Check in was easy with Karin's help. Room was clean and well equipped except it didn't have a laundry as I expected! Bit of a problem - never!! Karin gave me access to the room suite next door which did have laundry. That's service!! This resort is well situated right on the Kings Beach play area, opposite the beach and... More

Delightfully surprised when I arrived and the lovely receptionist explained the other room has its own front door (tiny hall way connection) Fabulous for the teenagers - for privacy ! Great view, great facilities and super clean!!! However, the lounge arrangement is somewhat far away from the TV- although the who needs a telly when the beach is across the... More

Shearwater was good, clean and convenient. Close to beach and good views of the ocean. Just didn't have the wow factor, probably wouldn't stay there again. Way too pricey for what it offered. Pool boring and dated. One good thing was the breakfast vouchers down stairs at the Italian Restaurant. Just a tip don't go to the Thai restaurant for... More

Had the opportunity to stay here for one night (Sadly would have loved more) and found the apartment to be very nicely presented, clean and comfortable. Views of kings beach from the balcony were fantastic and you could just sit there all day enjoying the weather and people watching. Service from staff was fantastic and would recommend to anyone

We stayed here for 5 days and had a very relaxing time. Our room and balcony was facing the beach giving us a wonderful view. Although everything was more than adequate this place is more like a conference centre. Reception is only manned for core hours so arriving on a Sunday afternoon to find the main doors closed is disconcerting.... More

Unit itself was nice and clean and had a view of the water, however we did have some problems. 4 glass panels are located... More

Location great however our room was a little dated old noisy air conditioners , noisy clothes drier, large red stain on carpet and shelves from fridge stacked in pantry (minimal storage for food). Found the pool and the area a little to tiny.

Wonderful resort on the doorstep of one of Queensland's best beaches. Staff friendly and helpful, and rooms better than we remembered from our previous visits. A walk to all of the best eateries .. including fantastic Italian downstairs. Outstanding!

After our last stay we decided we would stay again mainly for its location. We had a 1 bed apartment with sea views which were great. The apartment had good facilities and bed but was very tired and in need of a face lift. The balcony did not look like it had been cleaned and the glass was hard to... More

Excellent holiday resort catering for young and old. The apartment was located on the pool level which had a lovely spa, pool and children's paddle pool, it overlooks Kings Beach which is a great family friendly beach with amenities for all the family. No need to go anywhere else once there. Everything you needed in the apartment was there, second... More
