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.

We stayed here one night July 3rd 2020. Our room was at the Lodge. Do not stay in room 20 if possible.

We stayed here one night July 3rd 2020. Our room was at the Lodge. Do not stay in room 20 if possible. It's at the end of the building where the delivery trucks arrive in the wee hours of the morning and will keep you up. We had a king bed room with balcony and view of the parking lot with the ocean in the far distance. The room was very clean and somewhat updated. The bathroom was nice. We enjoyed dinner at Delfino's ...the tables were social distance and service was good. The beach area was very nice, offering chairs and umbrellas for the guests. The pool that is at the Lodge is in desperate need of updating and cleaning. The second pool which is further down the property was very Lively and offered music and that is where most of the people were hanging out. The grounds are nice and most of the staff was very accommodating. We found the resort mostly to be for golfers, which we are not so maybe that's why we didn't quite connect with the property very well. Overall, the place was nice, however perhaps the rooms in the condo Towers offer a better experience. Read less

We been coming here three to four trips a year for the past 7 years. We used to call it our happy place. The nicest thing was that you didn’t have to carry chairs or umbrellas to the beach, you just showed up. Beginning last July (2019 )chairs and umbrellas started getting short and then the hording started. Today it finally happened, there was enough of a altercation over chairs that a lady was pushed by a guy and the security guards had to escort him away. The problem would be solved by maintaining the same number of chairs and umbrellas that they used to have. The room rates have gone up but the quality continues to decline. Read less

We just got back from Hammock Beach Resort, our 5th time visiting. This was our least favorite trip. We got a premium 3 BR, 3.5 BA unit (#147). This unit was the FARTHEST unit from the pools and a bottom floor. Our master BR had a view of overgrown shrubs. The good: The A/C worked great and our unit was nice and cool.

We just got back from Hammock Beach Resort, our 5th time visiting. This was our least favorite trip. We got a premium 3 BR, 3.5 BA unit (#147). This unit was the FARTHEST unit from the pools and a bottom floor. Our master BR had a view of overgrown shrubs. The good: The A/C worked great and our unit was nice and cool. The unit is huge and there is plenty of room. The beds were super comfortable. Staff was very nice and the pools were very clean. The bad: The unit - it's dated. The sofa smelled old and was very uncomfortable. The TV was standard definition (not HD) and was not working when we got to the room (missing a panel cover which looks cheap). The wifi was not secure and slow. The pots and pans were terrible - looked like someone got those at goodwill. Most frying pans were warped. No, cookie sheet pans. There was a small 8x8 pan but it was so scratched up, I couldn't use it. They had the bare essentials in cookery. The dishwasher creaked and rusty - same for the refrigerator. Everything just seemed at little too used for $500 a night. The pools - crowded! We stood in line at 8:45 in order to get chairs for the day. The wait staff was nice, but slow. They were out of several mixes for drinks which is disappointing when you want a fun drink by the pool The beach - the beach chairs were in terrible shape and only had a few on the beach. I asked the staff for more and they said they were "all broken" and that was all they had. No wait staff on the beach any more :( I think if you paid $250 a night this would be worth it but at $500 a night it should be much nicer! Read less

I am considering the unusual circumstances of our current world pandemic. This review is based only on those things unaffected by the pandemic. We paid about $450 a night for a 3 bedroom 3.5 bathroom LUXURY (per the resort) ocean view condo. The condo was huge! The patio was HUGE! The luxury part would have been true 20+ years ago. Their was certainly a viking appliances and very nice decor, if we were in the early 2000's. In my opinion for that price, we should have updated luxury. Also, the view.... we could barely see the ocean. The patio furniture was so worn and torn the ceramic was chipping off on our clothes. The cushions were ripped and so dirty I didn't even sit on them. We found random cheerios on the floor and the dining room table had crusty cheese in between the glass and table. The couches were worn and dingy, I could feel the dirt. One of the mattresses was flipped over and made up on the wrong side (like sleeping on a box spring). When flipped the other side was also made up... Some of the staff were not very pleasant, check in with Olga was like being greeted by a jailer. Our key stopped working, I spent a good 45 minutes walking back and forth to the front desk and then waiting for security. The pools were nice, clean and fun. The best part was borrowing a golf cart to eat at the little golf diner. The bartender was great, friendly and fast. Read less
