Detail in the rooms are fantastic. Views are amazing restaurants are very good. Staff is average to possibly below average. Worth the higher price. Far better then the other hotels in the area
Staff was not helpful for the most part and felt like they always had better things to do.
We needed to arrive 2 days earlier then expected and Opal fully accomodated us and we are very grateful!
Food and drinks could have been priced lower in order for people to enjoy more. Many guests felt the same way
We loved the pool staff, especially David, Emily and Jake. They made us feel very welcome!
Great location. Great ocean views from our room. Seems to be one of the nicer resorts in the area.
