This place could be really good - the 2 bed apartments are spotless, large and well fitted out and the facilities are also very good. But first appearances can be deceptive and ours were. Basically, the resort staff need to understand that people go there to have fun. There are so many rules that you spend most of your time making sure you're not contravening them - don't hang towels over the balcony, don't jump in the pool, don't put your head under water in the spa, don't enter the lounge room unless you're over 18, dont leave rubbish in your bin when you leave or you'll be charged $30, don't check out late or it could cost you $500. The apartments are also very noisy as there are busy roads all around, there is a pub next door and you can easily hear noise between apartments. Listening to someone next door use the toilet while lying in bed at night isn't pleasant. I was really disappointed as I think the resort could be great for families but the staff make it clear that children are to be seen and not heard. Even the games room (which by the way is full of game machines you have to pay for) has rules about using the games and only having one game when others are waiting, not eating in the room, not making too much noise....There are so many apartments in Mandurah that are newer and nicer and better located that I would stay elsewhere and leave the time sharers to their rules and regulations.
