We stayed in a 1BR unit in late June 2014. The location is excellent - being so close to the beach, with a private pathway leading from the property. The recreational facilities are plentiful to keep the children engaged. At this time of the year, there were very few people at the property, and hence everything seemed to be in... More

My husband and I had a week at the resort in a 2BR unit with another couple. The location was great and nice drives to surrounding towns and locations. Grocery shopping convenient. We found the layout of the units a bit awkward with the bigger lounge area upstairs away from the kitchen. Definitely needs some TLC in the units, as... More

We spent a week of timeshare here last week. The beds and linen were spotless but the general cleanliness in the unit was not good. A small amount of cosmetic maintenance would enhance this place greatly. In contrast the grounds and pool area are immaculate. There seemed to be someone constantly working in the grounds. It is a pity the... More

We had a lovely holiday and the kids loved it. Although the resort is a bit dated, I found that it had everything and more than we needed and the kids loved it! The beach is really close and easy to access and we spend so much time there! It was too cold to swim in the time we were... More

My family and I stayed here over Christmas 2014. The rooms are as you would find in a motel. There is a fridge and cooking facilities and a flat screen TV with a DVD player. The rooms are situated in a quadrangle with parking lots for each room. In the center of the quadrangle is a very pleasant swimming pool... More

What can I say - I am not even sure how to rate this "resort". We needed accommodation coming from the north back to Sydney and family were staying at Ramada Diamond Beach Resort which had no vacancies and situated next door to Seashells. Good location but really needs an urgent update . It was clean but its 2014 not... More

The hotel is understandably dated but little, handy touches could really improve the comfort of those staying at the hotel. There is a laundry available but no laundry detergent dispenser. This would be an income stream for the hotel and seriously pleasant for the visitors. There is a hot tub but no indication of how to get the key after... More
