The poolside units are handy with the kids, but the cleanliness is questionable. For a fairly expensive stay, the units could be cleaner, less dusty and certainly more self contained. It was hard to cook meals with the utensils on hand. Perhaps the previous guests helped themselves to stuff, but management should check this.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom poolside apartment which was amazing. The kids loved spending most of the day in the pool whilst we were able to supervise from the patio. The apartment had everything a family could want.

WOW! We had 11 girls staying for a weekend away in the Private 4 bdrm Beach house, it was amazing, photos don't do it justice. Plenty of space for all to relax, own private pool, rooftop jacuzzi with beach views. Recommended to so many people. Already planning a family get together here. Other friends also stayed in 2 bdrm apartment... More

Fantastic pool for kids and adults alike - a standout feature of the resort - so big it never gets crowded. The beach is just a short walk over the sand dune and is perfect for a morning or evening walk, or just to sit and watch the waves.

We stayed in a four bedroom apartment with our 6 children. There was heaps of space and they had an awesome time with access to the pools from the outdoor area. Resort and apartment were very modern and clean and secure. Situated in a quiet location, close to beach and only a short drive to supermarkets etc. Would defiantly stay... More

We stayed in a poolside 3 bedroom villa. The pool at your back door and beach at your front door and a roof top terrace to unwind and take it all in. Together with a well appointed, clean apartment made for a great getaway.

Our family of 5 always stay in the 3bdr Villa which fits us all in perfectly. The whole resort is so well maintained and Villas are spotless. Our kids wonder freely and safely throughout the resort. We thoroughly enjoy our outdoor BBQ area with our own gate to swim out to the pool/spa. Close to everything for us. See you... More
