“Very Dirty Room”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2008

Resort itself looked nice but weather not good enough to try out facilities. Our room had good quality furnishings and fittings. However, the room was very very dirty. Wouldn't recommend you stay here if you suffer from allergies like I do. Dust everywhere, carpet filthy, makeup stuck to ensuite cupboards etc. Such a pity as room itself was of decent quality. Very very disappointed. Try the Atlantis next door. Checked out a room in case we stay in that area again, and spotlessly clean.

  • Liked — Appearance of reception. Immaculate.
  • Disliked — Very dirty unclean room.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2007

This resort is just beautiful. We took our two young sons for 5 nights and its the perfect location for families. Lots of grassed areas to run around, lovely pool and the beach is very close. There is also a tennis court, small gym, internet access and basketball court plus BBQs.
2 bedroom apartment was very clean and quite large. Large balconly we had too. The only down fall is that there are no air con or fans in the bedrooms. Request a room in one of the towers though if you have alot of luggage so you can use the lift. We noticed only the main towers had lifts.

Definately would go again. Very quiet complex too. You can't hear the highway or the airplanes.

Stayed February 2007

We booked a two bedroom apartment. On arrival, check-in went smoothly and receptionist was extrememly friendly and helpful. We got really lucky and were given a top floor apartment (124) - fantastic views and an extra rooftop balcony. We walked in and found our apartment extrememly clean and beyond our expectations. The kitchen was a full size kitchen with everything you would need to cook etc. with as well as a full size fridge and a dishwasher. The lounge area was good size with a big TV, DVD player and VCR. There was a huge dining table. The laundry was off the kitchen area and had a washing machine and clothes dryer. Then down a hallway the bedrooms were located. Second bedroom had two singles. Both rooms were a decent size. Bathroom had a bath/shower and toilet. Main bedroom had walk-through robe and ensuite with shower/toilet. Apartments are beachfront - about a half minute walk on a path through the sand dunes and the beach is beautiful. Apartment complex seemed secure - you need your keys to access everywhere. Swimming pool isn't huge but we stayed when the complex was full and when we went to swim there was hardly anyone around. There is also a full size tennis court, bbq's, a four hole putting green and a half basketball court. The airport is across the road but we didn't find the aircraft noise annoying. If you were planning to sightsee you would need a vehicle - e.g. Maroochydore is about 10-15 minutes away. We planned a relaxing getaway with our two kids (2 and 5) and we certainly had that.

  • Liked — Close to beach and very clean
  • Disliked — We had to leave
  • Tips/Secrets — Take beach towels with you

Hotel was easy to find, right off the main hwy. We got there late in the day, so reception was closed, however getting our keys didn't take too long (we just rang the number given).
We had an apartment on the top floor, so a few flights of stairs. Rooms were fine, kitchen a good size and lounge was fine. All clean. No a/c in rooms however, and an electrical storm had wiped out our a/c so our first night was pretty awful. Our a/c couldn't be fixed the next day so we were put in the only other spare apartment the place had, which happened to be an utterly lavish apartment with a massive balcony, tv, kitchen and private bbq. We stayed in this apartment for five nights for the price of our old one. Tv only had about three working stations however, which was quite annoying. Dvd player worked though.
Great pool, five minutes to the beach, a small gym and great tennis courts made our stay here fantastic.
