We have stayed a couple of times now and found the managers to be quite abrupt and rude to the children in the pool. They were obeying rules but told to be quiet at only 6pm. Maybe the pool shouldn't be next to the restaurant then!! The resort is lovely and a great location but quite pricey unless you get... More

Stayed at the Nautilus 13/19 July..Our unit was very cosy got the sun rise in the mornings.The bathroom needs an upgrade but the unit overall was pretty good. Having your own laundry was a bonus. The ladies on the front desk were very helpful and always had a smile. Did not use the pool,(weather conditions) Easy 5 minute walk to... More

Excellent location right near the esplanade and great value for money. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. Roomy and we were suprised with how modernised it has been furnished. Clean & affordable family accommodation. Staff were friendly on check in/check out. Pool was heated to 28 degrees and was quiet big. Will stay again on our return visits.

We stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom with a rooftop spa & BBQ. We checked in after reception had closed but that wasn't a problem and we had a detailed email about what to do. Our room and rooftop had a beautiful view. It was smaller than other 2 bedroom apartments we've stayed in but that didn't matter.... More

arrived late at night and found that we had been given a one bed apartment instead of a two bed. After contacting the night contact company the manager was summoned. He then tried to tell us that we had booked a one bed. Production of a booking confirmation for a 2 bed was dismissed as "no good to me". Thank... More

I stayed in a 1 bedroom self catering apartment at the Nautilus for 8 days, with a lovely view of the marina and river. The bathroom was a good size, and had a nice corner spa bath, and the bedroom had a comfortable bed, and a tv. The kitchen had everything you would require and included a convection microwave. The...

Booked a room for 5, it was tiny. One bath for 5 people. Needed more towels as they didn't provide enough - a charge if $2/towel applies. One roll of toilet paper was provide which isn't enough for 5 people - a charge of $1/roll applies. The pool was meant to be heated-it was cold, had mould on the walls... More

Hi Renae L I must say we are confused by your review. There are always 2 rolls of toilet paper supplied in each apartment,one on the holder and one in the cupboard. On request, you were supplied with extra towels and toilet paper at NO charge. We apologise that you were not able to use the pool after you had... More
