Mariner Bay was all but perfect for what we needed...me and my partner and my daughter and her two little boys. The 3 bedroom apartment had me and partner upstairs with our own bathroom (small but serviceable) and 'the family' downstairs with their own bathroom. Walking distance to town (maybe 10 mins)....the 3 bedroom apartments are on the top level... More

We recently booked 2 of these apartments through Booking.com and we really cant say a bad word about it. The staff were friendly upon arrival, maybe a little worried at first due to it being a "boys weekend" away but once we arrived they understood it was just seven dads wanting a little RR away from the wife and kids....

Thanks Lee for the great review! Yes we can be a little nervous about groups of singles staying here, as we do not like other guests to be disturbed. That is why we explain our "no party" policy at the outset, so every is happy! Your group of dads having a boys weekend away were a delight to have stay... More

We only stayed here for 2 nights and it was okay. The place felt a bit like home, but that's the point. It just felt as though we were staying in somebody else's home and not like we were on holiday. The price was good and there was nothing wrong with the apartment, just nothing good or special either.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do try to make our guests feel at home here, and of course this is not a luxury apartment complex. We consider that we offer comfortable and spacious apartments which have everything you need together with an attractive and well kept pool and gardens - at an affordable price. More

Walk in rates excellent and pleasantly surprised by the apartments. Clean and spacious, perfect for our 10 day stay within easy walking distance to the main beach and shopping. Kitchen fantastic and had our own street access at rear of property so felt private. Could have moved in! Will definitely be returning for our next family holiday.

The three bedroom apartment was just right four our four adult and two children arrangement. We all had enough space. The pool was good for cooling off at the end of the day and a good alternative to the beach. Accommodation was clean and quiet at the back (#16) and we really enjoyed watching the birdlife and view from our... More

My partner and I stayed here for 9 nights with our one year old. We were impressed by the size of the apartments and the bathroom. We cooked all of our evening meals here and I really couldn't think of anything we needed that wasn't supplied. The small yard at the back was perfect to let our son play in... More

Firstly we were really pleasantly surprised by the spacious nicely furnished apartment, it exceeded our expectations. We had a ground floor unit which allowed for a deck front and back which was just lovely. The outside pool and communal BBQ area was also a bonus and the whole complex had a nice peaceful, relaxed feel. We had everything we needed... More

Quite suprised at how lovely these apartments are with the added benefit of being close enough to town to walk. We stayed in a 3 room apartment which for 6 adults was very roomy and spacious with the added benefit of two balconies allowed us to really spread out. The beds are probably the most comfortable I've slept on having... More
