We rented a 3br townhouse for 2 couples and 2 toddlers. The apartment was great, everything we needed kitchen, laundry etc. plenty of room in the bedrooms for portacots. We were able to negotiate a better price than the booking sites directly with the resort. Great sunny warm balcony for reading books, we had one over looking the beach, which... More

Spent 5 nights at Resort via a Groupon voucher. $370 for 1 bedroom spa unit overlooking Hervey Bay. Room was very pleasing and well appointed. The spa was fantastic with full view of the Bay while tubbing up. The resort facilities were excellent as was the location. My only criticism was that you had to pay to use the BBQ's... More

This time, we were there for just 3 nights for the ANZAC break. Stunning views as usual and just 10 meters to the water. Can't fault the housekeeping. If only the owner of this Unit upgrade the kitchen's cutlery and utensils and provide a cutting/chopping board, it would make this fully self contained Unit a much better stay. There should... More

We had a 3 bedroom apartment over looking the sea. The apartment was great, it had everything we needed, although a small coffee table to put cups of tea and coffee on would be good. Great location easy access to the beach and shops, we had a fab holiday

I couldn't find better for the price! Joined the hotel chain's clubcusoon and got 5% off the already cheap rates during Easter School Hols for a 5 night stay. Units I'm guessing are individually owned so would all be furnished differently. We had #37 on middle floor overlooking the Marina. It was comfortable, clean & everything worked. We had it... More

We had a lovely break in our one bedroom apartment. It was modern, clean and very relaxing. The staff were excellent. Thank you Margaret and David for your help. Within walking distance of cafes and the Boat Harbour Club for meals. Beautiful grounds, and the beach is right there in front of you. No roads to cross. We stayed three... More

Overall we thought this resort was good value. We were in unit 1, which is on the ground floor with an immediate view over the harbour. There is a garage for your car and you walk out of the garage across a courtyard into the unit. The entrance from the garage brings you straight into the bedroom, which is a... More

Room was spacious and comfortable. Noticed some cockroaches and emailed hotel about them and did not get a response. As not from Australia not sure if cockroaches are normal in this part of country or if they have a problem.

Stayed here for three nights on a discounted package, and I guess we got what we paid for . Most of the negative reviews concerned cleanliness of the apartments, so we were a little dubious but booked anyway. The negative reviewers were right, our bathroom floor had hair, pubic hair and dirt that my wife had to sweep up. The... More

My wife and I stayed here over the Australia Day Week-end, and travelled with friends, who also stayed here. We all loved the accommodation. Yes. It is dated but we found it comfortable and roomy. All the units have their own character, and we were not disappointed with ours. The resort is close to restaurants, and there were plenty of... More
