I stayed one night while passing through the area with work. I couldn't get over the personable service and attention to detail. While I had a pleasant stay the restaurant was a great experience and felt like I had know the staff for Years Nothing was to much, they even came and found me when my entree was ready as... More

Because it is family run, Kelly's gives you all the warmth of personal, friendly commitment to an enjoyable stay. The cabins are quiet and well equipped with all mod cons and excellent dining. The heated swimming pool and hot pool are an added delight in winter months.

We stayed a night here on our way north. A cute place with great facilities for kids (nice pool, tennis courts, fooz ball, pool, outdoor movies etc). Villas were OK, good basic facilties, kids loved the mezzanine floor however wouldnt suggest small children for them as the ladder was a little bit steep! There is a nice beach a block... More

Only a short stroll (about ten minutes) from the beach, these villas were great to stay in (I will mention my friends and I were finishing a long trip at other hostels and lodges that weren't nearly as nice as this where the showers and toilets were in two separate facilities). Here, the self-sustaining small villa was great because it... More

I will preface this review with the fact that I was only there one night and left the next morning so I didn't experience anything but the room that I shared with my sister and her family. We got a room with a loft. The loft fits two singles and a double. I stayed in the loft. You have to... More

We loved our stay at Kellys Beach Resort. The staff were lovely. We all enjoyed the heated pool, tennis court and games room. The beds in the villa were really comfortable. The villa was a little out dated with tiny bathroom but was clean and tidy and great value for money. We will go back. Bargara is a lovely small... More

This resort has definitely seen better days. The blinds in the loungeroom and bedroom didn't work, the electric plug was out of commission and there was a general air of grubbiness throughout (not to mention the previous resident's food in the freezer). The whole place reeked of Mortein (or something similar) and felt a bit toxic for an 'eco-lodge'. To... More

Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback, it is vital for us so we know where we can improve. We are disappointed you didn't enjoy your time with us Unfortunately providing wifi to 40 individual villas on 5.5 acres of well established gardens is not easy, nor inexpensive so we do charge at this time. We do have... More

It was a great stay, awesome place. Have been before and willbe back again! The kids loved the heated pool, that was a real bonus! It is a tranquil relaxed property. There could be some external repair work done before it goes to run down but all in all a great comfortable family friendly place to stay.

The kids nearly lost their stuff...they loved the beds upstairs in the loft, their very own cubby house. A little old, could do with a little refresh, but very clean and homely :) Great staff, couldn't do enough for us. We will definantely be back!!!

A wonderful hideaway, close to the beach and nature . Simple down to earth , comfortable accommodation. Beautiful pool and natural surroundings. Good restaurant on the grounds and very friendly and helpful staff. A walk to Bargara township, and not far by car to Bundaberg where you have all the facilities of a large, pleasant country town. And very close... More
