Stayed here for a week around Anzac Weekend 2015 and loved it. The accommodation was fairly full for the majority of our stay and we could not hear any noise from the other travellers. It is situated very close to some great restaurants, would recommend the Italian restaurant on the corner (unfortunately cant recall the name) and a great German... More

Moonlight Bay Resort is in the perfect location. It is literally only a minutes walk from the Rye Pier, restaurants, RSL and Rye Hotel. You can walk everywhere. And the staff are extremely helpful. The rooms aren't big but neither are they too small. We had a one bedroom apartment and it was just the right size for two people.... More

We stayed at Moonlight Bay Resort as a last minute booking and found the experience to be enjoyable enough. There is a nice pool and each room has a free car spot. The interior was okay, not as nice as some of the pictures posted on here though. It was very plain. A lot of reviewers have stated that they... More

We pulled into town after an unsuccessful attempt to get into the Peninsula Hot Spa. Apparently we had to book ahead. We were advised to return first thing in the morning on the off-chance that someone booked into the early group didn't show up. Not very satisfactory, but we were really looking forward to it. Turned up at the counter... More

Not sure about the resort title, but this is nevertheless a great spot right in the centre of Rye. It is away from the main street but within a very short walk. The room was large and very well appointed. The kitchenette was excellent with all the right utensils and gear

Don't let the motel branded exterior fool you, it sure fooled us! My partner and I had our doubts after reading bad reviews online and finding it out it was motel not a 'resort'. But with a fully equipped kitchen, open plan living area, incredibly cosy bed and the pool and spa area and the edge of your feet, it... More

When we first pulled up to the hotel it looked shabby but once we checked in (super easy check in) and entered the apartment it looked fabulous! the pool area was clean and lovely looking and the location of the resort is good. Its close to the pier and other shops so it was very convenient. The actual apartment was... More

My partner and I stayed here for our anniversary weekend. The staff were extremely accommodating and upgraded our room for free! The room we were given was very spacious and clean. This resort is a very short walk to the beach and all local restaurants. I highly recommend staying here. - Our trip became even more special after my partner... More

I think we were given an upgrade on arrival as we had booked a standard room, but were offered a king spa balcony apartment. The room was modern, clean and spacious. There is reserved parking available on-site. There were candles in the room if guests wanted a romantic ambience. Soap and shampoo are of the liquid dispenser variety, so bring... More

Our stay was excellent, with Terry the owner extremely helpful with our enquiries and requests. We were upgraded to a room with a spa and the facilities were brilliant. Location was also really good, being near the bus stop to/from Frankston and a short walk away from the supermarket, restaurants and the Rye jetty. Would definitely return.
