We stayed here for 8 nights and came here from Sydney to escape the cold winter. We were greeted by heather at reception who was absolutely delightful. Friendly, warm, very informative and a lovely smile and manner. We were on the 6th floor, room 55. Well worth being up high as the view is fantastic. We had a 2 bedroom... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with adult family. The location is great, at the southern end of the strand within easy walking distance to the city. The apartment was a bit "tired" and in need of a paint, but was well fitted out and suited our purpose. The kitchen is very well equipped. One family member was a... More

The views are first class absolute oceanfront overlooking the beach and turtles popping up every few minutes. The gardens and pool area and barbecue are superbly kept and like the apartments immaculate. Parking and security on fobs was good.

Townsville's waterfront is as good a place to be as any, and this resort has the views to match. The apartment was well fitted out, well maintained, overlooked the garden pool and a short walk to the town centre.

Cannot fault this place, has everything you need, even down to a washing machine and a dishwasher. Overlooks the Strand, and Magnetic Island, the ferry terminal is a 15 minute stroll. We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor, with 2 bathrooms, no need to wait here.
