Excellent location, right across from Four Mile Beach, and across from the Surf Lifesaving Club, where there is excellent food. We booked two suites.
The receptionist seemed to know little about the place, and was quite lacking in initiative. We had booked one of the room as being a room for a disabled person, but while it was possible to use a wheelchair there for the most part, it was not a proper disabled room. The shower was not designed for disabled access, so we asked for a plastic chair to put in the shower, and received a lecture about the lack of safety of using a plastic chair. Only because we insisted, did we got one put in the shower . The toilet was inaccessible and with no handrails, so was difficult for the person in the wheelchair.
The second suite was actually on two levels, which I didn't like because you had to be careful going up and down the two stairs which were between the dining area and the living room. Beds were lovely. The pool was heated (it was midwinter so that was appreciated) and was beautiful. The units did not seem to be well maintained, marked walls needed a paint.
