Pool has leaves and dirt in it, kids got ear infections from spa. Units are the pits, no office, no caretaker, no anything, people just do as they want,... More

Thankyou for taking the time to write a review Johnny M Sadly just prior to Christmas Allamanda Retreat was vandalised and among items damaged/stolen were the BBQ plates, Sauna equipment and laundry. It was a very disappointing time for all owners at Allamanda Retreat. If you (and your family) wish to revisit please call us on (02) 4333 1000. We... More

Small block of just 24 apartments (numbered 21 to 44 for some odd reason) in a quiet location away from main roads and with no traffic noise. Unit 22 is the best position in the block - ground floor (saves carrying all your luggage up flights of stairs), very close to car space, children's playground with sandpit directly behind unit...

Thankyou for taking the time to write a review SandBandTwoKids. I agree unit 22 is in a nice location within Allamanda Retreat and has the ground floor access to the pool and gardens. We are pleased your children enjoyed the new Playground (with softfall and astro-turf for added safety). Love to see you at Allamanda Retreat again. More

We booked this one night stay only thank goodness, through Agoda and we have used them several times to book accommodation and this is by far one of our worst experiences. The whole, no manager on site and pick up the key from a safe in the Entrance where there is no parking, was an awful start especially as we... More

One of the best motels i have stayed at with my family and the staff so friendly. Great family place to stay, great swiming pool and so close to the beach with sauna and spa. This place is very relaxing and we have been there about at least 4 or 5 times and will be going agan soon.

OH BOY, WHERE DO I START! We booked UNIT 36 for five people and walked into the unit to be welcomed by an awful overpowering musty smell. It was so bad, we went and bought perfumed candles to burn in the unit while we were there. The things we discovered: - no sheets had been provided for the fifth person... More

This is just average. It has pool & play area for kids which has a sandpit - our 3 year old thought it was great. Accommodation was adequate for the purpose. 5 minute drive to the entrance. Building needs some TLC - could be a mixture of permanent residency & tourists Close to Towoon Bay

Found it really hard to find someone on the phone. Phone most of the time went to an answering machine. Rooms really dusty and everything is really old and run down. Not quit a train Wreck but close enough. Was good for a cheap getaway but I'm not sure I would go back.

Lucky we only booked this hotel for one night. Apartment 22 is in original condition with threadbare carpet, furniture and no attempt made to update anything. Toilet leaks and the shower was full of mould. The real estate agents managing this should be embarrassed accepting money for this. We paid over $200 for an apartment that is just feral. We... More
