Great spot. Surf across the road, and plenty of eateries within walking distance. Enjoyed Underwater World immensely. Word of caution though. The windows to the balconies need to be marked with some tape as it is very easy to hurt yourself walking into a sheet of glass

Just back from a 2 week stay, found the rooms to be very comfortable. Definatley worth having an ocean view room. We were concerned about some of the reviews regarding the noise, however didn't find it a problem once the doors were shut, could be noisy at times, however the view negated that issue, and slept with the doors closed...

We stayed here for 8 days recently and loved its location and price. Being right across the road from Alexandra Headland beach is its best feature, the main road you have to cross is a little noisy during the day but at night it is reasonably quiet. If noise bothers you I suggest a room at the back or on... More

Hi Realife01 Thank you for your very detailed review.

Glad you were able to enjoy the beach. Walking along the beach to Cotton Tree is one of my... More

We had a room on the ground floor just up from reception. It backed on to main road so from 5am traffic noise was bad to 8am. Also we had a Alfresco area you could not see beach as the wall was 6ft tall no view of ocean.

The two bedroom apartment was beautiful, clean and had everything we could possibly need for our stay. Our two children aged 4 and 6 loved the spa bath and the swimming pool as well as the rooftop bbq area. The staff were so friendly and helpful....it was just lovely.
