“Great 5 night stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

We booked this resort last minute and got a great deal of 5 nights for $450. We stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment and were really impressed. The apartment was nice and spacious, 2 x bunk beds in one room, a queen in the main with ensuite. The main bathroom and laundry were next to the 2nd bedroom. The kitchen was well stocked, and the entire apartment was spotlessly clean. The resort itself was extremely well maintained, a great heated pool & spa, playground, mini golf, games room made it the perfect spot for our family getaway. The on-site cafe & restaurant provided very nice food and the service we received was faultless. We will certainly return, thank you.

Room Tip: We stayed in 1008, nice quiet room

My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment for a week over the new year period. We found the accommodation excellent. There was plenty of room in the lounge, kitchen area and the bathroom-laundry facilities were wonderful. We enjoyed the pool area and the large communal lounge and outdoor sitting areas. It was only a short stroll to the water behind the complex where we enjoyed a picnic and the view. We also walked down to Sawtell for the New Years Day Parade which is a really lovely local event.

Great resort nestled amongst the gum trees beside a great creek. Great place to bring the kids. Plenty of activities for everyone. We didnt need to leave the resort as we felt very relaxed here.

This is a great resort - it really is a little bit of paradise hidden away from the hustle and bustle.
We loved our week here. There is a bay or a little bit further on a Family beach or a little further on again the ocean all within walking distance. The supermarket is approx 1.5klms away which is an easy walk. The unit is very very clean and the staff very friendly. The only suggestion I would make is that there is a standard lamp put behind the lounge so that you can sit and read a book in the evening. The grounds are a credit to the groundsmen (there are 6 of them).
I would love to holiday here again.

Room Tip: Next time I would like to stay upstairs as I may have a better view of the water. Although the trees...

Me and my partner stayed at this resort for a week in a two bedroom apartment. Both the apartment and the resort were clean and had all the facilities that you need in a self catering resort. You can take a canoe out on the creek which is nice to do. The gym is good with a rowing machine, two bikes, a cross trainer and a multi gym. There is also an indoor sauna and hot tub. There are nice bbq areas a family lounge and a club lounge for timeshare members. It is a very short walk to the creek and beach (although you can't really go round the front of the beach and into the sea because of the currents). The only little issue we had was that the pool could've been heated, it was ok when you got used to the water but a bit of a shock when you first get in. If you're going to this resort I'm sure you'll have a good time, I would definitely recommend it. There is also a shopping centre about a 15 minute walk away with supermarkets, chemist, clothes shops etc.

DAVIDWF, General Manager at Boambee Bay Resort, responded to this review, April 12, 2012
Thank you for your positive review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Boambee Bay. Believe it or not, the pool is gas heated during winter months but we do turn it off in October as the solar heating should then be sufficient to keep the pool warm enough through to Easter the following year. Apologies if this was not the case.

My husband and I stayed there for three days. We were in a one bedroom which was very quiet, separate from the townhome-like apartments. We loved our stay. I found the facilities all perfectly kept, the pool absolutely beautiful and clean and the stay very friendly. I highly recommend this place to stay. Sawtell downtown is also a fun short visit away - a quaint small town strip for small outings. This place is ideal for families with 12 and younger children but we enjoyed ourselves as a couple too.
