We recently stayed in Unit 11, which is located above the pool area and has a view of the water across the road. The unit wasn't large, but it was adequate for a few days. The 2nd bedroom is quite compact - really only space for the two single beds with a built-in robe in the corner. It was great... More

Nice place to stay. Had a 2 bedroom unit. The first time we stayed the unit was clean and tidy but pictures were a little dusty. The second time our room looked like they had forgotten to vacuum or sweep the floor and our crawling baby was picking up bits under the lounge. Fans also dusty. Nice views though and... More

From the outside it looks like an old dates motel in a small town. However this is a large apartment very well done. We stayed in the apartment with ocean views and so glad we did. Although the purple and orange walls are a bit confronting, the layout is lovely and well worth a stay. The bed is great with... More

Manager was really friendly. Room etc was OK. View was great. The only issue was lounge was disgusting. 50'S style and a cover full of human body matter. My cattle dog wouldn't have slept on. Put spare sheets over and that was OK. My wife and partner travel Asia regularly and have seen much worse . Perfect apart from grotty... More

Great location within easy walking distance to dolphin feeding, cafes, restaurants and park. The units are very basic but they provide everything you need. Good price and lovely pool with plenty of shade and a bbq area. Carparks are undercover and are of a decent size. Iga and petrol station 2 mins drive up the road. Balconies are lovely to... More

we were 4 adults sharing a two bedroom apartment. Clean, comfortable beds and plenty of room for all of us. No oven but the BBQ did the same job. The kitchen had microwave and cooker top and full size fridge that did the job. Lovely pool and as it was out of school holidays and the place wasn't full we... More

We stayed here over the New Years break with another family. Both of us stayed in the 2 bedroom apartments and both were very clean and had everything you needed. We used the BBQ by the pool every night (there is two you can use) and it is undercover. They even supplied the good BBQ wipes to help you clean... More

We stayed for 3 nights in October in unit 12. We were a little sceptical about the description of the apartments amenities, so were pleasantly surprised to find everything as described. I have never stayed in a self catering apartment which had as many amenities as this one. Check in was painless and the staff were friendly and helpful.Great view... More

I was expecting the usual self contained apartment with minimal additions and extras. I was pleasantly surprised to see all the soaps, shampoo etc like a hotel, no bed bugs, comfy beds, and clean as a whistle. More crockery and cutlery than was needed. I didn't even have to get out my own sharp knife out as they already had... More

We stayed here for three nights so we could feed the dolphins. Hotel is about a ten minute walk to where the dolphins come in and overlooks the sea. Our apartment was two doomed and had a nice large balcony which overlooked the pool. We didn't use the pool because if rained the whole time we were there. Managed to... More
