My family &I have stayed at the Shearwater a number of times now, and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. The staff a really friendly and helpful. The location is great, walking distance to everywhere you need to go, patrolled beach, lifesavers club, playground for the children. Domenicos is in the building and has guest access from the foyer (always a... More

These units offer a variety of features for family holidays or a get away for a couple. We have stayed there many times and always enjoy it. The rooms are spacious, always clean and well maintained. The beds are good and the bath is a Jacuzzi. The resort is on Kings beach which is magnificent and we think that it... More

The small hotel commands ocean views for 180 degrees. The resort is about 10-12 years young however the design features are still extremely modern and very workable. We requested a studio which was adequate in size for the weekend. We had relatives staying in the dual one bedroom and studio and would suggest a one bedroom if you were going... More

It's been a few years since we have stayed at Shearwater. Some things have improved some have dropped away. New management by what appears to be a larger group which manages multiple properties. The rooms are much the same as before clean and quite spacious. New air conditiioners work really well. Shame to see the retail and food places underneath... More

The apartment, which we took for a week, was roomy, clean, functional and possessed all the basic requirements. It was however, soulless. A little more inexpensive artwork, perhaps some unbreakable object d'art and small furnishings would make the place friendlier and more inviting. The worst aspect to the apartment (and I suspect to the building) is the hopeless access to... More

We have stayed here for a week and have thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Its in a great location to the beach and restaurants. Fully equipped kitchens are great for a cheap holiday by cooking for yourself rather than dining out all the time. Only gripe we had was the games room below us can be noisy as is the pool.... More

Great place, we had a 2 bedroom. Second room was a bit claustrophobic but I slept ok. Lovely and clean. Loved the ability to walk to so many different eating places. Kings tavern does great seafood. Good value
