Elaine A. Couples - 08/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Resort surroundings were very pleasant - breakfasts were excellent but food in the restaurants not up to standard for the price. Accommodation was basic and access to the beach difficult for older people.

Dear Elaine, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent stay with us. We are so glad you enjoyed Magenta's beautiful location. I appreciate your feedback on your dining and accommodation experience and I will ensure I share this with our Team. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Kind regards, Rebecca King Guest Relations

as_oz_canberra 08/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Went for the easter break in 2021. First the positives - amazing staff, super friendly and helpful. Great restaurant with good food and wine. Accomodation was way under par - for > 1500 AUD per night for a 3 bed villa, the bed and the ameneties provided did not match what is expected of Pullmans. Terrible pillows, small TVs - worse than most AirBNBs. Doubt, if i will ever go back for stay.

Good morning as_oz_canberra, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent stay with us. We are so glad our Team and your dining made a memorable experience for you. I do also really appreciate your feedback on your accommodation and I am so sorry that you left feeling disappointed. I would love to hear more on how we can improve the room you stayed in so please do contact me on 02) 4352 8113 or H8791-GR@accor.com It is our hope you will allow us the oppurtunity to welcome you back to Pullman Magenta Shores Resort. Kind regards, Rebecca King Guest Relations

Great spacious family hotel villas

Alison B. Families - 07/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a great stay in the lagoon villas right beside the pool. Everything you need was found at the resort and kids loved the pool and Easter egg hunt. Good Friday dinner was fantastic and we felt comfortable and relaxed given the attention and friendliness of the waitstaff. Breakfast could be improved, with more fresh fruit options and something with some wow factor to be on par with the rest of the experience.

Good morning Alison, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent stay with us. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and that your family were able to enjoy our holiday program activites. I have noted your comments regarding your dining experiences so I can share them with the Team with special mention to Sami. She is a wonderful asset to our Team. We do hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards, Rebecca King Guest Relations

Lennie Couples - 05/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

My husband and I recently had a one night kid free break there and it was perfect. Lovely rooms, friendly and accommodating staff and excellent facilities. We loved that we could get everything in the one place - beach walk, swimming pool, spa, bar, restaurant, gym etc. It meant we could really enjoy every minute without having to thing about it.

Good morning Lennie, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with us at Pullman Magenta Shores Resort. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and do hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards, Rebecca King Guest Relations

Agreed, but aimed more towards golfers and not the general public

Nathan H. Families - 03/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Excellent service at front desk and in restaurants and bar. Very disappointed in the room, in particular the bathroom that not only smelt, but was aged and looked like a hospital bathroom. Certainly not a luxury experience in the room we had.

Dear Nathan, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent stay with us and I am so sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations. We have not been referred to as a hospital ward before so your comments are concerning to me as we strive to provide a memorable experience for all our guests and to hear we have let you down is not the experience we wish for our Guests and I am truly sorry you left feeling disappointed. We do hope you will allow us the opportunity to welcome you back soon. Kind regards, Rebecca King Guest Relations

Anonymous Couples - 03/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed for our Wedding Anniversary and had booked a spa villa. When we arrived we were told we had been upgraded to a 3 bedroom villa which was over the top as there was only the 2 of us. To our disappointment there wasn’t a spa and the villa had a very strong odour, damp/water smell. Staff were friendly and we did enjoy the breakfast.

Dear Leisa, Thank you for choosing to stay with us to celebrate your special occasion and for taking the time to share your recent stay with us. When upgrading our guests we dont wish for their experience to differ from the room they booked and I will ensure I share your comments with our Team to keep in mind when upgrading our One Bedroom Villas. I am sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations and it is our hope that you will allow us the opportunity to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards, Rebecca King Guest Relations

A Villa was nice but the walls were a bit dirty. Otherwise it was clean and nice roomy layout. Found the food a bit lacking and inconsistent service. Some were extremely good but others were not so good.

Dear Alice, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent stay with us at Pullman Magenta Shores Resort. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and I will ensure I pass your kind words onto Kyle in the bar. We do hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards, Rebecca King Guest Relations

Rude, unhelpful staff. Average experience.

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Alissa Couples - 29/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff were rude, disorganised and unhelpful from reception, dining and bar. Firstly, I had prepaid my room and yet in the lead up I had 5 missed calls and messages from the hotel asking me to confirm my booking. I was panicking that my room was going to be cancelled, but when I did finally call back, it was just so they could try an up sell me dining and spa services. I provided feedback that calling guests between 9-5pm during work hours wasn't ideal and perhaps they could follow up with a text or email. They just shrugged me off. When we arrived on the Friday to check in the lady behind the reception desk was less than warm. She barely spoke to us and it was like we were an inconvenience. We checked in and were sent to our room with the wrong key. I had to call them to let them know, they were apologetic, but it still took them nearly 20 minutes for someone to come with the right key while we just stood at the door. We came for a small intimate wedding at the restaurant and the service was very average. I don't think the bride or groom would complain but the service was bad. They wore face masks but put them under their chin? The staff spent most of the time chatting to each other so we had to flag them down to get drinks. The food was put down with half the guests outside taking photos so they ate their food cold. The food was cleared so fast that people couldn't just enjoy the meals. At 10pm we were asked to move to the bar, however when we got there the lady said she was packing up and was so incredibly rude. The bride & groom put down cash behind the bar and she begrudgingly accepted to stay open, not without scowls and lots of comments. Overall, I would not recommend Magenta Shores.

Dear Alissa, Thank you for taking the time to share with us your recent experience at Pullman Magenta Shores Resort. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. Our Team is known for their superior service so to read that our Team were rude, dis organised and unhelpful is very concerning and our Management Team take feedback like yours very seriously and we are currently taking the appropriate measures to address all of your mentioned concerns with our Team. I appreciate you sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will allow us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Kind regards, Rebecca King Guest Relations

Well appointed rooms nicely designed and clean. The cocktail bar server made some amazing cocktails however the front of house staff were very under trained and coffees we’d received were bitter and made with no skill. Overall a nice experience.

We do have a fresh Team in our Front of House areas so your feedback is very valuable to us as we strive to provide a memorable experience for all guests.

Good afternoon Jackie, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent stay with us at Pullman Magenta Shores Resort. I am so sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. We strive to provide a superior experience for all guests; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please know that we do not offer room service for breakfast we have two options onsite either in Barrett's restaurant or Shallows Bar. Room service is offered from 11:00am weather permitting and unfortunately due to the weather during your stay it was not safe for our Team to be driving the golf cart in extreme conditions. We are working towards a zero carbon imprint and sustainability as an Estate; with this we have replaced bottled water with water jugs and we can supply ice cubes from Shallows Bar. I really appreciate your kind words and I will ensure I share your feedback with them as it is feedback like yours that helps us to continue to grow as a Team and what we offer here at the Resort. Thank you again Jackie and we really do hope you allow us the opportunity to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards, Rebecca King Guest Relations
