Hammock Beach Resort

Hammock Beach, Gold Coast Beaches

The hotel

This world-class destination overlooks a secluded stretch of unspoiled Atlantic coast, with 2.4 miles of pristine beach to call your own. Boasting a fantastic range of amenities, there’s everything you could possibly wish for. 36 holes of signature golf are at your disposal, including the on-site Jack Nicklaus Ocean Course with 6 holes directly along the Atlantic coast, and the spectacular Tom Watson Conservatory course just a short drive away. If golf doesn’t appeal, we’re sure a spot of pampering will, so head to the full-service spa, brimming with state-of-the-art treatments and therapies. There’s also a fantastic gym, with professional trainers on hand to give advice, and classes in yoga and Pilates. The resort is also perfect for families — all ages will enjoy splashing about at the Water Pavilion with its 3-storey slide, fountains and lazy river. Bicycles, kayaks and boogie boards are available to rent. Younger family members can busy themselves at the Kids’ Crew, an action-packed club with plenty of fun activities, including arts and crafts, themed parties, beach bonfires and Ping-Pong tournaments. It’s a great place for them to meet and make friends whilst adults enjoy some well-earned time out.

This is a beautiful resort and we really enjoyed our stay here. The valet and bell staff were outstanding. We arrived at noon expecting to wait to check in, as check in time is 4:00.

This is a beautiful resort and we really enjoyed our stay here. The valet and bell staff were outstanding. We arrived at noon expecting to wait to check in, as check in time is 4:00. We were pleasantly surprised to find our room was ready. Check in was a breeze and our luggage was brought to our room in minutes. We ate at the Atlantic Grill and the Sushi Bar and we enjoyed our meals very much. We didn’t spend much time at the fantasy pool complex, because we discovered the Lodge pool that overlooks the beach. It was quiet and lovely. There is no drink service at that pool, but both the Atlantic Grill and the Hammock House are close by. By the way, the bartender at the Hammock House is very friendly and personable. The patio at the Hammock House was one of the best seats on the whole property. What a great view! We stayed in an updated room on the 3rd floor that was very nice. It was just 2 of us so we stayed in a one bedroom suite. I’m not going to lie, this place is expensive, but I felt the rooms, service, amenities and view are worth it. Read less

I stayed for three nights and four days with a few other couples. The room was okay, I booked an updated room and I would say the room was not updated, it was very dated. I’ve stayed at more updated Holiday Inn Expresses. The food however was horrendous. It’s hard to find a comparison to the quality of food for the price you pay. You pay fine… Read more
I stayed for three nights and four days with a few other couples. The room was okay, I booked an updated room and I would say the room was not updated, it was very dated. I’ve stayed at more updated Holiday Inn Expresses. The food however was horrendous. It’s hard to find a comparison to the quality of food for the price you pay. You pay fine dining prices for the food at both The Atlantic Grill and Delfinos and the food is of Bob Evans or worse quality. You pay the equivalent of Ruth Chris or Capital Grill prices, and is in no comparison. No seasoning, tastes precooked, similar to food of an Assisted Living Facility. I won’t return for the sake of the food alone. I called the assistant concierge manager and I didn’t even receive the word “sorry” when explaining the food situation. Read less

To be fair, this hotel gives off the vibe that it SHOULD be a nice place, equivalent to a four-star resort. That being said, there are certain qualities that, in my opinion, keep it from being such. I saw several small pieces of trash in the small pond by the pool, including a toy plastic shovel and a Gatorade bottle. Secondly, the security… Read more
To be fair, this hotel gives off the vibe that it SHOULD be a nice place, equivalent to a four-star resort. That being said, there are certain qualities that, in my opinion, keep it from being such. I saw several small pieces of trash in the small pond by the pool, including a toy plastic shovel and a Gatorade bottle. Secondly, the security guards, especially the one(s) at the entrance to the Yacht Harbor Village, could stand to be re-trained on customer service; the guard at Yacht Harbor Village seemed a bit clueless. Finally, it’s concerning to me how COVID regulations don’t seem to be enforced in the Lobby or other places, specifically with mask-wearing. Even though the vaccine is being rolled out, it seems COVID regulations would continue to be enforced on a regular basis. Read less

Advertised as a luxury resort and it's anything but. Waited three hours past check in time to be given our room. Place is markedly understaffed, and it is very difficult to get anyone to help. They ask you to use a text messaging system with any needs or concerns, but then do not respond to any of it. Major areas of concerns: 1. In the middle of a… Read more
Advertised as a luxury resort and it's anything but. Waited three hours past check in time to be given our room. Place is markedly understaffed, and it is very difficult to get anyone to help. They ask you to use a text messaging system with any needs or concerns, but then do not respond to any of it. Major areas of concerns: 1. In the middle of a pandemic, I did not see ANYONE cleaning any high touch surfaces (bar tops, check in desk, railings, etc). 2. Pool areas are much smaller than they look in pictures. Pool was overly crowded, with no seats available unless you waited in line at 8:30am to get in. Pool temperatures varied drastically- one pool freezing cold while the other was hot tub temperature. Indoor pool area is disgusting, not at all as it appears in pictures. Food and drink service at pool was incredibly slow. No towels available at most times. 3. Beach area chairs clumped together, with only a few umbrellas. Beach has HUGE rocks under surface of water- very dangerous. 4. Atlantic Grille food was overpriced and not appetizing at all. 5. Kids staff, specifically Alyssa, seemed uninterested in their jobs and did not appear to like children at all. The kids camp area is right next to the indoor pool and we watched two small children "escape" into the pool area, and kids camp staff laughed about it rather than appropriately responding to the potentially dangerous situation. In summary, this is an overpriced mid grade resort parading itself as a luxury destination. Save your money and stay somewhere else. Read less

Fantastic resort and 5 star service. Cannot beat the golf, and the kids had a great time on the waterslides and at the pool. They are doing a lot of upgrades but you can't beat the views and the weather. This is a great go-to for a family trip!
