“Management Issues”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2006

Positives - Private Pool and good spa area.
Negatives - We were told that we were TOO LOUD DURING THE DAY in our own private pool as well as in the general communal pool. We were also victimised quite alot for being under the age of 35.
We had torches shone in our faces and yelled at for being too loud as we relaxed in the spa. Fare enough...it was after 10pm...but management really needs to learn how to deal with people at this place!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2006

Our family, 2 Adults, 2 young teens, stayed here July 2006.

The Villas is actually a small complex of villas set around a lovely swimming pool and BBQ area. Each villa has its own garage so there is never a problem with parking. The villas are individually owned and therefore each one is furnished and kitted out differently. We were in number 13, one of the deluxe villas with its own pool.

The villa's pool was small but would be ideal for really hot days when all you wanted was a quick plunge to cool off. We made more use of the main pool as it was bigger and has a spa pool too.

Our villa was very well furnished. The kitchen was well equipped and the rooms were large and airy. There was also a huge TV which the children liked. Some of the furnishings were a little older than most but that suited us as it meant we could relax.

The complex is about 10 minutes walk down to Palm Cove beach which is where all the restaurants are. We enjoyed the walk but it is only 2 minutes by car if you don't. Conversly you are 30 seconds from Captain Cook Highway for all the day trips.

We didn't see much of the management staff but when we did they were friendly and helpful. They have a lot of local knowledge and will book trips for you if you haven't made your own arrangements.

I would definitely recommend.

  • Liked — Location, pool, space, relaxed atmosphere
  • Tips/Secrets — Bring your own loo rolls - only one lot provided
