road and the mall near by. There is an nice bistro down the road called Kurrawa Surf Club. The indoor and outdoor pools were great. I loved the Tennis court. The only problem was the bedroom on the eastern side only had a small window and and fan that wasn't that effective. I was very difficult to sleep at night after a hot day. There is a Bus Stop around the corner and the Reception and Security is Great.

We found that reception had no flexibility and apart from one lovely lady who was new there, everyone else seemed very abrupt. One of the reason we chose the hotel was because of the wading pool. However the wadding pool was over my childs head so the pool area was not very effective for our family.

I agree with another review and cant understand why this hotel had 4.5 stars. I was so looking foward to staying here as on the internet the pictures of the rooms look very modern and clean and our room was old, rundown and a bit dirty. And there was a bit of a smell. I would reccommend when booking asking for a renovated room.

Liked: the pool area was nice but a bit too much shade and the size of the apartment was good.
Disliked: the quality of the room and cleanliness.

We stayed in a three bdrm appartment. Great location, sensational views, well appointed and very clean. We were there during recent storms with two young children and the indoor pool, foxtel and dvd were a godsend. The outdoor areas such as tennis court, pools and bbq looked great (shame we didn't get to use them due to weather).

The property was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay very much. The facilities were cleaan at all times.
We were there in the recent storms and there was a blackout. In this instance there was no torch or candles nd so we were in the dark for a considerable amount of time. The blackouts are out of the control of owners but some sort of back up lighting such as a torch would have been handy.
I use a wirless laptop and it was a nuisance to have to be only able to use it in the foya. There should be access from the rooms.
