Okay for the price, but the salesman lied about the location. we didn't stay in the resort much so it catered our needs a place to crash for the night. The staff were friendly and provided advise were to get a good cheap feed. A bit far from the beach though

The rooms need a great need of attention - the first rooms toilet leaked, the next stank of Cigarettes, all 5 rooms booked for our group are in desperate need of a makeover let alone a clean, the variety of sizes the rooms took on for the same value was astounding. Domestic arguments and random groups of "Locals" visiting at... More

Clean, with a kitchenette including a microwave (though the turntable in the microwave was broken). Good sized bathroom and shower, though again a little tired in... More

I am travelling for three years by pushbike around the world, curently around Australia which is my 20th country (already 7000km). due to my financial situation I can spend my nights in all kind of accommodations, but my need for luxury is quite low. it must be reasonable. This resort is a great alternative to the other overpriced accommodations. I... More

I booked for a week, thinking it was a nice resort. Found a cheap nasty motel, dark and dirty. Never had the housekeeping service in a week. Sometimes I found a couple of fresh towels on the bed. Tiny room for 2. No parking. Just couldn't get rid of this "dirtyness" feeling! I am sorry but I have to say... More

I couldn't and didn't even get into my booked room I am a wheelchair user. I booked directly with reception & was assured that I would have an accessible room but when I got there the room was on the 3rd floor. I was offered the first floor by management as it was only up one flight of stairs. Not... More

Just trying to get a room was painful with the phone service constantly cutting in and out. No parking available, despite being told there was plenty. Then treated like I was stupid for my efforts. Was going to be my first time staying here. Yeah, never. Big mistake.
