We had an enjoyable ten days here, having rented a car after coming up on the Spirit of Queensland. We arrived on a Sunday after 2:pm and found the reception unattended. However, there was an intercom and we found our keys in the lock box. They should probably tell people about it before hand, because there were others just as... More

Apartment was spacious, but in need of a modern refurbishment, and a thorough clean. Outdoor pool and BBQ in similar state. Some on site amenities closed (bar & gym) with reception closing after 6. Wifi limited to reception area. Comfortable for a weeks stay - AC, all kitchen and bathroom facilities in check, and a convenient location with car.

Fully equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable . A very central location and an easy drive to everywhere we wanted to explore. The pools and grounds were beautifully maintained .... More

Great place to stay, close to the airport, the esplanade and Cazaly stadium. Clean and quiet, and all the staff were very friendly and helpful with all our enquiries. We stayed in the 2 bedroom deluxe, which was very spacious and comfortable.

We had 4 adults and 2 kids (teenagers) in a 3 bedroom villa. Good value for money not far from the middle of town. Friendly staff, well maintained facilities and spacious. Sound system was a bit dated and the dishwasher was broken, but these were minor things. We would stay here again, especially with a large group.

This place was great. We were traveling with our 2yr old so this place was perfect. It was very big and spacious for a 2 bed apartment. There was a few things that had to be cleaned such as the sheets(they looked mouldy) and the roof needed dusting and also the floor looked clean but it left your feet dirty.... More
