Really enjoyed our stay here in a 3 bedroom waterfront, top floor apartment! Spacious lounge, great balcony overlooking the water and what an amazing view to wake up to in the morning. On a busy road but soundproofing is great so no issues at all. Managers were very hospitable. Would definitely stay again!

We stayed at the reef for three days and thoroughly enjoyed it. The managers were amazing - super friendly, remembered our names, gave us advice and truly looked after us. Nothing was a problem for these two! Our apartment was stunning with a beautiful water view. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one incl a full laundry) and a fully equipped kitchen.... More

We have used this hotel for a number of years. The last managers were so unprofessional we were very nervous about going back. So glad we did! New managers have transformed the place - from the booking process, the personal welcome at the desk, to the clean rooms (!!). The new managers are outstanding. We will be back!

What can I say.....This place was fantastic. Firstly the apartments were extremely well maintained, clean, tidy and had everything required. We stayed for two nights in July 2014, and it was so comfortable we didn't want to leave. The management were very accommodating, friendly, helpful and obliging, not to mention patient, and child friendly. I would recommend these apartments to... More

Fantastic apartments in a great location opposite the beach, near to shops and all amenities. Our apartment overlooked the heated pool and hotpool and the hardest part was having to drag the kids out! The apartment was spotless and spacious, and the hosts were lovely. Despite the place being full on the day of our arrival, they still remembered my... More
