    I've put facilities as average bc there are amazing facilities: pool, volleyball net... And they were pretty good. However, basic facilities like toilets and kitchen were atrocious. On Thursday night by 8 pm, 5/6 toilet stalls were clogged. By 10 pm, there was no toilet paper. The bar is really cool, but didn't have the open friendly vibe I found at Nomads Byron bay. People seemed to have a clique and not being part of it, I didn't feel very welcome.
