Bij een vakantie door Australië mag eigenlijk een bezoek aan Ayers Rock niet ontbreken.
Ayers Rock, ook wel Uluru genoemd in de officiële aboriginal-taal, staat op de werelderfgoedlijst van Unesco en is zeer bekend.
De fantastische kleurschakeringen bij zonsopgang en zonsondergang en de rode grond in combinatie met de heldere blauwe hemel zijn een lust voor het oog.
Het plaatsje Ayers Rock ligt in het midden van Australië en biedt niet veel meer dan een supermarkt en wat accommodaties, maar beschikt wel over een vliegveld.
we stayed here over new year in a Superior Room. The staff were great, the room was spotless, and massive, though a bit tired, but then the whole resort is. We had a bottle of sparkling wine in our room for our wedding anniversary, which was a lovely surprise ! the pool area was cordoned off with ugly railings, and the price of cocktails there was astronomical, even by Australias very expensive prices. we were on the ground floor, so had a nice little terrace area. We only had drinks in the hotel, so cant comment on the food the Front of House Manager went out of his way to help us the whole time.
"Comfortable but very pricey hotel"
The Sails in the Desert Hotel has a good location in the Yulara resort as it is within 3 minutes' walk of Town Square with its few shops, bank and cafÃ©. The hotel has a pleasant swimming pool but with the railings all the way round it means that only a few sun loungers can fit round the pool so the majority of sunbather/swimmers have to sit outside the fenced area. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with decent sized balconies but our balcony floor was filthy when we arrived and it remained so for the 2 nights that we stayed. The corridors leading to the rooms were plagued with hundreds, possibly thousands, of moths of every type and size. Obviously in the desert you are likely to get more insects around but this was not typical of other places around the resort. We sat outside and ate out at a different hotel in the resort and never saw anything like this. The main reason we chose to eat at a different hotel was because the Sails in Desert breakfast buffet and evening buffet prices were extortionate. Having paid mega bucks to actually stay at this hotel a small bottle of complimentary drinking water in the desert heat would have been very much appreciated but, no, although there were bottles of water in the room these had to be paid for!! The small viewing area at the top of the hotel allowed you to see Kata Tjuta in the distance but we could not see Ayer's Rock properly. Both evenings we caught the free bus to the Outback Pioneer Hotel to view sunset over Ayer's Rock and Kata Tjuta. We will not be staying at the Sails in the Desert again.
"Itâ€™s the middle of the desert...and itâ€™s great!"
I think you have to come here with the mindset that itâ€™s in the middle of the desert. Itâ€™s not Sydney. Thereâ€™s dirt, bugs, galahs, flies, heat, everything is expensive...because itâ€™s THE DESERT. Itâ€™s a different place with an economy based on isolation, and itâ€™s a hostile environment. So to have a room with good aircon, great bedding, a big bar fridge in the middle of the desert is pretty luxurious. There were so many positives: the grounds are lush, the lobby lovely, close to shops, staff were friendly and the pool is huge. Thereâ€™s a free laundry! There were bugs, but the kids loved them. Huge moths, stick insects, horned beetles, lacewings, frogs, lizards, red muddy mud: this is the stuff our kids love. Minor cons: pool has no shade...this is a killer in summer and made it tricky to enjoy in the heat of the day with kids. Just a few sails would do the trick :) Bathrooms are dated, and the shower over bath and shower curtain is a bit ick but once youâ€™ve been up to your knees in mud any shower is a good one. More pool towels by the pool would be great too. None of this made our visit much less enjoyable, but could be better. Food & drinks: If you are an Accor Club member and keep your drinking to a very bare minimum, the food ends up being incredibly reasonable. We probably ate too much, but what we did eat was fresh, beautifully presented and variety was great. Chocolate fountain very popular with the kids :) So if you come with reasonable expectations about what a good hotel can reasonably deliver in the middle of nowhere, youâ€™ll love your stay. The important stuff is all great, the rest you can overlook when youâ€™re getting to see such an incredible sight as Uluru.
"Uluru - great Australian family holiday"
Spent 3 nights in Uluru with the family, a thoroughly great time. Stayed at Sails which was an ideal place to stay. The hotel is clearly dated and could do we some updating, but the rooms are great, and the overall resort very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was fantastic although a little busy, but that happens this time of year. The dinner buffet was also pretty good, though a little expensive for a buffet dinner.
"Nice room, shocking grounds, expensive restaurants and poor service"
I stayed at Sails in 1995 and not much has changed since then, but more wear and tear. The room was / is really nice, though room 185 is the furthest room from the main building and takes forever to get to a meal and is shocking if it is raining. In which case don't ask reception for an umbrella as they'll tell you you have one in the room !! But if it isn't raining when you leave your room they can't help you get back dry - as you can only use the umbrella in your room !!! Most unhelpful. In addition, if you ask for an umbrella at reception and lose the argument that they should help - don't look back at them as you walk away, as they will be laughing at you and your situation. Shocking and demeaning service. Be careful ordering the discounted breakfast in advance - as many tours start early so you can beat the heat for the walks / hikes etc - meaning you can't use the prepaid breakfast - so it ends up more expensive. Speaking of expensive the $73 per person buffet dinner is just that. Not a huge choice for the price. If you order a bottle of wine, don't expect the staff to see if you need anything else - they take your order then they vanish !!!!! The pool area and pool restaurant looks like an old Eastern European army camp. It is as ugly and unimaginative as you could imagine. It would not take much to make it look nice - what a wasted opportunity. The outside in general could do with some attention, and they don't appear to take too much care of the state of repair. But the air conditioning works - so that's nice, and when you walk back to your room in the rain with no umbrella and finally get to a covered walkway - it leaks too !! Nice. Nevertheless, it's a short stroll from Sails to the resort centre - so that's convenient and the tours available are well done. The beds are comfortable and apart from an evacuation alarm going off at 5am one morning that kept us awake for 40 minutes the room was as comfortable as we could hope for. Some staff were friendly, most were not so interested in helping more than direct responses to requests - which is such a shame. So - if you set your expectations low (ie don't expect 5 star treatment and service) then you will probably enjoy your stay at this hotel. But Uluru is wonderful and it's worth a visit.
