    We stayed here for one night before we headed off for the islands and it was perfect for just that. The rooms were clean and comfy and the facilities are everything you need - travel desk, restaurant, Internet, tv with films on in the cafe area, laundry (with good machines), pool area and sunbeds.

    We stayed 2 nights either side of a stay on one of the islands, and for this purpose it is ideal. As a middle aged couple we wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer as it is really geared up for backpackers. However, the rooms we had were spacious and clean, and we slept well. Both times the rooms had... More

    we stayed here one night as stop over from Sidney to Samoa. Nice place, good food, a little bit loud with youngsters partying. Combination of backpacker hostel with swiming pool and some other resort elements. Nice beach could use some more places in the shade. But not a bad choice.

It is geared up with sunbathing seats, kayaks, palm trees for shade, and my favourite, hammocks.
