It was most welcome and appreciated but completely took us by surprise. The room was perfect and I would just like... More

We had to come to Port Macquarie for Sporting/business and we hadn't made a booking. After driving around for a Motel we came across Sails Resort. From the moment we checked in everything was great, we had a lovely updated room which reception upgraded to ocean view at no extra charge. The room was superb with a huge king size... More

A great place with nice, clean and decent sized rooms. We were upgraded so overlooked the pool. You could sit at the balcony and comfortably watch the kids swim in the pool. The foyer has a pond running through it to the restaurant. The fish came up for a pat. It is across the road from a major shopping centre... More

You will just need to come back and enjoy the hotel some more. Thank you for your very kind feedback. The Water Dragon you saw was not a pet, they just like to hang around the atrium in the sun, sometimes you can see up to four of these Water Dragons, especially over the summer months.

We came here for an overnight trip to see The Beards at Panthers and it did the trick just nicely. Not overly modern or fancy, but it's pleasant and convenient with beautiful views of the marina.

I have stayed at Sails a few times in the past (more years ago now than I like to remember....or even can!) and was aware of the facilities.

Just had 2 night stay at Sails, in a water view king room and it was very enjoyable. Sure the hotel is showing its age but I understand it will soon be renovated so that should transform it into a high quality resort.
