It's not a new place but it does the job. Plenty of facilities with multiple pools, tennis, volleyball, outdoor bbq area an the beach at your backdoor. The beds were quite comfortable. The shower door needed some work an we had some ant visitors in the kitchen area but other than that its all good. The manger is a funny... More

Thanks for the feedback and review of your recent stay with us. We hope we get to see you again soon. I will let Peter know you thought he was a funny guy. I will also check to see if he's fixed the shower door yet. Probably got sidetracked chatting with guests. More

The Shores Holiday Apartments is a wonderful place to stay for a weekend getaway. We stayed in a townhouse - spacious living arrangement. The only problem was the parking space as the area is quite narrow. Other than that, it was superb. If you are into swimming, there's the swimming pool. Or if you are sporty, the tennis court awaits.... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our holiday apartments. Yes our carports are quire narrow. They were built back when cars were smaller. We do have a number of parking bays that are available for our guests who have larger vehicles but they are not undercover and are further away from the units. So not ideal for some guests.... More

Beautiful setting, loved the tropical gardens and the tennis courts which we made great use of. Rooms were lovely and the massive shower with double showers was bliss. My teenage boys also enjoyed the location, right on the beach and still close to everything.

Thanks for taking the time to review our holiday apartments and your positive comments. They are much appreciated. We have two styles of units, Townhouses and Villas. We also have three different price ranges which reflect the internal fit out of the unit and its distance from the beach. Regardless of the style, floorplan, or price, all units are two... More

After a long day looking for reasonable priced accommodation for the Christmas period, we came across The Shores Holiday Apartments. The destination was perfect for us.

Cleanliness of units could not be faulted, upgrading of some fittings and fixtures in units could be looked into. The upkeep of the grounds and pools is exceptional. Staff on reception were friendly, efficient and extremely helpful.
