First time to WCR. 'Resort' it is not, but clean, basic and tidy and would probably suit families on a budget. Stayed in the concrete block building in the rear. Good attempt been made to modernise, however was cold and stormy when I was there and the tile floor throughout made it chilly. Comfy bed. Owner very friendly and accomodating.... More

Awesome stay!!! Resort is a few minutes walk from a wonderful beach! The resort itself has a pool and a very nice surrounding ( Visible when you are in). People are very helpful and even without a booking before a wonderful stay is guaranteed! Rooms are very clean and comfortable and you are able to hear the waves at night.... More

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at this motel where the new manager,Diana,made us very welcome. The rooms were extremely clean and beds clean and comfortable. The large 3 bedroom unit was quiet and private and provided us with a great poolside spot with options to sit in the sun or shade, to swim in the pool,... More

We had a great week at this motel and found no fault with the facilities. It is a short walk to a beautiful surf beach and there is a dairy and restaurant close by. We only used the pool and spa once because we preferred to swim at the beach, but they were clean and well-maintained. Our bed was very... More

I really think the word 'Resort' shouldn't be in the title, it's very misleading. It's really just an average motel. It was comfortable enough and the staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. There's a fabulous beach just a few minutes walk away,you can't see it from the motel. My cell phone had no coverage at the motel. It is... More

Hi my name is Dianna, and I have recently taken over the Management Rights at the Resort. Maybe "Boutique Motel" is a better term, but with some improvements "Resort" it can be. I thank you for your constructive criticism, and have taken note of your comments. In the upcoming months I hope to install Cellphone boosters to extend the cell... More

We were disappointed with our night here. I booked it because it had a restaurant which meant we didn't have to bring food, however it was closed. We booked the studio room which was tiny and we couldn't get any Internet connection. Staff very friendly though.

Friendly and helpful hosts together with great location by a beautiful beach are just the start of the positives about this resort. Our two bedroom apartment had plenty of space. Kitchen with all appliances and equipment you could need and outdoor area which we found to be private. Great pool and lots of nice thoughtful little touches really made our... More

It is an ok place until you go to bed and it is very uncomfortable, almost unacceptable for the prize you pay. Shower is good though and, yes, you don't have privacy at all as you share the patio with everybody else. Swimingpool is in the carpark and patio and rooms are right next to the road, so noisy.
