Cheap but not a good deal

I've seen in some reviews, some guides or travel agencies that it was like an oasis in the desert or even Indonesian style. Any of this. Small and extrememy basic. nothing to enjoy. Icy in the night in winter despite some kind of heat. And for warmer time do not belive that swinning pool is an asset it is extremely small; of course, it is cheap But do not believe you are making a good deal; it is cheap because it it is its value

One night stay..

For a short stay was perfect...close to Casino and town centre. Would have liked a hairdryer though. Value for money.

Golfers Desert Delight

This place backs directly onto the Alice Springs golf course (what a wonderful course),with an approx 100 metre walk to the club house. There is no restaurant at the resort but plenty of good eating within walking distance, golf club, casino or the hotel next door (Hanauman restauant). Lots of other things to see and do in the area. Facilities are excellent and staff are very friendly and helpful.

very secure in the evening

The location is bit far from CBD area but, still walking distance about 15 minutes walk. Good point is near by air port and exit to Uluru, so almost the first drop off and last pick up by bus ad could save the time. The room is very simple, comfortable and cozy with high selling. In the resort is free wi-fi (1device only) but, almost time couldn't use in the room and must stay in the balcony for the internet. Kitchen is simple and just ok for warm up the soup and microwave cook. Shower is enough hot water but, no hair dryer in the room. In evening are complete close the gate the entrance and secure(they provide a OUN number for open gate)
