We booked online at a great deal for 7 days stay. Once arriving we were booked in to room 13, this is right by the pool so no privacy if wanting to keep curtains open, the management were very accomodating and moved us to a room two floors up. There was unlimited cooking utensils to look after yourself, two bathrooms and a nice warm decor throughout. The fans worked well when you had the doors open on the balcony.
The staff were very polite and helpful for our needs, pointing out where local restauants and shops were.
It is a two km walk to the large shopping centre which has all your coles, target, cinemas etc, the cafes and other restaurants are all within 1 km. The beach and river is a stone throws away which was great for taking a magazine to relax.
The pool was a great size to either do laps or just lay around, a bbq is also available. The spa can also be used but the jets tend to "blow" you away so did not last very long in there.
The only down side of the trip was that generally at hotels, or even self contained appartments that I have been to before they still stock up on your general items throughout your stay. This was not so here. I did not pack body wash or moisturiser as this is usually supplied and I can get away with not packing unneccessary items.
Also annoying was that if you used the limited sachets of sugar and coffee you had to get your own, what was even more ridiculous was the supply of two toilet rolls and again you run out you buy (sold at reception for $1 a roll, we went to coles and got better stuff for the same price) so I ended up having to spend approx $30 on things that if knowing I would have packed my own supply as I had plenty of it at home.
So plan ahead or be aware of not getting caught out on the toilet.
overall I really enjoyed my stay and would just bring my own supplies next time, as I went there for relaxation and left there achieving this. also if you have time use the lovely girl in the beauty room for a quick 30 min massage will make your holiday even more worthwhile.
