Unfortunately the hotel is showing its age and does not live up to a four star rating. There was also a water problem and when anyone rang to enquire the guest services failed to answer. Very disappointing
Hi Anthony H We are sorry to read that your time at Sails in the Desert did not meet expectations and I am particularly concerned that we were unable to assist you to resolve your issues during your stay. I sincerely apologise for this and assure you that this has been addressed directly. I do hope that you were still able to enjoy exploring the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Kind Regards Riaz Mahmood Georgia Rowe Sails in the Desert
We stayed at Sails in order to attend the Field of Lights installation and the associated dinner. Extremely lucky with the weather which made the trip even more memorable. The staff were great. Breakfast excellent and a light dinner at the bar area good value. I think we were lucky to have a small view of Uluru as I don't think many rooms have this view. The hotel seems to be very well maintained but there ar some areas that need a little attention. Car parking is a problem as the car park closest to the hotel is very small but two other areas close-by can be used. Overall a great trip made even better with the accommodation.

This was our 4th visit to Yulara and we are still enjoying it ! Magic. This was our second visit to Sails in the Deset and we very much enjoyed all 7 days ! Our Ground floor room was excellent with a nice outside sitting area. The bed and linen were excellent. The extra room for table, chair and lounge is very much appreciated, particular in a remote area with limited night activities. Overal the hotel facilities are excellent with different spots for coffee or a light meal. The main restaurant is of good standard, although we rate the GRIL at desert garden as best in Yulara The Fillet Steak, Pork and Fish was of high standard, in fact the Steak was the best I have ever tasted, Congratulations must go to the Chef and his Staff !!! Overall a most pleasant experience ! We will come again.

We very much look forward to welcoming you back for your 5th stay in the near future! Kind Regards Riaz Mahmood General Manager Sails in the Desert
Great hotel with excellent amenities. The pool area was great and the rooms really well laid out. We had a ground floor room near the pool area that had some shade. As the temperature was 37 degrees during the day this was important. The only thing missing was a gym. Given the heat running after 7 am was impossible so a gym would have been appreciated.
Hi TNT620002, Thank you for taking the time to review Sails in the Desert. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the facilities on offer. Given we are in a destination designed for outdoor activities we have until now resisted a gym however I do appreciate your comment. Thank you for choosing to visit Ayers Rock Resort, it was a pleasure to have you as our guest. Kind Regards, Riaz Mahmood General Manager Sails in the Desert
We really look forward of staying in one of the best hotel in Ayers Rock Resort, considering the price of the room, we expect bit better services. Staffs are very friendly but not enough during check-in , lunch and dinner. Hotel can add one or two more good food outlets. We joined most of the tours and one big disappointment is the Sound of Silence, the buffet style menu was below par for the price, but must say the surrounding and atmosphere is great. We were charged after checked out a few days later for mini bar service which we did not use, complaint and was promised to refund to the charged credit card. Very disappointed until today some two months later, no refund received. Also, I use one Le Club voucher to pay part of my bill and until today, no credit to my account.

We have contacted you directly via email regarding your account as this was actioned upon check out however I do apologise that it was not clearly communicated with you. Thank you again for your feedback. Kind Regards Riaz Mahmood General Manager Sails in the Desert
As Accor Plus members we were given a welcoming greeting and a room upgrade. The room was great with a view of the Rock from the balcony. The bed was very comfortable, as we have come to expect at Accor hotels. The grounds and gardens are well kept and there is a beautiful stand of ghost gums. Food was up to standard and at capital city prices but if you wish to dine cheaply there are plenty of options throughout the entire Ayers Rock Resort. If you wish to stop at a good hotel then don't expect backpacker food prices. My comment about details is minor items like obvious minor removable mildew in the shower area, wobbly chairs in the foyer side of the Walpa Bar with loose joins that pinched fingers and a few spots around the place that needed a bit of a touch up. Overall though a good clean hotel with friendly staff that provided an enjoyable stay.
I booked thru Pullman Hotels and they stuffed up the booking. The reception staff at Sails were excellent at getting it all sorted and luckily there were rooms available. Had a meal at their dinner buffet for my birthday .. it was extremely excellent. Have been to a few buffets, but this was took the prize.
