We didn't spend much time over our two day stay as we were out and about the whole time, however the room was nice and clean and the staff were friendly. The service with our booking was excellent, couldn't fault it.

We stayed overnight at the resort and it was beautiful. The rooms were not only spacious, with everything you could possibly need, but they were also immaculate. The resort is in a great location just across the road from the water and above some good restaurants. Would definitely recommend this place!

Thank you for your positive feedback, it is very much appreciated. We will review the kitchen inventory at our next staff meeting. I have no objection to popping some more serving items in the apartments if guests think it's required. Many thanks again, Bill. More

Second year we have stayed. 15 nights this time. Always great. perfect location. Love the pools and the bikes. The rooms facilities are excellent. A bit stingy with the bathroom linen but understand they are trying to be eco friendly. All other aspects great!

Thank you Scenic Hotels for a great review. You're spot on, we do try and avoid extra towel changes if guests are happy to hang towels up. We are equally happy to replace towels left in the spa bath every day if required. Thanks again for taking the time to review!! Cheers, Bill. More

The apartment we stayed in was very modern and extremely clean. I loved the things that were provided like beach towels, personal bathroom kits, free wifi and rooms made up daily. Items that you need more of like dishwashing powder etc you will need to ask for more of as they dont get replaced when your room is serviced. All... More

Great family resort and a great location to base your family holiday on the Sunshine Coast. Beautiful part of the world......definitely recommend. Staff was helpful, would recommend the need to hire a car though (although a bus station is accross the road ), convience store around the corner, a playground is close and restaurants below.
