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

We stayed in apartment 12 which was on 1st floor and at front of property which was great. Very clean, close to everything including where dolphins come in for a feed, and handy to everything. Staff very helpful.

First time stayed here in 2007 when travelling to Australia to visit my sister. After a 26 hour flight from the UK she suggested stopping on the way from the airport to hers and said why not go see the dolphins. We literally fell across the place and i loved it, after the last day and a half i found... More

This is where I always stay when taking the kids up to Tin Can Bay. It has modern facilities, a small pool and family rooms with bunk beds. It's nice and close to where the dolphins come in to feed and on the main road, across from the park and inlet. God value and convenient.

Stayed here in February, have booked it for January but couldn't make it due to the floods, so they were happy for us to use this room at a later stage. Tin Can Bay is really small so I guess every location will be good, saying that, it was absolutely lovely. It was a beautiful very sunny weekend and we... More

Stayed there a night to feed the wild dolphins at Tin Can Bay. A peaceful seaside resort location. There is a nice little pool for the kids to enjoy and the dolphin feeding was certainly the highlight there. The feeling of wild dolphin right in the waters with you and you get to hand feed them is simply fantastic! The... More

We stayed in an upstairs two bedroom apartment for a night in order to visit and feed the wild dolphins the following morning. The room looked lovely and the view from the verandah would have been good if the weather had co-operated. The problem was that our apartment smelt like wet dog. It was from the lounge and the clothes... More
