Ventajas: In one sense, it is very good, that construction and development is prohibited any further in the Uluru area, for conserving sacred Anangu land. On the other hand, it makes for a captive consumer segment, with the Pioneer lodge dormitories the only affordable option under 40 dollars in the Ayer's Rock resort complex. Everything is basic. A/C was definitely appreciated. The December rains caused flooding all over the resort. The staff was always helpful and friendly. Grocery store nearby was very convenient.
Ventajas: Price & location near uluru. Nothing cheap on site though..but not surprising.
Desventajas: Beds were uncomfortable bunk beds. Shower was filthy with mold on tiles. Toilet stopped up after single use. Young, poorly trained staff. I get that we're a captive audience but 270 AUD a night for a room with bunk beds is just highway robbery, however you look at it.
Ventajas: Very friendly staff and rooms were always clean with a beautiful view of the rock at the lookout!
Ventajas: Staff was good.
Desventajas: There are only about five hotels in the area, so there is not much competition. So you're going to pay a lot more than you would in other cities.
