Probably the most family friendly location on the Island. They do some good deals for families and couples alike if you have a look on the website (Free wine !) Great facilities, Units are still new and roomy. Staff very friendly. Great spot.

I have stayed in this resort once before and it was great so no wonder I booked again. Well once again wasn't disappointed, got upgraded to a superior queen room and it just makes the difference. Honestly if you are a couple those extra $ for a superior are well worth it. They are situated at the entrance of the... More

We had a lovely stay for 2 nights. The accommodation was looking great and clean. The staff was really helpful. They called the buscompany when the bus didn't stop near the accommodation and arranged that the next bus trip was free of charge. They also get our laundry of the dryline when a tropical thunderstorm came by. Surely great service!

This is a lovely resort. Eileen, the owner obviously takes great pride in making sure that everyone feels welcome. The property is extremely well kept. Everything is clean and tidy, and the spacious Bures are arranged to give a sense of privacy which works well. The pool is beautiful , and is nicely shaded from the sun in part by... More

Excellent, cleverly designed accommodation giving a sense of privacy yet with a community village atmosphere. Great poolside area with BBQ facilities, tennis court, games room, kiosk (with lattes, beer, wine) & laundry facilities. Bus stop at the door & beach across the road. We love it!!

The resort is very clean and the gardens are just wonderful. The room is spacious and clean. Lots of wildlife around and the island is beautiful to visit. Would recommend this resort to anyone wanting to relax from families - couples to solo travellers.

If you like hiking, walking & riding scooters while taking in some great local pubs this is the place. Still at one with nature, not over run with high rises but you can still camp/picnic or fine dine...each end of the spectrum.

We recently stayed here for 4 nights with overseas inlaws. What a place! Beautiful spacious clean rooms, immaculate gardens, lovely sparkling pool and no one in sight. The licensed kiosk was very cheap and was a minute walk to the beach. What I loved was the abundant wildlife that inhabitated the resort. So many friendly lorikeets that would eat out... More
