Recently stayed at Heron Resort as a shelter from the weather on our way home from a fishing expedition to North West Island.
The weather turned really nasty and we had to detour to Heron to wade out the storm.
The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The could not to enough for us. From selling us fuel to replenishing the ice in our eskies so the catch didn't spoil. They even acted as our login for marine safety as we could not raise VMR on our radio.
The hotel is very well appointed for the price. The food was typical of this style of resort and plentiful.
The marine education for guests is excellent, the snorkelling in the habour absolutely fantastic and the diving is world class.
I would HIGHLY recommend Heron to couples, divers and families as there is a vast range of activities to suit all.
Thanks Heron staff for a fantastic (if not unexpected) stay.
