We stayed at Adrift about 15 years ago and always found it good value, clean with cheerful 'live on' site managers. This time however was a different story. There was no one at reception when we arrived at 6pm, thank god we had a phone between us. We finally collected our keys and went to our room only to be... More

Stains on Carpet, drapes dirty. Very dusty bedroom headboard and skirting boards. Bed was comfortable and unit quiet. Surroundings and amenities need a revamp. No one on site if a problem arises. Wifi excellent.

We arrived at 6:30 to a sign on the reception door to ring a number. There being no phone to ring on luck we had a phone. We get the key out of the key safe were there are several other keys. We go to our rooms they are clean & tidy. For the amount paid I think more customer... More

We stayed 3 nights at Adrift and found it clean, tidy, and comfortable. Staff are amazing. Friendly and willing to assist. We were however, disappointed with the lack of office/reception hours. The apartments would do better to have staff available more than 3hrs per day, and the water kept backing up in our vanity in the bathroom. Having said that,... More

Had a great time. Units were neat and tidy and very comfortable beds (which is great). Excellent value for money and Maryanne was a gem - helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay there again - close to everything and easy walk to the beach.

We had a 2 bedroom unit which catered to our every need. It was the best pricing allowing us to have a family holiday for 10 days. The water pressure in the shower was awesome and the beds we very comfortable. During a storm the power went out and the power surge cause our air conditioner to stop working. We... More

We booked the 3br unit, which was huge. It is very old and dated but it was well equipped with everything you need, it's close to the beach but we didn't get to go there because it was terribly windy and wet. There is a shared washing machine but no dryer, which was tough in wet weather. The pool is... More

A little bit old apartments, minimalistic and kinda granny, but clean and no smells. Beds were comfortable, the thing that I really love - good water pressure in the shower. Not often you can actually find a good water pressure. The manager is lovely. Location is quite convenient - very close to the beach and there are some shops around,... More

A great place to stay for all the family. Accommodates group bookings really well. A beautiful pool that kept the kids occupied for hours as well as a games room. Rooms were tidy and comfortable with a decent television. Walk to clubs, cafes and beach within minutes. The manager Maryanne was very friendly and provided the best service I have... More
