“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

This was I think our 6th visit to beach blue.
However for the first time we had a court yard apartment and have to say we thought it better. We were staying just the one night and didn't have much luggage. (The downside of the ocean view is the several flights of stairs to negotiate with luggage !)
Apartment was spotlessly clean, we did have a small cockroach on the floor but it was dead (rooms obviously sprayed) but living in Australia you get used to them.
Only bad thing I would say about our apartment was I thought it lacked kitchen equipment, as in pans.I could only find a frying pan, which was ok for bacon sandwiches in the morning but it would be difficult to make a meal requiring a pan.
Another good thing -new bed and bigger !!
ideal location, great value for money lovely grounds , pool, and even resident wild life.
we keep returning as it is hard to beat !

Stayed for a couple of nights with my wife and two young daughters. Was concerned that we were on the top floor with ocean views. The views were great but was worried about two adventurous children and the heights. Rang the owners and they were great in moving us straight away which helped us sleep easier. Apartments are big, bright, airy and brilliantly appointed. Everything you could want and so close to Flynn's beach. Made for a perfect stop off on the drive back home.

Room Tip: If you have kids, it may be better to go for a lower level room. I hear they are putting in security...

Great resort for families, great pool, terrific playground and beautiful grounds. We were very impressed! Apartment was huge, clean, great courtyard, very modern and all at a great price. Just across the road from the beach but we only left the resort to eat and shop. Cafe/bar next door had great food at a good price. The only negative thing I can say is the photos on the resort website do not do it justice. We will return.

Beach blue resort was great. Pools and tropical gardens are beautiful. Ideal for families with younger children. BBQ facilities are great as is tennis court. Staff we're very welcoming and friendly from the start and we're very helpful with any enquiries we had. Apartments were spacious and comfortable. Lounge suite needs replacing as old and worn and kitchen was lacking in some basic utensils which at a costly price we expected it to be better equipped. Bedrooms are at the back of the apartments so it's nice and quiet for sleeping. Traffic noisy on pacific drive but you do get used to it. If you don't want to hear chairs dragged across floors and people walking around the other apartments then book a top floor unit. Great location from flynns beach, local shops and restaurants. Port Macquarie only 2 minute drive. We had a lovely holiday, the children had a great time.

Room Tip: Beach facing rooms can be noisy with traffic noise from road. Top floor apartments are quieter as yo...

We stayed just for one night while travelling through and we were impressed by the personal service we received, right from before our arrival to after our stay. We had to pick up the key from a different location, but this was the only down side and we were given plenty of notice and instructions both after making the booking and prior to arriving, The 2 bedroom unit was huge with great views and nicely furnished and fitted. Rooms were neat and tidy and clean. We accidentally left the keys inside and the owner, Cheryl, happily came and opened the room for us. After we arrived at our next location, our son realised he had left the comforter behind and Cheryl went back to look for the comforter and even sent it on for us to our destination location so that our son had it when we arrived. Our son was so happy and we are so grateful so such amazing service. Thanks Cheryl, we'll be back there the next time we visit!

The apartments at Beach Blue Resort are huge with beautiful views and the beach just across the road. Well worth the money and we'll definitely be back and raving about the place to others. The quality service started before I'd even picked up the keys, as the ladies rang to see if we'd like an apartment with beach views rather than the courtyard apartment we'd already booked! Then after I'd left the property, I lost a bag of jewellery while staying at Beach Blue, which Jamie was only to glad to text other guests and help me find it.
Thank you so much, I hope everyone sees how well you look after the place and your guests and they pick Beach Blue Resort as the place to stay in Port Macquarie....

Stayed here few days ago and I'm going back tomorrow. Rooms were very impressive, drive out to pick up keys is a bit of a hassle but no drama really. I'd recommend it and as I said will be staying again
