The airport to The Ville is about a 10-15 minute drive. $18 in an Uber on the way in and $27 on the way out - go figure!
Check-in was a breeze. The view from the room was to the north overlooking Cleveland Bay toward Magnetic Island. One of the best hotel room views I’ve ever experienced. The resort has all the usual trappings - multiple restaurants and bars and additionally a small casino. Staff were mostly all friendly and helpful. I only ate in the Spin Cafe and the Quarterdeck where the food was OK without being great. Prices were typical for a resort. The pool area is beautifully laid out and inviting. The only small criticisms I have is that there were 2 ice machines on separate floors, but if you weren’t staying on either of those floors your key wouldn’t allow you access. Seems like a waste of time. Also there wasn’t a resort shop for incidentals like snacks. In lieu of that service could I suggest placing a vending machine in some out of the way place so guests could buy chips, nuts or cans of soft drink without having to pay those in-room prices!
Overall though, a great stay.More
