This is a beautiful little resort. Eileen and her staff are very friendly and helpful and, most important, very efficient. There is obviously a high level of forward planning in terms of cleaning as this was a last minute booking and I was immediately shown to a spotless room on my arrival at midday. I was upgraded (thanks Eileen) to... More

Have just spent 7 days at this wonderful little resort. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed for a relaxing family holiday. This is a small family operated resort and the owners take great pride in maintaining the grounds and facilities. We particularly enjoyed the rainbow lorikeets and curlews wandering the grounds. There is a great pool, big... More

Although the resort is clean & very pretty we were greeted by one of the rudest receptionist name Angelina. We were promised our room at midday & as we were only staying one night we wanted to make the most of every minute so had carefully planned our stay. We arrived at the resort at 12:30pm to be told we... More

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!

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.
