Nice 2br apartment on the Esplanade with plenty of appointments throughout. Don't expect a beach view as this section has trees all along the beach. Managers are very friendly and helpful. The pool & bbq area are really nice but would be quite noisy in holiday season. Within walking distance to shops and restaurants, and a short drive to attractions... More

Great place for a family holiday with young kids with a Resort style walk in pool which is directly opposite the road that runs along the beach. It is also walking distance to pubs and restaurants. Management are more than happy to help you with anything you want, would highly recommend.

Great place to stay with lots of facilities for the family. The pool is great however the playground is a little basic. This does not really matter as a great beach is straight across the road. Good secure parking facilities underground and luggage trolleys available to transport items into the unit. Relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

LOVE this resort!!! I stayed for two nights with my 13 yo son and his best mate, in a 2 bedroom apartment. Yes, the resort is older, but everywhere - our apartment, the pool, reception, all the common areas, were all IMMACULATE. My apartment looked like a display one, it was so clean. The lovely thing is it has all... More

My wife and I we were looking at a 1 bedroom unit for 3 nights but they were all booked, but Brian let us have a 2 bedroom for the same price, good move as it was very generous in size. It was on the 5th floor but lots of trees on the beach side of the road so could... More

A last minute booking and we were amazed at the price during the School Holidays. The location is perfect, right opposite the beach and a short walk to the bars and cafe's. Safe underground parking and well lit, clean walkways. The manager Brian is very welcoming and helpful when we had a few issues with upon arrival. Issues got quickly... More

Good things - location- close to nice restaurants and right on the esplanade which has a great walking track, quiet resort (I think there may be a lot of permanent residents there), and there is a lift! Apartment a little out-dated, enough room for 2 adults, the bed is rather small and the kitchen is only adequately stocked (why can't... More

We didn't book and just rocked up and still got a room for five nights. I don't recommend that but it worked for us. Brian and Chris are fantastic managers and helped us with where to go and with downstairs parking issues. Our room was on the fifth floor no 42 which is a two bed two bath big lounge... More
