4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here once before, I was very happy with the service provided at the front desk after they helped shuffle rooms around even though they were fully booked. The rooms are fairly clean, got the 1 bed ocean view and it had a dryer, washer, kitchenette with microwave. Stayed here with kids, very comfy for them. Very central to all... More

We booked into this hotel for three nights. The first night we had a 'wonderful' view of the parking lot accompanied by the loud screams from teenagers fighting and skateboarding. The last two nights we had a room higher up, but once again facing the car park only this time we could see the pool. Our main concern with these... More

What a terrible "resort" Pfft Resort??? It has self catering rooms, how is this a resort? We arrived 2 hours early and were hoping to check in early, it was pouring rain but the receptionist (Niluh?) didn't even check to see if our room was ready, she said "check in isn't until 2pm!" So we sat in the car (with... More

Great location. Staff professional, friendly and super helpful. My room was clean, comfortable and fitted out to allow basic self-catering. I am happy that they manage cost by dispensing with daily servicing of the rooms. You can pay to have it done, but I prefer to laze around without interruption and just tidy up as I go. The free parking... More

Great Location if you get the ocean view rooms, the loft rooms are also very nice. Rooms service was good but found that the food and the accommodation was expensive for the area. The pool is the best feature and they have enough pool lounges you don't have to go up there and reserve a spot! Nice stay if you... More

It is just a rental apartment there is no room service it, no housekeeping, horrid water pressure too,,What really gets me though, is the extra fees to have extra towels. Show me a woman... More

Fresh towels are available daily should you require a daily housekeeping service, however fees do apply. Alternatively we would be happy to tailor a package including daily servicing to suit your needs. I apologise for the lack... More

Don't get me wrong, the place is well situated, with plenty of food and drink venues close-by; it was well kept, and had very lovely admin staff. But it just didn't have that feeling of wonder when you walk in. The fact that parking is an additional fee was only saved because we found parking not too far away for... More

We book this hotel for a weekend away for the start of 2015. The pictures look nice and the property's name Oaks Waterfront Resort would mean something special and grand but it didn't lift up to its name at all!! It would be more appropriate to name it "Oaks Waterfront Rental Apartments" like its neighbour Waldorf Apartments. Definitely not a... More
