We spent a week here in a third floor apartment with great views out to the bay. Location was fantastic we could walk to cafes, shops, restaurants and the beach was across the road. The apartment was clean and modern, there was underground parking and great pool. Great place to stay will definitely stay again.

We have stayed here a couple of times now and just love it! Great location, size and friendly staff. Our son loves the pool and the fact can cross the road to the water. Only minutes away from entertainment, eating venues, shopping..you name it! We will be back again soon !

We recently stayed here for 6 nights in a ground floor 1 B/R unit with the loveliest views straight across from us - it was very relaxing just sitting watching the water (if we didn't feel very energetic). Easy walking distance to cafes/restaurants and a little further to the shops makes this an ideal place for a holiday/short break -... More

Very clean and spacious apartments right across the road from the beach. Main lounge and bedroom are air-conditioned. Restaurants within walking distance. Swimming pool and tennis courts here also. Underground car parking. Just a good place to stay.

We recently stayed at Shelly Bay Resort for two weeks. We chose it after reading all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and the fact they we were guaranteed to get a view of the bay. Also, the price was very reasonable considering that the first week of our stay was in school holiday time. The main reasons for our stay... More

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.
