The most expensive low quality accommodation I have ever stayed in Feb 11, 2010
The keys were collected from reception and we made our way to our 4 STAR Villa. This is when disappointment started to set in. We had the worst Villa on the row. Even from the outside, with the sun shade ripped and twisted, we were dreading what we would find next.
My wife and I work very hard and expect our holidays to be pleasurable. My wife as booked vacations all around the world for many years for both family and friends. She always seems to have a knack for choosing value for money. We have stayed in many types of accommodation, on many different types of vacation, ranging from low budget to luxury.
I asked my wife what we had paid for this 4 STAR Villa. I was shocked. $440.00 per night. This 4 STAR Villa had old, scruffy and dirty plastic furniture. The place was not even clean and it did not even have air con.
We had just stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in Noosa Heads that was half the price.
We cut short our stay. We were originally booked for 3 nights but I changed the ferry booking and we only spent 1 night there.
I have asked for a full refund. I believe that this is fair. We have not received any kind of an offer.

Expensive luxury hotel on an island Aug 08, 2009
For 2 nights, the Wild Dolphin Resort was our hotel. The Kookaburra lodge is a four storey building, with a clean and good room and a view on the beach from the room.
The bathroom facilities were also good. All in all it wass good value for the expensive price.
The beach was very close by, and the facilities were just a short walk away. The food in the restaurants was very good, with a good variety in dishes. The seating area however at some restaurants are very basic.
The resort offered plenty of activities, like whale watching, dolphin feeding, quat bike tours and of course the beach itself. There is a shipwreck nearby the island for snorkling and/or diving.
I also noticed the resort is suitable for kids, as they have a small swimming pool as well as playing fields for sports.
