The location is truly great. Restaurants, shops and the beach are a comfortable walk from your apartment. The staff seem pleasant and accommodating. However, Element's security measures boarder on annoying. Constant checkpoints require your room key to access just about every part of the complex. Also, the pay TV and television are rather hard to navigate. Aside from that, as... More

Spacious modern apartment in convenient location. At first difficult to access with stroller, steps and key locks with very strict security. Added costs for any extras such as towels for pool, high chair and replacements for basic amenities. More amenities - soap powder, detergent, toilet paper, coffee, tea, salt and pepper would be very welcome, especially for short stays where... More

We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment on the first floor over looking the pool and facing the ocean for a two night stay. We didn't have access to the 3rd bedroom but that wasn't an issue. The apartment was huge with a large fully equipped kitchen, dining room and lounge room with 3 balconies. The master bedroom with... More

We booked in over Easter for 5 nights. 3bed 3 bathroom (2 ensuites). Very spacious apartment. Very modern and clean. Our apartment was on the ground and had a huge balcony over looking the pool side (although couldn't see the pool due to the privacy hedge). We arrive early and was informed that the apartment would be ready earlier. There... More

Thank you for your review. We think it is "fab" here also. The barbecues do get used quite a bit from time to time, but so many of our guests take advantage of the great restaurants within our retail precinct. We thought 10 sun lounges would be enough with so many guests taking advantage of our beautiful beach, but I... More

Large, spacious air-conditioned rooms with a fabulous outdoor heated pool. Perfect for couples or families. On-site staff very welcoming and helpful. Fantastic restaurants in the complex including award winning "Harvest". Walk across the road to one of Australia's most beautiful beaches. Day spa located on ground level perfect for massages. We will definitely come again.

My friends and I stayed in one of the two bedroom apartments on the second floor and we had an amazing view overlooking the beautiful pool and the beach. When booking we requested 2 x queen beds and that wasnt a drama (its hard finding places that offer that option- Thanks). Whilst checking in we were welcomed by the most... More
