This accomodation would have to be the dirtyest in the entire region of surfers. The apartment is leased out on behalf of property owners wtakes have no idea of the condition as apparently they are looked after by waterways. We found the property on agoda and when asked to view the room he said I only have 1 apartment and... More

Loved our stay here. Can't believe other reviews about problems with staff because we found Dee went out of her way to give us advice on local area and accomodate our needs. The views are magic and the beach is a short stroll away. Apartments are spacious and well designed for 2 couples to have private bathroom/bedroom areas each. Kitchen... More

The location of Waterways is superb, on the river close to everything and the unit was very large. But all this was spoilt by the very aggressive caretaker. He constantly abused us and others. There was constant shouting in the lobby and elswhere. He often appeared to be under the influence of some intoxicant. Take my advice and have a... More

Holiday Maker beware, The start and first day of the holiday was promising. The location great, grounds well kept, greeting by the front desk female receptionist warm and bubbly and the appearance of the apartment OK. The standards and service slipped from there. I noted to the manager/maintenance man that the shower head in the master en suite was leaking... More

The manager is an aggressive hoodlum. Pool was not heated. The only good thing was its location. Everyday we were abused by the manager and there were constant fights between he and other guests. The location is very good, just across the road from all the shops.
