The rooms are great consisting of a open lounge/dining room, a kitchen, bathroom, toilet, master bedroom with queen size bed, ensuite, and balcony, and a kids room with 2 single beds. Its good because there are... More

We stayed for 1 week in a 2 bed apartment on ground floor. Ideal for family with 2 young kids. Very good value for what we paid. Pools were a bit colder and smaller than we expected (really there are 3 pools, not 9 or whatever they claim) but spas help warm you up. Remember to take beach/pool towels as... More

My family with two children aged 3 and 7 have just spent a week in Surfers at this great resort. We spent seven nights and found it fantastic. The room was great with a full kitchen including microwave, oven, dishwasher and full fridge freezer, we had a lounge with Foxtel TV and a dining room. The bathroom had a bath... More

The resort itself looks lovely, the gardens well maintained, the BBQ's cleaned frequently etc... when I read their advert I thought WOW so many pools.. but now I think they do not have enough! There are TOO MANY ROOMS which means too many guests! Their 6 pools + 4 spas were filled with people, the water was extremely cloudy and... More

Its a very pleasant place to relax, even with our sliding door open, overlooking everything from trees to pools, we could still relax in our room and watch tv, but thats about it, we had a room on the 3rd floor, w/ no lifts on the grounds, it got very frustrating to carry our very heavy luggage up and then...

We were really impressed. Sure the rooms are not ultra modern but they were spacious which is wonderful with 3 children. We found the room quiet and well set up. The pools were great and the staff very accomodating. I think value wise is is an excellent choice for families

We loved our stay that this resort and would recommend to families. The apartment was beautifully appointed, very comfortable (especially the beds) and was exactly like the photos. Enjoyed every minute of our stay and would love to go back.
