We stayed for 3 nights on our trip from Brisbane to Cairns. We loved this place. We had a two bed room family room opening up on to the swimming pool and beyond onto the beach. Hotel staff were excellent at all times. Bar and restaurant very good although the breakfast could be greatly improved. Loved seeing the sunrise from... More

Called in without booking a got the last 2 bedroom Apartment. Was modern and clean with comfortable beds. Good facilities. We were only there overnight and so didn't really use the resort facilities. The resort is beachfront so it was an easy walk along the beach into town area for restaurants. Would have stayed longer but the weather wasn't great... More

We had reserved 2 superieur bedrooms with ocean view. They gave us a little family room with sea view... We went back to recepcion to remind them that we had booked the above mentioned. The recepcionist gave us the family room + 1 superieur bedroom with sea view. We complained because we didn't ask for the little family room. She... More

I stayed here for 4 nights with a friend in a 2 bed apartment which was spacious with a great view and had everything we needed, except for a full length mirror!

We only stayed here one night but enjoyed our stay, very friendly staff, a little on the expensive side. But the waves on the beach made it very relaxing. Shower over the bath is a bit ordinary. The location was great as it was an easy walk up town. I would come back and stay again

Bit late with this review but my wife and I spent 3 nights here over last Christmas and had a lovely stay.

A return visit long overdue and our first since renovated. Great situation right on the beach. We really enjoyed our room and our dinner. Sadly we must say that the continental breakfast was a big disappointment. You can order a cooked breakfast but we decided just to go continental. We have dined in many places and this one left us...
