We booked this property on Booking.com which had wonderful pictures of a lagoon. On arrival we were told that the lagoon pool (which apartments look over) was undergoing maintenance and had been drained. We were not advised of this and when I asked reception at the resort they suggested that perhaps they had not given the site the information in... More

Pool/lagoon was empty, staff average, not happy with holding of money for security and then not releasing it for 5 - 7 working days. Only 2 satchels of terrible coffee in room and 2 little things of milk. Would except better. Don't think I would stay there again.

I normally visited Port Stephen area in summer. This time, however, I came with my family and family friends. It was very quite and comfortable. Also the location was really convenient as it's midway between Anna bay and Nelson Bay.

We stayed here for 2 nights during the June long weekend. Despite the wet weather we really enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was immaculately clean, rooms are spacious and we were upgraded to the 1br swim-out room through wotif.com's winter promo. The pool was quite dirty (perhaps not maintained very often during winter months?) but we quite enjoyed the in-room... More

Got a good deal online in low season (winter) so this was great value (but I can't comment on their summer prices). The pool is amazing and adds a lovely look to the whole place even in winter. We used the outdoor but heated spa and lap pool - both lovely (and clean etc). We also used the steam room... More

It is great to hear you enjoyed our resort.
