    Great staff and majic sunset cruise

  • 6.2
    Good

    It's a very understated resort that tries to cater for all budgets. It's a prime location and a privilege to have the right to operate in a location like that. Seemed like the staff were friendly and willing. Weather was wonderful in July.

    Felt like the faciliities were very tired and in need of a good revamp. Surprised to see very little in the way of eco/environmental initiatives eg solar hot water, solar power and water saving shower heads. The resort could and should model itself on the new envirnomentally conscious and eco-friendly traveller and perhaps take a leaf out of how some of the national parks are run. Make people aware of how you source your water and energy. Wind power from Denham? Water from bore? I am sure that both are in short supply and so this could be a focus. We expect it these days and I felt this was a real missed opportunity. The dolphin feeding was disappointing. Too regulated and formalised. Is there a way to loosen the reins a little. Any way to create an underwater viewing area. That woud be a real crowd puller. Did not visit the Ocean Park area, but if that had been co-located, that would have been really exciting.

    Room was nice and clean, bar food reasonably priced.

    expensive for one night stay, stairs up to room, difficult with luggage. Expected more from dolphin interaction

    Interaction with dolphins in the wild - although was not as good as I thought it would be.

    Superb

    The location was perfect, the staff were amazing and there is accomodation to suit every traveller. The food was great, as were the facilities. I would recommend Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort to anyone without hesitation.

    Superb

    Although the room was very basic (no tv, coffee or fridge etc) the facilities in the resort were great. the kitchen with 4 bbq's was nice but bring utensils and equipment or you need to hire everything.

    The room was not air conditioned which I am told is happening next year but my fil is scottish and coming from -4 at night to 24 was hard. would be nice to have brooms in each room, the beach sand was everywhere and we only stayed 2 nights.

    Exceptional

    we absolutely loved the peace and quiet at this hotel. our room was right by the bar but they are very respectful of noise levels and cklose early enough that we didn't notice. We loved watching the ocean from our room and the dolphins and pelicans ensured there was always something going on to watch. Could not fault our stay.

  • 6.2
    Good

    It was a short distance from shark bay, as we attended the racing.

    The noise from the backpackers, and the lack of choice on the resturant menu, it was ok if you liked fish.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The beachfront villa we stayed in and being so close to the water.Good tv selection.

    Too cluttered surroundings- every available piece of green space used.People walking right past our door and we stayed in the most expensive option. If they came any closer they'd just about be inside our overpriced Beach front room.
