“Amazing getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Fantastic service. I love the fact that you have 3 balconies. The beach view on one huge balcony and the other 2 balconies the hinterland view. You can watch the sunrise from the beach view and the sun go down on the hinterland view. When the it's night time the moon reflected on the ocean amazing. You can also see surfers as well make sure you stay on the 9th floor upwards. I would recommend Esplanade Beachfront apartments and go back again, you don't have many apartments down the coast with both views. :)

Room Tip: Higher floor where you can see amazing views.

The units are extremely well positioned, and their floor plan really permits breezes from practically any point of the compass.
Our experience with the property managers has always been good.
Some of the "standard" rated apartments are overpriced, primarily because of the standard and condition of the furniture and fittings.

Room Tip: Personal preference would dictate units on level 9 and above, with levels 20 to 22 being best. &quo...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
I agree with you about the views from higher levels, but you would be amazed how many people just love the views from the lower level.(Some guests suffer vertigo)

We do cater for all types of rooms with some being standard, gold, or platinum, and, as all apartments are owned by someone different, the interior decor is different also.

Hope to see you at the Esplanade again soon

Regards Sherri

We have been staying at Esplanade Apartments for approx 18 years, initially for 3 weeks and increasing to 3 months in the later years.
We love the spaciousness of the apartments and the size of the balconies. The ocean view from the front and the hinterland from the back is great. We particularly enjoy the afternoon sun from the bedroom balcony which is sheltered from the sea breeze.
The Managers and staff are very friendly and helpful.
We’ll keep coming back here for our winter getaway every year for as long as we can,

They must be doing something right. We've returned here each year for the last eight years. One of the first things we do following check-in, is to re-book for the following year so as not to miss out. Reasons? Great location, only two spacious apartments per floor, first class facilities and, last but not least, competent and friendly management. What more could you ask for!

We spent a week at the Esplanade, and were pleasantly surprised by the excellent pool and spa - we spent lots of time in them with our young children!!

The beach is across the road, restaurants, supermarkets and cafes walking distance.

We had four adults and two children stating in a three-bedroom apartment and we were very comfortable. The kitchen is set up with all you need (a pair of scissors would have been brilliant - didn't ask as they weren't essential!) and with a washing machine and dryer, we couldn't ask for a more homely, home away from home!!!

Unfortunately my phone call a week prior to organise a weekend arrival outside of office hours was not recorded and as a result, the key was not left out and we had to call the manager who was not impressed. We were then expected to pay our remaining balance although previously arranged for a later time!

Although a terrible first impression, we enjoyed staying here and will return in the future. We will follow-up phone conversations with emails next time!

Thank you for writing an honest response to how you felt, for this is the only way we get to know the areas we could improve on. I am sorry that a key was not left out for you, this system usually works very well, and as for paying up front, that is stated in the confirmation letter, that payment is paid on arrival. I am glad everything worked out for the best in the end.
As far as the request for a pair of scissors in the apartment, I do not find that an unreasonable request, and when you return again(as you say you will) please do not hesitate to ask reception for anything that you feel would make your stay more comfortable, and if possible we would respond favorably.
Kind Regards Sherri & Barry

We have stayed at "The Big E" many time and we will return again as the apartment we stayed in on level 13 is fantastic and very comfortable. The views are great and it is always a pleasure to spend time there, many thanks.

The big E. You must have been coming here for a long time, we don't hear that a lot these days.
Yes, unit 27 is a platinum unit, and it is booked well in advance by return guests, Look forward to seeing you again next year. We now have a 3 bedroom platinum also.
