We had a very pleasant single night stay at the Shelly Bay Resort. The person at reception, Lisa, was really welcoming and helpful and the room was clean and large. The Resort is very centrally located and we really enjoyed our stay.

The stay did not start off well - I'm guessing the raining day didn't help much ... we were unable to get to the room without getting wet, then it was reading through the list of rules. None of the curtains in the rooms or the side could be opened without a lovely view of the apartments next door having... More

The restaurant on ground floor is very convenient and you can easily walk to many others. An afternoon and morning stroll on the... More

Units are great, roomy and clean. Verandahs to view the beach from. Also come September to November is Whale Watching season for those interested in getting... More

We stayed in a 2bedroom overlooking the esplanade and water. There is an Indian restaurant downstairs and a couple of bars you can walk too. The room was tidy and clean, very spacious, full kitchen, laundry, very comfy beds and the lady on reception was lovely.

There was everything there that you would need even down to pegs. Lovely and very professional couple managing place and they quickly fixed the wi fi system next working day and gave us double allowance. Lift... More

We stayed at this property for two nights. We booked at Booking.com and had requested a top floor room. When we arrived we had been given a second floor room, when I requested the top floor I was advised that it would cost more than the booked price. I agreed to pay, and was told they were fully booked but... More
